That’s A Wrap For The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Marc Webb Shows Off A Brief Video And Jamie Foxx Talks Ad-Libbing


spider-man bannerFilming for Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has wrapped after 100 days of filming. The director took to Twitter to make the announcement. Now the hard work of editing and post-production will being, but that’s going to be it as far as being out in the open is concerned. No more set pics or blurry paparazzi photos of Andrew Garfield and Paul Giamatti duking it out. 100 days is a pretty long filming schedule, but with an action and stunt-heavy movie like Spider-Man, you expect things to take a little longer. To commemorate the occasion, Webb posted this brief video of Andre Garfield perched high above the city.

Now that filming is finished, the promotion begins. Jamie Foxx, who plays Max Dillon/Electro, has been doing a little promotion while out and about talking about his upcoming movie, White House Down. Foxx and Channing Tatum sat down with MTV recently and Foxx talked a little about how Webb allowed him to ad-lib a few lines. Foxx explained one of the things he loves about superhero movies is the catchphrases. He tried to ad-lib a few of his own, and he even shared on in his Electro voice. The Spider-Man talk starts around 4:15, but Foxx says:

They would allow me to come up with things, because I think why you like going to see those types of movies, and that’s what I dig doing, you want to hear catchphrases. So at one point we were doing this green screen thing, and [Marc Webb] says, ‘Just ad-lib something.’ And I said, “The itsy-bitsy spider went up the water spout, down came… Electro… and wiped the spider out.


Now that line is exactly the same thing William Defoe said as the Green Goblin in the first Spider-Man movie. If it’s left in there, I guess they can say it’s a homage to the original. I’m sure Foxx had a lot more quips in his bag of tricks, so we’ll have to wait and see what makes it into the final cut. What do you think about Foxx‘s improv techniques?
