THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Concept Art Featuring A New York Chase Scene That Was Cut

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Concept Art Featuring A New York Chase Scene That Was Cut

Back in July we featured Josh Nizzi's fantastic concept art that he created for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man, and now he has updated his website with a plethora of new images. Check it out!

In the summer, when we featured Josh Nizzi's concept art for The Amazing Spider-Man we saw some pieces depicting a New York chase scene that was cut. At that time we saw a double decker bus, and The Lizard using a chameleon-like quality to blend into a digital billboard. I liked that image so much I included it below even though it's not "new", but it does help illustrate the missing scene.

Now, Josh has updated his website,, with even more images from that scene giving us a much better look. The bus, which is used for tourists that are sightseeing in the big apple, becomes the location of an epic fight scene between Spidey and the Lizard. During this battle the bus loses control and ends up crashing through some barriers, finally landing on the rink at Rockefeller Center.

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, and Jamie Foxx is Electro. The sequel will swing into theaters May 2, 2014.

THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 1/5/2013, 10:03 AM
If only the suit looked like that
Emanuel14 - 1/5/2013, 10:18 AM
That last picture is what I wanted to see in the movie, and of course was cut out
Kingdork - 1/5/2013, 10:25 AM
ManOfSuperguy - AMEN!
Kingdork - 1/5/2013, 10:30 AM
retardedfish- I got my point across at length and on multiple occasions on this site thank you!
GetsugaTensho22 - 1/5/2013, 10:36 AM
The only reason people think concept art looks better is because Comics are a visual medium. When it comes to comic based properties, ANYTHING will look better than the live-action version because it's a 2 dimensional image, just like the original source. D-uh.

Also, even though i sometimes over-exaggerate my hate for the movies, one thing i can say honestly is that the movie could have been so much better, but simply didn't live up to the hype. It's a decent movie, with some beautifully directed visuals and shots, but just flounders as a whole, in my own opinion.

Thanks for deleting a great action scene. From all of us Spider-Man fans...we salute you. Of all the scenes to delete, a CBM deletes an action scene. Dumb asses.
ManofSteel23 - 1/5/2013, 10:45 AM
Yeah the bus scene would of looked good,and yeah the suit could of been better,but they did say he will have a new costume in the next one
novaprime - 1/5/2013, 10:46 AM
why didnt they add that action scene!!!! wow that wouldve been great to see in the TAS,, hope electro gets this scene in the sequal!!
AC1 - 1/5/2013, 10:51 AM
Great movie, but that scene could've elevated it even higher, it looks like it would've been a really cool scene. Dunno how/where it'd fit in though, hopefully it wouldn't have replaced the high school fight. I guess it would've been an extension of the bridge scene, which would also give Spidey a valid reason for not checking all the cars after he saved that kid. Probably would've made the movie too long though.
MB007 - 1/5/2013, 11:13 AM
Man, that double-decker bus fight would have been [frick]ing awesome! That picture/drawing of the mask-less fight is totally awesome, too!! :-)
Jollem - 1/5/2013, 11:13 AM

would've liked to have seen this and the swat lizards

movie still rocked, tho :)
storyteller - 1/5/2013, 11:13 AM
So.........Garfield is going to be pumping the hell up. The while toning was fine for this movie but Spidey aint a petite guy.

jimoakley666 - 1/5/2013, 11:29 AM
It's a shame all this was cut out. That scrap on the double decker would've been great.
PeterParker1991 - 1/5/2013, 11:31 AM
wow. All I can say is... wow, cause this would've been awesome to see
Luminus - 1/5/2013, 11:31 AM
@ManOfSuperguy: The car theif didn't deserve what Spider-Man did to him? Are you serious? I guess you don't know any criminals personally, nor have you ever had your car stolen. I can have some of them visit you, if you like, and take some of your possessions and then we will see if you feel the same, afterwards. I can tell you right now, these people don't give a frak about you, your family, or your feelings and they will run you over and walk the blood dry if given half the chance.
birdfists - 1/5/2013, 11:36 AM
That would have made it so much better..

