Have A Look At The First Clip From THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN!

Nordling here.

I'm not going to judge an entire movie from 46 seconds, but didn't we already see this scene (or something like it) in SPIDER-MAN 2, except with Bruce Campbell?  It's a strange clip to release from the official viral site but here it is - Peter Parker. vs. annoying doorman:

I will say this - I like Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker.  He looks a little like how John Romita drew Parker in the 1980s, and he's been terrific in all the movies I've seen him in.  Still have no idea how this is going to turn out, but I'm confident in the casting for Peter.

Nordling, out.  Follow me on Twitter!

    Is this a new thing in New York? Doormen stand in the street with a lectern? Gives their arms a rest while they do their heavy reading on the job? Or give them a place to put their notes as they address the passers by?

    This is fine.

    by niven

    This scene is fine, not particularly humourous but i don't think it's supposed to be, If anything it shows the tone of the film will eschew any of the quirky campiness that the original will have. Where most of the "human" everyday scenes (that didn't involve any of the primaries) in the Raimi trilogy had to have some sort of comedy ingrained into it. This is a nice way of showing those scenes will have a more realistic grounded approach, i hope this doesn't take away from the wit of the character or the overall fun of the aesthetic of the film, but I'm liking the change so far. Bizarre choice in scene though.....

  • Feb. 18, 2012, 12:59 p.m. CST

    It's obviously the setup to the scene we saw...

    by vettebro

    In the trailer. Where Gwen is asking him why he came in through the fire escape. Parker mentions the door man in that scene. A shitty setup to be sure. That sucked.

  • As it is, it's just kind of awkward, this doorman isn't funny at all. But I guess seeing this does make that "your doorman is really intimidating" line from the trailer more amusing.

  • Feb. 18, 2012, 1:01 p.m. CST

    wow what an utterly boring scene

    by Philip Tolken

    i cant believe that it what they're teasing us with! That was so boring. I felt absolutely NO life from the acting. zzzzz.

  • Feb. 18, 2012, 1:04 p.m. CST

    What a mediocre clip to release, that scene is a throwaway.

    by Randy

    Seriously, that's just a generic scene, nothing special about it at all, just cliches to setup another scene. That's fine for the movie, but to release this clip to help advertise the movie is just FUCKING RETARDED! How about showing us something with Spider-Man?Or maybe Peter Parker actually doing something cool? NO!Let's show him talk to the doorman!

    by Bob

    ...from all the talkbackers. "Oh, it's the new Spiderman movie, watch me be so cool like everyone else here and pre-judge and bag all over it. Yay me!" Seriously, I will agree this scene is a bit odd, but it's still better than anything that was in SM3. Yes, that movie deserves every bit of vitrol spewed at it. RAimi and Co. were phoning it in on that one. Why anyone wanted them to do a fourth is beyond me. I don't see anyone complaining about no John Favreau for IM3. Oh right, because 2 was so half-assed.

Don't get the huge amount of hate for this reboot really.. when all's said and done we're getting another big-budget SPIDER-MAN movie, guys!! Maybe people are just spoilt these days..

  • Feb. 18, 2012, 2:30 p.m. CST

    Parker acted retarded?

    by KnowItAllFromCali

    That's bullshit. He acted like a normal person in a normal situation. And we know nothing about the setup to this scene. Gwen Stacy's a rich girl in a security conscious hotel...makes perfect sense that the doorman's a douche.

    Lived in NYC my whole life.

    by HSStudios

    I'm 40. I've spent time in neighborhoods like that. Never a podium outside. Never a weird bag, class-distinction search going on. The minute you mention a tenant's name...they ring up the apartment, no hassle. And the real dirty secret, I hesitate to mention this, because it might get people robbed...if you walk past 90% of Manhattan doormen, even if they know everybody in the building, if you nod and grin like you belong there, they let you stroll in. Only time I've been stopped is if I hesitate at the elevator, and they suddenly realize I'm not familiar with the lobby. Elevator men, sometimes a diff story. The class distinction thing going on here might be dramatically interesting. It's inaccurate. Any kid Parker's age who lives in that building will be dressing like that or worse on any given day. You'd literally have to be a homeless guy, CLEARLY wearing a messenger's bag with the company's logo on it, or be carrying food for delivery for a doorman to pull that. If this is the linking scene to the fire escape clip in the trailer, I could go into a whole history of fire codes in the city, that make it highly unlikely a building like that would have outdoor back fire escapes that high up. Buildings of that era were built with interior fire escape stairwells. Fire escapes are a feature mainly of low-rise tenement buildings. Silly.

