Marc Webb promises The Amazing Spider-Man 2 won’t be overcrowded

31 July 2013

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 comes to cinemas next year and director Marc Webb has promised that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will not be overcrowded with new characters.

During the panel for the eagerly awaited sequel, a fan voiced his concerns that the film would suffer from the same problems as Sam Raimi's widely criticised Spider-Man 3, Webb clarified "The main villain in this movie is Electro, that's the obstacle that he's got to fight, and Paul Giamatti makes an appearance as the Rhino and there's a couple of scenes with him in, but that was to establish sort of a fun tone.

Electro is an incredibly powerful villain and one that is sustained for the breadth and depth of the film."

Webb also described Jamie Foxx's Electro as "god-like", and a villain who will present a unique physical challenge to Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man adding "How does Spider-Man fight someone when, if you touch him, it's like touching a thousand third rails? When your main weapon is a web that conducts electricity, how do you fight that guy?

How do you fight a guy who reaches out to an electric socket and can disappear into it and merge with electricity? It's a terrifying possibility."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will also introduce Dane DeHaan and Chris Cooper as Harry and Norman Osborn respectively.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens on April 18 next year and features Emma Stone, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Colm Feore, Felicity Jones, Marton Csokas and Sarah Gadon.
