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.

Spidey being Spidey next year, May 2, 2014.

    I’m genuinely looking forward to this one… even though I wasn’t completely satisfied with the first one…

  • ネイサン

    …and for the record, I enjoy the liberties Hollywood takes with our comic book heroes… they don’t always pan out the way we want, but how boring (or odd) would that be if we got EXACTLY what the comics illustrated onto the big-screen… can you imagine Affleck’s Batman with blue and grey tights? I don’t wanna see it…

      THank you very much. Adaptation means change. some things that work visually in a comic or work literally on the page don’t translate well to real life. That said, I’d love the new Batsuit to look like a cross between the New 52 and the Arkham games costume.

      • ネイサン

        I actually like the bat-suit from Arkham Origins… BUT with that being said, I would most definitely welcome something different in Snyder’s version of Batman… especially since his Batman is ‘old’ relatively… an evolved style is something I’d expect.

        • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

          I was thinking something closer to Arkham City, the Black and Grey crossed with the New 52 current comic look.

    “What’s a Spider-Man movie without some wisecracks, after all?”

    Its called a Raimi Spiderman.

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Nix

      Really? There are NO wisecracks in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies? Boy, someone sure has mastered revisionist history.

      • Aegon the Conqueror

        The only one I can think of is in number one. When Goblin says something like, “You’re out of luck.” and then Spiderman responds, “it’s you whose out Gobby, out of your mind.”
        That’s not really a wisecrack.

        • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Nix

          Spider-Man 2 is, easily, one of the best superhero movies of all time. In 10 years when you see it again (as an older, wiser comic book fanboy), you’ll think back and say, “Damn, Nix was right, that Sam Raimi guy really did know what he was doing with Spider-Man back then!”

          • Aegon the Conqueror

            Hey I liked the first two Spidermans. They were the best pre marvel studios superhero films out there. Number three ruined things in a bad way. However I like the new one a lot more as well as Andrew Garfield’s interpretation.
            But getting back to my original point, the Tobey Maguire Spiderman is not the wisecracking happy go lucky Spidey from the comics. He never had me laughing out loud at what he said, Andrew’s spiderman does that every five minutes.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Nix

            Right. Three movies. Six hours. Not a SINGLE wisecrack in the whole trilogy. Absolutely. Sigh. You win the Internets. I give up.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            Spiderman 2 is definitely the best of the Raimi flicks. And I have to agree with Aegon they got the villains right, Especially Ock and Goblin (suit could’ve been better but the characterization was perfect). But the thing with Spidey is there has always been a balance between Peter and Spidey. Peter has to deal with all of the social issues, an day to day stuff like not getting/or keeping the girl, keeping hs job, doing well in school, paying rent, etc. but as Spidey all of that is secondary to saving lives, and where Peter is an introvert keeping his thoughts to himself mostly, Spidey’s anonymity allows him to say whatever he wants. Maguire had like three, maybe four wisecracks in the whole trilogy, and Garfield has that before he even gets the suit. We wouldn’t have Amazing without the Raimi films, but I prefer Amazing to the original trilogy.
            I feel the same way about Batman. I love the Dark Knight trilogy, but still don’t feel that was a definitive Batman. I still want the world’s greatest detective that’s like 10 moves ahead of everyone. Hopefully that’s what we’ll get in Superman vs Batman.

            And 10 years from now when they reboot Spider-Man and Batman again, some kid will fight to the death about how those movies are the best, and older and wiser Dedpool and Aegeon will be here or somewhere trying to convince him that No, the Marc Webb and Nolan movies were better! But he’ll disagree, because to him those movies are “old” and the “new” one is always the best! And round and round it goes…

          • Aegon the Conqueror

            No no no, I’m not saying new is always better. In fact I’m supposed to like the Raimi ones more cause they have the added nostalgia of coming out when I was like eleven. But growing up and then actually starting to read the comic books I realised more and more that the Raimi Spiderman isn’t exactly the comic book one. I’m not saying Garfield is either, but he’s a hell of a lot closer.

            BTW Neil Blomkamp is like a mile from my house shooting some movie starring Hugh Jackman.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            LMAO! Such is the way of things. I am by no means saying that Webb’s fil;ms are superior because they are teh shiny new version, but because they got the core of the character better. I have actually ALWAYS said that the Raimi films were a mixed bag, and that I never got my version of Spidey in those. I’m not looking for exact interpretations of the characters mind you, I know it won’t always work because of the realistic setting, etc. but something that makes the character who he is. Raimi’s world was very much the world of Spiderman, but the character itself got mishandled. It seems like Webb, and Sony are trying to rectifuy that by giving us the character and building his world around him. Not just introducing a villain and then killing them off.

      • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

        No, but there really weren’t many, and the few they had were pretty bad. The first Iron Man had more wisecracks than all three of the raimi films. I’m a huge fan of Spiderman, and that was what disappointed me most about those. They made him TOO angsty and didn’t balance it with levity. And when they did we go Peter walking down the street happy go lucky, and pointing and then we got emo Peter and the jazz routine.

    I like everything about this new franchise except one thing. Peter makes a promise to a dying man at the end of the first film. A man who has devoted his career to protecting the city and has just sacrificed his own life to save Peter and the entire population of New York.
    Pete swore to that man that he would not carry on a relashionship with his daughter at the risk of endangering her life. Was it that hard?!
    It seems as if he didn’t even wait for the rigomortis to set in on the valiant and courageous Captain Stacey’s body before trying to knock Gwen’s boots! He could have at least waited another movie before defiling the man’s memory and the integrity of his child. Spider-man is a poon hound who has no honor and even less morals. Bro’s before hoe’s Peter, bro’s before hoe’s. Real classy!

    • Aegon the Conqueror

      Speaking as someone who was a teenager not that long ago, and speaking as someone who really really appreciates the beauty of our current Gwen Stacy…I’d prob break that promise in record time too.

      • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Nix

        “Yes, Captain Stacy, I promise as you lay dying here that I will not go near your daughter.” 5 Minutes later… “Hey, Gwen, wanna get it ON?”

      • Juggernaut

        LOL! I can understand his reasons but c’mon! There is plenty of hot ass at Mid-Town High. Felicia, M.J., Liz. He could even hit the Bugle for a piece. Brandt is a slut for cryin’ out loud! Did he really need to break a promise to a dying hero??? Um, yeah, never mind, don’t answer that…

        • Aegon the Conqueror

          I appreciate your point believe me. However I think it’s a bit more complicated than that. Number one he might be Spidey but he’s still a massive misfit nerd with anti social tendencies. Can’t think he’s high on Mid town’s eligible bachelors list. Now you have a girl whose not only insanely hot but also very smart and attracted to him. Plus they’ve got excellent chemistry and she just happens to know his biggest secret. I don’t think the captain was being fair, Peter doesn’t stand a chance.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            Gotta agree with the youngin here! This isn’t just a move on and find the next girl situation, PLUS if STone has her way the Gwen Stacy arc will play out and we’ll get to Liz, and Felicia and possibly MJ. Him going against his promise is human nature. How many times has a guy dated a girl he wasn’t supposed to, or said he wouldn’t and vice versa. Plus with Gwen knowing he made the promise it made it harder to keep, cause she wanted him to break it. But things won’t be perfect for them.
