The spotlight in the Marvel universe is shining brightly on The Avengers, with only a couple more weeks until the film’s release. But that doesn’t mean that the other big Marvel superhero film coming out this summer has been completely forgotten.
A new Japanese trailer for Sony Pictures’ The Amazing Spider-Man has hit the web, showing some new footage and a couple great fight scenes.
At WonderCon in March, The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Webb, and asked him how much of an influence Sam Raimi’s trilogy about the web-slinger had on his own version, which opens in theaters in July.
“It’s a totally independent universe, and we make different assumptions about certain parts of the character without subverting the iconography of Spider-Man,” he told THR. “There are certain obligations we have — like he wears a suit and he gets bitten by a spider — but the context surrounding that is new and different and set off by an event that happens years before. And it’s a new story in that sense.”
