Spider-Webb, Spider-Webb, does whatever a Spider-Webb does!

Director Mark Webb is back, and so are primary stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy, respectively.

And that’s kind of interesting. Digital video has become the standard operating platform in the film industry as of late, thanks to it being quicker and more versatile. But shooting on 38mm film? That means that the sequel is going to be in for some lengthy post-production 3D conversion time. Whether the celluloid approach is for the whole film or just that specific scene, is unknown, but it is a fascinating move nonetheless.

Or worse yet, Marc Webb is a hipster.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is currently scheduled for release next year May 2 (My birfday!), and also stars Jaime Foxx as Electro, Paul Giamatti as the Rhino, Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn and Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • I really hope that this one goes its own direction. I eventually got bored in the first one after it felt more like a paint-by-numbers remake than a reboot.
