The movie was originally envisioned as a launchpad for a SharedUniverse of ''Spider-Man'' characters that would directly compete with the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. The plan was discarded. Instead, the company made a deal with Marvel Studios to integrate the character into the MCU via another ContinuityReboot in 2017 (and an appearance in 2016's ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''), [[AbortedArc abandoning all other planned movies]]. As such, this is most likely the last film in the "Amazing" Series.

** Harry is differently sympathetic than he was in the comics, [[spoiler: being the BigBad, and the Green Goblin that killed Gwen, rather than his father, whereas his comics counterpart was genuinely upset by Gwen's death.]] Harry is put into the position of running a company he has no experience with just for the small chance of finding a cure for his genetic condition.

** Downplayed with the character of Alexei Sytsevich (Rhino). He's the least advertised of the movie's villains, and he's also the one that gets the least amount of screentime. [[spoiler:Technically speaking, he doesn't even become the Rhino until the last few minutes of the movie.]] Downplayed because again, he ''was'' the least advertised, and his appearance ends up being [[spoiler:a clear SequelHook as Harry is building the Sinister Six]].

''The Amazing Spider-Man 2'' (in some markets, ''The Amazing Spider-Man: Rise of Electro'') is a live-action film based on the Creator/MarvelComics superhero Franchise/SpiderMan and the sequel to 2012's ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'', once again directed by Marc Webb and starring Creator/AndrewGarfield as Peter Parker[=/=]Spider-Man. It is the second ([[StillbornFranchise and]] [[FranchiseKiller last]]) installment in ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries''. The film was '''not''' well received, even receiving a lower score of 53% on Rotten Tomatoes than the now infamous ''Film/SpiderMan3'', which scored a 63%, and while still grossing over $700 million, is the least commercially successful Spider Man film to date.

* AbortedArc: It seems the arc from the first movie of Peter hunting Uncle Ben's killer has been dropped, despite it being a SequelHook last time. Of course, Peter could have simply found the crook in the TimeSkip between that movie and this one, as ''The Daily Bugle'''s Tumblr [[http://thedailybugle.tumblr.com/post/76556699294/an-editorial-from-daily-bugle-publisher-j-jonah supports this]]. Either that, or he can simply be a KarmaHoudini in this incarnation. This ''is'' New York, after all; realistically, searching for a specific street thug throughout the city with no solid information at all about him would be just like looking for a needle in a haystack.

However, all of that aside, one of the main narrative threads in the previous film was Peter rising above his need for vengeance and instead using Spider-man as a defensive measure for innocent people. It may be that the filmmakers believed that the storyline no longer served any relevance as Peter developed as a character past the point of executing a specific vendetta.

** The final battle with Electro shares many similarities with the final battle with Electro/Hyper-Electro in the 2001 PlayStation game ''VideoGame/SpiderMan2EnterElectro'', from the battle taking place amongst a field of electrical towers right down to the AGodAmI dialogue.
