! ! ! POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT ! ! !
There’s a new batch of on set pictures coming out of Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man II production and these pictures could spoil a key plot line in the movie franchise. Click through the jump if you want to see, but you received fair warning, no whining about spoilers on the other side.
Principle photography for Amazing Spider-Man 2 continues to roll in New York City. Recently, onlookers saw their first look at Jamie Foxx‘s Max Dillon and Andrew Garfield Spider-Man sharing their first publicly filmed scene. Naturally, everyone started getting pictures and video on their cell phones.
While the film crew continued to work with Andrew and Jamie in front of the Hearst Building, filling in as the fictional Oscorp Industries, those around them were busy posting everything they saw to social media. By the look of the flipped car and setting, it looks Spidey saves Max (pre-transformation to Electro) from getting hit by a car.
Meanwhile the people over at celebuzz were able to get a bit closer to the Columbia Pictures set, getting the finer details of Andrew and Jamie rehearsing and shooting their scene together. They nabbed a better look at the new and improved Spider-Man costume. Which, sticks closer to the comic book iteration we all know, and honestly the best representation of the suit seen so far. Jamie Foxx on the other hand, well, I’m getting a Jim Carrey as Edward Nigma from Batman Forever vibe. Not good. Anyway, check out the image gallery below:
As filming continues on Marc Webb‘s Amazing Spider-man 2, the first official images from filming have made their way out from Columbia Pictures. With people having already seen Jamie Foxx‘s Electro, with his blue skin and bald head, Webb decided it was time to show off the powerless scientist Max Dillon with the caption “Day 52. My name is Max.” A far cry from the Navi-skinned person we saw previously, Foxx is much more nerd than Peter Parker ever looked.
Check out the first look after the jump.
A lot of people have been disapproving of Foxx’s look, but they must realize this is a movie and there are make-up departments that specialize in making someone look different. Jamie himself has described Max as a “nobody” so it fits his character has to look the part. You can’t expect him to be all groomed and professional like Harry Osborn, after all. Speaking of which, not long after Webb tweeted his picture Dane DeHaan released a first look at this franchise’s Harry and thankfully he’s no James Franco.
Dane certainly looks like someone who’s the successor of Oscorp and if you’ve seen Chronicle you know how evil he can be on screen. He might finally be the Harry Osborn we’ve wanted for a long time. Now we just need to see Paul Giamatti and we’re all set.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Colm Feore, Chris Cooper, Sally Field, and Felicity Jones is slated for theaters May 2nd, 2014.

Marc Webb is currently in the middle of filming his sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man and, as has become a habit with this guy, he loves to tease the hell out of things with little bite-sized pics of what’s going down on set. Whether he’s trying to drive us insane or is just playing the marketing game is TBD, but it does seem like we get something almost daily from him.
This time around, a not-so-exciting picture of actor Colm Feore, who will be playing… okay, so we don’t know who the hell he’s playing. But here’s the picture anyways:
At first glance he looks like a suit of some sort. And there he is staring at… something. Thanks again, Marc Webb, for a shot of virtually nothing!
Check out Amazing Spider-Man 2 when it comes to theaters on May 2nd, 2014.
Thanks to blastr for the heads-up.
Just a couple new images to share, nothing earth-shattering, but if you’re looking for either your daily Star Trek Into Darkness or Amazing Spider-Man sequel fix, here ya go. Above we’ve got Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) rockin’ their Starfleet blacks. Into Darkness will find the crew of the Enterprise on an intergalactic manhunt for terrorist, John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch),
But of course, if you’ve been following any of the news around Into Darkness you know the real questions is whether Cumberbatch is actually Harrison or a update of a classic Trek villain. For instance, KHAAAAAAN. It’s been the movie’s most discussed secret, and with the flick releasing on May 17th, the may just manage to keep it a secret until then.
On to another sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which isn’t the official title, just so you know, is a little further off. The sequel isn’t set to release until May 2nd, 2014. Thing is, it’s almost like we know more about Amazing Spider-Man 2 than we do Into Darkness. We know Electro (Jamie Foxx) and The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) will appear as villains, we know Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper) will appear, we know we’ll see the first meeting of Peter (Andrew Garfield) and Mary-Jane (Shailene Woodley). That’s a lot more than I can say about Into Darkness.
Anyway, here’s an extremely cryptic new still of something from Oscorp,
Any thoughts on what this could be? Director Marc Webb added the caption, “There are chainz in there,” does that help?

