Sony Pictures is giving “the web-slinger” his due by rolling out the promotional red carpet for the upcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” The studio has launched a website at http://www.theamazingspiderman.com/site/#home. It has enough bells and whistles to keep any fan busy for hours with information, photos, games and activities tied into the sequel. Here are the site’s features.
Videos: featuring the following three trailers:

Endless Swing: Use your arrow keys to guide Spidey as he swings through the city streets. Pick up web fluid to keep moving forward. Watch out for obstacles along the way.
Danger Diffuser: When an electrical tower lights up, use your mouse and tap the tower as fast as possible to shut it down. The game ends when Electro takes over every tower. How long can you keep him in check?
Electro-magnetism: Feel the power of Electro as he harnesses the city’s energy. To start siphoning energy, use your mouse to tap the Electro bolt on each building, and then as the ball bounces between the two electrodes, click on it to see how much energy you’ve siphoned. You have one minute to earn a high score!
