Posted Sunday, November 11th, 2012 01:42 pm GMT -4 by

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ has been in the news a bit lately. After finding out that the star, Andrew Garfield, and the director, Marc Webb, would be returning for the sequel, rumblings about Jamie Foxx playing the villain Electro started to make their rounds. All this news has come around at the right time because the first movie that started the Spidey story (again) is being released on DVD and Blu-ray this weekend. To promote the home release, Webb and his visual effects team have been doing some interviews to gain some hype for the film.

In an interview with ET Online, the director and his team speak about the appeal of Spider-Man, their approach to the new film, and some Easter Eggs that one can find in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’. Jerome Chen reveals two such hidden surprises in the interview:

“There’s a scene where Gwen is in the Oscorp lab giving a tour to a series of students and there could be Easter Eggs in there. There’s also an Easter Egg at the end of the movie.”

Animation Supervisor David Schaub elaborates on the ending Easter Egg:

“In the very last shot of the film where [Spider-Man] is swinging, gets himself shot out of the crane and he’s flying down past the George Washington Bridge and he strikes a pose, there’s an Easter Egg — but I can’t tell you any more than that — for something to come.”

Check out the full interview below, followed by the final scene in the movie. Can you spot the Easter Egg the guys are talking about? If so, share your findings in the comment section!

    Im not sure how right i am but the pose looks a lot like a position the green goblin would be in on his glider

      As he strikes the finishing pose, if you look to the right, theres a big house with a light on….looks similiar to norman osbournes house from the original trilogy.

    i totally agree with you @d6d4197fa99d76fce9dff861b9db3010:disqus

  • @d6d4197fa99d76fce9dff861b9db3010:disqus and @5278990ca57978e426e2254832ed2995:disqus The Bridge in the background is the easter egg because thats where gwen stacy dies, but she dies to the hands of the green goblin so that could be two easter eggs for the next movie

    • Jimmy

      I honestly didnt even notice a bridge haha did you happen to find the easter egg during the lab tour? I was looking for a hologram of a scorpion but I didnt find anything

    That building looks just like The bell tower spidey rips the black suit off. Not the to mention the black suit is hanging out in norman osbournes lab at 17:42 during the introduction of kurt connors
