‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Sequel Begins Production

Along came a tweet, from director Marc Webb, to announce that “Amazing Spider-Man 2” is officially in production — and here’s your first photo from the film to go with the news!

No, that’s not a new, mustache-free J. Jonah Jameson. That’s “#philthecameraoperator,” as Webb affectionately labels him. Pleasure to meet you, Phil!

The “Spider-Man” sequel stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti, with more casting announcements to come. The film is set for release on May 2, 2014.
