As I mentioned in my post yesterday, when it comes to comic books, I am a fan of everything Marvel. When it comes to comic book movies, I have been let down more times than I can count: Spider-Man 2 & 3, X-Men 2, 3, 4, … shit, all of them after the first one. So when Marvel started doing the movies themselves, I was pleasantly surprised with Iron Man (all three of them), Captain America, Thor and the Avengers. When Sony Pictures decided to reboot the Spider-Man franchise, I immediately thought “Why?!?!?!” It wasn’t like they had a good track record, so why not give the rights back to Marvel and allow them to do it right? Then, much to my surprise, The Amazing Spider-Man exceeded my expectations.
Now Sony has released the teaser trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (below). Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker) and Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) reprise their roles in director Marc Webb’s sequel. This time around, Spidey must face Electro (Jamie Foxx) in battle to protect New York.
After watching the teaser, I’ve gotta say, this is the Spider-Man movie nerds have been waiting for. This movie looks to be spot on with Ultimate Spider-Man, which can only be a good thing. I seriously got goosebumps watching this. If you watch close, you’ll see hints of Vulture, Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Doc Ock — the Sinister 6 is coming (Sony has confirmed TASM 3 will be released June 2016 and TASM 4 released May 2018)!! Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn / Green Goblin is a perfect casting call. My only real complaint is Rhino looked more like a cheap Transformer knock-off, remember the Gobots? Watch the trailer and leave your thoughts below.
