By Josh Wilding - 5/8/2012
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

@strugler - I guess they're just trying to emphasize the fact that it's not Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man anymore.
HavocPrime - 5/8/2012, 4:24 AM
Wouldn't mind one spider-man film where he keeps the mask on as spidey, and that it doesn't get ripped in half the way Raimi liked
Ashes2Phoenix - 5/8/2012, 4:33 AM
@DoubleD: Are you bald or a hair dresser ? You are obsessed with Garfield's hair.
Fenlion - 5/8/2012, 4:53 AM
These pix are really boring. Looking forward to the movie though.
AmazingWebHead - 5/8/2012, 4:56 AM
he will wear a mask in the movie! they like to show the actor's face when promoting a movie! they did the same thing with robert downey jr. for avengers. Don't hate on a movie based of pictures. give it a chance and wait til july 3rd...then judge lol

i'm disappointed at the lack of bacon in Grif's spider-man poll.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 5/8/2012, 5:00 AM
So you've seen the movie DoubleD. You know that is his origin in this movie?
HarveyDent88 - 5/8/2012, 5:06 AM
Emma stone looks bangin there!
RipperSavage - 5/8/2012, 6:29 AM
More photos, still no great scene has been released. And these pics are mediocre. Fishing line. Wow. They couldnt make some fake spider-web?
A bad movie of this type, needs a big opening weekend to recoup some of the budget. Because the 2nd week dropoff could be staggering, when reviews and word of mouth say the movie is bad.
It's obvious they do not have any scenes to release that would help the movie, only hurt it.
We will continue to see more photos and hear talk about a sequel. We will not see great scenes or hear of great reviews.
The movie will come out, just as the bad reviews hit. Sony may not allow critics the chance for early reviews.

RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 5/8/2012, 6:35 AM
This movie is going to be really good.
FireKnightRises - 5/8/2012, 6:37 AM
should be called THE AMAZING GIRAFFE-MAN
Ashes2Phoenix - 5/8/2012, 6:41 AM
@bgg1175: Did you see the new trailer ? There looked like there were plenty of great scenes in there. Stop attention seeking you muling quim !
FireKnightRises - 5/8/2012, 6:42 AM
suck if they change his origin and make him mutant

for me its not like marvel spiderman anymore, different suit, different origins, emo parker, its SONY spiderman
devildrive - 5/8/2012, 6:45 AM
I hate Tobey's Spidey. Short buffed guy (and fat at the 3rd one). The only thing I like is when the CGI Spidey fight Doc Oc. I still hope this one refresh that awful Raimi's third part.
mrexcellent - 5/8/2012, 6:49 AM
bgg1175,

To be honest, I'm surprised at how confident you are in this movie not turning out so well. While the scenes that have been released are either edited poorly, or simply just strange choices, this last trailer seemed pretty solid. I'm not saying that you're wrong, but you're speaking so matter of factly. There are people who speak very matter of factly about how "good" this movie will be too, so I get the double standard, but work with me here.

The first trailer had people comparing it to Twilight and Batman. People accused it of trying to do both, and tore its ending POV shot to shreds (admittedly, I can see where people were coming from on all of those counts).

The second trailer dispelled the Twilight stuff for the most part, but some people held on to the Batman comparisons. I think the tone could've been better, as well as the editing. I appreciated the humor though.

Now with this final trailer we have a movie that appears to be its own thing, with satisfying webswinging and action beats. The story seems intriguing, and the movie seems to be on a grander scale than was initially portrayed. In my opinion it was an awesome trailer and it showed the movie in a light that I wasn't expecting. One that seems to be consistent with the positive things that Webb has been saying too.

So my question to you is, what's the problem here? Really? Is it the story, or the costume, or what? I don't think that Sony's failure to release better scenes says much of anything. We're still a little less than 2 months away, and again, that final trailer was a massive improvement.

spider-man has an alter ego who featured as much in the comics as spider-man,his name is peter parker,and his story is essential to spider-mans.

marvel72 - 5/8/2012, 9:07 AM
the film looks amazing,i just hope the changes they've made doesn't spoil the film for me.
Wildaniel - 5/8/2012, 9:24 AM
This movie is gonna be good. I love how Emma Stone looks just like Gwen Stacy from the comics.
KNIGHT3000 - 5/8/2012, 10:14 AM
seriously... none of this is helping anymore...
MovieTheaterLad - 5/8/2012, 10:14 AM
@Wildaniel

I disagree on the comics part, but she DOES look like Gwen from Spectacular Spider-Man.
RipperSavage - 5/8/2012, 10:50 AM
@Ashes2Phoenix I'm talking about scenes not 2 second clips or shots of CGI Spidey.
@mrexcellent The few lackluster scenes they have released, are very poor. The strange Doorman scene was a hint of a problem. A film studio puts out the best stuff they can, to promote a movie. Other clips such as Spidey mouthing off in a car and the knife scene are bad. The casting is off.
The costume looks horrible. Its like something Japanese film makers would design.
Rhys Ifans looks like he belongs in a Max at night softcore porno.
All of the dialog seems amateurish. Webb has no real experience directing dialog.
So all those things and more point to a problem. Then word leaks that Sony isnt happy.
When Disney promoted Avengers, you could see something great coming, not from pics or interviews, but the scenes they released were full of quality and were extremely entertaining.
When Sony strains to find entire scenes to release that would promote the film, it says something. When the scenes they have released all lack entertainment value, it says something.
The casting, the costume, the altered origin, and the few lengthy scenes theyve released look bad. So what does that say?
Maia87 - 5/8/2012, 10:56 AM
@bgg1175 ^

