Although my favorite super hero of all time will always be The Hulk, Spider-Man has always been where my heart is. He’s not rich playboy or a scientist or a God. The lure of Peter Parker is that he’s just an ordinary kid who had something extraordinary happen to him. Don’t we all wish that was our origin story sometimes?
Anywho, billed as “The Untold Story”, The Amazing Spider-Man (Out July 3rd) looks to have some new twists and turns for our beloved wall-crawler judging by the new full-length trailer that just debuted.
Here you get some new shots of Denis Leary as Captain Stacy along with a glimpse or two of Rhys Ifans’ Curt Connors and as his villainous alter-ego, The Lizard. The best parts of the new trailer has to be the action and especially Andrew Garfield wisecracking as Spidey. Something I felt was severely lacking from the Raimi movies. Director Marc Webb and Sony has already come under scrutiny for such a quick turnaround after 2007’s Spider-Man 3 but I think that The Amazing Spider-Man is going to be the summer super-hero movie with the most substance.
What do you think? The Amazing Spider-Man swings into theaters on July 3rd.
