I know it’s way too soon to speculate on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as it is currently filming and set to release in 2014. There are already a bunch of interesting photos hitting the internet. One of my favorites shows off Spidey’s new suit. I really liked the costume from the first film but I’m a bit old-fashioned and it was great seeing a more traditional look being utilized in the next installment of Spider-Man.
As you can see, they have brightened it up and widened the eyes for a more classic look. Many of the cast are returning, Andrew Garfield of course, Emma Stone and Sally Field. Among the new players are Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Chris Cooper as Norman Osborne, Marton Csokas as Dr. Kafka, Dane Dehaan as Harry Osborne, and of course we all know Jamie Foxx will be playing Max Dillon aka Electro along with Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich aka Rhino.

Now the introduction of Mary Jane Watson will surely add an interesting dynamic to the movie. I know that Mary Jane and Gwen Stacy were both in Spider-Man 3 of the original series, but that doesn’t count as a Spiderman movie to me and I think everyone knows why. Which brings me to my next point, which is a frightening subject, and that would be what I call the Spider-Man 3 flop scenario. Never try to put too many villains in a single movie. It simply does not work for a two-hour movie. After hearing that this movie would be introducing main players like The Rhino, Electro, and Norman Osborne I immediately got a cold chill and a dreadful sense of deja vu. I’m not saying that it will bring this movie down like it did Spider-Man 3 but it definitely gives me some anxiety. I am really hoping that they focus on just Electro and have very little with Rhino and Osborne. but I guess I’ll find that out next year with the rest of you.

Among rumors flying around, the main buzz would be what character is Felicity Jones playing, many people are hoping she is cast as Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat which would make this a really interesting movie seeing as they are introducing Mary Jane but the same thing could ring true as it does for the villians, basically slow down and spread it out a little, no need to try to squeeze three movies into one.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is full steam ahead filming in New York city right now. Let’s hope they can top the first one as it was a great movie and I can’t wait to see where the story takes us next.
