WOW. I absolutely love Spider-Man, and was a huge fan of last year’s The Amazing Spider-Man film. I’ve had high hopes for the sequel, which have remained constant while the rest of the internet seems to think it’s going to suck or become the next Spider-Man 3. Yes, this movie is packed with villains. But if you know anything about Spidey, it’s that he’s constantly got people trying to kill him left and right and often faces off against multiple people at once.
I for one and stoked that they’re upping the ante with this one and really challenging Peter Parker. They could have easily gone with a generic sequel, complete with another Lizard-esque villain storyline that slowly moves the overarching story along. But thankfully they didn’t, and it appears that this sequel will be wall to wall intense and take Spider-Man to places we’ve never seen before.
Right now I’m working on a post over at WhatCulture breaking down the new things we learned from the trailer, and I’ll have that posted as soon as it’s up! In the meantime, check out the trailer for yourself and let me know what you think!
