Cast Commentary for The Amazing Spiderman 2
Since The Amazing Spiderman 2 trailer was released last week, fans have been itching with questions. What does Oscorp have in store for Peter Parker? Is that really Jamie Foxx in the Electro suit? Why does Rhino look like a transformer?
The cast of the film sheds some light on the trailer in a new video from Totalfilm.
For example: The opening shot of the trailer is also the opening shot of the film. According to director Marc Webb, this took eight months to make. It's well worth it - a breathtaking ride on Spiderman's back as he plummets toward the city below. The view emphasizes the humanity that makes Peter Parker a favorite for so many people, and the relentless journey he has in store.
Emma Stone reprises her role as Mary Jane, which is a first for Stone: "I've never played a character more than once." Mary Jane remains a strong character on her way to Oxford, but will likely be put in harm's by powerful forces trying to intimidate Spiderman.
The question that follows isn't "What bad guy?" but, "Which one?" In a trailer dancing with villains, Webb reveals that Oscorp is the common evil "from which all nasty things emanate." We're curious about its ties to Rhino and Electro. Webb admits that Rhino was a real challenge to recreate on New York Streets, and Jamie Foxx talks about the physical challenges of becoming Electro. Harry Osborn returns as his enigmatic self, helping Peter uncover pivotal things about his past.
With four months until the release date, fans can mull over a line from Aunt May that sums up the film. "Secrets have a cost, but the truth does, too."
