New 'Amazing Spider-Man' Trailer: More Action, Moping, Skateboarding, Mommy/Daddy Issues

May 4, 2012


Now that the nerd fervor has calmed somewhat over the latest Dark Knight Rises trailer, Sony wants to remind you they, too, have a costumed fellow who is quite sad about mommy and daddy going away. In this latest trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, our new Peter Parker does not waste much time getting to that point, either, opening with a monologue explaining that, man, being a Spidermin is rough, you guys--but not as rough as not knowing what the deal is with your parents! The rest of the film seems to follow what kind of web-swinging heroics and rad skateboarding tricks it will take for Parker to find the truth, and how that ties into a man becoming New York's first reptile bio-terrorist. NEVER FORGET when a man turned himself into a lizard and spread cartoon fart around Midtown. And judging by Sally Field's strained advice, it sounds like the new "with great power comes great responsibility" is the lesson that "secrets have a cost." It probably turns out Spider-Man's parents just left to be weirdo swingers, and now he's going to have to think about their gross orgies that occasionally involved one-armed men in lab coats. Some parental sock drawers are better left unopened, Pete. That's probably one of Martin Sheen's lines.
