Final Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer shows the rest of the movie

I kid, I kid. But seriously, The Amazing Spider-Man 2's glut of promotional footage has gone and potentially spoiled the entire movie. But here I am hypocritically sharing it with you all. The weird thing is, I don't really ...

Only four minutes of Rhino in Amazing Spider-Man 2? That's a good thing.

At SXSW, Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb revealed that the Rhino, played by Paul Giamatti, will only be in the movie for a scant four minutes. GOOD. Three villains is too many, something Webb is well aware o...

Super Bowl TV spots for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 photo
Super Bowl TV spots for The Amazing Spider-Man 2
by Nick Valdez

Remember how we all saw The Amazing Spider-Man and were terribly disappointed with it? Expect all of that to change with its sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In three different videos (one released before the Super Bowl, one during the Super Bowl, and one online), AS2 completely capitalizes on the good will left by its first trailer. The Super Bowl spots themselves tease a very important arc in the comics, but the top "Enemies Unite Sizzle" is the real star of the show. 

Jamie Foxx's Electro looks to be a very compelling villain. Someone who looked up to Spidey, but eventually realizes Spider-Man treats everyone the same. It might be a nice breakdown of how selfish Peter Parker could potentially be as a hero. And if the sequel is truly meant to set up a Spider-verse complete with spin-offs and multiple films, then this is a good direction to go in.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 webswings into theaters May 2nd.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 gets three new posters

I'm in a weird place with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 right now. After its first trailer, I was mostly skeptical but hopeful. After its international trailer, I was a little more delighted. But now that some time has passed and ...

International trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed to, well, spark interest mainly because most folks were worried about how the sequel plans to fit three villains into the film. They were getting flashbacks to the Spider...

First official trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 photo
First official trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2
by Nick Valdez

After The Amazing Spider-Man provided a serviceable first effort given the fact Sony had only made the film to avoid losing the rights, fans have been waiting anxiously to see what Sony could pull off for the sequel. The hype leading up to this has been slightly unbearable as we were treated to several trailer teases, banners that make the movie seem terrible, news of possible spin-offs, and pictures of Spider-Man in funny hats

But now that we have the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, what does everyone think? I'm game for it because Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Dane DeHaan are in it (as Electro, Rhino, and Harry Osborn respectively), and they're fine actors. At least it seems like a good webswing in the right direction.

Besides even if no one likes it, two more Spider-Man flicks are happening anyway. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 spins a web, any size, catches theaters like flies May 2nd.

The Amazing Spider-Man's suit could've looked worse

This Amazing Spider-Man 2 photo has a funny hat

One of the more noticeable problems with The Amazing Spider-Man was that it lacked the goofiness of a true Spider-Man adventure. Andrew Garfield is fine in the role, but he didn't have much to do beyond awkward stuttering or ...

Warning: Possible Spider-Man 2 spoilers ahead

This is a weird one.  It's weird in that it seems to be a medium-obvious spoiler for an upcoming film. But the reason it's a "spoiler" is because it may allude to a decades-old story...Especially for anyone who like...
