Another week, another post from the Daily Bugle’s faux Tumblr account to promote The Amazing Spider-Man 2. This time out, we get an interview between the Bugle and Spencer Smythe. Those familiar with the Spider-Man comic books will know Smythe as the creator of the Spider-Slayer robots that are sent to hunt Webhead on a regular basis.
The ‘interview’ reads as follows:
As for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the official synopsis reads:
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 great 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 realise that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
Released worldwide on 2nd May, 2014, we lucky UK folks get The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on 18th April, 2014.
Keep an eye out for the trailer tomorrow.
