The First Official Trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man


You know, the new one, because Toby Maguire has back problems now and Sony Pictures would really like to keep the rights to Spider-Man out of Disney’s hands for the next half-a-decade or so.

I kid, I kid! One of the biggest questions surrounding The Amazing Spider-Man is why we needed a Spider-Man reboot in the first place, and this trailer does present its differences from the last series well enough. The question now is whether those differences will be enough.

At this point all we can know for certain is that it will be better than Spider-Man 3.

    Okay, I’m kinda in love with this Peter Parker and Mary Jane now.

     It’s not MJ Anna, it’s Gwen. As well it should be since she was first in Peter’s life.

    I was really against this movie from the start..but the trailer has really changed my mind.  Emma Stone makes a great Gwen and Andrew Garfield isn’t so bad as Spidey. LOVE Connor’s Lizardy look too

    Isn’t this the second official trailer? Regardless, I’m liking these scenes a whole lot more, the first looked a bit too much like a video game (à la Mirror’s Edge), I can’t help but wonder if the CGI simply wasn’t as refined back in that stage.

    I… don’t like it.

    Pete still needs more snark

    Good job Marketing Team. Way more impressed with this trailer. I think they did a great job and I think people will be very intrigued to see this iteration. I know I am now.

    Love me some Andrew Garfield, even more so now that he’s helping us forget the terrible terrible nightmare that was Spiderman3

    Dammit. I didn’t want to feel the need to see this in the theatre… but Now I do.

    And to my mind, far more interesting. Gwen Stacy had tude.

    Loving the trailer, looks like they might do Spiderman justice this time around.

    Although to me Andrew Garfield will always be the loser kid from Sugar Rush….

    I wonder who they will eventually cast as MJ. 

    Why they didn’t go with Emma Stone as MJ in the first place is a mystery to me.

  • Carlos Eduardo Castro

    Ok, I’ve bought it. It will probably be a fun movie to watch, but I still think he has his mask off a lot…

  • Adam Whitley

    I think they might finally make a decent spider-man movie now all that needs to happen is never have dialogue like “if you punch me I bleed”

  • Carmen Sandiego

    I’m waiting for my fellow nerds to see it and then I’ll check it out. I have my reservations.

    We all know Gwen dies in the end (if you reading this isn’t aware, oops, sorry :P) and it’s seriously making me think if they’re gonna stick with Gwen Stacy throughtout the series, or eventually kill her off and put in MJ.

    Ah men, this is reminding me of Smallville so bad. After making me a Lana/Clark fan for so long, they THEN put in Lois. Sigh.
