Sony Pictures has released a pair of new motion posters for director Marc Webb’s upcoming sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2. While the character of Spider-Man easily lends himself to the idea of a motion poster, these are more like short Vines that end with a still poster image. Nevertheless, if you’re itching to see more of Spidey’s web slinging in action, these should sufficiently appease that desire. Webb was recently confirmed to return to helm The Amazing Spider-Man 3, and all signs are pointing to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 setting up a gallery of villains that may or may not be explored in further entries from Sony’s planned Spider-Man movie universe.
Hit the jump to take a look at the motion posters. The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, Felicity Jones, and Paul Giamatti. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2nd.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man 2:
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.
