UPDATE: Check out the leaked Comic Con trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 before it's too late
UPDATE: And the trailer is gone. Sorry folks, only last a few hours, but copies keep popping up online like crazy. As soon as the official trailer is released we will bring it to you here.
Those at Comic Con a couple of weeks ago may have gotten a great first look at the special trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 and now you can too, for a limited time! Bootleg copies of the trailer have been popping up all over the internet and are being taken down just as quickly. If you act fast you can see the footage that should make you feel a hell of a lot better about the sequel if you didn't like Marc Webb's original.
Our breakdown of the footage is spot on as we see Andrew Garfield in full Spider-man mode complete with witty banter and smart ass commentary. This is the Spider-man that was missing from Sam Raimi's films. Gone is the more "realistic" take the filmmakers were aiming for as we see Jamie Foxx become Electro in a wholly bizarre manner involving electric eels. We get a brief shot of Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn and a look at the Ravencroft Institute.
There are a couple of moments that have storyboards in place of finalized animation, but all in all this is an impressive trailer. The scope seems bigger and the feel is a lot more like classic Spider-man. You never get the feeling that there are too many characters. I liked THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN but didn't love it. I just may love THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2.
Check out the video below while you can. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 opens on May 2, 2014.
