We've already had some details on the score from Marc Webb, which was composed by Hans Zimmer with The Magnificent Six (Pharrell Williams, Johnny Marr, Michael Einziger, Junkie XL, Andrew Kawczynski, and Steve Mazzaro) and how the film will include a new song by Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell and Hans Zimmer called “It’s On Again.”
While this list of track titles does seem pretty innocuous , between this and the extended preview footage we've seen, there are certain titles which appear to telegraph certain plot points. Here's the full track list for the soundtrack to The Amazing Spider-Man 2:
Disc 11. I'm Electro2. There He Is3. I'm Spider-Man4. My Enemy5. Ground Rules6. Look at Me7. Special Project8. You Need Me9. So Much Anger10. I'm Moving to England11. I'm Goblin12. Let Her Go13. You're My Boy14. I Need to Know15. Sum Total16. I Chose You17. We're Best Friends18. Still Crazy19. The Rest of My Life20. You're That Spider Guy
Disc 21. The Electro Suite2. Harry's Suite3. Cold Way4. No Place Like Home5. It's On Again6. Song for Zula7. That's My Man8. Here9. Honest10. Within the Web (First Day Jam)11. Electro Remix
Disc 2 seems to mostly contain standalone tracks, like "It's On Again," "Song for Zula" by Phosphorescent, "Here" by Pharrell Williams, "That's My Man" by Liz and "Honest" by The Neighborhood. The first disc has the rough overview of the film's storyline, and while they're vague enough to squelch any fan ire, let's zero in a few track titles which appear to hint at some of the film's mysteries.
The track order may or may not point to certain reveals: the disc opens with "I'm Electro," referring to the character portrayed by Jaime Foxx - this points toward Max Dillon's transformation into the electricity-powered supervillain early on in the film.
Further on, "Special Project" could allude to something kept hidden by OsCorp while "I'm Moving to England" is possibly the most specific title on the list. The midway placing of "I'm Goblin" hints at a similar timing for that character's appearance, and "You're My Boy" just might be Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper) talking to his son Harry (Dane DeHaane).
The combination of Zimmer - whose iconic scores for Man of Steel and Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy redefined how superhero movies can sound - and The Magnificent Six has led to some intriguing teases of The Amazing Spider-Man 2's theme. We've already heard the score's propulsive, kinetic quality in the film's trailers, and this extended sampling should tide over die hard fans ahead of the movie's release.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in U.S. theaters on May 2nd, 2014.
