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.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has instant open-world character switching
Peter and Miles perched next to each other in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

Insomniac Games has finally confirmed whether or not players will be able to switch between the two playable versions of Spider-Man while exploring the open world of Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

Ever since it was confirmed that Peter Parker and Miles Morales would both be playable in Marvel's Spider-Man 2, the question of whether or not players would be able to switch between them at any time in the open world arose. Although Marvel's Spider-Man 2's gameplay debut at the PlayStation Showcase didn't confirm whether or not that was the case, Creative Director Bryan Intihar revealed the answer in an interview with Eurogamer: yes, you can. 
"We have content designed around Peter, we have content designed around Miles, and we have content where you can play either. You'll be able to -- in the open world -- freely switch between them with a simple button press," Intihar confirmed. Insomniac Games also confirmed to Eurogamer that Peter and Miles will each have their own skill tree, although they will also share a third. For the most part, it looks like players will have a lot of freedom about how and with whom they want to tackle any sort of open-world objectives or sidequests.
Things will get a little more restrictive during more linear story missions, like the one we saw during the PlayStation Showcase, though. "When you're playing the main story, we control when you switch between Pete and Miles ... it's done in service to the story when we're making those switches, for sure," Intihar told Eurogamer. "So, as you saw on that gameplay reveal, which is a segment of the main story, we are predetermining those based on what we want to do for how the story plays out."
Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will be released exclusively for PlayStation 5 sometime this fall.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 gets wild gameplay trailer, but no release date
Kraven the Hunter appears in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

Insomniac Games showed off a new gameplay trailer for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 during Sony's May 2023 PlayStation Showcase. The action-packed clip showed off its villain, the iconic Kraven the Hunter, but it didn't give the game a release date. It's still only scheduled for fall 2023.

The new trailer gave us our closest glimpse at Sony's upcoming release we've seen yet. It begins with a very cinematic clip showing off classic Spider-Man villain Kraven the Hunter. From there, we flash-forward a bit to New York City, where we see Peter Parker and Miles Morales working together to save the city. Parker has a fancy new black suit with a lot of wild powers. In the trailer, we see multiple black spider arms coming out of it and slamming enemies.
