'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Motion Posters Show Spidey's New York Commute
The Wolverine may have started the trend for "motion posters" for movies, but it turns out, Marvel's multitalented mutant may not be the best there is at what he does in this arena. Two new motion posters for this summer's Amazing Spider-Man 2 show the web-headed hero doing far more than just sitting around in the rain.
Debuted by Empire, the new posters cull footage from the movie -- in fact, one pulls directly from the opening shot of the first trailer -- to give the viewer an idea of just what it's like to swing through New York City on the end of a web. (In short: Not something to be recommended for those scared of heights.)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into theaters May 2. Scroll down to see the motion posters below.
