* CruelTwistEnding: Although many fans anticipated such happening, [[spoiler:Gwen's death]] can come off as this. See DiabolusExMachina below.
* DiabolusExMachina: [[spoiler:Just after Peter and Gwen defeat Electro, Harry joins the fray at the last moment (even though he doesn't have any real reason to be there) and is directly responsible for Gwen's death.]]
** [[spoiler:Harry told Max that Spider-Man would try to stop him at the power grid and to make him bleed, so Harry knows that if he would find Spider-Man anywhere, that would be the place to start. The fact that Electro had been defeated only moments prior is coincidental.]]

* NotHisSled: [[spoiler:Harry Osborn is the Green Goblin, instead of his father Norman.]]
* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: Subverted; [[spoiler:Gwen dies when Peter fires a webline to catch her after she starts falling from the top of the clocktower, and he grabs a pole to stop their descents before Gwen hits the ground. He's able to stop her mere inches off the ground, but her built up momentum results in her neck snapping and head smashing against the floor when the taught web makes her bounce.]].

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 the last film in the "Amazing" Series.

* BiggerBad: Oscorp, and most specifically Vice President Donald Menken. Their [[TheStarscream Starscream]] antics to the Osborn family, hiding of Max's "death" and blaming of Harry for the incident, and their "special projects" division directly lead to [[spoiler:the creation of the Green Goblin.]]

** 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.

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.
