Just a day after bootleg footage appeared online, Sony Pictures has premiered the official teaser trailer for “The Amazing Spider-Man,” director Marc Webb’s hotly anticipated franchise reboot. The trailer will receive its theatrical release attached to Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger.”

As anyone who saw the shaky leaked video already knows, the teaser provides a compelling glimpse at Spider-Man’s origin – Peter’s father, Gwen Stacy and Aunt May and Uncle Ben all make appearances – before breaking into a vertigo-inducing point-of-view sequence that sends viewers swinging and leaping from rooftop to rooftop above the streets of New York City.

Sony will bring Webb and stars to Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone to Comic-Con International in San Diego on Friday for a presentation in Hall H. Stay tuned to Comic Book Resources for coverage of the panel.

“The Amazing Spider-Man,” which opens on July 3, 2012, also stars Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Julianne Nicholson and Annie Parisse.
