Official Plot Blurb For Amazing Spider-Man 2 – Oh, And Don’t Worry, Chris Cooper Hasn’t Been Cut

There’s a lot of tattle doing the rounds about a new plot blurb and cast list for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Many have noted that Chris Cooper, who has the role of Norman Osborn in the film, isn’t named in the notice, and have gone on to speculate that, like Shailene Woodley‘s Mary Jane Watson, he’s been cut.

Well, he hasn’t. And that’s a fact. He’s in the film, for sure, and his exclusion from the release probably has more to do with his contract, or that of the other actors, than any last-minute rewiring of the film’s story line and shape.

Here’s the official blurb now:

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

The first trailer for the film will be released on Thursday.
