In an evil Green Goblin Broadway voice, sing with me, Spider-Man, Spider-Man, radioactive Spider-Man. After receiving lukewarm reviews from most and a downright hateful one from yours truly, The Amazing Spider-Man didn’t exactly set the world on fire. They have a lot to live up to in the bigger budget sequel and are clearly betting the whole friendly neighborhood on it being a smash. The entire cast from the first film returns for the sequel, but then that’s not saying much as it wasn’t a particularly big one to begin with.
