Look — it’s Andrew Garfield as “Spider-Man”

This seems to be the Week of Seeing Characters Debut — we got our first glimpse of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander earlier this week, and now, right here in my inbox, is the first photo of Andrew Garfield in his Spidey suit, for the as-yet-untitled new “Spider-Man” movie debuting next year. I’m of two minds on this: Garfield is a wonderful young actor, who’s demonstrated his range this year with roles in “The Social Network,” “Never Let Me Go” (he’s absolutely heartbreaking in this movie; unfortunately, few saw it),” and the first installment of the “Red Riding” trilogy, and it’ll be fun to see what he can do with an iconic hero. On the other hand, Tobey Maguire I thought owned this role nicely, and if the idea was to go with somebody much younger for a teenage Peter Parker, Garfield seems a bit mature (he’s 27; Maguire is a young-looking 35). Anyway, he looks appropriately skinny in the Spidey suit (which seems to have some new stripes on it, if I’m not mistaken), and Emma Stone should make a fab Gwen Stacy. Here’s the photo:
