The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer Lays Out Complex Story

Complex may be in the eye of the beholder, but there’s certainly a lot of stuff going on, including a new twist to Peter’s whole adventure by way of his father, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer at least lays out a decent foundation for having some idea of the plot.

We’ve seen a lot of images floating around the internet lately, but the trailer has been a bit slow in coming, and as trailers go, I’d have to say it’s worth the wait.

This isn’t even one that I’m all that excited about, but at least the trailer makes it look like we have some variety to sink our teeth into here. I wasn’t in love with the reboot idea either, which worked out at just about the level of average I expected, but this is where we see if it was worth getting through that.

Let me know what you think of the trailer, and if you’re interested in this one. Is it going to turn out to be worth kicking the whole thing off again?

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
