Amazing Spider-Man 2 Superbowl Trailers and Analysis!

Is there going to be a eugenics war in Amazing Spider-Man 2? If this latest trailer is any indication, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) is learning that Oscorp Industries has followed him for some time now. They are interested in cross-breeding experiments. Through bio-morphism and the study of regeneration, Dr. Curt Connors became the Lizard and thinks the world can be a better place if everyone in New York City is changed. Peter had to deal with that threat in the first movie and save the day.

With hype for the second movie now in full swing, this sequel will show what the power of substance abuse can do to other people. Apparently the serum that Connors “perfected” is still being studied.

This announcement is no surprise when considering how well this reboot has done financially. As the pressure mounts to deliver a good product, with news of certain actors playing key villains, namely Electro and Rhino, maybe this film series is building up to a showdown with Spider-Man versus the Sinister Six. The founding members of this nefarious team consists of Sandman, Vulture, Electro, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. The question is, just how much will this team differ from its comic book counterpart?
