The International trailer (below) for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 features some bits not found in the trailer released last week, including a funnier side of Spider-Man.

It’s not uncommon for a studio to release different trailers for different audiences. This trailer, featuring Dutch subtitles, shows a slightly different side to Spider-Man than the trailer we recently scoured for hints. Mostly the difference is in the tone.

From the music to the dialogue, the most notable difference between the two trailers is that Peter Parker/Spider-Man is funnier and seems to enjoy being Spider-Man more. It starts with Spidey crowing that he loves being Spider-Man, includes a gag with Aunt May, and then goes on to show New York City expressing its love for Spidey, including a cute little kid in a Spidey costume. It also shows Peter and Gwen in an adorable fight.

Beyond that though, there is one important piece of dialogue from Chris Cooper, who plays Norman Osborn, claiming that “we” have plans for Peter Parker. There is also more of a hint that Electro is working with others, as he tells someone “let’s go catch a spider.” No real surprise there, but new dialogue nonetheless.

The rest of the trailer shows new sides of the same scenes as before. We saw Electro and Spidey fighting in Times Square, but the new clip offers a few different glimpses of that brawl, including a new nickname Spidey gives Electro.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on May 2, 2014. It was also recently confirmed that the series will spin off a handful of other movies, possibly beginning with Venom and then The Sinister Six.

How to run the bases at Big Apple Ballers Stadium in Spider-Man 2
Peter and Miles leap in the air in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is bigger, bolder, and better in nearly every way compared to its two predecessors, offering new and expansive sections of New York City to explore during your quest for 100% completion. But if you're also looking to earn every trophy the game has to offer to earn the coveted Platinum, you've probably noticed a bronze trophy called "Home Run!" that asks you to run the bases at Big Apple Ballers Stadium. You don't have to hit a homer to score this trophy, but you do need to take a lap around the bases, so we'll tell you where to find Big Apple Ballers Stadium below so you can start living out your baseball legend dreams.
Where to find Big Apple Ballers Stadium
Big Apple Ballers Stadium is located in Downtown Brooklyn, which can be found at the very bottom of the southeast portion of the map. While it's a little difficult to make out the stadium on the map, you'll definitely be able to recognize it in-game as you swing closer, as it's quite a large stadium located not too far from the amusement park you visit as part of the story.

Of course, finding the stadium is only part of the equation for getting the Home Run! trophy. Once you reach the stadium, make your way to home plate and then run the bases in a counter-clockwise fashion (home, first, second, third, home) as if you'd just hit a home run.

How to change suits in Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man soars through the air in a biomechanical suit in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

Everyone knows the iconic Spider-Man suit. The red-and-blue spandex uniform has been iterated on and altered hundreds of times over the course of decades, leading to some similar and some very different designs. Spider-Man 2 introduces Venom and the symbiote suit to the mix as a plot point, but there are almost 70 total suits from various comics, shows, and movies to unlock and wear between Peter pParker and Miles Morales. Unlocking them is one thing, but changing between them, and their new styles, is another. With this guide, you will be able to change your spider style as fast as our heroes when duty calls.
How to change suits

Once you've snagged your first additional suit and used some Tokens to unlock it, changing between them is a breeze. Simply open your menu, go to the Suits tab, and highlight the one you want to wear. If you want to switch between Peter and Miles, simply hit L2 or R2 to cycle between the Spider-Men since each has their own unique set of suit options. Press X on the suit you want to wear and -- bam! -- your Spider-Man is now decked out in a new style. However, that's not all. Many suits have additional styles you can unlock by spending some Tech Parts. These give you three additional color options for that specific suit to further customize your look.

Spider-Man 2 Just Let Go trophy guide: Where to find the science trophy

There is no shortage of collectibles to gather and activities to do in Spider-Man 2. From photo-ops to Prowler Stashes, the map is filled with icons showing you where to go to find just about anything you need. One thing that isn't marked on your map, however, is a very special collectible for Miles Morales. This isn't required for any specific quest, and won't give you any XP, but it does reward you with the Just Let Go trophy that is necessary if you want to get the coveted Platinum trophy. With no clues as to where to find this tiny science trophy on the massive New York map, you could spend hours swinging around looking. Instead, we'll show you exactly where to look so you can check this trophy off your list.
How to get the Just Let Go trophy

The science trophy we're looking for is in the southern part of the Financial District on a church. The exact location can be seen above, but the church itself is impossible to miss once you're in the area. When you reach the church, climb up onto the roof behind the main steeple and look up at the small balcony running around it. If you're close enough, you will see the small white circle indicating that there's something you can interact with there.
