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.

    Wouldn’t put it past Sony to do this. Although even if the scene had been withheld, would anyone really have been surprised at this post-credit scene? The Sinister Six, at least in my memory, does have to have six villains…

  • Thomas K.

    I believe it is, and…
    That’s got to be the Chameleon. Right?
    Also, pretty sure they show a quick shot of Mysterio, around the 1:28 mark. People are going to say that’s Electro, but I don’t think it is.
    Both could be from the post-credit sequence.

      Pretty sure it’s Electro and not Mysterio. Are you talking about the top of the round, blue-ish head that you can see? That’s Electro strapped into some sort of harness device that is swiveling. You can see plenty of pictures already released of Electro in that contraption as it moves as well as video of him strapped in as well.

      • Thomas K.

        Yeah, went back and paused it again, I’m pretty sure you’re right. It looked a lot rounder at first glance.
        My Bad, ignore My idiotic self.

    How does it spoil it?

    • Norrtron

      By revealing what it is.

  • Dave

    it’s a flashback scene. watch the trailer again. it shows Richard Parker talking how OsCorps wanted to use his tech etc. Morons.

    • Doctor Reality

      That’s how it’s edited, yes (that’s what they do in trailers). But it could go either way.

  • Colin Christian

    Of everything in all the Spidey flicks they got right it was Dr.Octopus.He was THE one thing that was perfect,I really don’t understand why they are rebooting him,there are plenty of other characters to chose from

    • The Flobbit

      Can’t touch Alfred Molina!

    • maximus

      they are building up for a sinister six movie…and whats a sinister six without doc ock?…but yes your right..the one character they got spot on

  • ʝoe ßloggs

    So basically Oscorp has invented some part of all Spidey’s major villains?

    • Strong Enough


  • Dedpool

    Having the scene in the trailer doesn’t really kill much as that post credit scene from ASM wasn’t ruined. That scene in the ASM2 trailer got me super excited. I don’t think we’ll see Vulture or Ock in this movie but may get to meet an Adrian Toomes and a Doctor Octavius. I like that they’re setting up a bigger world.
    Also I think either the Chameleon or Mysterio is the one in the hall.

    • JBug

      IMO, it’s a total let down when they tease you with points that don’t have anything to do with the movie. It’s teasing for something not meant to be teased until after the movie. Why are they getting us excited about Vulture and Oc if they don’t have anything to do with ASM2? Sony is so focused on building a big world that it is becoming obvious it doesn’t have any faith in it’s individual films.

    Is it an issue if they have spoiled the post credits sequence? For anyone clued in enough to decode the bevy of action and villains in the trailer, as well as the news surrounding the production in general, they know where the series is heading. For anyone who isn’t they’re none the wiser.
