While I enjoyed Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, they were rather saccharine. Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man seems almost as dark and moody as Christopher Nolan’s Batman films.
Judging by the trailer it looks like Marc Webb is starting afresh, with Peter Parker being bitten by the “radioactive” spider and discovering his powers… Despite yet another reboot of a recent franchise, I’m actually excited by this darker version.
The Amazing Spider-Man is set for release 3rd July 2012 and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, and Irrfan Khan. The film is directed by Marc Webb.
