The Amazing Spiderman
New promo for web-slinging reboot has our heads turned.
It’s fair to say that we’ve been a little cautious about The Amazing Spider-Man, the upcoming reboot of the Marvel character which had already spawned a big-budget trilogy last decade. Everything we’d seen so far had frankly looked a little dull, with the dreaded tendency towards going “dark” that is so in vogue these days.
Thankfully, this new promo for the film (head to Apple for the HD) has us a lot more interested – Andrew Garfield looks an excellent fit for Peter Parker, while Emma Stone is always popular and Rhys Ifans seems to be having fun as Curt Connors/ The Lizard. Director Marc Webb looks to have woven a decent story, even if the whole thing does look a little CGI-happy. There are a couple of exciting action beats in here, as well as some nice exchanges between the leads. Garfield also gets to crack wise a little, giving us hope that this incarnation might well have fun on the agenda.
