    Andrew Garfield as Amazing Spider-Man

    Yesterday a trailer for Amazing Spider-Man hit the internet. What is the reaction so far? With Sam Raimi’s trilogy in the rear view mirror, will Mark Webb ((500) Days of Summer) fill the gaps of Peter Parker’s origin story by dimming the lights in his Queens bedroom and sticking Andrew Garfield in a hoodie?
