Viral marketing is all the rage these days and Marc Webb’s ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ is joining the party.

Comic Book Movie has unearthed some design sketches from Peter Parker, Spider-Man’s alter ego, for his trademark web shooters. Some crafty Twitter users uncovered the sketches on www.pakerspov.com, the viral website for the movie, through the words “EVOLVE” “THROUGH” and “ENGINEERING”. They lead to a hidden page on the amateur photographer’s blog titled “Humble Beginnings’. Once there, you can see the detailed photos, which depict how Spider-Man’s main weapons of choice work. Check out all three below.

News broke yesterday that ‘Star Trek’ scribes Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman would be taking over for James Vanderbuilt to write the sequel to the Spider-Man reboot slated to hit theaters on May 2nd, 2014. Two heavyweights of Hollywood being attached to the project means that the studio is really getting behind Marc Webb’s version of everyone’s favorite neighborhood web slinger even before it’s released in July.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ is helmed by ‘500 Days of Summer’ director Marc Webb and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, and Dennis Leary. It swings into theaters in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on July 3rd, 2012 in the US.

UPDATE

ComingSoon.net has even more photos and a video snippet of the web shooter. Check them out below:

    I can’t wait until July! I’m even more excited for this movie than I am for the Avengers… and that’s saying something. Plus I love the fact that they’re keeping Spidey’s web shooters this go ’round.

    I can’t wait for the scene where he runs out of web fluid at a very inopportune time. :)
