Marvel THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Trailer Really Swings! written by Sean Gerber December 5, 2013 Teasers for teasers be damned, as the first trailer for Sony Pictures’ THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 is finally here! Check it out below and then scroll further down for a quick reaction. Right off the bat, it appears this film will at least attempt to redeem the mismanaged mystery of Peter Parker’s parents and OsCorp from the first film. That plot line already feels much stronger this time around thanks in no small part to Dane DeHaan and Chris Cooper as Harry and Norman Osborn, respectively. Since Peter is interacting directly with the Osborn family, we should be able to learn the truth behind his parents’ disappearance once and for all. It is worth noting that Electro, played by Jamie Foxx and billed as the top villain all through production, was downplayed quite a bit in this trailer. Sure, he got in his monologue at the end, but that felt more like a footnote than part of the main plot the rest of the trailer was introducing. Hopefully, his presence and purpose in the film will be integrated much more smoothly into the final film than it was here. Finally, the color palette is blatantly more vibrant in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 relative to its muted predecessor. The days of aping Christopher Nolan are behind director Mark Webb and this sequel is the better for it. The new/old suit looks great, the visual effects are stunning, and the overall aesthetic is beautiful to take in. This looks and feels like a Spider-Man film and one that puts the character on the level of his kin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, whom we one day hope he will rejoin. Bonus question: Did anyone else spot of pair of what looked like Vulture wings in OsCorp? Sinister Six, here we come!

Ron Beek III That little smirk on his face when he asks, “what about Peter?” creeps me out. Michael Lalaian What’s up with Harry’s hair? Both when he’s just being Harry and when he’s the Goblin. Too much product, man. But seriously, I’m hoping this will be my favorite Spider-Man film. The first three are just silly, and not in a good way. The Amazing Spider-Man is by default my favorite so far, but I think they went a little too far with the Nolan inspiration. The best way to describe this trailer is that it may be the most “Marvel Studios”-esque of the licensed characters thus far. That’s a good thing in my opinion. stock Sorry, Michael, I’ll give you Spiderman 3, but gotta disagree about the first two. Those flicks, and X-men are probably the biggest reasons we’re talking on MMM today. Batman and Superman were dead at the time, remember, and then some geeky geniuses said this kind of film could still work. Thank God. But a lot of people, myself included, thought the new Spidey film was too soon, and as far as silly goes….usually agree with you, but…..You got the Rhino (always open mouthed) in a Rhinobot machine, Harry (looking like someone from Andy Samberg’s entourage) as the original Goblin, and Electro, (who looks to be the best thing going for the movie right now.) Silly is as silly does. Michael Lalaian If what you’re saying that the original Spider-Man was one of the most important superhero films of all time, then we’re not disagreeing. I actually just recently made a list of the top ten most important superhero films ever, and it’s on there. What I was referring to in the post above was about my personal tastes and opinion, which is that none of the previous four Spider-Man movies are “my” Spider-Man. I’m hoping that this one will be, but whether or not it is won’t determine if it’s well made or important, which are independent of my opinion. stock Chalk this one up to generational differences, Michael. It was your personal opinion I was disagreeing with, respectfully. The preamble is just my long winded way of setting up the argument. Importance of the films aside, I think they were executed better than the redo. It was “my Spiderman,” of course, but I think they hit on the bigger themes of Parker’s dilemma like youth, responsibility, character, power, and the natural arrogance of power, with a lot more skill than the remake. Plus, the new version cheapened Uncle Ben’s death, IMO, which was its biggest mistake. He leaves Pete a phone message? Anyway, I hope the new movie is good too. No matter what I thought of the previous entry, I still saw the damn thing 3 times! Ron Beek III The wings. The tentacles. The six cells opening. *heart attack* Adrian Edmondson Looks good . Podcast this ! Darren James Seeley Why tease us with Vulture wings and Doc Ock’s harness if if is just set up for the NEXT movie? As much as the masses can geek out over that shot, to me its like having the cart before the horse. Either give us Sinister Six or don’t.
