Sure, you read that headline and said, “Come on! Who cares?” Don’t deny it, we know you did. We know you enjoyed The Amazing Spider-Man just a little bit more than you enjoyed The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II. Well regardless, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (or The Spectacular Spider-Man if you rather like that rumored title), is now before the cameras as of yesterday, the knowledge of which director Marc Webb shared via Twitter:
But perhaps more interesting than the news the production has begun on Amazing 2, is the news that Webb will be shooting the film on actual film, and not in 3-D digital like he did on the first Amazing. The film will still be in 3-D, but it will be converted in post, which is the general direction of the medium now. Interesting that just three short years after everyone went 3-D crazy to pad their returns, they’re now looking for cheaper ways to do 3-D for less.
Why, you may ask. Apparently, Webb himself was less than thrilled about the RED Epic 3-D cameras he used on Amazing 1, he considered them too bulky to do what he want to do. Perhaps, Webb was able to use over three-quarters of a billion dollars of clout to let him do what he wants to do on the sequel.
So is this good news or bad news for Amazing Spider-Man 2? Well, the look of the film, I don’t think, was the problem with the first Amazing Spider-Man, but more control by Webb has to be a good thing, right?
More news as it develops.
