On Tuesday, December 31 Comingsoon.net posted an exclusive New Year's Eve sneak peek for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," the highly anticipated superhero film which will be released this summer. The comic book superhero helped drop the ball over Times Square in New York City at midnight and the trailer with exclusive content was available online immediately afterwards.
The clip is over one minute and twenty seconds long, and features an introduction by comic book legend Stan Lee who was also an executive producer on the upcoming sequel. The teaser trailer focuses on Peter Parker's (Andrew Garfield) newest enemy, a scientist turned monster named Electro (Jamie Foxx). The action begins to take place in the middle of Times Square when Electro accesses an electrical panel. Spider-Man drops in moments later to help and reveals a new nickname for the villain: sparkles.
The special effects dominate the trailer, from Electro throwing pulses of electricity from his hands to his glowing blue face, the movie will have even more visuals than the original. Spider-Man also swings around cop cars and is thrown in to skyscrapers. He saves a cap from being crushed and clears the area before fighting back to stop Electro. Parker must find a balance between his life and the escalating crime in New York City which all seems to be connected to Oscorp.
"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" will be released in theaters on May 2, 2014. The film also stars Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborne, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, and Sally Field. The Columbia Pictures film will be directed by Marc Webb. For more information check out the official Facebook page.
