Humor and action collide in this clip from The Amazing Spider-Man 2
A high-speed car chase. Stolen chemical vials shaking loose. Police scanner audio. Guitar-strumming music in the background. A wise-cracking man in spandex in the middle of it all. Yep, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 has another new clip, which feels ripped straight from the comic-book page and put on the big screen. Featuring Paul Giamatti's Aleksei Sytsevich/The Rhino driving a big ass truck through the streets of New York, while taking out everything in his path (a hint at his impending Rhino personality perhaps?), the jokester known only as Spider-Man swoops in to foil the robbery and save dangerous Oscorp chemicals from falling into the wrong hands.
Take a look:
I like that they retain Spider-Man's humor in these films and don't try to turn him into Batman in a red and blue suit. It's perfectly consistent with his comic-book persona, as Spidey cracks jokes and acts rather goofy throughout some of the most dire situations and it's good to see that the filmmakers haven't shied away from that. Anyone that wants a "more serious" Spider-Man is not really attuned to who Peter Parker is. Which isn't to say that the character can't ever be serious (see Kraven's Last Hunt for that), but he's pretty much the biggest wise ass in the Marvel universe.
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 swings into theaters on May 2, 2014.
