Marc Webb Talks 3D Shoot For “Spider-Man”

Director Marc Webb tells Total Film that his upcoming reboot “The Amazing Spider-Man” is being filmed in a way “very specifically for 3D”.

He says “there’s an experiential component to 3D that’s really fantastic and we’re experimenting with generating that point of view so you feel how Spider-Man feels when he’s jumping over these buildings.We made a conscious effort to do those effects practically and we had an incredible stunt team. We built this whole rig – hundreds of feet long – in Harlem, and we actually swung a man through traffic down the street. I thought that was really exciting, not to mention an incredible level of acrobatics!”

Webb adds a big draw for him is exploring the relationship between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and his mentor Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) who becomes the Lizard. “His [Parker] relationship with Connors, who is both mentor and adversary, I think makes for a really beautiful and interesting story.”
