Amazing Spider-Man 2

Was it weird that Sony took down the recent “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” trailer? It was kind of spoilery, but then again, it featured much of the same footage as the recent Superbowl spot. A conspiracy afoot, much like the one hinted at in Marc Webb’s upcoming Spider-Man sequel? (Interestingly enough, the one piece of footage missing from the Super Bowl spot was the appearance of Campbell Scott as Peter's dad Richard Parker.)

Regardless, three new featurettes about the film have arrived. One called, “The Price Of Being A Hero” asks the question: can Spider-Man have two lives? One as a crime fighter, one as a mild-mannered teenager with a girlfriend and an elderly Aunt to take care of? The second is your average behind-the-scenes teaser called, “Lights, Camera, Action” and yes, both of them feature new bits of footage for hard core fans who can’t get enough. The third featurette sort-of-hilariously boasts how eco-friendly the sequel was and is devoted to its "green" subject. We suppose it's great that Sony is concerned about the overall carbon footprint of their gigantic production. It’s just kind of a funny featurette to release.

Anywhoo, opening in theaters on May 2, 2014, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, B.J. Novak and Sarah Gadon. Watch the clips below.
