New 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Trailer Looks Awesome, But How Will It Do Against 'The Winter Soldier?'

There’s one big piece of news on the entertainment circuit that you should be paying attention to: how cool is the new Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer. According to popular opinion, it is with stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone that the franchise has really found its footing and this second film from Garfield’s trilogy looks pretty much amazing, judging from the trailer, released yesterday.

The special effects look particularly gorgeous.

We already know that the masked superhero will be taking on a trio of The Green Goblin (Chris Cooper) The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Electro (Jamie Foxx,) the latter of whom has a particularly cool scene in the trailer, as he goes after Spider-Man with whips of static electricity. Not to mention that his one line in the trailer is said with enough power to convert any non-believers in Foxx’s aptitude for the role. The point of the trailer is fairly obvious: Electro is coming and the lights are going out. In fact, that could make for some sneaky real-world parallels and maybe a power/electricity analogy here and there, which Marvel have obviously caught on to. 

Check out the highly anticipated trailer below.

It may be a bit difficult for this Marvel sideliner, also set for a 2014 release date, to steal away some thunder from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which is due just about a month earlier. However, the special effects in this look pretty impressive, as do the actors. We’re still a bit iffy on Paul Giamatti, who has his highs and lows, but everything else looks set for a solid superhero movie.

And Garfield does make an excellent Peter Parker/Spider-Man.

The only thing Spidey doesn’t have going for him right now is the additional buzz of the Avengers franchise, which is sure to offer a solid boost to Winter Soldier profits. But then with a cast which includes Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Sally Field and Martin Sheen among others, it looks like this one will be betting more on good old-fashioned film glamour, rather than blockbuster grandeur.

Judging from the trailer, Jamie Foxx looks and sounds perfectly convincing as Electro.
