New AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Photos in EW
With the film now in production, official details on Amazing Spider-Man 2 are here, and from no less of a source than Marvel itself.Paul Giamatti is listed as an official cast member, though his role — reported to be The Rhino — was not mentioned. One name is a surprise among the cast: Colm Feore, a 54-year-old American actor previously seen in TV series The Borgias and 24, whose role is not yet known. Here's the official plot description: "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."
Additionally, the movie was announced to be the first in the Spider-Man franchise to be filmed entirely "in New York City and New York State." Amazing Spider-Man 2, produced by Sony as part of a long-standing licensing deal, is scheduled for release on May 2, 2014. Got a comment?
