Spider-Man is about to take on a whole mess of villains in the sequel.

First 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Trailer Has Arrived

The big news in movie world today concerns the first trailer for the blockbuster sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It debuted today, and what a trailer it is. They are packing a lot into this film: I counted at least three villains (Rhino, Electro and the early stages of the Green Goblin, though Easter Eggs ), romance with Gwen Stacy, more information about the demise of his parents and the rise of OsCorp.

That's a lot to pack into a movie. The first movie ran over two hours with just one villain, so I expect this film to top that mark. If director Marc Webb can successfully juggle all of this while cohesively advancing the narrative in the Spider-Man world he's created, then it's fine. But we need to remember what happened in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, which was too convoluted and tried to do way too much at once. 

I thought the reboot did a fairly straightforward job of introducing this version of Peter Parker with Andrew Garfield wearing the suit. He and Emma Stone both were terrific in The Amazing Spider-Man, and the additions of actors like Paul Giamatti, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan and Chris Cooper to this sequel will only increase the quality (at least on paper) of the product. It still has to be handled with care, and at this point I want to see where they take all of this.
