The Amazing Spider-Man teaser trailer released

Here’s the first look at next year’s re-telling of the famous web-slinger’s story. It seems that this new film,  directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield, focuses on Peter Parker’s early life before living with his aunt and uncle (Sally Field and Martin Sheen) as well as his transformation into Spider-Man.

The female interest isn’t a red-headed Mary Jane Watson, but the blonde Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) who he actually met first in the original comics as opposed to after Mary Jane in Sam Raimi’s versions. There is a small reveal of the shady Dr Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) who will become The Lizard. The big reveal is the final shot, which is a shot from Spidey’s P.O.V. as he jumps across rooftops which ends with him landing on a glass building showing off the new suit, even if it is just for a second…and it looks very similar to the last one.

When it is released next year it will be ten years since the last trilogy started and only four years since Spider-Man 3, so you would think that to warrant a re-start now would mean a completely different plot. But from the looks of this trailer the new film will be covering very similar ground, albeit with a slightly darker feel to it. We’re just going to have to wait for the next trailer to see how different this re-telling is. If at all.
