New 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Promo Highlights Gwen and Peter's Romance

Never mind the super villains, it could be a rocky love life that brings down your friendly neighborhood wall-crawler in this summer's superhero sequel.

The heart of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the relationship between Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, according to the latest promotional video for Marc Webb's summer blockbuster sequel. But even super-heroic love has to deal with the occasional bump in the road (or the web line).

The new video, premiered by the Daily Mail, mixes scenes from the movie with interviews with stars Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, as well as director Webb and others involved in the production. Stone says that she "really likes what's happening with Gwen in this one [because] she's grown up a bit," while producer Matt Tolmach added that the character isn't "waiting around for Peter Parker to decide whether he can be with her or not be with her."

Whether or not true love is able to conquer all may not be revealed in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but it turns out that having super powers does at least help when it comes to making grand gestures and declarations. Watch the video above and you'll see what I mean.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is released May 2.
