The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is all set for production and the cast list and synopsis for the sequel has been revealed, which is set to be released on May 2, 2014.
According to ComingSoon.net filming has begun in New York City with other locations set for New York, the state. This is the first time that the Spider-Man franchise will be filmed entirely in New York.
CinemaBlend notes that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 synopsis has Peter Parker busy crime fighting and spending time with the love of his life, Gwen Stacy. Oh, graduation is coming up as well. The new villain is set to be Electro, played by Jamie Foxx. Peter’s old pal Harry Osborn, played by Dane DeHaan makes a return. Peter is also out to find out new clues about his past.
What doesn’t make sense is where was Harry this whole time? He returns? From where? If he is such an old friend of Peter’s why wasn’t he in the first? Also, there is no mention of Paul Giamatti’s Rhino character.
The sequel stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Giamatti and Sally Field. It is being directed by Marc Webb and is based on the character co-created by Stan Lee. It is also set to be released in 3D.
