It seems that on any given day some website out there has a new set of pictures from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man. Some are more exciting and better than others, but this most recent round really caught my eye.
Below are some really cool pictures of Spidey doing some web-slinging around Harlem. I’m sure there is going to be plenty of CG in this film, but it looks like they are trying to do a lot of practical-effect shots of Spider-Man swinging around New York as well. I imagine this is a hard effect to achieve and have look right and fluid using cables and a stunt man, but from these stills it looks as though they are doing a very decent job at it!
At this point I have a lot of faith in what Marc Webb seems to be doing with the Spider-Man franchise, but that is only a judgement from what I have seen from the slew of set pics that have flooded the internet. I’m sold on the costume, I think Andrew Garfield looks like Peter Parker, and Emma Stone has the Gwen Stacy look down! In fact, I included some additional non-action pictures of the two of them just because I’m so pleased with the looks!
The Amazing Spider-Man opens on July 3, 2012, is directed by Marc Webb, and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen and Sally Field.
