The Amazing Spider-Man helped ring in 2014 with a trailer not only containing the Generalissimo himself, Stan Lee but also exclusive content featuring Times Square. Did you also know that he paid a personal visit to the ball? We have both the trailer and a peek at his visit, compliments of Marvel Entertainment.

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, and Dane DeHaan and arrives in theaters May 2. Here's the official synopsis, then check out the two videos after the jump:

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
