Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 was highly criticised for its extensive use of too many villains so when it was announced that Electro, The Rhino and the Green Goblin would all be sharing the screen in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, fans were rightly concerned. However, director Marc Webb has come to the defence of the film.
"The main villain is Electro. Every other villain emerges around that. We were careful to make sure the stories entertained. You had to make sure to create obstacles that were difficult to overcome. We wanted to make the physical and emotional obstacles difficult. Rhino is in it for four minutes so it’s a legitimate comparison, but when you see the movie, I’m confident."
What do you make of this statement, and do you feel reassured about the amount of villains in the sequel? Let us know your thoughts below, or head on »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is quickly approaching and, with that, Sony is keeping a steady stream of materials for fans of good ol’ webhead to gawk at until the film is released. For starters, here’s a featurette called “Becoming Peter Parker” that gives us a behind the scenes look at the man under Spider-Man’s mask- Andrew Garfield.
In it, we get a glimpse at Garfield’s dedication to the role, how he views the character, and what he brings to the production. The actor has taken a very hands on approach to the portraying the dual role of Peter Parker and Spider-Man, and we see how- even within the suit- his performance shines through.
I also couldn’t help but notice, and appreciate, the way this Spider-Man seemingly hasn’t forgotten about how powerful a child’s sense of wonder is. It doesn’t discount what this iconic character means to kids, »

"He's just a gem. He takes it all so seriously." — Sally Field
Sony has released a new featurette for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that focuses on title star Andrew Garfield and his journey to becoming the man behind the mask, Peter Parker. The featurette contains commentary from director Marc Webb, co-star Jamie Foxx and Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee, among others, and includes behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the movie. It also includes footage from Garfield's San Diego Comic-Con appearances, including his surprise 2011 appearance in which he came out of the crowd to ask the panel a question in disguise in a store-bought costume and won over fandom with his chest-thumping, teary-eyed speech about the importance of Spider-Man. The movie opens May 2nd.

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. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be directed by Marc Webb »
After their segment got cut from the 86th Academy Awards ceremony, Andrew Garfield and the "Batkid" Miles Scott spent the day together at Disneyland, and despite the snub they had a "great time."
"We were happy that Andrew, on his own time, drove to Anaheim on Monday to spend time with Miles and his family," Make-a-Wish spokesperson Josh deBerge tells E! News. "We understand they had a great time."
After rumors started flying that Garfield canceled their skit that was planned to run during the Oscars, both the academy and his rep released a statement revealing that it wasn't Garfield's decision to pull the segment.
"In full collaboration with the academy and the show writer, Andrew prepared a segment for the Oscars to honor Miles Scott as the true hero that he is. At some point overnight on Saturday/Sunday morning, it was decided by those running the show that »
However, Webb has revealed that Paul Giamatti's Rhino will only be in the movie for four minutes.
"It's about writing," said Webb at South by Southwest (via The Playlist). "We're aware of those movies and the complaints people had.
"The main villain is Electro. Every other villain emerges around that. We were careful to make sure the stories entertained. You had to make sure to create obstacles that were difficult to overcome. We wanted to make the physical and emotional obstacles difficult.

A major spoiler regarding the death of a leading character in forthcoming superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 appears to have been let slip via a cereal advert.
The spoiler, which readers can avoid by turning away now, was revealed in a commercial spot for Kellogg's' The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Web-Slinging Game. It is one of three videos released into the internet over the weekend, all of which are narrated by Marvel comics icon Stan Lee.
The offending video clearly states that Chris Cooper's Norman Osborn, a character who in the comics and previous big screen versions has doubled as villain The Green Goblin, has died as the film's events unfold. His son Harry Osborn, played by Dane DeHaan, is seen inheriting Oscorp Industries, the multimillion-dollar corporation founded by Norman. »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is shaping up to be one of this summer's biggest movies, although some fans have been worried that there are too many villains, a problem that plagued Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3. With Electro (Jamie Foxx), Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Green Goblin/Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) appearing in the May 2 sequel, director Marc Webb revealed in a Q&A session at the South by Southwest Film Festival that he is well aware with the fan criticism regarding multiple villains.
"We're obviously familiar with the complaints people had. We're very careful to make sure the stories intertwine. For Peter Parker, it's very important that you create obstacles that are difficult to overcome."

There's potentially a minor spoiler for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in this story, if you don't happen to know who the villains in the movie are.
We're just over a month away from the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which sees Andrew Garfield reprising the role of the world's most famous webslinger. Inevitably, there's been quite a lot of chatter about the movie as its unveiling gets closer and closer. And there's been concern raised over just how many villains appear to be populating the movie.
After all, there's Jamie Foxx playing Electro, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn, Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn (and alter ego), and further hints at Doctor Octopus and Vulture. How do you fit that lot in?
The marketing campaign for the upcoming Amazing Spider-man 2 has really accelerated over the past couple of months with countless trailers, stills and posters being released on a (practically) daily basis. So far all of the promotional material seen for the film looks incredible and certainly seems to have improved on the criticisms of the original (cough cough…gold eyed costume). If all of that was not enough to get you excited about Andrew Garfield’s second outing as the worlds most famous wall-crawler, then Marvel and Sony Pictures Entertainment have yet another poster for you.
While posters so far for The Amazing Spider-man 2 have focussed on the multiple antagonists Peter Parker will be facing, this brand new one sheet simply shows off the title characters amazing abilities (see what I did there?). You can see the beautiful new poster below:

It’s pretty much become commonplace for comic book movies or blockbuster tent-poles to embark on some sort of viral marketing campaign involving multiple trailers, TV spots and featurettes. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is simply following in its successful predecessor’s footsteps.
A few of these featurettes have already given us a preview look at the sequel by showing us some of the sweet flying sequences or a quick glimpse at the Osborne family. Another early video gave us a peak into the romance between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). We’ve also seen some images that could be major spoilers for the film’s plot. But this latest featurette from Sony Pictures offers a bit of a different take than the usual fare.
Titled “Becoming Peter Parker,” the video revisits actor Andrew Garfield’s journey to becoming the ...
