The first snippet from the upcoming superhero movie highlights a scene where Peter gets stopped by a doorman who won’t give him a pass into Gwen’s apartment unless he shows what’s inside his bag.
The fresh clip sees Peter Parker trying to visit Gwen Stacy at her family’s apartment, and was forced to be squaring off against one of his toughest opponents yet. A doorman at her residence, however, comes in his way because Peter is hesitant to show what he has inside his backpack.
“No bag, no Gwen!“, insisted the doorman.
Note that I said Peter Parker and not Spider-Man, because you won’t see any CG sewer battles against the Lizard (Rhys Ifans) or high-flying web-slinging through the streets of New York. Instead of thrills, the clip tries to highlight the levity of Marc Webb’s (500 Days of Summer) version of Peter Parker/Spider-Man while at the same time paying homage to the Sam Raimi vision.
The video also reminds how the backpack (from the early part of the viral) connects with everything and why Peter has to use the window.
So “Peter Parker vs the Doorman” might not be the most thrilling set piece in all of The Amazing Spider-Man but it does spotlight Parker’s character differences from that of Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). Also, if you watch the second trailer (at the very beginning), Parker does say that Stacy has an “intimidating doorman” so we can assume this scene comes right before he scales the building to visit her. This doorman is no Bruce Campbell, however, who fans will remember as having cameos in each of the previous three Spider-Man movies.
