The Amazing Spiderman 2 Trailer


By Samantha Swan

The International trailer for the new Spiderman movie, The Amazing Spiderman 2  has recently been released with so much anticipation following on from the first one; it will surely draw in the crowds. Without giving too much of the plot away, the trailer fuels its fans with new exciting villains, stunts and suspense that will surely make it one of the highlights of 2014.

Reprising the role of Peter Parker is the British actor Andrew Garfield who seems to have taken the role well. He adds charm, but also excitement that previous actors in the same role have not been able to accomplish. Also making a return as his on-screen and off-screen girlfriend is Emma Stone as the loveable Mary Jane, with the couple making cute exchanges in the movie.

In the trailer we get a glimpse for the first time of the new villains who are going to make Spiderman’s life a handful. There’s the aqua-blue hued Electro, beefed up Rhino and The Green Goblin. Many are likely to comparisons of The Green Goblin from the one in the Spiderman films, so it will be interesting to see how they portray this villain.


Compared with the Spiderman movies released between 2002 and 2007, The Amazing Spiderman is much darker in tone. However, the costumes and effects in the earlier films came across as more lifelike, whereas The Amazing Spiderman seems to overuse the special effects, creating an a film that looks more like an animation, rather than a real-life movie with actors.

Will this movie live up to the trailer? Bring on 2014 so we can find out.
