When a cure is found to treat mutations, lines are drawn amongst the X-Men, led by Professor Charles Xavier, and the Brotherhood, a band of powerful mutants organized under Xavier's former ally, Magneto.
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

When Harry accesses his father's archive you can see the file names Ravencroft, Dr.Connors, Dr.Morbius, and Venom Storage 7U. Ravencroft is the asylum seen later in this film, Dr. Curt Connors is the Lizard from The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), Dr. Michael Morbius is a Spider-Man villain with vampire-like attributes, and Venom is Spider-man's demented lookalike whose story was filmed in Spider-Man 3 (2007). All these villains were intended to join the "Sinister Six" organization in the ultimately-cancelled third installment of this reboot. See more »

An Amazing Hero with an Amazing and Powerful Romance
I watched a lot of superhero movies and this one is in my top 3 along with The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. I see all the bad reviews saying bad things about spidey, about Andrew Garfield and comparing this to Twillight. I really do not get those people. Let me tell you why.
Firstly because Andrew Garfield fits perfectly for the role of Peter Parker and also does Emma Stone for Gwen Stacy. A real, honest love between these two characters. It is so powerful that I felt it when they look at each other, talk to each other and in every other romantic scene. I know you expect a great superhero movie with a lot of action, with a good villain but this movie is something more than just a superhero movie. This is a really great romance that in the end it almost made me cry.
Another thing about this movie is that I really like the villain and Jamie Foxx was really good at being Electro. Not much action and battles between spiderman and Electro but that is what makes this superhero movie so special.
And the last thing may contain a little spoiler(do not read it if you want to watch the movie for the 1st time). It has an really amazing twist at the very end when Gwen dies and like I said it almost made me cry. So I can not wait for the 3rd movie of this trilogy.
