Cinepop.br has unveiled some interesting news from Sony Pictures Brazil that their upcoming Spider-Man sequel is now titled The Amazing Spider-Man: Rise of Electro, at least in that particular territory.
It’s not uncommon for films to have different titles across the globe, but there have previously been rumors that Sony was considering adding a subtitle to the sequel in lieu of a traditional number. We reached out to Columbia Pictures for details on this title change, but they couldn’t confirm the change domestically.
Do you think this subtitle should be added to the film’s title everywhere? Sound off below!
The Marc Webb-directed sequel stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, B.J. Novak and Sarah Gadon. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in theaters on May 2, 2014.
