Now we have our answer.

Columbia Pictures has released the first photo of Andrew Garfield in the Spider-Man costume. There are slight differences between the suit that Garfield's Peter Parker is wearing and the Spider-Man costume that Tobey Maguire wore in the three earlier Spider-Man movies:
- the detailing around the wrist section is different from the Maguire costume.
- the chest on Garfield's costume has less red, and a slightly different spider symbol.
- the Garfield suit's webbing pattern is black and does not stand out as much as the webbing pattern on Maguire's suit.

Campbell Scott (Damages, Singles) has been cast in the role of Peter Parker's father in the film while Julianne Nicholson (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) is in talks to play Peter's mother. The casting news is especially interesting because the parents of Peter Parker have been only seen in flashbacks in the Spider-Man comics and never on the screen. In the comic book's continuity, Peter's parents died when he was an infant, leaving him an orphan to be raised by his Aunt May and Uncle Ben Parker.
Also in talks to be added to the cast are Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire) and Annie Parisse (Rubicon). Khan's character would be a villain named Van Atter who might turn out to be the Proto-Goblin from the Marvel comics. Parisse would play the wife of the villain.- The Hollywood Reporter.
