I wouldn't be surprised if the POV sequence was shot specifically for this trailer. The original Spidey movie has the big, elaborate bank heist with the helicopter for it's teaser....
Not sure if anyone else has addressed this, but I will.

If ya remember, that sequence ended with the helicopters gettin' caught in a web that Spidey had put up between the towers of the World Trade Center. The teaser came out before 9/11 and was immediately pulled from theaters after 9/11, and the scene was cut from the movie.

Not sure how many folks would even remember, but there was a lot of stupid shit goin' on with movies after 9/11. Folks were sayin' the second LotR needed to be renamed from The Two Towers. Others were sayin' the "flooded New York" endin' for A.I. needed to be changed since it showed a future that still had the WTC. Collateral Damage got postponed from its release date...but that actually made sense.

I think there's still one glimpse of the WTC that made it into the first Spider-Man movie, and that was a reflection in Spidey's mirrored eyes.
