I’d like to ask a couple of specifics, if I could?
How much time do we get with Norman in the second movie?
[Long pause] I’m not going to say.
I want to reward you for your column, but I have to be careful.
I thank you for that. That’s fine. Partly, you’re keeping it from ruining the movie for myself also. OK, is Curt Connors in Ravenscroft, and will we find out who that guy was in the end credits of Amazing Spider-Man?
Uhhhhh, nnnnnnn.... I’m not going to answer those.
Alright then, let’s see.
I’m just saying, you’re on to something.
Felicity Jones has been saying a lot about her role, her mysterious role. Have you read her quotes or heard her quotes?
I’ve heard something about it. She does have sort of an interesting relationship with Norman Osborn at the beginning of the movie.
Yeah, she’s a...
Can I tell you her quote?
She says, “I’m the goblin’s girlfriend.”
Oh, hmmm. That’s an interesting interpretation.
But she does in fact, yes, work for Norman Osborn, but I wouldn’t say...
Is Norman sick when we see him?
I don’t know. You’re going to have to see the movie.
Dammit, Marc. I’m trying here! It was recently mentioned that Hans Zimmer will score the film. Is that happening?
That is happening, yes.
Good, that’s exciting.
He may have another collaborator, but it’s too early to discuss that.
You shot a lot of this film in public, and a lot of it got out through set photos. How do you feel about that, because then you have to answer questions about The Rhino and ...
Yeah, but that’s, I mean it’s, I would say unfortunate, but it’s something we expect. And listen, there’s an enthusiasm and curiosity and I think that’s great. I love the idea of speculation, but I also, I want to preserve the surprise of it, and we are careful to conceal certain important plot twists and the surprises we want to keep under our, inside of our coats, as it were, under wraps.
So, I’ve read a lot of the stuff online. And every theory I’ve read is wrong.
That’s what I was going to say. But you know it’s wrong. Don’t you just want to jump in and say, “No.”
No. I love it! Because people often say things with such certainty, and I’m like, “Well, but …” You know, I don’t want to engage in that.
Ok. Tell me a bit about how Harry fits in here because he’s a new character.
Harry is an old childhood friend of Peter’s but he was sent off the boarding school, and … he’s just gotten back from Europe and he and Peter meet up for the first time in many years.
I think what’s cool about it is you sense, for Peter, it’s his first friend. You know what I mean? We haven’t really seen that part of his life. He’s been such a loner and such an outsider that you see a kid, and they’re bound by this sort of, you know, Harry wasn’t exactly well treated by his father and Peter’s father has disappeared, so they’re sort of bound by those daddy issues.
Do we get J. Jonah Jameson? Is he on the board?
There’s a little bit of Bugle. There’s a little bit of The Daily Bugle in the movie.
And that’s where we had to wrap. I hope you thought Webb and I covered some interesting ground. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be in theaters on May 2, 2014.
