After seeing alot of pictures from the set of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 now we got some information about the movie and about the new Spidey’s suit which comes built-in with an MP3 Player. Yes, we are serious. There’s also some speculation on Gwen’s death and how Andrew Garfield felt about the script that was written for it.
Here are the details that were posted on the Superhero Hype Forums (via CBM) :
I’ll post the facts…I can’t post the pics with the pop-ups because they don’t all pop up at once and it would be too many pics but by this point, you all know what Spidey looks like…and I misquoted Avi..when it comes to changing the costume he says they listened to the world..at that point, Marc, the costume designer, and others set out to redesign it
Eyes-“We’ve got the best eyes of any suit,” says Webb.
“Really big, very warm white eyes.” Unlike the eyes in the last suit, which were smaller and yellow, these are as large as possible given the size of Andrew Garfield’s head. “They’re very expressive in their own way,” says costume designer Deborah Scott.
Web Symbol -Traditionally, the Spidey suit has a weblike graphic on the chest. This time, the customer took an extremely mathematical and precise approach, says Scott, plotting out the design on a computer in 3-D form. The little-red brick patter is intended as an homage to the Tobey Maguire era suit. “You don’t want it flat,” she says. “That wouldn’t be interesting.”
The color -One of the biggest challenges was determining the exact shades of red and blue for Spider-Man’s suit. Scott chose hues that are much darker than the last suit’s, she says, with richer tones.
The belt -sharp-eyed viewers of the 2012 film noticed that spider-man didn’t wear a belt. “It’s there in the source material, so this one does,” says Scott. Why exactly does Spidey need a belt? “I don’t know,” she says. “He just always has. There are rules to comic-book characters.”
Web shooters-When redesigning the apparatus that Spidey uses to shoot webbing, there were practical questions to consider. “We wanted ours to have an MP3 player in it,” says Scott. “You’ll see early on in the film that he can turn music on that he’s listening to inside the costume through his web shooter.”
Reading it again, Webb says about all the speculation that Gwen dies: “You don’t want to make those kinds of assumptions.” When asked about the blog speculation and pictures online, he says he’s bummed about some pics showing up online but he expected it.
“But we do want to maintain some mystery. Whatever you think is going to happen, you’re going to be surprised.
Andrew’s exact quote about the script:
“One of the big struggles we had on the first one was to reinvent this already perfect character. This time we have this very, very good script that makes a lot of sense.”
When Garfield first read the story for part 2, by screenwriters Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Jeff Pinkner, he was impressed by the careful balance it struck between Spider-Man’s trickster humor and Peter’s emotional depth.
“I almost cried,” he says. “Because I was like, ‘THIS is what we needed and this is what we were missing a bit on the first one.’ I just felt like this warm rain of reassurance rushing through my soul. I was like, ‘Okay, we’re fine.’ If we mess-up, it’s my fault now.”
