Sometimes movie previews released on special occasions are just gimmicks. In the case of the New Year’s Eve trailer that dropped for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ though, there seems to be a slightly more organic connection to the holiday in question.
In the trailer released last night, we see Jamie Foxx’s Electro getting his hands on some of the juice that courses through Times Square, making the timing of the clip especially appropriate. Among other things, it appears he can fly, or at least levitate, meaning he should provide a high-flying challenge for Andrew Garfield in his second stint as Spider-Man.
We also get a very quick glimpse of the Rhino battlesuit, which undoubtedly will get more time in the spotlight as we get closer to the film’s May 2 release date. There are a couple of wisecracks from Garfield as Spidey shows off his strength. And topping it all off is an introduction by an excited Stan Lee (as if there’s any other state for him!) who is slated to make the latest in his long series of cameos.
In case you were too busy ringing in 2014 to see the trailer when it debuted, here it is in all its electricity-filled glory:
