Production continued today in New York City for director Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man, revealing that Oscorp will play some role in the 2012 feature.
The below image, snapped by Twitter user @claimo, shows off an exterior sign from the city’s Hearst Tower. In the comic books, Oscorp is the company run by Norman Osborn, AKA the villainous Green Goblin (played by Willem Dafoe in Spider-Man and, briefly, in Spider-Man 2). Its relevance to the reboot is unknown and could mark anything from a surprise twist of who the villain is or, simply, a background gag.
More images (courtesy of Just Jared) show off our first look at Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker in glasses and another glimpse at Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. Click on either image for more shots from the set.
The action adventure also stars Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Julianne Nicholson, Irrfan Khan, Annie Parisse, Chris Zylka and C. Thomas Howell and hits theaters on July 3, 2012.
UPDATE: Reader Steyin has updated ComingSoon.net with more images from the set and the below description of what was filming:
“The Norman Foster ‘Hearst Building’ is being used as Oscorp. They were filming interior scenes in the lobby and mezz floors. I saw plenty of Oscorp employees (all wearing security badges), a couple of police officers (no Dennis Leary) and a couple of army officers (Generals I think). Crew members (two that I saw) were wearing shirts that said ‘Amazing’ on them in the Comic font. I also asked a few people if Norman had been cast, but they claimed to know ‘nothing’.”
