With Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe they've planned to reboot the franchise. So, let's look back at the last reboot of the Spider-Man movies thanks to storyboards by Amy Lynn Umezu.
Amy Lynn Umezu is a professional concept and storyboard artist who's worked on big budget films like Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), Insurgent (2015) and the upcoming Jurassic World (2015).

She mainly worked on the opening sequence (Peter Parker playing hide-and-seek through his dad dropping him off at Aunt May’s house), the subway sequence (immediately after Peter is bit, he has an encounter on the subway) and the birth of Spider-man montage (Peter falling through the roof to the wrestling ring, designing his costume, making the web shooters, etc).
Here's the scene as it was filmed
When I asked her what it was like working on the film she said, "This was my first big blockbuster superhero film, so the challenges I had were more about learning the process that goes into making these action films."

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."
