Web-slinger Peter Parker has a name for his next big-screen adventure: "The Amazing Spider-Man."

Distributor Sony Pictures announced the title Monday for the film due in theaters July 3, 2012. Now in production and being shot in 3-D, the film stars Andrew Garfield as Peter, the ordinary youth who gains superpowers from a bite by a mutant spider.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" co-stars Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen and Sally Field.

Directed by Marc Webb ("(500) Days of Summer"), the film is a re-launch of the franchise after the 2002 blockbuster "Spider-Man" and its two sequels, which starred Tobey Maguire as the Marvel Comics superhero.
