Marvel's New York-based web-slinger faces a host of deadly enemies in The Amazing Spider-Man 2


Andrew Garfield is back in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as high school student turned superhero Peter Parker, accompanied once again by Emma Stone as love interest Gwen Stacey.

Did 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man leave you scratching your head as to what happened to Peter’s parents? Well screenwriter Alex Kurtzman says that answers are coming.

“The villains emerge from a lot of unanswered questions at the end of that movie,” Kurtzman explains. “And none of them are random at all – they are all tied together by a theme, an idea, and I think they come from our curiosity about what was going on in the life of Peter Parker and his parents.”

Baddie brigade Live wire Electro (Jamie Foxx) is joined by The Rhino (Paul Giamatti), plus father-son team Harry and Norman Osborn (Dane DeHaan and Chris Cooper). The film is also rumoured to tease the origins of The Sinister Six, a group comprised of Spidey’s greatest foes…

When it comes to Electro himself, director Marc Webb is promising great things. “What makes him interesting is the really ironic evolution of the character,” he says. “He starts off as Spider-Man’s biggest fan and ends up being Spider-Man’s biggest foe.”

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is released on 18 April.
