‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Final Trailer Preview: A ‘Sinister’ New Era

Published 1 year ago by

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.

  1. Still very excited for this film, but same as Amazing Spider-man and Spider-man 3 I feel like they’ve shown us the whole film except for who dies or doesn’t.

  2. I fee like they keep teasing Gwen’s demise only to pull a fast one on us and have her go to England.

    Maybe ASM 3 is just MJ, then ASM4 has Mary Jane and Gwen in it, with Gwen’s death occurring?

    • If they are going to try for gwen’s death in this, she needs to stay dead or run the risk of audience being manipulated

    • I liked the Sandman part. Peter and the symbiote being played for laughs did not work. It was bad. Green Goblin on a flying snowboard was just dumb.

      • The Sandman story was the only decent thing about that entire horrible trilogy and you could tell they panicked when they realised they’d forgotten the Harry Osborn arc and shoehorned it in then were put under pressure to add Venom too due to fan demand.

  3. Okay, I’ve now got Spidey Overload…. bored now, just release the damn thing.

    They’ve started too early with too much stuff, still looks amazing (lol) and looking forward to watching it but bored, bored, bored with the endless trailers

  4. The only real issue I have, and not just this movie but it seems like the past year, there has been an overload of “trailers for the trailers”. We get a six second to thirty second preview… of a full trailer that comes out a week later. Why not just announce the full trailer and then let that be the thing? I’ve just started ignoring the trailer previews because I just think it’s a dumb marketing move. I just stick to watching the full trailers. Which, just going by the full trailers… this year’s movie line-up looks sick. Very excited for ASM 2!

  5. I think we all know that Gwen is definatly NOT gonna die. If she does, ill be happy to jump back on here and eat mywords. But come on. The actors are dating in real life. There not gonna kill her character off.

  6. Thank you for reinventing the spiderman franchise. I am looking forward to the amazing spider man two. I have one request please do not kill Gwen Stacy. I like Gwen Stacy better than I like Mary Jane and to be honest I am tired of Mary Jane. Please keep Gwen Stacy I like her relationship with Peter and I think they make a good couple. Please Keep her in the franchise for ever long it goes and I hope this email does,t find you to late. In one version of spider man Peter Parker does marry Gwen Stacy. If you have to have Mary Jane in the story let her have a small role. Great job Emma Stone you are fantastic. Thank you to the producers and the team of the amazing spider man franchise. Please do not kill Gwen Stacy Let her stay with Peter. Thank you
    PS: IF you have the time to see Arrow do and say hello to Stanley the creator of spider man. Thank you
