The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (released as The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise of Electro in some markets) is an upcoming American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man, directed by Marc Webb and released by Columbia Pictures. It serves as a sequel to the 2012 film The Amazing Spider-Man and was announced in 2011. The studio hired James Vanderbilt to write the screenplay and Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to re-write it.[5][6] Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti and Sally Field are set to star.

Development of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 began after the success of The Amazing Spider-Man. DeHaan, Giamatti, Jones, and Cooper were cast between December 2012 and February 2013. Filming took place in New York from February to June 2013. The film is scheduled to be released in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 2, 2014 in the United States.

Premise

Peter Parker continues to struggle with balancing his life as a high school student and his responsibilities as Spider-Man. When Peter begins to investigate more about his father's past, thanks to the help of his friend Harry Osborn, he begins to realize that the new threats of Electro and the Rhino all have one thing in common: OsCorp.[7]

Cast

Chris Cooper was cast as Norman Osborn, the president of Oscorp and Harry Osborn's father,[19] while Marton Csokas portrays Dr. Kafka, the head of Ravencroft Institute[20] and B. J. Novak will be portraying Alistair Smythe.[21] Martin Sheen, Chris Zylka, and Denis Leary reprise their roles as Ben Parker, Flash Thompson and Captain George Stacy, respectively, from the first film.[22] Felicity Jones has been cast as Felicia Hardy.[23] Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee will have a cameo appearance.[24]

Production

Development

Producer Matt Tolmach stated that there "will be more than one [sequel] and at the very least three."[25] The first sequel is set for release on May 2, 2014.[26] The sequel's villain was teased in the 2012 film.[27] Webb stated that the origin story would further unfold in the second installment.[28] In June 2012, Webb said he was unsure whether he would return,[29] though it was confirmed on September 28, 2012, that he would return to direct the sequel.[30][31] He claimed he "wanted to create a universe that not only can withstand but anticipate future storylines" while also "working in and of itself for one movie."[32] Andrew Garfield had also expressed hope to reprise his role,[33] and in September 2012, it was confirmed that he would do so.[30][31] Emma Stone was later confirmed to be reprising her role as Gwen Stacy, having signed a contract for two Amazing Spider-Man sequels. The original costume and mask from The Amazing Spider-Man was altered and has lens in the mask, making the eyes bigger. The web shooters were also been modified.[34]

Actor J. K. Simmons expressed his interest in reprising his role as J. Jonah Jameson from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy should the studio offer it to him.[35] In October 2012 Electro was rumored as the next villain.[36] Jamie Foxx was given the role.[37][38][39] That December, Foxx confirmed that he was cast as the character, and during an interview with MTV, he explained that the redesign of the character will be more grounded along with details of his depiction.[40] On December 3, 2012, Marc Webb revealed that Dane DeHaan was chosen to play Harry Osborn. In addition, according to Webb, it is confirmed that actor Martin Sheen will return as Ben Parker in the film, but with not yet any confirmed role to make. Paul Giamatti was confirmed as a cast member in February 2013.[41] Felicity Jones confirmed her involvement with the movie under an undisclosed role.[42] Giamatti also indicated in an October 2013 interview that he would return in The Amazing Spider-Man 3 as well.[43] On February 27, 2013, Chris Cooper was cast as Norman Osborn.[19]

On October 10, 2012, it was announced that Shailene Woodley was offered the role of Mary Jane Watson.[44][45] Mary Jane was confirmed as a small role in the film when on March 14, 2013, it was confirmed that Shailene Woodley had concluded filming her scenes.[46] On June 19, 2013, it was announced that Mary Jane was cut from the film. Director Marc Webb told The Hollywood Reporter that the cut was "a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship."[47]

Filming

On February 4, 2013, Marc Webb posted on his Twitter account that principal photography had begun. He also confirmed that the sequel is being shot on 35mm film in the anamorphic format, instead of being filmed digitally as the preceding film was.[48] Sony revealed this would be the first Spider-Man film to be filmed entirely in New York,[49] with the exception of a car chase scene that was filmed in Rochester because the speed laws are less restrictive in upstate New York.[50] This was to be the largest film production ever in New York City.[51] The decision to film in Williamsburg, Brooklyn near the Passover holiday caused some controversy, as critics believed that this was culturally insensitive, and would cause problems with parking.[52] The filming company decided to work with the community and then agreed to adjust its production activities for Passover.[53][54]

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield have been seen wearing graduation uniforms, suggesting they will be graduating from high school in the film. On June 25, Webb posted on his Twitter account that filming was completed.[55]

Soundstage work was done at Grumman Studios in Bethpage, New York.[56] On March 31, 2014, the film will be doing some reshoots in Downtown Buffalo, New York.[57]

Post-production

The film was mixed in Auro 11.1 and Dolby Atmos in the converted William Holden Theater. The mix for both was completed by Paul Massey and David Giammarco.[1]

