‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ TwitPic Round Up: Times Square Set And More

by Brett White

The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is currently swinging through its shooting schedule on location in New York, and director Marc Webb is documenting the process on a near-daily basis via Twitter. We’ve reported on these images as they come up, but this week we decided to compile all of his TwitPics (and more) into one mega post. Check out all of the pics, including a touching tribute to Roger Ebert, below.

Here’s the 8 legged (appropriate) lighting rig used to light the elaborate replica Times Square set up in Bethpage, NY.

And while these pictures may have not come from director Marc Webb’s Twitter account, they are pretty cool and worthy of including in this post. Thanks to Comic Book Movie for the pics.

Day 41 of the shoot took Marc Webb to a set that looks more corporate, hence the shiny desk and fancy Oscorp cube.

A couple of extras got to don some unusual animal costumes. The railing and green screen seems like it belongs on the Times Square set. The odd thing is, even though Times Square has its fair share of oddly costumed performers (I walked past a Predator last week), none of them are generic animals. Could these be henchmen of some sort…?

Lastly, the “Amazing Spider-Man 2″ crew took a moment during shooting to pay tribute to Roger Ebert, arguably the greatest and most important voice in film criticism to have ever lived (and will ever live). Well done.
