A week from now, Comic-Con 2013 kicks off, beginning five days of non-stop craziness and first looks at some of the most exciting films, TV shows, comics, etc. heading our way in the near future.  Entertainment Weekly is getting a head start on this year’s Con, as the cover of this week’s issue gives us our first official look at Andrew Garfield’s Spidey and Jamie Foxx’s Electro squaring off in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  The sequel appears to have a couple villains, why not it worked in Spiderman 3 right?  Paul Giamatti is confirmed as Rhino, and we’ve got Dane DeHaan playing Harry Osborn, though it’s unclear if he’ll go bad this film or in the future, but the film’s principal baddie is Foxx’s Electro.  The character appears to undergo a drastic change in appearance in the film, and director Marc Webb’s take on the character is also rather different from the comics iteration.  I’m sure we’ll learn more during the film’s Hall H panel next Friday, so check back here for our full recap of the event.

The film also stars  Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.
