Gavin Miller takes a look at The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (12U), due out Friday.

Andrew Garfield’s latest incarnation of Spidey returns for his second outing in less than two years – and let’s hope it doesn’t fall foul of Spider-Man 3 syndrome.

That film was critically panned after being overloaded with villains, and this time round the Web-slinger also has three foes to deal with.

They come in the form of Electro (Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx), Rhino (Oscar-nominated Paul Giamatti) and the Green Goblin (Chronicle’s dane DeHaan).

Emma Stone and Sally Field return in their respective roles of Gwen Stacey and Aunt May, in what should be one of the biggest movies of the coming months – the summer box-office season starting early due to the late Easter weekend.
