Amazing Spider-Man Preview: Put on the Mask!

Amazing Spider-Man preview

The new four-minute preview from The Amazing Spider-Man promises an extended look at "the summer's most anticipated film" — Sony's bracing, ballsy rebuke to The Avengers, Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises. Only you know how truthfully that claim applies to you, but this much is true: There's not very much "new" here.

Basically we've got the last trailer with some big-time action stitched to the front. New York is in peril! My kid's hanging over the East River! Somebody do something! Who are you? Cue Marc Webb's origin-story reboot, which restates all of the brooding identity issues of Christopher Nolan's Batman saga with none of the pitch-black conceptual grandstanding. This looks, feels and sounds like a comic-book movie all the way, all doe eyes and iridescent urban grids and quasi-human forms tear-assing around the sky.

July 3! Mark your calendars! (?)

    The rehashing of the origin was not necessary. Other things are troubling but probably wouldn't concern non-Spidey fans. However, the fact that he has his mask off throughout the trailer is irritating to say the least. I do not know why superhero movies constantly have their heroes maskless while in costume. There are plenty of scenes where they are not in the costume at all. I have no problem with that, but when they have the hero in costume, out in public sans mask, it does not ring true to the stories or the characters at all. The secret identity is a very important aspect of Spider-Man. Why is it so difficult for these filmmakers to realize that?
