Watch the Amazing Spiderman 2 trailer.

The sequel to the rebooted Spiderman trilogy that began with Sam Raimi's trilogy that starred Tobey Maguire as Spiderman.

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 a greater conflict lies ahead.

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.

UPDATE/SPOILER: As it was previously revealed, Norman (Chris Cooper) does die in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) taking on the mantle of Green Goblin. Norman has been afflicted by a mysterious illness that only Peter Parker's blood can cure. When Harry, working as Goblin, and Electro fail to obtain the mutant spider blood, Norman passes away, and Harry is sent off to Ravencroft. In the post-credit scene, we are once again introduced to The Man in the Shadows, from The Amazing Spider-Man's post-credit sequence. We see him walking up to the cryogenically frozen head as he whispers, 'Wake up old friend."

So, Norman is surely going to make a comeback in The Amazing Spiderman 3.

Sadly, Columbia Pictures leaked this photo because test screenings for The Amazing Spiderman 2 are doing so poorly. They needed to pull the ace out of their sleeve to try and save the movie from tanking. However, this 'leak' will probably do nothing to add to the film's box office take, at all.

The studio even not so subtly puts the head of Norman in front of a large number 3, indicating again that Norman appears in Spiderman 3.
