|The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) concept art by Tom Zhao|
I'm not that scared of spiders. I've swatted quite a few in my time. But if I saw the freaky-deaky spiders designed by Tom Zhao for The Amazing Spider-Man I might have waited a minute. Artist Tom Zhao shared some of his designs on his site and I've got them below. Plus, you can see designs for Dr. Connors "Tree of Life" and the "Calculation Matrix."
Tom Zhao is a professional concept artist who's worked on Hollywood films like Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011), and video games like Halo 4, Warhammer: Dark MIllenium Online and Batman: Arkham Origins.
Here's the best picture of the spider from the film I could find:

Official The Amazing Spider-Man Synopsis
"One of the world's most popular characters is back on the big screen as a new chapter in the Spider-Man legacy is revealed in "The Amazing Spider-Man." Focusing on an untold story that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story, the new film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, with Martin Sheen and Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach are producing the film in association with Marvel Entertainment for Columbia Pictures, which will open in theaters everywhere in 3D on July 3, 2012. "The Amazing Spider-Man" is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero."
