As the massive commercial and movie trailer orgy (with some accompanying football) known as the Super Bowl is upon us this Sunday, it’s time brace ourselves for the onslaught of preview trailers for this year’s biggest blockbusters. Case in point: the “part one” of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Super Bowl trailer (you can only view “part two” during the game).
In the trailer, we get new footage of Spider-Man doing battle with the ludicrously sparkly Electro (what is it with the rebooted Spidey franchise selecting every single ludicrous-looking villain for its films?), a hyper-emo Green Goblin/ Harry Osborn, and a tank-like Rhino. Oh, and then there’s a plane crash, and Spider-Man and Gwen crash through a giant glass ceiling and lots of things go boom-boom. Check it out:
Nothing exactly to write home about, and the villains look just awful, but hey, it still looks better than the first film, right?
Directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for a May 2 release date. Additionally, you can watch the remaining 30 seconds of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Super Bowl trailer during the big game this Super Bowl Sunday.
What do you think of the trailer?
