The Wachowski Siblings will be among the fans of this latest clip from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In it, Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and Electro (Jamie Foxx) have a Times Square showdown. However, when Electro finally unleashes his powers on Spider-Man, we see Marc Webb‘s version of bullet-time. It’s a slow motion, spinning, digital tracking shot meant to duplicate Spider-Sense. In this case, it also tracks the devastating power of Electro’s electricity. More so than almost any of the previous sizzle reels, trailers or commercials, this one-minute clip should get you excited for the epic potential of the May 2 release. Check out this new Amazing Spider Man 2 clip below.
Thanks to MTV for the Amazing Spider Man 2 clip. Here goes.
That’s an impressive bit of visual effects from Webb’s team. Plus, assuming it’s one of the first times we see Electro fully unleash his powers, it’s also a great narrative tool to show the audience what Spider-Man is up against. Which is a lot.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens this week in the UK but May 2 in the US. Here’s the official plot description.
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.
