Marc Webb, Andrew Garfield Sticking Around For ‘Amazing Spiderman’ Sequel & Unseen Raimi ‘Spiderman’ Trailer

Posted at October 1, 2012 by 0 Comment

After the success of the first Amazing Spiderman, no wonder Andrew Garfield is swinging into the sequel. Along with Marc “Must Have Been Hired For His Name” Webb, and a very probable but still unconfirmed Emma Stone, it looks like the original crew is sticking around to make some more money for the studio. And speaking of original crews, check out this early Spiderman trailer that somebody dug up from the depths of the internet, featuring Tobey Maguire with webshooters?

The sequel to The Amazing Spiderman must be a top priority for the studio, after the reboot’s success last summer. It will also be shot in 3D again, because the studio knows that’s where the real money is. And despite fan ruminations, there’s still no word on whether or not the trilogy will somehow lead into The Avengers sequel, and it doesn’t seem likely. The Amazing Spiderman set up a nice little world and some real daddy issues for Peter Parker to explore, there’s no reason it should trail off into the mega-machine that is Marvel Phase Two. Although the conclusion of the trilogy might lend itself nicely to Phase Three…

Big things are expected from the sequel now that the familiar origin story is out of the way, and it will begin production in early 2013, for a scheduled May 2nd, 2014 release. Could it become The Dark Knight to The Amazing Spiderman‘s Batman Begins? Doubt it…

Now check out this weird trailer for 2002′s original Spiderman, featuring rough graphics and a shot of Tobey Maguire with webshooters! The movie that could have been, before Raimi went au naturel on us. Supposedly it comes from 2001′s E3, although if this turns out to be somebody’s idea of a prank, I’m going to be really disappointed.
