Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man and Jamie Foxx as Electro will face off in the new Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Andrew Garfield has his work cut out for him as Spider-Man in a new trailer for the upcoming “Amazing Spider-Man 2.” It provides a first look at new menace, Max Dillon, aka Electro, played by Jamie Foxx.

The video promises lots of action and spectacular special effects.

“Amazing Spider-Man 2,” not to be confused with the 2004 American superhero film directed by Sam Raimi, picks up where the rebooted, 2011 film “The Amazing Spider-Man” left off.

Peter Parker is still trying to maintain some sense of normalcy in his life while dealing with his new superpowers. He’s also trying to patch things up with girlfriend Gwen Stacy, played by Emma Stone.

Things quickly become complicated when Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), aka the Green Goblin, vows to exact revenge against Spider-Man for the death of his father Norman Osborn, who founded bio-engineering company, Oscorp.

Peter also learns more about his own father, who died mysteriously, and why he was so intent on preventing Oscorp from capitalizing on his invention, which inadvertently gave Peter his superpowers.

The clip also provides the first solid look at Electro, who gains superpowers after a run-in with an electric eel at Oscorp.

The movie will hit theaters on May 14. Check out the clip below and be sure to follow TheImproper on Twitter for the latest Spider-Man updates.