But I'd never be douchy enough to claim I was somehow special because I lived there.

    by 420 Boylston St

    get your head out of your ass. I understand a person spinning bullshit to promote the film, but to say Garfield looks a little like John Romita's work is like saying a Toyota SPIDER looks a little like a Porsche. He looks a little like Romita's Parker in ETHNICITY only! I hope you enjoy it but please save the promoting for the filmmakers.

    Good Humor / Mean Spirt

    by THX1968

    The Bruce Campbell scene in Raimi's Spider-Man was played warmly and with good humor. This is mean spirited, and we don't really have the context to see why it plays this way. Is the entire movie going to carry this spirit? We'll see. New York looks good though.

    As far as the clip

    by Katet19

    It's odd that they would bother to release it as its sort of a non moment and I guess it goes to illustrating his lack of confidence and the ole Parker luck. But I agree that it's and odd promotional choice. That being said I dig his look, he's got the acting chops, and I like the way I've seen him play Parker a lot more than I liked Tobey. Tobey never left Wallflower mode. I loved Tobey as the classic 1960's nerdy Parker before he gets bitten, but I felt like Tobey didn't wear his confidence well after that and it felt way forced. Once Parker gets his powers he's more confident in AND out of the suit. He doesn't walk around like some wide eyed git trying to get you to join the church of Mormon.

    I'm sorry, comparing Garfield with Pattinson is so off it's not even funny. I don't see Pattinson pulling off the Eduardo Saverin role in "The Social Network" or even the role in "Dr. Parnassus." And I don't think they look anything alike. So, no Creepy, not "FACT."

    I don't get why they'd have this in the movie

    by Transhuman

    This is so similar to the Bruce Campbell scene from Raimi's Spider-Man movies. They are already dealing with the issue of it being way too soon to be re-doing the origin story. They need to avoid similarities to Raimi's as much as possible. It's just a bad idea to have this in the movie. Also, what the hell is the point of releasing this clip? After the second trailer (much better than the first) I kind of started to get interested somewhat, but this just shot that in the head. Get your shit together guys, seriously.

  • Feb. 18, 2012, 4:27 p.m. CST

    by notcher

    Spiderman is supposed to be shooting webs and cracking jokes while kicking ass. Um, I gotta feeling this is just one scene in the movie, even Toby showed up without a costume in the other movies, so yeah, not really understanding that point at all. God, some dumb arguments today.

    Garfield is too old for high school Peter Parker

    by Kirk Gostkowski

    Well one more clip to prove it- completely and utterly miscast. He comes across like a dick. This dude is not a movie star and there is nothing likable about him. Maybe this clip was to make up for including that completely awkward and stupid doorman line in the trailer. Where we see Garfield's smug response. That's just what we want in the people we are saddled with for 2 hrs or however long they'll drag this movie out for. Smug, pretentious, whining, crying, screaming Andrew Garfield. Someone on here was talking about his performance in Social Network. Oh you mean the role anyone couldve played? And on a side note- love that they are trying to turn this into Batman with the focus on dead parents. Oh and him throwing the bully into the lockers and all his snide bitching makes him Twilight tough.

    Shoulda had Bruce Campbell as (Professor) Kraven

    by tangcameo

    Could have been a scientist colleague of Doc Connors. Professor Kraven who does genetic experiments with animals in order to build a better, healthier human being. Except he turns Connors into a lizard, Michael Clarke Duncan into Rhino, [some ugly actor] into Vulture, and [some "I'm juggernaut, bitch" type actor] into Scorpion.

    Still, John Scurti deserves better than to be cast as doormen. He really did some amazing work as Lou. Just the same, I'm looking forward to this film, if only to see it fail. I have no idea if it will be good or bad but I'm certainly interested in what will become of it. It just seems so early to do a reboot. I mean, 'Batman Begins' came sixteen years after Tim Burton's original. That's only a six year difference here but the original Spiderman just doesn't feel like it was all that long ago.

    by Emperor_was_a_jerk

    What is the deal with him being and looking so old? I thought he was in high school? No way that dude looks 17. Sure, Andrew Garfield looks younger that his 28 years but certainly not ten years younger. By the time the sequel comes out Garfield will be well into his 30s! Emma Stone looks easily 24 in the movie too. Maybe the know that most high-schoolers are gawky and way too young looking to make people want to pay$15 to watch them for two hours. Still, I am looking forward to this one. And anything else with Emma in it.

    by MasterShake

  • Funny thats mentioned above, because I thought of this the other day. Everyone was SO down on Goblin Ranger and looking foward to seeing Lizard, and the design is a total bust. Lizard design for this film = epic fail. Amazing they got it SO WRONG.

