The Amazing Spider-Man Spins a Second Trailer Online

The Super Bowl might have been more “amazing” with a new spot by Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man”, but alas we’ll never know. Perhaps feeling a tad left out of the fun, Sony has decided to unleash the second trailer for their Spidey reboot onto the masses today after sneaking it earlier this week to unsuspecting crowds. But why watch it in a dark theater where you can only see it once, when you can now see it here over and over again? So, was it worth the wait? It doesn’t blow me away, but then again, after “Chronicle”, just watching the same ol Spider-Man story (its boasting of an “untold story” notwithstanding) that I already saw just 10 years ago feels a bit … tired? Spidey sure looks faster and more aggressive in this one, though, so that’s new.

“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.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, Sally Fields, Julianne Nicholson, Campbell Scott, Rhys Ifan, Irrfan Khan, Annie Parisse, and Chris Zylka.

Spidey spends his new/untold yarn July 3, 2012.

    NOW THAT WAS SPIDERMAN!!! I mean quips, the mouth moved when the mask was on, great webslinging, classic villain. Loving that Gwen knows right away, also feeling the updates and changes. And linking OsCorp to everything just makes sense. Bring it on!!

  • clarkspark

    Oh was that the guy from Anonymous as Lizard? This actually surprised me here. This has shaped up pretty good. Spidey had all the moves, looked like MvC3. Hehehe
    Def watching this at the theatre. :)

    Toby who?

    • Juggernaut

      Exactly! While I liked Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 I personnaly wasn’t happy with the casting or overall feel of them. I really liked certain aspects (the swinging effects and Doc Ock’s look specifically). Toby as Spidey never did it for me though. Neither did Dunst as MJ. I liked the picks for Norman and Harry but thought that there were other actors who better fit the roles and of course J.K. Simmons is J.J. Jameson personified! On the whole I relly like the lean and lanky look of Garfield’s Peter. Can’t wait to check this out!!!

      • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

        Agreed 100%. Toby was okay at best, and Dunst, I’m sorry no! but Bill Nunn as Robbie and J.K. Simmons as JJ were spot on. And I personally loved DaFoe as Norman/Goblin. But yeah Garfield is definitely killing it as Peter, hell the whole casst seem perfect. This is the Spidey film I’ve been waiting for!

      • Lexavi80

        Yup! Right on the spot!

        • Shazam!

          When I first heard they had cast Toby as PP I was pumped! Cider House Rules Toby is a spot on match for the geek that Kirby and Lee originally created – then I saw the movie and watched that character slowly disapear until nothing remained!

          Granted, we might be in store for that again, but I love a wirery Spidey, just like I love to jacked up Superman!

          I’ve been excited about this revamp since day 1 – and this trailer done nothing but feed that excitement!

  • Lexavi80

    Doesn’t blown you away? Wow!

    I knew this was going to be an awesome movie, but I honestly didn’t expect THAT level of awesomeness.

    Indeed the fact that Spiderman is faster and more determ, makes the movie 1000 times better than I was expecting too.

    Garfield is da’ man!!!!

      Have you seen “Chronicle” yet? When you’ve seen something that original, the prospect of watching a film that is rebooting a film from 10 years ago just feels … tired.

      • Lexavi80

        You made a very good point right there.

      • Shazam!

        I hear what you’re saying, but I’m not sure it’s a fair comparison. I don’t think The Amazing Spider-Man is claiming to be an original film… it’s claiming to be original in comparison with the previous Spider-Man films.

        Don’t get me wrong, I’d rather watch films like, Inception, Chronicle and Upside Down over half the movies being made these days, but sometimes, it’s fun to see movies about characters you already know and love too.

        • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Nix

          Nope, they’re not claiming it’s an “original” film. It’s just an “untold story”. Hmm…

          • Kd190223

            how was chronicle original? ive read that story a couple of times. I do agree that the same part of the spiderman story is being told over and over again. there are over 600 issues of spiderman and they keep going back to high school. that being said, im still watching it.

  • Robojesus777

    Eh. I’ll check out The Dark Knight Rises instead…

  • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

    Re watched it and I just noticed the webshooters light up when he uses them. I don’t know why but I like it. I mean technically it makes his wrists big targets cause it pinpoints the webshooters, but trying to hit Spidey is harder than it looks so there is that. Also love that he’s hiding behind his chair when he’s testing one for the first time…like it could blow up or something.

  • Juggernaut

    That was phenoenal! I was seriously underestimating this at first. I blame the spy pics from the set. The teaser trailer piqued my interest but I was really expecting to be underwhelmed. However, this looks really cool! I like the snark. The mask moving is reallt a nice touch. I like what Lizard looks like so far. I still want a shot of him in his trademark lab coat and ripped pants from the comics at some point though! Stacy chasing him down is a nice touch too. Looks like this is going to be another Marvel dominated year.

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

      I love the snark and moving mask too. It makes me feel he’s actually delivering the lines and they’re not dubbed over.

    • Lexavi80

      Right you are!

