The Wall Street Journal reports that filming for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will for the first time in the franchises’ history, be shot entirely in New York City. This is great for the storyline which takes place in New York City. The film has a budget upwards of $100 million and is being shot over 300,000 square feet at four facilities in Long Island and Brooklyn.
One of the sets infers that the film will deal with a transition to college. The set is that of a college dormitory at Columbia University. That dorm, appears to be suited for a female freshman. It is decorated with film noir posters and sparkly sneakers. Another clue is that the film synopsis states:
“high school graduation can’t come quickly enough.”
Chances are, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will advance the storyline into Peter Parker’s (played by Andrew Garfield) college years. Does the university dorm room belong to Parker’s current girlfriend (played by Emma Stone) Gwen Stacy? I’m guessing it does, since Mary Jane Watson (Parker’s eventual love interest, played by Shailene Woodley) is Parker’s neighbor in this film.
The sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit The Amazing Spider-Man, the film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field.
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.