  • And since when can doorman perform physical searches and deny entry into buildings? Also, why does he think he's a deliveryman? Do deliverymen use school backpacks and dress like douchbag hipsters??? And what's with the horrible slow-pan of the exterior of a shit apartment building? And where did Denis Leary get the stroke to put his friends in major big-budget blockbusters? And...nevermind...too many questions.

  • Face it, Tobey nailed the "heart" and "responsibility" aspect of Peter Parker. It's not his fault the films didn't have some of the more "trickster" Spider-Man traits.

    by Linguo_IS_Dead

    Tiny eyes, bizarre codpiece, strange sneakers, and just overall "busy" webbing design. They're basically hiding good, solid looks of spidey in action because the costume stinks and they know it. Remember Raimi Spider-Man 1...some the first promo shots were nice, clear studio pics of spider in pose (no shadowy crotch area or nothing). To think wew could've had Spider-Man 4 by now.

    Goblin Ranger" vs. "Lord Volde-Lizard

    by Linguo_IS_Dead

    I actually liked the "Goblin Ranger" in that it at least fit into what they were going for (a flight suit coupled with Osborn's love of tribal masks). So far, this Lizard design doesn't in any way match what I would expect...I mean, not even a pair of pants or some semblance of his lab coat??? Plus, the actor they got to play Connors is so "wirey" you'd think they'd go for a more elongated face/snout to match.

If i remember correctly,that story was about the tyranny of bureaucracy or something. Now imagine the same story idea but with Spider-Man instead who tries to enter the building to meet with Gwen but the evil doorman doesnt let him in.

  • Feb. 19, 2012, 1:57 a.m. CST

    by A Guy

    I remember being a kid and bragging to my brother about having seen a trailer for a Spider-Man MOVIE! on TV! This was back in the mid ninety's. Before The Raimi movies and while the comic book itself was in the Clone Saga. Of course there was no Spider-Man trailer. But my poor brother stayed tuned during every commercial break during Home Improvement episodes to try to catch the trailer. I forgot about the lie for weeks until he reminded me and I admitted that there was no Spider-man Movie. What I a dick I was. The comic book industry is about done. Unless they find a way to sell themselves like E-books have, and display themselves comfortably on a computer screen or a tablet or an I-phone - They can't possibly hold interest. I don't think they will. Superheroes, nonetheless, seem to have broken the boundaries of their original media. Thank god for us die-hard geeks. And for those of us who complain about the latest movie not being good enough. The costume design being unsatisfactory... isn't this the same shit we used to say about the comics? And isn't that great? As soon as the big Marvel/DC players realized they weren't making money - Killed Superman, Cloned Spider-man, the fans rebelled - the characters became their own. Embodying very simple moral codes. Very cool. Iconic. awesome. One story. Each Superhero is awarded One basic fundamental human code a piece. Boring, as far as Four Dimensional movies are concerned. ANYWAY: You can't Reboot Superheroes. That stupid word doesn't apply. The fact that a a Webb Spider-man is coming out relatively close to a Raimi Spider-man only means that its reflective of the multiple titles in the dead industry of comics. Remember: Peter Parker and Spider-man can't exist in the same time because they aren't REAL. The trailer for the latest Spider-man seems to me to be an incredible visual feast, and i'm interested because it's the newest story about Spider-man and the Lizard. The last Spider-man vs Lizard story I liked was Todd Mcfarlanes "Torment" trade paper back. That was great when I was thirteen. Now it reads a little melodramatic and it would make a terrible movie. We'll see what kind of movie it makes. That's a whole other conversation, a whole other problem. The great news is, there's a precedent for Spider-man movies. Spider-man Lives.

    by Jonathhan Kana

    we slowly see how big the landscape is. we see the vastness of it. because, idiots, the next scene will show peter parker scaling the same building past a fire escape that is well above him and into gwen's room. its simply setting up the scale of the building. establishing shot. I HATE you know it alls who are completely fucking wrong. anyway, with that said, super snooty red carpet doorman with a podium soooo doesnt exist in the real world. but then, most of the movie going audience doesnt live in NY and expects that it IS like this, so works. We "get" it.

