It’s time to mark your calendars, ladies and gentlemen. It was announced today via The Amazing Spider-Man Facebook page that the official trailer for the upcoming film The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be unleashed upon the world on December 5th.
You can also catch a sneak peek of the trailer by tuning into Good Morning America the morning of the 5th.
It would seem that Sony likes sandwiching Spider-Man moves right in the middle of other upcoming blockbusters. According to schedule The Amazing Spider-Man 2 nudged in right between Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier which is scheduled to release on April 4, 2014 and X-Men: Days of Future Past which is scheduled to drop on May 23, 2014.
The same situation occurred upon the release of the first Amazing Spider-Man feature which was released on July 3, 2012, right in between Marvel’s The Avengers, which released on May 4, 2012 and DC’s The Dark Knight Rises which dropped on July 20, 2012.
In the sequel, both Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone return to their roles as Spider-Man a.k.a. Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy respectively.
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man squares off against the Rhino, played by Paul Giamatti and the powerful Electro, played by Jamie Foxx, while struggling to keep his promise to leave Gwen Stacey out of his dangerous life.
The trailer to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is scheduled to be released on December 5, 2013.
