Sony Pictures have today released a new featurette for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and it features tons of action-packed and hilarious scenes from the highly anticipated sequel. There are also interviews with director Marc Webb and stars Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) and Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy).

However, the footage does reveal what could be classified as a surprise cameo from a character from the first movie, so if you’re avoiding spoilers, you might want to look away at around the 0.45 mark!

It definitely looks like humour and action will be a major part of the superhero sequel, and this featurette should help move the movie up many “Most Highly Anticipated of 2014” lists. What do you think? Let us know in the comment section below!

In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Chris Cooper and Paul Giamatti, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to be released in the UK on 18th April and in the US on May 2nd.
