B.J. Novak reveals... well nothing about THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 in Reddit AMA

B.J. Novak (The Office) just finished conducting a Reddit AMA and while he was asked quite a few questions about his role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, he stayed relatively quiet, only answering one question about what it was like working with Marc Webb.

Staying true to his ironclad non-disclosure agreement, B.J. Novak doesn't reveal anything new about his role as Alistair Smythe in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but he does make a brief comment on what it was like working with Marc Webb.

You can find his full Reddit AMA at the source link below. He answers several questions about his work on The Office and about his new book One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories.

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.

Director: Marc Webb
Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man
Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy

One more thing...

Hopefully there is a fire guy reference in the movie.

Is somebody merely mentioning TASM2 considered news-worthy? We already know he is in the film and we know it's top-secret, so what's the point of this?

"Somebody sneezed and it sounded like they said TASM2!"

"I heard an actor who is in TASM2 briefly mention they are in fact in TASM2!"

Why is he in this film? They're really overcrowding it.
JJJameson - 2/5/2014, 11:24 AM

It's clear after the Super Bowl that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the biggest blockbuster of the year, so yeah, every piece of news is pretty [frick]ing important.

Oh boy, if TASM 2 flops, Zauri is going to loose it...I can feel it in my knee.

Says that something is the biggest blockbuster of the year

None of the 'blockbusters' of the year have been released yet

MexicanSexyman - 2/5/2014, 11:34 AM
@QuestiontheAnswer, overcrowded my ass. If this movie is overcrowded, then the Dark Knight trilogy and Avengers were a bigger mess than it.
JJJameson - 2/5/2014, 11:53 AM

Why would I? I'm confident this will be huge, just like I was confident than Iron Man 3 and The Avengers were going be huge in the last years. It isn't like I'm the only one saying it, John Campea from AMC Movie Talk has gone on record saying that reliable sources have told him this is going to be to the TDK of the Spider-Man's franchise.

There's nothing on this film that makes me lose my shit. DoFP in the other hand, the less said about that travesty, the better.

Alistaire started the fire!
breakUbatman - 2/5/2014, 12:31 PM
No Zauri this is not important at all.

And its not clear that this is the biggest blockbuster of the year especially when you have giant robots on dinosaurs with face cannons. That franchise has racks on racks regardless of quality.