  • NCounter

    Yep! And don’t forget the fighting..twas much closer to the Spider-man comics than in Raimi’s films…Spidey fighting spec ops and unmasked at the same ime….damn cool…already preparing myself for the sequel..Doc Oc, Goblin (hope for the Ultimate versions). Hope it will be even cooler))))

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

      Definitely. Spidey doesn’t stand and fight really. That’s how he’s able to survive against stronger and better trained advesaries. That scene with him escaping the NYPD was awesome. I wouldn’t mind seeing something of a mix between the normal Green Goblin and the Ultimate version. Personally I think they should go the route the 90’s cartoon did and introduce the Hobgoblin first. I’d actually save Doc Ock for later. Bring on Electro, or Mysterio.

      • Ncounter

        Yep! Im starting to believe that MArvel is bringing the Ultimate version of their comics to the big screeens. And that’s GOOD!!!
        And by the way don’t forget Scorpion. Now I was always a fan of this guy.

        • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

          Gotta say he has been overlooked. I mean Scorpion is pure ego, and anger. I’d love for them to go the route where the angrier he gets the more control he looses over the suit and his abilities to the point that when the final showdown occurs he’s almost a lunatic. I’d have JJ hire him to not only try to captrue Spiderman but to make him look bad as a hero. Scorpion would be the dark new “hero” at first where in acuality he’s not heroic at all. Evrything he does is staged and when Peter figures it out it sets him off. When gargan gets beaten he loses it and lashes out at EVERYONE! Setting up Spidey to become the hero of the city finally.

        • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

          As for the Ultimate Universe being brought to sceen, I think we’ll contiue getting amalgams of the Ultimate and 616(Mainstream) universe. Ultimate was started to update the world and tell stories without the contraints of 60+ years of contuity. The films are pretty much the same thing, but actually using some stories from BOTH universes as inspiration.

  • Shazam!

    If I could pick any villain to come next, it would be the Ultimate version of Electro. All of Spidey’s villains (both in the Raimi films and Webb by the looks of things) always have a connection to Spidey – all except the Sandman that is – and that’s why he is my favourite! Not only is he more powerful than Spidey, but Spidey can’t get in his head. I’d love to see Spidey go up against a merc Electro – hired by/created by some yet-unknown uber villain. As the movie progresses Electro’s ego gets involved and he starts to take it personally that he can’t kill Spiderman and his powers become more and more unpredictable! Finally at the end as Spidey stands over a defeated and for the first time depowered Electro he sees some evidence of Oscorp (logo, tattoo, something…) – dramatic thunder clap, and a lightning lit silouette of the Green Goblin or Doc Ock appears over on the wall in front of Spiderman – credits!

    Marvel needs to take a page out of Batman Begins’ play book about setting up their next villain. Every time Batman flips over that playing card I remember the grin that came across my face watching that in the theatre! Awesome!

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

      I agree. I don’t necesarrily agree with the whole silhouette thing (though nice touch for a comic panel) but definitely that idea. I’m sure we’ll get something along those lines though with OsCorp being front and center withn this film. We may get a Dr. Otto OCtavius cameo or something for all we know. I definitely agree the next villain should be someone he has no connection too. I’d love to see Morbius done too. Take a page form the Fox cartoon.

      • Juggernaut

        I’d like to see some Marvel style cameos and references in this new Spidey series. Obviously Oscorp will be introduced here. A quick shot of Octavius’ name on a door would be cool. I really think that they should do a lot of set-up for other characters. In the Raimi trilogy the only tent pole that they set was Connors, who they never got around to using! My pick for a second film villain would be one of four: Mysterio, Kraven, Electro or Vulture. Re-hashing GG, Doc Ock or Sandman in this series would be a mistake in my opinion. Brin g on some new villains and keep it fresh. Although, TDK struck gold with their Joker.

        • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

          Agreed! Actually they should have OsCorp as a think tank much like the Bacter Building in the ultimate universe. Have all these scientists working on different things that would eventually make tehir way to villains or becoming villains. Dr. Octavius and Dr. Adrian Toomes could be working their. Osborn would be unscrupulus in his business ethics, taking full credit for designs and creations others had done (though he himself is a genius) or just incorporating it into his own works. Toomes’ anti grav tech would create the harness for the Vulture after Osborn tries to take it (using it for the future goblin glider). Of course we know what we’d do with Octavius. To not rehash lets have Dr. Michael Morbius, genetisicst and expert in blood borne pathogens work there as well. He is obessed with Spiderman’s abilities and comes upon a blood sample from a fight at OsCorp. Studying it he reverse engineers itand creates a new strain, from Bat DNA this time to help fight cure a rare blood disease from his native land. Injecting himself with it he becomes Morbius the Living Vampire. Just some ideas.

          • Ncounter

            Then maybe don’t forget to add,to Oscorp, a prototype endosceleton armor – for the future Rhino))) A hint of Miles Warren – future Jackal (also a PhD in BioChmistry) and experemental Shock Gloves foe Herman Schultz – future Shocker….and we have a humongous base for future sequels….pardon my fantasies running wild)))
            PS I’m not even starting on Tombstone (my favorite), Silvermane and the rest of the gang….and oh!oh! CArnage….

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            Yeah was thinmking that too. Prettuy much go with the weapons designer angle for the government but have Osborn trying appropriate all the invetions for his own purposes. I didn’t want too many though cause that would just be over doing it.

          • Ncounter

            Osborn failed to deliver anything usefull for the army in the first movie…lets hope he’s a more corporate ,evil-genius, dude in the new movies.
            My only remaining wish is that they tie a little bit of the new Spidey to the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe.

    I think I just web-slinged my pants (O_O)
