The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Set Photo Reveals Some Nausea-Inducing Equipment

Is Sony really cool with Marc Webb tweeting photos from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as he films in New York City? Does the studio have to approve of his pics before they are shared> And is he going to be able to maintain a visual diary of the production on every single day of the shoot?

So far, Webb has been impressively consistent, sharing photos of real cameras, of tantalizing Oscorp equipment, and a No. 14 locker that really stirred the pot with Spidey fans. The latest photo isn’t nearly as enticing, though I do love Webb’s #dramamine hashtag, shared on the director’s Twitter feed:

This looks like a warehouse scene, which has been green-screened to likely allow Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) to swing through the skies of New York City. That’s what “Dramamine” means, right? I’m trying to figure out what that cylinder-shaped device is in the monitor, because in the background, it only looks like gridwork to support equipment. Maybe Webb figured that after the possible Venom tease and the #happybirthday hashtag, he needed to back off a little and give fans a simple, straightforward look at some behind-the-scenes production photography.

Webb needs to start sharing shots of his cast in character … or perhaps a pic of Garfield in the updated Spidey suit. Then again, I’m on the fence about how much I want Webb to share on this Twitter feed. Directors shouldn’t spoil sequels. Leave that to the movie bloggers! The Amazing Spider-Man 2 continues filming in New York, and is aiming for a May 2, 2014 release date.
