‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Trailer #3: Peter Parker’s Enemies Multiply

[TRAILER REMOVED BY STUDIO REQUEST.]

-

Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was assembled to function as more than a simple continuation of the (tweaked) Peter Parker superhero origin story recounted in its predecessor (starring Andrew Garfield as the webslinger); the sequel is also a stepping stone for an expansion of a live-action Spider-Man universe that will include spinoffs and additional sequels alike.

That’s the reason for why the film’s trailers have been jam-packed with content – the rise of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) continuing to pursue an ill-advised relationship, the mystery that is OsCorp and its connection to Pete’s biological parents’ disappearance – and yet still haven’t been able to fully touch base on certain pivotal subplots (see: Pete and Gwen preparing to head off to college, Pete rekindling his friendship with childhood pal Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), and so forth).

After sitting through the first theatrical trailer and the Super Bowl preview, you might be hesitant to watch any more Amazing Spider-Man 2 clips, for fear of spoiling too much fun ahead of time. Fortunately, the latest trailer doesn’t spill any additional secrets, nor provide new intriguing tidbits or secrets from the sequel, but instead splices together scene excerpts and footage already featured in previous Spider-Man promos.

That may not sound exciting to hardcore fans who’ve viewed every Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer, clip and/or featurette released thus far, but really – at this stage, do any of you truly want to know that much more, ahead of sitting down to watch the actual movie?

Director Marc Webb went through some growing pains while making the first Amazing Spider-Man installment, as a result of him being new to the world of big-budget filmmaking (and maintaining his creativity within the Hollywood studio system). However, with the sequel, Webb’s direction and visual sensibilities appear to be more confident and refined; between the vibrant colors and improvements in shot choice selections from cinematographer Daniel Mindel (Star Trek Into Darkness), this film certainly looks like a proper living and breathing cinematic rendition of the Ultimate Spider-Man comic book universe (as our editors discussed in a recent trailer breakdown video).

Question is, will Webb and his excellent cast be aided or let down by the Amazing Spider-Man 2 script, considering just how many balls writers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci (Star Trek) and Jeff Pinkner (Fringe) – who drew from James Vanderbilt’s (White House Down) initial draft/story treatment – had to juggle, in order to deliver a satisfying stand-alone narrative. As ever, we’ll hope for the best, especially with our expectations for the future of this franchise riding so much on what happens with the second chapter.

Be sure and let us know in the comments section what your current outlook towards the Amazing Spider-Man sequel is, based upon your impressions of the footage that’s been unveiled thus far.

  1. Still can’t bring myself to watch this rebooted version. Didn’t see the Amazing Spiderman…and will definately skip this one. Bring on Capt 2, and the rest.

    • The first one was okay… as Jane would say “as far as excuses go, it’s NOT bad”… but yeah, a bit redundant when compared to Raimi’s first movie.

    • I don’t understand what is it that prevents you from seeing the reboot, but I’d suggest you give it a shot. ASM is nothing groundbreaking, but I really enjoy the fight scenes since spidey seemed much more agile comparing to Raimi’s trilogy.

    • The Amazing Spider-Man is much more like the comics than the original trilogy. I don’t get why people don’t like it as much. Andrew Garfield plays a better Peter Parker, the visual effects are better, and it’s so much more believable.

      • not that much better

        • Sure, but better nonetheless.

        • A lot better.

          Like, we finally got a proper Spider-Man movie.

          • meh, not really. If y’all going to b**** and moan and Internet troll about whose better and what not, then your still a non-functional human being. both are different but you got to respect Rami’s films [I didn't say you have to like them] but they did set the ground work for every film afterwards, and TASM is just so-so. its not that good as you and fans of the reboot make it out to be, however its not that awful either.

