The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The last time we featured an update from director Marc Webb from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, now in production, it revealed a new cast member in the form of B.J. Novak. This time we don't get any new cast members, but we do get a fiery first glimpse at some of the destruction being caused by Jamie Foxx in his turn as the villain Electro in the comic book sequel. Unfortunately, we don't actually get to see Foxx, but the photo itself looks spectacular, and it's clear he's causing some serious problems for one unlucky police officer. They're on Day 45 of shooting, so hopefully we'll get a first look at Electro soon.

Here's the photo from the set of Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 via Twitter:

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is directed by Marc Webb and written by Jeff Pinker, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds, 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 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. Columbia Pictures will send the sequel to theaters early next summer on May 2nd, 2014. Cool?

Just go easy on the visual effects, okay? I'll pretty much be guaranteed to like it better.

"pretty much guaranteed to like it better?" Marc Webb and Co would be silly to go against your will.

No, it's just pretty much impossible to make a worse spiderman film than the reboot..

I have a feeling like this can be the standout Spiderman movie I've been waiting for. I can't deal with that Toby kid so despite Dr. Oct being an amazing villian, I needed to believe in the hero and bad guy. In this casting choice with Jamie Foxx I think we can have it all, this is going to be sexy.

...that black guy isn't Jamie Foxx. That black guy is a police officer.

Tyler Morgan on Apr 10, 2013


And Electro IS NOT BLACK!!!!

Angry Lester on Apr 10, 2013


Ultimate electro is black, deal with it, did you complain about the avengers using Sam Jackson to portray the black nick fury too?

Superman on Apr 10, 2013


That's not Jamie Foxx. It's just a cop.

Ethan Anderton on Apr 10, 2013


Ah, I sees it! Racist moment it seems...I saw black and assumed...I am ashamed. 🙁

I for one had a good laugh

If you had one upvote for every one of my laughs, you would have more than my limit of one upvote.

Most unimpressive. How does this even deserve to be posted?

James Park on Apr 10, 2013


It's amazing the shit studios pass on to media outlets today, like they think this crap will actually get us pumped for the movie. "Look, a fire that could have been caused by ANYTHING!"

axalon on Apr 10, 2013


Marc Webb tweeted this. It didn't get passed to us by the studio. And the quality of these behind the scenes photos, as opposed to terrible paparazzi shots, is much better and gives us a sense of what's happening on set.

Ethan Anderton on Apr 10, 2013


Pay no mind to the trolls Ethan .. keep it going .. if the studios wanted to release more they would .. just shows people we are going to get explosions and such

John on Apr 10, 2013


What trolling? It's a lame picture released by, even worse, the director of the movie. Stop trying to tease us along with vague pictures and show us something interesting. It's fine the Webb posts this stuff to twitter, but is it worthy for it's own post on a good film blog like this? No. I still understand why Ethan or Alex would have to post it, but I just think it's lackluster all around.

axalon on Apr 10, 2013


Honestly I dont mind the vague pictures, just as long as it doesnt show too much. I know if I dont want spoilers I should not even be here But I just cant wait for this movie, lil bits like this would keep me pump leaving my imagination do all the thinking of what/who's causing that destruction

Why again does this photo look "spectacular"? Flames on a car... With an unknown actor.

Gutsspill on Apr 10, 2013


The composition, the quality, the flames, the smoke, the embers. It's just a really well shot photo.

Ethan Anderton on Apr 10, 2013


I don't see it, but it's your post.

Gutsspill on Apr 10, 2013


Yaaawn. It's a boring generic photo.

Legion on Apr 10, 2013


The first one SUCKED.

Frank on Apr 10, 2013


Oh Lord Jesus it's a fire!

Fidel Reyes on Apr 10, 2013


I see nothing Spider-Man about this picture.

Jeez, a lot people hate on everything on this site. It's a movie site, they can post whatever they want that has to do with upcoming movies.
