New Poster For THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Pays Homage To A Classic Comic Book Cover

Sony have released a new promo poster for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and it pays homage (though not particularly well as it recycles a lot of old images, apart from one of Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn) to John Romita Sr.'s classic issue #121 "Turning Point" cover. Check it out!

By Josh Wilding - 4/8/2014

In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), 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 about 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.

Pasto - 4/8/2014, 10:13 AM
Whatever happened to Zauri? Did he get banned?
NovaCorpsFan - 4/8/2014, 10:15 AM
Lol @Pasto. I scrolled straight down to the comments and read that, then burst out laughing.
quasi95 - 4/8/2014, 10:15 AM
that is terrible
Highflyer - 4/8/2014, 10:15 AM
Ha! I see what they did there..
Pasto - 4/8/2014, 10:15 AM
I'm honestly baffled at how terrible this is.

I'm laughing, because I'm concerned.

What a horrible execution!
quasi95 - 4/8/2014, 10:16 AM
I applaud them for trying but wtf this poster is poorly done.

"Secrets have a cost, the truth does too"

What a shitty line. It just sounds vague which dumb people with think that makes it sound clever.

[frick] this movie

This looks like god-awful. Official poster? It is reminiscent of something I did in my 1st year in graphic design.
JoeMomma29 - 4/8/2014, 10:19 AM
Yeah that looks horrible!!!!!!
MrSotoMan - 4/8/2014, 10:21 AM
Even though it is awful

this is hinting towards a specific moment in the movie.
Scarilian - 4/8/2014, 10:21 AM
I came here expecting a poster similar to 'The Night Gwen Stacy Died' - given we've seen Goblin holding Gwen in the trailer so the scenes are already their... but this just looks terrible
Turk - 4/8/2014, 10:22 AM
Worst poster I've ever seen.
SpiderFraud - 4/8/2014, 10:22 AM
Points for trying..lol.
JJJameson - 4/8/2014, 10:22 AM
WOW. Nice cover homage. It gave me goosebumps.
DrDoom - 4/8/2014, 10:22 AM
DudeGuyMan - 4/8/2014, 10:23 AM
Wow. Sony couldn't be more transparent. Why don't they just change the name to Gwen Stacy Dies: The Movie?

crawley - 4/8/2014, 10:23 AM
@Yossarian I would watch that movie, what is it?
Dotanuki - 4/8/2014, 10:23 AM
Good lord, what an embarrassment.
JoeMomma29 - 4/8/2014, 10:24 AM
@ Dudeguyman

"WOW. Nice cover homage. It gave me goosebumps."


Hang in there man, we know that feel.
MrChuff - 4/8/2014, 10:24 AM
That's astoundingly bad...right up there with that fvcking awful poster Fox shat out for The Wolverine in terms of the "someone got PAID to make that?!?" reactions.... http://latino-review.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/NewPoster-The_Wolverine.jpg
Pasto - 4/8/2014, 10:25 AM
Admitting is the first step.
MrMartinMarvel - 4/8/2014, 10:25 AM
Jesus, did they even try?
JoeMomma29 - 4/8/2014, 10:25 AM
Wait I just look at it again and yup it is still $hitty!
Pasto - 4/8/2014, 10:26 AM
*Turns on Zauri vision*

This is still shit.
Spidey10 - 4/8/2014, 10:26 AM
that is not a good homage poster but people that I know that has seen the film says its really really good...im actually going to the screening a few days before it comes out on the 30th so im hoping to be pleasantly surprised
JoeMomma29 - 4/8/2014, 10:26 AM
I would like to see a pic of the person who approved this marketing piece.
BillyM67 - 4/8/2014, 10:26 AM
Lost interest in Spiderman after the 3rd original movie, which wasn't great. Liked the reboot, but didn't think it was anything special. I'll watch this when it hits HBO, unless my son wants to go see it.
Pasto - 4/8/2014, 10:26 AM
[frick] a pic, I want their address.
JoeMomma29 - 4/8/2014, 10:26 AM
@ Pasto

LMAO!!!! Zauri vision.........
SuperCat - 4/8/2014, 10:27 AM
Not feelin' it.

Spidey10 - 4/8/2014, 10:28 AM
BRUCE LEROY!!!!!!!!!!!
Doopie - 4/8/2014, 10:28 AM

JoeMomma29 - 4/8/2014, 10:28 AM
