“I am issuing an arrest warrant … for the masked vigilante … known … as Spider-Man.”
The second trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man was released online at 3 AM ET, midnight PT Monday night, and with it comes a lot of hype and expectations for what this movie can be.
Those Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies? Good and entertaining. But forget about them, their characters, and that entire cinematic universe.
With director Marc Webb’s reboot, it’s all irrelevant. It’s like it never happened. And really, after that third Raimi Spidey-flick, maybe we’re all better off that way.
Following a viewing of the newest trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, I dare say a lot of you Spidey fans and non-believers alike will be yearning for more of where this came from. Check it out below, and hit the jump afterwards to read B’s instant trailer reaction (hint: excitement ensues).
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN — TRAILER #2
Well, here it is: This skeptic has officially become a believer. I was excited for Marc Webb’s (500 Days of Summer) reboot of the Spider-Man franchise when it was first announced, and I fell in love with the casting. Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Rhys Ifans together in one film? And not to mention Martin Sheen and Sally Field as well. But after that first trailer’s video game-like visuals (first-person Spidey view, really?), all of my attention turned to the summer’s other big comic book adaptations, Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises.
Boy, how much difference 2 minutes and 34 seconds can make.
I was pretty excited for what might be in store after reading some audience reactions to the 3D trailer and 2D sizzle reel that was shown across the globe earlier today to some lucky fans and critics, but this one outdid all expectations.
Peter Parker is a smart-ass?
Spidey is an unwanted vigilante?
Stunning visuals and some potentially good 3D?
Marc Webb’s doing a darker take on Spider-Man?
And was that our first official look at The Lizard?
Boy, oh boy, oh boy. I’m having a little trouble containing myself right now. That 2:34 is like Spider-Man meets The Dark Knight meets Star Wars. I can only imagine what type of reception a trailer like that would have gotten during the Super Bowl on Sunday, but the studio wanted to keep things under wraps to give this thing a proper release.
And man, what a good idea that was.
I am now officially hyped to see The Amazing Spider-Man this summer, and I look forward to seeing just what exactly is “The Untold Story” that Marc Webb has up his sleeve. The Amazing Spider-Man swings into theaters on July 3.
