Here is your first full look at The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the biggest movie ever shot in New York City.
The trailer is filled with juicy details for fans, including all sorts of bad guy reveals. As he notes in voiceover at the beginning of the spot, Peter Parker realizes that as he continues to protect New York City, the procession of bad guys trying to ground his high-flying teenage ass is only going to get bigger and tougher.
Another big reveal: In this reboot of the franchise, Peter’s parents play way more of a role, even in death; his dad, Richard Parker, has an important hidden backstory that informs the rise of Oscorp.
