Sony released the first The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer this morning, giving you your first look at the upcoming sequel due to hit theaters on May 2, 2014. Just recently they also offered up a new synopsis for the film, have a look:
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.
After I posted a recent triptych poster for the film some people were concerned this movie may suffer from having too many villains as not only Electro, but the Green Goblin and Paul Giamatti as Rhino make an appearance. Give the trailer a watch and let me know how you think it looks and if you think things will be just fine or if your spidey-senses are tingling with trouble.
