The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is over five months away, but the marketing is already picking up steam to ensure butts are in seats this coming May. It would be silly to call a film that earned $750 million worldwide a failure, but director Marc Webb‘s first Amazing Spider-Man was definitely a bit underwhelming. Story-wise it felt like little more than an unnecessary reboot, and that shows in its ranking as the lowest grossing of the four Spider-Man feature films.

Sony already has plans (and release dates!) for two more films in their ‘amazing’ franchise, but first up will be Spidey’s “greatest battle” yet as he (Andrew Garfield) goes head to head with Electro (Jamie Foxx) and The Rhino (Paul Giamatti). Judging by the new teaser below though his greatest threat may actually be Stan Lee‘s blathering intro.

Check it out below along with another new pic (courtesy of EmpireOnline), but fair warning, the second pic may or may not constitute a spoiler for some of you.

There’s not a lot to it obviously, but if we can extrapolate anything from the teaser it’s probably that the film’s special effects got more attention than the script. “Need a hand?” Seriously? It fits the character, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. On the flip side though I do like Garfield, Webb, and much of the cast including Emma Stone and Felicity Jones.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2, 2014.
