By Rohan Patel - 4/23/2014

















 
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.

I'D LIKE TO SEE HE BECOME AN EVEN MORE TO COMIC LOOKING GOBLIN, EVERY INTERPRETATION OF THE GOBLIN HAS ALWAYS BEEN TECHY..I'D LIKE TO SEE A BORN FROM SCIENCE BUT BECOMING IT'S OWN CREATURE ENTIRELY KINDA THING.

HavocPrime - 4/23/2014, 3:35 AM
I think Norman took the cure/venom, as he has similar claw like nails and green splotches of skin like Harry did, but who knows.

Nope, no chance.
charlie2094 - 4/23/2014, 3:47 AM
Shame there won't see Norman as the Green Goblin, hopefully if Harry survives he'll return a bit more like the Goblin we know
Kyos - 4/23/2014, 3:55 AM
Emma Stone is by far my favourite part of this movie! :)
sameoldthing - 4/23/2014, 4:09 AM
It's crazy how easily Green Goblin can be translated to film but they keep dropping the ball.
This goes for EVERY comic book character..the work is already done,the look has already been established in the books.

Movies can tweak the comic look a bit but just follow the look that made the character popular to begin with.
It that simple.

I LIKE TO POST IN CAPS IN HOPES THAT I MIGHT GET HEARD. I AM UPSET THAT COMIC MOVIES ARE NOT REAL, LIKE THE COMICS. EVERY ACTOR SHOULD LOOK DISTORED LIKE A ROB LIEFELD DRAWING. ONLY THEN I WILL BE HAPPY THAT COMPLETELY UNREALISTIC, MAGICAL, MUTATES, MUTANTS AND ALIENS LOOK LIKE THEY DO AS THEY ARE DRWAN BY IMAGINATION AND A PENCIL. ONLY THEN I WILL BE HAPPY. OH WAIT, THEY CALL THEM CARTOONS.

@MrMartinMarvel

I'm not sure. I honestly don't believe Norman is dead, plus Cooper is signed on to return in TASM 3, so I wouldn't rule it out just yet.
HavocPrime - 4/23/2014, 4:19 AM
They say he dies but you never see his body. I'm thinking he faked it and then wanted to see what will happen to Harry if he took the venom, using his own son as a guinea pig is very Norman.

But that is if Norman hasn't take it already though
IMNOTU - 4/23/2014, 4:22 AM
Watched this last night. It's shit. Slow paced, action scenes are in terrible CGI, love story makes me hate both of them, Green Goblin was rushed, Electro is a pushover with no real reason for being a villain, and the ending is terrible. Honestly it makes Spider-Man 3 look like Citizen Kane. Glad I didn't waste my money on it.
TMcFarlaneFan - 4/23/2014, 4:25 AM
Goblin could be so awesome if done right. But his backstory needs changed. While most of the Spider-villains have iron clad origins that make sense Goblin's never has.
The mental leap from Norman Osborn getting enhanced strength to dressing like a Goblin has never been adequately laid out and really can't. A film could reimagine the character and maybe give him more edge than just some jackass 40+ year old in a child's Halloween costume.

Goblin might work best with an origin ripped from old horror books and movies with Osborn literally transforming into a Goblin. Maybe a family curse. An entity that takes over Osborn. And if the Goblin I.D. were passed to Harry it could be the Goblin spirit jumping ship after Norman is killed. Which is essentially the same thing only without tecno babble, costumes and serums.
TMcFarlaneFan - 4/23/2014, 4:27 AM
@BatManiac If Willem Dafoe were younger and played the Goblin w/out a mask it would've been the same really.
staypuffed - 4/23/2014, 4:31 AM
Emma looks stunning.
Great movie.
McNyagano - 4/23/2014, 4:36 AM
Harry was good as the Goblin but his motivations were confusing as hell. Best CBM villain this year so far is the Winter Soldier.
GrimFeature - 4/23/2014, 4:44 AM
I thought this movie was amazing myself. I don't quite understand all the negativity people have been giving it. I found it to be spectacular. Action, drama, comedy were well balanced in my opinion. Definitely far greater than the first one. Garfield makes a great Spidey. Hope anyone reading this who hasn't seen it feels better about seeing it now. Can't wait for the third outing.
Starkasm - 4/23/2014, 4:44 AM
@mcny

Agreed. Both villains in ASM2 were pretty simplistic, but because they were done so well you kind of don't mind. I loved ASM2 but cbm of the year so far is definitely CA:TWS.
Overall, happy though as both Spidey and Cap are in my top 3 favorite heroes.

@Dark

Lol.

CA:TWS 5/5
TASM2 4/5

In a perfect world Marvel could get the rights back to Spiderman and do his world justice and add him to the Marvel film universe. I like what they have done with the suit at least in Raimi's versions the CGI Spiderman looked so much like a cartoon to me. There needs to be a real Professor X to control the world (including me)to stop spending money on lost Marvel properties so they would become unprofitable and rights could revert back to Marvel.
GenerationX - 4/23/2014, 5:04 AM
Only 6 of them are stills from the movie. Thenother 2 are BTS shots
Maniac - 4/23/2014, 5:05 AM
Between Maguire, Dunst and Franco, they make the original trilogy near enough unwatchable for me. All of 3 of them were terrible, especially Tobey. I've never wanted to punch a superhero in the face as much as Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker/Spider-Man.
McNyagano - 4/23/2014, 5:06 AM
@Starkasm

The suit healed Harry, why was he still after Peter's blood? lol He was more into getting revenge and completing his father's legacy. The suit healed him after he took the Spider venom. You're right, I was just too hyped up about the film. Cap 2 is better written and has better villains.
MrSotoMan - 4/23/2014, 5:12 AM
It was a great movie. Very, very surprising for me since I really disliked the first movie.

