A teaser poster for Sony’s summer 2012 potential blockbuster The Amazing Spider-Man surfaced this weekend and, while it’s got nothing on new The Dark Knight Rises Bane-centric one-sheet, it isn’t bad. Still trying to sell the darker, more emo, nature of the Spidey reboot in comparison to the Raimi trilogy from the teaser trailer, at least they’ve made an interesting image. Focusing on Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker, the poster definitely captures the “wall-crawler” aspect of his alter ego while totally abandoning the high-flying adventurous spirit of his filmic predecessor. They really want us to take this thing seriously. Check it:

It all looks good, I’m sure wondering if this movie has any room for one of the comic book Spider-Man’s most apparent and effective traits, a sense of humor. Ah, well, at least the concept art for the Lizard (to be portrayed in human form by Rhys Ifans) looks good. Though, it does make me wonder why they Daffy Ducked his lab coat and ripped slacks ensemble…
These set photos of an “adrenaline-cranked” scene from the movie aren’t very inspiring, but that they definitely capture the excitement of big budget movie making:

But, hey, at least Emma Stone is still in this!
Rob Payne also writes the indie comic The Unstoppable Force, tweets on the Twitter @RobOfWar, and his ware can be purchased here. He still thinks Emma Stone should have been saved for Mary Jane in the sequel, no matter how good her Gwen Stacy might end up being.
