The Spider-Man reboot was first seen as a cynical reboot from Sony, but has now flourished into a pop culture phenomenon. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ hopes to expand what was established in “The Amazing Spider-Man,” while trying to introduce new cinematic villains including Electro and The Rhino. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ also hopes to follow in “Marvel’s The Avengers” footsteps with the introduction of The Sinister 6 to expand the Spider-Man Cinematic Universe.
Sony released the comic book movie’s official plot synopsis that points to Spider-Man and his alter ego Peter Parker’s new challenges. Read the synopsis below:
“We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.”
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ should clean up nicely at the box office next summer, so look out for more promos and trailers from Sony in the near future.
The sequel film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, Chris Zylka, Denis Leary, Felicity Jones, and B.J. Novak.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ will hit theaters everywhere on May 2, 2014, in 3D and IMAX. Also “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ gets an official banner poster(s).
