As well as THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 seeing a new clip debut at yesterday's Superbowl, a pretty awesome looking new trailer, seeing Spidey's villains unite, has surfaced. Now certain quarters are approaching THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2's release with extreme caution for fear of character overkill *cough* SPIDER-MAN 3 *double cough* X-MEN: THE LAST STAND *cough* but, to the majority of us here at Starburst, we've got an excited anticipation for the return of ol' Webhead.

First up, here's the complete Superbowl spot:

And it that's not enough for you, check out this extended new trailer that gives us a further look at the sequel's villains. And is it just us or is it that ominous voice and shadowy gentleman with the hat screaming Doctor Octopus?

The official synopsis for Marc Webb's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN follow-up reads:

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, Peter Parker finds that a great conflict lies ahead.

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 realise that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

Complete with some new, fan-pleasing duds, Andrew Garfield returns as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy and Sally Field as Aunt May. Joining the series, we have Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon/Electro, Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn/Green Goblin, Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich/Rhino, Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn, Colm Feore as Donald Menken, Martin Csokas as Dr. Kafka, and Felicity Jones and BJ Novak in unconfirmed roles. Novak is long-rumoured to be playing Otto Octavius and Jones has been similarly rumoured for Felicia Hardy/Black Cat.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 is released worldwide on 2nd May, although we UK folks get the sequel on 18th April. After that, it's already been confirmed that we'll be getting THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 4 and two spin-off movies in the form of VENOM and THE SINISTER SIX.

Quoting Paul Mount:
Still no J Jonah Jameson though...

Sadly not. One's gotta think it's coming, especially as the Bugle is referenced, including Bugle fans spotted. Hopefully they're keeping it as a surprise. I'm not one for "crossing beams" but it'd take a lot to top JK Simmons.
