With Marvel doing an excellent job building buzz today for their upcoming 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' it seems 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' wants to step in and remind us that it is also coming shortly as they've just released the first clip from the film.
Here we see Max Dillon/Electro (as played by Jamie Foxx) facing Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) having just received his powers and unsure of which way he's going to go: Hero or villain. As the earlier footage and trailers showed that Foxx's Electro began life as an abused nerd, we were curious to see how he might fall into bad guy terrain. It looks like cops with itchy trigger fingers might be part of the reason.
Here's the film's synopsis:
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.
UPDATE: Another clip, featuring Gwen and Peter trapped in a closet to avoid some Oscorp authorities, has surfaced online, and we've included it below for your enjoyment!
