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.
