Sony has released the first clip for The Amazing Spider-Man and it shows Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) squaring off against one of his toughest opponents. Note that I said Peter Parker and not Spider-Man, because you won’t see any CG sewer battles against the Lizard (Rhys Ifans) or high-flying web-slinging through the streets of New York. Instead of thrills, the clip tries to highlight the levity of Marc Webb’s (500 Days of Summer) version of Peter Parker/Spider-Man while at the same time paying homage to the Sam Raimi vision. The Amazing Spider-Man swings into theaters on July 3rd. Hit the jump to see if the clip strikes the right chord.

Here’s the first clip from The Amazing Spider-Man (via the movie’s viral site):

So “Peter Parker vs the Doorman” might not be the most thrilling set piece in all of The Amazing Spider-Man but it does spotlight Parker’s character differences from that of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). Also, if you watch the trailer, Parker does say that Stacy has an “intimidating doorman” so we can assume this scene comes right before he scales the building to visit her. This doorman is no Bruce Campbell, however, who fans will remember as having cameos in each of the previous three Spider-Man movies. Here’s a short clip from Spider-Man 2 for comparison:

Here’s the official synopsis:

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
