First clip from The Amazing Spider-Man features no web-swinging, lots of talking

Feb. 20, 2012by: George Merchan

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN has unveiled its very first clip - thanks to viral site Mark of the Spider-Man - and if you're hoping for it to be a dizzying display of action or an interesting look at the film's characters... you're in for disappointment.

Instead, we're greeted with a clip that, at best, feels truncated, and at worst plays like a deleted scene from the home video release. Why Sony would release such a dull clip as their very first is beyond me, especially since they have to know that web-slinger fans are not 100% sold yet on the idea of a Spidey reboot. I doubt this will turn them.

Nevertheless, the clip is attached below for your scrutiny. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN opens July 3rd.

Synopsis: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

This scene was much better when Bruce Campbell was in it.

HAHA I love how much shit this movie is getting from you people. Why so much hate over a 45 second clip. He could have just gotten done kicking all kinds of ass... you don't know. So why complain about this, oh well I'm not sure what's going on at this point in the movie so I'll reserve judgement, it was pretty pointless to show that clip though.

WTF?.. What the hell was that? Were they doing improv in this scene? That was just terrible. I have yet to see anything that will change my mind about this flick.

You said it best...

It does feel exactly like a deleted scene. It's so weird that they would choose to show this as their first clip :-

This is pretty much the exact same scene from Spider-Man 2, except this one wasn't nearly as entertaining.

Are you referring to the scene where Bruce Campbell as an usher, won't let Parker into the theater?
