First official clip from The Amazing Spider-Man debuts online

As part of their “Mark of the Spider-Man” viral marketing campaign to promote their upcoming summer superhero flick, Marvel and Sony Pictures have released the very first official clip to Marc Webb’s Spider-Man movie reboot “The Amazing Spider-Man“, featuring the main star himself Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, in a scene where he meets his biggest challenge yet. SPOILERS abound of course, so watch the clip after the jump if you’re among the curious!

The Amazing Spider-Man: First “Mark of the Spider-Man” clip

Peter Parker gets his first big challenge yet… The Doorman. In a way, it’s very similar to and reminiscent of a scene in Sam Raimi’s second Spidey flick, “Spider-Man 2/ 2.1“, where Peter (played by Tobey Maguire) was ousted by none other than a doorman/ usher… Played by Bruce Campbell!

Fun comparison, and Raimi’s trilogy is still a classic set (despite the last movie’s flaws). Can’t wait for the new take by Marc Webb, and only a few months to go before its release! For more information and details on the story, visit the source post at Comic Book Movie!
