Check out a new trailer for Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” and finally learn, once and for all, the super secret history of the Amazing Spider-Man. Or, er, just watch him make jokes and fight a bunch of crazy ass looking villains. Yeah, I’m gonna go with the latter. I don’t think anyone gives a hoot about Peter Parker’s family history, do you?
The film certainly seems to be playing it light and fluffy, with the occasional touch of melodrama, which seems to be keeping the tone of the first movie. Take a gander, take a ganderers.
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, with Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field.
