Actually, this clip's purpose goes well beyond that, as it represents a team-up between Sony and Wal Mart whereby consumers can pay $3.00 to purchase a DVD that contains the clip, some behind the scenes footage, a videogame trailer, and a digital version of Amazing Spider-Man number 6, where cinematic bad guy The Lizard made his first appearance. So you can actually pay about 1/4 the price of a movie ticket for what is just an advertisement.
Anyways, the clip finds Spider-Man foiling an attempted auto theft and doing so while effectively torturing the would-be thief. It sells that this rebooted Peter is a motormouth and a smartass, but in contrast to Tobey Maguire's gentle Parker, it also makes him seem like more than a little bit of a bully. Hopefully this comes before he figures out the whole "great power, great responsibility" thing and we're supposed to think Peter's going a bit too wild with his powers.
This clip leads directly into another official excerpt from earlier this month, where Peter flees the police and does some early webslinging.
If you're looking to get starting stitching the movie together, check out other clips including Gwen Stacy trapped in a closet, Peter talking to Dr. Connors and Captain Stacy, a tender moment between sweethearts, and a bit of superpowered basketball.
Sony has already selected a May 2, 2014 release date for the sequel to this film, and in April the studio brought aboard Transformers and Star Trek duo Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman to (re)write the screenplay. Marc Webb directs this time out, and he's definitely contractually obligated to return if Sony wants him back. Same goes for stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, both of whom will return no matter how much post-reboot retooling the sequel undergoes.
The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters in just a few weeks, on July 3rd.
