When rebooting the 'Spider-Man' franchise, director Marc Webb brought many of the classic characters with him to the 'Amazing Spider-Man' films. One character that didn't make the cut was J. Jonah Jameson, Peter Parker's blustery editor at The Daily Bugle. Jameson was played memorably by J.K. Simmons in Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man' films and Webb now admits it's time for him to appear in the new series of films.
Saving the day, getting the girl, being a good guy -- it's all in a day's work for Peter Parker and his alter ego, Spider-Man. But as director Marc Webb notes in this new featurette for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Peter's going to learn the hard way in the sequel that he can't have it all because "life doesn't work that way." Webb teases the famous storyline between Peter and girlfriend Gwen Stacy, as well as Spidey's greatest threat yet: the Sinister Six.
Director Marc Webb’s second high-flying and web-slinging adventure in the world of our friendly neighborhood webhead, the Andrew Garfield-starring ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ is set to zip into theaters on May 2, but both Webb and Sony Pictures are eager to show off what they’ve been working on. At a special event in New York City, Webb introduced a small crowd to a selection of extended scenes from the upcoming film, over 30 minutes of fresh footage that was served up in a bid to get audiences primed for the next entry in the recently rebooted franchise.
And guess what? The plan may have just worked. The three scenes that Webb showed off (and was eager to chat about afterwards) are exciting, vibrant, and incredibly dynamic. So, what did we learn from our giant early look at the next ‘Spider-Man’ film? Quite a bit, and nearly all of it incredibly exciting (even for fans who might not have been particularly enamored of Webb’s first outing). Beware, there are some spoilers ahead, though we’ve tried to limit them as best we can.
With 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' set to hit theaters in just under two months, director Marc Webb has been one rather busy gentleman. In addition to promoting the new film, Webb is also preparing to go back to work for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3,' which will hit theaters in 2016 -- but for fans hoping that the director will stick around for the fourth film, we've got some news: Webb will sadly not be returning to the director's chair after Spidey's third installment.
A new international 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' trailer, dubbed "Rise of Electro," has been unleashed onto unsuspecting web surfers, featuring brand-new footage from Andrew Garfield's next outing as the web slinger. And you know what they say -- or, rather, what the trailer says -- when Electro rises, Spidey's enemies will unite ... and, boy, does he have a lot of them.
One of the goals with Sony's reboot of the Spider-Man franchise seems to be setting up as many of the webslinger's nemeses as possible. 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' will feature Paul Giamatti's Rhino, Jamie Foxx's Electro, and Harry (Dane DeHaan) and Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper), with at least one donning the outfit of the Green Goblin. Now Marc Webb revealed another possible bad guy in the movie.
Sony is starting their marketing blitz for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' a move that should culminate Thursday with the release of the film's first trailer. But before we get to see these characters in motion, new stills have emerged to highlight the hero and his new main villain Electro (Jamie Foxx).
'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' is already chock full of baddies for the webslinger to face, including Paul Giamatti's Rhino and (the main event) Jamie Foxx's Electro. There was even talk that Colm Feore and Chris Cooper have bigger parts to play, but could there be yet another hidden villain Marc Webb and his team are just waiting to spring on us?
