Today we got the first official look at the upcoming movie The Amazing Spider-man 2 as the first teaser trailer was released.

The Youtube trailer is 2:41 minutes long in length and can be seen here:

Throughout the trailer Peter is talking about how their will come a time when he won’t be powerful enough to take down some enemies.

Everything was moving quickly as it looks like the try and compile a lot of things in this short trailer.

First reaction was: wow, this looks amazing. It’s going to have a developed story and not just ‘let’s have Spider-man fight a bad guy for two and half hours’.

There were a lot of cool sequences and I really liked the end of the trailer as we see a little bit of the battle between Electro and Spider-man. It looks like most of it will be in CGI and other special effects, but it looks pretty good right now. It’s hard to judge with a ten second sample.

We do see quite a bit of Gwen and Peter scenes. They obviously do pursue a relationship despite the fact that Peter promised her father that he wouldn’t.

I do have some concerns in regard to the story with Harry. I think they are trying to set up the next movie and with the Green Goblin but it looks like two different things. For starters, it looks like Harry is the villain in this movie, and he’s not. Secondly, introducing this story into this movie might be too much as it already has two villains.

The second thing I didn’t like is that there was no explanation or scenes with the Rhino or really Electro. They should have developed that side of the story more in the trailer since Electro/Rhino are the bad guys in this movie. Perhaps the second trailer will do that, but I had hoped this one would have.

The Amazing Spider-man is set to come out May 2nd, 2014.