            Personally I like Rami’s spider-man and spider-man 2 better. Toby McGuire capture the essence of Peter and his spider-man while not joking around, was still a fun incarnation of the character, his origin story was done better and rang more true to the comics. even the “corny” bits are freaking true to the comics and source material. I like to see these incarnation as just that, an incarnation. Hell, I herd some rumors going around that they might be making a live action spider-man tv series. If thats true I’d watch that rather then TASM 2.

            I Honestly find this film to not really have the “over stuff ” characters but just not really interested in these incarnations, they kinda are boring, plus nothing beats DaFoe heck I’d like to see DaFoe and DaHaan team up.

      • I wasn’t the biggest fan of the cartooney skylines of New York. I get he was trying to make it a lot more colorful and vibrant, but it came off as the visual effects just not being finished. Other than that, everything else was gorgeous.

      • It’s much more like the Ultimate series and not the 616 version. It sorta follows the 616 but mostly the Ultimate series. It follows the comics a bit more than the Sam Rami series but Webb’s is not the best adaption of the comics IMO.

      • Um, not it’s not. I’ve read the comics for years, and I’ve never seen Peter portrayed as a rude hipster who is a complete jerk to his aunt.

      • “much more like the comics” is such a broad statement. What comic arch are you referring to? Their sources are ULTIMATE spiderman, not the actual Amazing Spiderman comics. This movie is based off the worst comic arch of spiderman, not to mention that the writers on board are so lazy. I hear they literally planning to have the “alien” symbiote apart of Oscorp! Shoot me now.

      • Because people hate change and can’t let go of the past.

        Seriously though, if people refuse to see it because it’s “redundant” then they never watched any of the first three movies more than once.

        And if they flat out refuse to watch it for any other reason, then they seriously can’t consider themselves real Spider-man fans…and then it would be hard to say why they should be so offended that they will refuse to watch the new one.

        It’s like a snooty paradox!

    • Give it a chance it might surprise u

    • A reboot is a reboot no matter what it is. People complain about all the remakes/reboots but when it comes to TASM, it’s okay because it’s a “better version”. Sorry people, but it’s still a reboot. I watched TASM and even though it’s a better version of Spiderman, that’s pretty much it. As far as the actual storytelling it just didn’t hit all the marks for me so to me, it just falls into that “Just another remake/reboot” category

      • The difference though is that TASM is not a remake of Sam Raimi’s Spider-man. Rather, it’s a reboot of the entire series, based off the comics. In that respect, it’s a legitimate enterprise because we’re trying to provide a different telling of the source than was originally given. Naturally there were a lot of similarities in the “origins”, but we have yet to see what’s going to happen in the future of this franchise. From everything the studio is saying, it seems as though it’ll be dramatically different from here on out.

        • It’s still a reboot, just like Dredd was a reboot, Total Recall, and so on. I, personally, don’t mind films being rebooted because most of them will provide a different view but I hate it when people sit there and say “I hate remakes/reboots” but then say, “I don’t mind TASM”. It contradicts their statement, LOL. I like being able to compare both films and be able to hope that they improve upon the original.

      • Methinks you are simply fussing too much over the intangible semantics.

    • @al, So you’d prefer the Adam West Batman over Dark Knight?

      • No, but he probably prefers the original Robocop to the one that got released this week. You know, the way people with good taste do.

      • Nope, Keaton is still the best Batman all day long

    • You’re missing out trust me. The new Amazing Spider-Man is more like the comic and more steady on story. I love the way the movies series may build over 5 or 6 instead of 3.

  2. My family saw the 2nd trailer of this movie when we went to watch LEGO, and they asked me… “Did they cast different actor to play Peter Parker?”

    Apparently they don’t even know Amazing Spider-man existed, cause they thought it was the same as the 1st movie! o_o

  3. Personally, while I do agree that too many villains can really tear a movie’s narrative apart, I have high hopes for this one. I think it will use multiple villains to its advantage and for a Spider-Man movie, a lot of villains in the story just makes sense. Even with Batman. The villains have ties to things close to home for these characters. Really, most villains do but in my opinion for Spider-Man multiple villains can work.

