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...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be directed by Marc Webb from a script written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt. The film will star Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Sally Field as Aunt May, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, Jamie Foxx is Electro and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn. The Amazing Spider-Man sequel will swing into theaters May 2, 2014.

Cool!

@Nails

Have you seen it yet?
nailbiter111 - 5/2/2014, 3:56 PM

Brainiac13 - Yes, twice.
nailbiter111 - 5/2/2014, 3:57 PM
Brainiac13 - First time I saw it, I hated it. On second viewing it got better. I would call it slightly better than the first. Though, I rated the first as mediocre. This new one is slightly better than mediocre.
Brainiac13 - 5/2/2014, 3:57 PM
@Nails

So what do you think of it........3/5 for me. My kids loved it.
Brainiac13 - 5/2/2014, 3:58 PM
I would love to watch it again.....but too bloody expensive. Cost me just less than £50 with 2 kids.
Brainiac13 - 5/2/2014, 4:00 PM
@Nails

Yeah I know what you mean.......but was fun to watch.
nailbiter111 - 5/2/2014, 4:02 PM
Brainiac13 - If people didn't like it, I understand. If people did like it, I understand. It's a strange film. There are some very good moments and some real head-scratchers. It certainly got a boost cause of the final 10 to 20 minutes.

GREAT MOVIE. I haven't seen Spider-Man ever have this much fun. Sadly most people want him to mope around all day like in Spider-Man 2 instead of having fun.
nailbiter111 - 5/2/2014, 4:07 PM
MrBlackJack - Probably not, I don't think I'm very good at writing reviews. I tried to several times for this film but I kept bringing up too many spoilers. I can't seem to make my points without going down that road, and I don't care for reviews that include spoilers. My tweets and comments here should suffice.

The video looks great. Can't wait to see it in 3D tomorrow.
nailbiter111 - 5/2/2014, 4:09 PM
I might write an article detailing scenes from the film that I had issues with. Though, I don't want to post that for a week or so. No need to pee on other people's good time.

I've seen it, very dissapointning movie, I hoped for better but let's see what the third sequel brings.
Dangermouse78 - 5/2/2014, 4:11 PM
They did an amazing job with the CGI on this film it's seamless. The web slinging scenes are some of best action you will see in any CBM, if not the best yet and easily the best of any Spider-Man film. Don't believe the overly negative haters on this site, the film isn't perfect but it's an entertaining Spider-Man film.
Ancar - 5/2/2014, 4:12 PM
Great job. And the movie is amazing, people were applauding at the end of the exhibition:)
McNyagano - 5/2/2014, 4:12 PM
Whoa:o So much work and detail. Props to them, the Spidey suit has never looked better than it did in this film.

Brainiac13 - 5/2/2014, 4:15 PM
@Nails

Totally agree.

I would've loved if Spidey didn't knock GG out...and beat the crap out of him like in the comic but without killing him.

The fight was too short.
PAF - 5/2/2014, 4:15 PM
The only thing I really dislike about his suit is his damn boots. They look like wedge sneakers.
sinsear912 - 5/2/2014, 4:17 PM
Slow day for news
nailbiter111 - 5/2/2014, 4:19 PM
sinsear912 - Go [frick] yourself. Don't visit the site if you don't like CBM related content.
prettynucIear - 5/2/2014, 4:21 PM
props to andrew garfield, he's the best spider-man. cool, funny and not a geeky virgin like tobey maguire.
CaptainObvious - 5/2/2014, 4:31 PM
@prettynucIear- Peter Parker is supposed to be a geek. Why do you think nobody at school likes him? He's anything but cool.
HeadPool420 - 5/2/2014, 4:44 PM
Seeing it Sunday. I've heard mixed things about the movie but most seem to agree that the action parts are good. I'm trying to tell myself it's gonna suck so hopefully I'll be surprised and enjoy it. :)
Tuuralihn - 5/2/2014, 4:55 PM
Yeah! Science, bitch!
ibravosp5 - 5/2/2014, 5:17 PM
I honestly feel like I seen the movie, I watched all the trailers and tv spots numerous times, already know certain spoilers (insert name here) won't return for a sequel unless the lazerous pit from batman existed in the marvel universe, and I read on Wikipedia when the rhino shows up, I watched spidey battle the green goblin scene online and stopped it when it got to a certain spoiler type point and cut it off....I can say goblin is shortly in this movie....I was hoping for an epic long final battle and not a cool short one...I can say that I know I haven't seen all the movie but I can officially say I can piece together the plot, and if the plot is what I think it is then I honestly think that the green goblin should've been in the movie as the main bad guy and max Dillon should've been max Dillon the entire movie and have him turn into electro at the end.

