The world’s most popular web-slinger returns to face dangerous adversaries in the entertaining sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Marc Webb, who directed the first film returns to helm the second, and Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone reprise their iconic roles as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy. Based on Marvel’s The Amazing Spider-Man comic book series created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, the film also stars Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn (a.k.a The Green Goblin) and Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx as Electro, with Academy Award nominee Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich (a.k.a. The Rhino), and two-time Academy Award winner Sally Field as Aunt May.

Peter Parker is enjoying life being Spider-Man, swinging between skyscrapers and being the city’s crime-fighting hero after the events of the first film. When he is not Spider-Man, Peter spends time with his love interest Gwen Stacy as they sort out their complicated relationship, still haunted by his promise to her father, police captain George Stacy to keep Gwen out of Spider-Man’s affairs. Meanwhile Peter’s childhood friend Harry returns to Manhattan to see his terminally ill father Norman Osborn, the CEO of OsCorp. Before Norman dies, he reveals his illness is hereditary and gives his son a device containing his life’s work.

While busy protecting the city, Spider-Man rescues OsCorp Industries employee Max Dillon during the pursuit of Russian mobster Aleksei Sytsevich, who was trying to steal a truck containing plutonium vials. Thinking Spider-Man and him have become fast friends, Max idolizes him until an accident at work turns him into Electro -- a living electric generator. As Electro destroys the city and puts its citizens danger, Spider-Man comes face to face with a foe more powerful than he. At the same time, Peter and Spider-Man manage to incur Harry’s wrath after refusing his blood transfusion request. Harry had learned from the device that Spider-Man’s blood may be his only hope from his incurable illness.

Peter, who has never given up searching for information regarding his parents, finally finds his father’s hidden lab and realizes after watching the video message that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp. He finds himself facing his greatest battle yet when he has to go against both Electro and Harry, who has now turned into a hideous goblin creature due to the acceleration of his illness. With Gwen’s help, Spider-Man may have a chance at succeeding, but being a hero comes with a costly price.

The DVD and Blu-ray are packed with exciting bonus features including four deleted scenes, a filmmaker commentary and Alicia Keys’ “It’s On Again” music video. Exclusive to DVD is a new public service announcement for the Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO), featuring Andrew Garfield & WWO CEO Dr. Jane Aronson. Exclusive to Blu-ray are nine all-new deleted scenes with commentary by Marc Webb, including the scene “Peter Meets His Father”; plus the six-part, behind-the-scenes documentary, “The Wages of Heroism: Making The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which includes more than 100 minutes of immersive featurettes detailing the heroic efforts needed to bring the film to life.