  • Feb. 19, 2012, 4:04 a.m. CST

    anyway, the main reason this clip shows us the movie will SUCK

    its extremely contrived conflict to show the separation, the stubborn relentlessness of peter, and the attraction to Gwen, while shoe horning in a quick shot of the webs in action to "thrill" us for a moment as he gracefully scales the wall on the side. all because of a fake douchey doorman plot device. its completely unneeded. this movie will be no different from anything else we have already seen from Hollywood. basically, lazy,uninspired writing. We already know how this film is going down, fellas.

    Why isn't he wearing his Spider-Man costumer under his normal clothes?

    by theyreflockingthisway

    Surely that's the easiest way to carry it around with you - and keep the mask in your pocket. If you carry a bag around with you in New York you can't even go into the Public Library without being searched. As far as the scene goes, though - it's kind of interesting to be honest. I do like the idea of a super hero's identity being found out because of some stupid protocol rather than by a clever villain. I just have to guess this is how he learns to wear it under his clothes from now on.

Someone said it before me, from a lighting, editing, writing, acting and a directing standpoint, this clip IS meh. Why not show a clip where Spidey is fighting, or a clip where Dr. Connors is ABOUT to become the Lizard. You don't leak the shittiest scene possible and expect people to come in droves. I'm not a hater, this movie might be awesome, but this scene sucks. I do like that I'm seeing something, but I want something that you'd see in a SIZZLE reel, not a FIZZLE real.

    The amount of studio plants spamming these Spider-Man TBs...

    by American Mythos

    ...leads me to believe this movie will suck. Yeah, there's a lot of genuine love for it among the TBers, but there's also disproportionate amount of abvious phony praise (especially people saying this idiotic, unfunny doorman scene is "better than anything in Raimi's films"). The trailer looked awful too. Spider-Man's parents? Really? Batman's story recycled for SM? And I know a lot of this was apparently shot in NYC, but the lighting -- especially the night shots, which appear plenty -- gives it a claustrophobic, sound-stagey feel, which the Raimi pictures didn't have. I'm not beholden to that trilogy. I found Venom horribly cast and Spider-Man 3 overly bloated. SM3 was a huge misfire. And Raimi's Spidey films as a whole were hokey, but at least they had charm. With the exception of SM3, they felt like labors of love by Raimi and the cast. And they still had lots of possibilities and ground to cover. One dead fish of a movie had to trigger a reboot? I would have LOVED to see Dylan Baker as The Lizard. This reboot is premature and looks like the most cynical form of cashgrab shit. I don't really have any complaints about Garfield, other than the fact that he was obviously cast to tap into the dumbest movie going demographic, the "twihards" -- the biggest evidence being that Garfield's Spidey is sans mask through a majority of the trailer.

  • Without the awesomeness of Bruce Campbell Fuck this movie.

  • The more I see of this film the worse it looks.

  • He speaks in what I call: 'whisper-shouts' He puts the force of a shout into his delivery, but says it in a whisper voice I suppose some people just call that 'quiet intensity' but I find it grating on the nerves, I keep wanting to shake him and say 'just speak in a normal tone!!!'

  • It even seems like in a couple of spots the actors almost forget their lines and stumble to recover them. I quite like the Raimi spiderman films, and wasn't really in need of a reboot so soon. I'll give this a chance, and I don't feel this clip should really be used to judge the film overall. But as a clip it is very very flat, and poorly executed.

    Yeah, I guess. But isn't that the point of *all* super hero movies? Nobody's happy being a mutant/alien/radioactively affected lifeform. Maybe the Fantastic Four but even there, the Thing is all pissed about being the Thing. I guess Iron Man is cool about his lot in life but he's one of the only super heroes who intentionally created his situation. And he's a drunk.

    Question for the web heads

    by my job sucks

    You will have to pardon my ignorance on this, but, how strong is Spider- man supposed to be? In the last couple of movies he could hold up a cable car with one hand, support tons of metal from falling on Mary Jane’s head and stop a speeding train without having his arms ripped out of his sockets. (I cant remember anything from the 3rd one as I am still cleansing that shit from my brain). I just cant remember from the comics when I was a kid that he had that much strength. And if he is that strong how come when he punches someone in the face their head doesn’t come flying out of their ass.... any takers? (for the question, not the face punching)

  • Feb. 19, 2012, 11:24 a.m. CST

    Well, that's a weird scene to release.

    by Orbots Commander

    Was it one of those 'it didn't make it into the movie' cut scenes? Otherwise, I don't see the point using this as a promo.

