Forget squinting at Sony press conference leaks. This is the real deal. The Amazing Spiderman 2 has its first trailer, and it’s full of swinging, zapping, menacing and brooding. Plus there’s an emo kid.
The trailer gives us glimpses of the two villains for the picture: Electro and Rhino. In truth, we only really see the Rhino costume for a few frames. Paul Giamatti in his performance as the villain is as yet unseen. What we do get to see is a glowing Jamie Foxx for his role as Electro. From the looks of things, his ability to fire supercharged bolts will be a problem for our friendly neighbourhood Spiderman.
The emo kid is the new Harry Osborne. Gone is the goofy portrayal of the character by James Franco, replaced by a moon-tanned, puffy-eyed kid by the name of Dane DeHaan, who has been in a whole truckload of films at the tender age of 26.
The Amazing Spiderman 2 swings into theatres on 2 May, 2014.
