Marc Webb Drops Some Minor Details About THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Sequel
Hinting at a return for Martin Sheen's 'Uncle Ben' and the promise that the origin of the spiders will be revealed in the next instalment, The Amazing Spider-Man's director Marc Webb has reportedly let slip some details about the sequel on the commentary track for the first film. Check it out!
The folks over at ComicBook.com have somehow managed to get their hands on a copy of The Amazing Spider-Man's Director's Commentary and have revealed some of the secrets spilled by Marc Webb on the track. According to the site, he revealed that "the "origin" of the spiders that inform Spider-Man’s origin will be told in a later film" and while Martin Sheen apparently requested that his death be a dream sequence in order to return for the sequel, Webb would in fact be "open to possibly bringing the character back in flashback." Something which didn't sit well with a lot of fans was how the character's death was handled; the script danced around the "With Great Power..." line and Peter wasn't REALLY changed all that much by his Uncle's demise. Turns out that this is something Marvel were also concerned about. "[It]was the hardest change to get cleared by Marvel, who wanted to make sure that the tone and sensibility of the character’s death was retained from the comic book source material." The Amazing Spider-Man goes on sale on November 9th.
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
