The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Official Synopsis Revealed

Columbia Pictures has officially announced that production has begun on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (director Marc Webb unofficially announced it on Twitter a couple of days ago). It will be filmed entirely in New York City and New York State (which no Spider-Man film has done before).

To coincide with the announcement, Columbia issued the following press release (notably, no mention of The Rhino):

“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 film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers.

“The film’s key behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Dan Mindel, production designer Mark Friedberg, editors Pietro Scalia and Elliot Graham, and costume designer Deborah L. Scott.

“The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.”
