Three new electrifying international posters for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Jan. 7, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

Sony has released three new international posters for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, and to be honest, it doesn't look like that much time was spent creating them. One of the posters looks very similar to the banner that was released last month, and Jamie Foxx's Electro is doing the exact same pose in all three posters. They do give us a slightly better look at Green Goblin's (Dane DeHaan) face, but overall, I'm pretty disappointed with these posters. WTF happened to movie posters, indeed.

Danger! Danger! High Voltage!

Synopsis:

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.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 also stars Paul Giamatti, Chris Cooper, Sally Field, Colm Feore, B.J. Novak and Felicity Jones, and will hit theaters on May 2nd, 2014.

If you're putting subtitles on a Spider-Man movie...

then the producers really missed a golden opportunity to call this

So excited for this to come out!!

However, not to watch the movie, but so that these damn promos could finally end! Sony's marketing for ASM2 has been annoying and subpar (as these posters) at best. When contrasted to the marketing of other summer superhero movies like Captain America 2 (released a month EARLIER) and X-Men: DOFP (released just a few weeks later), Sony has been desperately pushing whatever mundane marketing they have for the last 6 months or so without building any substantial hype or excitement. Seriously guys,

Seriously guys, a trailer and a few cool poster would do.

Ugh

These posters are awful... The same picture of Electro being pasted on each one (and a pose that looks plain stupid, no less) is just the tip of the iceberg. These posters are terrible.

The three posters are average, but again the pose is a little off putting when it comes to creativity.

How is it that movie studios continue to struggle coming up with a sequel that doesn't have a number in the title?

It cheapens the movie no matter how you swing it. There is always a better title than "[ANYTHING] 2." If you must, name it the same title as the first movie, and add a subtitle. I will give a pass to movies that use "Part II." It's just laziness. Can you imagine Steven Spielberg directing anything with an indexed number at the end? Imagine Dr. No 2. The Bourne Identity 2? Raiders of the Lost Ark 2? Even a great movielike the original Spider-Man 2 is cheapened slightly by it. In comics

In comics there are so many subtitles you could pull from, especially when a lot of these stories are directly based off of arcs in the books. It undermines the movie and really does not set it apart as its own story from the original. If Rise of Electro is on the title card, I appreciate that.

They...could have made it less obvious that they only had one Jamie Foxx photo on file.

The posters aren't that bad - if it wasn't for the same Electro pose being used I don't think there'd be much to complain about at all really, even if a reflection in a character's eye is kind of a clich. If the designers only had a few approved poses to work with I'd say they've done a decent job.

They're great posters, don't get me wrong. It's just that it's a bit weird that Electro has an exact same pose for three posters whereas Spider-Man has three different poses (although one is just mainly his mask).

It's kinda odd that Electro is in exactly same pose for these 3 posters.
