Forget the guy in the blue and red suit. This new trailer for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is all about the villains.
In our first sneak peak, we got to see a few frames of a maniacal Jamie Foxx as Electro. While we know he'll be the lead evil-doer, we've also been waiting with bated breath for a glimpse at the other two nasties in this installment: Paul Giamatti as the Rhino and Chris Cooper as the Green Goblin (the character previously inhabited by Willem Dafoe and, later, James Franco in the franchise's last incarnation).
First, we get a telling voiceover from Spidey himself, Andrew Garfield, confessing, "Everyday I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save, the more enemies I will make and it's just a matter of time before I face those with more power than I can overcome."
That sounds about right, especially as we watch Electro fly through the air glowing and see the mask slam down on the massive Rhino. Oh, you wanted to see that? No prob. Here are two screengrabs:
We also get a little QT with G.G. as we watch Norman Osbourne tell his son, Harry (Dane DeHaan), a little bit about the immense power Oscorp possesses. However, how that effects Harry's BFF, Peter, sounds pretty ominous. "Not everyone has a happy ending," he says from what looks like a sick bed.
A few other fast revelations: Apparently, Oscorp has had Peter Parker under surveillance for some time and for unknown reasons – yikes! – Aunt May has a secret – double yikes! – and Peter's dad knows some dark truths about some of the experiments going on in the aforementioned always-creepy mega-corporation. This sequel is clearly no joke.
Of course, we also get a little adorableness and banter between Peter and his lady, Gwen Stacy (played by Garfield's real-life girlfriend, Emma Stone), and a little male bonding time between him and his BFF, Harry. Not that we mind.
After all, we're just biding our time until "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" swings into theaters on May 2, 2014.
