Everything that you may have missed in that first trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

4 min read

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.

Amazing spidey 2 (1)

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.

Amazing spidey 2 (2)

Amazing spidey 2 (4)

Gargoyles, good for contemplation and make-shift seats for arachnid-themed vigilantes.

Amazing spidey 2 (5)

Amazing spidey 2 (6)

I love how Webb has created a Spider-Man with a distinct moveset, that really takes inspiration from his totem creature.

Amazing spidey 2 (7)

Don’t forget, Peter possesses the proportionate speed, agility and strength of a spider.

Amazing spidey 2 (8)

Peter doing some more contemplation, possibly at the grave of either his uncle Ben or Captain Stacy.


Amazing spidey 2 (9)

Yep, that’s definitely Paul Giamatti climbing into his rhino-themed mega-zord.

Amazing spidey 2 (11)

Goblin serum, it’ll bring the colour out in your eyes. And skin.

Amazing spidey 2 (12)

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.

Amazing spidey 2 (13)

Oscorp, looking as prominent as ever, and still not making an Avengers cameo.

Amazing spidey 2 (14)

Looks like Jaimie Foxx’s Electro is going to be overcharged and ready to rumble.

Amazing spidey 2 (15)

Amazing spidey 2 (17)

The last Spider-Man costume was a bit too odd for my tastes, but Webb has nailed it perfectly for the sequel.

Amazing spidey 2 (20)

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.

Amazing spidey 2 (22)

This is what happens when the Blues Brothers rob a cash in transit vehicle.

Amazing spidey 2 (23)

Amazing spidey 2 (24)

Neo, eat your freakin’ heart out.

Amazing spidey 2 (25)

Amazing spidey 2 (27)

Dane DeHaan pitching up as Norman Osborn with a snazzy haircut and suit.

Amazing spidey 2 (28)

And he’s got some secrets to share with Peter.

Amazing spidey 2 (29)

It seems that Oscorp got sub-contracted by the NSA to snoop on citizens, including the Parkers.

Amazing spidey 2 (30)

Just look at that web-slinging action. Webb is nailing it.

Amazing spidey 2 (32)

What does Aunt May really know?

Amazing spidey 2 (33)

Times Square, when you need to have a proper super-villain brawl.

Amazing spidey 2 (34)

Peter is doing some investigating of his own, discovering secrets related to his parents.

Amazing spidey 2 (35)

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.

Amazing spidey 2 (36)

Amazing spidey 2 (37)

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?

Amazing spidey 2 (38)

And on the right of this tour, you’ll find robotic harnesses worn by famed Spider-Man villains Dock Ock and The Vulture.

Amazing spidey 2 (40)

These six doors look…sinister.

Amazing spidey 2 (41)

And of course Harry gets further entangled in Webb’s web. (Editors note: We’re allowed one Webb pun per Spidey story).

Amazing spidey 2 (42)

Electric eels and mad science. What could possibly go wrong?

Amazing spidey 2 (43)

I have no idea who this guy is, but that looks like all kinds of animal and goblin based serums to me.

Amazing spidey 2 (44)

I think Dr Manhattan is going to sue somebody.

Amazing spidey 2 (45)

Digging that Goblin glider so far.

Amazing spidey 2 (46)

Amazing spidey 2 (47)

Not everyone has a happy ending, right Harry? Ol’ Norman is up to something, and he looks hellbent on not being dead.

Amazing spidey 2 (48)

Loving these iconic images of Spidey. Webb has ripped them straight from the comics, and they look sublime.

Amazing spidey 2 (49)

More of Richard Parker and his secrets, as he appears to be tussling with a younger Norman over those damn FAA regulations.

Amazing spidey 2 (50)

Electro seems to have god-like power, as one wave of his hand leaves New York electronics in ruins.

Amazing spidey 2 (51)

Amazing spidey 2 (52)

Yep, that’s Dane DeHaan as a Goblin alright, and he looks pretty cool actually.

Amazing spidey 2 (53)

Amazing spidey 2 (55)

Electro gets ready to cut loose on New York.

Amazing spidey 2 (56)

Amazing spidey 2 (57)


Amazing spidey 2 (58)

Just how much damn power is Electro packing?

Amazing spidey 2 (60)

You want to live in a world without power? Electro just became Eskom.

Amazing spidey 2 (61)

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.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
