The Amazing Spider-Man Spider-Man

"Do you have any idea what you really are?" This trailer is arriving online early, but this isn't a bootleg, a clean HD copy of it has already arrived online and there's not much to do at this point besides give you guys a glimpse because it is awesome. I was expecting Marc Webb to do great things, but this is better than I even imagined. The first official trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, has emerged on YouTube (via SlashFilm) and it will leave some of you with your jaw on the floor by the end. That sequence at the end is just incredible, I hope it's in the movie. Cannot wait to see more - enjoy!

Watch the first official teaser trailer for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man:

You can download The Amazing Spider-Man trailer in High Def on Yahoo

Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, our hero Spider-Man, as well as Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans as Dr. Connors, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben Parker, Sally Field as Aunt May and Denis Leary as George Stacy. 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb is directing this new reboot of Spider-Man, from a screenplay co-written by Alvin Sargent (Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 & 3), Steve Kloves (Harry Potter movies) and James Vanderbilt (The Rundown, Zodiac, The Losers) in various iterations. Sony Pictures will be bringing The Amazing Spider-Man to theaters next summer, on July 3rd, 2012, but in the meantime we've heard there's a lot coming at Comic-Con this week, so stick around here!

the ending sequence was inspired by Mirror's Edge game 

Lord Denethor on Jul 20, 2011


more like anything with pov parkour

Jericho on Jul 20, 2011


I know but it still looks exactly like the video game. evn the part when you see him on the mirror. 

Drayzoe on Jul 20, 2011


he's got the parkour luck.

Phillip Gockel on Jul 20, 2011


No, it's easily able to tell that it's Mirror's Edge inspired. From the angles to the end scene. Stop trying to be "that guy".

Daniel Vu Tran on Jul 20, 2011


How is it easy to tell that it's inspired by Mirror's Edge?  Because it's a first person sequence on screen?  Maybe it was inspired because going through the city as Spiderman would be a cool sequence?

Vision on Jul 20, 2011

7 Here it it. Even the reflection scene. But whatever it was awesome, and I hope it is in the movie.

david on Jul 20, 2011


wait...Mirrors edge is out already? WHEN!?!?!

Jericho on Jul 20, 2011


@ Jericho, Mirror's Edge was out last year. Great game, shouldn't have added in gunplay at the last minute... and YES the ending sequence is A LOT like Mirror's Edge, I know I nearly 1000'd the game on my 360. Time Trials were just insane.

Anonymous on Jul 24, 2011


THEYLL BE YOUTUBE VIDEOS COMPARING THE 2 within the week i promise its almost exactly the same 

Angelfigueroa81 on Jul 20, 2011


Well, that would be funny, since a lot of people pretty much ignored or outright slagged off MIRROR'S EDGE when it came out. I liked the trailer, though.  Not going to over-analyze it, however--I'll wait until the actual film comes out.

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


Good. I too will also do this, and so should everybody else.

Anonymous on Jul 25, 2011


or the end of the doom movie?

Rift on Jul 20, 2011


still cool though

Lord Denethor on Jul 20, 2011


Really liked it except for the ending point-of-view scene. The CGI made it feel like a videogame. And the point-of-view sequence could of been its own teaser in my opinion.

4k4k on Jul 20, 2011


You are correct, sir.

Fuck You on Jul 21, 2011


sorry. the cgi at the end looks terrible...

just a guest on Jul 20, 2011


Hey, it'll probably look better once the film comes out.  The same thing happened with the early IRON MAN trailers.

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


Scopedog, then what is the point of a teaser/trailer if its not a true representation of the actual movie ? Same goes for last few years with game demos where were are told that a shitty demo is not a true representation of the actual game.. Why the hell release it then !!!

Tester on Jul 20, 2011


To hype the movie.  Rise of Planet of the Apes did the same thing.  The CGI has gotten progressively better in the newer trailers. 

Vision on Jul 20, 2011


I think its one of those sequences that won't be in the final film but merely for hype purposes

Jaf on Jul 20, 2011


i agree

SDotKillsALot on Jul 20, 2011


it doesn't premiere for a year. i'm sure effects are not polished.

SDotKillsALot on Jul 20, 2011


The part at the end looks very CG.  It's still early though.

Cburns77 on Jul 20, 2011


No shit!

Fuck You on Jul 21, 2011


I've got high hopes. Saving judgement for a full trailer, but so far I am definitely interested. Love the cast, although I am surprised we haven't heard anything about Norman & Harry Osborn. Also, anyone else want JK Simmons back for JJJ?

