Following last night’s sneak peek footage of The Amazing Spider-Man, a new trailer has now gone online playing up Spidey’s humour and wise-cracking antics – while teasing us with glimpses of the Lizard. Marc Webb says he’s interested in going for something different than that of Sam Raimi’s style, only the trailer says the opposite. I am still not quite sure why the film boasts the tagline line, “The Untold Story”, since we’ve already seen four Spidey movies; three directed by Raimi, and one God-awful mess from the 80’s. The new trailer fleshes out the character of Peter Parker a little, touching on his daddy issues, and shows the great chemistry between Andrew Garfied and Emma Stone. See for yourself.
The film, which is now in production and is being shot entirely in 3D, will be released on July 3, 2012. The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach are producing the Marvel Entertainment production for Columbia Pictures.
