New ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Photos Put the Spotlight on Electro
Sony is starting their marketing blitz for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ a move that should culminate Thursday with the release of the film’s first trailer. But before we get to see these characters in motion, new stills have emerged to highlight the hero and his new main villain Electro (Jamie Foxx).
As featured on USA Today‘s website, star/Spider-Man Andrew Garfield and director Marc Webb talked about the film and Garfield had this to say about his relationship with his new main foe: “Electro is a god in terms of the power that he wields. To be faced with that creates a whole host of problems, obstacles and drama. That’s great to have between those two people.” As Webb notes the character starts as a fan of the web-slinger, but turns against him.
Webb also adds that Spidey is “really getting the thrills of that virtuosity. That’s going to be a side of him you’ll want to relish. This time, there’s a jollity we’ve really embraced.” So he’s going to have fun, even though his relationship with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) may not end well.
And though it looks like Electro is the main bad guy in this movie, we’re curious about the roles of the Osbourne family in the movie as we keep hearing about the Sinister Six, and it’s apparent that either the Green Goblin and/or the Hobgoblin show up in the new film. Webb says that “Oscorp is the evil empire and will always be a major player in these films.” Good to know. ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ opens May 2, 2014 and that new trailer will be online Thursday, but until then here are the new photos:
