The Amazing Spiderman
Andrew Garfield stars as Peter Parke in The Amazing Spider-Man. (Columbia Pictures)

The first full-length trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man has been released.

The film represents a complete reboot of the franchise, with Tobey Maguire replaced by English actor Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and director Sam Raimi stepping aside for Marc Webb.

Intended to take the comic book back to its roots, the trailer displays some of Parker's trademark humour alongside some spectacular brawls with Rhys Ifan's Lizard.

The previous series of films were well liked by comic book fans, an audience that is famously hard to satisfy, and it remains to be seen whether the latest offering will be similarly received. First impressions suggest the new film aims to be just as spectacular.
