The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) First Trailer!

Off the bat the details of the effects in the trailer are spectacular and the visual effects themselves in general are amazing. Yet my complaint from the first film of there being this unknown build up for a mystery in the Parker family and now it's continuation coming with the second film still leaves unimpressed.

Besides the Parker mystery, the premise of Obscorp attempting to manipulate human DNA to create super heroes. Is an obvious choice for a story-line to have immense action scenery.

On a more serious note the trailer doesn't show exactly where the film is going to take Peter. Because the story threads of their being a secret in the family, MJ or Gwen Stacy being caught in danger and Peter possibly being again a whiny little teenager. We've all seen in the previous films. What I can only ask for is for them to capture Peter at his finest as the mature youngster, with a great sense of humor, heart and courage. The Peter Parker we all know of and love from the comics.
