We reported last month that Sony is bringing the highly-anticipated reboot The Amazing Spider-Man to Comic-Con 2011. We have received a description of the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man, which will be shown at the San Diego event next week.
Now, if you want to be surprised and watch the first trailer without any description whatsoever, then stop reading now. However, if you want a little taste of what to expect next week, then keep on reading.
- "Trailer opens with Peter Parker [Andrew Garfield] being beaten by bullies, one of which is played by Chris Zylka.
Shots of Dr.Connors [Rhys Ifans] being injected by a greenish fluid in a lab.
Shot of Parker being bitten by a spider,in his own house in what appears to be an attic lab.
Shots of Gwen Stacy's face, Uncle Ben's face and Aunt May's face.
Shot of an alley with Ben [Martin Sheen] and Parker, then one of a dying Ben who utters 'With Greatest power must come greatest responsibility, never forget that.'
Shot of Parker putting on the costume, camera angle from his back. He turns and is now atop The Empire State Building.
Goes black for a few seconds, we hear some monstrous sounds and cut to Connors' lab where his foot transforms into a scaly one. Goes black and we hear roars.
Then we see a giant web with the title The Amazing Spider-Man. Coming Next Summer in 3d and Imax."
The scooper who sent in this information appears to be a Comic-Con employee who got an early look at the footage. Nothing is confirmed at this time, but we'll find out in a week or so if this description is accurate. Be sure to check back next week for our complete coverage from the San Diego Comic-Con 2011 convention floor.
