Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer Now w/Commentary, Vulture & Doc Ock Hints Made Explicit



Some of you thought you saw them earlier, and you were right – in this freeze-and-comment version of the trailer, Marc Webb, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx reveal more of what’s going on.

I’m tempted to use the old line about how if you have to explain a joke, then it’s not funny. But we’ll see – the general idea being put forward is that Oscorp is basically a supervillain factory. A metaphor for the Military Industrial Complex, perhaps, because that’s something we’ve never ever seen in a movie before. Though to be fair, when we see it in superhero movies, it’s usually run by someone like Bruce Wayne or Tony Stark who turns good.
