Electro Arrives Viral Website Hidden in 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Trailer
Electro Arrives on New Years Eve. And he's not going to be happy. Hidden in the trailer (see above shot at 2:08 into it) for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that just arrived last week is a viral URL for a website. It took fans a week to discover the URL, but SuperHeroHype spotted it and wrote about it. The site, titled Electro Arrives, currently shows Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn looking at a countdown timer and nothing else. The countdown ends around New Years Eve, which links to the Spidey promo happening in Times Square. Which means Electro is going to show up ("arrives") and blow that place out - awesome. Right as Spidey swings in, I bet Electro will show up too and black out Times Square. This should be fun.
Here's a screenshot of the ElectroArrives.com website, currently showing just Osborn looking at a timer:
We'll update with another post once that countdown timer runs out, currently at 20 days - New Years Eve.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is directed by Marc Webb and written by Jeff Pinker, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds, life is busy between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can't come quickly enough. Peter hasn't forgotten the promise he made to Gwen's father to protect her by staying away, but that's a promise he just can't keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past. Sony will release Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theaters next summer on May 2nd. Watch the trailer.
