He's back! Now that everyone has been watching the second official trailer for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man over and over, we're all getting excited for the summer to come. I was watching the trailer in high def and at the end, noticed something very odd hidden quickly in the lower left of a frame, linking to an actual website. Spider-Man is getting a viral or ARG? Awesome! The phrase and website hidden is Mark of the Spider-Man, which I definitely think is the start of something bigger and I'm glad they're using the "mark" of the Spider-Man, because I'm loving the logos and spray-paint imagery from this movie (like this).
The words were found at around 2:28 into the new trailer in the lower left of the CG, which links to the site:
As of now there's nothing there on MarkoftheSpider-Man.com except some static video boxes and that Spider-Man logo that we've seen from the trailer and footage for The Amazing Spider-Man. I'm very excited to see where this goes and what goes on. Mark of the Spider, like the spray paintings on the wall in that shot from the trailer? I hope we get to see more of this for real, though I have no idea what this really is. We'll keep you updated and hope this leads somewhere, but for now check out the new viral site and rewatch the trailer to get fully up to speed on this new Spider-Man universe. I'm very excited for Marc Webb's new take with Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, I thought the footage looked awesome, and can't wait to see more!
