Movie Magic Behind Electro & Rhino Scenes - AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 GIFs & Videos
Entertainment Weekly chatted with Jerome Chen, visual effects supervisor on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, about the work that his team at Sony Pictures Imageworks did. One section of the article that I found quite interesting, besides the GIFs and videos (below), was what he had to say about the design of Rhino.
EW has posted a new Amazing Spider-Man 2 article that features an interview with Sony Pictures Imageworks VFX Supervisor Jerome Chen as well as GIFs and videos showcasing the digital work that went into the Times Square and Rhino scenes.
“The artists are fanboys and fangirls themselves, and there’s just this thing about mechanical robots that everyone loves, coming from Pacific Rim to Rhino to Transformers. So they put a lot of detail into it — rivets, even down to messy weld points — and if you study it, every piece looks like it’s from a different vehicle. They wanted it to look like Paul Giamatti’s character was given a base version of this mechanical suit put together out of surplus Soviet-era military gear that OsCorp had sold back in the ’80s and he went ahead and customized it himself. So the head looks kind of unfinished, like he drew it on a piece of toilet paper and then had someone weld it together.” - Jerome Chen

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...
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, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, Jamie Foxx is Electro and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn. The Amazing Spider-Man sequel will swing into theaters May 2, 2014.