Music

On July 20, 2013, Webb announced that Hans Zimmer will be composing the music for the film, replacing James Horner, the composer of the first film.[2] On October 25, 2013, Pharrell Williams revealed to Billboard that he will co-compose the score with Zimmer.[58] Webb and Zimmer formed a supergroup with Williams, Johnny Marr, Michael Einziger and David A. Stewart to create the music for the sequel.[59] The soundtrack for film is set to be released on April 22, 2014 by Columbia Records and Madison Gate Records.[60] Hans Zimmer described his work for this movie to be different from previous works that he did, thus revealing one of the themes for the movie, which was first heard on the website. [61] [62]

On March 31, 2014, a track called "It's On Again" was uploaded to Soundcloud. It features vocals by Kendrick Lamar and Alicia Keys. Via Twitter, Keys announced the song and credited Zimmer and Williams along with Lamar and herself for the song, and she included a hashtag saying "Spiderman", indicating the song is part of the soundtrack.[63][64]

Marketing

Andrew Garfield and Jamie Foxx at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con International promoting The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

On July 17, 2013, Sony released a clip from the film with the first released footage of Jamie Foxx as Electro to encourage attendance at their panel at the San Diego Comic-Con International.[65] At the panel they premiered a four-minute trailer, which was not publicly released but eventually leaked on the internet. Viral marketing for the film included a version of the Daily Bugle on the blogging service Tumblr, which included references to Kate Cushing, Detective Stan Carter, the ‘Big Man’, Izzy Bunsen, Joy Mercado, Donald Menken, the Vulture, Hydro-Man, Spencer Smythe, Ned Leeds, Anne Weying, J. Jonah Jameson, Shocker, Alistair Smythe, Doctor Octopus, Eddie Brock, The Enforcers and Puma.[66][67][68][69][70][71][72][73][74] Marc Webb tweeted a photo of a message in Dwarven language revealing that the first trailer is set to debut prior to 3D screenings of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.[75][76][77]

On December 8, 2013, it was announced that new footage from the film would be presented during New Year's Eve festivities at New York City's Times Square.[78]

The film was further promoted during the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) "Earth Hour" campaign. The cast was present at the launch of the 2014 event in Singapore.[79]

Evian serves as a promotional partner of the film. On April 1, 2014, the brand released an advertisement "The Amazing Baby & Me 2" featuring Spider-Man and a baby version of him, as a follow-up to their original "Baby & Me" campaign.[80]

Sony has announced that they will push up the release of the film's UK release by 2 days and premiere it on April 16, 2014.[81]

Reception

The film has so far received positive reviews. It currently holds an 86% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes from 14 reviews.[82] Tim Robey of The Telegraph said, "Marc Webb's Spider-Man sequel is overstuffed with high-voltage villains, but the sparks between Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone save the day".[83] Simon Reynolds of Digital Spy said, "Peter's past, present and future all intertwine in a sequel that offers bang for your buck. That said you can't help feel the franchise bean counters at work here thanks to all the ominous foreshadowing and unresolved character arcs. Too many cooks and all that..."[84] Leslie Felperin of The Hollywood Reporter said, "The eponymous hero hits his super-heroic stride here, as does Andrew Garfield in the role, especially when Spider-Man's alter ego Peter Parker learns there's always some fine print in a contract with this many benefits. The plot gets itself tangled up in multiple villain strands, but in the main, this installment is emotionally weightier and more satisfying than its predecessor."[85] Guy Lodge of Variety said, "Redundancy remains a problem, but this overlong superhero sequel gets by on sound, fury and star chemistry."[86]

Sequels and spinoffs

On June 17, 2013, Sony announced two more planned sequels to follow The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with the third film getting the release date of June 10, 2016, and the fourth film on May 4, 2018.[87] On October 2, 2013, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Kurtzman, Orci and Pinkner would return to write the third film.[88] In December 2013, Garfield revealed that he's signed for three films, but is not sure of his involvement for the fourth film.[89] That same month, Sony announced two planned spinoffs of the film series featuring Venom and the Sinister Six, with Kurtzman directing Venom and co-writing along with Orci and Ed Solomon, and Drew Goddard writing The Sinister Six and possibly directing.[90][91] In February 2014, Sony announced that Webb will return to direct the third film.[4] In March 2014, Webb stated that he would not be directing the fourth film, but would like to remain as a consultant for the series.[92] On March 31, 2014, Woodley told Total Film that she is unsure she wants to be in the third film as Mary Jane.[93] On April 7, 2014, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Goddard will direct the Sinister Six film.[94] On April 10, 2014, it was announced that both Venom and the Sinister Six films will be set before the fourth Amazing Spider-Man film.[95] Also on the same day, producer Matt Tolmach has talk about seeing Spider-Man in both spin offs.[96] On April 11, 2014, both Tolmach and Adai revealed the Sinister Six film is a redemption story.[97]

And it’s his birthday and even his mom forgot his birthday, so you will feel that. So when he does turn into Electro it’s serious venom, he really wants to hurt everybody, and when he feels like Spider-Man betrays him he really wants to hurt him bad.” Kelly, West (July 19, 2013).
