Official stills from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 show off more Electro, more Spidey, and Gwen!

Jul. 11, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Yesterday, it seemed like it was raining Spider-Man news, be it from Andrew Garfield's comments on Spidey's sexuality or our first look at Electro's costume and today it looks like the skies are still cloudy as a whole new batch of official images from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 have dropped, courtesy of EW. The pics include another look at Electro (Jamie Foxx) in his new get-up. Additionally, there are shots of the ol' webhead, a familiar-looking image of The Rhino aka Aleksei Sytsevich (Paul Giamatti), and a shot of Peter Parker aka Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).

Take a look:

The most interesting thing I see out of these pics is the computer thingamajig on Electro's head, which suggests some type of control device for his powers...or something. In terms of Electro's origin, I don't recall him ever having a device that controlled his powers, but at this point I'm just along for the ride when it comes to this franchise. The deviations have been a hybrid of THE DARK KNIGHT method of thinking, which spins existing characters to fit their universe, rather than adapting them perfectly to their comic-book page origins. And, certainly, that's going to happen when jumping from page to screen, but some are more faithful than others. I'm intrigued by what this franchise is doing and where it's going now that they abyssmal snooze of his origin is in the can.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Dane DeHaan, Chris Cooper, Colm Feore, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Sarah Gadon, Denis Leary, and B.J. Novak, swings into action on May 2, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: With these new costume reveals of Electro, would you say your anticipation for the film has increased, decreased, or still the same?

The first film was so forgettable for me, that I have no enthusiasm for this film. And seeing these villains, in particular Jamie Foxx, I just have very little interest in this. I'll wait for a trailer.

The Batman and Robin of Spidey movies.

This looks like it could either be better than the first or the worst spidey movie ever. Also, I love the idea of making Peter bi. Idk why, but it would add to the cheese factor.

The new Spidey suit looks good and I'm a little worried that the characterisation for Max Dillon will be too over the top and comedic before his transformation, but we'll have to see and I'm still looking forward to this.

i'm more for the retro look for Electro. then again, i'm just "old school" . . . lol! however, either way, i think it's good to change things up & add a lil spice to the mix. still looking forward to watching the movie.

Electro looks so much better than the set pics, that's why you have to wait. I don't understand the hate, would you rather him to wear a huge mask with yellow 'bolts' coming out of it?

The new Spidey costume looks amazing. I'm shocked there's so much hate for these pics because they look great.

I'm SHOCKED too. There's no need for people on this site to be so BLUE. I bet he gives an ELECTRIFYING performance in the film.

Meh...

Am I the only one who can't get excited for THIS Spidey 2?

I just can't work up any enthusiasm for it at all.

nah

I might be the only one who prefers the campy green and yellow costume because it just doesn't seem like he is the same character from the comics and also that he is black instead of white, just like I felt like the Lizard wasn't the Lizard. I hate the look of Electro and the Lizard. Plus they did a shitty job on the Lizards character. I like the Amazing Spiderman(Good movie, ok spiderman movie), thought Andrew was a better Spiderman/ Peter Parker than Tobey. I will still see it because I love

I'll still dream than Marvel will get the spiderman film rights back and get someone better than Marc Webb to do Spiderman.

Andrew Garfield's quote in the first image...

What a coincidence, I wish someone else was doing your job too so that I could enjoy these movies.
I truly hope this second one turns out better than the first.

Pretty funny...

...how they tried so hard to revert/update the Spider-Man costume in the last movie, and now they're basically edging quickly back toward the Raimi look. Which I don't have a problem with, because that suit looked way cooler.

Pics look good. I like they're giving Spidey the actual look from the comics. Wasn't a big fan of the suit in the first movie. And Elecro looks cool, I like how they've designed him vs. the comic books. I'll be honest, always thought Electro was a silly looking villain, but whatever. Now get us a look at the fully rendered Rhino!

Foxx looks like he could be taking this to "Schwarzenneger as Mr. Freeze" levels of badness.

Looks good. I just hope the story has a better "flow" this time around because that's what I found most bothersome about the first one.

Hmmm, I liked the first image yesterday. But the more I see this the less I like it. And what's up with the memory card? Lemme guess, it's like his weak spot or something? Blech...

Same for me. I really liked the first costume because it stood from the Tobey Version.

Skypager...

while i like the more classic Spidey suit, whats with the bluetooth on Electro?? i mean, im sure its got something to do with either his power or his imprisonment hinted earlier, but, man, that thing looks silly. also, i HAVE to see Rhino in costume before i can be swayed either way.

A SIM CARD?

Why does Electro have a SIM card on his head? Is he some sort of living cell phone? Like more bars in more areas or something? Weird.

Electro kind of looks like Arnold's Mr. Freeze

I do like the more edgy look of Electro compared to his original and campy yellow and green counterpart. I hope this movie is good.
