New Amazing Spider-Man Trailer Has More Lizard

Up until now I’ve been pretty ho-hum regarding this summer’s Spidey reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield as the wall-crawler. Sorry, but Hollywood’s been on costumed freak overload for the last decade, and quite honestly, what the hell new is there to say about Peter Parker’s metamorphosis?

Well, it’s fairly obvious from the latest trailer that the story is taking a page from Batman by dipping into the “dead parents” pool, which is a different angle than we’re accustomed to seeing in webslinger tales (at least on the big screen). I’m not sure if this new wrinkle is enough to make me want to see the movie, but it does offer hope that it will be different from the Sam Raimi/Tobey Maguire incarnations. Plus, the Lizard looks pretty badass. Plus, Emma Stone is a blonde. Okay, maybe I will check it out on July 3rd.
