Sony unveiled a new four minute preview of their upcoming Amazing Spider-Man. Although the second half plays out like a trailer, the first half offers what appears to be an edited down sequence of Spider-Man saving a boy whose life is threatened by the Lizard’s rampage.
The second half features some more Spidey action as well as bit more of a look at poor Dr. Connors’s transformation into the Lizard. I’m not sure that I am thrilled that this continues to hint that there is a connection between Peter Parker and Dr. Connors and how each gained their powers. Connecting a hero’s and villain’s origins has become more than just a bit of a cliche. Hopefully director Marc Webb is bringing something new and fresh to that particular trope.
