Another round of images have leaked from the set of Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-man, and while the images do not yet have the benefit of storytelling, special effects, or a Hall & Oates superhero score, the best you can really say about them so far is: Yep. That’s Spider-man all right. Congratulations, Marc Webb: You’ve created a superhero who looks exactly like all the other iterations of that superhero. Maybe that’s the point. Maybe people don’t want change. Maybe they just want the same story told repeatedly with different actors. Look! Spider-man! He wears a red and blue costume; he shoots webs; he swings from building to building; he saves the planet and gets the girl. In other words: Yep. Spider-man.
