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 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.

Still haven't seen this movie yet, I'll be hiring it next week. Looking forward to it.

Not interested in this flick. TASM bit the big one.

"origin" of the spiders - neato

uncle ben in flashbacks - martin sheen kicked some ass

i really liked how they did uncle ben's death

the lesson of responsibility was very much in the film. i don't think i would have liked them to use raimi's version of the "responsibility" line

i think ben's death surely set peter on a different path

i wants me some villain news

Well that didn't spill much...
datNAMEtho - 10/27/2012, 3:52 AM
Well that's not much news.
tripttwe - 10/27/2012, 3:52 AM
It was okay, but forgettable....

just make it better than the last one.
IronSpider101 - 10/27/2012, 3:58 AM
Hope Marc Webb gets to do his own thing with/after this.

I'd hug you if in close range. *cue the Madonna song*
Logan5 - 10/27/2012, 4:18 AM
"hiring it.."

Wow! It's really that bad guys?! I know the Parker you want.., it won't play: Garfield is the best we can hope for. It could be a lot worse. Stop with the Twilight(I have those Rifftrax: hilarious)shite! He's got tooo skinny in the face to have his hair down. Attack me for talking about hair, but as someone that tinkers in ink for fun, it would'nt work. The guy really loves the character in real life.., is there truly a better guy for the role? I mean no disrespect for those that hate Garfield, but really? This guy is a contemporary Peter Parker.

ALL Webb must do now for the sequel is to STAGE the action set pieces waaaayyyy better than TASM and more on the par with Raimi's trilogy. u gotta storyboard it, then STORYBOARD it, damn it!!!
Logan5 - 10/27/2012, 4:23 AM
I'm for Mysterio, Kraven or Electro! Would be cool if they embrace the animated concept and have the crazy classic Elector facial design only present during closeups were Electro draws full power.., thus creating the iconic "Electro five point Jeepers Creepers look." If don't like send Daryl Dixon over with a crow kill.

@dwaynejohnson - i'm a fan of "like a prayer" :)

You probably got this, but the MST3K Experiment #920 : The Final Sacrifice. If you haven't seen it, find it & enjoy!
Logan5 - 10/27/2012, 4:31 AM's up there with Turkish Star Wars!
Logan5 - 10/27/2012, 4:35 AM
^had a brain fart and was thinking of something other than Madonna. :-P Was funny how that score/rhythm to her single basically cued every 5min in that movie. :P That was a decent '80's film though.
Logan5 - 10/27/2012, 4:38 AM
Sorry.., Webb did his best juggling the bull.., it was really his first dive into the machine. 500 Days of Summer was a major, but it still was a small budget with indie sensibilities. Laugh at me all you want people; that one hits home in many facets!
Jollem - 10/27/2012, 4:39 AM
@dwaynejohnson - sounds as kooky as this is

Logan5 - 10/27/2012, 4:39 AM
Logan5 - 10/27/2012, 4:40 AM

You all never cease. That's awesome man! Sincerely! LMAO!!!!
Logan5 - 10/27/2012, 4:47 AM
Yes I'm posting again about Jollem's post. :-P
Logan5 - 10/27/2012, 4:49 AM
That Ratner gif wanking himself.., I thought about that whilst driving earlier. :-D Good stuff!
CorronZenith30 - 10/27/2012, 4:51 AM
Man I love! It's the little things :-)
Logan5 - 10/27/2012, 4:52 AM
Raimi's versions to me are like Burton's Batman films. They are good, but exist on(not bad)their own. I really want to see Electro or Mysterio.., or Spaghettio(I'm an @sshole) in the sequel. :P
Logan5 - 10/27/2012, 4:54 AM
Seriously: Mysterio, Electro or Kraven. Sorry for the carpet bombing post session! Cheers!
AmazingFantasy - 10/27/2012, 4:59 AM
Bring it on.
Cosmic1 - 10/27/2012, 5:00 AM
Enough with the origin already it's stupid to drag it out over more movies, just give us a better story and some ass kicking action. So far Webb you get a zero in my book for your take on Spidey my entire family 3 generations disliked your film.
marvel72 - 10/27/2012, 5:09 AM
the amazing spider-man had its moments but nothing specisl,spider-man & spider-man 2 are better.

the amazing spider-man is probably slightly better than spider-man 3.

The Amazing Spiderman Rises!

Give it 12 months until everyone has seen TASM once or twice and everyone will relalise that it has nothing on the Raimi films. Right now, it is still new and different but give it some time and the majority will be slating this as boring. Ten years on since the first one was made and still I feel that it is more up to date than this.
Hudson3D - 10/27/2012, 5:18 AM
Long Live Grif!
Kalel219 - 10/27/2012, 5:22 AM

What a mouth full of a name...anyways, why is "hiring it" a bad thing? And really, just cause Andrew loves the character doesn't mean much since he was let down by a lackluster script


Hudson3D - 10/27/2012, 5:27 AM
@Kalel219 .. Thanks Bro.
Jollem - 10/27/2012, 5:31 AM
@Hudson3D - i am impressed with yer precognitive ability and the way you speak for the people :)
Originator2000 - 10/27/2012, 5:33 AM
Peter Parker should become more mature through all of the events he go through. And Uncle Ben should have a cameo like Ra's Al Ghul in TDKR.
baszs - 10/27/2012, 5:34 AM
The only thing that made the amazing spiderman fail, was the soundtrack.
if someone would put the old soundtrack of the older spiderman movies over the amazing spiderman it would be a better rated film.

CorronZenith30 - 10/27/2012, 5:38 AM
@ Kalel219 - I was baffled bout the remark about me "hiring it" too??
Hudson3D - 10/27/2012, 5:38 AM
@Jollem. What, like I am the first to ever give an opinion on here? C'mon man!
