"Amazing Spider-Man 2" Reveals Its Official Synopsis

Sequel is set to hit theaters on May 2, 2014

Production on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is underway in New York, where the entirety of the movie is being filmed, and we're now getting a better idea of what will be going down in Peter Parker's world once it makes its debut next year.


We already knew Jamie Foxx was signed on to play Electro, and while recent rumors have had Paul Giamatti stepping into the picture as Rhino, the synopsis below sums up everything else nicely.


In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.


So no mention of Giamatti as Rhino, but he is confirmed to be in the film in some capacity. Marc Webb returns to direct the sequel, which is set to hit theaters in 3D on May 2, 2014.
