Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone reprise their iconic roles as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, who face their most dangerous adversaries yet.

But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx, Best Actor, Ray, 2004), Spider-Man faces his greatest battle yet.   

 

Marc Webb returns to direct THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, which also stars Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn (a.k.a The Green Goblin) with Academy Award® nominee Paul Giamatti (Best Supporting Actor,Cinderella Man, 2006) as Aleksei Sytsevich (a.k.a. The Rhino), and two-time Academy Award® winner Sally Field (Best Actress: Norma Rae, 1979; Places in the Heart, 1984) as Aunt May.

 

Fans will be excited to explore the Blu-ray exclusive bonus features, which include the six-part, behind-the-scenes documentary, “The Wages of Heroism: Making The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which includes more than 100 minutes of immersive featurettes detailing the heroic efforts needed to bring the film to life.  Exclusively available on Blu-ray are nine all-new deleted scenes with commentary by Marc Webb, including the scene “Peter Meets His Father.”  Both the Blu-ray and DVD versions of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2™ include a Filmmaker Commentary, four deleted scenes and Alicia Keys’ “It’s On Again” music video.

Hey, look at that, a normal 3D release and those of us in the USA don't have to order it from another country.

And wow, 13 deleted scenes. That seems like a lot.

At a relatively normal price, too (for the 3D). Color me shocked.

Was this a native 3D movie, or a convert?

I'll buy this, if only for the special features produced by Charles de Lauzirika, who is a forum member and filmmaker in his own right.

The first one was native shot and more 2 and a half D, it would surprise me if this one by the same director was any better.

I would hope those deleted scenes include the ones that Shailene Woodley shot as Mary Jane before they decided to cut that character from the film even though they are promoting "Peter Meets His Father" as the big deleted scene.
