New Amazing Spider-Man trailer swings into action!

02.07.2012by:

So the latest trailer for director Marc Webb's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is now online, and it looks pretty damn good!

I feel that the trailer (coupled with some spoilery info we've seen over the past year) gives away a lot of the film, but that seems to be par for the course these days, no? With that, though, comes tons of new footage, some nice quick glimpses of the Lizard, and just an overall sense of the tone Webb is going for. I like that Spidey hasn't lost his trademark humor amidst a world that's certainly darker and more real than Sam Raimi's version.

But enough talk! Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think!

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.

I don't understand all the Raimi hate?

We ALL know Spider-Man 3 sucked. Hell, even Raimi knew that. But the first 2 films are solid Spider-Man flicks. The 1st being almost airtight for fan's of the comic... I don't get it? Weren't you the same fans gushing over the original? Or has your Raimi hate been throughout? Can 1 crap movie really outshine everything else?

The only movie that was really good was SM 2. The first one aged horribly and Green Goblin's suit always looked like crap. And overall, I thought he took the damsel in distress cliché to a new low, having his female lead being rescued 3 times per movie!

2 & 3 had the worst CG and 'Raimi comedy' ever. At least the first film was somewhat creative.

If anything Kirstin Snaggletooth ruined it for me.

I guess Spiderman only swings around and stops crime at night. Where are the colorfull montages of Spidey swinging around and being a hero to the people? This movie, as a movie, looks good. This movie as a representation of Spiderman is lacking. They made Spiderman seem more like Batman. I don’t know about this one.

Garfield looks great, and the wise-cracking in the cab was fantastic.

But the notion that "darker" = "more real" is a very frustrating sentiment that all filmmakers this century seem to agree with. "Darker" does not mean "more real," especially in a superhero movie. "Darker" means "more dark."

The Best Part of the entire trailer was when Spidey was talking to the car thief. It's nice to finally have a Spider-man with at least some comedic timing.

LOL at all the haters.

Complaining this is too "dark" to be Spiderman. How is this dark? because there are a lot of night time scenes? It isn't any more violent or action packed than the Raimi films. I think a lot of haters are confusing what dark really means here. This new Spiderman isn't dark, it just isn't CHEESY. That's the difference. Bring on the Garfield!

Garfield has the perfect physique for Spiderman, and his personality is so much more appropriate. And the tone looks great, the situations, emotions and dangers feels real.

This isn't a dig at the Raimi Trilogy, because I loved the first two movies, but I'm starting to wonder if this reboot might have been better received a few more years down the line, much like what we saw with Batman. Not enough time has passed for people to remove themselves from the original trilogy, which is what most consider to be the definitive Spider-Man. I know I do. But the more I see and hear about this reboot, the more I start to think it might actually be a new and interesting take

Looks terrific...

I will say this about the SPIDER-MAN trailer though. Everything that is shown has already been done in the previous trilogy in my opinion minus Lizard and the pointless "parents abandoned me" story. Yes the movie looks terrific but the big solo web-slinging scenes and the action bits have been done and to be honest I think the ones in the original trilogy look better than the ones shown in this trailer.
Still very excited to see it though.

Raimi made a CLASSIC trilogy that made a billion dollars for a reason and no one can touch that. It's time to move on even though I was one of those bitching the most for a while.
This looks damn cool and has pretty much won me over.

why are we doing another origin story? aren't we all pretty clear on what happened here? the ONLY reason to see this is the lizard and hotpants emma.

As much as I loved Spider Man 2, I hated the end of the subway fight, it's like the producers don't feel the audience connects without showing his face. Torn, I don't mind, it creates suspense for his identity leaking, but yeah agreed!

finally

We get to see why this is an "untold story". Seems they are sort of using the Venom story from Ultimate but with Lizard in his place. HOnestly this might actually be one of the few super hero movies that successfully takes bits from all over an puts them together in something coherent as they don't seem to be following any one story or incarnation of Parker/Spider Man. Cool beans.

Looks pretty good, but I'd love to know how his feet are sticking to the ceiling of the subway train when he's wearing his regular clothes, including sneakers. Unless his spider abilities are based around powerful magnets or something I'm not sure how that works (and yes I'm aware it's fiction, but still...)