Pricetag on Jul 20, 2011


J.K. Simmons is hilarious.  He really owned that character for good.

JL on Jul 20, 2011


Wow not what I expected going to pass so far

SHANEDAV on Jul 20, 2011


Loved everything except for the CG POV ending.  Otherwise, that was pretty fantastic.

deltavoyage on Jul 20, 2011



Jericho on Jul 20, 2011


Another brooding super hero huh? Great.

GMB on Jul 20, 2011


I don't know if you've seen Captain America but there has definitely been a shift from goofy-leaning superhero movies to serious films with real, human themes and characters to which people can relate. I think this film is going to be great and it's made me more optimistic about future hero movies. I think Batman Begins and The Dark Knight set a new bar for this genre and it'll be for the better.

Eric on Jul 24, 2011


Ok, Im sold on Gwen Stacy.

Voice of Reason on Jul 20, 2011


Geez, I liked the POV stuff. This looks good. Just wish it was not ANOTHER Origin story. I hope they deal with that quickly.

Hallospaceboy on Jul 20, 2011


i foresee a vomiting feeling when seeing it in 3d

Odball on Jul 20, 2011


Too Soon! 

TooSoon on Jul 20, 2011


I'm Really tired of reboot/remake whatever they want to call it. Therefore I'll pass.

Gadget on Jul 20, 2011


Yea, I hate movies too. Especially movies (which don't come out for a year) that try to revamp a dead series. Simple minds think alike.

Tyler Morgan on Jul 20, 2011


Sheesh, didn't realize being tired of something was such an offensive position.  Gadget didn't say anything about it being a good or bad movie.  Just that he/she was tired of the familiar.  Oh that's so terrible!

Cburns77 on Jul 20, 2011


If he's tired of the familiar then he really shouldn't be watching movies. They all borrow from one another. Yes. Even Inception if anyone wants to bring that up. The ones with somewhat original story (Coincidentally Memento) are far and few in between, you can't expect the majority of movies to be like this. 

Daniel Vu Tran on Jul 20, 2011


 Um... in the original post he said he wasn't going to watch the movie.  So there you go. I was just trying to point out that there really isn't anything wrong with watching a movie trailer and saying you don't want to see that particular movie because you feel it's too familiar to what you've seen lately. That doesn't make a person simple-minded.

Cburns77 on Jul 20, 2011


There is no new thing under the sun, yet we still continue to go to the theaters.  I may see repeat in something you perceive as totally new, and vice-versa, but truly, all of these stories have come and pass hundreds of years before us.

JL on Jul 20, 2011


Yes I know this.  But it doesn't mean that people can't get bored with movies.  I'm 26 and I find it harder and harder to find a movie I actually want to watch.  And it's because as you said there is no new thing under the sun.  Don't confuse boredom with seeing the samething over and over again, with being oblivious to recycled themes.

Cburns77 on Jul 20, 2011


@cf739b7ea307b8a189d3bf29daf813cf:disqus Don't get me wrong.  I'll take repackaged goods.  I just watched The Deathly Hallows Part II, and it was awesome.  I know it's the same old Good vs. Evil, Love Conquers All story, but it's wrapped in such a pretty package that I can't help but delude myself into thinking I'm seeing something new.  I got bored pretty quick with the Saw movies and the plethora of other gore-a-thons that followed.  However, I still get excited for stuff like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings and Batman.  I think most people are biased one way or the other and those who aren't probably don't watch that much TV or cinema.  Perhaps that's the best thing to do.

JL on Jul 22, 2011


You mean this red band Conan trailer we posted three days ago? We don't miss trailers, ever, so always watch However if you're referring to the recent "battle clip", we don't ever post any "clips" from movies, so we won't be posting that.

Alex Billington on Jul 20, 2011


LOL. "We don't miss trailers, ever"  I love it <3 ^^

Daniel Vu Tran on Jul 20, 2011


Meh not sure if i like the replacement. as much as TM was whinging the whole spiderman franchise

Luke Hanna on Jul 20, 2011


I'm a little underwhelmed by it. Thought they'd have more Spidey. I hope the Mirror's Edge scene isn't in the final film. What I do like is Andrew. He seems like a good choice, as I never liked Tobey...Toby....Tobeh?

Chris Amaya on Jul 20, 2011


kunta kinte

Nick on Jul 21, 2011


I enjoyed the CGI part more then the acting. So basically over Spiderman on film. 

