Consider me impressed. Not only did we get the full, near-minute long The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Superbowl spot yesterday, we also got a new, villain-centric trailer for the sequel. As I said, consider me impressed… and is it just me or does that shadowy gentleman with the cap and ominous voice just scream Doctor Octopus?
First up, here’s the Superbowl spot:
Second up, here’s the new trailer, dubbed Villains Unite:
The official line for the film 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.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is release globally on 2nd May, but lucky UK folks, like myself, get the film on 18th April.