  4. This does look pretty good so far.
    When Electro was announced…that was cool. With Rhino and a Goblin Harry…. they might be pushing it… orr… it might be quit epic…
    The fight sequences are look fantastic…and i like the humor..almost bendis like…

  5. ASM was the definition of average. Won’t ever purchase it, may watch a few scenes when it comes on TV, but that’s it. It was a fine reboot, nothing more. Didn’t get me excited for this one. I think all I (and most Spider-Man fans) want is a proper portrayal of Venom. That’s really all I’m waiting for. I’ll see this one, but my expectations are tempered because of the last one.

    Also, I don’t think the first two Spider-Man movies get enough credit.

    • I agree. I think the first 2 Spiderman movies, although wasn’t visually stunning had a great script. The storytelling of those movie felt like it flowed together rather nicely while the Spidy 3 and TASM had a script that was just all over the place. Still good movies but didn’t live up to the hype IMO

    • You don’t think the first two Raimi Spider-Man movies get enough credit?

      They (as well as the first two X-Men movies) are consistently hailed as being amongst the best comic book movies of all time, despite the fact that if you look at them without nostalgia goggles we wore due to the sense of awe at seeing these characters on film for the first time, they look and feel way too cheesy and hard to watch and the plots were also pretty crappy.

      TASM is like The Dark Knight trilogy while the Raimi Spider-Man movies are like the 60s Batman movie. That’s how I compare them. On the one hand, you have goofy films that make you cringe due to how bad they are and on the other, you have some pretty cool and solid films that look great and entertain from start to finish.

      • Really, you’re comparing Raimi’s Spider-Man to 60′s Batman?? You do realize that the first two Spider-Mans are considered some of the best comic book films ever, right?!? Honestly, have you watched all these movies?

        • @Geo – direct quote from Dazz’s post:

          “They (as well as the first two X-Men movies) are consistently hailed as being amongst the best comic book movies of all time,”

          I think he is fully aware of that. I also think he’s making a personal statement, not lobbing out the mainstream opinion of everyone else ever.

      • As far as the visual portion of Raimi’s Spiderman, I do agree with Dazz in which they did feel a little too cheesy and cartoonish. The thing that sets his apart though, IMO, is the storytelling. Raimi’s, although not the best plots did have some complex storytelling from a writings standpoint whereas TASM has the visuals and some good plots but the storytelling is rather basic with nothing really special. You place the visuals, the current Spiderman version with Raimi’s storytelling and you have a great movie but right now I say they both have their pros and cons which doesn’t really set them apart.

        • Okay, they both have their own qualities. But still inaccurate to compare Raimi’s Spider-Man to 60′s Batman. I wouldn’t even compare Raimi’s Spider-Man to 90′s Batman.

      • TASM is like The Dark Knight trilogy? I must have missed the part where Bruce was hiding from Alfred cause he had a dirty face than pretended he was cleaning chimneys.

      • Wow. Way to overstate your case. No, TAS is the new Robocop. A madden lay average film that is horrible miscast and clumsily written. And this sequel,they snagged the writers of Transformers Revenge of The Fallen, so I’m sure it’ll be great.

        Ram is films did have a bit of cheese to them, but it’s Spider-man, he’s been inherently cheese flavored since the 1960s. It wasn’t camp, just a bit of wide eyed optimism and fun, perfect for Spidey. Not some moody Brit reenacting scenes from Footloose. Seriously, of all film to homage in your Peter discovers his powers montage, and you pick Footloose!? And this is somehow an improvement over the earnestness and heart of the first two Rami films?

        • Oh, but it wasn’t the writers that made Revenge of the Fallen bad, it was Bay, LOL.

      • Gonna have to definitely disagree with you DAZZ…. Raimi’s Spiderman 1 and 2 are way better than TASM. Nothing against A. Garfield cause he fits the awkwardness of Peter well but overall, Spidey 1 and 2 were REALLY GOOD. Those movies are rewatchable almost all the time in my opinion. Graphics are a bit shady but script, acting, and story are great.

