The First Trailer for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ is Officially Online

Yeah, I kind of hate this trailer.  I knew from the beginning that Sony was going to screw up this marketing, but I kept my hopes up.  But no, my former suspicions seem to be correct.  Realizing that Twilight and I Am Number 4 are all the rage and “hip”, Sony is trying to sell this film as an “edgy” Spider-Man.  Is it really like that, or is Sony just spinning the trailer so it appears that way?  I don’t know, but I hope I found out soon enough when the film is presented this Friday at Comic Con.  Let’s just hope we can get that first person, Mirror’s Edge-esque crap out the window.  It looks…just terrible.

The trailer:

While there’s no official plot synopsis for this film yet but, judging from this trailer, Edward Cullen gets bit by a radioactive spider and becomes a Spid-pire, meets the chick from Easy A, and plays Mirrors Edge for a while.  Oh, don’t miss the red pipe!  Aw…he did.
The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters July 3, 2012.