Brandon on Jul 20, 2011


He's still swinging through the air like he's uncoordinated.  I wish he would for once in the movies look like he does in the Todd Mcfarlane comics (posing like a cool Spiderman).  The dark tone of the trailer is awesome though.  If they get the comic relief right than it will be more faithful to the comics. 

DevilSpider on Jul 20, 2011


But DS...remember that he's just starting out in this.  And while a McFarlane look would be awesome (and a headache to the stunt crew and VFX guys), you have to realize that by the time McFarlane did his run, Peter was Spidey for a few years, he wasn't a newbie. I dig the tone of the trailer, but I'll reserve final judgement for the movie.

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


I just can't get excited for a film with so much CGI. And the kid looks so dorky.

Postogirl2006 on Jul 20, 2011


How do you know it's "so much CGI"?  Did you see a breakdown of the effects in the trailer?  Or is it just so darned easy to cry out, "Too much CGI!!" every time a new SF/Fantasy/Superhero film comes out?

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


Yes, because Peter Parker is such a stud in the comic books.  Here, we will use your line of thinking for another movie."Man, Conan has too many muscles in this new movie, and looks to much like a barbarian."

Frank on Jul 20, 2011


Wasen't emo Parker one of the things everyone hated about the last one?

Staatz on Jul 20, 2011


Wow, very original, cuz we havent see this story before. Come on, was this really needed ?  But I am still hopeful and it's only a teaser.. And I hope the actual movie does not look like that terrible CGI Mirror's Edge jaw dropping end !

Tester on Jul 20, 2011


It's a shame I really liked Maguire, Dunst, Franco (i know he wouldn't be in 4th part but still) and Raimi, and lets not forget Rosemary Harris, who was perfect as May Parker.

klaviatura on Jul 20, 2011


That end sequence -- I've seen it before. It was in a game called "Mirror's Edge." Sigh. I was hoping it would be real, wire-based camera work, not same ol' same ol' 3-D.

CisforCinema on Jul 20, 2011


meh.  So far I don't really care about this movie and will pass.  Maybe when we see the villain...or emma stone naked.  

Nic on Jul 20, 2011


Emma Stone, Mark Webb, and I'm in.

Jackson on Jul 20, 2011


I likey. I LIKEY ;-P

Judasbarronx1 on Jul 20, 2011


Not bad! I like the dark tone of the trailer. I know it's early and the CGI of 'Spider-Man' swinging towards the mirrored building at the end looked as if the CGI web was actually linear to the sky! 'Spider-Man' was swinging from the actual sky. I'm sure they'll fix this, though. I'm in, come July 2012.

Spider on Jul 20, 2011


so far good

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


Cool!  People keep saying the end sequence reminds them of the Mirror's Edge video game, but I'm reminded of the Nicholas Hammond tv show from the 70's where we saw Spidey's POV as he climbed walls.  Even the costume has the feel of that show's look IMO. (I have a soft spot for that show so don't flame me)  Coincidence?  Hmmmmm....  Anyway, looking forward to seeing more.  So far so good.

Astroboy101 on Jul 20, 2011


I won't flame you, but that show was a POS nevertheless, mostly because of the story, and because of how effortlessly Hammond's Peter Parker becomes Spider-Man just like that. Plus also for a lot of other factors (trying to do a character like this on a TV budget, and when effects weren't advanced enough to do said character-although I must admit, at least he wasn't so poor like Parker usually is.)

Anonymous on Jul 25, 2011


Whoa, that was a STRAIGHT rip-off of "Mirror's Edge"! Just like when the Prince of Persia movie ripped off "Assassin's Creed" with the rooftop eagle vision! Although I feel that this reboot was uneccessary, I do like how they use Gwen starting out and more depth with Pete's parents. Oh well, it's like that South Park episode..."Whatever, you'll see it, f*ck you!" lol

Skeet on Jul 20, 2011


A lot of hater on here... these are the same people that said Heathe Ledger will suck as the joker. To be honest Spirder Man needed a reboot the cast was getting old, the story was getting stale and tone was too soft and childish. 

A Villa88 on Jul 20, 2011


That's exactly what I'm sayin! The fact that this movie looks this good, this early should be getting everyone amped up! And to those who are complaining about another "origin" story, those are usually the most interesting ones. Just the fact that they even mentioned Peter's parents in the trailer shows that they're taking the detail of this story to a whole different level. Can't wait! 

