Sony Pictures has just released the first preview clip from director Marc Webb's Spider-Man franchise reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man, via the viral web-site MarkoftheSpider-Man.com, which first went live earlier this month to promote the international fan event that included a preview of the new trailer and a live simulcast Q&A with Webb and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Rhys Ifans. The preview clip doesn't include any spider-enhanced action or regenerating lizard arms, but it does serve as a nice character study illustrating how Garfield plans to bring Peter Parker to life on the big screen.
The Amazing Spider-Man is based on the classic Marvel Comics character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko that first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15 in August 1962. The screenplay was written by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent. Rhys Ifans, Emma Stone, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, C. Thomas Howell, Chris Zylka, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field also star.
