Watch: First Trailer For 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Plus Web Of New Images From The Film & Commentary

With Warner Bros. bulking up “Batman Vs. Superman” with Wonder Woman, the Marvel-verse continuing to expand like so many waistlines at an all you can eat buffet, it’s time for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” to level up in the superhero arms race.

The first trailer for the web-spinning sequel is here, promising plenty for fans. If complaints about the first movie was that it was slightly tweaked retread of the familiar origin story, this time around Spidey (Andrew Garfield) has Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Electro (Jamie Foxx) to tangle with as Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) enters the picture too. And of course, the general consensus is the building blocks to Sinister Six are being laid. But through it all, Peter Parker’s eye will be on Gwen (Emma Stone). Here’s the official synopsis: 

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 Amazing Spider-Man 2” lands on May 2, 2014. Watch below. Update: This trailer apparently needs some ‘splainin’ so director Marc Webb and the cast have sat down to record a trailer breakdown/commentary track which you can see below.

Yes! Finally the answer to the too many villains issues with Spider-Man 3 has been answered. Their solution? Throw even more villains in. Does anyone else feel like that guy on titanic first sighting the iceberg when watching this trailer?


The CGI in this film looks awful! though I do like the fact there changing rhino into a machine, I adds a bit of originality to it. Electro still looks terrible though.


The girly-shrieks of breathless anticipation and irrepressible outrage that follow every clip and trailer for anything superhero related are why comic book reading geeks fell out of favor in the first place.

Get a hold of yourselves.

Trust me, you've seen this movie at least a dozen times over the last decade. Only the costumes change.

Now. Calm. Down.


This trailer makes me sad that Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb got sucked into the machine when they should be out there making interesting movies.

Instead they are selling video games, toys, and Happy Meals.

Enjoy your sports cars, guys. Here is hoping this (second) detour to the bank doesn't become a dead end for your once promising brands.

RHINO going to be mechanical? [Jamie Foxx' s] ELECTRO looking like the Sith Lord of STAR WARS? What manner of madness is MARVEL allowing for the money? Oh well, yeah yeah, it's the [HOLLYWOOD] money once more trumping original creativity. We Spidey Fans are suckers–we'll go see it just cause of, "SPIDER-MAN"… And that just about sums it up. Excelsior! Nuff Said. –GBJ


I forgot Andrew Garfield was now Spiderman, shows how memorable the first one with him was! But this doesn't look any better or any worse than every other superhero movie out there. There's just a real feeling of "been there, done that" to this.

HORRENDOUS looking horseshit.


Looks like another Kurtzman/Orci masterpiece. The dialogue, in particular, sounds masterful.


it looks much better than the first one.

Looking forward to seeing "The Amazing Spiderman 2." Jamie Foxx was an unexpected but good choice and I'm cool with Andrew Garfield since "The Social Network." Good post Kevin Jagernauth. Kudos to #IndieWire for publishing this!

More slo-mo jumping! At least DeHaan seems to be front and center in the pic and Garfield and Stone's chemistry looks intact.


Is Shailene back in this because at 2.05 they show the back of her as the car crashes down outside eisenberg sandwich shop.
