EXCLUSIVE: Rhino & Green Goblin's Glider Designs - THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2
Conceptual illustrator, Kelton Cram ("X-Men: First Class"), has sent us exclusive concept art of Rhino and Green Goblin's glider for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
CBM: What do you use as a reference for the Rhino costume?
Kelton Cram: Particularly Soviet tanks. Something the director had asked us to do.
CBM: The Rhino design strays quite a bit from the source material, was that decided upon early in the process?
Kelton Cram: Yes I believe so. The Rhino suit kept changing to alterations in the script. This is common in concept for film.
CBM: What was more challenging, designing the Rhino costume or the Green Goblin's glider?
Kelton Cram: Probably the Glider. It was a more complex order. The Glider had to move in certain ways, limiting what we could do with it. The Rhino suit had a bit more freedom to try new things.
CBM: Did you have to make sure the glider designs were aerodynamic, or was the look of it more important?
Kelton Cram: Yes it did need to be aerodynamic. The look was most important. Often times when designing technology that doesn't exist, rules of physics can be ignored.
CBM: What did you enjoy the most about working on this film?
Kelton Cram: I've always been a Spider-Man fan! Getting to take a crack at the villains was my favorite.

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp...
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be directed by Marc Webb from a script written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt. The film will star Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Sally Field as Aunt May, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, Jamie Foxx is Electro and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn. The Amazing Spider-Man sequel will swing into theaters May 2, 2014.
