The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Plot Synopsis. The official plot synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) has been released for the Mark Webb directed film. Curiously enough, the plot synopsis emotions Electro (Jamie Foxx) but makes no mention of Rhino (Paul Giamatti), discussed here: The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Paul Giamatti is Rhino, Felicity Jones cast. Perhaps his inclusion was supposed to be a surprise, even though that surprise would have ruined by the time the first set photos or the second trailer aired.
The official plot synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man 2:
Columbia Pictures announced today that filming has begun on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in New York. The film is the first in the history of the franchise that will be filmed entirely in New York City and New York State.
The sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit The Amazing Spider-Man, the film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field.
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.
The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers.
The film’s key behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Dan Mindel, production designer Mark Friedberg, editors Pietro Scalia and Elliot Graham, and costume designer Deborah L. Scott.
Questions raised by this synopsis:
The Felicity Jones omission could just mean her part is small, or that it didn’t work out. Sheen not being listed doesn’t mean he won’t be in, but it suggests flashback cameo. Also, how can Harry Osborn return if we didn’t hear about him in the first film?
