Sony Pictures released the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 today, and it's chalk-full of villains.
The rebooted Spidey franchise featuring Andrew Garfield as the web slinger and Emma Stone as Mary Jane shows us all sorts of fun from:
-- Jamie Foxx as Electro, looking like a translucent member of the Blue Man Group (but cool still)
-- Paul Giamatti as The Rhino. Well we only get a small taste of his Rhinocerosness (yes I just made that word up)
-- Dane DeHann as Harry Osborn and papa Norman played by Chris Cooper as the megalomaniacal heads of Oscorp, and yes there's some Dragonball Z-looking Goblin flying around too.
There's more scum and villainy here than a Tatooine spaceport.
Let's just hope that by stuffing the box full of villains, the movie franchise doens't befall the fate of films like, oh say "Batman & Robin," which also had three villains -- Dr. Fries, Poison Ivy and Bane. Chances are, though, we won't see any anatomically correct body armor this go around.
Of course Spider-Man 3 with Tobey Maguire also had three villains, so I think the Spidey fans will follow along.
