We've always known that Spider-Man's most important conflict 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 his greatest battle is about to begin. It's great to be Spider-Man. For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen. 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, Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp. Written by

The humorously hateful news boss J. Jonah Jameson, one of the most important characters in Spider-man's mythos, was never mentioned in The Amazing Spider-Man (2012). In this sequel he is spoken of frequently but never appears. Reportedly the producers are holding off on depicting this character until they find an actor whom they believe will not generate negative comparisons to J.K. Simmons. The latter's iconic portrayal of Jameson opposite the Tobey Maguire version of Spider-man is seen as very hard to top. Stan Lee, the writer who came up with the idea for these characters and makes cameo appearances in all the films, has often said he would volunteer to play Jameson if he (Lee) were 30 or 40 years younger.

Sometimes I wonder if Hollywood think that we are stupid spectators. I am concerned that SONY Pictures is planning two more after this sequel.
With so much talent out there, why do they have to pick such an amateur bunch of bad actors? So many good stories out there to tell, and SONY picks this stupid script to waste money in the name of collecting revenue. The whole movie is too violent for not reason, and the plot is so silly that my 11 year old daughter asked me to leave in the middle of the movie. The whole cast is boring and Jamie J. Fox is so stupid that sometimes you wonder ... We couldn't finish the movie, we left after the first 30 minutes. Please don't waste your time and money on this movie, instead bring your children to watch "Bears" from Disney, or any other instructive and educative movie.
We need to start sending the right message to Hollywood, we are not consuming movies for the sake of consuming movies, we go to the movies to learn and enjoy a good story and have a good time. SONY should learn from good movies like "Captain America".
