The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Trailer
After two days of me ranting about Spider-Man, I thought I’d be done. But today Sony released the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. *sigh*
Well, I’ve watched it twice. I like the stuff about Peters parents, but I liked it when it was promised in the first film too. It does look like it’ll be more prevalent in this film which is great. The story of Peter’s parents is the best thing this franchise has going for it.
I’m not into what they’ve done to Electro. Electro is my favorite Spider-Man villain. I liked that Spider-Man had to solve how to beat him, because webs wouldn’t stick, and punching him would cause electrocution. Spidey figured out that if he wore rubber booties and gloves he would be fine. It was the perfect combo of the brains of Peter Parker and the fighting style of Spider-Man.
And Electro wasn’t just muscle for Oscorp. He was his own person with his own reasons for hating Spider-Man. The opening VO says “Every day I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save, the more enemies I will make” … but it’s not more enemies, it’s one enemy. One your father made. Rhino, Electro, Goblin… they’re all having their strings pulled by Oscorp / Norman Osborn.
Oh, and at 1:15 in, you can see Vulture’s wings and Dr Octopus arms. I can bet we’ll see those in 3.
Would love to know what you guys think.
