AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2: Spidey Attends High School Graduation; Plus Video Of The Kiss

I'm no scientist, but I'm pretty sure wearing your superhero costume at your high school graduation is not a very good way of keeping your secret identity, a secret. Update! Sally Field's Aunt May joins in on the festivities.

Earlier today, I posted images of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) graduating Midtown Science High School. During that event, Peter was handed his diploma by Gwen, the valedictorian. Overcomed with joy, Peter planted a kiss upon Gwen that knock off her cap.

What was interesting, but at the time seemed unimportant, was that Peter went up on the stage wearing a backpack. Which is very odd to do when graduating. Now, based on the new pictures below, we can understand the need for the backpack, a place to hide his costume.

So, what's wrong? Well, the tone seems off. I understand we are only seeing a small fragment of the film with these set photos, but from what we have seen there seems to be a very childish tone. Paul Giamatti's acting seems to be very, very over-the-top. And I'm just judging that based on the set pics and videos, but the over-exaggerated facial movements are better suited for a cartoon. And do we have to mention the scene with his pants falling down and exposing Rhino underpants? Well, I guess we just did. How about Spidey preparing to fight Rhino with a little boy dressed as him stands in front of the action.

Seriously, what is the tone of this film? I don't mind that Spidey has to rush off during the ceremony. That's fine, something like that has happened plenty of times to Peter. The problem, is how it is being handled. Does Peter have to put on the Spider-Man mask and then put the graduation cap over it? Just put the mask on and take off. Putting the cap back on seems like Mr. Webb is going for a cheap laugh, like the Rhino underpants.

As one of the commenters mentioned below, Spidey could be late to the ceremony and is trying to remove his superhero costume as quickly as he can so that he can receive his diploma on time. Does that make it any better? I guess it helps a bit, but it still doesn't explain the cap on his noggin. Since there tends to be a lot of people attending graduations and they do like to bring recording devices with them. You know, to savor the moment.













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 Stacy (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter Parker 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 Parker when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

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.

Reboot the reboot

looks like peter was tryin' to grab some tush, and the diploma got in the way
LEVITIKUZ - 6/1/2013, 4:37 PM
Maybe there's a reason these haters are hating? Maybe its because this while film series so far sucks.
AshleyWilliams - 6/1/2013, 4:41 PM
I thought the first film was great and I'm satisfied with what I'm seeing so far for this film.

LEVI- Seriously? If all you're going to do is bash it, don't click on the damn article.

You're shaming the face of Bender by behaving like a child. Wait.
CaptainObvious - 6/1/2013, 4:41 PM
I think if any of us went to our high school graduation dressed like this, we would probably be refused our diplomas and get kicked out.
Jollem - 6/1/2013, 4:42 PM
please take no offense, i saw this and couldn't resist

davideodus - 6/1/2013, 4:43 PM

happy graduation
rebellion - 6/1/2013, 4:49 PM
horrible. i've never liked garfield as parker and this is making things worse. like it's being made by cw.
Tony93 - 6/1/2013, 4:51 PM
maybe hes barely getting to the graduation and takes off the massk and shoes before getting the diploma
exe - 6/1/2013, 4:52 PM
First movie is not that bad. I'm giving this second attempt a chance.

Electro looks cool, Rhino doesn't.
Still love me some Spidey.
nowtheresaBATman - 6/1/2013, 4:53 PM
Good get on w/ it! I'm sick of high school Peter.
rbfn04 - 6/1/2013, 4:53 PM
Can someone give Emma a ha,burguer or 20?

This movie looks better than the first. Of course the first one was terrible and there was nowhere to go but up, still...
HarryOsbournesFathersGlider - 6/1/2013, 4:53 PM
He might be going to graduation just after a fight? No need to hate and judge before its out, everyone thought that the nightmare scene in Iron Man 3 was originally going to be the villain kidnapping Peppa Potts...
rocky - 6/1/2013, 4:54 PM
OK I don't see any reason for these shots to worry anyone
He's out doing Spidey stuff and then rushing off to graduation and changing on the run.
I know at times I forget I have my hat on
sure that mask becomes part of him and easy to forget when in a rush

