If you didn’t watch the Super Bowl last night, you probably did yourself a pretty big favor because the main attraction, which was supposed to be a football game, was pretty awful. For those of us who viewed Denver completely implode and pretty much give Seattle a freebie Super Bowl Championship, we were saved by the commercials. Specifically, for me, I was waiting for the new Super Bowl movie trailers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. If you read my last post about the movie, and are up to speed on the symbolism of what Gwen Stacy is wearing and who might show up in Spider-Man 3 and 4, **cough cough** MARY JANE **cough cough**, please proceed. If not, do yourself a favor and click anywhere in my last sentence.
Moving right along now… the next two videos are part 1 and 2 of the Super Bowl teaser trailers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The best part about what you’re about to see is these aren’t even close to the best part of what you’re about to see. Wrap your mind around that.
Super Bowl Ad Part 1:
Super Bowl Ad Part 2:
So pretty awesome, right? Right. But not even close to being as awesome as what you’re about to see. The Super Bowl ads were just out there to get you teed up. A quick run-down before you watch. Here are the facts. Electro is the main villain played by Jamie Foxx, and you’re about to see how he was transformed from his original self, Max Dillion. Not yet officially confirmed, but easily surmised from his presence in the trailers, Dane DeHaan is definitely playing Harry Osborn, who apparently takes on the role of the villain, the Green Goblin. The Rhino is also present and played by Paul Giamatti aka Aleksei Mikhailovich Sytsevich, the guy inside the Rhino-mech-suit. Very little is known as to what the Rhino’s story is in this movie, but I’m more than intrigued to find out. Try this video on for size and when it’s over, tell me you don’t think this is going to be an awesome movie. I dare you. That’s a legitimate dare.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – Enemies Unite Sizzle:
There you have it. If that trailer doesn’t make you believe this new Spider-Man movie will be off the charts, I think it’s safe to assume you’re mentally ill and probably need serious medical help. I did give you a serious dare, though. If you feel like volunteering your severe mental illness to the world, put it down in the comments section. I’ll gladly do epic super-hero battle with you down there.