        • I agree. I think TASM is good but storywise, it’s not as good as Spidy 1 & 2. TASM has the right character playing Peter Parker/Spiderman and I would take him over Tobey but as far as the story goes, Raimi’s was superior in that aspect. I do have some high hopes that they will improve things in this sequel but it’s also written by people who did Revenge of the Fallen so it might just end up being a repeat of the first film, heavy on action and light on the story

    • “I think all I (and most Spider-Man fans) want is a proper portrayal of Venom.”

      First, I think you are a little vain to think you can speak for all Spider-Man fans. No offense.

      Second, I think you are completely wrong. (If I may be so vain as well lol) I think most Spider-Man fans want to see as many movies with spidey in it as possible. I think this for the same reason that there are hundreds of comic book issues. People want more, and you can always tell another story. So for you to say that Spider-Man fans are just waiting around for a venom is probably inaccurate. Not saying you aren’t waiting around for one but that your premise that most are like you is probably wrong.

  6. I didnt like the first one but I will definitely watch this one! Cmon’ 3 villains in ONE Spidey movie?

  7. i see Slag is in this

  8. looks awesome cant waite.

  9. I’m starting to think Dane DeHaan isn’t the Green Goblin we see in the trailers (correct me if I’m wrong). This Goblin looks very similar to Peter; I’m starting to suspect it is a clone of his (or a long-lost twin brother?). In the comics there was a ‘Clone Saga,’ in which Peter had a clone of himself named Ben.
    What if Peter had a duplicate of himself locked away at OsCorp that they’ve tested the Goblin serum on?
    I know fan-based speculations get old, but the Goblin in the trailers looks so much like Andrew Garfield to me.

  10. The Green Goblin looks more like Harry Osborn rather then Petter Parkers clone or brother I was really hoping for a Real Rhino though why does everythin have to be robotic I mean they completely messed up the Electors Outfit, Rhinos outfit and even the Goblin who knows what kind of Goblin Spiderman is going up against in this one doesnt look like the Hob Goblin or Green Goblin to me though

    • +1 Gotta Agree with you brother.

    • ” why does everythin have to be robotic”

      EXACTLY! There is nothing robotic about the green goblin. He has superhuman strength that rivals spider-man’s (10 tons). The only thing robotic about him is his glider and his finger zaps with come from his gloves. However, he does not have a robotic costume. From the looks of this it looks like they are going to have him flying around bare-faced as well.

      • well Rhino is actually a puny a little nerd in a mech suit, in the ultimate version. And Dane dehann looks like he is wearing makeup as the goblin. Fox also resembles ultimate Electro, in that he looks like dr. manhattan. I don’t see anything wrong with them borrowing from different versions of Spiderman lore, I wonder if venom in this film will be more like ultimate venom. In the ultimate universe spiderman’s dad creats the venom suit to cure cancer, but dies in plane crash when he tried to run of with the formula. A lot of scenes in the trailers look similar to that.

    • Well, your absolutely right @Sam Worthington. I mean if I could fight the Jadoon [giant rhino's], then why not? also yeah I love electro’s new hoodie look, his other look, looks pretty stupid and gimmick-y.

      @RadicalSpider wait, there is a rumor of a Live action Spider-man series? That sounds pretty awesome.

  11. This trailer isn’t new, it’s months old. It’s the international trailer which was released shortly after the first trailer dropped. This has been out for quite some time.

    As for the people comparing this to Spider-man 3, shut up please. The problem with SM3 wasn’t ‘too many villains.’ The problem was there was too much going on, too many subplots. It was the result of a bad script.

    You can have multiple villains in a movie and still have it turn out fine. Look at The Dark Knight. That movie had Scarecrow at the beginning, Joker, Two-Face, and Sal Maroni and it was fantastic.