  • Sony's scattering Parker's backpacks with Spidey's costume or something around various cities as part of a viral marketing campaign for the film! I believe this scene was released as a part of that campaign. That's why we're seeing this scene! It's all part of the marketing plan! But only for the viral marketing, not as an actual part of promoting the film on national television! Now you know!

    As soon as they hired the director of 500 Days of Summer, you knew it was going to be a shitty movie. This is the CW, Twilight, tween version of Spider-Man. It funny who they seem to have taken all the things we hated about the Raimi movies and used that as the standard for this movie. I wonder if there's a musical number in this one too? And anyone who expected a good Ghost Rider movies, from the guys who made Crank and Gamer, I hope you learned your lesson.

    He can never get a break! But secretly he is the amazng Spider-Man, superhero who is loved by all! With his trusty webshooters, he... zzzz... Sorry. I put myself to sleep. Hey, here's a thought: how about if the Spider-Man story evolves a little? There have to be at least 1000+ issues of Spider-Man comics out there in one form or another. There are stories beyond his origin and "Peter Parker is a sad sack in New York."

    release a scene with Spidey web-slinging across the city, or involved in a fight scene (that will look not that radically different than Raimi's), that will look brilliant compared to this.

    by A Guy

    Spider-Man has always been the "Tween" version of Spider-Man. He was invented as an alternative to the less accessible super-heroes of the day - A way for kids, "Tweens" too imagine themselves with superpowers and tights. Occasionally the comics would have a darker story arc. If given a massive budget, The CW would probably be the closest thing to a literal adaptation of the comics, which were always soap operas. From the look of the trailers, they're leaning towards the dark, brooding superhero with this one. Something like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Or The Boy with the Lizard Tattoo. I imagine there will also be moments of levity. Hopefully no dance number.

    Thanks for clearing that little point up, just seems a bit weird to me though that he is using the super hero version of a 'bitch slap' on killers and evil buggers who are hell bent on world domination. If some one had attacked my loved ones,and I had Spider-mans strength, like Doc Ock and the Green Goblin did in the first 2 movies (I still wont talk about no 3) I would have comatosed thier nasty butts with my fist's of fury the next time a saw them...And probably saved the NY City and it,s citizens from a lot of pain and grief in the long run from stopping these gobshites coming back (as they always do!).

  • Dont believe the hype about this not being able 2 fail,sure it will make money, but don't be spun by the vain hopes of plants shuffling along back and forth at the behest of The Suits, who have nothing creative invested in the production beyond trying to conjure up ways to gain a dishonest buck. word of mouth counts,and if this is as bad is its currently shaping up to appear than this will probably make about 50/60 mill more than green lantern minumum when all said and done. Especially with The Dark knight rise,s looming around the corner release date wise. It wont do as expected,and it will be one more dent in the already crumbling foundations of Sony pictures This will not be the surprise X-men:First Class was A bit pompous on my part u think? i want 2 be wrong but i don't think i will be,self fulfilling prophesy be damned

    To an extent, but I think the thing with Spidey is he's haunted not by actually having powers, but by this overwelming obligation he feels based on what Ben told him All through the spidey comics he's constantly planning to 'hang up his webs forever' and have a normal life. But he never can manage to do so. Where as Batman is driven and haunted and whatnot, but I never get the sense that batman wants to quit being batman. In fact with batman bruce wayne is the real illusion where as spiderman to me always is really peter parker, and spidey is a persona he adopts, but its just this all consuming reckingball in his life which keeps dragging him down.

    by Jeff

    So this scene is 40 seconds long, If you were a doorman and had to stand in the same spot everyday would you not once in a while fuck with someone? Its a perfectly normal experience for someone. just because this movie is Spider-Man, does that mean he NEEDS to be doing something spectacular every scene? Do you need him to do cartwheels and shoot webs out his ass for it to be enjoyable? Think of the previous trilogy to this movie as the bulk of the old Batman frachise to the Nolan films. Granted the first two Batman flicks will always be awesome... I have a feeling that this new Spiderman movie is gonna rock. Comparable to the difference from nipples on the batsuit to exploding blade gauntlets. I for one and looking forward to enjoying this flick.
