Comic-book fans and moviegoers got the chance to speak with the stars and crew of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ this afternoon at the studio’s panel at Comic Con.
Earlier today (Friday) attendees were greeted with the first real trailer for the film, which stars Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man), Jamie Foxx (Electro) and Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) and Paul Giamotti (Rhino).
The exclusive clip (which will most likely be released later this week) had the famed web-slinger soaring through New York City, much more attuned to his powers than in the first film. There he meets Max (Jamie Foxx), who is a nerd at first, but will later return as the powerful Electro. Foxx talked about his character during the panel saying, “We wanted him to be betrayed by love, his family and then his work. In the script it’s his birthday, and even his mom doesn’t remember his birthday. You immediately see he’s in a hole”.
Then comes Spidey (Andrew Garfield) who appeared to fans dressed in the iconic suit only to say, “I have an overdeveloped sense of responsibility. I was given these powers, and I don’t like a**holes.” Garfield also answered questions about his previous statements on a gay Spider-Man stating, “Spider-Man stands for everybody; gay, straight, bixsexual, transexual,” he added, “To me, love between two consenting adults is love. To me, that anyone would bat an eyelash at what I said to me is interesting.”
The Amazin Spider-Man hits theaters next May 2014.
