Peter Parker is not what he seems to be in a new clip of "The Amazing Spider-Man". Bullied by popular kids at school for being a nerd, he fights back by making fun of his schoolmate Flash Thompson at a basketball court. Peter shows off his ball-juggling skill while telling Flash to take the ball from his hand.
"The Amazing Spider-Man" promises to reveal "the untold story" of Peter a.k.a Spidey. Like most teenagers his age, he is trying to figure out who he is and how he to be the person he is today. In his journey to put the pieces of his past together, he uncovers a secret that his father held. The secret will ultimately shape his destiny as Spider-Man.
While promoting the movie on MTV, lead actor Andrew Garfield gushed about how he developed on-screen chemistry with his real-life girlfriend Emma Stone. "We got on really well as people, in between [takes]," he recalled.
"That was the fun stuff: In between, we'd just mess around, and I felt, 'Ah, this is different.' I wasn't really aware what was happening in the screen test," he continued. "She keeps you on your toes, and that wakes you up. That was the beginning."
"Obviously I was so happy that she got the role and decided to do it. Those are the days I'd look forward to, you know? For Peter as well, because Peter goes through some horrible stuff in the movie. There's some joy to be had when experiencing his first love."
Emma, meanwhile, recalled how she first shot a scene with Andrew. "I went and did a screen test that was very elaborated," she said. "It was full hair and makeup and with the [director of photography] and different angles, and Andrew was there. We read a couple of scenes together. We did the scene at Oscorp - 'Why are you here?' - and a sad one."
"The Amazing Spider-Man" is directed by Marc Webb and also supported by Rhys Ifans, Sally Field, Martin Sheen and Denis Leary. The anticipated superhero movie will arrive in cinemas across the U.S. on July 3.
