'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Teaser Hints at Major Times Square Battle (Video)
Footage that debuted on New Year's Eve pits Spider-Man against new nemesis Electro.
New footage from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 debuted during New Year's Eve festivities in Times Square.
Introduced by Stan Lee, the minute-long teaser features an intense battle between Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and his main rival, Electro (Jamie Foxx), in the middle of -- where else? -- Times Square.
The spot hypes up the action the New York City destination receives on an annual basis (39 million people visit per year, the teaser dramatically opens) and from the looks of it, it will be in grave danger come May 2 when Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters.
Though much of the focus is on Spider-Man versus Electro (who becomes more powerful when in contact with electricity), there is a brief glimpse of yet another nemesis in Rhino (Paul Giamatti).
Director Marc Webb returns at the helm, with Emma Stone, Sally Field, Dane DeHaan and Chris Cooper also starring.