You haven't seen the movie yet so STFU.
RipperSavage - 5/8/2012, 11:36 AM
@Maia87 No one had seen Avengers a month ago but could see its greatness. You may not be able to comprehend the fact that bad scenes indicate bad movie. Im sure you will like it however, even if it is bad. You will be blown away by it. You may not understand much of it, but youll like it.
jazzman - 5/8/2012, 11:41 AM
nice posters
SpiderFan35 - 5/8/2012, 11:46 AM
@DarkKnightRises: Welcome time-traveller, thank you for bringing us jokes from the distant past.

I do find it strange that Spidey would take off his mask in the actual movie, so I assume there will be good reason for it if it happens. Promo pics have to market the actor and Spidey so lack of mask in these is a pointless criticism.

HughJasol - 5/8/2012, 11:52 AM
I wouldn't mind covering Emma with my spider web! Heyyyoooo!
AmazingWebHead - 5/8/2012, 11:52 AM
thank you @SpiderFan35. that's the point i tried to make earlier. It's just marketing. Iron man's promo pics he never had the mask covering his face because they wanted to promote the movie with his face! robert downey jr. as iron man for the avengers and the posters and promo pics have no affect on the movie. so everyone relax and just wait til july 3rd.....I'm sure you will be AMAZED!
AutobotCommander84 - 5/8/2012, 11:58 AM
@bgg1175 I doubt you've even seen a costume from Japanese film. And you're really saying that based on some dude who has "inside sources" when in fact, he could be wrong.
RipperSavage - 5/8/2012, 12:13 PM
@AutobotCommander84 Take a look at the Japanese Spider Man costume!
Ashes2Phoenix - 5/8/2012, 1:52 PM
@bgg1175: Avengers didn't amp up it's marketing until the month before it was released. By your logic The Dark Knight Rises will be terrible because they have yet to show a clip. The clip, specifically the car thief one, is significantly different in the new trailer and people love it. That is the most talked about sequence in the trailer.

Trust me during this month and next we will start to see some quality scenes from this film emerge, once the marketing campaign kicks up a notch before the release. There was no way to judge greatness by The Avengers. Specifically the trailer. It just seemed like a pretty film, with nice explosions.

Also I would just like to add I was in the cinema waiting to watch The Avengers in 3D. Before this the new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man played in 3D and it was truly incredible. It is by far the best 3D I have ever seen and I am not a big fan of 3D to be honest. That wasn't the best bit. The best bit is when the audience clapped and applauded the new trailer. I have never seen people react to a trailer like that before. So they must be doing something right.
DoomXfactor - 5/8/2012, 2:11 PM
A little bit of Fapping time? Why yes thank you
GiantNerd - 5/8/2012, 2:44 PM
You [frick]ing nerds disgust me. :)
TheActionAce - 5/8/2012, 3:02 PM
damn still that hair reminds me of twilight, like what the hell

and still hate the suit but cant wait to see the Lizard in action, still want it to fail so Marvel gets the rights back but then I don't want it to

since it might mean an end to CBM's
ScabbyJ - 5/8/2012, 3:16 PM
What do you mean Webb has no experience directing dialogue? There wasn't a single a action scene in 500 Days of Summer, and that movie was great.
Ashes2Phoenix - 5/8/2012, 3:34 PM
Fantastic point ^^^^
mrexcellent - 5/8/2012, 6:00 PM
@bgg1175: I disagree about the dialogue seeming amateurish. I don’t think we can do much to reconcile that. While what you said about a studio putting the best out to promote their product is true sometimes, this isn’t always the case when you throw timing into the equation. At the time that clip debuted on its grand stage (a granola bar box), Sony probably didn’t have very much else to put out because they were still laboring away at the CGI effects. Notice how the second trailer didn’t show Spider-man doing much that they couldn’t have set up with the wire rigs? It’s because they went with what they had, and with what was ready at that time (because really, how much time is it going to take to digitally erase the wires compared to the amount of time it’s going to take to fully construct a scene from the ground up?). Then there was only a second or two of Lizard. They just, weren’t done, so they put out something insignificant. Plain and simple. It got people talking, that’s all that mattered in the business sense.

As for the other scenes, I highly doubt that those scenes are representative of what’s going to be in the movie. Back when the clips were posted, many of us had a discussion where we pointed out exactly where you could see that they’d been clipped and cut short. For whatever reason, Sony doesn’t want to release the scene in full. Given that context, I don’t think the scene was that bad.
mrexcellent - 5/8/2012, 7:03 PM
EDIT: The doorman clip was not one of the three clips that was released with the granola bar promo. And it might not have been a granola bar promo, it was just Kellogs thing or some other big multi grain business giant. My point still stands though. The doorman clip was released a little earlier than the other three clips, I believe.
