The film sees Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) more comfortable in his costume these days and enjoying his Spider abilities, along with girlfriend Gwen Stacey (Emma Stone). But his good mood is about to be tested when new villains appear in the shape of Jamie Foxx's Elektro and Paul Giamatti's heavily armoured Rhino, with rich kid Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) telling Peter that he's been under surveillance by Oscorp. Not to mention our first official reveal of DeHaan as the reinvented Green Goblin.
Director Marc Webb has also been insisting that the multiple villains angle is more about world building than overstuffing the film and the focus definitely appears to be on Electro in this entry. Given that the third and fourth films are already in development, we're hopeful that means this second entry can overcome some of the plot issues of the first.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits cinemas on 18 April 2014.
