- THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2
|Gwen Stacy meets Mary Jane|
The Amazing Spider-Man sequel begun filming back in February, with the entire comic book community waiting to see if this latest tale of our favorite wall crawler will deliver.
With that being said, we been getting loads of images from the set of the film. the latest images from the set revealed that Gwen Stacy (played by Emma Stone) and Mary Jane-Watson (played by Shailene Woodley) will come face to face.
Directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field and Chris Cooper.
Here are the set pics:
In a recent interview Dane Dehaan spoke about his upcoming role in the Amazing Spider-Man 2 as well as spoke about the dynamic his past and present characters had/have with their fathers.
"First of all, 'Chronicle' was about a kid with an abusive father," said DeHaan. "'Place Beyond the Pines' is about a kid who doesn't know who his father is, and they're very different relationships. Obviously with Harry Osborn, the privilege of it is another dynamic. The relationship Harry has with Norman is a different dynamic. Every son has a relationship with their father, whether that father is there or not, and that always has an effect on the person whether they admit it or not. There's a lot of different ways those relationships are complicated."
As for whether there is more to be mined from this character that James Franco didn't touch on in Sam Raimi's trilogy, DeHaan seemed hesitant to draw a comparison.
"I dunno, I mean Franco did his thing, I'll do my thing," DeHaan stated dryly.
When the subject turned to his lack of comic book nerddom, DeHaan was much more outspoken, although hinting that he is indeed doing his homework with about a stack or two of Marvel trade paperbacks.
"I don't think you have to be a fan of something to do the job," he said matter-of-factly. "I think ultimately it's important that I'm familiar with past takes on the Osborn story, more for like common, know-it-all 'cause it's stuff I should know. My job as an actor is the same job, whether it’s a comic book movie or a gritty Derek Cianfrance drama, or a 'Chronicle,' or a 'Lawless,' which is to take a character and, for lack of better word, to breathe life into it. I'm a fan of acting!"
Testing the waters to see if DeHaan was interested in making his mark on another mega-franchise, we pointed out his remarkable similarity to a young Mark Hamill and asked him point-blank if he'd be interested in entering the "Star Wars" universe as a young Skywalker progeny in Star Wars: Episode VII.
"My dad would really like that!" DeHaan smiled. "My dad's a really big 'Star Wars' fan. I've never really been a 'Star Wars' fan, though. I dunno why, maybe it's 'cause my dad liked it so much. (laughs) I have no idea why, it's just never really been my thing. I've always gravitated towards comic book movies. I don't read comic books, but I love the last Batman franchise, Sam Raimi's second 'Spider-Man' was pretty sick. The first 'Iron Man' was really great, I couldn't wait for 'Captain America' to come out. Those are my guilty pleasures for sure."
In the May 2, 2014 release, 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.
