Plot: When New York is put under siege by Oscorp, it is up to Spider-Man to save the city he swore to protect as well as his loved ones.

In this film was too many Plots lines in this film.

I do not really like it one.

Good Bits: The Spider-Man costume looks comic-book accurate, Electro looks so like the Ultimate Marvel version. The acting of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man is amazing & Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy was all right.

Bad Bits: In this was too many Plots lines & going to sense to sense, Too many Jokes. The Death of Gwen Stacy was there to please fans, Too many villains and side Characters just like Spider-man 3: Max Dillon / Electro, Harry Osborn / Green Goblin, Donald Menken, Aleksei Sytsevich / Rhino, Felicia Hardy, Peter’s father & Mother, Alistair Smythe & the “Man in the Shadows” AKA The Gentleman.

Facts:                                                                                                                                                       1. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was originally plan to begin a shared fictional universe, which would have continued with two sequels and several spin-off films: Amazing Spider-Man 3 with a release date of June 10, 2016 & Amazing Spider-Man 4 for May 4, 2018. Additionally, the series was to include spin-off films featuring the Sinister Six and Venom, with Drew Goddard writing and directing Sinister Six and Kurtzman directing a Venom script co-written by himself, Orci, and Ed Solomon. Sinister Six had been planned for a November 11, 2016 release. Sony revealed plans for a spin-off based on Spider-Man 2099 and a the female-led spin-off.  But all of some plans now all cancelled after the announcement in February 2015 of a new franchise with Marvel Studios, the sequels to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 were cancelled.

  1. The Sony Hack: In December 2014, following the hacking of Sony Pictures’ computers, Sony and Marvel were revealed to have had discussions about allowing Spider-Man to appear in the 2016 Marvel Cinematic Universe film Captain America: Civil War while having control of the film rights remaining with Sony. However, talks between the studios then broke down. Instead, Sony had considered having Sam Raimi return to direct a new trilogy.

However, on February 9, 2015, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios announced that Spider-Man would appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the character appearing in a Marvel Cinematic Universe film and Sony releasing a Spider-Man film co-produced by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal. Sony Pictures will continue to own, finance, distribute, and exercise final creative control over the Spider-Man films.

  1. No mid-credit scene: A mid-credit teaser scene from X-Men: Days of Future Past was added to the film after its London premiere, due to an existing deal between Webb and 20th Century Fox, in which Fox allowed Webb to direct the film if Sony would promote the X-Men film for free. The scene, set during the Vietnam War, shows Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), a rogue mutant, trying to infiltrate a military camp led by William Stryker (Josh Helman) in an attempt to recruit fellow mutants Havok (Lucas Till) and Toad (Evan Jonigkeit). The scene’s inclusion sparked confusion among some viewers in the United Kingdom, who thought it meant an X-Men–Spider-Man crossover film was being planned, based on how Marvel Studios and Disney use codas within the Marvel Cinematic Universe to promote future films.
  2. Mary Jane Watson: By October 10, 2012, Shailene Woodley was in talks for the role of Mary Jane Watson. By March 14, 2013, Woodley had concluded filming her small role. Garfield recalled, “I think all of [those scenes] were in our backyards. We had two or three scenes with me talking over the fence, and there was one with us riding together on a motorcycle that we never got to shoot.” By mid-June, Mary Jane was cut from the film, with director Webb explaining it as “a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship.
  3. Deleted scenes got cut for Blu-ray release: All of the Deleted scenes of the story got cut from the film included a alternate ending where Peter Parker’s father meets Peter at Gwen’s resting place.

He’s the Movie’s Characters and they are:                                                                           Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker / Spider-Man: An orphaned teenage boy who received spider-powers after being bitten by a genetically altered spider.

Emma Stone as Gwendolyn “Gwen” Stacy: A high school student and Peter’s love interest.

Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon / Electro: An electrical engineer who works for Oscorp Industries and later transforms into a powerful, electronical creature following an accident, then taking the alias of “Electro”.

Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn / Green Goblin: Peter’s longtime friend for 10 years and son of Norman Osborn.

Colm Feore as Donald Menken: Oscorp’s Vice President and Head of the Board.

Felicity Jones as Felicia Hardy: Norman’s assistant at Oscorp, and later Harry’s assistant.

Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich / Rhino: a Russian hired killer for the Russian Mafia, who allies with Harry and receives a massive, well-armored, robotic, rhino-like suit from him, deciding to call himself “the Rhino”.

Sally Field as Aunt May: Peter’s aunt.

Campbell Scott as Richard Parker: Peter’s father.

Embeth Davidtz as Mary Parker: Peter’s mother.

Marton Csokas as Dr. Kafka: The head of Ravencroft Institute.

I do recommend this but only on Blu-Ray.

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars – Rotten Tomatoes/Flixster
