Well, good to see some things don’t change. Unfortunately, one of those things is that “AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2” looks awful. Enthusiastically awful, yes, but awful all the same. This new “sizzle reel” trailer basically gives us Electro in a nutshell: He’s Jim Carrey’s Riddler from “BATMAN FOREVER,” (overlooked science dweeb with a stalker-crush on the hero) and he gets his powers from being bitten by radioactive electric eels.
Poor Emma Stone is stuck right in the middle of this mess, putting on a brave face while she waits for a chance to head back to her trailer and shove more pins into that voodoo doll of Jennifer Lawrence.
