Electro Attacks NYC in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' New Years Promo
"Yo Sparkles!" Welcome to 2014! Sony is kicking off the New Year with a bang by being the first with a new promo. Spider-Man was part of the Times Square New Years Eve countdown ceremony in New York City (here's a teaser) and as part of the event they released a brand new "exclusive" teaser for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The footage, now online in high def below, shows the villain Electro, played by Jamie Foxx, attacking Times Square and of course some shots of Spidey swinging in to save the day. There's a quick glimpse of the Rhino-bot snapping shut, but it's mostly this attack scene and that's about it. Oh and Stan Lee. This isn't the kind of all-out promo I was expecting, but if you want new footage have at it.
Here's the New Years promo for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, introduced by Stan Lee:
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.
