Last year Marc Webb successfully righted the Spider-Man franchise after Sony and Sam Raimi sorely parted ways. Webb’s film, the first in a rebooted series, won critics and audiences over and with a healthy ROI a sequel was green-lit before you could say “thwip”. But this? Who saw this coming. Count the baddies…there are not one, not two, not even three villains but four (when you count Dr. Conners who is still in prison) sinister foes for Peter to possibly contend with (and really, there’s a baker’s half a dozen to those of you who picked up on the subtle foreshadowing teased in the trailer)!! Didn’t Sony learn that too may cooks in the kitchen spoils the sauce? Well it remains to be seen so for your viewing pleasure enjoy this first full trailer for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2!
Garfield and Stone (kind of sounds like a lost 70’s cop show doesn’t it?) are joined by Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti and Dane DeHaan. Word on the street is that Harry Osbourne (DeHaan) will be the “main” villain with Giamatti and Foxx being secondary characters. But still, whether or not they’re really being saved for the next film, Peter’s gonna be bumping elbows with a lot of classic comic heavies next year. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is directed by Marc Webb from a script written by Jeff Pinker, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Sony has slated TASM2 for wide release next Summer on May 2nd, 2014. Go get em Tiger!
