It was previously revealed that 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' would not have an end-credit scene, even though the trend has become standard with Marvel-produced films (and though the last 'Spider-Man' movie had one), and would instead feature footage from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' Yet now Sony has alerted us there will be a sequence touting future Spider-Adventures, but not the way you'd expect.
While we'll likely never see Spider-Man fighting side by side on the big screen with the Avengers, you can see all your favorite heroes teaming up in a different arena with Marvel Universe LIVE!, a new traveling production set to hit the road this summer. And now you can go behind the scenes with this new featurette on the upcoming production, which unites all your favorite Marvel heroes and villains for one spectacular show.
With the recent news that 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' would feature footage from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' as its post-credit sequence, it opened the door to the idea of possible future crossovers. But the producers of the current Spider-Man movies are pretty positive we'll never see the web slinger working alongside Tony Stark.
Though we're still a couple weeks away from the release of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Sony is really excited about their 'Spider-Man' brand plans, as they've all but confirmed that 'The Cabin in the Woods' helmer Drew Goddard will be directing 'The Sinister Six,' which Goddard is also currently writing.
Saving the day, getting the girl, being a good guy -- it's all in a day's work for Peter Parker and his alter ego, Spider-Man. But as director Marc Webb notes in this new featurette for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Peter's going to learn the hard way in the sequel that he can't have it all because "life doesn't work that way." Webb teases the famous storyline between Peter and girlfriend Gwen Stacy, as well as Spidey's greatest threat yet: the Sinister Six.
Since photos of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' set hit the web last year and depicted Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy wearing an all-too-familiar outfit to fans of the Spider-Man comics, we've been wondering what will happen in the film when Spidey's best gal gets mixed up in his drama with Electro, Rhino and Green Goblin. Our fears are not subdued upon the debut of new 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' pics, which don't bode well for Ms. Stacy.
It didn't come as much of a surprise when Sony revealed that there would be two more sequels following 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' in 2016 and 2018. What did come as a surprise was the announced spinoffs, which would delve even further into the Spider-Man universe. The most interesting of them is also the strangest: 'The Sinister Six,' a movie starring a roster of Spidey's deadliest enemies.
And according to new statements from Sony, the seeds for this film have been planted in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.'
At this point it feels like we've seen pretty much all of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' with all the trailers, clips, previews, sneak peeks and photos released from the film. But, if you're still not sure if you want to see it in theaters, there's yet another 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' trailer - the final trailer! - here for your viewing enjoyment.
Despite the film's many villains, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' director Marc Webb doesn't believe the movie will collapse under their weight, especially since he says Electro is the main antagonist, with Rhino and Green Goblin appearing in more minor capacities. Though, as the new 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' clip previews, these supporting baddies still offer some thrills.
