The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is either going to turn out to be one of the more shocking and surprising part-two sequels we’ve seen in a while, or one of the most disappointing. The film’s production has both teased and invited all sorts of possible big developments for the rebooted Spider-Man universe, and now-confirmed realities like the upcoming Venom and Sinister Six movies are putting even more pressure on Amazing Spider-Man 2 to deliver.

As we inch closer to the May premiere, we’re seeing more and more promotional material being released – seemingly strategically – to tease up certain elements of the storyline, while possibly pushing us away from other surprises that could be in store. And today’s crop of photos is no different.

The pictures tell a story all their own, and raise the following sorts of questions:

  • What is Spider-Man doing in Harry’s slob den? Does Harry know his secret identity?
  • What is it that Spider-Man is retrieving from that webbed-up Rhino?
  • It looks like Harry is definitely present at the creation of Electro – is Harry the “Two-Face” of this story?
  • Is Gwen Stacy about to be in SERIOUS peril? She IS wearing her iconic outfit in that pic, if I’m not mistaken…

As stated, exactly how we go from this second chapter to all the epic events to come in Amazing Spider-Man 3 and those villain spinoff films remains to be seen. While all of these teases are sweet and enticing, as I said, it also puts tremendous pressure on the film to live up to all the things that fans currently have bouncing around in their wild imaginations. We’ll see how it goes.
