Amazing Spider-Man

Just in time for the release of The Avengers across the country tonight at midnight comes the third and final trailer for Sony Pictures’ The Amazing Spider-Man.

You can watch it here below.

I must say, I really like this trailer. Obviously not everyone is going to be as impressed as I am, but history has taught us that if you try to please everyone you end up pleasing no one. After this trailer your mind will be made up. Personally I’m intrigued by the film’s story that explores the backstory of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and the mystery of what happened to his parents (Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz). I love how the filmmakers have embraced the science geek side of Peter, as well as his wiseass nature when he takes to the streets and skies of New York City to fight crime; the Sam Raimi trilogy seemed to mostly gloss over those aspects of the character. The police manhunt led by Captain Stacy (Denis Leary), the father of Peter’s girlfriend Gwen (Emma Stone), also plays an important role in the film.

The cast for Sony Pictures and Columbia Pictures’ new Spider-Man reboot just keeps on growing and growing, but with most of the major cast spoken for, it’s time to fill in the blanks.

It’s being reported that four new actors have been cast in the movie, including Campbell Scott (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Damages), Julianne Nicholson (Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Kinsey), Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire, New York, I Love You), and Annie Parisse (Law & Order, National Treasure).

This particular group of castings has Spider-Man fans scratching their heads a bit, wondering if they might spell disaster or if they’re the slight twist this reboot might need. Scott and Nicholson will be playing the mother and father of Peter Parker, Richard and Mary, who are characters only mentioned a few times in comic book lore. In the comics, they were both special agents and recruited by Nick Fury, keeping them away often and their son in the care of Richard’s brother Ben and his wife, May. While investigating the third Red Skull, a hired assassin sabotaged the plane they were traveling on, though this will likely be altered for the movie.
