Franklin Roosevelt In Latest THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Production Picture

Latest The Amazing Spider-Man 2 production picture hits the web, featuring a photo of Franklin Roosevelt and a possible hint at the movie's storyline...Hit the jump to find out more!

Latest THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 production picture features a photo (or to be precise - a photo collage) of Franklin Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States. The picture is accompanied with #thepassage hashtag. Could it be a reference to Justin Cronin's best selling novel 'The Passage'?

Justin Cronin's 'The Passage' takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, which is being overtaken by vampire-like creatures who are infected by a deadly, highly contagious virus. What's interesting, the novel begins in 2014 (The same year The Amazing Spider-Man 2 comes out) and spans more than ninety years, as colonies of humans attempt to live in a world filled with monsters who are on the hunt for fresh blood.

Also, the possible connection between the photo of FDR and the Spider-Man movies is the fact, that the final climatic battle between Spidey and Green Goblin in Spider-Man (2002) took place at New York's Roosevelt Island.

In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), 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.

What am i saying, It is FDR. SevenWebHeads is German I think. But what does FDR have to do with Spider-man. Does the passage mean some sort of quote?

Here is the original image.

Maybe he's talking about an ACTUAL Passage? Either literally, or metaphorically.

Ok, you were trying to be humorous with the D comment, you should make it clearer then.
dellamorte1872 - 2/20/2013, 3:22 PM
I feel like hat FDR clue Webb tweeted is kinda stupid b/c now everybody with an education knows where this clue is really headed
dellamorte1872 - 2/20/2013, 3:24 PM
Why let the audience know? That shoulda been a BIG surprise, he's blown it now tho lol
Jollem - 2/20/2013, 3:31 PM
i apologize :(

& now morbius(possibly),i don't know maybe the movie is gonna suffer from too many villains syndrome.
Jollem - 2/20/2013, 5:57 PM
too many villains? not enough villains!

spidey 3 was disappointing because of the story and things they did, not because of having 3 antagonists

Just like DOFP, the more I see about this, the more interested I am.
CoulsonLives - 2/20/2013, 11:14 PM
I don't cry about alot of movies. But this! This will be painful to watch! I wonder when Goblin shows up?
