Like all good trailers, the 150 second teaser for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had plenty of easter eggs hidden inside of it. Here at The Movies, we have far too much time on our hands and have ignored our loved/inflated ones to pour over that trailer and explore every frame in detail.
This is what we found.
You’ve got to give director Marc Webb credit, because he certainly knows how to make those Spidey web-slinging scenes feel exciting and pop in 3D.
Gargoyles, good for contemplation and make-shift seats for arachnid-themed vigilantes.
I love how Webb has created a Spider-Man with a distinct moveset, that really takes inspiration from his totem creature.
Don’t forget, Peter possesses the proportionate speed, agility and strength of a spider.
Peter doing some more contemplation, possibly at the grave of either his uncle Ben or Captain Stacy.
Yep, that’s definitely Paul Giamatti climbing into his rhino-themed mega-zord.
Goblin serum, it’ll bring the colour out in your eyes. And skin.
And you thought that Willem Dafoe wore an over the top suit in the first Spider-Man film. But this one is merging influences from both the Ultimate Spider-Man comics and cartoons.
Oscorp, looking as prominent as ever, and still not making an Avengers cameo.
Looks like Jaimie Foxx’s Electro is going to be overcharged and ready to rumble.
The last Spider-Man costume was a bit too odd for my tastes, but Webb has nailed it perfectly for the sequel.
Emma Stone is making me very, very grateful that she was cast in this film. She just lights up any scene she’s in, unlike Kirsten Dunst who had the exact opposite effect in the Raimi Spidey films.
This is what happens when the Blues Brothers rob a cash in transit vehicle.
Neo, eat your freakin’ heart out.
Dane DeHaan pitching up as Norman Osborn with a snazzy haircut and suit.
And he’s got some secrets to share with Peter.
It seems that Oscorp got sub-contracted by the NSA to snoop on citizens, including the Parkers.
Just look at that web-slinging action. Webb is nailing it.
What does Aunt May really know?
Times Square, when you need to have a proper super-villain brawl.
Peter is doing some investigating of his own, discovering secrets related to his parents.
Secrets mind you, that were supposed to be in the first film before Sony kicked down Webb’s door, tied him up and re-edited the film into your standard origin story.
Who’s this fellow with Goblin hair? He’s too big to be linked to the DeHaan goblin, so is it Norman after a dose of Goblin serum?
And on the right of this tour, you’ll find robotic harnesses worn by famed Spider-Man villains Dock Ock and The Vulture.
These six doors look…sinister.
And of course Harry gets further entangled in Webb’s web. (Editors note: We’re allowed one Webb pun per Spidey story).
Electric eels and mad science. What could possibly go wrong?
I have no idea who this guy is, but that looks like all kinds of animal and goblin based serums to me.
I think Dr Manhattan is going to sue somebody.
Digging that Goblin glider so far.
Not everyone has a happy ending, right Harry? Ol’ Norman is up to something, and he looks hellbent on not being dead.
Loving these iconic images of Spidey. Webb has ripped them straight from the comics, and they look sublime.
More of Richard Parker and his secrets, as he appears to be tussling with a younger Norman over those damn FAA regulations.
Electro seems to have god-like power, as one wave of his hand leaves New York electronics in ruins.
Yep, that’s Dane DeHaan as a Goblin alright, and he looks pretty cool actually.
Electro gets ready to cut loose on New York.
DIE JEDI I MEAN SPIDER-MAN!
Just how much damn power is Electro packing?
You want to live in a world without power? Electro just became Eskom.
And we finish the trailer off with Electro teleporting around spidey and throwing down some more force lightning. Shocking stuff indeed. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into twon next year, and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti and Sally Field.

I didn’t notice all of that going through the trailer.

Those six doors is where they kept the insidious six.

This looks really good so far, really enjoying the reboot more than the originals.
