UNMASKED! Andrew Garfield as the new Spider-Man!

Well, it wouldn't be a day reporting on movies on the web without using the word "reboot," but here's a bit of rebootery that sure warrants a mention: the big reveal of The Social Network's Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man!


The pic above was sent to us by the studio reps handling the new ... yeah, we'll use the word ... reboot of the Spider-Man franchise being directed by (500) Days of Summer filmmaker Marc Webb, who will be taking over stewardship of Spidey's cinematic adventures from Sam Raimi.

So, what do you think? Can this nice, fresh-faced British actor assume the role of All-American science geek/superhero Peter Parker from Tobey Maguire?
