I feel like we can’t go a day now without a new featurette or some piece of marketing for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘. While I will openly admit that the new production photos that I’m about to share with you probably aren’t needed at this point, we also have that concept art by illustrator Keith Christensen.
The photos primarily focus on Peter and Gwen. They also include a couple behind the scenes shots as well as one of a very sick looking Norman Osborn. For the most part, the concept art for Electro is pretty neat and I love seeing how it goes from page to screen. Though I do have to wonder why one of the shots have him in a uniform that looks as if he was just cast for ‘Tron’. Is this for a shot we haven’t seen yet? A bonus or cut scene? Or was it just so early in development that they hadn’t decided upon his look quite yet?
What is your take on the early concept art for Electro? Do you think they did a good job into the final product from the early shots we’ve seen? Any thoughts on why he may have had a ‘Tron’ themed outfit on at least one of them? Let us know in the comments below!
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ hits theaters on May 2, 2014. Andrew Garfield is back as Peter Parker, along with Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon/Electro, along with Dane DeHann as Harry Osborn. The film also features Sally Field and Chris Cooper.
