It's been nearly four years since audiences last saw his acrobatic web spinning prowess.
And now Spider-Man is back, this time with Andrew Garfield playing the iconic superhero.
Colombia Pictures today released the first image of the British actor in the infamous blue and red suit, with a few visible changes.
The suit looks a little more high-tech and modern than that worn by Tobey Maguire, who played the iconic character for three hit movies - the last one back in 2007.

Teenage girls today think Lee Marvin is icky.
Because Spidey is a scrawney runt. In the comic he is thin, wirey and shorter than 6 foot. I believe he is either 5'8 or 5'10. There are other major super heroes that are short also. Wolverine is 5'8.
Lee Marvin is icky, like most people who have been dead for over 20 years....
I can’t think of too many tough-guy younger actors, but I would say Jeff Bridges (chiefly because of his role as Rooster Cogburn), Dwayne Johnson, Michael Clarke Duncan can fulfill tough-guy roles.
Dead for over twenty years and still a better actor than Robert Pattison.
Kiefer Sutherland, Tom Cruise, Vin Diesel, Mark Wahlberg... on screen anyway... maybe.
He didn't shave his chest and legs...
First time something hits that silly helmet, his nose is crushed. (Well, in the real world at least.)
Nobody beat Misty Mundae as "Spiderbabe."

Why do they keep getting scrawny runts to play Spidey?
Because Peter Parker is a scrawny runt?
I’ll toss out Mark Valley (the Human Target series), Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck), maybe Nathan Fillion. Others? Hmmmm Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Tim Dekay (White Collar).
I frankly think the problem (or much of it) is the ‘pretty factor’. Most of the so called stars are pretty boys. They may be able to (physically) do the job, but they don’t have the looks that say ‘tough guy’. They’ve been too well taken care of. No Charles Bronson or Lee Marvin to be seen.
IMHO, of course.
Kiefer Sutherland is one. Matt Damon is pretty badass in the Bourne series (love those flicks). Matt’s butt buddy, Ben Affleck is a big pussy though and hardly comes across as badass in any flick he’s been in. In fact, Affleck best portrays himself in Chasing Amy as a yuppy.
