It’s a good thing I’m not Spider-Man, because I would totally take all that power and do something bad with it. Forget all that “with great power comes great responsibility” nonsense. But hey, it’s a good thing for New York I’m not the masked arachnid, then, and it’s Peter Parker under the costume. Although Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” promises more villains, more action, and more daring by the superhero, it also promises lots more fun, too.
Check out the international trailer for the film, which has a ton of new footage. What’s a Spider-Man movie without some wisecracks, after all? Let’s just hope Gwen Stacy doesn’t go around blabbing Spidey’s secret identity to everyone.
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.
