Breaking Down the Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer

Updated on July 15, 2014

The trailer for the Amazing Spider-Man 2 has finally arrived and the movie looks awesome. I was a big fan of last year's first installment and I'm looking forward to what lies ahead in this series. With an assortment of villains, more revelations about Peter's parents, and the teasing of future threats, the trailer shows off what could be Spider-Man's best and most epic adventure yet on the big screen.

The trailer begins with Spider-Man falling from the sky until he starts swinging through the streets of New York City in his trademark style. Then we hear Peter talk about how the more people he saves, the more enemies he will make as we see quick glimpses of a mechanized Rhino and the Green Goblin. As we see Electro unleash some of his power in Times Square, we hear Peter say that he will eventually face enemies with more power than he can overcome. Then we see Peter apologize to Gwen Stacy for being late because of a traffic incident where Spider-Man is shown being shot at by a pre-transformation Rhino. We then see Peter reunite with old friend Harry Osborn where Harry reveals to Peter that Oscorp has had him under surveillance for quite some time. As Peter is shown discovering an underground bunker used by his father, we hear Aunt May tell him that secrets and truth have a cost. In the bunker, Richard Parker is shown on a video saying that he discovered Oscorp's plans for his research. As he talks, the man in the shadows from the after-credits scene in the first movie is shown walking by Doc Ock's arms and Vulture's wings before six doors open in an unknown facility, hinting at the Sinister Six. We then see some random shots of electric eels, Electro being raised from a water tank, Harry talking about how they can change the world, and the Green Goblin hovering in front of the Oscorp building entrance. Harry then asks his father, Norman Osborn, "What about Peter?" and his father responds with "not everyone has a happy ending." Then the action begins with Spider-Man swinging a manhole cover at Rhino's head. We see shots of Spider-Man swinging, Electro unleashing bolts of electricity, a plane crashing, and Spider-Man attacking the Green Goblin. We hear some dialogue from Electro saying "soon the world will know what it's like to live in a world without power, without mercy, without Spider-Man," and then an amazing sequence is shown where Spider-Man dodges an intense attack from Electro through what looks like a large electrical plant before the main title and credits appear.

I think this movie looks incredible. I love the fact that they've built this series around a singular storyline that will eventually lead us to the Sinister Six and beyond. We already have the Lizard from the first film, we have Rhino, Green Goblin, and Electro being introduced in this film, and we see the technology already in place for Vulture and Doctor Octopus. There is your potential Sinister Six lineup in the third movie. I'm hoping that in the third film Peter will have to don the black symbiote suit in order to defeat them. Then in the fourth, and maybe final, film we could get a more proper adaptation of Venom than we got in Spider-Man 3 back in 2007. I was skeptical about how they were doing Rhino after the release of the first poster, but now that we've seen him on film for the first time, and after finding out that the Ultimate Comics version of Rhino is a gigantic robotic suit worn by the Russian villain, I'm on board with his portrayal in the movie. I'm also happy with how they're doing the Green Goblin. Having Harry don the crazy gene first sets up the potential future transformation of his father in future installments. It would be a cool role reversal from the original Sam Raimi trilogy which could lead to an even bigger conflict for Spider-Man down the road. Overall, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 could be the best spidey movie done yet and with a bright future ahead of it, things are looking up for the web-slinging hero. I can't wait to finally see the SInister Six.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be released on May 2, 2014.

      The newest trailer makes it look even better. I'm worried about the "too many villains" syndrome that plagued SM3, but we'll see if Webb can pull it off. If he did, he could be the first in history.

      The trailer looks awesome Clopez26, although I really didn't care for the "new" Harry...... And they changed Electro's look from the comic book, that kind of threw me when I first saw it. Thumbs up on your hub.
