If you were one of the lucky ones that went to the first IMAX showings of Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 you received a special poster that was designed by UK artist Matt Taylor. Hit the jump to see the designs that didn't make the cut.
"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.
