Comic Book Movie has posted a leaked image from Marvel Comics' "All-New Marvel NOW! Previews" March-April issue that puts out an intriguing tease for longtime Spider-Fans: "Amazing Spider-Man" is set to return to the stands with a new #1 issue by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos later in 2014.

The most noticeable aspect of Ramos' image are Spidey's threads: clearly the pre-"Superior Spider-Man" version of the costume. Even more intriguing is that Spider-Man is clearly unmasked and smiling in a decidedly un-Otto Octavius way. Is it possible that Peter Parker is up for a return?

Even if the Spider-Man on the cover is Peter Parker, there's no guarantee that the series takes place concurrently with "Superior Spider-Man." (Nor, in fact, any indication that "Superior Spider-Man" is on the way out.) There's every possibility that Slott and Ramos could be detailing the previous adventures of Peter Parker -- the "lost episodes" of the previous "Amazing Spider-Man" volume, so to speak. Many options exist, and it's likely more about the series will be revealed in the coming days.

This isn't the first time Marvel has had a leak relating to "Amazing Spider-Man." The reveal of Doctor Octopus taking over Peter Parker's brain was leaked days before its debut, while the finale of "Amazing Spider-Man" #700 was spoiled over a week before publication. That said, the current leaked image only indicates that a new volume of "Amazing Spider-Man" is on the way -- nothing more.

CBR has reached out to Marvel representatives for comment, but did not hear back by time of press.
