Comic-Con 2013: Amazing Spider-Man 2 Electro Promo Trailer
'You wanna know how powerful I am?'

18 July 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Sony

We’ve seen pictures of Jamie Foxx in his full Electro get-up for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But as Comic-Con kicks off, Sony is ramping things up, putting out a short teaser showing the man himself talking to some off-screen scientist as he’s strapped into machinery.

It’s a really quick burst of the film, presumably teasing more footage to come when the panel happens on Friday, but it’s enough to give a tease of the villain.

The plot finds Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) dealing with bad guys and juggling his newfound superhero world with his usual life – not the least of which is his ongoing relationship with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).

So he’s naturally not best pleased when, in trying to dig further into his past for clues about his real nature, he also has to deal with the arrival of two new potential enemies – Electro and Rhino, played by Paul Giamatti. There’s also time for meeting back up with an old friend, in the shape of Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), whose father (Chris Cooper) runs Oscorp.

We’ll likely see more once the panel happens on Friday, so watch this space for more. But if you’re desperate for any nugget of info on the Spider-sequel, Felicity Jones gave a rather spoilery interview about her recent work to View London. If you’re trying to stay pure, skip the next paragraph and content yourself with waiting for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to arrive on April 18 next year.

Jones was asked about her character, and while she stayed coy about her name in the film, she did let the following info slip: "It’s all quite shrouded in secrecy, but I’m the Goblin’s girlfriend - I’m in a relationship with him, and his accomplice. I’m on the dark side...". She’s been rumoured as Black Cat, so this seems to be pointing even more towards that idea...

It's so confusing when a news story says 'Amazing Spider-man 2 trailer' – I keep forgetting that it's CALLED 'Amazing Spider-man' rather than this being Empire's enthusiastic description of the trailer ... *sigh* More

Wow, how utterly underwhelming. More
