For his next big screen adventure, Spider-Man is going back to the beginning. Well, sort of.
The first teaser trailer for the Marc Webb-directed film, "The Amazing Spider-Man" has hit the web, promising a bit of a change in origin story for the legendary webslinger. In the comics, and the Sam Raimi-directed, Tobey Maguire-starring films, Peter Parker is a nerdy weakling who gets endowed with incredible powers after being bitten by a radioactive spider during a class field trip to a science lab. In the new film, Andrew Garfield's Parker is no doubt weak, and he's bitten by a spider, it comes during a visit to see his crush, Emma Stone's Gwen Stacey, who is working at the lab.
The lab, by the way, is run by one Rhys Ifans, the man who will later become the villain, The Lizard.
Speaking about the trailer Tuesday night, Emma Stone said, "I've seen the trailer, which I believe comes out ahead of Captain America. I thought it was amazing... It's pretty cool, but maybe I'm a little biased. We'll see how people respond to it."
The film hits theaters on July 3rd, 2012.
