Are you one of the four of five people out there who argue that Sony hasn’t shown us nearly enough of Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2? You’re in luck!
The "Big Three" of Webb’s second Spider-Man movie – Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx – brought their global publicity tour to New York City on Sunday night to attend the MTV Movie Awards and present an exclusive clip of new material. Wait, there’s new material? Check it out above.
This is the tail end of Spider-Man's first meeting with Electro (Foxx), who just absorbed half the power in Manhattan's Times Square and now wants to take it for a test ride. He's angry and Spidey for getting too much attention, and now Spidey has to rescue innocent bystanders caught in Electro's path. The Clip gives us a great sample of how Webb will slow the action down in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to help audiences experience the hero's signature Spider-Sense. It's fantastic.
This, of course, is different from the numerous looks Sony already has provided for Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which attempts to build on the hero’s recent origin story while also constructing a new universe centered around the evil OsCorp. Like this clip:
And this one:
And who could forget this one?
We’ve even been able to bring you in-depth reports from extensive footage previews for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Eric filed this one from L.A., while I managed to touch on the footage after screening it in my market. Basically, we have Spidey covered from head to toe.
Sooner, rather than later, all of this "preview" footage can draw to a close, because Sony will have Webb’s actual film in theaters. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens overseas on April 16, and in the States on May 2. It will kick off our Summer Blockbuster Season… which kind of began with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But you know what we mean. What did you think of the MTV clip? Are you ready for the movie? Or do you feel like you’ve already seen enough of it? Weigh in below.
