Brazilian movie website Cinepop revealed today that Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be entitled The Amazing Spider-Man: Rise of Electro for its Brazilian release.

Sony Pictures has not confirmed whether or not this subtitle will be used for the domestic release of director Marc Webb's sequel, which stars Jamie Foxx as the villainous Electro. Last month, we reported that Sony was seeking fan opinions about possible subtitles, which included Price of Power and With Great Power, although neither of these have been confirmed yet.

We reported in October that the trailer will be attached to prints of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which arrives in theaters December 13.

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone reprise their roles as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, along with new cast members Paul Giamatti (The Rhino), Dane DeHaan (Harry Osborn) and Chris Cooper (Norman Osborn). Marc Webb directs from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released May 2nd, 2014 and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Felicity Jones, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb.

    "FOX" Worst Studio Ever! Another Studio Should Start A Old School Spiderman Movie Series With Original Characters with original stories and costumes.....iam sure there are a lot of people out there that would like to see that.

    Just to add a statement, when Fast & Furious 5 was given the new title Fast Five, I didn't like it at all because I always thought that the appropriate title for the Fast movies should always have Furious in with it, but then after awhile I grew into it. Point is, no matter what the title is, if you hate it now, you might grow to like it a bit later.

    If they really felt the need to add a title then why didn't they just go with the playstation title "Enter Electro" lol... too many titles with "Rise" in it. "rise of the machines, rise of an empire, rise of the planet of the apes, rise of the lycans, the dark knight rises" having said that though being one of the biggest spidey fans out there I'll be watching regardless of the title :P

    Why call it "Rise of Electro" when we know his villain will most likely be killed?