All those saying Spider-Man is not dark and not affected by his past have obviously never picked up a comic. Uncle Ben, Aunt May, Gwen, Osbournes, Mary Jane and so many other characters with storylines involving Peter's past which really SCREW HIM UP! That's the whole point: his past DRIVES him to keep putting on the mask.

You're so right.. He deals with all the stress and tragedy through jokes, because he holds alot inside. That's what I got out of the comics. People around him are always in danger. He lost his parents and first real girlfriend at a young age and even his uncle.. That's pretty dark to me.

The Lizard was always one of my favorites when I watched the Spiderman Cartoon as a kid but I have to be honest. As good as this trailer looked, I still have a problem with The Lizard looking like a Goomba fucked a Sleestak.

Am I alone here? The Lizard had a crocodile snout. This thing looks like a Sleestak fucked a Goomba! How did Marc Webb look at the concept art and go, oh yeah... "That's our Lizard!"

The trailer looks pretty solid but I'm still not sold on the lizard's face, it's like it doesn't match with the rest of his body. I would prefered something more like a crocodile mouth for him, more accurate to the comics. But it's just my opinion. Anyway this movie will have to make shitloads of money in the first two weeks of release, because when the Dark Knight rises arrives, it will be the end of our friendly neighborhood spiderman at the box office..and everything else that stands in the

On the fence

As much as I want to like a new Spiderman movie, I'm struggling. I'm missing the colours from the previous films, the whole dark thing doesn't do it for me. The trailer didn't do too much for me but I'm putting that down to the Avengers trailer being so damn good.

Spiderman 2 is among my favourite films too which probably doesn't help with looking forward to a make over.

I'm not going to speak for anyone but I just have the feeling that if this was the very first SpiderMan movie ever, everyone would be excited for it and not nitpicking it. I really like the first two but I'm not going to let that get in the way of enjoying someone elses vision of it that happens to look really bad ass, even if it is only a few years after the third one.

The problem is that it's not the first one. It's the fourth . The first one was released only 11 years ago and it wasn't a bad movie. Yes, the Goblin looks like a power ranger, but everything else was pretty damn good. This one looks cheap , and the Lizard doesn't look anymore like the lizard from the comics then the Green Goblin did. The only thing I liked was finally hearing Spidey talk a little trash. Everything else looks like a cheap rehash. The thing that nobody seems to mention is that

If Uncle Ben is alive while Peter Parker is spider-man then this is not the true origin. Who wanted to see the origin retold anyway? They could have easily just done this as a separate spidey story that took place in high school and nobody would have cared either way.

I don't want any Spidey origin or backstory on Peter's folks, but MAN that trailer got me interested for the first time. Before I was doubting I'd even bother w/ it at home and now I'm there opening weekend.

For once a title that does not lie

Looks great, and somehow they seemed to have grounded the proceedings in a world where a giant lizard is a reality

Blown away, no complaints, can't wait.

Ready for another trilogy

I can't stress enough how happy I am that he is in high school. May seem minor, but seeing an adult Spider-Man didn't feel right to me.
I am not an advocate of this "darker is better" movement, but I am happy that some of the corny stuff from the Raimi movies seems to not have carried over... (see: well... throughout all the movies).

in this first spiderman, he started off in high school too? This movie is no different then the first one we saw in 2002. Member when he gets his new powers and fights flash? almost same scene in the new trailer...

I like that despite its a darker version, like George said, Spidey is still joking like in the comics. That I missed from the previous movies.

Looks AWESOME!

I love the original Spider-Man trilogy, but I really do believe that The Amazing Spider-Man is gonna be AMAZING. Andrew Garfield seems like he's gonna be a much more bad-ass and realistic Spider-Man.

I like all the Spiderman movies even the 3rd one. This one does look awesome but The Lizard is my favorite Spiderman villian and I don't like his look without the croc snout. But I will be there to see it in theaters.

I'm digging this even if it is unnecessary. I still don't know how I feel about the suit!

i think the suit is fine except the eyes. We need Big bright white lenses not these more subdued silver ones. maybe its a conflict with filming for the change, i dunno but i've never liked the eye lenses in the first 3 movies either.

