New Spider-Man Trailer

Gotta say this summer is shaping up to be an amazing year for Super-Hero movies – The Dark Night, Avengers, Chronicle, and now what I believe will be the “sleeper” – The Amazing Spider-Man.  I originally was completely against the idea of a reboot and telling the origin story yet again. But frankly I hated the Raimi original, loved the sequel and thought the 3rd movie got unfairly trashed.  Raimi made the Spider-Man world too glossy and I always hated the CGI Web Slinging it took me out of the movie.  Here it looks a lot more realistic and I like the design of the new costume.  The one thing I hate in this trailer is once again Spider-Man gets his mask taken off. What’s the point of having a secret identity if your mask keeps getting ripped off. He needs to talk to Ray Mysterio, Jr. about tricks to keeping that thing on.  Here’s the new trailer.
