The first official trailer for Marc Webb’s sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has dropped, and its a whopper! Running at two and a half minutes, there’s a ton of stuff to take in here, and it is obvious that this is gonna be a sequel on a truly epic scale.
There’s plenty of footage of Spidey (Andrew Garfield) and chief villain Electro (Jamie Foxx) battling it out, but the trailer goes much deeper. Peter Parker’s Dad makes a return by video footage, explaining some sinister goings on within OsCorp, and Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) and Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper) are up to no good. There’s still the love interest with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and there are some serious heart to hearts with Parker and his Aunt May (Sally Field).
On the villain front, Electro is well and truly the main threat, but we also get a brief glimpse of Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and there are blink and you’ll miss them hints at future villains, and the inclusion later in the story of The Sinister Six. There is a brief shot of Dr Octopus’ arms, Vulture’s wings and also the animal experiments which created Spidey and The Lizard, which will no doubt play a bigger part in the next two films. This is well and truly epic stuff!
The sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit The Amazing Spider-Man, the film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Sarah Gadon, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Chris Cooper and Sally Field.
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
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.
The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on 18th April 2014 in the UK and 2nd May in the U.S.
