The film finds Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) beset by villains such as Electro (Jamie Foxx) and the Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and grappling with a new threat in the form of his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan). The wall-crawler soon discovers that his enemies have a common bond — OsCorp, the experimental research company Osborn’s family owns.

Marc Webb once again directs and Emma Stone returns as Gwen Stacy.
