It’s been a busy week for comic book adaptations, with the unveiling of teaser trailers for both ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and upcoming Marvel ensemble epic ‘The Avengers’. Now Sony Pictures have joined the spandex party with the release of the first trailer for its superhero franchise reboot ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, web-slinging its way into UK cinemas July 3 2012. Directed by Marc Webb (‘500 Days of Summer’), the film heads back to the Spidey/Peter Parker origin story, with ‘The Social Network’s’ Andrew Garfield filling Tobey Maquire’s red and blue boots. Garfield is joined by Emma Stone as love interest Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as Doc Connors (and, potentially, scaly supervillain The Lizard). Despite some dubious CGI, we’re confident that Webb and Garfield will be able to realise a more emotive interpretation of the Spider-Man saga.
