The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Today, we began running the gamut that is Comic-Con here in San Diego. Across from the convention center, you can see some big banners for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hyping the panel happening Friday, July 19th at 4pm in Hall H. And in addition to those banners, there's also a short video teaser featuring Jamie Foxx as the villain Electro. With a menacing voiceover and some sweeping shots of equipment in the lab of Max Dillon, there's a pretty cool reveal of the electrified villain before a bumper appears directing people to the exciting panel. The good news is you don't have to be here to see it. Watch!

Here's the Electro teaser for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, originally found on YouTube:

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, 2014. Excited?

    Yes! Now I have something to keep me even more excited for the panel when I sleep in line over night to get in.
    • Chris Groves
      I've always thought it would be fun to go to comic-con. Here's hoping it's great.
  • Charlie Hard
    Oh for goodness sakes he looks like Mr.Freeze from Batman and Robin. I know people are going to reply and be like oh it's just an early look but that's what he looks like in this clip. Don't doubt me on that one. His voice is at least descent but not menacing. I don't know why they always have to go for these over the top low villain voices.
      Stay frosty.

      "Cool" story bro
    • Tans
      Pretty much agreed, in my opinion Jamie Foxx......although he's a good actor but....bad choich for Electro (i think he's lips are too big)
      • JudgeMethos
        lol -_-

        IMO Jamie Foxx has had one solid performance in Collateral otherwise its just been shit and mediocrity.

      hey man, you need to "chill out"

      Do you ever post anything positive?
  • electrofan123
    It's not Max Dillon's lab, its obviously some kind of holding unit that has him strapped in.
  • Chris Groves
    The first film certainly had it's ups and's hoping this one is an improvement.
    • Charlie Hard
      The first film sucked.
      • Chris Groves
        I've not had a desire to watch it a 2nd time, that's for sure. But it wasn't necessarily 'sucking' so much that SO much of the film was a re-tread of the 2002 film, it felt like too much of variations on the same ideas and not enough of it's own. This film will be much more in it's own direction, and that is not a promise that it will be better, but I'm at least slightly optimistic.

      Mostly downs.

    The first was poor and suffered from the same banality that Raimi's films did. How can the cartoon work so well and make Parker a character you like whilst the films just keep missing the target.
  • dawko
    How come Sony didn't realize yet that Marc Webb is not the man for the job?
    • Christopher Philip Cinquegrano
      His last names WEBB , they prob figured with a name like that its a slam dunk
  • Mike
    I don't know how anyone can judge a film or the director's ability to handle the material based solely on a short clip. The first film was an awesome and fresh way of rebooting the movies. Likable characters, more grounded in reality and with the sort of humorous and serious mix that these films needs. I think Marc Webb did a great job. And with the exception of Spiderman 3, Raimi's films have stood at the pinnacle of the comic book movie craze. Quite the opposite of sucking.
    • JudgeMethos
      Well, Raimi got pissed (or should I say, frustrated) that the studio wanted more than one villain in part 3. He just wanted Sandman as the main villain but Sony wanted him to include Venom. Thus, Spider-Man 3 became what it was sadly. Sub par compared to the excellent Spider-Man 2 which to me was the best one so far.
    • Cody W
      Agreed, I sometimes see a lot of hate towards Raimis films, I mean ffs spiderman 1 and 2 are what brought in the entire comic book adaptation craze.
    • Payne by name
      "And with the exception of Spiderman 3, Raimi's films have stood at the pinnacle of the comic book movie craze." I have to disagree but their success has unfortunately meant they've spawned plenty of equally empty comic book films.
  • Tyrell Antonio
    What does he say after "You wanna know how powerful I am?"
    • Wafffles
      "Well I wanna know too."
  • I wanted to like the first film but it had so many problems with it, couple of problems was the score was terrible, the film didnt really know what it was, seemed a little rushed, they shouldve kept Spider-Man's identity a secret from Gwen to make it pay off in the end why he didnt go to the funeral, should've picked a better villain and too corny at most times, *Crane Sequence...* Sometimes it had its good parts too don't get me wrong it was fun, I love spider-man so I'm excited to see this film, I know that a lot of villains is a bad thing but its villains we probably wouldn't have seen in the Raimi versions and if written correctly it can be great. So far love the suit, like the casting, love how they got rid of MJ because Gwen Dies, Loving the Hire of Orci and Kutzman solid writers (Star Trek 1 + 2) Loving the idea of the Sinister Six because it's like the Evil Avengers so should be awesome seeing spidey fight all of them at once all of NYC ohh and yeah a bigger budget like 100 million more haha
    • Tyrell Antonio
      man, I really liked that crane sequence even, corny but a cheer moment
    • cobrazombie
      "Orci and Kutzman solid writers." LOL! I agreed with you up to that point.
      • I didn't say they are the best, they are decent writers with a decent track record with a few of their movies and tv shows they have written, they are the type of writers that work with the rare 4 act structures in their films. Interesting to watch none the less even if the movie kinda falls flat that's all I was saying
  • Luis Eduardo Ortiz
    As a fan of the first The Amazing Spider-Man I am strongly looking forward to this movie. I will not judge the movie out of this clip, but I have to say I was expecting Spider-Man footage. Sure it's only a clip for Comic Con and the awesome footage is yet to come, but this is The Amazing Spider-Man 2, not the Shocking Electro. When you give the audiences a first impression of your movie it's crucial that you make it right. Giving us Electro, at least for me, doesn't give me an impression of the movie at all. We don't know anything about this character that's the first thing that's being presented to us. I never got int the whole idea that Electro was the main villain. Hopefully they have made it right and use Electro in a matter that truly serves the movie's plot a good purpose.

    The 1st flick was cool. It wasn't perfect, but it rocked! I know there are higher expectations for this one, but I'm sure Foxx will knock this one out of the park. I wasn't too thrilled with this casting, but then again, I wasn't too thrilled with Rhys Ifans casting as 'The Lizard' either. But, it worked out well! I won't knock this flick without seeing it!
  • I viewed the clip. That's all I have to say about that.
  • Jim Dawkins
    lol it just looks too much like jaimie fox with a lot of makeup.
