The Amazing Spider-Man didn't do too bad but it didn't do too well either. No idea why the studio decided to reboot the franchise just five years after the one starring Tobey Maguire ended though. Seems a bit too soon, but despite that (and despite mixed reviews), Sony has already announced that they're moving forward with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Andrew Garfield will be back for the sequel, and we hope Emma Stone will be back, too. However, word is that Mary Jane will also be making an appearance in the movie, so that might complicate things. A lot.
So with a sequel coming up and an impending DVD release, you can expect the PR people to start drumming up the hype for the franchise. Today we've got some never-before-seen footage and deleted scenes from The Amazing Spider-Man, which you can watch in HD if you get the DVD. Or you could just watch the vide above.
The 17-minute clip features an alternate death scene for Uncle Ben, some naughty Lizard action in the bathroom (it's not what you think--or is it?), a closer look at the Lizard and the doctor's family, and some cozy time between Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy.
You'll also find Rhys Ifans' nose poking through the CGI effects in one of the scenes, and him with a green sock over his 'lizard' arm in another. Pretty hilarious and it's a wonder Garfield managed to keep his face straight while he's talking to a guy with a Kermit-colored sock over one arm. Enjoy!
