** 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.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero:
** Electro and Spidey meet in Times Square. Spidey has managed to talk Max down and while Max is grumpy, he's still in a reasonable state of mind... until the police sniper [[ShootHimHeHasAWallet misinterprets Max stumbling and flaring electricity as a threat and fires]].
** [[spoiler:In the battle with the Green Goblin, Peter starts the gears of the clock tower moving in order to strangle Harry, which quickly leads to his downfall as the gears begin to whirl round to snap the web that is stopping Gwen from falling. Peter jams his foot in the gears which causes them to explode, both cutting the web that is strangling Harry, and the web holding Gwen. As if that wasn't enough, Peter's attempt to save Gwen is inevitably doomed to failure. He fires a web which grabs her, before grabbing a metal pole while falling at full velocity. The web going taut causes Gwen to suffer an extreme whiplash which breaks her neck as well as smashing her head on the ground floor of the clock tower.]]
