With the massive marketing that is going into The Amazing Spider-Man 2, one has to ask: is there anything left to see in the theater? The trailers, the clips, the Super Bowl spots, the TV spots, not to mention the viral marketing, makes it feel as though Sony has burned through everything stopping short of showing the entire film.
The third and supposedly final trailer lays down the gauntlet by revealing the three villains that will appear in the film. But before you think being inundated with three villains is going to be Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 all over again, director Marc Webb has said that Rhino (Paul Giamatti) will appear in the film for only a few minutes, and that Max Dillion aka Electro (Jamie Foxx) will be the main villain. The trailer actually does a great job of digging deeper into Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Harry Osborn’s (Dane DeHaan) complex friendship.
Hit the jump to watch the final trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
As aforementioned, nothing I say now will add to what we already know or have seen. Spider-Man is still a charming hero, Max Dillion is the unappreciated antagonist, Harry Osborn is seeking his father’s approval, Gwen Stacy is still in love with Peter. It has all be laid out, so this trailer gets into the action a little bit more than it did for the other trailers. Trouble is, if Rhino is in it for the small amount of time Webb says he is, then I feel like I’ve just watched the entire Rhino sequence in those couple of trailers.
Hopefully there is something left to see.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in theaters on May 2.
