The Amazing Spider-Man
There's been a lot of Venom talk these last couple of days. We recently saw a cool short film focusing on the 'Spider-Man' villain, there was an update a few months ago on his rumored solo film, and just yesterday 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' screenwriters were giving props aplenty to the toothy character. Does all this Venom love mean we might be seeing him in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3'? If so, would that be a good thing?
'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' the sequel to director Marc Webb's first installment in the rebooted Spider-Man film series, has been busy at work filming in the Big Apple. Now, during Comic-Con 2013, Columbia Pictures and Sony brought out stars Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man, Peter Parker), Jamie Foxx (Electro, Max Dillon) and Dane DeHaan (Harry Osborn), producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, and Webb himself for their panel presentation on Friday, Jul. 19 in Hall H.
As 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' continues production, to hopefully reveal tons of goodies during Comic-Con 2013, a major cut was made to the cast -- Shailene Woodley's Mary Jane Watson was completely dropped from the second film. Though we, especially those familiar with the comic book storyline, already figured it out, the reason for this change has been revealed.
As 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' crew is learning, the problem with shooting in the public eye are the paparazzi. Tons upon tons of set photos have already leaked out online, giving us first looks at Jamie Foxx's Electro, Emma Stone's Gwen Stacey and even Spidey's new suit. And now the action keeps coming.
Following director Marc Webb's unveiling of the first "official" photo of Paul Giamatti as the Rhino in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' comes a full-body snapshot of the character wreaking havoc -- as the Rhino tends to do.
With all the snapshots from the set and promotional material already released for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' chances are we'll get to see all there is before the film hits theaters on May 2, 2014. Just the other day, Marc Webb gave us our first look at Jamie Foxx's Max Dillon, and prior to that we saw his transformation into the supervillain Electro. Now, even more behind-the-scenes photos have surfaced. Take a look!
