Okay while I wasn’t as happy with The Amazing Spider-Man as most people was, I thought it was a good summer film and I have been much more interested in the sequel and the potential awesomeness that could come of it. And while there has been a good few announcements made for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, there really hasn’t been much that I’ve wanted to blog about, but through superherohype again I’ve found something interesting to blog about:
“The Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield is ready for the sequel. Garfield was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week (video below) and he confirmed that the sequel will begin production in February.
Also, in an interview with E!, Garfield spoke about where he wants the sequel to go: “I feel really excited, I feel like we got over a hump with our first one,” he said, “We had to reinstate the character, and we had to reinvigorate an audience to the character. And I hope to bring more of this theme—the theme of the orphan. I wanna keep exploring that theme of being fatherless, being motherless, searching for purpose and finding a purpose within himself, being a self-made man, I guess.”
In case you think differently, Garfield takes his role as Spider-Man very seriously: “It is a responsibility to play that role, and I don’t take it lightly. I think there’s so much to explore with that mythology and within the tension between living a double life, struggling with being good, struggling with choosing good behavior over bad behavior, with the pressures of a city on your shoulders.”
Garfield confirmed with Ellen that the film is already into pre-production, which could explain why Emma Stone has already gone back to her Gwen Stacy hair. She was seen last night at the Ninth Annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards with her blond hair. Check out a photo from the event below!
Garfield also brought up the changes to the costume that director Marc Webb mentioned. Webb said the costume would feature ‘Bigger Eyes’ and ‘Gnarly web shoorters,‘ but it seems there was another reason for the costume change than simply a new design. “The suit is undergoing a redesign because I couldn’t urinate in it last time,” Garfield said “So I’m less nervous ’cause that’s gonna be nice.”
Shailene Woodley is also attached to co-star in the May 2, 2014 release. Though it hasn’t been officially confirmed, Jamie Foxx is expected to play Electro in the sequel. The Amazing Spider-Man is available now on DVD and Blu-ray.”
Okay so TASM2 is already in pre-production? Cool, I wanna see some Spidey and I want there to be more new and interesting aspects of the comics explored in this sequel. I hope the villain and action scenes will be more impressive than the last film and I hope that Peter and Gwen’s relationship continues to grow but be similar to the comics or maybe even the more recent Spectacular Spider-Man TV series.
