THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Screenwriter On Unanswered Questions

Screenwriter Alex Kurtzman was out promoting the bd/dvd release of Star Trek Into Darkness and also supplied a tidbit on The Amazing Spider-Man 2. "The first movie asks all these questions and what I loved about it in so many ways is that it didn’t answer them."

TASM2 Screenwriter update

Alex Kurtzman, one half of the writing duo that also includes Roberto Orci spoke with iamROGUE for the release of the Star Trek Into Darkness blu-ray and also touched on his work writing The Amazing Spider-Man 2. On TASM2, Kurtzman and Orci take over writing duties from Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves who penned the reboot. Addressing the sequel Kurtzman stated, "Well, it’s interesting because the first movie asks all these questions and what I loved about it in so many ways is that it didn’t answer them." There are quite a few fans around these parts that would probably say they disliked the film for that very reason but the reboot does have its fair share of defenders. Kurtzman added, "So part of what we were drawn to and intrigued by was wanting to know the answers to a lot of those questions. So the villains emerge from the a lot of unanswered questions at the end of that movie and none of them are random at all, they are all tied together by a theme, an idea, and I think they come from our curiosity about what was going on in the life of Peter Parker and his parents."