    Spider-Man 3, while overcrowded, was the result of a bad script, studio/director disagreements, and rushed production. Not ‘too many ‘villains.’

    • He’s right. I’ve seen this trailer before. I mean, if it IS the third trailer.. It’s got ALL footage from the last 3 trailers. PASS.

    • Like I said, it’s a combination of footage from previous trailers, including the one you’re talking about:

      http://screenrant.com/amazing-spider-man-2-international-trailer/

  12. Why should I even bother going to see this movie?? Why are they showing so much!! I feel like I know the whole plot already. Sure the visuals will be better but wow they have taken all of the intrigue out of the film. The only thing left for a reason to go see it is the Harry Osborn story line and to see the full action sequences. (And maybe the whole Rhino story which isn’t supposed to be a big party of the story anyways). Get your s*** together Sony!

    • Really? Do tell me the plot! Does Gwen die? Who put her in danger (in the movie, not the comics)? Who is the Goblin? What happens to the Goblin? How did he get made? Does Norman Osborne die? Or nah? Who is that guy walking in front of the Vulture wings and Doc Ock tentacles? What are they doing there already? What happened to pre-Rhino after he shot at Spidey and clearly missed, seconds before Spidey got to him? Did Peter just give the guy in the suit a pat on the head and let him go? If he got arrested or whatever, how did get get back out and get that Rhino suit? It’s clearly two battles! And how does Spidey beat the Rhino? Was that manhole thing the final blow? Or do we wait, cuz there’s more!? How does he actually beat Electro? Will it be an awesome sequence worth watching? (it definitely looks like it!) How many times do they fight? There’s clearly at least 3 sequences that we see up in there. What goes on all in between those sequences? There must be TONS of plot because we haven’t gotten much at all in here. And yet the “only thing left” is the DeHaan plot, and that seems to be the very life and blood of the whole movie that ties it all together. That and the full action sequences alone seem awesome enough to go watch.

      And seriously. All of the original footage combined from all the American trailers, tv spots and international trailers can’t be more than 5 minutes total. And we’re talking a movie that’s probably 120+ minutes long. You’ve seen at absolute most 4% of the entire movie and you complain that it’s all played out and ruined. What a whiny snot.

  13. I don’t know why they just won’t let the green goblin wear a goblin suit, made out of the same material Spider-Man’s suit is made from (spandex?); and let him wear the goblin mask (NOT A HELMET). Don’t let him fly around town bare-faced. What’s with having him flying around in a metal suit and no mask? It’s just like raimi’s “green” goblin in Spider-Man 3 when Spider-Man and harry teamed up to fight venom and Sandman. I thought this was a reboot.

  14. At least Andrew Garfield gets to say lines and it looks like he’s no longer being directed to do the “Power Ranger” syndrome from TASM — you know, bobbing your head to make it look like you’re talking.

    This movie lost me with the second trailer. Electro was a good guy… then Spidey forgets his name and becomes a villain? Real profound.

    • Because Electro in this film has like low self esteem or some crap, so all those emotions he kept bottled up is unleashed after getting new powers. what really worries me is the amount of footage theyre showing us. alot of it seems a bit too important to just edit into the trailers. Spiderman 3 was over hyped with large amounts of footage before release and that film didn’t sit well with everyone.

      • “Because Electro in this film has like low self esteem or some crap, so all those emotions he kept bottled up is unleashed after getting new powers.”

        Still seems kind of silly.

  15. I liked TASM, but IMO it’s still playing catch up to the Raimi films. Hopefully, TASM2 will show us something better than the first. I have faith that this film will also provide us with decent spinoffs like venom and SS. Which I’m sure is the reason why they even decided to reboot the franchise altogether. Well, that and because it’s a billon dollar franchise SONY wasn’t gonna sit on for too long.

