Check out the latest trailer for “The Amazing Spider-Man,” the reboot of the popular franchise starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. It kicks off with an impromptu visit to Gwen’s bedroom, followed by an awk-ward dinner with her family. Denis Leary would certainly be an intimidating dad of the girl you’re trying to date.

There is also the wonderful Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben and an intriguing backstory about Peter’s father. We’ll confess to now knowing all the mythology from the comic books, so we’re interested about that facet of this reboot.

Are we alone in feeling like this looks so much better than the Tobey Maguire/Kirsten Dunst version? Perhaps we are just soured on that one because of how ridiculous the second and third ones got. What do you think, Zap2it readers?

“The Amazing Spider-Man” opens nationwide July 3, 2012.
