Oh, right, there's also a new Spider-Man movie coming out this summer! I've seen a few scenes from this one and taken collectively I enjoy The Amazing Spider-Man much more than all three previous Spidey movies combined, and I will be surprised (not really) if you don't agree when the Marc Webb film is released next month. Certainly, from what we've seen in this clip and elsewhere, the action and characterizations are much more on point than in the gloomy trilogy directed by Sam Raimi. However, if you thought Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield would make it through the entire motion picture without affecting a New York accent and saying, "I'm swingin' here! I'm swingin' here!" then you are very, very wrong.


Based on the classic Marvel Comics superhero created by Steve Ditko and Stan Lee, The Amazing Spider-Man is a reboot of Sony Pictures' lucrative film franchise. The movie also stars Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans as the Lizard and some other people as some other characters. It opens in the U.S. on July 3.
