If you thought we’d seen pretty much everything there is to see from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with the flood of trailers and TV spots over the past couple of months, then think again. As the superhero sequel gears up to swing into cinemas, Sony has now dropped two clips from the follow-up to the 2012 reboot, which you can check out below after the official synopsis….
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. 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, Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
Update - And just in case those weren’t enough, here’s another clip…
