Production begins on The Amazing Spider-Man 2; Marc Webb teases Oscorp

Feb. 5, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Yesterday, director Marc Webb was doing some mysterious twittering. He posted a photo with this "Day 1. #anamorphic #film #philthecameraoperator". Hints here? The first AMAZING SPIDER-MAN installment was filmed on RED Epic, so is Webb making a return to the standard technique or yore?

Here's the first production photo with Phil the camera operator:

Then today all was revealed. Webb tweeted another photo, but with something from Oscorp. All that accompanied the image was this: "Day 2. #oscorp."

Aside from Mary Jane (Shailene Woodley), Electro (Jamie Foxx), and Rhino (Paul Giamatti) serving as new characters, we also have the entitled friend of Peter Parker, Harry Osborn played by Dane Dehaan. Obviously since we've already seen Oscorp, does this mean that we will get a surprise with Norman being introduced? Oscorp is after all his baby. Norman was not shown in the first installment, but was a huge part since he was the center of Dr. Connors' work in trying to find a cure for Osborn's unknown terminal illness. So maybe he will get more than just a reference this time.

Analyze away.

I liked Amazing Spider-Man. My only big criticism of it was the fact that it was yet another origin story. Hopefully with that out of the way this can go somewhere new.

I think bringing the Rhino to the big screen with be a tough tough task. I mean, look how they royally screwed up the Juggernaut in X-Men 3.

Yay, more emo loser parker and another round of C list villains...

This will be mediocre at best, the first one was horrible but at least this one will have Paul and Jamie to spruce things up.

be original Webb? why is introducing someone who is a massive part of the spiderman a bad idea? plus its harry who's confirmed!!! i take it your one of these people that fails to see why the original trilogy is so bad. Webb`s and garfield are doing the character some justice, rather than having him just cry and whine all the time.

Hopefully the don't try to copy Spider Man 2 at all. The film is one of the best of all time. Don't try to make a carbon copy of something great and let the idea turn to crap.

I'm excited for this but I would still rather have Spider Man 4 and 5 with Maguire and Raimi back.

doesn't sound like he's copying raimi, does it? important glad we got a reboot as i can sit through any of the first 3. just terribly long boring films, especially the second!!

Is the Rhino confirmed? I thought that was just a rumor.
Anyway, I wonder what direction they will take Peter Parker in this movie. The "giving up the suprerhero life" is popular for first sequels, like Superman 2, Dark Knight, & Incredible Hulk (although not really a sequel). But it would seem too similar to Spider-man 2.
