First Look at ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’

What: “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”

Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti and Sally Field

Writers: Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner

Director: Marc Webb

The story: Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Garfield) battles Electro (Foxx), The Rhino (Giamatti), The Green Goblin (DeHaan) and more, all while trying to reconnect with Gwen Stacy (Stone), in this sequel.

The buzz: Its predecessor brought in nearly $500 million worldwide, but “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is the fifth Spidey movie in the past 12 years. Sony is certainly hoping audiences aren’t burned out on the Webslinger, though, as two more sequels already are confirmed as well as two spinoffs starring Venom and the Sinister Six.
