Here’s a new trailer for Marc Webb’s Spidey reboot The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield as the web-slinger. In perhaps the most successful trailer yet, you will get a closer look at the film’s villain The Lizard and you’ll tap into Peter Parker’s funny bone. It features a song from The Glitch Mob, so that doesn’t hurt.
Here is a grander look at Marc Webb’s Spidey reboot The Amazing Spider-Man. In it we see Andrew Garfield decked out in the suit and in action; we are introduced to Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacey; and we get more than a glimpse of Rhys Ifans as the film’s big baddie The Lizard. Will Webb’s reboot tell a better Spider-Man origin story than Sam Raimi did with Tobey Maguire in the lead role? Your answer comes July 12 when The Amazing Spider-Man releases in 3D.
The new poster celebrating Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot finds Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker living among the shadows, perched high and casting down the iconic Spidey signal. The intriguing tagline tells the audience to expect The Amazing Spider-Man to tell “The Untold Story” of Peter Parker’s transformation into the webbed superhero. We’ll soon see how the origin story differs from Sam Raimi’s 2002 effort when the reboot hits theatres July 3, 2012.
The Marc Webb Spider-Man reboot is still in production, but Sony Pictures is giving us a glimpse into the movie right now! Unfortunately the trailer does not overly impress; there’s a feeling of been there done that and it lingers throughout. However, it must be said that Mirror’s Edge-like first person sequence during the final act of the clip is fun to watch in full screen HD. At Comic Con it was made official that Rhys Ifans will indeed play the villainous Lizard, though his mutant form is not revealed in this trailer. Anticipate the webslinger’s return in The Amazing Spider-Man July 3, 2012.
Entertainment Weekly’s got their hands on a batch of amazing stills from the set of Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man reboot.

Finally; we are no longer required to refer to the new Spidey franchise as the “Marc Webb reboot.” Today Columbia Pictures announced the title of the flick: The Amazing Spider-Man. That happens to be the name of the original Spidey comic book and makes a great title for upcoming movie because we know that it will take place during Peter Parker’s youthful high school years. Inside the press release the studio attached the first image of Andrew Garfield in the famous full mask and suit; if you’ll recall the previous image we saw featured Garfield in the suit sans the mask. Looks awesome, huh? The attention to detail here is absolutely phenomenal. Take a look at the wrists–those are mechanical web shooters!

The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field, releases in 3D on July 3, 2012. (Long wait, I know.)
