“Amazing Spider-Man 2” trailer now live

I’ve gotta admit, I’m impressed. It looks like they can handle multiple villains with this story.

  1. I’m not crazy about Elecro’s look, or the Goblin’s hair, but it can’t possibly be worse than Emo Peter.

    From what little we see of Rhino in the trailer, I think I’ll like it.

    Anyone else notice Doc Oc’s pack and Vulture(?)’s wings in there?

    • Yeah, but I’ll be disappointed if they say the Goblin was involved in creating _all_ those villains. That’ll be pretty disappointing…

      • Vulture’s tech makes sense to be there, at least in some incarnations Vulture claimed that Oscorp stole his technology.

        I think Doc Ock also worked at Oscorp in one line, Wikipedia seems to say it’s the Ultimate version.

        While they maybe didn’t create them, they may be trying to copy/clone the tech that they’ve observed in some way (spying, theft, etc)

        • Agreed on Vulture. I guess, for me, Doc is such as interesting concept in his original origin (inventing the arms for work in a lab and having an accident “fuse” them, etc.) that I’d hate to have them turn him into just a guy in a powered harness.

    • I thought they were going to introduce the villains over the next two movies, but this still has potential. And Peter has always tended towards the emo.

      • I was referencing the Spider-Man 3 Emo Peter that was … not so good.
        He’s always been angsty and such, but I think they took it a bit too far in that one.

        I really hope that they aren’t falling into the same Spider-Man 3 trap by having so many villains together in a single film.

        • Agreed. The only way to introduce them as a group is to tie in their origins, and that can hurt the unique characterization of each. The multi-villain movie also tends to scimp on the other aspects of the film, so that we end up with a good premise for a videogame, but a lousy dramatic experience.

  2. I didn’t see the first one so I don’t know if it wa the same, but just watching that trailer in 720p I have to say that the CGI (specifically Spider Man) is a bit on the “cartoony” side for my taste.

    • Based on the first movie, I’m assuming (hoping) that these are incomplete CGI shots, and they’ll be polished/finished before the final release. This sort of thing happens in early trailers.
