The first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man has gone online. I’m torn between “What was the point?” and “Sigh. This is what ‘gritty’ Spider-Man looks like.” First off: daddy-issues. How original. Second, there’s not a sense of joy in any of this trailer. I re-watched the trailer for Sam Raimi’s first film and while there’s certainly some melodrama and an emphasis on action, you also see that there’s a fun movie in there. I’m not getting that from this trailer. However, I am getting that director Marc Webb has probably played Mirror’s Edge.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Hopefully what I see at Comic-Con on Friday will be more encouraging. The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, and Rhys Ifans. The Amazing Spider-Man opens in 3D on July 3, 2012.
And if you missed it, we just posted the first official poster for The Amazing Spider-Man.