I really liked it anyway, but still, these scenes would have made it more of a contender with TDKR and Avengers.
FightAs0ne - 1/5/2013, 11:37 AM
I would have rather seen the double decker bus scene than crane dad and his crew.
Luminus - 1/5/2013, 11:46 AM
@ManOfSuperguy: No, he deserved to be humiliated. Humiliation is a powerful deterring tool. Plus, you don't know the guy was not a threat to him. All you SAW was a knife. Your inexperience with this kind of thing will get you killed.
Kingdork - 1/5/2013, 12:00 PM
Luminus - You know we're talking about Spider-Man, right? The car thief wasn't a threat to him AT ALL. Spidey usually plays around when criminals are too dumb to attack him, but this wasn't the case in the scene. In the scene the thief pulled out the knife in self-defense, and this was plain wrong. He didn't attack him once. But Spidey did. If he had pulled out the knife and attacked Spidey first, I wouldn't mind it at all. But here, that scene made Spidey look like a bully even though the guy was a criminal. This is not how Spidey operates.

@ Manodsuperguy
It's so stupid when people say Peter is a d*ck then list the exact same reasons as you. Those are all natural human responses. You telling me you've NEVER taken your anger out on someone? Try imagine confronting someone who you thought may have killed your father. Uncle Ben was Peter's father. He's going take his anger out on him, because he's the cause of it all. Humiliating him temporarily takes the pain out of Peter and puts it into the criminal. Have you ever had a family member close, as close as parent to you, murdered? Have you been bullied for all your teenage years? Anger corrupts people, even the best. Hell, watch what happens to Ned Flanders when he gets angry. Right and wrong are blurred, there's only unthinkable action, this is beyond anger, it's rage and pain.
That's gonna make you do things that aren't exactly reasonable to the views of others, but seem reasonable to yourself. Also, have you ever had a first love? Someone that goes beyond just lust, but actual love with someone who've you had a crush on? It's not easy to let go, because you'll feel like you'll never find anyone else. That's the one and only. Peter isn't going to just stay away from Gwen, just because he said that at the end of the movie doesn't mean in TASM2 he'll be making out with her at the beginning of the movie. He could have simply meant that as I still love you. It's called forbidden love, it isn't easy to resist. Peter is NOT an a**hole in this movie, he is just very human, something people aren't used to seeing movies. Most heroes in other movies aren't like regular people, they're more over the top, more comedic like, more symbolic. They don't necessarily react like we would. Tony is overly comedic, Thor is overly dramatic, Cap is a symbol of heroism and freedom, Batman has always been a darker more brooding character. Peter is just a regular teenager.

@ Kingdork
This is when Spider-Man is young and full of rage. It's not fair to compare this Spidey to how Spidey regularly treats criminals, because he's not got the very recent death of someone very close to him burned into his brain.
He sees the oppritunity to take his anger out on someone, someone who isn't exactly 100% innocent in the first place. The guy's a criminal, not some random innocent bystander. Seriously, Webb stated multiple times the characters are going to be more grounded and flawed. It's your own fault for thinking "Well that doesn't mean anything".
PapaEmeritus - 1/5/2013, 12:14 PM
@nail, i understand Yossarian's point. In general, it's more difficult working with large amount of writers. GL had 9 writers and, well... we all know what's happened! It depends on the director.
Luminus - 1/5/2013, 12:18 PM
@Kingdork and @ManOfSuperguy: A guy pulls a knife, and you don't think that's a threat? lol!!! Spider-Man was green as ever; there's no reason at all the situation couldn't have gone down like it did in Kick Ass. Word of advice, save your good hearts for people who deserve it and not these worthless low-life scum.
Kingdork - 1/5/2013, 12:27 PM
@CrimsonArk - Fair enough, I see your point. But I wouldn't have a problem with all these character things if Peter actually grew into something else or acknowledged some of his flaws at least near the end of the movie in a self-realization moment. There are core elements regarding Spider-man's mythos that cannot be changed in my opinion, like the fact that he MUST feel responsible for the death of Uncle Ben. I understand the urge for revenge and I was on board with it for a while until I realized that it eventually lead nowhere. My problem was that his first reaction was: "I'm going to get that guy because it's his fault and he must pay". It is understandable from a human stand point but that also sends the message that Peter doesn't really see himself a part of the reason his father figure was killed. He exteriorizes any form of guilt on the killer. He's the one responsible and he has to pay, period. Peter goes through that at first which is normal, but I thought he would eventually faced the killer and realized that he's also responsible and there, with this confrontation, he would undertand the value of responsibility and that venting on criminals is not the way to go. Instead another character had to point out that he wasn't being a hero. Fine, but what about the lesson he was supposed to learn from Uncle Ben's death?

