More new SPIDER-MAN set photos…are we seeing too much?

There have been a surprising amount of photos hitting the net from the set of Marc Webb's upcoming SPIDER-MAN reboot starring Andrew Garfield as the titular comic book hero. Normally, for a film of this magnitude, this kind of access is unprecedented and seeing so many candid shots of a brand new take on the character and costume could lead to some unwanted backlash. These photos are not official, they don't reveal a great deal, and they aren't particularly flattering.

So why are so many photographers and spies getting access? More photos and speculation after the break.

Garfield is recognizable in the costume, but a stunt double is obviously present on set as well. But do we really need to see all of these images? Wouldn't it be better if just the official SPIDER-MAN image of Garfield was all we had seen up to this point? Why isn't this a closed set with tons of security?

Webb is obviously shooting a lot of action on location which hurts secrecy, but is the production team really okay with this many images getting out so early? At this point, the amount of photos of the new costume is hurting the new reboot more than helping it solely due to overexposure. The film is already up against a greater level of scrutiny because it's a reboot, and it certainly doesn't need any more attention right now. Lay low guys, do your thing, and surprise the entire world with an amazing SPIDER-MAN adventure. Until then, keep it under wraps for God's sake!
