Apparently it kinda sucks to be Spider-Man — at least according to this trailer for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-man 2”. For one, just about every freak with a superpower or giant metal suit is trying to kill him. Then his buddy Harry shows up and promptly tries to kill him, too. On the bright side, he’s still got it going on with Gwen Stacy aka Emma Stone, so that never hurts. Still, though, man, being a superhero kinda sucks for Peter Parker.
Check out the first trailer for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”. Looks like that’s the official title, despite rumors to the contrary.
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.
Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti and Sally Field.
