Could New Spider-Man Set Photos Lead To A Viral?

by Dan Koelsch

The Internet was aflutter over new set photos from the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, and while most people are trying to get a glimpse of Spidey in action, its a more mundane image that caught my eye. Could Sony be looking to start a viral campaign for the Web-Slinger?

You can see all the Los Angeles set images at The Daily Blam, but below is the one I’m talking about. In it, we see the van for The Daily Bugle, the famed New York newspaper that Peter Parker will (eventually) work for.





What’s interesting about the van is the contact information. There’s both a website, TheDailyBugle.com, and two phone numbers, 212-153-READ and 212-153-3080. Unfortunately, both are dead ends, as the link just takes you to the Mid-Ohio Comic-Con website for some reason, and the two numbers are not in service. With the film still 18 months away, however, these could end up being used for a campaign later on.


The untitled Spider-Man reboot is directed by Marc Webb and stars Andrew Garfield as the non-caped crusader and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. Columbia Pictures releases the film in theaters on July 3, 2012.
