The Amazing Spider-Man Super Preview

I know that I haven’t posted much lately, which is because I’ve been doing exams.  My last exam was today so I thought what better way to celebrate than doing a blog post and lucky this morning I heard about a four minute long preview of the upcoming Spider-Man movie.

There are a lot of stuff in the trailer that we’ve already seen in previous trailers, but the new stuff is pretty cool, including one seen that shows Peter trying to save a child from a falling car.  The method he uses is different than you might expect, it’s sort of like something you’d see in a real life rescue show or a drama and it was nice to see some heart in a superhero movie.  It really reinforced what director, Marc Webb, previously said about the film being about Peter and his orgins rather than a reharshed version of the previous live action films.

The Amazing Spiderman New Trailer and info

To avoid my usual pun about Spiderman info hitting the web, I’m just going to say that there is a new trailer for the upcoming superhero film The Amazing Spiderman and you can see it here, or in many other places.

So far all we’ve really seen is the action, but this time we get to see what’s at the heart of the story.  Peter desperately wants to discover the truth about his parents, where are they and why did they leave him with his aunt and uncle.  While going on this journey of discovery, he becomes Spiderman and learns that he can be a hero.

The film’s director, Marc Webb (oh come on seriously), said, at a press event, that he thinks of this as less about Spiderman and more about Peter Parker and his origin story.  Having suffered in silence through the last attempt at bring Spiderman to the big screen, I can honestly say that a character driven film will be a welcome change.

Though the well-developed characters and interesting plot take precedence over all else, in my eyes, let’s not forget about the action.  The trailer gives us a better look at the lizard, who looks to be a formidable enemy for the young web slinger.  When creating the character Webb aimed for a facial design that would be able to show emotions, though the only emotion shown in the trailer is anger, I’m sure there’s a full range of others to come in the movie.

New Spider-man Clip

A clip from the upcoming Spider-man movie, The Amazing Spider-man, has hit the web.

It’s not exactly a spectacular, exciting or vital scene, but, if you’re excited about the film, this will help tide you over for a while.  The clip shows Peter on his way to see Gwen, maybe for the dinner scene that was shown in the trailer, but the doorman will not let him in until he lets him search his bag.

What could possibly be in there that would stop Peter giving the guard a look?  How will Peter get out of this situation?  We’ll have to wait to know for sure, but my guess is his Spider-man stuff is in the bag and Gwen probably sees him and calls for him to be let in.  Could be wrong, but those are the obvious answers.

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.

The Amazing Spider-Man

Finally, a live action Spider-Man movie that Toby Maguire hasn’t ruined, I apologise to all Toby Maguire fans, his parents, but let’s face it he was completely wrong for the part.  That said, it isn’t entirely his fault, it’s not like he came up with all the really bad storylines.  Whose idea was it to put three villains in the last movie?  Anyway, on to the reboot.

Recently a trailer was released, giving us our first real look at the film.  Initially what stands out is the tone of the film, which, following in the footsteps of other reboots, is a lot darker than previous instalments.  Movies thrive when the characters are believable and the problem with a lot of superhero movies is that they don’t take themselves seriously, thus any chance of relating to the characters goes out the window.  In recent years, superhero movies have began to be taken serious, X-Men basically lead the way, and I’m glad to say that it looks like Spider-Man will be following suit.

The trailer starts with Richard and Mary Parker leaving Peter with Aunt May and Uncle Ben.  Richard tells Peter that he will be safe with them, when asked where he is going he says that there is something he and Mary have to do.  When Spider-Man comics first came out Richard and Mary Parker were simply regular people who died leaving behind their son.  However, years later their backstory was retroactively changed making them S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.  This was ignored in the previous film series, but it does sound like they are including it in this one.  You probably know that Marvel is working on linking many of there films into The Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. has played a part throughout all those movies, but Spider-Man is not one of them.  This film is outside of that umbrella.

There’s a part in the trailer were you see Peter actually sowing the costume.  He’d have to be pretty good to make a costume like that, but that’s slightly more believable than a teenage boy knowing how to make web shooters, which will be in the film and are shown in the trailer.  The lack of web cartridges was one of the complaints fans had about the last film series, but to be honest it was never that important to me.  If a spider bite gave you the power to stick to walls and jump really far, why couldn’t it give you web shooting?  However, including it does show that they listened to fans complains, which is usually a good sign.

Dr. Connors, aka the Lizard, is the main antagonist of the film and is shown a few times, in human form, during the trailer.  In the comics, Dr. Connors mutates into a the Lizard after an experiment, were he attempted to use lizard DNA to regenerate his arm, went wrong.  The scene briefly shown in the trailer indicates that the same thing will happen in the film.  We won’t know for sure until the movie comes out July next year, but hopefully we’ll have another trailer soon.

What do you think?  Are you glad they are rebooting the franchise?  Do you think web the Lizard is a good villain to start with?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below, also don’t forget to subscribe and click the like button.