Regardless if it turns out bad or not, solely because it is a marvel movie, especially another on Spider-Man, i'll see it. Which is the other thing, another spider-man was not needed, but this trailer did excite me. I just wish the Lizard had his lab coat, that would have been awesome

This is quite the trailer. I'm not 100% sold on it but I'll definately catch this now. There are things that still bug me but things/parts that look cool and fun. This is not in my top five movies of the summer but I'll be watching hoping it turns out good.

Great trailer and the movie looks better than expected.

Will have a tough time trying to match the greatness of the first two Spider Man films which will always be my definitive version of Spider and his origins.

So the "untold story" is about how a high school student with no money that manufactures Spidey-Nikes in his own home for a costume?

The trailer made this film look a lot better than I thought it would be, but I am still not entirely sold. I don't think it's quite as dark as people make it out to be. Yes there's a tragic past and a lot of night shots, but it's still Spiderman, not TDK. This still feels pointless to me and all this untold story business is kind of lame. We'll see in July, I guess.

Not for me...

Spider-Man is NOT this dark. Not even in the ultimate universe. Spider-Man isn't a gritty hero struggling with his past while finding his place as the role of protector among the harrowing streets of Gotha- oh I forgot who I was talking about for a minute. THIS IS SPIDER-MAN PEOPLE. The teenage jack-ass, wisecracking on a fool before he webs them up. Bane of super villains galore because not only is he better, but he won't shut up about it. His bright, hes red and blue, and he's the most

The comic relief, the fan favorite because he's what most kids start out reading, because he's fun and non-lethal... NOT dark and gritty. Like the director, hate the approach. Not for me.

One scene of Parker being a smart ass teen, doesn't make the entire movie true to the real Spiderman comic.

True, but one trailer doesn't make an entire movie either. That one scene is already more in tone with the character than anything in the Raimi trilogy and we've only seen one teaser and one trailer.

I agree with you a 100%: it is too soon. But that's not Marc Webb's fault and since I was never in love with Raimi's movies, I will give this one a shot.

But Sony will lose money because of their impatience.

@topchambers - disagree, that's what Batman was all about. Spider Man did deal with some issues and Gwens death was a dark hour in the legacy, but that is not what he's "all about"... maybe I read different Spider-Man comics.

Everything just looks...odd. I don't know how else to put it. I mean his costume looks cool, but the untold story element and the special effects just look really bad. I still have hope in the talent behind the movie though.

Sorry, i can't accept this reboot.

I see no untold story here, i see the same spiderman story as i did in the first movie, & why? Cause its spiderman... There is no different story to tell. Sony ruined this franchise. Now because they can't buy any more super hero movies from marvel, their clinging on and starting over. Should have had another movie with Tobey, killed him and setup the Miles Morales as his successor (doing something literally never done before, by killing the super hero) and telling a new story of spiderman we

I am seeing nothing that justifies a reboot. In fact it was rather boring, and not digging the glossy suit. Not sure if I am just not young enough to dig the whole teen wannabe Edward from twilight look, but I will not be running to the theater to see this.

Nope...Another Money Grab!

IMO, the first two Spider-Man flicks were great, the third, not so great. Sam Raimi had a pretty decent vision on how SM should look and appeal to the audience, while keeping the image true to the comic book character. This re-boot is a money grab by Hollywood, to keep their engines running by cheapening a trilogy and turning it into a disaster. The costume is cheap looking and does not reflect the current Spider Man in the 616 universe at all, and the "darker" story line is an unnecessary

I really like everything, except Garfield himself. I like the new suit, the cinematography, the story, and the acting seems acceptable so far. But I just don't like Andrew Garfield. He doesn't look, sound, or behave like the Peter Parker in my head. But like I said, I really do like everything else. So I've got a bad feeling I'm actually going to watch this movie.

I Knew It

I could not stop laughing throughout the whole trailer. The first trailer was better, I think because they showed less. Now since they've showed more, this shit looks horrible. His costume just looks off. Between the shade of colors and the design, he looks really cheesy. So I can't take anything he does or says serious. The part where he dodges the gunfire is outright laughable. And I don't even want to get started on the Lizard. The CGI on him looks like some shit you would find in the
