Even though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 now has at least three villains, I’m still assuming Electro (Jamie Foxx) is the lead threat ahead of Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) and Rhino (Paul Giamatti). Electro’s been featured the most heavily in the marketing, although that could be because Foxx is highly recognizable to mainstream audiences. Two new images keep the focus on the superpowered baddie, who starts out as the feeble Max Dillon. As we all know, Peter Parker is the only meek person who can get superpowers and not go power-mad.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Colm Feore, B.J. Novak, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field. The 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.
