My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

New Trailer: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Well, Jamie Foxx certainly looks like he’s having fun.

    Looks like fun, but I hope we get to see more of Paul Giamatti in the Rhino suit. Dane DeHaan is giving Ben Foster a run for his money as “Brad Dourif Jr.” isn’t he?

  • Ali Miller

    I actually quite liked the first film, so I’m hoping this one turns out. The cast is great.

  • Guymelef

    Agree about Harry’s hair but I expect there is still some post-production to go on the special effects.

  • Guymelef

    Yes, I thought the casting was a lot better in the reboot. And the costume looks absolutely perfect, finally! At least, my version of perfect.

  • Jamie Jeans

    *yawn* So… nothing about the guy that got away after killing Uncle Ben? Nothing? Just… Aunt May has secrets and Peter needs to know them…?

    Really, film? Really? You’re just not going to do anything with that lesson of power and responsibility? Just going to drag it out that much more?

    And good thing the villains look so utterly bland and militaristic, especially that Rhino, the vulture wings in the background, and Green Goblin. We wouldn’t want the supervillains to, you know, look like supervillains, so it’s good you all got Christopher Nolan in to help out on this movie with the designs. ;p

    1) Paul Giamatti is the Ultimate Rhino. Man piloting a battle suit. Called that!
    2) It looks like the Rhino suit is part of a project that includes Doc Ock’s tentacles and the Vulture’s wings.

    This movie seems to be teasing the Sinister Six. I’m not sure how I feel about this.

    I have too much love for Spidey to ever regard a Spider-Man movie in an objective light.

    The CGI is probably in the early stages still. I remember everyone being disappointed that there wasn’t a lot of the Falcon in the Cap 2 trailer or the Sentinels in the Days of Future Past trailer, and I assumed that was simply because characters that require a lot of CGI take longer to finish up.

    I like that they’ve found a good way to do the Rhino’s suit. That was one I was really worried about because the guy in a rubber rhino costume had the potential to look really stupid.

  • BatiHoney

    There’s nothing I feel disappointed about in this trailer and I can’t freaking wait to see this movie. It actually makes me sad to read the comments and see such mixed reception… I’m loving so many things about the trailer, but I have to leave now, so maybe I’ll come back to edit this post and list some of them.

  • Rob Payne

    I don’t have high expectations for this, though I enjoyed the first enough, but what part ofJamie Foxx looks like he’s part of the military industrial complex and not like a supervillain? Are soldiers coming equipped with electricity now?

  • Anonymous

    That was meant to be Harry?! I mean, I guess in hind-sight it kind of had to be, considering the story, but he looks so little like what I would of suspected that I didn’t even twig it till I read your comment! Going to agree on the Hitler hair lol! :p

    I like the sinister six! Or at least I like the story-lines in the comics where Spiderman has to fight over-whelming odds (which is most of the time I guess). However, I can see why you’d have misgivings since pulling off that many fully-realised villains in a 2 hour or so film won’t be easy. Spiderman 3 certainly failed on that point!

  • Anonymous

    To be fair, most of the original comic designs for those villains look ridiculous! Then again, they pulled off Spider-man’s brightly coloured suit and Green Goblin looked ok in the original trilogy. I guess they are just sub-consciously (or consciously) buying into the ‘grim and gritty’ Nolan style like you said.
    I’m getting a bit sick of all the big block buster films being nothing but black, grey and brown all the time! How can I see what’s going on if everything is the same colour? How do you track fast moving fight scenes clearly when the costumes are all the same colour?! Where is the contrast, the tonal variation? How can you utilise your palette to reflect the mood of a scene when there IS no colour palette?! *exasperated sigh*

    The infamous Osborn cornrows need to be added by CGI? *ROFLMAO*

  • Nuuni Nuunani

    However, spiderman 3 was trying to work three seperate villains with three separate storylines and origins into the same two hours. This recent revelation reveals or at least strongly suggests that all of the villians will take their origins from oscorp which means it wont have to pave ground buiilding up to a bunch of individuals getting their powers in unconnected ways.

  • KF

    The designs are coming from the Ultimate Spider-Man comic book series, as is, it seems, the general tone and plot of the film. Ultimate Spider-Man started up in 2000, before the Nolan Batman films.

  • Andrea Pantoja

    I went straight to IMBD to check who the heck was playing Harry Osbourne and why I recongnized him. It’s the actor from Chronicle!! That was a brilliant movie and you need to go watch it.

  • Foxfire

    What I really enjoyed about the first one was the fight scenes, they really had him fight like a spider which was cool.

    The scenes from the trailer look really nice as well – so I’ll pick it up cheap to watch and I’m excited for some new villains (electro and rhino). But I wont pay a lot as I want it to bomb so the rights slide back to marvel and we can get Spiderman, Wolvie and Loki in the same movie.

    Not going to happen in my lifetime, I know :(

    That’s true. I hadn’t thought of that. It should be much easier to integrate a group of villains if they have a joint origin. All the converging stories in Spiderman 3 didn’t really work out at all! I’ve never understood why they felt the need to smoosh three major Spiderman villains into that film all at once! Just Venom should have been enough if they’d written it well enough.

  • SuperFubar

    At 1:14 you can see Dr Octopuss’ suit thing and the Vulture’s wings. Anyway, this looks pretty cool.

  • Nuuni Nuunani

    To give it some credit, the whole green goblin thing also would have worked given the build up of the other films.
    However, Sandmans whole role in the film retcons Spiderman catching the man responsible for shooting uncle Ben back in the first film, and goblin turning good in time for the final battle just throws the whole point of him off kilter.

    Whats really interesting is all of the easter eggs shown in this trailer. The vulture harness, the Octopus harness, a screen with files labeled fun things like ‘Dr. Morbius’ and ‘The venom project’ We could be looking at some interesting things in future movies that their obviously hinting at.
    I am going to go ahead and make the prediction that Oscorp will be around for quite a while.

  • White Rose Brian

    Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah, Spider-man!
    Spider-man! Here comes Peter on a clothesline but his name’s not Peter
    it is Spider-man! Spider-man!

    There is some speculation that the number 2 is actualy the post credits scene O.o

  • Anonymous

    Well, if this is representative of the movie, they’ve definitely upgraded Electro. It looks like he might actually be a challenge that Spidey won’t manage to beat with rubber boots or a ruptured fire main…

  • Anonymous

    It still looks like they’re all part of the same project. It would just mean that you’re not supposed to know there’s more to the project until after the movie.

  • Vetinari

    Spider-Man is Spider-Man, so I’m likely to see this, but I’m still undecided on this particular version of him thus far, and this trailer didn’t really get me too excited. I’m a little concerned with the sheer quantity of villains seemingly making an appearance, since the risks for getting a superhero movie wrong always seem to increase with more than one antagonist.

    The unpolished CGI was a little bit distracting as well, though I imagine that particular issue will be resolved by the time the movie is out.

  • Dara Crawley

    I always assumed it was like they had a very tightly pressed jerry curl or something. Like it was curled and pressed like a lot of black dudes did in the 1930s up until recently…

    This movie was Gods awful and now Sony’s torturing us with more of this sh*t. They had a good run with the Sam Raimi trilogy, don’t get me wrong. But the only reason they rebooted, as we all know, was so they can keep the movie rights to Spiderman and not let Marvel (and Disney) have him back. Because Sony would be loath to let our beloved webhead go back to Marvel Studios and have them make billions off “Spiderman Meets the Avengers.” That’s the Spiderman we deserve to see, but Sony would rather churn out crap every other year cause they don’t care to share.
