'Amazing Spider-Man 2': First official trailer

In the second installment of the "Amazing Spider-Man" franchise, our favorite web-slinger is facing a conundrum.

"Every day I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save, the more enemies I will make," Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker says in the first official trailer for Marc Webb's highly anticipated sequel.

But even worse than that realization is Parker's awareness that "it's just a matter of time before I face those with more power than I can overcome."


In the 2014 continuation of "The Amazing Spider-Man" saga, it looks like that unstoppable power is going to come from all sides.

Not only does Spider-Man have the villain Electro to contend with (played by a seething Jamie Foxx), but there's also The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and the increasingly apparent threat of his friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan)'s family company, OsCorp.

Although "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" was initially supposed to include Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, we can see how that character could've gotten lost in the shuffle and ended up needing to be axed. (As director Webb explained in June, he made "a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship.")

Spidey's "greatest battle" will arrive in theaters May 2, with an additional two films to follow.

What do you think of the trailer?

    Complete Fail!
    This so-called new "franchise" pales in comparison to the previous Tobey/Kirsten franchise.
    Spider-Man 2 was one of the most fantastic sequels in movie history.
    Can't even compare the two.
    It's just another "wonderful" idea for Hollywood to yet again cash in some more!!!

    • Uh, yeeeaaahh....

      That's like saying you prefer the Adam West version of Batman over Christian Bale's. Tobey-Spidey is so dated, man.

      Nice username. You identify yourself with an actor. And couldn't disagree with you more. The Tobey Spiderman was for kids; this is a vast improvement - darker, edgier, better effects, better dialogue, etc.
