Amazing Spider-Man clip hides in the back-seat

Posted by CB Droege

Columbia Pictures has released a new clip and featurette from its upcoming super hero adventure, The Amazing Spider-Man.

We’ve seen portions of this scene over and over again in many of the trailers and teasers for this film, illustrating the type of snarky humor this Spider-Man will have toward criminals. Here we get two and a half minutes of classic Spider-Man, more like the Spider-Man from the comics than any film version of Spidey I’ve seen before.

In addition there is this featurette. The video offers a number of great interview clips with cast and crew - mixed with a few new bits of footage from the film.

This Spider-Man is a very different one from the previous franchise. He seems less conflicted about his role, not particularly concerned with secrecy and sneakiness, and overall, definitely more lighthearted. He’s more like the Spider-Man we know from the comics, and it will be interesting to see where the franchise takes this particular iteration of the super hero.

Here’s the theatrical trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man:

and the official synopsis:

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally 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 (Emma 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 (Rhys 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 July 3rd, 2012.
