'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Trailer: Destruction and Electro

Here's the first look at the new superhero sequel

Andrew Garfield is back slinging webs, punishing evildoers and suffering just the right amount of superhero angst in the first official trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the follow-up to last year's franchise reboot. The trailer opens with Peter Parker pondering power and responsibility, while Spidey zips through the city catching cop cars and dodging machine gun bullet fire — just a little "traffic jam" he casually tells Gwen Stacey (Emma Stone).

The trailer also provides a first look at Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn, the young Oscorp Industries mogul who's not only spying on citizens but also harboring a world-changing technology developed by Peter's own father, Richard Parker. Electro, Spider-Man's new nemesis played by Jamie Foxx, also shows up amidst some epic shots of massive destruction, including Times Square crumbling at Electro's feet. You'll also catch a quick shot of Osborn donning the Green Goblin suit his father Norman developed.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in theaters May 2nd, 2014. The film will also be scored by a surprise supergroup comprising Pharrell Williams, former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger and film composer extraordinaire Hans Zimmer.
