Sony Pictures is really gearing up the promotion for Amazing Spider-Man 2. Spider-Man will be making an appearance on New Year's Eve in New York City''s Times Square, and Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be featured as one of the 25 biggest films of 2014 in this week's Empire Magazine. In order to promote the special 2014 preview issue, Empire has released two brand new images of Elector from Amazing Spider-Man 2. The new issue of Empire Magazine will arrive on newsstands on Tuesday, December 31, 2013. Synopsis: We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It's great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on May 2, 2014.
