Full disclosure: I still haven’t seen The Amazing Spider-Man yet. But after viewing tonight’s Super Bowl trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it’s become apparent that this is a grave mistake that I should rectify immediately, if only so I can fully appreciate everything this sequel has to offer.
Like Jamie Foxx’s tragic Electro, or Dane DeHann’s vaguely creepifying Harry Osborn.
Besides some pretty awesome action scenes and Spider-Man’s signature sassy one-liners, the trailer also offers us a glimpse into the electrifying soundtrack for the film, comprised of music composed by Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer. Judging by what I’m hearing in these clips, me likey.
Andrew Garfield will be returning as the amazing Spider-Man himself, as will Emma Stone in the role of Gwen Stacy – who I’m more than a little anxious about, considering on-set photos of Gwen in a certain highly significant, highly memorable outfit (WARNING: potential spoilers if you click the link. Also a potential for tears and angst if you already know what it is I’m hinting at.)
The Amazing Spider-Man swings into theaters May 2, 2014.
