Cape Town – Sony Pictures Entertainment has released the very first image of new Spider-Man Andrew Garfield in the famed superhero costume.

The scene sees a battered and bruised Peter Parker walking along a desolate city street at night with raindrops falling around him.

It is the first official image of Garfield in the role made famous by Tobey Maguire in three Spider-Man movies. The as-yet untitled fourth instalment serves as a prequel to the first Spider-Man movie and no details on the plot have been released yet.


What is known about the movie is the star-studded cast that director Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) has assembled. Besides Garfield in the lead role, Emma Stone has been cast as love interest Gwen Stacy. Martin Sheen and Sally Field will play Peter Parker's guardians Uncle Ben and Aunt May after his parents (played by Campbell Scott and Julianne Nicholson) die.

It is expected that Rhys Ifans and Irrfan Khan will, respectively, play villains named Lizard and Proto-Goblin.

Garfield, who has been nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in The Social Network, recently shared his fears about taking on the Marvel superhero role. "I'm very, very excited and nervous about Spider-Man – I'm working hard to make sure I don't mess it up – physically, mentally, emotionally," he told Total Film magazine.

"It means as much to me as it does to everyone else. I can objectively look at myself and be like, 'You better not screw this up man. I'm going to be so pissed off with you if you do."

Spider-Man 4 is expected to release in 3D in July 2012.
