Marc Webb Calls The Amazing Spider-Man 2 'An Aggressive Step Forward'
January 27, 2014
We're just six days away from The Amazing Spider-Man 2's new Super Bowl Spot and to further pump up the eager fans, director Marc Webb has some high praise for the upcoming sequel.
Speaking with Total Film, Webb spoke about the giant scale of the film saying, "It's huge. We're pushing the levels of effects, the level of action and the emotional capacity of this kid. It's an aggressive step forward....We throw around the term 'operatic' because of the spectacle and the theatre involved, which is pretty epic.There are enormous sets and great set-pieces. But really it's a very intimate song – this relationship between Peter and Gwen is very delicate and beautiful."
"Epic" is an appropriate term for the film, which will be the second in a planned four-film series that will further expand to include spin-offs for The Sinister Six and Venom in the coming years.
Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field and B.J. Novak, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D on May 2.