this movie sucked :(
Comedian03 - 5/2/2014, 5:49 PM
Say what you want about this movie, but god damnit the visuals were out of this world.
AsgardianHobo - 5/2/2014, 5:53 PM
prettynuclear enjoyed it?



i kid, i kid. It wasn't that bad I guess
Ramiel - 5/2/2014, 6:00 PM
Seeing Spidey in action in TASM2 was beautiful.
IIIAdamantiumIII - 5/2/2014, 6:30 PM
tasm2 was great!
AlphaAndDecima - 5/2/2014, 6:31 PM
They should have put some DETAIL in making the film better.
antoineflemming - 5/2/2014, 7:12 PM
TASM2? meh. Not terrible, not great, villains sucked, especially Electro. Graphics look like great video game graphics, but didn't look real.

@ibravosp5
Well, if that's the way you "enjoy" movies...good to you.
TheDarkKnightSlap - 5/2/2014, 8:16 PM
Nail biter writes an article and then tells a commenter to go phuck themselves over an opinion based comment? Class act. Old bitch.

First I want to say that for me the digital Spidey swinging through New York was BREATHTAKING! It's exactly how I would imagine he'd do it if he actually existed and it was damn near flawless. It made the whole web swinging look like more fun than crime-fighting. They did a great job on that.

As for the film, I really wanted this movie to work. Marc even retweeted three different art pieces I did related to the film. I was kind of bummed out that it didn't demand a second viewing like Cap2 did.

In retrospect I can't imagine how I thought it would, though.

The signs were all there, I guess I just got swept up on the coolness of those trailers.

It's almost like Sony wanted to jam as many villains as they could for the next films they'll be starting...they just forgot that we'd have to WANT to see them again so they didn't bother with any sort of development.

God, what a mess. It wasn't horrible, but I can't in good conscious recommend anyone rush to see it either. Not unless it's on cable or you can see it for free.

I think young kids would like it for the cool scenes it had, and anyone not concerned with a stable narrative or convincing development.

Oh and Garfield was a great Spider-man. Better than the one from the previous trilogy in my opinion. I'd like to take this Spider-man and put him in a film without so many agendas that required so much preparation for the future franchises.

I saw it in IMAX and I enjoyed the web swinging scene. Tomorrow I'm planning to see it in 4DX. It's a new experience. The seats move with the action onscreen. When Spiderman swings from skyscraper to skyscraper, audiences feel like they’re flying and falling, too. There is actual smoke and mist in the theater when police cars crash into an armored van in the streets of New York.
nailbiter111 - 5/2/2014, 9:03 PM
TheDarkKnightSlap - that's not an opinion based comment, that's being a troll. And you're being a troll for trying to fan the flame. I suggest you keep your mouth shut. Unless you'd like to banned, then go right ahead. That's not a dare, that's a promise. We don't tolerate those types of comments.
Mrcool210 - 5/2/2014, 9:22 PM
i can sort of see why people would have some problems with this movie, but i barely had any. I only had a problem with some cheesy lines here and there, some licensed song choices, and a couple plot holes here and there. But the movie is so much fun i didn't care, i felt like a 9 year old kid again. I haven't been this into a movie in so many years. The action, the acting, the special effects, the score, the last 20-30 minutes all of it. And for that for now it is my favorite comic book movie, you don't like it?
