Amazing Spider-Man 2 Featurettes Go Behind The Scenes
Learn the price of being a hero

Following up a slew of trailers that threatened to give away half the film, The Amazing Spider-Sequel team has switched tactics to another classic standby of film PR: the behind-the-scenes featurette. Here, then, are the cast and crew talking about the stunts and action we’ll see on screen and, lower down, a look at some more footage as they explore the price of being a hero (spoiler alert: it appears to be $3.75). 

The behind-the-scenes peek, even though it doesn’t necessarily deliver anything new (and there are no big revelations like they secretly had to kill 73 extras and a kangaroo called Steve to make certain scenes work), it does feel like Team Spidey are going the Chris Nolan route where they can, delivering some big practical work alongside all the CG wizardry. Paul Giamatti even admits he was surprised how much of it they did for real, and how often Andrew Garfield was in the suit, clinging to the side of a truck, in the big opening set piece.

For the other video, it’s much more about Peter’s relationships with those he’s closest to becoming strained , including Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and Aunt May (Sally Field). From the looks of it, Peter’s having serious issues dealing with being in a relationship with Gwen and the promise he made to her late pop, Denis Leary’s NYPD captain, to stay away and ensure her safety. Plus, being a superhero isn’t all its cracked up to be: when you have a cold, wearing an all-encompassing mask can get messy…

With Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Felicity Jones and Campbell Scott also in the movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives on April 18.
