Four minute preview of The Amazing Spider-Man

Trailer Simon Brew

Take a long look at the incoming The Amazing Spider-Man, courtesy of this extended promo...

In a summer where the plan seems to be for studios to show lots of their movies off well in advance, we're being genuinely careful about what we post, lest we end up stuffing the site with a ton of stuff that risks spoiling the movie at the end of it all (here's an anagram of the name of the film that's aimed at: Promethesu).

So we were a little in two minds about a four minute promo for the increasingly interesting-looking The Amazing Spider-Man. But then we figured we're all grown-ups here. And, more tellingly, we couldn't resist watching it ourselves. Ahem.

 Here, then, is a four minute preview of the return of the webslinger. The Amazing Spider-Man is due in cinemas on 3rd July...

Looks good but now I wish I hadn't watched it.

I am really looking forward to this film but I wont be watching that "extended promo" again. Kinda put me off a small bit. Makes it look a small bit dull. Still looking forward to it though. I really liked 500 Days of Summer (I know) so I kinda have faith in Mark Webb. 

Part of me thinks it's too soon, superhero origin stories are kind of boring, and I won't enjoy it. 

But then... it's Spider-man? And there's still something awesome about watching Spider-man webslinging about all over the place. So... I'm going to end up seeing it, aren't I?

I know it's the job of sites like DOG to put this out there when its mad available but I've stopped watching these things too in order to stay fresh for the movie.

I'm a shoo-in for these kind of movies anyway so the only marketing I need to read is the day of release!

Looking good... I wasn't sure about a reboot so soon, but it's Spider-man -- how can they possibly muck it up? Perhaps if this is successful, we'll see an appearance from ol' Spidey in The Avengers 2...

Andrew Garfield is exactly what I've always wanted in a Spiderman movie but have never been able to articulate. Inspired casting.

I, for one, am looking forward to this, but I think it's a bit of an exaggeration on the marketing team's behalf to call this 'the most anticipated movie of the summer'...

WTF!!! He took his mask of within around 10 seconds of that preview.

Spiderman keeps his friggin mask on, these films do not seem to be able to cope with that. I turned the preview off at that point. How many times in the trailers has he been seen maskless.
Compare this to the comics, you rarely see Spiderman maskless,

What is wrong with these people, Spiderman is Spiderman, we don't need to be reminded he's peter parker all the time. This is / has ruined these films for me.

Am I being sad???

Great new layout for DOG,
Loved the 4 minutes for The Amazing Spiderman..can't wait to see it..hope the 3D IS GOOD THOUGH.

I wish C Thomas Howell was my Dad! Agreed on the mask off business. 'Oh, you've found my weakness...small knives!' May get to like it.

i think sony/marvel have a hard sell with this one, especially since the last trilogy wasnt all that long ago and was pretty pants ( IMO, yadda yadda yadda )..but i reckon that since they are going on about his parents a fair bit in the footage thats out, maybe they are also going to mention they were shield agents, and therefore link it to avengers 2 somehow? that would be cool :)

I'm really just not that excited about this movie 

Sooooo done with 3D.

No more murky vision. Just clean, crisp BRIGHT 2D from here on out.

I have to comment. There's one thing, above all the others, that will prevent me from watching this film. Dennis Leary.

Okay, so when you see spiderman in this 4 min feature you see him with his mask on for about 10 seconds.  The rest of the time he isn't wearing it at all, so one has to ask why did he bother making it in the first place?  Oh wait thats right! To hide his identity so the bad guys didn't hunt down his loved ones.......maybe this incarnation of spiderman couldn't care less about his family being a hip teenage skater boy with an attitude problem.

The more I see of this, the more I want to watch it. As others have said who would not want to see spidey on the big screen again!

Not likely with Sony having the rights.

Wasn't The Avengers based in New York, or some of it (haven't watched it yet :( ) so Spidey should have been there! No...

I'm starting to this think this too actually. I'm hoping it only seems like a lot in these previews. The viewer doesn't keep needing to be reminded that "That Guy from The Social Network" is playing Peter Parker.

Geeks are so hard to please. I would prefer to see most of the masked scenes in the actual movie. Seems pointless to show that much footage as just Peter, but that's the idea of trailers...to create an interest without giving too much away. I'm positive the movie will contain all the nerd money shots.

I loved Spidey since I was five years old; I'll be seeing this in the theater.

The problem is, they are obviously showing scenes from either the end or the later second half as done with Avengers.  But for the vast majority of the time you see him running around in his Spidey suit without his mask, it just annoys me as a fan thats all.  Not to mention the effort put into the design only to have a director (or actor) who spends more time not using it than using it.  Plus it's as much part of who Parker is as anything else, caring that much about his family that he doesn't want to put them at Risk.  Like I said in a previous post on another spidey trailer just have a look at the Civil War series and you'll see what I mean.  The whole thing kicks off with Stark Convincing Parker to reveal who he is as he believes if he can get Spiderman to do it the rest will follow because Stark believes he has the most to lose by showing the world who he is.
