Amazing Spider-Man Banner

Can Spider-Man come out and play? As usual, in-theater marketing beats online marketing to the street and thus we have to start with these low quality images. The first official trailer for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 sequel arrives on December 5th next week, and it's likely Sony is waiting until that lands to debut this online. In the meantime, a fan has taken a few photos of a brand new promo banner on display at a movie theater ("in Red Rock casino in Vegas") showing Spidey (Andrew Garfield) and what looks like three villains: Electro, Green Goblin (aka Harry Osborn) and Rhino in some kind of mech suit. Take a look!

Update #2! Here is the full high res banner as found by ComingSoon - click for a HQ version of the image:

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Banner

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. Trailer next week.

Three villians? Yikes.

Who's Who??? 2 things need : Large Amount of Money and At Least 2:30 Running Time

First, why was the Beast Wars Transformers theme song playing in my head when I looked at Rhino? Second, what happened to Electro's costume they showed before now he is just some random dude in an uninspired hoodie in this poster? Third, WHAT THE HECK IS GOBLIN DOING IN THIS MOVIE!? Couldn't they save Green Goblin for the third film they already have Electro! Nope this is going to be a mess. I don't know how and why they are even attempting or thinking of doing the Sinister Six later into TASM, unless it was broken into different parts maybe but as one film no.

Charlie Hard on Nov 29, 2013


Welp, whatever excitement I did have for this movie is quickly leaving.

Chazzy on Nov 29, 2013


Yeah I told you they, they being sony, needed some new, and by new I mean a guy who directed one thing, so that they can force them to do exactly what they make money. They have a limited hold on the rights and they are gonna ring that rag until it drips no more. That is why Spidey needs to revert back to marvel. Granted they to want to make money off him but at least he would be home.

Jimmy Love on Nov 29, 2013


The only good thing I can say about this movie so far is Spidey's costume looks awesome.

Charlie Hard on Nov 29, 2013


yeah I got a bad feeling about this

Danimal on Nov 29, 2013


Oh no... This is not what I was expecting for the sequel....

Fidel Reyes on Nov 29, 2013


Electro looks like Dr. Doom from the awful Fantastic Four movie.

mooreworthy on Nov 29, 2013


im getting bored of people in metal exo suit...things.....i assume thats what rhino is gonna be with giamitti in it?! wasn't expecting a metal rhino tbh?!? as for electro...well infamous ps3 game?!? and if goblins in it also.......hell, why not chuck in sandman,hobgoblin and venom for good measure! ha horrible feeling this is gonna be a mess....only way they can give all thos characters enough time and build the characters up is a 2 1/2 hr run time...but that ain't gonna happen!

craig on Nov 29, 2013


..... ..... i liked having three villains in spiderman 3 *run away*

OfficialJab on Nov 29, 2013


I have a bad feeling about this!!!

Professor_Bedlam on Nov 29, 2013


is that the Goblins face in the upper right?

Tyrell Antonio on Nov 29, 2013


Yeah, that's the Green Goblin. But recently leaked storyboards reveal that Harry will become Green Goblin/Hobgoblin in the film. If you look close at that billboard shot, you can clearly make out Dane DeHaan as the Goblin. I have faith in this film, I'm just worried about what they're up to with Norman Osborn. I want him as the Green Goblin, not Harry. Having Harry as the Goblin again is pretty ridiculous, but, if they can pull a Spectacular Spider-Man (the two season animated series), which adds in the mystery of you thinking that the Green Goblin is Harry (as mastered by Norman, who broke his son's leg to convince Spidey that Harry was in fact the Goblin, the sign of a true villain), then I'm totally in. This should be infinitely better than that first instalment (which I hated, apart from a few moments peppered throughout it).

More villains is not likely going to make it more exciting. This screams final-scene-with-ridiculous-battle-between-spidey-and-three-villains-at-the-same-time. We all know what that means; overload of too fast and unrealistic cgi, explosions, collapsing buildings, shattering glass and cars being thrown at each other. As soon as they come up with the bystander-with-ear-phones-doesn't-notice-the-havoc cliché, I am totally out...

Nash on Nov 30, 2013


Meh Fox as Electro just isnt working for me.

Jim Dawkins on Nov 30, 2013


You didn't even see him perform as Electro. Quit judging a movie before it comes out...

Ohem F. Gee on Nov 30, 2013


You all obviously lack common sense. It's been said literally THOUSANDS of times Electro's gonna be the main central villain, while the rest are just gonna be in the background and set up for future movies. Rhino's only gonna appear in a couple of scenes, and Gobby's most likely not gonna appear until the very end, and if he does, he's gonna be set up for the third movie. Fanboys using Spider-Man 3 as a scapegoat, listen up: Open your minds and realize it wasn't the villain overload that made it suck, it was the way they were handled. There are lots of superhero movies with a multi-villain plot that turned out great, just look at the Dark Knight trilogy. It's called common sense. Only thing I can say though is that I'm also not too happy with how Rhino looks so far, then again we need a better look in the actual movie...

