Just when you thought we had been shown everything we could possibly see from TheÂ Amazing Spider-Man 2 short of the entire movie, along comes a new featuretteÂ focused on Oscorp.
Oscorp, of course, is the epitome of the "evil corporation," and if it hasn't becomeÂ clear before, it's hammered home in this MTV clip that Norman Osborn's company isÂ the nexus of everything in Spider-Man's (Andrew Garfield) world -- at least in this variation on theÂ mythology -- including his missing parents, the villains he faces and his own history.
The mix of footage, photos and brief interviews contains some new looks at Rhino (Paul Giamatti),Â Electro (Jamie Foxx) and the inner workings of Oscorp itself, with Foxx helpfully laying outÂ Electro's origin story and director Marc Webb revealing that everything that hasÂ emanated from the company is a result of Norman's search for a cure for the disease thatÂ is killing him.
Webb hints at further details about that disease, Norman (Chris Cooper) and his son Harry (Dane DeHaan) and adds that events in The AmazingÂ Spider-Man 2 will reverberate in later films -- a good thing, I suppose, since SonyÂ Pictures has announced that it's making 17 more movies in this universe (okay, at least four)Â and needs to fill all that running time with something (hey, wildÂ guess -- the Vulture and Doc Ock are on the way).
Watch the clip below and tell us: Are the filmmakers revealing too much at this pointÂ about The Amazing Spider-Man 2?Â
