Oscorp Industries heir Harry Osborn teams up with the powerful villain Electro in a new trailer for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
The trailer also features plenty of web-slinging acrobatics and some gravity-defying fight scenes between teenaged hero Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and a plethora of baddies, including Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Rhino (Paul Giamatti).
The film, due in North American theaters May 2, stars Dane DeHaan (“Chronicle”) as Peter Parker’s pal Harry Osborn, son of Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper), who in the comic books becomes the Green Goblin. And judging from the new trailer (watch it below), the sinister workings of Oscorp Industries will play an integral part in the new film.
The sequel, helmed by returning director Marc Webb, follows the critical and box-office success of his 2012 Marvel adaptation “The Amazing Spider-Man,” which rebooted the franchise that Sam Raimi had so successfully directed roughly a decade earlier. Webb’s Spidey movie took in upward of $262 million at the domestic box office, and also earned critical praise, thanks in part to the winning chemistry between English actor Garfield and his costar Emma Stone, who played Parker’s lady love Gwen Stacy.
Webb is set to direct “The Amazing Spider-Man 3,” due in 2016, and Sony has plans for a fourth installment in 2018.
Additionally, the company announced plans for new movies about Spider-Man’s nemesis Venom and the collective of bad guys known as the Sinister Six via its Electro Arrives website. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Ed Solomon are to write the screenplay for “Venom,” while Drew Goddard is set to write, and potentially direct, “The Sinister Six.”
Kurtzman and Orci, along with Jeff Pinkner, will write the script for “The Amazing Spider-Man 3.”
