Sony officially released the first teaser-trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man.
Here it is, folks!
I’m a huge fan of Sam Raimi‘s original great series of films, and Spider-Man 2 remains very high on my list of greatest comic book superhero films ever produced. So I was sad to see that series end abruptly without a chance to bring everything to a formal close.
That said, though, I’ve watched through the production, and my faith in the filmmakers and their loyalty to the source material and to fans is unquestionable at this point. They did a lot of stunts and web-slinging in real life instead of all CGI, they’re bringing back much more of the science-geek angle with Peter building his own web-shooters, and the casting is perfect, across the board.
Now, with this trailer, I’m hooked. I LOVE that end shot! This film is aptly named, because that trailer does look amazing.
The Amazing Spider-Man releases July 3, 2012. Next summer is packed full of greatness for comic book fans, and it can’t get here soon enough.
