WATCH: The Brit-Fest ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Trailer

Andrew Garfield in 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

So the trailer for the new rebooted Spider-Man movie has come out, and of course it’s got people in a bit of a lather. They seem to be taking a few liberties with the back-story, making Peter Parker look more like a man of destiny than the everyman geek with the secret powers that we’re perhaps more familiar with.

But we’ll have to wait until The Amazing Spider-Man comes out (July 4) to see if that’s a good thing or not. In the meantime, we can enjoy a British actor (Andrew Garfield) fighting another British actor (Rhys Ifans) on the streets of New York. Oh and Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben? Well he gets my vote.

Thoughts, reactions, venom? Put it all here:
