New Clip From The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Spidey meets Electro

It has reached a point where you start to feel you’ve seen a lot of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with all the trailers, featurettes and enough images to create a short flipbook out there already. But as the film prepares to enter cinemas next month, Sony is looking to show off just a little more, with the first proper clip hitting the web.

This footage finds Jamie Foxx’s Max Dillon newly turned into the energy-manipulator known as Electro. Still trying to understand his powers and buzzing with the anger he’s carried with him most of his life, Max has already caused some destruction in the middle of Manhattan. Now, with police snipers training their weapons on him, it’s up to our friendly neighbourhood web-slinger (Andrew Garfield) to try to talk him down from creating more chaos, even as a worried Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) looks on.

But as Peter Parker attempts to reduce the tension, a sudden flash of power causes one of the snipers to fire… And that only makes things much, much worse.

Director Marc Webb has been insisting that the multiple villains angle is more about world building than overstuffing the film and the focus definitely appears to be on Electro in this entry. Given that the third and fourth films are in development, we’re hopeful that means this second entry can overcome some of the plot issues of the first. We’ll find out how successful the team have been when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens on April 18.
