The summer movie season kicks off this Friday with the hugely anticipated Amazing Spider-Man 2, bringing Andrew Garfield back as the web-slinger to do battle with three new villains. As part of our extended look at the summer movie season (check out our full guide to the 33 biggest movies here), we've put together five info-graphics for five of the most anticipated movies of the next few months. We'll be publishing one a day from now until Sunday starting with this info-packed Spidey image.

Check back over the next few days or follow us on Facebook to see four more of this summer's surefire hits broken down in these info-packed images.

Today's graphic focuses on the characters of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which brings together three of Spidey's most famous comic book bad guys. While three villains might seem like a lot, we can verify that Jamie Foxx's Electro is the main focus of the movie. Green Goblin and the Rhino show up mainly to help set up Sony's ambitious new expanded Spider-Man cinematic universe, which will eventually include stand-alone movies for the Sinister Six and fan favorite evil-doer Venom.

Here's everything you need to know about the new movie's key characters.
