We first brought you word that The Dark Knight Rises teaser poster and trailer were debuting this week and now that same source is telling us that the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man will hit theaters next week with select prints of Captain America: The First Avenger. We're hearing that the trailer is a full 2 minutes and 30 seconds long! We assume this is what Sony Pictures will be showing at the Comic-Con panel next Friday in addition to possibly more. As with the Batman teaser, we're not sure when it will come online, so stay tuned.
In related news, Entertainment Weekly has posted a better-quality version of the cover featuring Spidey in addition to the following quotes:
EW can also exclusively confirm that Rhys Ifans will be playing Doc Conners, who, in an experiment gone wrong, transforms into one of Spider-Man's most formidable foes ever, the Lizard.
Four years after Spider-Man 3, starring Tobey Maguire, The Amazing Spider-Man promises to be a "more contemporary," "more gritty," and "more character-driven" look at the comic book hero. He's a hero the 27-year-old Garfield knows well. Growing up, "I related to Peter Parker [Spidey's alter ego] so much because I felt like someone else inside," he says. "I loved the comic books and the animated TV series and I even dressed up as Spider-Man as a kid."
Adds Webb: "Ultimately what this movie is about is a kid who grows up looking for his father and finds himself. And that's a Spider-Man story we haven't seen before."
