Sony’s finally released the first (real) trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, and fans will definitely enjoy the fact that it features a lot more Spidey.
This summer’s going to be a big one for comic book movies. We’ve got The Avengers in May, with both The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man hitting theaters in July. With these release dates fast approaching, we’re starting to get some new trailers to raise our interest. The Dark Knight Rises got one in December, The Avengers‘ Super Bowl spot has been setting the internet ablaze with chatter this week, and now we have an official video for The Amazing Spider-Man.
The trailer’s got a lot going on. It shows Peter’s burgeoning relationship with Gwen Stacy, his early heroics against petty criminals, the police going after him for being a costumed vigilante, and how his work with Dr. Curt Conners winds up creating The Lizard. There’s still a little footage of Peter being a mopey outcast, but it looks like this has been played down in lieu showing off a character that comic fans can get behind. Additionally, it looks like Spidey’s web-shooter are being made mechanical again, though the earlier footage of him spinning webs from the back of his neck has yet to be explained.
Also of note: The first-person sequence that appeared in the teaser trailer is nowhere to be seen. Honestly, this is a much stronger showing for the movie than the teaser was, since it showcases Spidey in action, making wisecracks, and being super nerdy as Peter Parker (just look at all those equations he writes on the chalk board! He’s making science!).
The Amazing Spider-Man is due out on July 3rd, 2012.
