Filming in underway for in New York for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit which will hit theaters in the summer of 2014.
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.
Dane DeHaan, whose role in last year's found-footage styled superhero film Chronicle has helped bring him to the forefront of talented young actors, was recently asked to share his thoughts on the script for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and what drew him to the film:
"It’s awesome. It really is. It’s human and it’s deep and it’s also epic and still a huge superhero movie. But it all makes sense and it all comes from very human elements and I think people are really going to love it."
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Chris Cooper, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field. The film, the first in the history of the franchise to be filmed entirely in New York, is scheduled for theatrical release on May 4th, 2014.
