|Spider-Man concept art by James Carson|

Marc Webb in The Amazing Spider-Man restored the comic book's mechanical web-shooters and many fans were relieved. The other controversial change was using a static "Green Goblin" mask instead of a face.

James Carson is a professional concept and storyboard artist who's worked on Hollywood blockbuster movies like X-Men: First Class (2011), Tim Burton's Superman and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011).
