Hi-Res Version of the Triptych Banner for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

     December 3, 2013


A few days ago, we posted a lo-res version of the banner for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  Sony has now released an official version, and there’s really nothing to hide.  Green Goblin is on there, and if you look behind Electro’s shoulder, you can see who’s playing him.  The Rhino armor is much clearer (I assume some people will be upset that it’s not Paul Giamatti in a Rhino costume, which would look silly, but also be pretty hilarious) and you can make out little details like the OsCorp and Daily Bugle logos.

Hit the jump to check out the banner.  The film also stars The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Chris Cooper, Felicity Jones, B.J. Novak, Colm Feore, and Sally FieldThe Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man 2:

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

    I didn’t love the first one, but I’m honestly very surprised at how terrible this looks.

    • JudgeMethos

      Well, Sony doesn’t wanna give the license back to its owner in Disney/Marvel cuz it makes so much money for them. Hopefully, the movies’ stop making money and they eventually give it back. Marvel will do Spidey justice. Sony’s greed in trying to replicated the Avengers formula may yet backfire with all the characters they want to introduce.

    rhino…. Zoids anyone?

  • Jason Richards

    This looks like rubbish. Why in the hell haven’t they done Carnage as a villain yet? I mean if you were going to reboot the series start off with venom and then introduce Carnage. That’s 2 movies worth of material right there. Bollocks.

    • Nerdgasm

      Dumbest idea every. Venom and Carnage are villains that need incubation. You can’t have Venom and Carnage his two most brutal and hard to defeat villains be his first thing out of the gate…. dumb fucking idea.

      • Ridge

        there’s a rumour of Jim Carrey playing Carnage, he showed up on set so who knows…

      • Baz Hood

        Yeah, kinda but from one perspective this is the 5th Spidey movie inside not too long of a time. Cutting out the same old origin story, that we all know, could’ve just cut to the chase and given us some cool shit. Instead we got a piss poor rehashing of what we’ve seen before.

  • Peter

    I can’t at people saying how terruble this looks without even looking at a trailer. I don’t judge a movie by its poster it’s pretty stupid so I’ll just wait for footage to make a call

    • Nerdgasm

      I totally agree. A lot of the time the marketing people are very out of touch with the feeling the movie should deliver and are bent on just making the movie sell which means giving SMALL characters poster space and using bright campy characters specially when it comes to Superhero Movies.

  • JimmyParker

    Whats that on top of the rents add on the right side? Could it be The Vulture?

    • Nerdgasm

      No. It’s just another billboard. shut up. and if you are talking about the Screen next to it that’s obviously Gobby.

      • brNdon

        What did your parents do to you, Nerdgasm? You’re such an asshole. You pick on the most innocent comment on this article. Get a life.

    • JudgeMethos

      That’s what I thought but it mat just be a picture.

  • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

    Damnit! The rhino robot was a bad idea. It’s like the new idea in superhero films is robots/driods (Iron Man films, Transformers, Robocop, Batman Vs. Superman rumored to be Batdriods). Why couldn’t they have just stuck to the classic version of Rhino instead of the Ultimate route? I’m not a big fan of the Ultimate Universe especially Spiderman’s enemies. Seeing that classic version would just be so much better of a human wearing an armoured suit. Disapointing but hopefully the trailer on Thursday will prove me wrong.

    • Nerdgasm

      I don’t think you can really rope Transformers or Iron Man into that whole thing as they both started the trend (In the movies atleast.) AND there is no other way to get around both of the properties. The mandarin is the only worth while villain that Iron man has that isn’t in a suit… Iron Monger, Whiplash, Crimson Dynamo and Ultimo are all robotic suits.And Transformers… well… that is self explanatory. You can’t blame a product to being part of a trend WHEN THEY EXACTLY WHAT THE TREND IS ALL ABOUT and have both been around for years. But putting the rumored Batdriods, The Rhino (This is nothing like the Ultimate Rhino) The new Take on Robocop and even The Wolverine for cashing in on the trend of Iron Man and Transformers.

      • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

        OK I’ll give you Transformers and Iron Man as they did start a trend (and rightfully so as it mirrors their source material) but now every studio sees it as a way to keep things more “realistic” by adding robots into the mix. It was refeshing w Iron Man but it has now worn it’s welcome. I honestly am just over it and now w X Men introducing us to the Sentinals next summer (something I am actually excited about) I think the public will start to feel the same. I have a feeling that by 2017 the superhero films will be on a downward trend as the boxoffice returns will start to greatly diminish as people will be tired of seeing reboot after reboot of the same properties (Batman, Spiderman, Superman, Wolverine, The Hulk, etc.).

  • Oviraptor

    Rhino just looks stupid, his head looks like a Tiki doll’s.

  • scheebles

    Everyone is complaining about how the Rhino looks stupid… the Rhino I can totally write off as a second act obstacle for Peter. What’s really worrisome is the Goblin. He’s got central poster rights. Why? Why try to shoehorn the introduction of two “transformation” villains in one film? They must be REALLY eager to get to the Sinister Six…

    • Nerdgasm

      i wouldn’t jump the gun there too fast. Colossus got a poster position for X2 when they released the Fanned Character one where all the characters had a corner of the poster. So his was the same size as like Ice Man and Pyro and he wasn’t really even in the movie in his metal form. I think maybe it counted for like what? 5 seconds of film IF that.

      • scheebles

        True, but Colossus isn’t the ultimate arch-nemesis of the X-Men. Goblin is. Or he’s at the very least, the original Big Bad. The fact that Harry is being introduced in this film and that I’m looking at Dane DeHaan in full Goblin make-up on the film’s first poster is a pretty big sign that we will see his transformation in the film.

  • Runeilinn

    Does anyone else notice the picture on Electro’s third of the poster. Theres one picture of Spider-man’s face and then there is another right next to it of someone who is obviously not Peter. It looks like DeHaan. Could this be Goblin’s face?

    • scheebles

      “Welcome to the party, pal.”

    • Ridge

      It looks like DeHaan is going to have an organic transformation, his ears are spiky and have a green tone like the lizard… I have a lot of curiosity to watch this movie.

  • Jack le Critic

    The poster looks unfinished…Electro looks Palpatine-esque, Rhino has a
    touch of the Zoids as noted by Tim, Green Goblin is too distant but could be a Naruto stand in…and a lot of blue sky inbetween :s

  • Tom

    It’s kind of paining how it’s reversed this time. The Lizard didn’t look totally ridiculous in the first film but that Goblin looks horrible. And Spideys new suit looks great this time while horrible looking previously. I’m going to save my criticism until I actually see it though, unlike everyone in the comments for every Spidey article posted on Collider.

  • doctor_robot

    a freaky dehaan pic in the upper left-hand corner. looks like he’s had some sort of accident. i loved the first one… very interested in seeing where this one goes.

  • lordjim

    well the last one was not great, but still enjoyable and he actually got the character of spiderman right (didn´t like the raimi movies in that matter, and sam raimi was so much better in his low budget days) so i´m still kind of looking forward to it.hope they keep the origin stories (yawn) short this time.

  • Captain

    They do the spiderman suit right but they fu***p the rest!. I am angry more with green goblin look than with cyborg Rhino. Both sucks though. The comic book genre is going to die soon. Rushing spider six and batman with superman all for the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    • brNdon

      Agree on some level, but I think Marvel studios is doing ok.

      • paul h

        This isn’t a Marvel Studios film, they licensed Spidey to Sony way way back and, as I understand it, Marvel don’t really have much of say in what stories they decide to tell or how they go about it.

      • brNdon

        Yea. I know. Captain was talking about all comic movies and I said that Marvel studios is doing ok. As in, Marvel studios is doing well with making superhero movies as opposed to other studios.

  • jk

    3 villains? Was nothing learned from Spider-Man 3?

