We’ve now got the first clip from the film to share with you, courtesy of the film’s viral site, Mark of the Spider-Man, via Collider, which chooses to go for a bit of drama/light-hearted comedy having already shown us plenty of ridiculously awesome action and effects in the trailers we’ve seen so far.
With a cast led by Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, supported by the likes of Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Denis Leary, C. Thomas Howell, and of course the usual Stan Lee cameo, things are looking pretty great for Webb’s ventures into the superhero genre.
“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.”
As Collider note, this new clip also pays homage to a scene from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 which fans of the earlier films will recognise (you can watch it below) as when Peter is denied entry from seeing Mary Jane performing in her play.
With four and a half months to go until the film’s release, we can expect to see plenty more where this came from, so if you’re hungry for more action scenes, you probably won’t have to wait long.
The Amazing Spider-Man will be with us in 3D on 4th July, and if you’ve missed our coverage of the film so far, you can catch up on it all right here. It looks like it’s going to be awesome.
