New The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Clips Offer Romance and Danger
03.13.14 by Ryan
Considering the chemistry between Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield as Gwen Stacy and Peter Parker was one of the highlights of 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man, it shouldn't be a surprise that one of the latest clips for the upcoming sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, would focus specifically on Peter and Gwen. Also, considering that the sequel is called The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise of Electro in some territories, it shouldn't be a surprise that the other latest clip would feature Spider-Man in what might be his first encounter with Electro (Jamie Foxx). What is a little surprising is that Sony would release this much footage of the movie with a few months left before the sequel's release, but it's doubtful fans will complain.
In the first clip, Peter and Gwen are hiding in an Oscorp closet, where they share a romantic moment before Peter covers Gwen's escape. In the second clip, Electro, seemingly fresh off of discovering his newfound powers, is surrounded by the police in Times Square when Spider-Man tries to talk him out of doing anything destructive. Not to get all spoiler-y, but let's just say that talking doesn't save the day.
Directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 co-stars Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn/Green Goblin, Paul Giamatti as The Rhino and Sally Field as Aunt May. The highly-anticipated sequel opens on May 2.
