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.
