'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Plot Spoilers Revealed About Peter's Parents and the Epic Climax

The appearance of a major character has been confirmed, along with prop photos from the arrival.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is nearing the end of its long shoot, with new information leaking today about the film's climax, and the appearance of major characters only previously rumored to be making their debut in this second installment of the Peter Parker saga, which finds the young Marvel superhero searching for more clues about his parents' death.

Do we even need to say that the rest of this story will contain Major Spoilers!?

Turn back now if you wish to know nothing else about the movie's plot.

You were warned, so crybaby it up at your own risk.

Sony Pictures has announced that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 are confirmed, with release dates set for 2016 and 2018 respectively. Its been speculated that director Marc Webb is actually shooting a few scenes for at least The Amazing Spider-Man 3 while he continues moving fast on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and that the two films might even be shot back-to-back.

That has not yet been confirmed by Sony Pictures. The spoilers we've received from deep inside the production are plot points that will be seen in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but its possible that some of this stuff is actually being shot/saved for The Amazing Spider-Man 3.

There have been numerous complaints from fans that this sequel is just crammed with way too much stuff and far too many villains. We know Electro (Jamie Foxx) is making an appearance, along with Rhino (Paul Giamatti), and Dane DeHaan is starring as Harry Osborn, with Chris Cooper playing Norman. But most people don't think Green Goblin will emerge until The Amazing Spider-Man 3.

Well, we can confirm that Green Goblin will actually be making his big entrance during the climax of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Here is a photo of the glass case that contains Norman after his transformation, which he breaks out of.

This second photo is a mock-up of the Green Goblin glider that the stunt team has been using to practice on. It's a little hard to make out what it is, but follow the black around the edges to get an idea of the shape.

We also have a look at a model of the electronic billboard Electro is thrown into during one of his big fight scenes with Spider-Man. It is revealed that Electro can fly when he is over metal, and he uses this power to fly out of the billboard and around Time Square, exposing himself for the first time to the people of the city.

In terms of the all-important "Parent" storyline that this particular The Amazing Spider-Man franchise revolves around, we will see a flashback to the death of Richard and Mary Parker (Campbell Scott and Embeth Davidtz). More of the mystery is revealed, as we witness Mary getting shot on a plane, which causes the plane to go down in a crash, killing both Peter's mom and dad.

One last interesting tidbit is that Peter's new Spider-Man suit has an mp3 player built into it, so most of the Rochester chase scene we've seen some of in set photos will be set to blasting rock music as though only Peter can hear it in his head, much like the now iconic Library fight scene between Spidey and The Lizard, which saw Stan Lee in a cameo, oblivious with his headphones on, in 2012's first installment.

Does this all sound promising? Or were you expecting more? Are you excited that Green Goblin will be showing up for the big end fight scene in The Amazing Spider-Man 2? Will Gwen live or die? Or is this all leading to one heck of an Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back like cliffhanger?

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.

    Also that glass case houses the electric eels that Max Dillon falls into and becomes Electro. Not Norman becoming Goblin.

    Most of yall are saying the Parker parents die in a plane crash while forgetting that was a set up like the Summers parents from X-Men (Cyclops' and Havok's parents). They were American spies for SHIELD that seemingly defected and were caught. The plane crash was faked. Nick Fury kept them hidden from enemy spies and it did lead back to the Red Skull who was running the Nazis and HYDRA at the time. However, this is way too convoluted for a movie franchise and too crossed over to incorporate SHIELD or Cap's villain (who I'm guessing we will see again after the Cosmic Cube transported him to the Nine Realms).

    I can't wait until this movie bombs big-time. So far, i've seen absolutely nothing that could possibly work. Mr. LED Hoodie Electro (the second most ridiculous Spiderman villain ever created), their Spidey costume that looks like a caricature of Raimi's suit, the Black Iron Man costume wearing Green Goblin THE F**KING RHINO (THE SILLIEST SPIDERMAN VILLAIN EVER CREATED!)

    I hope they don't make Goblin a lame villain like Venom in SM3 and we only see him for a half hour. He better expand his terror through the third film as well.

    Hmm. Well, we all worried about three villains in "The Dark Knight," but that worked out so I won't jump to conclusions just yet. TDKR had technically five villains and it worked out well enough.

    @Kill-Bill But he does hire them on numerous occasions. It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to simply have it so that he gathers them together. It makes more scene than having them appear out of no where. In the 1994 animated series, the Sinister Six was called the Insidious Six formed in the beginning of season two as a two-part episode premiere, it was created by the Kingpin, he also forms them in Marvel Zombies Return. It's Doctor Octopus that formed the group, but it's always been the Kingpin that funded the group.

    really though, we were told the same BS about his parents when they were in post production for the first one, and we all know what happened there, so are we really gonna hear about his parents in this one?

    I don't think these guys know what they're doing. They shoot half a movie with Shaylene as MJ only to throw her out entirely at the last minute and now recast her for #3? Plus the too many villains to fill a movie is reminescent of the McGuire 3rd flick. I still maintain my stance that this series is worthless because outside of the first one, they're now getting into villains only the true comic fanboys are going to recognize & lose audience because of it. And yet, to counter that, they're going to rehash the Goblin who we just saw on screen a few years ago to boot? What's next? The Sandman and Venom in the 4th one? I wish them luck but rebooting this franchise so close to the last one when Spiderman doesn't have 7 movies worth of recognizeable villains to the average person was a BAD idea.

    Yes, I was right. GG makes his entrance at the end. I hope they go for the Ultimate look. As much as I love the 616 version I think it's too cheesy.

    It should all work out if done properly. I have questions on why Rhino and Eletro are even the villains if the Goblin is going to be suited up in this one. Wouldn't be better to introduce Harry and then at the 3rd act or even end of the movie or end credits have the big revel of the suit or something to lead into the Goblin then? I'm all down for any number of bad guys.... just do it fluidly and have them have a reason to be in the film. I still say that the Kingpin needs to be the villain, but now that Daredevil is back with Marvel, that's not likely to happen anymore. It would make scene then to have Rhino and Electro as villains because the Kingpin gathers them all up to make the Sinister Six and the Kingpin also has Oscorp as a rival. Sad that people that made the decisions on what gets put into the movies don't pay enough attention to story lines or watch the cartoons.

    Agree with Dbzfan91 venom and carnage but they need to have that movie dark and demented

    I love Spider-Man so I'm always pumped to see his movies but I really could care less about seeing yet another incarnation of The Green Goblin. I mean sure he will probably still be awesome but I want to see different unused villains in each movie. Except Venom. He needs a badass second chance on screen.