Danimal on Jul 20, 2011


Agreed.  And they also claimed that THOR would tank, that X-MEN:FIRST CLASS looked "gay", and....ah hell, they're so busy moaning and groaning that it just gets old and stale.  F**k 'em.

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


It must be very easy to throw that word "hater" around, isn't it? I have an opinion--something that's encouraged on this website. The movie is coming out anyway, so why can't I have my opinion? Geez.

Skeet on Jul 20, 2011


Yeah, but at least these folks are aware of ME, since that great game was basically kicked to the curb by the public. "Oh well, it's like that South Park episode..."Whatever, you'll see it, f*ck you!" lol" Yep.  So very f*cking true!

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


Not to spark a debate here, but I guarantee that if we lived in an alternate reality and this exact trailer had 3 more seconds added to it that read "From Christopher Nolan" - everyone would be saying how incredible this movie looks!

Louis Plamondon on Jul 20, 2011


1001% TRUE!

Zee TX on Jul 20, 2011



Anonymous on Jul 25, 2011


i think it looks good. if you're a spiderman fan, than you should feel lucky that you get different directors takes on spidey.  i dont think its "too soon" for a reboot, i think its pretty cool we get to see a different take on the whole thing. i love chris nolans "batman" universe, but when they reboot batman in 5 to 10 years, i will be first in line to see it, because i love movies. and girls.

quityosleanin on Jul 20, 2011


"because i love movies. and girls" Oh good for YOU.

Fuck You on Jul 21, 2011


I'm 75% sold. The other 25% will depend on the look of the villain.

BlackFantasyFilmmaker on Jul 20, 2011



Zee TX on Jul 20, 2011


I still think it looks crap.

Animal on Jul 20, 2011


I'm not impressed by the trailer. It might be darker, but that first person view of Spider-Man looks bad. It makes no sense to reboot a franchise five years after the third film. Sure, the third film wasn't as great as the first two, but it was still enjoyable. All this tells me is that Sony is more concerned about making money by starting from scratch and bringing in a whole new cast so they don't have to pay as much as the original cast. I feel bad for Sam Rami because I was looking forward to the planned fourth and fifth films and then Sony just threw that idea out of the window right before production started. Not to mention no one will ever be able replace JK Simmons as J Jonah Jameson, easily the best character in Rami's trilogy.

SeanJ8 on Jul 20, 2011


looks the same..

Asumagrystsh on Jul 20, 2011


looks better than the other so called Spiderman movies, and no Tobey Maguire

andrew on Jul 20, 2011


More like it looks the same as the other Spiderman movies minus Tobey Maguire.

Fuck You on Jul 21, 2011


Toby Maguire looks a little different these days - am I'm watching a repeat? New Spidey film just too soon. Would you be happy watching a Batman begins remake in 2 years time??

Emailrossadams on Jul 20, 2011


I agree with the Reboot thing.. They should have just moved ahead with the new Cast and new Villain(s).... BUT.. The First Spiderman movie was released in 2002.... So 2012 will be a ten years time frame and Yes.. I think people would want to see Batman Begins.. New movie again after 10 years since the first.. Batman Begins.. If the upcoming movie.. TDKR is the last of this series.

Zee TX on Jul 20, 2011


I was doubtful when I first heard of new Spider-man but since he is my all time fav I will give it a shot. Nice trailer though.

Cbarnicle on Jul 20, 2011


"Clearly they havent finished the CGI. It is the same thing with the iron man 1 superbowl spot when he blows up the tank everyone was complaining that it looked so fake...but when the trailer came out it looked so real and awesome and turned from a low point to a high point." Yep.  A prime example right there.  I mean...c'mon, do people even bother to read CINEFEX nowadays?

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


Tester, as I see it (and it's just my personal view, so...) a teaser/trailer is supposed to wet your appetite, but it's not supposed to BE the whole film.  It's just two minute worth of film from a movie that will be closer to 120 minutes.  What

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


Very true. The star wars trailer was good because they LEFT all of the bad parts out. ie the acting and most of jajar 🙂  However this one, you can get a sense of 'woa' or 'meh'. I think why tell the same story again? why? Garfield looks uncomfortable and someone said it looked dark??? Musta been a diff trailer.  Anyways, i can at least say unimpressed and I would have no idea why someone would call this teaser Incredible. Again, everybody's standards are diff. Just sometimes scares me how easily people are wow'd.

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


"Just sometimes scares me how easily people are wow'd." Agreed, buzzfunk...but also, how easily people fall into the "meh" mode too! But again, I'll still wait 'till the final film before bringing the hammer down.  I learned my lesson from THE IRON GIANT and TPM!

