It’s one of the most underrated superhero movies of all time: this thrilling adventure that unfairly destroyed a franchise is coming to Disney+

The superhero movies It has been hogging the public’s attention for years and it doesn’t look like that is going to change in the near future. However, not all films starring this type of character are devastating and there are even specific titles that have the reputation of being a disaster. Today I come to talk to you about one of them, well ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Power of Electro’ finally available in Disney+.

Released just two years after the first adventure del trepamuros starring Andrew Garfield, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ is considered a fiasco at all levels. It’s true that it grossed $708 million, but it cost a lot of money, and no live-action Spider-Man movie has grossed less. In addition, it had a rather harsh reception from critics and ended up putting an end to this iteration of the character. An injustice.

It is true that in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ it is noticeable that there is a certain saturation of elements and that the film would have flowed better if it only had one main villain, but at the moment of truth both Jamie Foxx What Dane DeHaan They match their respective characters quite well. To this we must add other details, such as what is related to the protagonist’s parents, which reveal that Sony wanted to play too many things at the same time, but I do not think it is something so serious that the film is loaded.

In return, this sequel understands the characters of Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy much better, allowing both Garfield and Emma Stone shine, especially in the scenes you share. Both prove to be overflowing with charm and talent, but they also have great chemistry that helps give that more human and emotional touch that makes ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ feel like a fable. All this also leads to a great outcome that would later be honored in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.

For my part, I think ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ was a victim of circumstance. The first installment came too soon with respect to the trilogy of sam raimi and it did not finish leaving a good taste in the mouth, which together with the fact that it is a film that is a little more complicated in terms of narrative -and that on top of that they removed things, which Garfield pointed out as the main problem of the tape – led to her being seen as a failure on all levels. Hopefully time will help put it in the place it deserves and not stay as one of the most hated franchises in superhero movies, which does seem to exist a certain consensus that Garfield was a good Spider-Man, but also how bad he was. They were the two adventures he led.

In fact, such was Sony’s disappointment that the company opted to scrap all plans, canceling both ‘The Sinister Six’ What ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 3’ and reaching a historic agreement with Marvel that led to the arrival of Tom Holland like this popular superhero – and I’m not going to complain about that either, that I love ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’-.
