IMAX's latest blog post provides a look at unused designs for The Amazing Spider-Man 2's IMAX poster. These designs were created by Matt Taylor, who also provided insight into his thought process for each unused design. By the way, the final design that was chosen can be partially seen in that image at the top of the article. Just click on it and you can see the full design that was handed out to people in attendance for select IMAX showings of the latest Spider-Man film.
"This is the tower at the top of the Empire State Building. I wanted to show spidey away from it all at a quiet spot above the city." - Matt Taylor "These are my take on a battle between the villains of the piece and spidey with electro front and center. Obviously, I hadn't seen the film while i was doing these sketches, so they were meant to be more interpretive than an accurate representation of a scene in the movie. I tried to make them feel explosive and dynamic with the low angle on the action to show off some of Times Square." - Matt Taylor "This was as close as I got to a traditional hero-shot style poster, with Spider-man against a webbed backdrop. The individual panels from the webbing were filled with patterns that were going to represent the three villains - smashed rock and masonry for the Rhino, flames for the Goblin and lightning bursts for Electro." - Matt Taylor "This was a kind of inverse view of the poster that we went forward with as the final artwork and has the same sort of theme. It's Spidey set against the city (which is as much a part of the Spider-Man story as the other characters), swinging through the skycrapers. This was my favorite of the sketches apart from the one that was chosen, and I think it captured some of the fun side of Spidey." - Matt Taylor

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.

is it time for the usuals to act like shitty little creatures again? go on. bitch and whine. that's what this site's all about, right?
Brainiac13 - 5/10/2014, 2:48 PM
Nice!!


charlie2094 - 5/10/2014, 2:49 PM
Really like those designs, especially the one with Electro
MrDonut - 5/10/2014, 2:52 PM
I liked it but it could've been so much better, like for starters, Max Dillion was uber-[frick]y-creep whilst Electro was a polar opposite badass who didn't get enough time and Giamatti as Rhino? Complete cheesy camp shit, worst casting decision in a long time.

@Jollem

My God, the irony...

@Jollem

Now, now, don't get angry at those who who enjoy good pacing, well structured narratives and have some expectations.
ManofSteel22 - 5/10/2014, 2:54 PM
third and last ones are the best
Pending - 5/10/2014, 2:57 PM
A bit too loose with the style. They're alright.
ManCalledSting - 5/10/2014, 2:57 PM
Cool, and the movies doing really good to. I can't wait for the sequel.
0megaDaGod - 5/10/2014, 2:58 PM
Beautiful
MrMartinMarvel - 5/10/2014, 2:58 PM
Very nice, I love the style.
0megaDaGod - 5/10/2014, 3:00 PM
I really wonder if this movie would've turned out well if it didn't try to set up the Sinister Six. When I think about it, the rush to get all that in play seemed to constantly be at odds with the movie it was trying to be. And then when they finally met in the middle they ended up producing visual shit

@Jollem

Oh jollem


And thats some cool posters
ShelfPorn - 5/10/2014, 3:05 PM
The first movie was so strung out and this one was so crammed tight - it just seems like amateurs making these films 0-:-/
MrBlackjack - 5/10/2014, 3:10 PM
Stone=Fox
TheFirstAvenger97 - 5/10/2014, 3:11 PM
I like these posters.
AlphaAndDecima - 5/10/2014, 3:11 PM
It's Jollem's time of the month I see!
TheFirstAvenger97 - 5/10/2014, 3:12 PM
What's up with Garfield's and Stone's haircuts?
marvel72 - 5/10/2014, 3:13 PM
@ jollem

people are entitled to air their opinions,it was a good movie but you must agree some of it was bad.

like you think captain america the winter soldier was just alright,even though its the comic book movie to beat this year.
AlphaAndDecima - 5/10/2014, 3:15 PM
@ marvel72

Knowing Jollem, he will have nothing bad to say about TAS-M 2.
Pending - 5/10/2014, 3:17 PM
The best thing about the movie for me was probably this poster, best one imo.

TheAbaryMan369 - 5/10/2014, 3:17 PM
Eh, they're okay I guess.
thewonderer - 5/10/2014, 3:22 PM
The problem with this movie is that there are scenes that rank amongst the best CBMs of all time. Spider-Man, as a character, and Gwen are nailed in this film.

But then there are scenes that rank amongst the worst CBMs of all time. The villains are completely ass, in every sense of the word.

Strange experience. I still found the film more compelling than the worst of the MCU like the Thor films and the Iron Man sequels which are just lazy and not compelling at all.
MrMartinMarvel - 5/10/2014, 3:28 PM
@Marvel72 Did he really say The Winter Soldier was only "alright"? He's entitled to his opinion, but goddamn he's one strange mother[frick]er.
maninfinesuit - 5/10/2014, 3:29 PM
Cool posters. Good film.
Shaq - 5/10/2014, 3:47 PM
The one in the Empire State Building's is amazing.
CombatWombat - 5/10/2014, 3:51 PM
NeoBaggins wrote a pretty spot on review of this movie
SuperCat - 5/10/2014, 3:54 PM
Love them all!
Jollem - 5/10/2014, 4:13 PM
people are entitled to their opinions here? that's a [frick]ing joke. look what happens when someone dares to criticize a marvel studios movie
TheAstoundingMan - 5/10/2014, 4:36 PM
@Jollem

"people are entitled to their opinions here? that's a [frick]ing joke. look what happens when someone dares to criticize a (insert studio here) movie."

Fixed it for you.


TheAstoundingMan - 5/10/2014, 4:38 PM
Cool posters. A shame about the movie, but at least Cap (and potentially X-Men) will pick up the slack.
Jollem - 5/10/2014, 4:41 PM
tasm 1 and 2 are better than most of the marvel studios movies
sameoldthing - 5/10/2014, 4:46 PM
Damn...so the movie sucked & now we see posters that suck.
Only knowing Emma Stone sucks d__k makes sucking good.
Ancar - 5/10/2014, 5:02 PM
The third and the last one are brilliant:)
marvel72 - 5/10/2014, 5:04 PM
@ MrMartinMarvel

yeah something about seeing both the same day & the amazing spider-man 2 was awesome & captain america the winter soldier was alright.
DTor91 - 5/10/2014, 6:34 PM
These posters are amazing, unlike the movie.
Melkaticox - 5/10/2014, 8:00 PM
@TheAbaryMan369 "Okay"?
"OKAY"?
"OKAY"?!!!

Why can't they use these beautiful posters for normal theatrical releases? Instead we end up getting things like that horrible final poster (just flip it around, guys. Then you'll be able to see what's wrong with it)

Marvel Sucks donkey balls! [frick] them! [frick] them to hell!
