3 New AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Posters

If we could only see one movie in 2014, it would be The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (which hits theaters on May 2, 2014!).  The posters focus mainly on Spider-Man and Electro played by Andrew Garfield and Jamie Foxx respectively.  The first poster, which shows a beautiful bird's eye view of New York City is our favorite.  Although we do love the new images, we're crossing our fingers that we'll get another Peter Parker/Gwen Stacy movie poster before the second film is released.
