Oh, what a tangled web. …
The final official trailer for the upcoming “Amazing Spider-Man 2” has hit the Internet, sending fans’ spidey senses tingling with anticipation.
If the two minutes and 48 seconds of footage are crammed with that much action, how can New York’s most famous superhero possibly make it to “Amazing Spider-Man 3” in 2016?
“It’s been ten years, what have you been up to,” asks Dane DeHaan’s Harry Osborn of his childhood friend, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield)..
“I do some web design,” answers Spider-Man’s alter ego.
Cut to the CGI scenes of Spidey having a blast swinging across the Manhattan skyline on his webs.
His fun doesn’t last long, however, as (count ’em) three villains battle for screen times. The new baddies include the electricity-wielding Electro (Jamie Foxx), the walking tank known as Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and DeHaan’s glider-riding villain who seems to be a new version of the Hobgoblin, a character that was played by James Franco in the Sam Raimi-directed “Spider-Man” trilogy.
(Not to be confused with the Green Goblin, who is the criminal alter ego of Harry’s dad in comic-book lore.)
The trailer shows that Osborn’s company OsCorp has Peter Parker under surveillance – with the ominous implication that they know his web-slinging secret. Not to mention the other ominous implication that Parker’s girlfriend Gwen (Emma Stone) may be in mortal danger … again.
“You wanted to be the hero, now you have to pay the price,” warns Electro.
Filmed entirely on location in New York, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” hits theaters May 2, 2014.
It’s a sequel to the 2012 reboot that earned $752 million worldwide, a box office haul that caused Sony to announce “The Amazing Spider-Man Part 3 and Part 4” for 2016 and 2018 even before the latest installment’s release.
