In 2011, The Amazing Spider-Man went to Comic-Con, and showed off the first footage of The Lizard (the reaction on Twitter from my peers seemed to be “That looks like Killer Croc, and I hope they do more work on the CGI”). The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to kick off the 2014 summer movie season, and so it looks like Sony is bringing the movie for a panel at this summer’s San Diego Comic-Con, which runs from July 18 – 21st. Jamie Foxx, who plays the villain Electro, tells Yahoo! Movies, “Now I’m just waiting to get to Comic-Con and see how people respond to it.” People will probably be enthusiastic. They love Spider-Man, and while The Amazing Spider-Man is a misfire, it didn’t kill off interest in the reboot. There’s still a great cast, and hopefully the script is stronger this time around.
The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.
