Does the New AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Trailer Spoil the Film’s Post-Credits Sequence?

     December 5, 2013


When a large poster for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released earlier this week, many were surprised to see that Sony had seemingly spoiled the appearance of one more villain in addition to Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Paul Giamatti’s Rhino.  Granted, there is every indication that the new Spidey franchise is building to a Sinister Six movie, but some fans were dismayed at possibly being spoiled on what could have been a very cool surprise—that is until the first trailer was released earlier today.  The new trailer is incredibly revealing when it comes to the growing number of baddies that Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker will seemingly face off against in the sequel, and now a report claims that said trailer also spoils the film’s post-credits sequence.

Hit the jump for more, but beware of possible spoilers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

One of the more fascinating shots from the debut trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is an extended shot of what appears to be the mechanical-makings of villains Doctor Octopus and Vulture.  The devices are seen in the background as we follow a mysterious hat-wearing man in what we presume is Oscorp, and all signs point to this being a tease for the appearance of the aforementioned villains in addition to Rhino, Electro, and now Dane DeHaan’s Green Goblin.


It’s a surprising shot to include in the trailer, but now the folks over at ScreenCrush claim that this is actually from the post-credits sequence that will be attached to The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  My initial thought was “that’s crazy, Sony wouldn’t do that,” until it was brought to my attention that Sony did just that with The Amazing Spider-Man.  In one of the theatrical trailers for director Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man reboot, there is an extended look at that film’s post-credits sequence involving the Lizard speaking to the aforementioned mysterious man in his jail cell.

Obviously since no one has seen The Amazing Spider-Man 2 just yet, it’s still possible that the Doc-Ock and Vulture scene is from the movie and not the post-credits sequence.  We know that there was significant tweaking on The Amazing Spider-Man in post-production, as many scenes from the initial trailers were cut from the finished film in order to stretch this new Peter Parker mythology over the course of a trilogy.  As such, it’s also possible that the post-production process on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 could result in further tweaking to how the mythology plays out.  Whatever the case, Sony is clearly very bullish on expanding the Spidey universe to include a large number of villains.

Watch the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man that spoils the first film’s post-credits sequence below.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.
