The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Reveals… Franklin Delano Roosevelt?!

 As the New York production continues today on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, director Marc Webb is back on Twitter with another mysterious image from the set. This time it appears to be a collage image of America’s 32nd President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, along with the hashtag “#thepassage”.

One potential connection between the image and the Spider-Man franchise is New York’s Roosevelt Island, named for FDR and featured in Sam Raimi’s 2002 feature film for the climactic battle between Spidey and the Green Goblin. If you’ve got other theories, however, please share them below.

In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds, life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

Also starring Martin Sheen, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giammatti, Felicity Jones and Colm Feore, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters May 2, 2014.