Ohem F. Gee on Nov 30, 2013


It seems like Goblin is there to only observe the havoc that is happening beneath

ProjectionistHP on Nov 30, 2013


"You all obviously lack common sense." No we don't. If it's true what you say (that Rhino and Goblin are only going to be in the background) then this poster is lacking common sense. Why make a poster that prominently features 2 characters that are only going to be in the background of the movie? That would be misleading the audience.

Nash on Dec 1, 2013


"Rhino's only gonna appear in a couple of scenes, and Gobby's most likely not gonna appear until the very end" There you go...

Ohem F. Gee on Dec 2, 2013


Now everyone is hating the movie, because there is a goddamn banner showing three villains (with no idea what their part in the actual movie). Before when they teased about sinister six beeing in third spiderman, everyone were exited (if I remember correctly, if I don't, then sorry)? So three is bad but six is okey? Gonna wait till trailer till making any expectations.

ProjectionistHP on Nov 30, 2013


Not liking the mecha-rhino tho...

ProjectionistHP on Nov 30, 2013


SS is a team, the banner shows 3 villains working (presumably) to their own ends. Meaning story threads will be all over the place.

Brian Sleider on Nov 30, 2013


I get it when you put it that way. But if they'r going to pull off sinister six, they will have to introduce them to audience somehow at some point of storyarc... Two villains worked in dark knight (imo), lets just hope they manage to make it work here too.

ProjectionistHP on Nov 30, 2013


It doesn't make sense to introduce a lizard man in the first film, then completely shy away from the character of Rhino and turn him into some sort of transformer? For me the great thing about spidey villians is they are great characters. I feel that is why people get so heated when a character isn't treated properly. Like the fuss with Mandarin in IM3 and Galactus in FF. If you're going to do a comic book movie then embrace the source material.

ChrisIlls on Nov 30, 2013


Wow can all if ya shut up .. like calm down. Its said tons of times electro is the main villain ! Those characters are making minor appearances. The rhino has 2 forms he's on 4 when he's charging and on conversation with Spidey then he's the regular ultimate rhino ya wany ...just give it a chance y'all are judging and the movie hasn't even come out and yet this is a poster. Keep up with the movie so you van understand what's going on. And by the end the goblin comes out the dad is dying you know which needs goblin serum and dad is Norman but for that peter DNA is needed wow... This is gettingin interesting And the guy in the shadows well I'll let ya figure it out I don't want to spoil it. There is a very good plot here trust me!

Fanuel Gutierrez on Nov 30, 2013


Look in to sentence construction if you want people to care about what you say.

Brian Sleider on Nov 30, 2013


I see the Internet is still open to all... This is a forum. People are supposed to express views here. Shutting up is not the idea of a forum.

Nash on Nov 30, 2013


Zero interest

Dingo on Nov 30, 2013


...I feel so severely underwhelmed by this film & its forthcoming sequels. Especially after the SHIT & FORGETTABLE 1st installment.

Jorrell Mcdaniel on Nov 30, 2013


Uh Oh!

DAVIDPD on Dec 1, 2013


Let me guess. The city gets destroyed in a big battle. Yawn.

cobrazombie on Dec 1, 2013


The poster surely suggests that that's exactly what is going to happen. It states that the "greatest battle begins" (meh...) and on the left there is debris falling down. Besides the fact that buildings and cities being destroyed is not very original anymore, please for once do it the right way! Meaning we not only see ashes but also a million corpses. Remember Metropolis being leveled in MoS? Why were there no dead bodies on the street? Same with Transformers, The Avengers, Pacific Rim, 2012, etcetera. Come on Hollywood, when a city is destroyed you see people running away and being crushed by debris everywhere. Try doing it a bit more the WWZ-way...

Nash on Dec 1, 2013


Yes, it seems to happen in just about every blockbuster now. It's boring.

cobrazombie on Dec 2, 2013


People whined and complained about Spiderman 3 having too many villians, yet the Amazing Rebootman has three. Makes perfect sense.

TIMtationX on Dec 1, 2013


Don't wine about The Avengers. Don't compare WWZ to The Avengers either. They are BILLIONS away from being in the same ball park!

michael miller on Dec 3, 2013


They can have Spidey zipping around in a bright red and blue spandex onesie with giant white cartooney eyes... but they can't be bothered to follow suit with the other costumes, huh? I put this up on FB, but I'll post it here too -

fungusmonkey on Dec 3, 2013


I'd also try to fix the Rhino costume but honestly... I'm not even entirely sure what I'm looking at there.
