Director Marc Webb insists it’s no remake of Sam Raimi’s original, and we agree
Spider-Man is making his way back to the big screen, and boy does he have some angst.
At least, that’s what this darker version of the wall-crawling superhero seems to suffer from in The Amazing Spider-Man, according to its first trailer.
And this is no half-assed, show you a glimpse of the movie teaser. It’s a full-blown, 2+ minute showcase of the new version of Spidey.
Director Marc Webb, who shot some portions of the movie not far from my day job, insists this isn’t a remake. And right off the bat this trailer makes it pretty clear it’s not. This is a new story, with new actors, and is clearly its own interpretation of Spider-Man.
The look seems to be more gritty, with Spider-Man showing off some different kinds of moves than we saw in Sam Raimi’s interpretation.
Personally, I think it looks good. How about you?
The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters July 3rd.
