‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ swings into Times Square on New Year’s Eve

Marvel Studios ushered in the new year with a sneak peak at The Amazing Spider-Man 2, that premiered on the Times Square video screens during the December 31 countdown festivities. Spidey co-creator Stan Lee introduces the clip montage, which highlights the webslinger’s showdown in New York City’s Times Square with Electro (Jamie Foxx). There’s also a very brief glimpse at the power armor that many believe belongs to Paul Giamatti’s Rhino, suggesting there’s much more going on with this Times Square tussle than we’re seeing in this flash of clips.

Andrew Garfield’s starring performance in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man helped to resuscitate Hollywood’s take on the superhero after the overstuffed emo disaster that was Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3. This new clip treats us to a few moments of full-on Garfield-as-Spidey wisecracking, and it seems he’s still got it. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on May 2, 2014.
