New trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man

"If you want the truth Peter... come and get it"

Following yesterday’s sneak peek footage of The Amazing Spider-Man, a new trailer has now gone online showing off Pete and Gwen’s chemistry, web-slinging galore and a big, green monster…

The new trailer fleshes out the character of Peter Parker a little, touching on his daddy issues (Curt Connors, Ben Parker and to a lesser extent, Captain Stacy all appear to represent certain aspects of that missing father figure) and his burgeoning relationship with Gwen Stacy.

Check out the new trailer below…

Yesterday we told you that director Marc Webb was looking to play up Spidey’s humorous side, and from the wise-cracking antics on display here, it seems that’s exactly what he’s done. The exchange with the car thief is particularly chucklesome…

The action looks nice and meaty too, with the Lizard wreaking havoc across Manhattan on a scale that has buildings toppling left and right. And then there are the reliably thrilling skyscraper-swinging scenes, which never fail to get the adrenaline pumping.

Most exciting, however, is the sense that all the major roles are perfectly cast. Andrew Garfield strikes a good balance between cocky and troubled, Emma Stone looks a spiky love interest, and Rhys Ifans is given free rein to chew the scenery to pieces! It really feels like a good blend of ingredients.

The Amazing Spider-Man opens in the UK on 4 July 2012.

How do you think the film is shaping up? Excited, or underwhelmed? Tell us, below.

      Well, the teaser was pretty dreadful so this at least makes the movie look a lot better. Andrew Garfield looks insanely scrawny, perfect! Actually keen for it now.

      Another film I was worried about but think this looks great. Can see what Webb meant about it being darker, but it's not done needlessly and looks to be not too OTT

      This is really starting to shape up nicely now, liking this more and more. I hope the nay-sayers are won over and realise it's not too soon for a reboot, this already looks miles better than Spider-Man 3 ... just the same way Batman Begins managed to wash away the bad taste of Batman & Robin, I hope ASM will do the same for this franchise.

      awesome, looking really good now. looks as realistic it can be and reckon that capt stacey is going to be the main protagonist also. still not 100% sure about the lizard but the trailer suggests a reluctance from peters end to fight him. looking forward to it.

      @trist808 I'll admit I was one of the nay-sayers, think only a week or two ago I was on here saying how I couldn't get excited for it. My opinion has definately changed somewhat now, still not putting it over TDKR or Avengers but will now defo have it on my viewing list come July!

      We didn't see enough of The Lizard to really pass judgement to be fair and it once again shows that we don't care about the hero, it's always the villain. Sometimes I crave the old days when a trailer was simply a taster for the film, not something we (and I include me) analyse and dissect. As long as the final film is more Dark Knight than Batman & Robin, then none of us can complain :)

      Does look a lot better than I expected, but Dennis leary's comically oversized body armour's still in there. He looks like an angry Irish turtle :p

      Well, that's completely changed my expectations of this film. Garfield seems like he's got the whole cocky/quippy aspect of Spiderman's character down better than Maguire did. Starting to get more intrigued by this movie. Is this film going to be set in the same universe as the otehr Marvel films?

      Looks amazing. @ SiMan Sony still own Spiderman so its not in the same universe........ but looks like they have at least done him justice and hope they keep their noses out and let the director do his job

      It's just too soon for another origin tale. Emma Stone as a blonde Hi-Oh.

      Doesn't look too bad. And mechanical webslingers at last. A whole new opportunity to bring some suspense into the fights.

      Its the pizzin' fanboys that ruined Spiderman 3, their desperate need for Venom to be crowbarred into the sequel scuppered what could have been a decent film, even Raimi hated the idea. Yeah this looks OK, but Webbs attempt to 'Nolanise' a comic book movie are somewhat negated by the presence of a 6ft lizard man. On the fence.

      I still think that the inclusion of the symbiote in Spider-man 3 was a missed opportunity. They should have made the movie about the corruption of Spider-man by the symbiote (making HIM the villain) and had Sandman as the anti-hero helping to bring about Parker's redemption. The separation of the symbiote from Parker should have happened at the end of the film, with the creation of Venom as the final payoff, setting up Spider-Man 4 (Which could have been Spider-Man Vs Venom until Carnage is created and then Spider-man and Venom team up to take him out). Both of those ideas would have been better than Spider-man 3 and a dead franchise. Still, now it's been rebooted, hopefully they will not make the same mistakes as before. And who knows, if Sony and Marvel can strike a deal, maybe the Marvel Cinematic Universe could have a place for a friendly neighborhood talks in Hollywood after all...

      Hadouken - I am sorry but when you're thrown Venom as a villain how on gods earth do you screw up that up ? he's easily one of the coolest villains in the Marvel universe. And frankly the idea of Thomas Church's whiny Sandman having more screen time would have made the movie more awful.

Plus fact 1, it is too SSOOOONNNN for a spidey remake and both the teaser and new trailer of this film look c**p! wrap it up how you want, it was just easier to start over then make spidey 4........I await the Avengers and TDKR f**k spidey!
