Can’t wait for Marc Webb’s version of “The Amazing Spider-Man”? Well you’ll just have to wait a little longer, buddy. The movie doesn’t open until July 3, 2012, when the kids are all out of school. What a coincidence! Until then, check out the 4-minute super duper preview that Sony has been promising for the last two weeks. I think we can all agree that it was definitely worth the wait. And look, now we know who C. Thomas Howell is playing in the movie! Some dude with a kid, as it turns out. Hunh.

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.

    Looks really good. I’m exited for this one!

  • Dedpool

    WooHoo!!! Real Spidey!! I’ve just been reading the Dan Slott run in the comics from “Big Time” through “Spider-Island” and I have to say good stuff! Can’t wait for the “Ends of the Earth” Trade. Bring on Amazing!!

    • Wingcm

      I’ve been keeping up with the comics for a while now and Slott’s run is definitely one of the best so far. It feels like Spider-Man is actually going somewhere. I especially liked the introduction of Horizon Labs. “Ends of the Earth” feels a culmination of everything that has come before. Not sure where Slott will go after that arc is up.

      As for the movies. It looks impressive. I like the inclusion of Gwen Stacey, but as everyone familiar with the comics knows, she doesn’t have a very promising future (other than as a clone–kidding).

      I was curious if supporting characters such as Flash, Liz, Ms. Brant and the such were included in the movie. In the comics they become pretty cool characters, but in the past movies (and TV series) they’ve always been so one dimensional.

      • Dedpool

        Flash will be. Not sure about Liz Allen or Betty brant, though betty is in hi later years when he’s out of school. Also just because she had a bad ending in the comic doesn’t mean it will happen the same way in the films. She didn’t die in “Spectacular Spiderman” and was a main character.

        As for the comics I agree 100% I was really upset with the whole idea of his marriage being undone, and stayed away from Brand New Day as much as I could but, “Big Time” got me. The Horizon Labs thing and him having his own vault where he keeps his spidertech adn suits is awesome. And they haven;t cut his ties to the Bugle completely either though he can’t take pics anymore. I really am enjoying the work,.

    • Lexavi80

      Yeah! Loved that. Can’t wait for this!

      Ded, can you recommend some Spiderman good comics? I just had a couplke of Omnibuses but I’m thinking about Sperder-Island, but I don’t know what’s the chronology.

      • Dedpool

        “Big Time,” “Matters of Life and Death,” “Fantastic Spider-man,” “Return of Anti-Venom,” “Spider Island” I also got the Venom trade (issues 1-5), as Flash gets the sybiote in “Matters of Life and Death” and “Spider Island” has issue 6-9. That’s the run I just got and read. I’m continuing on with it.

    looks pretty good…cept for all the scenes with peters face is exposed… pure wackness….

    • Dedpool

      Well we don’t know the context of him having his mask off. It’s already been established that Gwen will know his identitiy so that can account for one person he’s talkign to. The other scene with the mask being pulled off is probably Connors/Lizard which doesn’t make it a bad thing either. Especially if they’re going with Connors and Parker’s dad being former colleagues. Him knowing Spidey’s identity would cement the trust that they have EVEN if Connor’s turns back into the Lizard again. And the scene with the kid was perfect! Spidey would definitely unmask for a kid to get his trust in order to save him. Love the part where he says “Put the mask on, it will make you strong” THAT is Spidey! Hell I’m guessing half the times we see his using his pwoers out of costume is when he first gets them.

      • X_p

        i kinda get the scene with the kid, and im on board with the relationship of peter and connors being strong and connors being smart enough to figure out hes spiderman. im almost on board with his mask being ripped off while hes knocked out. something that never happens to batman btw. hes never “out” enough to have his mask taken off i guess haha but the thing is when they take off his mask it ruins it visually for me. and i think the action shots suffer a lil bit cus i wanna see spidey you know what i mean? not peter parker jumping off roofs with an giant antenna falling on him. can he just grab his mask and throw it back on before the action resumes. i liked how raimi did damage to the mask in part one but then he always had the movies end with peters face being all over the place for people to see. could it be some hollywood thing where they think we relate more to a human face so they keep having him take it off? or is it that they just dont get that when spidey is young his secret identity was all he had and he super took care of always wearing a mask for his crime fighting hobbies? either way theyre wrong imo

        • Dedpool

          It’s a little of the relating thing, and also for dramatic effect. Again we don’t know the context. So him being unmasked by Connors could imediately preceed the scene of him on the roof with the antenea just barely missing him. As far as i could see that was the ONLY major scene where he’s full on Spidey without hsi mask other than the one with the kid, which I really love. It looks like the cops try to unmask him and that’s when he does his escape. But all the other scenes seem pre-spidey. Like the one on the train and such. The one on the bridge actually has him getting his suit on before he goes to help people. So I think we’re safe for the most part. Context man. Can’t get any of it from a trailer or preview.

          • X_p

            ya i suppose so, i gotta admit that is my only gripe about this but im all over it in terms of everything else. the costume has grown on me and the overall speed and colors and treatment of everything is a lot more exciting than what raimi did. the web-slinging city action is better than raimi’s too, and spidey is actually more of a smart ass so thats also a huge improvement. overall theyve done a pretty good job of upgrading everything and im way happy bout it.
