Director Marc Webb Discusses "The Amazing Spider-Man"


Latino Review recently sat down with the director of The Amazing Spider-Man, Marc Webb.  Does anyone wonder if the studio hired him based on the fact that his last name is tied via pun to a spider?

Web emphasised that this is NOT a remake of Sam Raimi‘s movie.  “There’s a new terriorty, there’s a new villain, it’s a different Peter Parker,” Webb explains.  When asked about the tone of the movie, he had this to say:
The Amazing Spider Man 2012 Movie International Poster“There’s this trickster quality we were very keen on exploring, with that humor and that fun and that wisecracking stuff.  We wanted to keep that alive, but we wanted to be very realistic.  We wanted that humor to come from a real place.  My aim was to create a world where you could feel all these emotions.  There are certainly darker, more intense feelings in this movie.  There is betrayal, there is tragedy, but there’s also humor and romance.  But are there moments of humor and levity and whimsy?  Absolutely.”
Webb was also asked about the 3D aspect of the film.
“Do you have to see it in 3D?  No, you’ll still get the thrill of it.  But those point-of-view sequences, those came directly from a philosophy about putting the audience in Spider-Man‘s shoes.  We wanted them to feel what he feels, and that’s where those sequences come from.”
The Amazing Spider-Man swings into theaters July 3.
