Super Bowl Spot - The Amazing Spider-Man 2
A depressed loner becomes a supervillain after feeling dismissed by the hero? Everything on screen is lathered in dayglow slime? I've already seen this movie! It's called Batman Forever! Snark aside, an unbalanced human bomb trying to emulate Spidey is a nifty idea for a 90 minute film. Shame this plot point will just be noise in a punishing 150 minute franchise instalment lousy with opponents. Considering Spider-Man 3 is (wrongly) as fondly remembered as bin stink, it's strange Sony can't wait to emulate it's wonky excesses. Still, it's a kick seeing Jamie Foxx dressed up as Red Dwarf's Duane Dibbley.
