Official Synopsis tl;dr "the blonde is going to die"

Official Synopsis tl;dr “the blonde is going to die”

Columbia Pictures has released the official plot synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 which just went into production. Here is the synopsis courtesy of CinemaBlend.

In The Amazing Spider-Man2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – 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.

UPDATE: A more detailed synopsis is available via ComicBookMovie.

As CinemaBlend points out in their article, Harry Osborn, aka the second Green Goblin, appears in this film as Peter’s ‘old friend’ after having not been in the first movie. This isn’t too much of a stretch, people can be friends and due to school drift away after a year or so. It’s doubtful that Harry will be going Green in this film, though there is a good possibility that the set up for his villainy could take place in ASM2.

The other interesting part is the lack of mentioning of Paul Giamatti who could play The Rhino nor of Felicity Jones who could also be in the film as reported by The Hollywood Reporter (and now confirmed in the ComicBookMovie article). So either this report is wrong or their roles will be minor (or at least not key). This goes along with them not mentioning Shailene Woodley who will have a minor role as Mary Jane, a role that will be expanded in ASM3.

Gwen Stacey famously dies in the canon comics and Emma Stone expressed that not to kill Gwen off would be a disservice to her character and what it means for Peter when it happens. So, basically, ‘that’s a promise he just can’t keep’ is speak for ‘the blonde is going to die’.

 “I adore the Donner films. Absolutely adore them. It just struck me that  there was an idealist quality to them that may or may not work with today’s  audience. It just struck me that if Superman really existed in the world, first  of all this story would be a story about first contact.”
