Story

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 his greatest battle is about to begin.

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.

Did You Know?

This is the first "Spider-Man" film to be filmed entirely in New York, and the largest film production ever in New York City.

Two display cases in Oscorp feature a set of metal wings, and an exoskeleton holding four arms. These are homages to Spider-Man's antagonists the Vulture (Adrian Toomes) and Doctor Octopus (Otto Octavius).

The film's portrayal of the Rhino combines aspects from the comics of the Rhino from the mainstream universe (the Rhino's real name Aleksei Sytsevich) and Ultimate universe (where instead of gaining superpowers or wearing a normal suit, he pilots a Rhino-themed exo suit similar to Iron Man).

As was done with Captain America in his second on-screen appearance for the movie "The Avengers", Spiderman's costume for this film is tailored to resemble his original costume from the comic books, when the character was first introduced. The costume for this film includes the original color patterns for Spidey's hands and feet and the Large White eyepieces (which have not been done in any major motion picture about Spiderman. Each time, the costume eyes were thin, clear colored frames.) The only differences from the costume for this film and the very first Spider-man costume, are the Spider insignia on his back and the lack of Web "wings" beneath his arms.
