'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Trailer Reveals New Spidey Suit, Electro, Rhino - Vulture? Doc Ock?



You already knew that "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" trailer was hitting today, but after watching it, you now know a lot more about the villains in this film. Based on what we're seeing, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) is still trying to have a "normal" relationship with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), but the more he webslings for justice, the more he attracts the attention of baddies.

But those baddies aren't just limited to Jamie Foxx's Electro. While he has been the main selling point, Paul Giamatti has been rising as the Rhino and a new movie poster that surfaced the other day suggested Dane DeHaan's Harry Osborn might go Goblin in the film. That seems pretty confirmed now, unless the man in the Goblin suit is actually Chris Cooper's Harry Osborn -- though he is only seen in the trailer occupying a hospital bed, not a goblin glider. 

The plot suggested by the trailer is that Osborn is behind all sorts of bad stuff, and more than just the death of Pete's parents. In fact, it looks like OsCorp is building a supervillain team. Perhaps, for me at least, the most crucial scene in the trailer is when we see a mysterious figure walking through the halls of (presumably) an OsCorp facility. What are those in the cases against the wall if not a pair of Vulture wings and Doctor Octopus arms. We actually get a longer peek at those than at Rhino.

All signs are that this movie is a primer to a pretty friggin' big Sinister Six third installment of the rebooted Spidey franchise. Still, why show so much in the first trailer? This unloads a lot with about six months (Six!) before the movie's May 2014 release.

Check it out and let us know what you think.
