We could make a bunch of spider and bug-related puns here, but instead we’ll just simply announce the arrival of the first official trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man. Columbia Pictures is revamping the franchise with a new director – Marc Webb – and a new Spidey – Andrew Garfield – after three Spider-Man films featuring Tobey Maguire in the lead role and Sam Raimi behind the camera.

Hitting theaters on July 3, 2012, The Amazing Spider-Man is an origin story, however the exact details of the plot haven’t yet been totally revealed (more should be known by the end of this weekend after the film hosts a panel and Q&A at Comic Con).
