This Thursday, the new trailer for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise of Electro will be released. While we wait for it, here are three new photos from the film and a new official story description. There are some pretty striking visuals here!
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.
The movie is set to be released on May 2nd, 2014, and I can't wait to see some more awesome footage from the film!
There's also an updated cast list for the film that includes Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jaimie Foxx and Dane DeHaan as well as Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field. An interesting note is that the previously announced Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn isn't mentioned on the updated cast list. Does that mean he's not in the movie anymore? I don't know, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
