If the combined team-up of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Nick Fury and the Hulk isn’t enough to get you into a theater next weekend, prepare to throw Batman and Spider-Man into the mix. Marc Webb confirmed today on Attack of the Show that a new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man will be joining the previously announced trailer for The Dark Knight Rises before screenings of Marvel’s The Avengers, beginning Friday, May 4th. According to Webb, the trailer will likely arrive online first, sometime next Thursday.
The Amazing Spider-Man, meanwhile, is set for release on July 3rd and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, with Martin Sheen and Sally Field. Directed by Marc Webb, the film arrives with a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
The news comes on the heels of the announcement that Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are coming on board to work on the screenplay for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the continuation of the Webb film’s viral campaign, the latest message from which was just cracked over at SuperHeroHype.
