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 hits theaters on May 2, 2014.
Directed by: Marc Webb from a screenplay written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Jeff Pinkner.
Starring: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field.
The new trailer hit online today and will play in front of the new "Hobbit" film next week. Much excitement surrounds this film, mostly in part of it having a lot to prove after largely mixed reviews of part one. A recent triptych poster revealed an unexpected Green Goblin stand-off and recent casting lists now foreshadow the return of Peter's parents (most likely in flashbacks).
Below are recent images from the movie, showing Spidey in action vs. Electro and pre-costume Rhino (he's driving that truck).

Personally, I'm most impressed with the Spidey costume re-design, very "ultimate" and sleek. The white eyes make a huge difference and if they make Peter a little less of a jerk in this one, the movie might give this rebooted franchise the legs it needs to keep going.
