Oh, the doorman. Helpful, courteous, reliable and sometimes...kind of a pain in the ass. The first clip from The Mark Of The Spider-Man viral site has been revealed, and it seems to be a pretty good indication of the film's tone and certainly shows that the quippy dialogue Marc Webb handled in "(500) Days Of Summer" isn't too far behind.

Last year, we had four summer superhero films, of which two turned out to be fairly unqualified successes -- the Marvel pictures, "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" -- one a moderate success -- "X-Men First Class" -- and one that tanked like Lori Petty -- "Green Lantern." As we said sometime last week, this summer is less complicated when it comes to comic book fare, with two of the three films based on graphic novels being solid gold hits regardless of anything, namely "The Dark Knight Rises" and "The Avengers."

Today in various cities across the globe (and linked, through the magic of technology, seamlessly), Sony presented a smattering of footage from July's hotly anticipated reboot "The Amazing Spider-Man," as well as the brand new (3D!) trailer. While much of the footage seems fairly familiar, with many of the same story beats being hit from Sam Raimi's original 2002 iteration, there were enough surprises to hold our interest, and visually the movie appears to be absolutely ravishing -- deep and immersive in ways most 3D movies lack.

Now that we've all had a chance to recover from the excitement of either a) some of the awesome Super Bowl spots or b) a pretty thrilling Super Bowl (depending on your relative levels of interest) it's time to check out something a little more sedate -- still images.

Now that we're well into 2012, more and more is being revealed about some of the year's biggest films, thanks in part to Entertainment Weekly. The magazine's annual 2012 preview issue has already provided some key first looks at various upcoming releases, including "The Dark Knight Rises." Not everything is quite as rabidly anticipated as Christopher Nolan's third Batman film, but there's plenty more spectacle where that came from. Indeed, one of the newest images contains what looks to be the most incredible, gravity-defying special effect of the year: Amanda Seyfried's bubble-perm.

Admittedly, Team Playlist is an oddball collection of cinephiles, snobs and genre-dorks, sometimes only unified by one thing: a healthy dose of skepticism in a world largely occupied by wishful-thinking fanboys. But this diversity means that we can be at once cynical optimists and optimistic cynics.

Peter Parker: Student, photographer, superhero, punk rocker. While Tobey Maguire's incarnation of Peter Parker was more likely to listen to Death Cab For Cutie and cry himself to sleep, it looks like Marc Webb's upgraded take on the character has a pair of Doc Martens in his closet next to his Spidey suit.

Even though we're right in the middle of awards season hoopla, it looks like the year (or this week anyway) is going to end on a geeky note. In addition to the much-talked-about prologue, a new trailer for "The Dark Knight Rises" has already leaked online and is expected to be officially released very soon, a poster dropped for "Prometheus" (and a new trailer should coming soon as well) and now two of the big comic book movies of next spring/summer are getting out of the gate with some stuff to look at.

Batman isn't the only hero in tights coming next summer. Spider-Man is starting over, putting Sam Raimi's trilogy in the rearview and trusting the franchise to the hands of "(500) Days Of Summer" director Marc Webb. And while its not as sexy as a six minute prologue at your local IMAX, it is a brand new poster, which is something.

James Horner May Get Caught In The Web To Score 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

Composer James Horner has seemingly done it all during his lengthy career. With seven Oscar nominations leading to one win (for "Titanic"), Horner has tuned up a wide variety of movies including "Wolfen," "48 Hrs.," "Glory," "Honey I Shrunk The Kids," "Braveheart," "Apollo 13," "Avatar" and even famously clashed with Terrence Malick over "The New World." However, aside from "The Rocketeer," he hasn't done much in the way of comic book movies. But all that may change very soon. In a recent interview with SCOREcast Online (via Film Music Reporter) music editor and frequent Horner collaborator Jim Henrikson revealed that the composer “is pretty well set” to take on the gig. However, it should be noted this interview took place way back in May (why it's only being aired now is beyond us) and there has been no other word either way anywhere else since. So take it as tentative for now.
