My Spidey senses are tingling, the official first teaser trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN! With Comic Con just around the corner, all the big hitters in the comic book movie department are scouring to get the first (or latest) footage online or ready at least to be unveiled at the San Diego convention and Marc webb’s Spiderman is one of the films on show. The biggest surprise for everyone at The People’s Movies, as well as many other if my fellow bloggers, was Sony’s announcement to reboot so soon after Sam Raimi’s last outing (which was only 4 years previously). The first thing people will recognise is some similarities to Tobey Maguire’s first movie as the web-slinger, however the new version does look less camp with a darker edge.
Most of all this trailer is merely an introduction giving us the first look at: our geeky Peter Parker, played by Andrew Garfield, who really proved himself a worthy actor in The Social Network and Never Let Me Go; Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy (not Mary Jane Parker), Rhys Ifans as Curt Connors, Sally Fields, Martin Sheen,Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan . What I’m intrigued about is we get to see Peter’s parents, which we haven’t seen in any of the previous movies; but as this movie is based on Spiderman’s early origins we will see some things we never got in Sam Raimi’s version.
On a positive note the first trailer does look exciting but it’s early days to judge it negative or positive outright. The movie isn’t due out until July 3rd 2012!Vodpod videos no longer available.
