New Spider-Man 'has mechanical web-shooters'

By
Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man
The Andrew Garfield-led Spider-Man movie will return to the Marvel source material to feature Peter Parker building his own web-shooters.

The Sam Raimi-directed Spider-Man trilogy saw high-schooler Parker able to produce web fluid using his own body after getting bitten by a radioactive spider. In Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's original comic story, the character constructs his own mechanical wrist devices to fire web.

Sony Pictures' recently-released still of Andrew Garfield from the movie appeared to show metal shooters attached to the superhero's costume, sparking debate among comic book fans.

Garfield's Spider-Man co-star Emma Stone confirmed to MTV at last night's Golden Globes that Peter Parker will use "a device" to sling web.

The untitled Spider-Man movie will open in cinemas in July 2012.
