New trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man: watch now

The Amazing Spider-Man has released a new full-length trailer, featuring a wisecracking Spidey, a scowling Peter Parker and a Lizard that looks as though he could give the Hulk a run for his money.

Director Marc Webb has stressed the importance of Peter's lost parents to his particular story, and judging by this latest trailer, he wasn't kidding. "The one thing that has haunted me my entire life," says Parker, grimly, "is finding the truth about my parents."

Teenage angst aside, the new trailer doesn't skimp on action, with the Lizard (spotted once again in that signature medical coat we referred to yesterday) causing out and out carnage in New York City. Looks as though Spider-Man's going to have his hands full with this guy.

Take a look at the new trailer below…

We've still yet to see a proper, stationary glimpse of the Lizard in all his glory, but we can understand why Sony want to hold something back for the final release. That said, he does look like a pleasingly physical enemy, and one who should help sell the new Spider-Man as a high-school kid just coming to terms with his powers.

On a similar note, Garfield's wisecracking could just be the film's trump card - a return to the mischievous sense of humour of the comic-book Spidey after Tobey Maguire's distinctly straight-laced incarnation.

The Amazing Spider-Man opens in the UK on 4 July 2012.
