Judging from all we’ve seen so far, Marc Webb looks to be proving himself the perfect man to have helmed the project.
Along with being awesome in its own right, the new spot also announces that a four-minute super preview will be debuting on America’s Got Talent on 14th May, and will no doubt hit the Internet very soon (/immediately) after, so be sure to check back in for that.
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone star in the leads as Spidey himself and Gwen Stacy, with a great supporting cast that includes Rhys Ifans as The Lizard, along with Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Denis Leary, C. Thomas Howell, Irrfan Khan, and of course Stan Lee himself.
“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 will be released in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on 3rd July (a day earlier than expected) in the UK and US, so clear everything on your schedule for the first weekend of July. It’s going to be awesome; I literally cannot wait. Here’s the first TV spot to prove it.
