How good does this trailer look!?! While The Blot was super hesitant about another Spider-Man origin story, I’m really coming around to The Amazing Spider-Man. Everything I’ve seen so far has been topnotch, and while I don’t love the costume at least this version is staying very true to the Marvel comic books. I liked Raimi’s first Spider-Man film and the 2nd is a comic book masterpiece, but there was always something off about those films (including Tobey Maguire’s performance). To me the films missed Peter Parker’s humor and Maguire’s performances always felt forced. While Andrew Garfield seems to be going for a much more serious interpretation of the character (ala the Ultimate Universe version perhaps), his performances in the few trailers I’ve seen so far have been great! Plus we get our first look at Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) as The Lizard!!!
The Amazing Spider-Man is scheduled to swing into theaters on July 3, 2012.
