THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2’s Spidey and Electro Grace the Cover of This Week’s Entertainment Weekly; Plus New Image

     July 10, 2013


A week from now, Comic-Con 2013 kicks off in earnest, thus beginning five days of non-stop craziness and first looks at some of the most exciting films, TV shows, comics, etc. heading our way in the near future.  Entertainment Weekly is getting a jump on this year’s Con, as the cover of this week’s issue gives us our first official look at Andrew Garfield’s Spidey and Jamie Foxx’s Electro squaring off in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  The sequel is looking like it will have a number of villains—Paul Giamatti as Rhino is confirmed, and we’ve got Dane DeHaan playing Harry Osborn, though it’s unclear if he’ll go bad this time around—but the film’s principal baddie is Foxx’s Electro.  The character appears to undergo a drastic change in appearance in the film, and director Marc Webb’s take on the character is also rather different from the comics iteration.  I’m sure we’ll learn more during the film’s Hall H panel next Friday, so check back here for our full recap of the event.

Hit the jump to take a look at the EW cover and a new image from the film featuring Garfield and DeHaan.  Comic-Con 2013 runs from July 17th – 21st, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.