This is all I wanted to see honestly, a good Spider-Man movie. The whole idea of an origin turned me off the first time around that it just didn't let me give it a chance at all (which I tried but no avail) but this movie was miles better.

I'm happy! Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth yea yea yea!
captainireland - 4/23/2014, 5:12 AM
The Norman pic seems very out of place amongst all the Peter and Gwen photos. Cooper seemed to have potential, pity he wasn't given more to do. Peter and Gwen's relationship was definitely the movie's biggest strength.

yowsaman - 4/23/2014, 5:18 AM
well i had mixed feelings about this movie:

SPOILERS!



i was really stretched out to much the relationship between gwenn en peter... come on.. how many times can you brake up and come back together. it was to forced everytime. alltough they did there best to hide it.

jamie foxx was cool. i really like his acting. electro was really cool when he turned into electro

green goblin... well i dont know. he turned bad to quickly for me. wy not wait with that for Spiderman 3? i had a small spiderman 3 (with tobey) vibe with this movie at the end.

rhino was the coolest in my eye's and he only showed up for the last 2 min. that cgi with the suit was really cool!

the action was pretty amazing in this one when they finaly goth to it. even in 3D. the webslining in slomo is a pretty cool gimmick.
Kyos - 4/23/2014, 5:20 AM
Well, yeah, Harry was going to die from the Osborn curse at some point, but I'm not sure if I'd agree he "was dying", seeing how his father apparantly lived for dozens of years with the illness. He got the news that he was afflicted, made one attempt at finding a solution and after that he went off the rails.

I really wish the character had been introduced in some way in the first movie. :(
Klone - 4/23/2014, 5:49 AM
@BatManiac

Though I am unlikely to share your sentiments for this film, doesn't Harry's entire motivation bring up the issue of Peter being a complete [foo foo] for not helping his best friend? I know why he doesn't what to, cause of side effects and blah blah, but still!? Or is the scene handled in such a way where he doesn't come across as the Amazing Spider-[foo foo].
Klone - 4/23/2014, 5:55 AM
@Ramon

Do you honestly think they will actually cast 16-17 year old actors around the time of inevitable 3rd reboot?
Comicbookguy543 - 4/23/2014, 5:55 AM
I remember reading a while back something about Normans head being kept in a containment unit, I can confirm that doesn't appear in the film....maybe it was cut but it did sound quite far fetched anyway!
SpideyQuad - 4/23/2014, 5:56 AM
What in the world is a (foo foo)?
MrSotoMan - 4/23/2014, 5:58 AM
@Comicbookguy543- When I saw the rough cut months back, they showed the scene with the head.

I guess they cut it, because the website already had revealed it, other than that I do remember that scene and maybe the US version could have it in the coming weeks. Who knows?
Comicbookguy543 - 4/23/2014, 5:58 AM
And I honestly don't understand why its sub-title is "Rise Of Electro" seeing as it felt more of a "Rise Of Green Goblin/Harry Osborn/Maybe Norman Osborn As Green Goblin But For Now Its Just Harry"
Mrcool210 - 4/23/2014, 5:58 AM
good looking pics, i see so many mixed reviews about this movie, people love it and others hate it. i don't know what to think, but im super excited to see this movie. 9 days to go baby!
Klone - 4/23/2014, 5:59 AM
@Quad

C-u-n-t

Type in the whole word and CBM blocks it out as [foo foo].
Maniac - 4/23/2014, 6:00 AM
@MAK

Peter wants to help him, but he can't because of the side effects. Dr. Conners is brought up as an example.

It's revealed further on the movie that Peter was right to act on his intuition by not help Harry the way he wanted to be helped, because it wouldn't of changed the outcome, as in Harry would of still become Green Goblin.

Peter doesn't come of as a [foo foo] for not helping him, because he has valid reasons from past experiences, and is unsure whether or not Harry's method of helping him will help even help him, or just make him worst.

However, Harry doesn't see it that way, due to him being desperate to save his life, and its his desperation that leads to him becoming the Green Goblin.
Klone - 4/23/2014, 6:01 AM
@BatManiac

The summarizes I read don't really elaborate beyond Peter refusing. Still, I find it hard to disassociate Peter in this version from being a douche mainly because, despite how the character is written, Garfield plays him such a way that I'd want to smack him in real life. Though maybe this is gone from the second film. Whatever. I'm still hoping they may go younger by an inevitable (and yes, it is inevitable) 3rd reboot with someone like 16.
MrSotoMan - 4/23/2014, 6:01 AM
@BatManiac- Well it's pretty logical in my opinion cause what if both Peter & Harry's blood do not match period? Which is why Peter didn't want to do it in the first place cause he had no idea if he had the right blood type to do the transfusion.

When you do transfusions, I have O-, so I can't just ask for AB+ when I need the blood, they need to match with O- so nothing can go terribly wrong. It was just common sense to Peter not to give Harry the blood, nothing to do with his powers, that just came later honestly.

Klone - 4/23/2014, 6:05 AM
If Norman isn't dead and they have a more comic book Goblin in the future (as in appearance) and we have no idea who it is so the revelation of it being Norman is an actual plot twist, that would be a really nice reference to the old comics at the mystery of the Goblin's identity was a big part of the ongoing storyline during that era to the point where Lee and Ditko argued back and forth about whether he should be a character already established that knew or a random, new character with sinister motives.
