Your friendly neighborhood Spider-man kicks off the new year with a new teaser of The Amazing Spider-man 2, which debuted in Times Square during the New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Comics legend — and Spider-man co-creator — Stan Lee introduces the clip, which features Spider-man (Andrew Garfield) battling a plethora of villains including Electro (Jamie Foxx), the Rhino (Paul Giamatti), and a mysterious figure on a familiar-looking hover board.

Directed by Marc Webb, the superhero sequel stars Garfield as the web-slinger and young New Yorker Peter Parker and Emma Stone as scientist and Parker’s girlfriend Gwen Stacy.

Spidey also made a special appearance on the Times Square Ball itself — taking “swinging in the New Year” to a new level.

The Amazing Spider-man 2 is slated to be released on May 2, 2014.
