New international trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is pretty sweet
A new international trailer has dropped for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 and it's pretty exhilarating, featuring a ton of new footage mingled with most of what we've already seen. Whether you're onboard for the film or not, it's hard to deny a well chopped trailer and this is nicely done. Certainly the "show too much" argument is valid for those who wish to remain more in the dark prior to seeing the actual film, but for those that aren't as affected by that, this is pretty cool.
Here's the synopsis:
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.
At this point, I'm more excited to see how they play all of this out and I'm digging the mystery that surrounds Chris Cooper's Norman Osborn. With the fate of Gwen Stacy uncertain and the impending reveal of the Sinister Six, be it in this film or the next, this has me looking forward to the potential of the Spidey universe.

I have my theories, but we're always interested to hear what you guys think.
