If it seems like we're getting deluged by "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" over a month before it opens, you might be forgetting that the film is slated to open overseas a full two weeks before it drops here. That's right, every four years, the World Cup wreaks havoc with movie scheduling as studios don't want their big tentpoles opening during the frame when everyone around the globe will be glued to their TVs watching the action unfold on the pitch.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

If it seems like we're getting deluged by "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" over a month before it opens, you might be forgetting that the film is slated to open overseas a full two weeks before it drops here. That's right, every four years, the World Cup wreaks havoc with movie scheduling as studios don't want their big tentpoles opening during the frame when everyone around the globe will be glued to their TVs watching the action unfold on the pitch. 

That said, the level of revelations about the upcoming sequel are reaching somewhat preposterous proportions. While this new clip of Spidey flying the through the air is innocuous enough, this latest featurette from EW teases both Gwen Stacy's death, and the building up to the Sinister Six, with Marc Webb teasing that at the end of 'Spider-Man 2' there's gonna be meaty hook for fans to cling to as they wait "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" in 2016.

Too much show and tell or just enough to get you to buy a ticket? Tell us below. "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" drops on May 2nd. Watch below along with the new pics including the first look at Stan Lee's cameo.