    • Baz Hood

      Oops I just posted that too, sorry. That’ll teach me to read down the posts. Totally agree though.

  • mattritchey

    *sigh* Oh, well, the Spidey suit looks cool……

  • ArmandoSanchez8233

    Dane Dehaan is the Green Goblin?

  • NameNamerson

    I know Directors like to take liberties and make the characters their own, but that Rhino looks ridiculous! I mean where is Paul Giamatti? Is he inside the Rhino?! Is it going to be on all fours all the time or is going to transform into a humanoid form? So many questions.
    As for Electro and Green Goblin, they look alright. Green Goblin would look better in the shadows or as a silhouette. Leave something for the imagination. Electro looks cool but the jumping pose is not working in that pic. He would look better standing still on a car or off in the distance or something. All in all, it looks pretty epic and colorful, just the way a Spider-Man film should be. Can’t believe this is all building up to the Sinister Six! Can Not Wait!

  • Colin Christian

    Confirmed. The Rhino sucks. A Mac truck with legs. That is not ‘re-imagining’,it’s just awful.Who said yes to this? The money guys or the director?

    • Brandon

      Dude, you don’t even know what they’re doing with the character yet. Giamatti is signed for 2 movies. They’ll probably give him powers and the suit near the end of this movie to jump out the gate at the start of the 3rd. Chillax, man.

  • Colin Christian

    I always liked Spidey because I thought he had THE best villains,clever,visually interesting,animal themed…cool.What a let down,I used to love The Rhino.

  • sense11

    looks like Harry had a very bad accident

  • Cedhollywood

    If you are over forty years old and had fondness for the Rhino from the comics and the old sixties tv animated version,that thing on the left is too laughable to even consider taking this movie seriously.

    • diego

      Im not 40, its enough to be in your 30′s..

  • spongefist

    The first one was worst superhero movie of all time, worse than daredevil.

    However this one looks like a great improvement.

    1. Green Goblins face actually looks like a goblin, no silly mask

    2. The Rhino-bot looks fantastic, it means we don’t have to put up with some stupid genetic mutation or guy in a suit.

    3. Electro looks not bad at all.

    • Brandon


  • Brandon

    I’m not too worried about the direction this is heading regarding Rhino. Paul Giamatti is already known to be sticking around for 2 movies, so it seems pretty obvious that he’ll start off in some sort of Oscorp tech suit before being offered a deal he can’t refuse in the form of another Oscorp science experiment granting genetic transformation and super strength. If I had to bet money, I’d venture to guess that Rhino-bot will be featured in the bulk of the film, but we’ll see Giamatti’s character more than happy to completely transform himself for vengeance near the end of the film after suffering extensive public humiliation at the hands of Spider-Man. This way, Rhino is primed to explode into the start of the 3rd movie.

  • Brandon

    Rhino also appears to be packing quite a bit of ammunition. Internal chain gun?

  • Nick Harley

    The Rhino is a bot in the Ultimates comics, which these movies are clearly trying to emulate. Chill out. Everyone is so over protective and reactionary to these Spiderman films in some misguided allegiance to Rami’s good, far from great, attempts. Andrew Garfield is more Spidey than Tobey Maguire ever was or will be, and the reboot, though flawed, really showed great potential and real understanding of character and appreciation for character arc, so please, quit complaining nonsensically over a poster. I mean, jesus, it’s not even a trailer.

  • The Flobbit

    Honestly, this looks really terrible. The Spidey suit is excellent, but the Rhino looks like some anime/manga character, the Green Goblin looks like a Chucky marionette, and Electro just looks fake. Not a lot of hope for this movie. Not a lot of hope.

  • Johnson

    I feel optimistic about this – I think it looks good.

  • Baz Hood

    Sheeeesh, didn’t Raimis’ 3rd Spidey film already try the too many villains in the one film thing?!?! Isn’t it all a bit pointless anyway, so soon after Raimis’ so so take on the franchise?! A nd the first one was pretty lame-o!
