Official Synopsis: It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
So at this point, I think I have said everything I am going to say about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in my posts for the first and second trailers. This trailer spends a significant amount of its time on Max Dillon and his turn to Electro, much more than the previous trailers. I am looking forward to seeing Electro, Rhino, and a new Green Goblin on screen and recently it was confirmed B.J. Novak is playing Alistair Smythe, better known as the Ultimate Spider Slayer. As I mentioned before in a previous post, I’m worried about the movie having too many villains. Although I think (hope) Novak is more of a set-up for the next sequel. One thing is for sure, Webb is definitely going big with his Spider-Man sequel. It looks like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is shaping up to be the largest, most ambitious Spider-Man movie yet.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2, directed by Marc Webb, will be in theaters May 2, 2014, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Sally Field, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Dane DeHaan, Chris Cooper, and B.J. Novak.
We’ll see how it plays out, but it sure seems this one might be biting off more than it can chew.
I think so too. One of the problems with Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 was it tried to do too much and stumbled over itself. I’m hoping for the best though.
That was definitely one of the big issues with SM3. Though not the only one. 🙂
