The first full trailer for "The Amazing Spider-Man," the reboot of the comic-book movie franchise that hits theaters July 3, has been released and savored by Spidey fans everywhere.
That's Andrew Garfield, who played Mark Zuckerberg's pal-turned-foe in "The Social Network," replacing Tobey Maguire. So far, we like the casting choice -- Garfield has a bit of that teen angst in his voice despite being 28, and he's nerdy enough that it's believable when he gets slammed around by the school jocks.
Emma Stone's normally a redhead, but she's blonde for her role as Peter Parker's girlfriend. Remember, she's not playing redheaded Mary Jane Watson here -- she's Peter's earlier girlfriend, Gwen Stacy. No spoilers here, but fans of the comics know what that means.
Rhys Ifans plays Dr. Chuck Connors, whom Peter knows as a friend of his late father, but he's also the film's villain, the creepy Lizard, and the trailer gives fans a quick look at the slimy green guy. Martin Sheen and Sally Field play Uncle Ben and Aunt May, Peter's
The trailer also gives us two fairly funny lines -- Peter saying "You seriously think I'm a cop in a skin-tight red and blue suit?" to a car thief, and Gwen's father (played by Denis Leary), a police captain, saying "Thirty-eight of New York's finest vs. one guy in a unitard." Yep, that about covers it.
If you're seeing "Phantom Menace" in 3-D this weekend, you'll reportedly get the "Amazing Spider-Man" trailer in 3-D before the film. The 3-D trailer is also supposed to appear online Wednesday, for those of you who just happen to have a pair of those funny glasses sitting around. There's some amazing Spidey flipping in the trailer that should look great in the extra dimension.
Gotta say, this trailer looks pretty promising. With great power comes great impatience. July 3 is still five months away.
