New Spider-man to have comic book web shooters

"It's a device."
[Source: Syfy] If you look closely at the recently released photo of Andrew Garfield in his Spidey gear, you can just make out a pair of metallic doodads on his hands. Emma Stone confirms what sharp-eyed fans have deduced: that Peter Parker builds his web-shooters in Marc Webb's reboot.
Even though, in the comics, science whiz Peter Parker invented the gizmos that would allow him to shoot webs from his wrists, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy turned them into a biological process—a side effect of the same spider bite that gave Peter his powers. (That, in and of itself, might be a remnant from James Cameron's time on Spider-Man: In his 1991 treatment for an abandoned Spidey movie, Peter discovers the bio-organic web spouts after a particularly gooey dream.)
But on the Golden Globes red carpet, the new Gwen Stacy seems to have confirmed that the new webslinger will swing mechanically with three simple words:
"It's a device."
