Now that production on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has begun, the studio has also sent out a press release that contains the first full synopsis for the upcoming sequel. Several former semi-confirmed rumors have been officially confirmed via the synopsis, such as Paul Giamatti and Dane DeHaan’s respective involvement. Colm Feore has also been announced as part of the cast, albeit in an undisclosed role:
“In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy,” begins the official blurb. “Between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough.
“Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.”
