Sony have been hyping up this trailer all week like it was the biggest event of the year. Good for them. I suppose they need to make sure people are hyped for the second Totes Amaze-balls Spider-Dude film after the first one disappointed many. I enjoyed the first film, although pointed out just how much of it was pointless and merely repeating stories we’ve seen already. Where the film really got into its swing (badum-tish) was when it was focused on Spider-Man himself, something Andrew Garfield pulled off well. So, after the jump is the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Tell me what you think in the comments, or something.
Now, something interesting about this trailer… There really isn’t much Electro is there. Why do I get the feelign that Electro has been a bit of a misdirect to take our attention off the Green Goblin, who’s clearly in the film predominantly. This trailer even focuses mostly on Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) who seems to be putting on a very evil voice. And what is that at around the 1:15 mark? Do I spy vulture wings and Doctor Octopus’ tentacle arms? Why yes I do. Here’s a thing that’s instantly struck me. How would Spider-Man not know he’s under surveillance? Surely his Spider sense would tingle just a little? Anyway, seems like a fun action romp, if a little over crowded with villainy. We’ll see when the film is released next summer.
