Production on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 officially began in New York City earlier this week. Director Marc Webb returns for the sequel, and Sony just shared with us the film’s official plot synopsis … confirming a few casting announcements while revealing one more important name that has been added to the ensemble.
Expect Webb’s Twitter feed to be busy during production. Already, he has shared two photographs from the set, confirming the importance of Oscorp to the larger Spider-Man universe he currently is constructing.
In addition, Sony confirmed that Paul Giamatti has signed on to play The Rhino in the sequel, while Colm Feore has been added in an unspecified role.
Could he be playing Norman Osborn … aka, The Green Goblin?
We already know that Webb has cast Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley and Dane DeHaan to join original cast members Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Sally Field in the film. Here’s the official plot synopsis shared by the studio.
“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.
The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014. How does the plot sound to you?
