A big, fat spoiler warning for all of you readers before you hit play on this new TV spot for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Without getting into much detail, the 30-second spot features a surprisingly direct nod to what may be a major plot point in the upcoming Sony Pictures release. Seriously. It won’t be as much of a surprise if you’ve been keeping up with casting and are familiar with the comics – and hey, maybe this is just an epic work of misdirection! – but be warned.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives in theaters on May 2 in what most view as a formal kickoff to the summer blockbuster season. Andrew Garfield returns as the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler, and he’ll be facing off in this outing against the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan), the Rhino (Paul Giamatti), and Electro (Jamie Foxx).
