And so the Spidey mania begins! Sure “The Amazing Spider-Man” won’t be hitting theaters until next year, but that doesn’t stop the studio from getting started on all the hype and promo stuff early. That’s why next week, the teaser trailer for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” will be hitting the web (no pun intended) next week! The trailer will also be shown during some of the “Captain America: The First Avenger” screenings.
According to SHH, the trailer will come in at 2 minutes and 30 seconds. 2 minutes and 30 seconds of glory if you ask me. From what I’ve seen set pics wise and with the cast members that are apart of the new Spider-Man reboot, it doesn’t look like it’ll disappoint and I hope it doesn’t. Along with the announcement, EW has debuted their latest issue with Andrew Garfield on the cover in his Spider-Man suit. EW has even confirmed that the Lizard is in fact the film’s villain. Here’s some stuff from the issue:
EW can also exclusively confirm that Rhys Ifans will be playing Doc Conners, who, in an experiment gone wrong, transforms into one of Spider-Man’s most formidable foes ever, the Lizard.
Four years after Spider-Man 3, starring Tobey Maguire, “The Amazing Spider-Man” promises to be a “more contemporary,” “more gritty,” and “more character-driven” look at the comic book hero. He’s a hero the 27-year-old Garfield knows well. Growing up, “I related to Peter Parker [Spidey's alter ego] so much because I felt like someone else inside,” he says. “I loved the comic books and the animated TV series and I even dressed up as Spider-Man as a kid.”
Adds Webb: “Ultimately what this movie is about is a kid who grows up looking for his father and finds himself. And that’s a Spider-Man story we haven’t seen before.”
Along with the hi-res EW cover, ComingSoon posted some hi-res pictures from the issue:
Edit: EW added some new photos which I’ve added to the article now.
“The Amazing Spider-Man” will hit theaters on July 3, 2012 in 2D and 3D and star Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen and Sally Field.
