What better way to celebrate the first game of the NBA finals than with a basketball-themed clip from The Amazing Spider-Man? This new clip shows Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker putting his new Spidey powers to good fun use by taunting Chris Zylka’s Flash Thompson on the basketball court. It’s a neat little scene that hopefully highlights some of the playfulness we’ll see from Garfield’s Parker in the finished film.
Hit the jump to watch the clip. The film also stars Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field and Denis Leary. The Amazing Spider-Man opens in 3D on July 3rd. Oh, and Thunder Up.

One of the world’s most popular characters is back on the big screen as a new chapter in the Spider-Man legacy is revealed in The Amazing Spider-Man.

The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.

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.
