Electro Rises In New ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Trailer [Video]

Electro TASM2

While it mostly consists of familiar trailer footage until about the 1:30 mark, Sony’s new The Amazing Spider-Man 2 does deliver on its 3-minute “Rise of Electro” title thereafter. You can see a very blue Jamie Foxx tear up Times Square after the jump.

Electro’s not the only villain in the trailer. The very mecha Rhino (Paul Giamatti), Dane Dehaan (Harry Osborn and… maybe that other guy) are on hand. Although there’s no B.J. Novak as Alistair Smythe.

So far Electro’s blind rage seems about as motivated as Edward Nygma’s in Batman Forever, which is… not a compliment. Hopefully Foxx (and the film’s script), can help make the historically straightforward villain — and the others — a little more three-dimensional or it’ll be a flat affair no matter how many pairs of lenticular shades you pop on in theaters this summer.



The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens on May 2.
