THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Title And Synopsis Revealed; Colm Feore And Paul Giamatti Join Cast
Disappointingly, it seems as if the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man will simply be called The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The following press release was issued by Sony Pictures to mark the start of filming on the Marc Webb helmed follow-up and while it's possible that the title will indeed still change, this is the first time we have actually seen the movie referred to officially by this name. Regardless, it still offers up a brief synopsis for the movie and confirms that Paul Giamatti has joined the cast. However, who is Colm Feore playing? Could he be our Norman Osborn?!
Well, it seems as if Spider-Man will be neither "Spectacular" or "Sensational" in the upcoming sequel! A press release seemingly reveals that it will instead go by The Amazing Spider-Man 2. We also have the first synopsis and confirmation that both Colm Feore And Paul Giamatti will star.
New York, February 5, 2013 – Columbia Pictures announced today that filming has begun on The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2 in New York. The film is the first in the history of the franchise that will be filmed entirely in New York City and New York State.
The sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit The Amazing Spider-Man, the film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field.
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.
The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers.
The film’s key behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Dan Mindel, production designer Mark Friedberg, editors Pietro Scalia and Elliot Graham, and costume designer Deborah L. Scott.
