We’ve seen so much footage of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – in the form of trailers, featurettes, and more – that it’s almost hard to believe there’s anything significant left to show us. And yet we know there’s one final trailer to come, as Sony has been teasing its debut for the past week with images of the different villains Spidey (Andrew Garfield) will face in the film.
Today, we not only got another teaser image – this time of just Spider-Man himself – we also got two previews for the final trailer, which we now know will drop tomorrow at 11pm.
The first preview (up top) comes from the official Amazing Spider-Man Facebook page. It has a modicum of new footage and depicts some kind of nefarious interaction between Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) and his father, Norman (Chris Cooper) – though Norman’s still shrouded in shadows.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about the preview are the four little words that appear in the text onscreen: “A sinister new era.” It’s the first time we’ve seen media from Sony and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 explicitly hint at the Sinister Six, which will presumably (fully) appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 3 before debuting in their own film.
The second preview comes courtesy of Coming Soon:
It seems like only a minor variation on the intro of the recently released international trailer. There’s a little bit extra hang-time for Spider-Man, and it feels a whole lot like the hopeful, whimsical Superman movies of yore (“You’ll believe a man can…swing around New York City on synthetic webbing!”).
Other than that, there’s not much to this preview, though it is the reason we have the lowdown on what time the final trailer will hit tomorrow.
Lastly, we have the final teaser image for the final trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Check it out below:

There’s been some commentator chatter about there being too many trailers – for this film and others – and too many trailers for the trailers themselves. Is this a case of there being too much of a good thing? Are fans being far too inundated with media at this point? There’s definitely not much in the way of mystique around this movie (not that there isn’t any), which is not how it would’ve been some twenty-plus years ago for films of a similar ilk.
Then again, no one is forcing people to watch this stuff. It might also be an indication that Sony is pretty confident in the quality of their movie. Let’s hope that confidence translates into excellence on the big screen.
What say you, Screen Ranters? Are you looking forward to The Amazing Spider-Man 2? Do you think there have been too many trailers, not enough, or just the right amount? Drop us a line in the comments.