Anonymous on Jul 21, 2011


I really liked the first person part, I think that would be cool to see that but to anyone that is saying to much CG you should take a look at the marc webb interview. "We spent months and months and months developing rigs so he could swing in a way that wasn't computer-generated." "I wanted it to be more grounded and more realistic and that went for the emotion of the scenes, the physical action and wardrobe." Either way Im really insterested in this movie, the acting and the vision that marc webb has.

eru88 on Jul 20, 2011

Chuckso17 on Jul 20, 2011


this movie is gona be just as badass as Sam Raimi "spider-man" movie

spyder on Jul 20, 2011


This Spider man movie will be awesome just like the teaser.

Jackmooney5 on Jul 20, 2011


Slap a superhero on the screen and audiences will flock to it these days, even if they just saw the same damned story a couple of years ago. Thankfully, Chris Nolan is the only one that gets it right.

norm on Jul 20, 2011


Chris Nolan gets it right with Original stories no doubt.. But as far as Superheros are concerned.... He was lucky to have Heath Ledger as "The Joker" in the movie "The Dark Knight".... And earlier to Batman Begins.. Batman movies were treated with poor scripts and less serious efforts. So, he did gave Batman a respectable scale on screen with Batman Begins.... BUT With TDKR it feels more of a hangover of the last movie...!!

Zee TX on Jul 20, 2011


I know...I love the "only Chris Nolan gets it right!"  God Richard Donner, Tim Burton, Guillermo Del Toro, Matthew Vaughn, Joe Johnston, John Favreau, Sam Raimi (yes, him!) and yes, Brian Singer can all go pound sand, right? I agree that Nolan is solid at bringing original stories--or rather, an original slant to some familiar tropes--to the big screen.  I respect him for that.  But he is NOT the "only one who gets it" when it comes to superhero films.  There have been others who have done solid work too..

Anonymous on Jul 21, 2011


I agree. But hey get ready for the backlash for saying so.  "You just can't compare Nolan's Batman films to other super hero movies it's not fair" Blah Blah Blah. 

Awtan90 on Jul 20, 2011


LOL! True.

Fuck You on Jul 21, 2011


I think this will be good. Unfortunately for Spider-Man, The Dark Knight Rises comes out in the same month. It will definitely be overshadowed, but I will surely check em out

SDotKillsALot on Jul 20, 2011


As far as overshadowing is of a concern.... Of course people will be all up and down jumping to see how Batman dies and rises to the Bat heaven/hell.... hence..TDKR! There are fans for each of the Superheros and the one which has already made about 3Billion Franchise..(SPIDER-MAN)... You are in it to be surprised and dissapointed hoping for overshadowing effect!

Zee TX on Jul 20, 2011


The Trailer looks good.. Only wished that if Spidey had natural web shooters rather than the ones shown in this movie and instead of rebooting the series altogether.. They should have just moved forward with the new Cast and New Villain(s).. Anyways, Still good news as we get to see more of SPIDER-MAN movies..

Zee TX on Jul 20, 2011


i'm just sick of all the reboots. there was no need for this series to be rebooted since the first 3 spiderman films were arguably the greatest comic films of all time. who is the lead actor? he looks like a prawn. mary jane looks ugly. graphics are horrible. yet another bad film from hollywood. 🙁

Para on Jul 20, 2011


Are you fuckin' retarded?

Fuck You on Jul 21, 2011


the "Doom" sequence made me dizzy...  Still holding my tongue until i see next year.   

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


 I'm fine with the guy they got and with Emma Stone for sure. But damn do we really need to see spidey back in high school? Just pick up with him in college or going to college for crying out loud. Nope we get to see him:  1. Beat up another bully, Again  2. pine away for a chick, Again (ok its Emma Stone so I get it)  3. be all dorky & awkward, Again  4. Its pretty much the same movie, Again  I saw the EW photo spread looks like its damn near spidey 1 Again.   If the trailers don't blow me away before next July I'll rent the blu-ray.

Vondoom88 on Jul 20, 2011


you said it, buddy! i wasn't "wowed" by this at all. it'll be a blu rent for me too.

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


Lol. This is ridiculous. Instead of the "unrealistic" swinging we get CG parkour crawling. Instead of agreeable comic book Spidey we get MTV outsider secret smarty Spidey. Oh and that subtle ''give em the lowdown'' hallway walk where other teens stare at him... Brilliant. This has ''I can do better'' written all over it. I don't give a shit about the POV scaling. It's not that special. Call me a hater, but this looks like a waste of time.

