Spidey's back – and he's as tortured as ever.
Sony released the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on Thursday. And while there are some new faces, it's clear Peter Parker is still struggling to balance his duties as a web-slinging superhero with those of a regular guy in love.
"Every day I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save, the more enemies I will try to make, and it's just a matter of time until I face those with more power than I can overcome," we hear Spider-Man/Parker (Andrew Garfield) say in voiceover at the trailer's outset as he soars over New York City.

Imagine photobombing Spider-Man.
Emma Stone got her goof on Thursday at the New York City opening-night party of the Mike Bartlett play Bull, popping up in the background of a group shot with her boyfriend Andrew Garfield and the actors in the stage show at the 59E59 Theaters: Eleanor Matsuura, Adam James, James Corden and Neil Stuke.
Stone, 24, and Garfield, 29, have their own creative project together, filming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which is set to open exactly a year from now.
The couple of more than a year costar in it alongside Jamie Foxx, Martin Sheen and Sally Field.

Spider-Man 2's James Franco has played his share of brooding boys, making the most of his troubled eyes in the 2001 biopic James Dean and as an outcast in TV's cult phenom Freaks and Geeks. But it's as Spidey's friend turned nemesis, Harry Osborn, that the 25-year-old actor has really scorched the screen. Franco recently took time to chat about his straight-from-the-comics character and getting a shot at Tobey Maguire.

Dunst recently talked about the blockbuster sequel, her life with Jake, and the time her boyfriend almost took over the role of Spidey.
