Trailer Watch: Amazing Spider-Man 2 teaser

They’re showing all kinds of too much in this teaser trailer, I think, but it looks pretty great… despite the stupid character designs on the villains. (I was one of those people who enjoyed Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man flick quite a bit; the major clunky parts being where they seemed to think they needed to change up Uncle Ben’s death and other bits of canon, just to make it different from Raimi’s version.)

Bonus points: this is the best Spidey’s costume has ever looked in film. I hope Sony never changes the suit again (unless they do the black costume for a movie or two).

Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on May 2, 2014.

    Also a plus? We won’t get a completely unnecessary nearly 50 minutes of origin story. I in general liked the first ASM but good lord we didn’t need all that origin story told again.

    The Rhino in this trailer looks like a crappy Transformer!

    Looking at the trailer, the CGI seems horrible. I hope they fix it before the movie.

    I really liked ASM, and I know I am in the minority of it. The biggest issue I had with it was the rah rah rah moment where all the construction workers work together to move the cranes for a path for spidey to make it to the fight. I cringe every time I see that part. But the rest of the movie is mostly fun, and it FELT like a Spider-Man film. It was pretty solid as a comic book movie.

    This one… I keep nerding out, but I also keep cringing. I am really fearful of another SM3 with too many villains…. and the glimpses of GG look really bad. I may be one of the few who like robo rhino though. And Electro… I don’t know how I feel about him yet… It almost feels like the trailer is 2 movies smashed together.

      As corny as that part was, I felt like it was straight out of the ’60s comics. Which didn’t make it any less cringe-inducing, because it was corny as shit in the comics, too.

    That is one awkward trailer. Way too much for a teaser.

  6. Francis Parsons says:

    All trailers give away the entire movie these days. I would rather hear the premise and a hint at the main problem and nothing else. I won’t watch any trailers because of this.

    We would all be happier if they had just decided to make Spider-Man movies instead of origin stories, but we’ve gotta know where every villain comes from right… And see Peter’s origin again every time they get a new actor… And villian’s gotta die in the movie… And, and… I just want a Maximum Carnage Spider-Man movie before I die, is that too much to ask?
