Yesterday we saw the first promo pictures from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and now Sony just uploaded the first trailer. And yes, we were refreshing Sony’s YouTube page all morning to get to this clip as soon as it was released. #FirstWorldBloggerProblems.
Here’s the newest synopsis. As with the Marc Webb interview, they’re really trying to stress that OsCorp is the overarching villain here.
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 greater 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 realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2nd, 2014.
