New trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into action!

Feb. 13, 2014by: Paul Shirey

Yet another new trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 has arrived, featuring a few new bits of footage and dialogue within the same shell of stuff we've already seen in previous trailers and spots, including the . While it doesn't offer anything new in terms of the villains, it does play heavily into their threat to the wallcrawler, who looks to be getting more than he bargained for in the sequel.

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.

I have to say, my opinion on this sequel is the polar opposite of the first film, which I was mostly bored by. Now that we're past all the bullshit origin stuff, it feels like director Marc Webb is really going for it in this one, which is good to see. I know the fear is that it will be another overpopulated SPIDER-MAN 3 and that's certainly a possibility, but the difference here is that the filmmakers seem to have this mapped out for the next film and even the spinoffs. I'm optimistic. Bring it on.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Chris Cooper, Paul Giamatti, Colm Feore, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, and Denis Leary swings into theaters on May 2, 2014.

Boring overkill aimed towards non fans and douchebags

They turned Spidey into a douchey hipster and kept him that way for the sequel. Harry looks like the king of all douches and is played by the real king of all losers. There are too many enemies in this for it to be good. 2 hours of spidey hopping around from villain to villain, with one of them turning good by the end to help Peter of course (Spidey 3 syndrome all over again).

There is no way this can be any good.

How anyone could be on board for this after the atrocious, boring first installment, the horrible casting, and generic look is beyond me. It'll be the same as the first one... everybody and their mom will be raving that nothing before this film has even come close to it's greatness but then a few months later everyone will backtrack and say, "oh, it wasn't too good, but the third is just setting up to be the shit!" Same story over and over.

Cautiously optimistic for this one. Glad they got the origin out of the way (AGAIN) & it's a full on Spidey adventure. Just hoping it doesn't suffer from character overkill.

Still couldn't care less about Pete's damn parents and think Garfield sounds more like a punk than a smart-mouthed nerd, like I imagined Spidey in the comics.

I'm excited for this, but I cringe when Garfield tries to be funny in this...and I feel like he hasn't really grown into the role yet at this point like Maguire effortlessly did for Spider Man 2.

He was and is lightyears ahead of Garfield at this point. I actually cared about Maguire's Peter Parker/Spider Man in Raimi's films. With Garfield, I didn't feel that same depth. It's almost like I want the villains to win this time around.

It's reasonable to like Raimi's films or characters more by themselves. I just hope you aren't claiming that Tobey is a better Peter Parker or a better Spider-Man, because that is objectively untrue.

Although I like Maguire, I did feel that he came off as feeling sorry for himself a lot. I like Garfields interpretation, I like the fact this Parker is a bit more cocky and is essentually doing what a teenager would do. I felt the killing of Uncle Ben definitely had a lot more depth in the reboot and the characters just seem more fleshed out this time. I thought there was a good balance between action and drama in the last one.

I cant get behind any portrayal where Peter Parker is a dumb-ass, so yes I prefer Maguire

The first three adjectives I would use to describe Tobey-Peter are: awkward, unintelligent, and embarrassing. There is no evidence of intelligence, wit, or self-respect. He cries and stumbles through every movie. Even if she could have convincingly won MJ's affections, I wouldn't have wanted him to because of her disgustingly unpleasant characterization. This is not who Peter Parker is.

Garfield's Parker is selfish, a thief, and a dumb-ass for putting his name on a camera, going vigilante without a mask,carrying around a cell phone in the field and using web shooters that can be traced back to oscorp and thus back to him

I think this will be the most true-to-form that Spider Man has ever been on film. I'm 100% on board.

You're setting yourself up for disappointment. Trust me, if its anything like the first one, you will already be disappointed enough leaving the theater.

Can't wait

This looks awesome and I Cannot wait to see this!!
Finally getting a really really good looking Spider-Man flick, the original trilogy has aged horribly and has a pretty bad cast. The amazing Spider-Man had its flaws but it was better than the first origin story. This looks like the start of something amazing.

The franchise has aged terribly? Spider Man and Spider Man 2 are easily two of the best comic book films of all time with the latter being in the top five for sure.

And the franchise had a great cast with Maguire, Dunst, Franco, Simmons, DaFoe, Molina, Church, Campbell (cameo), Howard, and Baker and etc. I thought each villain in each Raimi film was terrificly casted...except for Venom.

Maguire, Dunst, Franco are terribly cast.

And yeah it's aged terribly, the cgi looks awful, the acting is stale. The only thing raimi got right in all three of his films are the casting of JJJ and doc oc!

Such insanely overrated films.

I don't recognize the original as a trilogy with 3 sucking so badly. But I don't see 1 & 2 aging badly at all w/ the exception of the Goblin cosume & Macy Gray.

Spidey 1 rivals any super-hero origin story on film, in my opinion.

He was ok as Harry, but nothing special and he was awful in part 3. Dehaan will be a million times better!

Spidy 1 is the best of the raimi trilogy, hands down.

Spiderman 1 of Raimi's trilogy was really good. 2 was great aswell. At the moment I just prefer this new direction.
I disagree that Spiderman 1 was the greatest of superhero origins. I think it has to be Batman Begins. Just my opinion. Although Soloist I dont know how you can say the lines were cringy. There were a couple of really corny moments in Spiderman 2, one that comes to mind is where Peter has turned his back on being Spidey and is walking around with I think it is Burt Bacahrach

My only concern with this one would be Paul Giamati's performance can he do a convincing Russian accent and I hope he doesn't over act. ( Paycheck being a good example)

Other than the "laundry sherif" line, this looks like a great way to kick off Summer 2014. Let's all not forget about Paul Giamatti too.

Garfield sounds so unconfident when he tries to be funny or crack a joke. The sheriff and chimney line are cringe worthy.

Filmmakers have a unique opportunity with comic book adaptations. Because there is so much source material, there is no fixed narrative to stick to. The only thing that's necessary is that they don't destroy the essence of the characters and their relationships. The Amazing Spider-Man beat the Raimi trilogy in this regard. If you ask me, that's what matters. If you think Raimi's characterizations matched the comic books at all, I have 700 issues of Spider-Man to lend you.

No. No it didn't. At all. And Raimi's trilogy will always be the superior Spider Man films.

Sorry...

The first one was a retread of the 2002 Spider-man.
This one looks like a retread of Spider-man 2.

I'm getting pretty excited for this.

The first Amazing Spiderman didn't do much for me. It was on par with Ed Norton's Incredible Hulk. This one looks pretty badass though, and so far I'm not minding the changes they've made to the source material. The jury is still out, but it's looking good.

"Last time you did the laundry, everything turned blue and red."
You mean purple, aunt May?

And that shot with Electro zapping Spidey still looks like something out of a fucking videogame.

still on the bandwagon for this

i liked the first one, it wasn't great but i had a good time with it. The trailers for the sequel are getting better, still i don't feel it just yet..maybe it's the amount of villains and the way that they are being portrayed...i don't know yet. I will be seeing spidey 2 before i give my opinion, but i hope webb knows what he's doing. (secretly i wish that marvel got the rights back for this, won't happen anytime soon unfortunatly)
