We've glimpsed on-set shots from "Spider-Man" of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, but we haven't seen anything official -- until now, that is. Today on the film's Facebook page, Columbia Pictures unveiled the first look at Garfield in a redesigned Spider-Man costume, an image that will likely undergo intense fan scrutiny over the next few days.

Directed by Marc Webb, the as-yet-untitled reboot of the film franchise returns the Peter to high school, and is expected to draw inspiration from "Ultimate Spider-Man," by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley. In addition to Garfield and Stone, "Spider-Man" stars Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Julianne Nicholson and Annie Parisse.

The film, which began production last month, will be released on July 3, 2012.
