The Amazing Spider-Man Sequel Begins Production

Production has officially begun on Marc Webb’s sequel to last year’s The Amazing Spider-Man! Webb himself tweeted the below image with the message “Day 1. #anamorphic #film #philthecameraoperator”

Although the first film was shot digitally on the RED Epic, Webb seems to be going the celluloid route this time. There’s no word yet on whether that will continue throughout the production or if there’s something unique about today’s production.

The film will see Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Martin Sheen reprising with Jamie Foxx joining as Electro, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn, Paul Giammatti as the Rhino and Felicity Jones in an unnamed role.

The Amazing Spider-Man sequel is scheduled to hit theaters on May 2, 2014.