Sounds like a reason for people looking for reasons to be down on this
Jollem - 6/1/2013, 4:55 PM
@Tony93 - that's what it seemed like to me. or got in a tussle right before graduating
megabatfan - 6/1/2013, 4:56 PM
Looks like he just came frm sm Spidey action & has to hustle to his graduation... Hence no pants (or short pants) under his graduation gown
Jollem - 6/1/2013, 4:57 PM
Nailbiter just picks on spidey because he thinks he's sexy

rbfn04 - 6/1/2013, 4:58 PM
And that mask looks [frick]ing perfect
LEVITIKUZ - 6/1/2013, 4:58 PM
I didn't come to bash the film. I thought maybe there was something here that may interest me but there wasn't.
CaptRogers - 6/1/2013, 4:59 PM
Seriously, some you act like you've never seen Peter Parker rush somewhere before or after being involved in some spidey activity. It's pretty much one of the defining facets of the duel identity struggle!....but, I will admit him actually wearing the cap over his mask is fairly chincy
Tomontherun99 - 6/1/2013, 5:00 PM
@exe It's way too early to judge Rhino, Giamatti is a great actor and all we've seen of Rhino is half a motion capture rig that'll look nothing like what will end up in the final movie
AshleyWilliams - 6/1/2013, 5:01 PM
Then leave it alone.

Don't be a Supermike.
UrbanKnight - 6/1/2013, 5:01 PM
Come on now! That's no reason to worry just yet.
rbfn04 - 6/1/2013, 5:02 PM
@NightAvenger so Levi can't say anything unless it's positive? That seems to beat the purpose of a comments session
Jollem - 6/1/2013, 5:03 PM
"I didn't come to bash the film."

do you think you're fooling anyone? :)
NBAfanaddict - 6/1/2013, 5:03 PM
My take: He's either running from graduation to a Spidey related incident, or the flip side. Wouldn't make a huge deal out it.
InfiniteMonkey - 6/1/2013, 5:03 PM
He should have grabbed her ass.
CrazyKeaton - 6/1/2013, 5:03 PM
he's still in freaking high school??? wait wait wait.. people liked part 1?????
Sanderman - 6/1/2013, 5:07 PM
clearly being typical Peter where's he late for graduation and taking off his costume to get to graduation in time. I'm guessing he's late because of the Rhino fight
Gambitz - 6/1/2013, 5:08 PM
Childish? gee I wonder who the film's main demographic is going to be......
AshleyWilliams - 6/1/2013, 5:08 PM
rbfn04- No, but when he visits EVERY TASM2 article and says just about the same thing everytime, that's crossing the line from expressing opinion to being an asshat.

Nothing personal LEVI, just lay off it for awhile. Please.
Jollem - 6/1/2013, 5:11 PM
TheDIsSilent - 6/1/2013, 5:13 PM
If people are here to hate on the film or the film series, just leave. Seriously. There is no need for pointless bashing that's only said in a wanting to start shit.

Back to the matter at hand, he is obviously cutting it close for his graduation. He probably just got done fighting crime as Spidey and he was going to be late, so he is multitasking on the run, taking off his costume as he walks. Or, like NBAfanaddict said, he's going to fight crime immediately after. After all, it does look like in those first few pics that he's running in some sort of building, perhaps the school (which would be empty).

Either way, stop it with the stupid presumptions that the movie's going to suck when we've barely seen anything from it.
storyteller - 6/1/2013, 5:23 PM
Is Peter supposed to be grabbing her ass or is Garfield forgetting they are filming?
Alfredo27 - 6/1/2013, 5:28 PM
Im heere to mega bash this. THe first looked so corny I would never even think of it, same case here, and with Superman, no chance it hell im going to waste 2+hours of life on that crap. People defending this movie are under 25 probably. LEAVE? BAHAHAAHHA You can want something to be good but that doesn't mean it is.
Ryden - 6/1/2013, 5:28 PM
It's obviously a joke sequence, he'll be late for graduation getting the costume off in a rush as Sanderman pointed out, the reason he still has the mask on is probably played for laughs. He'll be in such a rush he'll have forgot all about the mask and then take it off a second before he goes on the stage.

I don't think we can really judge the tone for the film yet considering we've only seen set photos.
EdgyOutsider - 6/1/2013, 5:31 PM
I can tell this scene is going to play out so well on screen. Loved the first one, loved the original trilogy. I want to love this movie but, I'm still iffy. At least Webb is better than Snyder.

Sorry Levi, I just had to put that in for a reaction. It's all fun though bro.
Jollem - 6/1/2013, 5:33 PM
corny? cheap jokes? congratulations Nailbiter!!

you just described almost the entire iron man trilogy

you win a golden shower from the golden avenger
MBZ1993 - 6/1/2013, 5:36 PM