@ Papamidnight
But 4 isn't 9. Vanderbilt wrote the screenplay, and it's being written by the 3. 2 of them wrote the screenplay for Star Trek, and the other wrote for Alias, Lost, and Fringe. Plus TASM2 wasn't going through the long development stages like Green Lantern.
CrimsonArk - 1/5/2013, 12:31 PM
@ SpidaTrev
Oh yeah, because Spider-Man grew famous because of Spider-Man, it wasn't in fact because of Peter Parker. You people SAY you know the character, but I'm starting to doubt that with a lot of what you people are saying here. It sounds more like blind bias or only a surface of understanding. Either that or you're out of touch with life and the responses of humanity.
Kingdork - 1/5/2013, 12:36 PM
@Luminus- Are you serious? You really think a random guy with a pocket knife is a threat to Spider-Man? It's Spider-Man! Spider-Man! How in the hell is a random car-jacker with a pocket knife a threat to Spider-Man?
CrimsonArk - 1/5/2013, 12:37 PM
@ Kingdork
The movie takes place over a matter of like, 2 weeks maybe a little more than that. It's not really going to all sink in yet, he's still coming off the high of being a hero. He is different from the beginning of the movie, he's less driven by revenge and more of duty. Like he said in the scene at the football field, maybe it's his job, but that doesn't mean he's going to be a flawless character at the end. It would be highly unrealistic that he just breaks contact from Gwen. Unlike adult Peter in Raimi's movies, he doesn't have a city to seperate himself from the girl he loves. He still goes to the same school as her, hell sits right behind her. He's not not going to say something to show he still loves her and wants to be with her. He's a teenager with no friends except for her, it all plays into when she eventually dies. It makes it karmic, more personal. It's REAL.
CrimsonArk - 1/5/2013, 12:40 PM
Also, I'm sure there will be more about Ben's killer in the sequel, since at the end of the movie when Peter was listening to the voicemail, Ben says "You're living with a lot of unresolved things in your life", as he says that the camera pans over the wanted poster and a photo of Ben. Am I the only one who noticed this?
MisterBabadook - 1/5/2013, 12:52 PM
While that chase scene looks awesome, having worked with ice, that final bit is completely unbelievable and wouldn't work. Ice is no more than 4 feet deep at the rinks, and THAT is generous.
Kingdork - 1/5/2013, 12:54 PM
We'll see where it goes. I still didn't enjoy TASM (and I saw it 3 times) but if the character moves in the right direction in the sequels then I may revise my perception on this movie. But for now, I'm not excited about what they hold in store for us, and I don't like this interpretation of the character (while I still like Andrew Garfield). But who knows. I love Spidey and if the sequel's good (which I hope) I'll be pleased to sing its praises. I don't hate for no reason or just for the sake of hating. If there's a Spider-Man movie I want to love it. It just wasn't the case with TASM. Overall I thought the movie to be very bland.

nailbiter111: "I wish more scripts were written by ONE person, but that just isn't how Hollywood likes to work."

Dredd had one writer and not enough cared to know…

Ichaos - 1/5/2013, 1:12 PM
Concept suit is ok but the eyes are too small
rbfn04 - 1/5/2013, 1:34 PM
Wait, so they said Spidey would be more flawed and it is OUR fault for overlooking it? [frick] wanting to see the character on the big screen. The director/writer said he'd be diferent. It's OUR fault, guys
Visualiza - 1/5/2013, 1:40 PM
I like Grif's idea. Scorpion needs to be adapted to the big screen. Sick battles would ensue.
datNAMEtho - 1/5/2013, 1:41 PM
Looks exciting, sadly... the film was not...
AmazingFantasy - 1/5/2013, 2:09 PM
Honest to [frick]ing God TASM would have destroyed Avengers in everyones eye if they had that chase scene, we better see NYC fcking up in 2 Webb.

You hear me sony you [frick]ers?
