THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Begins Filming – New Synopsis Revealed

The Amazing Spider-Man Banner 2According to director Marc Webb, production on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is officially underway.  I’m a big fan of the Raimi franchise, although I felt that Tobey Maguire was never right for the role, and I really felt that The Amazing Spider-Man was a great kick-start to what could be another great franchise.  As in the first movie, the casting for TASM2 is fantastic.  Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Sally Field return while welcoming giant newcomers Jaime Foxx, Paul Giamatti, and Colm Feore.  Along with the beginning of production, the synopsis for the film has been released.  Hit the jump to read the press release.
