As revelers crowded into New York City’s Times Square last night to ring in the New Year, Electro (Jamie Foxx) was dropping by the iconic intersection for a different, far more nefarious reason.
In a new clip from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that debuted at last night’s festivities, the supervillain makes a pit stop in midtown Manhattan to soak up some of its electricity and to release some of his fury. Luckily, our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) is on hand to try and stop him. Check out the clip after the jump.

New York City is home to lots of costumed heroes, from Brooklyn boy Steve Rogers to Hell’s Kitchen fighter Matt Murdock to “Gotham City” (we all know what that’s a stand-in for) crusader Bruce Wayne. But there can only be one ”Official Super Hero of Times Square 2014,” and this year, it’s our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
As viewers the nation over tune in to watch the New Year’s Eve ball drop, Spidey will be dropping in to celebrate with the crowd — and premiere some new footage from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In preparation, Spider-Man recently swung up to the top of the iconic sphere itself. Naturally, Marvel Entertainment was on hand to capture video of his visit into a nice, tidy promo. Check it out after the jump.

Seeing so much of Electro well before The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens should have been a tip-off of some sort. For a while, we knew that Marc Webb‘s sequel would feature the Rhino and at least one Osborn, but it seemed like Jamie Foxx, as Electro, would be the real center of the movie.
But we know now that one of the Osborns will end up suiting up as the Green Goblin (or some variant of the character) and that this is all building to a Sinister Six film, in which a bunch of bad guys get to take center stage. And still, it’s Electro that we’re seeing the most of, while Sony keeps the detailed Rhino and Goblin reveals for a later date.
There are two new Electro shots online, and you can see them below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The first posters for Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 were epic. Three separate images, each revealing its own villain, combining to create one massive, stunning image. That’s exactly what the Spider-Man universe will doing too, with the recent announcements of Venom and Sinister Six movies after The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
All that imminent world building gets rolled into four words on the latest teaser poster for the May 2 release. It’s just Spider-Man, with New York at his feet, and the ominous declaration “His greatest battle begins.” That electricity is probably a bad thing too. Check it out below. Read More »
