With its midnight debut, sarcastic humor and stellar pacing is the news that comes out of The Amazing Spider-Man second trailer premiere. In the hands of Andrew Garfield, Spider-Man circa 2012 is one who has a knack for the silly. Movie Fanatic was treated to a The Amazing Spider-Man event February 6 and after witnessing the film’s latest trailer, coupled with the extended footage we saw, one major notion rises to the top. That is: Director Mark Webb has done fans of the series a great justice with the reboot of the franchise.
Given the footage we’ve seen, and the trailer above, the director has crafted a Spider-Man world that is unrivaled. Our first glimpses of The Lizard (Rhys Ifans) and his alter ego Dr. Curt Connors are briefly in the trailer. Yet, we have to tell our readers that the sizzle reel that we witnessed contains an extended sequence with Ifans that has us fawning over the prospect of an origins story with what could be the series’ best villain.
The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters July 3.
