Comic-Con attendees are counting down the days until they get their first look at footage from The Amazing Spider-Man, but Hall H attendees won’t be too far ahead of the curve. New images from the film will be in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly and lo-res screencaps of scans from the magazine have gone online (it’s like low-resolution squared). Director Mark Webb also tells EW that “Ultimately what this movie is about is a kid who grows up looking for his father and finds himself. And that’s a Spider-Man story we haven’t seen before,” which is true. We’ve just seen that story in plenty of other movies before.
SHH reports that the first trailer for the film will be attached to some prints of Captain America: The First Avenger and that the trailer will run 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Hit the jump to check out the lo-res images and the EW cover. Click here for Steve’s recent interview with screenwriter Steve Kloves. The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Rhys Ifans. The Amazing Spider-Man opens in 3D on July 3, 2012. [Update 2: We’ve updated the story with more images that are all high-quality.]

Also, hilariously, EW “exclusively confirms” that Rhys Ifans is playing the Lizard. If that’s the case, I would like to exclusively confirm that Andrew Garfield is playing Spider-Man because “exclusively confirm” apparently now means “report old news that everyone already knew.”
