What’s nice about this latest tidbit of Spidey goodness is it puts the focus back on only a couple of plot threads. Where much of the marketing since the Super Bowl has been about selling the idea of “villains unite,” this trailer is more about “check out Electro” and “who has it out for Peter Parker and his family?” It’s a refreshing change of pace from the chaotic nature of the last few videos, and really works to build up the seemingly tragic nature of Jamie Foxx’s character.
The more we see of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the clearer it’s becoming that this movie might just be as epic as Webb and Sony have claimed it to be. Just imagine the possibility of a movie that succeeds despite being alleged to suffer from the “too many villains” problem. If they pull this off, it could change everything we know about the super-hero genre.
