Peter Parker Vs. Flash Thompson in New Amazing Spider-Man Clip

Yahoo! Movies has debuted a lighthearted new clip from Columbia Pictures’ The Amazing Spider-Man that features Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker turning the tables on Chris Zylka’s Flash Thompson on the basketball court.

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance — leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

Directed by Marc Webb, the film also stars Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Embeth Davidtz and Annie Parisse. The Amazing Spider-Man opens July 3.

    I’m sorry, but this and the football clip are just plain stupid.  Clearly, they’re WAY beyond what any normal human can do and would be a HUGE raised hand to tell everyone: “Hey, I’m Spider-man!”  Peter Parker is not that stupid.  But then again, my Peter never made a deal with the Devil, either.

    It’s like in the first one when he flipped 10 feet in the air and punched Flash across the room in front of everybody, then they’re like “You shouldn’t have done that” instead of “WTF!?”. The original comics when Flash challenged Pete to a boxing match and Pete won (while breaking his glasses and realizing he didn’t need them anymore) would be a much more subtle way to do it.

    I think this scene is way before he becomes Spider-Man. More so judging from his face at the end, I’m guessing he doesn’t even know what he really is capable of doing now.
