Amazing Spider-Man clip shows Peter’s personality

Posted by CB Droege

Peter’s personality is a big part of what makes Spider-Man a great character. More than most super heroes, the man shows through the mask.

For me, the awkward, and sometimes sly, wit of Parker is nearly as iconic as the blue and red suit. Perhaps in response to fan’s worries about the upcoming depiction of Peter Parker, Sony has released a clip from The Amazing Spider-Man on the film’s new promotional website:

The clip seems to come right before the brief line in the full-trailer in which Peter climbs in Gwen’s window, explaining that the 20-floors of fire-escape were easier to deal with than the doorman of her building. We get enough of one scene to see how Garfield deals with the persona of Parker.

This leaves the final concern still of how the effects will be handled for The Lizard, this iteration’s main villain. I really hope the studio went with digital facial mo-cap for the lizard’s few scenes of dialogue. If it’s just Rhys Ifans in a rubber mask, I’ll really be disappointed. So hopefully, we’ll soon get a clip which features some close-up dialogue from the character.

Here's the trailer:

The most recent Amazing Spider-Man synopsis is as follows:

One of the world's most popular characters is back on the big screen as a new chapter in the Spider-Man legacy is revealed in "The Amazing Spider-Man." Focusing on an untold story that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story, the new film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, with Martin Sheen and Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach are producing the film in association with Marvel Entertainment for Columbia Pictures, which will open in theaters everywhere in 3D on July 3, 2012.

“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.

The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters on July 3, 2012.