  16. This isnt the official 3rd trailer right? Its basically the same as the first & second trailer. theres absolutely nothing new here. All they did was rearrange the scenes.

  17. The thing with the first Spider-Man movies is that it’s memorable only because we haven’t seen anything like it before. Watching those films now, I mean, they’re beyond corny. It’s just cheesy. Of course Sony isn’t expecting all of Raimi’s fans to switch lanes with one movie, but everything about Marc Webb’s version, from the casting to the story of the franchise, is just flat out better than what Raimi did. TASM2 is looking to be the best Spider-Man movie by miles. A Spider-Man who cracks jokes, some ridiculous action sequences, the whole Oscorp conspiracy, the death of Gwen Stacy. I hate it when people try to hate on one version for the other, but this movie is going to demolish every single Spider-Man movie before it.

    • “The thing with the first Spider-Man movies is that it’s memorable only because we haven’t seen anything like it before. Watching those films now, I mean, they’re beyond corny. It’s just cheesy.”

      It’s cheesy to you because to you something better has come along, and that something is The Amazing Spiderman films. This is what I have been saying for years when it comes to the x-men and wolverine movies. They are memorable and people like them only because a film for such characters have never been done before, and they are the first. However, I firmly believe that the characters I have memtioned can be and hopefully will be better portrayed on film as compared to the weak stuff we have been getting from Fox and the like. Some people can see things ahead, and don’t need something new to come along to compare it with to see that what they got is really not that good. It’s the people who can’t see ahead that argue with the people who can see ahead because they have their creative minds close.

    • I don’t know about that. Saying TASM 2 is going to demolish Raimi’s films is like saying Dark Side of the Moon is going to demolish Transformers, LOL. Visually, TASM and TASM 2 is miles better than Raimi’s film but when it comes to the plot/story/script, it’s still up in the air. TASM did provide a better version of Spiderman/PP but the story/plot/script fell flat to me. Yes, Raimi’s Spiderman was cheesy at times but when it came to the story/plot/script, it was done right and have a under layer complexities to it whereas Webb’s it more straight forward and nothing really special. Also, need I remind people that the script/story of TASM 2 was written by the same people who brought us Revenge of the Fallen so I am very skeptical right now

  18. TASM is way better than Raimi’s trilogy! Just like Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is the best Superman movie ever! If you like cheesy superhero movies you can have ‘em. Nolan raised the bar with his Dark Knight trilogy!

  19. CGI Looks better now. psyched!

  20. How many times has Spiderman’s origin story been retold in the comics? When I see a rebooted movie, that’s what I think of. I don’t see how people are that dorked out that they have to be stuck on Sam Raimi’s version. It was ok, but geez. Grow up already. Garfield’s Spiderman is far more relatable than Tobey Macguire’s. Really? Webs shooting out of his bare wrists made sense?

    • And a guy who can actually have his entire DNA and physique transformed overnight by a spider who got cooked in a microwave is entirely plausible.

  21. Spiderman has always been my favorite superhero ever since I was a kid. When I saw Raimi’s Spiderman years ago I was in awe. I could finally see my fave superhero in live action. It was great.

    Reasons I love this Spiderman reboot more:
    1: This reboot gets into the mystery of what happened with Peter’s parents. The Raimi films didn’t ever really go anywhere near that story.

    2: I love the chemistry of Garfield and Emma Stone as Peter and Gwen Stacy. I love that they have Peter’s love before Mary Jane in the storyline this time and I can’t wait to see how they do with the death of Gwen. Looking back there wasn’t that much chemistry between Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire except for the famous upside down kiss. Garfield and Stone’s chemistry just seems so real.

    3: Can’t wait to see Sinister Six and how they play that out. Gonna be amazing to ser that story come to life

    • Um, you like that it he reboot gets into one of the LAMEST stories from all of the comics? It was so contrived an awful in the comics, it was best left alone.

  22. Do anybody knows why Mark didn’t give Spidey his ‘Spidey-sense’?
