Plot Summary: We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin.
It's great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). 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 (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.

Sometimes we agree, often we don't; but, ALWAYS we have a blast! One thing we have in common, no matter what we think of the film, is a life long love for Spidey! So, I can't wait to talk all things Web-Head with my good pals!

The summer blockbuster season kicks into gear with one of the year's most anticipated films, The Amazing Spider-Man 2! Will it quiet the critics who less than impressed with the first film?

This on Scottscope Talk Radio, The Roundtable reviews The Amazing Spider-Man 2! Is it any better than the first one? Might it actually be worse? Are there too many villains and characters? Does director Marc Webb truly understand Spider-Man? Will this franchise ever reach the amazing highs that it did under Sam Raimi’s watch? Is Andrew Garfield a better Peter Parker than Tobey Maguire? Does this film offer the best depiction yet of Spider-Man’s powers and abilities? Should Sony Pictures allow a crossover between Spidey and The Avengers? If so, should Spidey be the sole headliner of that adventure? Does anyone actually need a Sinister Six movie? Would Spidey be better off in Disney’s hands?
