The Amazing Spider-Man 2

With Warner Bros. bulking up "Batman Vs. Superman" with Wonder Woman, the Marvel-verse continuing to expand like so many waistlines at an all you can eat buffet, it's time for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" to level up in the superhero arms race.

The first trailer for the web-spinning sequel is here, promising plenty for fans. If complaints about the first movie was that it was slightly tweaked retread of the familiar origin story, this time around Spidey (Andrew Garfield) has Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Electro (Jamie Foxx) to tangle with as Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) enters the picture too. And of course, the general consensus is the building blocks to Sinister Six are being laid. But through it all, Peter Parker's eye will be on Gwen (Emma Stone). Here's the official synopsis: 

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" lands on May 2, 2014. Watch below. Update: This trailer apparently needs some 'splainin' so director Marc Webb and the cast have sat down to record a trailer breakdown/commentary track which you can see below.
