While some people were looking forward to New Year’s Eve for the drinking and partying, some were looking forward to the Times Square festivities for one reason — the new Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer and footage that had been rumored to be debuting tonight.
That debut came and the new footage we saw further whet our appetites for what is in store for Marc Webb’s second installment in the new Amazing Spider-Man saga of films.
Here’s a look at the New Year’s Eve trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2:
If you need a refresher, here’s a quick synopsis of the film from Sony:
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on May 4, 2014.
