The new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man is here, first shown at last night’s press event for the Marvel reboot, which took place via live link-up between London, New York, Los Angeles and Rio de Janeiro.
And it shows the film to be a rather different creature from the Sam Raimi franchise (this version is helmed by the appropriately named Marc Webb).
There’s a more authentically wise-cracking Spidey, a tweaked origins story, and a new love interest for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) in the form of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).
Our arch villain in this opening instalment is The Lizard, aka Dr Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), and there are a lot more acrobatics and kick-ass action from your otherwise friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man…
The Amazing Spider-Man is released in the UK on 4 July this year.
