The Amazing Spider-Man
has released a new international trailer, containing a good amount of previously unseen footage, including a few more glimpses of Rhys Ifans’ villain, the Lizard.
The new trailer supports director Marc Webb’s assertion that the story will home in on the loss of Peter Parker’s parents, with Andrew Garfield brooding over his departed relatives as he finds himself drawn to Dr. Curt Connors.
There’s also a first look at Sally Field as Aunt May, whilst the transformation of Connors into his reptilian alter-ego is also given a little more attention.
You can check out the new trailer below (apologies for the quality – an HD version has yet to make its way online)…
We’re glad to see Marvel giving Spidey some love, despite the obvious focus on the release of The Avengers later this month. It’s also becoming clear that Webb hasn’t been tampering with the backstory on a whim, with the loss of Peter’s parents clearly serving as the driving force of the film’s narrative.
The Amazing Spider-Man opens in the UK on 4 July 2012.
