There was some criticism of the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man. It looked too much like a video game. There was too much of Peter moping. Not enough of a look at Spidey. Barely a hint about the Lizard.
Now, Sony has given us a new trailer, and it is fantastic.
We get to see Spidey making quips. Spider-Man versus the cops. The creation of the mechanical webshooters. And a direct connection between Spider-Man and Curt Connors becoming the Lizard.
I was in the skeptics camp for this film. But now? July can’t come fast enough.
The Amazing Spider-Man is directed by Mark Webb and swings in to theatres July 3, 2012. Andrew Garfield stars as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone is Gwen Stacy, and Rhys Ifans is Curt Connors/the Lizard. Also starring in the film are Martin Sheen and Sally Field as Uncle Ben and Aunt May, and Dennis Leary as Captain Stacy.
