Sony has released the first trailer for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starring Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx, Emma Stone, Paul Giamatti & Dane DeHaan. In this film, high school graduation for 30 year old Peter Parker can’t come soon enough. He’s a busy guy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with his lover, Peter has barely any time to buy his Aunt some fresh eggs. Things will change for him when a new villain, Electro, emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn, returns. Oh Emma Stone, how I’ve missed you & your beautiful smoker’s voice.
Colm Feore, Chris Cooper, & Sally Field also star. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters May 2, 2014. Here’s a fun fact: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is actually a sequel to 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man (who knew??).
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.
