There’s a new trailer out for The Amazing Spider-Man (which opens July 3) that clocks in at a hefty 4:03, and it contains a nice new scene of Spidey not only being a hero, but a good guy.
Most of the rest of the clip looks to be familiar material, but with some nice new additions. It’s certainly worth watching. Looks to me like this version of the Spider-Man tale will put a lot of emphasis on the relationship between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), with a lot less angst than we saw between Peter (Tobey Maguire) and Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) in the previous three modern movies. I think new director Marc Web – who made the Zooey Deschanel vehicle (500) Days of Summer, is just the guy to pull off the relationship material. The question is, can he do action? Based on this clip, I’m gonna say Yes. In fact, it looks like action with heart!
