Amazing Spider-Man 2 first trailer
Okay so there is a lot of stuff packed into this trailer, but will the movie feel as crowded?
The last time we had a Spider-Man movie with this many villains it led to the entire franchise being rebooted, so it’s a little surprising to see so many crammed into this sequel. Except this time it looks like there may be a good plan behind it and it was mentioned in the first film.
Oscorp seems to be at the centre of all things superpower related. Peter Parker was bitten by one of their genetically altered spiders and now it looks like the company may be responsible for not only these villains, but future ones as well.
In the above still from the trailer you can see what looks like robotic wings and tentacles, which will likely belong to Vulture and Doctor Octopus in future Spider-Man films. This level of planning makes up for a lot of the worries about the overcrowded roster of villains as it seems like Harry Osborn, who will be the Green Goblin, is sort of a ring leader with Rhino and Electro almost as henchmen.
Though it’s a lot more organised than the three random villains from the third Sam Raimi Spider-Man movie, it is a little disappointing that Jamie Fox’s Electro doesn’t seem to be the main bad guy despite being at the centre of the ad campaign.
Dane Dehaan’s version of Harry Osborn has apparently skipped his dad to take on the title, which could mean that this time it will be the father avenging his son rather than the other way around. The big question is which one will kill Gwen Stacy?
There have been a number of other interesting sightings in the trailer. The above picture may or may not be Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat nothing is really confirmed about who Felicity Jones is playing.
Then there is this strange part that is a little confusing. If Shailene Woodley was cut from the film then why is she still in the trailer? Maybe she’ll just be ‘girl who almost gets crushed by car’ rather than the much more well known character Mary Jane Watson.
