'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Screens at CinemaCon - Enter, The Green Goblin

30 minutes of 3-D footage from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 screened at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Wednesday night (March 26, 2014). Cut into multiple segments, the movie was previewed in front of a packed audience at Caesars Palace and explained the death of Peter Parker's parents, played by Campbell Scott and Embeth Davidtz.

The preview also touched on the rekindling of Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) as they graduate from high school. According to a report in the Associated Press, "the pair's chemistry is still as strong as ever."

Elsewhere, the first meeting of Spider-Man and Max Dillion - played by Jamie Foxx, who becomes Electro - is introduced and the audience also became acquinated with Harry Osborne - played by Dane DeHaan, who later becomes the Green Goblin. The villains  are seen bonding with Electro over feeling lonely and neglected.

DeHaan's teen who is driven to madness looks positively terrifying in the sequel, with MTV describing him as having "green skin pickled with decay, rotting teeth, a pointed nose, wicked eyes and hair that looks as if it was grafted in tufts from a baboon."

It has been confirmed that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will introduce the villains for a Sinister Six movie.

"At the tail end of this movie we set up some of the other characters that will probably end up being in the Sinister Six," Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal told Entertainment Weekly in this week's cover story. "We're going forward on all fronts."

Reports suggest those characters could include Venom, Doc Ock, Vulture and Kraven, and producer Avi Arad spilled details on the former a few weeks ago.

"Venom hated only one guy - Spider-Man," Arad told SFX. "He wasn't innately bad, he was a shortcut guy, not really into fighting hard for achievement. That's the Venom story. Can he also be a good guy? As you know, Venom was also called 'lethal defender of the innocent.' We had a great history with him, especially caring for the homeless, which is a very sensitive issue and something that many of us are very concerned with. Our villains all represent a different side of the misunderstood, and some of them unfortunately turned to the dark side."
