What I like best about this sneak peak at The Amazing Spider-Man is Andrew Garfield's Steve Ditko dimensions. He's lank and beanpole were Tobey Maguire was stout and muscular; Garfield's wild hair even pushes in a Brendan McCarthy / Ditranko direction. Other than that it's a dour glimpse at next year's blockbuster that seems to hinge on the spy kit mysteries of Parker Snr's briefcase. Given that this flick abandons Jim Cameron's organic solution, is this version of the web-shooter an inherited gadget? Vim comes in the form of a Mirror's Edge influenced zip around the New York skyline.
