'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Super Bowl Trailer Swings Into Action (Video)
UPDATED: The Sony film hits theaters May 2 and returns with star Andrew Garfield as the iconic superhero.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hit Super Bowl Sunday with two big game spots teasing the upcoming sequel.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 reunites Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) with co-star Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), and welcomes series newcomers Jamie Foxx (Max/Electro), Dane DeHaan (Harry Osborn), Paul Giamatti (Rhino) and Chris Cooper (Norman Osborn).
The new four-minute sizzle, titled "Enemies Unite," opens with Peter (Garfield) and Aunt May (Sally Field) arguing over his inability to do the laundry because the last time he attempted to do so, he turned everything "blue and red." "I was washing the American flag," stutters Peter in his search for a reasonable explanation without blowing his Spider-Man cover to the "Laundry Sheriff."
It's clear Peter is far more comfortable in his Spider-Man skin than in the previous film, and the trailer capitalizes on that, infusing Max's fascination with the celebrity that now surrounds everybody's favorite web-slinger. "I wish I was like him," he says. Be careful what you wish for.
When Electro and Spider-Man have their Times Square showdown, things between the acquaintances get off on the wrong foot when Spider-Man feigns remembering who Electro is. And when Peter discovers that Oscorp had him under surveillance, things go from bad to worse. "Nothing is what I thought it was," says Peter.
In another light-hearted moment, when Aunt May catches a dusted-up Peter in his bed, she questions him on his lack of cleanliness. "I was cleaning the chimney," Peter lies. "We have no chimney…" Aunt May says in response. "What???" he responds.
The film hits theaters May 2, with plenty of Spider-Man to come. The third and fourth films centering on the web-slinger are already on the slate, with Venom and The Sinister Six spinoffs also in the works.
