This year, studios have taken to releasing the extremely expensive Super Bowl spots for their films days ahead of Sunday’s big game. Sony is a bit of an exception when it comes to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as they’ve only released part of the Super Bowl spot for director Marc Webb’s superhero sequel. This ad is tailor made for the widest audience possible, as it showcases the massive amount of action that will be onhand in the follow-up. Moreover, those curious as to the fate of Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy should be sufficiently tantalized by the final shot of this teaser, ensuring that many will be paying attention Sunday to see how the rest of the trailer plays out.
Hit the jump to watch the Super Bowl spot. The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 2nd.
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.
