Sony Pictures has released new footage from Marc Webb’s web-slinging superhero sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, to help celebrate the New Year, and remind people of Spidey’s importance to the city and people of New York.
The film sees Peter Parker and his alter-ego face off against whole new enemies in the guise of the electrically powered Electro and The Rhino.
Andrew Garfield is back in the lead, with Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy and Sally Field’s Aunt May also returning. Jamie Foxx is in as Electro, with Paul Giamatti as Rhino and Dane DeHaan as old friend Harry Osborn.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in the US on May 2nd, with Ireland and the UK two weeks earlier on April 18th.
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.
