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. Directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is scheduled for release on May 2, 2014!

So, it does NOT suck.

Didn't see that one coming.
DrDoom - 4/8/2014, 1:28 PM
Yeah, I remember there being early positive reactions to both TASM1 and Green Lantern.

So I don't give a [frick].

If it has Garfield in it, it's going to be terrible.

Now to turn off my wifi so i don't read spoilers
MrSotoMan - 4/8/2014, 1:30 PM
Well the movie is certainly better than the first one.

The only thing I wish were taken off was the eye rolling moments of the characters, which happens in the movie.

Other than that it was solid.
McNyagano - 4/8/2014, 1:30 PM
I wanna post my review but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to. @Josh Are you going to see it at the premier?
arsonjack - 4/8/2014, 1:30 PM
more people who saw it said it sucks worse than spiderman 3.
MrSotoMan - 4/8/2014, 1:32 PM
@arsonjack- They are lying.
McNyagano - 4/8/2014, 1:34 PM
@MrSoto

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is better than The Amazing Spider-Man."

That's not saying much.
Batmaniac - 4/8/2014, 1:34 PM
1 more week!

MrSotoMan - 4/8/2014, 1:35 PM
@McNyagano- The day it releases in the UK.

@AnnoDomini- No, not IMO.
BritishMonkey - 4/8/2014, 1:36 PM
Whole Gwen Stacy arc? Is she going to die?
GizmoEl - 4/8/2014, 1:36 PM
I'm hoping it shuts all the haters up and proves to everyone that Andrew is a great Peter/Spidey. Fingers crossed that it's amazing!!!
McNyagano - 4/8/2014, 1:37 PM
I think it was better than Cap 2.:D

@Jojo

Sony's sniper's are everywhere:/
LEEE777 - 4/8/2014, 1:37 PM
I hope they kill Garfield off in like number 4 like Spidey dying in the ULTIMATE comics, basically that's what webb's universe is, the Ultimate one and bring in a new Spidey to take his place, pity they never titled it Ultimate Spider-Man!

Batmaniac - 4/8/2014, 1:37 PM
Of course she's going to die! It's her destiny!
McNyagano - 4/8/2014, 1:37 PM
@MrSoto

Why are you waiting that long, embargo has already lifted I think.
MrSotoMan - 4/8/2014, 1:40 PM
To think she isn't going to die, is pretty foolish to develop another made up story just to continue her so Norman can do it.

Like BatManiac said, it was her destiny to die, it was meant to be because the one story that followed with Gwen with her father that her hate Spider-Man was abandoned the moment she was still with Peter in the second movie. That being said, there was nothing else you could do with that character except provide the shock moment that was intended when first showed to fans when reading #121.

WOW
Hail Hydra

Sony/Marvel

Great News
ezio619 - 4/8/2014, 1:41 PM
this is gonna be a divisive film, some people dont like this take on the spider man mythos , some for valid reasons which is fine ,some..not so much, the first amazing spiderman is a film that is very mixed among people,i personally realllly like it,i like it better then the raimi trilogy, the first two spiderman films are OK, 3 is bad,i just could not connect with tobeys peter parker, he felt too insecure and for lack of a better word, whiny.i didnt care for the relationship between him and MJ,the amazing spider man,i loved andrew as peter, his characterization to me felt like a more updated version of amazing fantasy 15, where he is smart, a nerd(though nerds kind of rule the world these days so how much can u focus on that) but he had a chip on his shoulder, he was a social outcast, he even says he will show them one day so yeah thats this peter too me, his relationship with gwen was great,the lizard was my only big complaint with the film,hopefully this is good
Pasto - 4/8/2014, 1:41 PM
I heard this film was pretty bad. Terrible editing is one complaint I heard from several people.
JoJo1982 - 4/8/2014, 1:41 PM
@mcnyagano

Not if you give a spoiler for review



Oh yea I'm pretty sure Sony don't know who you really are other then mcnyagano
TimL - 4/8/2014, 1:41 PM
Never trust early viewer reactions. Trust me, going to see this day 1 next week April 16th. Will report back without spoiling.
DrDoom - 4/8/2014, 1:42 PM
I want to see the negative Twitter reactions in the article as well, DCMF.
MrSotoMan - 4/8/2014, 1:42 PM
@McNyagano- Yea I think I should release it a lot earlier, depending what is going on tomorrow, I will begin writing it for this Friday.

@AnnoDomini- Oh it's a good movie that is for sure, but it is not better than Winter Soldier, but I do have to say the last 30 minutes is just as good and better than Winter Soldiers last 30 minutes.
GinjaNinja - 4/8/2014, 1:43 PM
ehhhhhhhhhh not looking to great. Only way to make sure the spidey franchise is safe is if they put it in the MCU. Doesn't mean sony can't still make him, but Feige will make sure its made well.
McNyagano - 4/8/2014, 1:44 PM
@Jojo

Mmmmm that's my real name hahah

@MrSoto

I already have mine done lol
MrSotoMan - 4/8/2014, 1:44 PM
@AnnoDomini- Really, I thought it cut me right in the feels with that act. Especially the flashback with Steve & Bucky was really well handled.

I thought it was great, but I feel when it came down to intensity it doesn't have it, but not sure if it was meant to have it or not. Unlike TASM2, intense is the first name of the last 30 minutes.
MrSotoMan - 4/8/2014, 1:45 PM
@McNyagano- Did you add spoilers? I'm thinking I should but I got bitched at for writing spoilers. Maybe I will, maybe not, probably just sneak in some mild ones.
McNyagano - 4/8/2014, 1:47 PM
@MrSoto

No not really, it's spoiler free.
Gusto - 4/8/2014, 1:47 PM
I'm gonna hold out 'til Grif tweets.
DrDoom - 4/8/2014, 1:50 PM
Seems like yet again the unevolved of our species fall prey to poor filmmaking, just like with first film.

How disappointing.
Interestein - 4/8/2014, 1:51 PM
I never doubted it, it's looked amazing with a few minor nit picks!

Same thing with Days of Future Past, I don't understand why people become so biased towards a film they haven't even seen, especially a Bryan Singer X-film, he gave us 2 of the best CBM of all time.
Bl00dwerK - 4/8/2014, 1:51 PM
I'm just not buying that kid as the Goblin. Maybe I'll be wrong...
ALmazing - 4/8/2014, 1:51 PM
Glad it's getting good reactions, although I have to say that the negative ones are a cause for concern.
McNyagano - 4/8/2014, 1:51 PM
LOL this movie was EPIC. Like I said, it's better than Cap 2, I was a little bit emotionally invested in the movie than I did with Cap 2.
ezio619 - 4/8/2014, 1:52 PM
so the reaction to this one seems to be the reaction to the first one..very mixed and all over the place in terms of opinions
TheWebSlinger - 4/8/2014, 1:52 PM
"Because I'm with you, till the end of the line."

THE FEELS, CAPTAIN AMERICA STAHP.
CaptainObvious - 4/8/2014, 1:53 PM
@AnnoDomini- I think just about everybody would say that considering it doesn't take much effort to top TASM.
