We’re pretty sure the release of the brand-new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man has nothing at all to do with the fact that The Avengers is in theaters today, getting summer movie season off to a running start. It was almost certainly released because the folks at Marvel realized that Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are getting their butts whipped in our Summer Movie Preview Heroes and Heroines polls. These things matter, people. Well, they certainly matter to the Taylor Kitsch and Colin Farrell fans who have been voting nonstop since Tuesday.
All kidding aside, this new trailer does a long way toward making us stop thinking of The Amazing Spider-Man as its own story, not just “that movie that isn’t the Sam Raimi/Tobey Maguire Spider-Man.” It has a fair share of action sequences, but the majority of the dialogue is about Peter Parker’s quest to find out more about what happened to his parents. We dare you to count how many times they say “Peter” in less that 2 and a half minutes. And just like in the last trailer, it makes abundantly clear why Andrew and Emma hooked up on the set. We can feel the sexual tension from our desks. So now, after watching this, do you want to head over to the poll and give that lovely Brit a few more clicks?
