The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has a lot riding on it in terms of actually telling the untold story of Peter Parker's past, as well as setting up a much larger Spider-Man movie universe. But before we arrive at the bigger battle to come in Amazing Spider-Man 3, or those villain-centric films centering on The Sinister Six and Venom, we have to actually be intrigued by the story of Peter's (Andrew Garfield) re-kindled friendship with Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) and Oscorp's role in the creation of a new type of super-powered being, Electro (Jamie Foxx).
A new gallery of Amazing Spider-Man 2 images spotlights all of the aforementioned plot elements - with the added bonus of yet another look at the lovely Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. In addition to those pictures, the featurette above explains how The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the greenest production that Sony has ever had.

The vivid colors and overall production design of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, look pretty great - but hopefully some of the more cartoonish or video game-esque special effects seen in the trailers for the film will be balanced out by the darkened tones of 3D viewing. It'll also be interesting to see if the green initiatives for things like smoke effects provide the same level of believability as the traditional (read: less green) methods of creating those effects. Shouldn't be a problem, though.
