Cast overview, first billed only:


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 Sony Pictures Entertainment

Did You Know?


On a press tour, Andrew Garfield opened up to his views on the cancelled and controversy of this series. When asked how he felt no longer being Spider-Man he replied: 'Well, nothing, because I was never Spider-Man. Because Spider-Man's a fictional character. He's not real. You know what's funny, to give you the vulnerable answer, I thought I was going to be Spider-Man, you know? I went into it going...ego shit came in. It's like, "Okay, here it is. I'm fucking Spider-Man. I fucking made it." All that shit. I didn't actually make it. I was never Spider-Man. I was the actor that I am. The person that I am. Struggling with trying to match up with something that I'd elevated so high in my mind. Elevated beyond what I could attain, what I could achieve. The great thing is, that's what Peter Parker was doing as well. Peter Parker created this symbol that he couldn't live up to. It was never enough. He never felt enough, and I never felt enough. And I wanted to...not to say that I needed to rescue those films, but I couldn't make them as deep and soulful as I could ever dream. And I'm never gonna be able to do that, with any film. It was especially difficult in that situation because...well, just because. And it was especially important because that character has always meant so much to me...'He also revealed that he consistently pushed on Sony to crossover Spider-Man with the MCU. See more »


Several times in the movie, when Peter is hallucinating the vision of Captain Stacy right before him, while wearing his Spider-Man mask, the reflection of Captain Stacy is visible in the eyes of the mask. Since Captain Stacy is obviously not there, it wouldn't make sense for him to be visible in the Spider-Man mask lenses. See more »

Amazing Spider-man 2 is Awesome!
22 August 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I was a guy who like the first film and i was thinking the same with this one, and this one is far better than the first one. It's actually come out a pretty good movie. Please don't listen the critics otherwise you will miss why Spider-man is Amazing. If you are going into this expecting a Dark Knight or an Avengers or any other movie, this isn't for you. Spider-Man is a fun character and this movie is like a comic book come to life. Certainly I am not saying that this movie is 100% perfect. There are some things about this movie which can be questioned but after watching i can say i really want to believe in superheroes. A great mix of action, humor, love and pure fun. From the story about Peter's father, over to aunt May and the love to Stacy - everything fitted so well together. End is little sad I was heart broken It killed me inside. If you're a fan of any characters in spider man, I suggest you prepare yourself mentally before watching this film, because you really should watch this film.
