The-Amazing-Spider-Man-2-Triptych-BannerAhead of the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 this Thursday, a low-res look at a very impressive triptych banner has recently been doing the rounds online. Sony has finally stepped in to offer a higher quality version, and it is pretty epic.

If you thought that The Amazing Spider-Man was an action-packed blockbuster, then you can be sure that the sequel is going to deliver even more, with Spidey facing off against Electro, Green Goblin, and Rhino.

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.

Andrew Garfield is front and centre once more as Peter Parker / Spider-Man. Emma Stone stars opposite as Gwen Stacy in the female lead, with the two joined by another great cast, led by Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Chris Cooper, Brian Haley, Colm Feore, and B.J. Novak.

Marc Webb returns to the helm for the sequel, with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek, Transformers) and Jeff Pinkner (Fringe, Lost) co-writing the script, based on a previous draft by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man).

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to be released in 3D on 18th April, 2014 in the UK, and a little later on May 2nd in the US. And if you can’t wait until Thursday for the full trailer, then you can go back in the meantime and watch the trailer teasers to see what Webb and co. have in store for us next summer.

Since graduating, I spend as much time as possible watching films/TV shows, reading books, and listening to music. So getting to write about what I love is nothing short of awesome. Biggest film-related hope for 2014/ever: Guy Ritchie announcing the RocknRolla sequel is finally moving forward.
