‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ trailer leaks, is quickly taken down

Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man (ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY)
The first trailer for “The Amazing Spider-Man” leaked to the Web sometime Tuesday. But it was quickly taken down. Of course, a few lucky people got a chance to see it.

The trailer reportedly shows that the film has a darker tone than its predecessors, according to Cinema Blend, and is more focused on Peter Parker’s parents and backstory.

Does this hoopla feel familiar? It should. There was similar buzz around leaks of the trailer for the “Dark Knight Rises,” which was finally released Monday.

If you really need a “Spider-Man” fix, you can see Andrew Garfield, who plays Parker, on the cover of Entertainment Weekly looking rather svelte in his Spidey suit.

The full trailer will legally debut before “Captain America,” which opens Friday.

Update: The trailer is still up on Big Shiny Robot.
