The Amazing Spider-Man New Trailer

A new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man has hit the web and it looks like we’re finally going to get a decent live action Spider-Man movie.

Straight off the bat, I award this movie extra points for not having Toby Maguire in it.  Nothing against Toby, but maybe he should change career.  There’s got to be a job where he can be as plain and boring as he naturally is and they won’t need to reboot it after three bad attempts.  Go ahead Toby prove me wrong, make a good film.  You can’t, can you?

Even more points should be given, because the film doesn’t just pretend Peter’s parents never existed.  One key difference this time around is that they go into, to an extent, the lives of Peter’s parents.  The comic books have revisited, and changed, Spider-Man’s history, making his parents S.H.I.E.L.D. agents as a result.  Initially, I thought this was going to be part of the movie, but now I’m not so sure.  I think they’re just really focusing on his dad’s work at OSCORP.  The villain of the film is the Lizard, aka Dr. Connors, who, in the trailer, tells Peter about the work he did with Peter’s dad.

A major difference between this film and the previous trilogy is that Mary Jane is not present.  In her place is Peter’s first love, Gwen Stacey.  Gwen appeared in the third and final bad Spider-Man movie, it was terrible.  Every time there is a bridge on the trailer I got a little nervous, but as the Green Goblin isn’t in the film, I’m not as that worried about Gwen’s safety.  I’m referring to the events of the comic books that unfortunately led to Spider-Man accidentally breaking Gwen’s spine and killing her, it happens.  Remember though, these movies don’t directly follow the comics, so Gwen Stacy may well survive the whole franchise, assuming there are sequels.

Is it strange that I couldn’t help but wonder whether there would be a game version?  One of the very few good things about the other Spider-Man movies was the games.  So I looked it up and found that, not only was a game being made, a trailer had already been released and it looks great.  Check out both trailers below.

What do you think?  Did you like the previous Spider-Man films?  Are you looking forward to this one?  Has Toby Maguire ever been good in any movie?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment.  Also don’t forget to follow me here or on Twitter (!/AdamODwyer1) and, if you like this post, click the like button.

    It looks pretty good. I didn’t mind the last ones but i wasnt a fan of Toby Maguire either. I’d give this one a chance it looks much better and Emma Stone is in it yay 🙂
