  • Episode 10: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 | Death & Destiny: Sinister Setbacks |

    03/12/2021 Duración: 01h03min

    Tragedy was always embedded into Peters DNA even after the Spider bite. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 leaned into this with its narrative but behind the scenes drama would be its ultimate downfall. In order to keep up with a growing landscape, Sony pushed its second film to set up a whole Spider-Man cinematic universe to rival the MCU. Juggling Electro, Rhino, The Death of Gwen Stacy and setting up the sinister six. What we got was a movie that was destined for greatness which can be seen in snapshots but not the final cut.

With Andrew Garfield taking the mantle we got a nuanced but different universe to swing through with The Amazing Spider-Man. One which had all the potential greatness of the previous films, with the lingering corporate trappings that destroyed it still weaving a web of its own.