So we all know that The Amazing Spider-Man has pretty divisive amongst fans when it was released last year (including some division amongst the Bastards here), but seriously, what did Sam Raimi think?
The director of the first three Spider-Man movies has previously said he was afraid to see the film, not because he was concerned that Marc Webb had done an awful job, but because he felt so close to the material. But now it seems that Raimi has swallowed that fear, and put the Blu-ray on his TV. So what did he think? Raimi told the gang at Hey U Guys in an interview.
“It was very hard for me to see the new Spider-Man movie, I felt so attached to it, I couldn’t see Spider-Man with another director; it’s like my love, and I didn’t want to walk in on my love with someone else. It was just like that. Then I got over myself last week and said, ‘just see the damn thing’. And I did, and I loved it. I actually felt free.
“I thought, ‘why am I carrying around this baggage?’ Of course the next Spider-Man story should be told, and [Marc Webb] did a wonderful job telling that. I loved the movie, and I’m looking forward like a fan to the next instalment. I love the comic book, and now I don’t feel bound, and I’m really glad somebody’s remaking it again.”
So there you go. Stop asking Raimi about Amazing, he loved it.
Of course, now the conspiracy begins: did he really love it, or was he trying to save face for Webb? Sound off below.
It was only a matter of time before we learned who’d landed the role of Norman Osborn, head honcho of Oscorp and eventual Spidey nemesis, Green Goblin. The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, and the role has gone to Chris Cooper. Man, that’s some damn good casting! Cooper makes a marvelous, sleazy, villain in a business suit. Not sure how his Green Goblin would stack up, but there’s no guarantee we’ll see that side of him in this flick or the next.
In fact, Osborn was mentioned a few times in The Amazing Spider-Man, and he was referred to as being sick and near death, so I’m unsure how active his role will be in this sequel. Cooper joins the film’s other villains, Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giamatti as Rhino, giving Amazing Spider-Man 2 and impressive roster of baddies.
What do you think of Cooper for Norman Osborn? Will we see him transform into the Green Goblin by film’s end?

The news coming out of director Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 production ha picked up as of late. Yesterday there was the closer look at some of the changes to the Spider-Man movie suit and today there are some new stills straight from the production set of the Marvel sequel.
Currently shooting in New York, we get some glimpses of Andrew Garfield‘s stunt double (I think it’s Shane Geraghty or Akos Schenek hanging upside down in the pictures), and some costume shots through the tree limbs.
Take a look through the gallery below and let us know what you think about the movie and costume so far in the comments section below. I think the changes to the eyes are a great nod to the comic book costume and will really stand out on the big screen.
Synopsis (So far):
Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds, life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
The movie’s cast is rounded out with Martin Sheen (Uncle Ben), Shailene Woodley (Mary Jane), Paul Giammatti (The Rhino), Felicity Jones (Black Cat ???), and Colm Feore (The Vulture??? Norman Osborn???)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 its way onto theater screens everywhere on May 2nd, 2014.
The basic design hasn’t changed much for Spider-Man in any of his big screen adaptations, but each version tweaks the costume just enough we get excited for a new reveal. Above is our first look at Spidey’s new costume from Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, what do you think?
Most noticeably this costume features larger eye-holes and slight differences in its color and texture. Below you can check out a side by side comparison of this new outfit with what Spidey was sportin’ in the first Amazing Spider-Man.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Jamie Foxx, Martin Sheen, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giammatti, Felicity Jones and Colm Feore, and hits theaters May 2, 2014.
