For as long as we've known that Sony would be hitting the restart button on the Spider-Man franchise, the question has been what to call it. For the last year we hear on Cinema Blend have been calling it "Marc Webb's Spider-Man", "The Untitled Spider-Man Reboot" and more. What we've always known is that the film wouldn't be called Spider-Man because it would be too easy to confuse it with Sam Raimi's film. Today we finally get an answer to the question.

Sony has announced via press release that the Webb directed webslinger movie will officially be titled The Amazing Spider-Man. To make things even better, the announcement was paired with the launch of the movie's new website, theamazingspiderman-movie.com/, which has the first look at Andrew Garfield in the full Spider-Man getup, this time with his mask on and webshooters pointed to the sky.
