Sony have finally launched their website for next year's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, and with it comes the first official synopsis for the flick...

Ok, so this isn't anything revelatory, but it's an interesting read considering that they've been building a whole campaign around the tagline that debuted on last week's teaser - do Sony actually have something special up their sleeves, an element to the mythology unique to the movie series? Read on...

Like most teenagers his age, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. In his journey to put the pieces of his past together he uncovers a secret his father held…a secret that will ultimately shape his destiny as Spider-Man. This is the first in a series of movies that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story. On July 3rd, 2012, the untold story begins.

Whether you're a die-hard Spidey fan and already know what this 'secret' alludes to, or it turns out to be a creation of screenwriters Alvin Sargent & Steve Kloves, it is comforting to know that we won't have to sit through the exact same origin story again after all.

While we ponder, let's have a look at some of the newly released images also debuted, starting with some rather awesome new promos...


THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN opens July 3rd 2012.
