Amazing Spider-Man 2 International Posters: Times Square Showdown

Published 9 months ago by

A handful of sites got new posters for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and you can check them out below – just CLICK for the full sized versions.

(Did you spot the Green Goblin on that Times Square monitor in the final poster?)

The posters fit in with the initial banner for the film (Check that out below) which revealed that this second chapter in this rebooted take on the Peter Parker/Spider-Man mythos wouldn’t just feature the electric-powered villain Electro (Jamie Foxx), but also a new version on the Green Goblin (alter-ego Harry Osborn this time, played by Chronicle star Dane DeHaan), as well as a mech-suit version of The Rhino (played by Paul Giamatti).

Oddly enough, Sony has paved the road of this Amazing Spider-Man franchise so far ahead (up through 2018, officially) that there’s more excitement for what’s to come than what we’re getting with Amazing Spider-Man 2. If you haven’t checked it out yet, here are the confirmed (and rumored) headlines about the future of the franchise

  1. Example of poor design: https://twitter.com/LLCdesign/status/420582205090324480/photo/1

    • I love the second poster and the third is pretty cool but I have to admit, it’s kinda weird that they also used the exact same shot of Electro for each poster. Kinda annoys me to be honest aha. Anyway, Foxx looks awesome as Electro, really can’t wait for this movie.

  2. I still doubt the “Norman Osborn Green Goblin in Amazing Spider-Man 3″ headline is accurate at this point. All we’ve heard so far is that Norman’s character is getting an “unorthodox introduction” in the second movie which, given the fact that this new version of the Spidey mythos revolves heavily around Peter’s parents’ backstory, may simply mean that we’re introduced to Norman on his death bed while most of his role in the story is in flashbacks in the following movies.

    • My guess is still revolving around Harry’s Goblin failing and Norman shocking everyone with his return from the deathbed we’ll see him in, disowning Harry due to his failure to stop Spiderman and transforming himself into the Ultimate Green Goblin before killing Gwen at the end.

      This could lead Harry down the anti-hero route for future movies and still set Norman up as the Goblin.

  3. I’m putting my money on the idea that we’re being misled on purpose.

    Whether you liked/hated IM3, they really pulled the wool over our eyes with that one, and showed us that movie companies can truly have the one up.

    Sony has been so seemingly transparent about this movie, dumping out so many easter eggs so soon, that I’m expecting to be surprised.

    I would personally bank on this battle that we’ve already seen so much of happening mid-movie, and there being far more. Otherwise, it’s gonna be pretty stinking anti-climactic if you ask me.

    So, I hope I’m right and that there’s so much more to this story than what we’ve been fed.

  4. Given how they’ve positioned OsCorp as a sort of shadowy umbrella linking various plot threads together, I don’t think Norman Osborn will be the one to suit up – logic and these pictures tell me he’ll just be the guy pulling the strings and orchestrating the larger plot developments. Maybe he’ll don the costume later on, I dunno – but not in this movie, I think.

    Also, forgive me if this sounds like a stupid question but… in the large poster why is the Rhino some sort of giant mecha? I was under the impression based on the trailers that he’d wear a suit rather than pilot some sort of Jaeger. Or will there be both?

    • The initial hints of a mechanical suit had led most to speculate that it would be similar to the Ultimate version of the character, which basically has the same general design as the original but is robotic in nature. What has been shown so far in terms of footage, though, seems to imply it’s an actual robotic rhino rather than a humanoid exoskeleton. I’m personally okay with both (the original concept is so silly I doubt it would translate well to film), but there’s still a somewhat vague possibility we’ll see it do some kind of Transformer switch between forms.

      • Giamatti himself hinted at more than one version of the Rhino suit and that it will be upgraded over time so I assume (as I’ve said multiple times on this site already over the last month or so) that he’ll end up inside a bipedal exoskeleton similar to the loader in Aliens.

        • Sorry, hadn’t been keeping up here much so I missed quite a bit of discussion on the Rhino bits when it came out… thanks. It looks promising by the sound of it.

  5. I really like the one where Spidey is high up in the air. My only concern is that these posters look really cartoony. Idk what it is.

    • To me that’s kind of a plus, honestly. I think they’ve learned from The Avengers that audiences are fine with a superhero movie that doesn’t feel “real” in proper terms, but rather looks and feels like an extended, Hollywood-budget Saturday morning cartoon. There’s nothing wrong with that, and it’s certainly tons of fun.

      • Except the poster doesn’t look as clean as Hollywood budget would suggest.

  6. did they really have to use the same shot of electro for ALL THREE posters? that’s just pathetic, how about some bloody diversity?

    • I guess that was the best shot they had of him that conveyed what they needed.

      • They made him black. Diverse enough for ya?

  7. The first two posters look great, but I truly hate how it’s just the same pic of Electro in each one, and how the third has the same pic of Spiderman from the first wallpaper they released. Talk about lazy marketing.

  8. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks a lot