Cracky on Jul 20, 2011


Who suppose to be the villian in this one?

Jalts4 on Jul 21, 2011


Supposed to be the Lizard, I believe.

Anonymous on Jul 21, 2011


Impressive. Didn't think much of it but seeing AG in movies like The Social Network and Never Let Me Go he's on the Cole Train to stardom. Something that I actually thought Orlando Bloom would've done being in LOTRs. Im sure this will be a fine movie.

AP on Jul 21, 2011


5 years ago I wouldve been wowed by this, I guess Im just sick of these run of the mill superhero movies. When DKR comes out, I hope the superhero movie fad dies out. This doesnt look that good.

Cody W. on Jul 21, 2011


Still not digging the new Spidey costume, but the rest of it looks nice. As a comic geek, I'll say that I absolutely love that his traditional mechanical web-shooters are making the cut. Not that I hated the organic webbing, mind you. I also hope this reboot places a bigger focus on Peter's intellect, something the Raimi trilogy only really scratched. And also, The Lizard is apparently going to be the villain this time around. I'm willing to bet this carry-over from the Raimi trilogy made it in at least partially due to fan demand.

Soul_reaver265 on Jul 21, 2011


Agree with the people who said the ending was too CG and I'm not totally convinced I want to sit through a slight variation on the same film so soon (I swear, some of the locations and scenes look identical to Raimi's first), but on it's own merits, as a stand-alone Spiderman film, it looks great.

Joshua Ligairi on Jul 21, 2011


....will it be in 3 D? if so - the have to hand out sick-sack's with the glasses...;)

FFrank on Jul 21, 2011


They could have saved themselves a lot of money by simply buying the first Raimi Spiderman and pasting over the actors with the new ones. At least that way we'd still get J K Simmons as J Jonah!

Hattori Hanzo on Jul 21, 2011


Looks really good except for the CG bit at the end. Just get the important parts right -- characters, story, script -- and the rest takes care of itself.

Anonymous on Jul 21, 2011


I'm sorry, but no gamer would ever be impressed by that scene, we've seen better! I like parts of the trailer, but it wasn't as good as i thought it would be, it just feels like "been there, done that". Can anyone explain to me why did peter's parents leave him as a child?

Anonymous on Jul 21, 2011


I thoguht they died...

Staatz on Jul 21, 2011


CGI, give it time like Iron Man. But the tone of this trailer just isnt Spidey! Maybe It'll be too soon to say, but the way they presented it just is too dark and brooding! Not every superhero suddenly has to be like Batman! The Dark Knight did amazingly well, but Spidey isn't a "dark" character! He's wise-cracking and fun-loving! Now Peter in this seems very dark and depressed. Yes, he was bullied in high-school, but he is just bullied. That's all. No reason to have him be all depressed with an emotional past. His parents left him, but he eventually got over it. But maybe this isn't how the movie is gonna be. Maybe it's gonna be a lot like the comics and appease much as much as the original movies if not more so! But even though it's too soon to say, I personally blame the trailer. It showed mostly Peter and not enough of Spidey (the title character mind you!) But maybe they're waiting to build up to him! Who knows? But I as much as everyone else do not want to see another full-fledged origin story! I can't rate the movie yet, I'll give that time, but what I can rate is the trailer, and I rate it as being poor.

Though I am not very thrilled with a "reboot" Spiderman movie (was the third one really that bad?! It was screwed up? Ok learn from the mistakes, if not learned in 4th movie, then reboot can be done. But wait a couple years will ya?!) I will give the movie a chance. In my personal opinion Marvel Studios has come out with fantasic movies such as Iron Man 1 & 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, and Captain America looks very good! Wait?...Is Marvel Studios even a part of this?! *gulp* Well, all I can say is, keep your fingers crossed!!!!!!

At least this Peter Parker is better looking than bog eyed, sooky la la Toby McGuire!  In addition I hope the focus is on Spiderman and not this love story crap over MJ like in the previous movies.

It's like a party you go to with the same people that were at the last one...except this time they're all saying more interesting stuff.

End sequence reminds me of Crysis 2 :S

This trailer is very bad. Plain and simple. Not because of the origin story, not because of the CGI, and not because of the characters. It's just a terrible trailer, with an idiotic ending sequence. I hope the actual film uses better filmmaking skills than this. Good day.

Ok, I was skeptical, but this looks pretty cool.
