After a lot of buzz about secret events revealing new footage, a new trailer for The Amazing Spider-man was released to the public this morning.

The trailer goes much deeper into how this film is going to be different from Sam Raimi’s original ten years ago. First off, Andrew Garfield is a more sarcastic Spidey. We see him messing around with criminals more, just like in the comics. This story is also more about Peter Parker’s parents, who barely got a mention in the previous trilogy.

This movie also seems to downplay the death of Uncle Ben, played by Martin Sheen this time around. I have a problem with that since that is the driving force behind Peter becoming Spider-man, not the mystery surrounding his parents. I also am not too happy with the look of the Lizard, played by Rhys Ifans. He just looks ridiculous and there is very little interesting about the fights we see between him and Spider-man. My last annoyance from the cast comes with Dennis Leary’s seemingly-annoying turn as Captain Stacy. Do we really need to see another superhero chased down by police?

But there are definitely some positives here as well. Garfield seems far more fit for the role than Tobey Maguire ever did. Also Emma Stone is the perfect choice for Gwen Stacy and she looks like she pulls it off. These two could potentially save this movie. But for now the jury is still out. I guess we will just have to wait for July 3rd to see.
