The Amazing Spider-Man Footage: The Almighty Doorman

The Amazing Spider-Man Footage: The Almighty DoormanPeter Parker meets his match in the first clip from The Amazing Spider-Man and it’s not a giant aggressive lizard.

Revealed via the ongoing viral campaign portal at, the clip features Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) trying to strut into an apartment building where Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) lives. Much to Peter’s surprise, the doorman stops him in his tracks and doesn’t fall for any of the excuses Peter uses as reasons to get past.

This 45-second clip offers our first real look at how Garfield handles the insecurities and social awkwardness that Peter Parker is saddled with. He struggles a little to put his ideas together, and altogether looks uncomfortable under the pressure of the doorman’s interrogation.

Peter has his Spider-Man outfit in his backpack so odds are favorable he’ll find an alternate means to get up to Gwen’s apartment. I’m willing to bet it doesn’t involve calling an elevator.

The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Dennis Leary, Martin Sheen and Sally Field. It’s aiming to dominate the Fourth of July holiday when it hits theaters in 3D and 2D varieties on July 3.
