Director Marc Webb talked about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in the latest issue of Total Film magazine. Here’s what he had to say about the scope of the new Spider-Man movie:

It’s huge. We’re pushing the levels of effects, the level of action and the emotional capacity of this kid. It’s an aggressive step forward. We throw around the term ‘operatic’ because of the spectacle and the theatre involved, which is pretty epic. There are enormous sets and great set-pieces. But really it’s a very intimate song – this relationship between Peter and Gwen is very delicate and beautiful.

Perhaps we’ll get another sneak peek at these huge set-pieces this weekend. A commercial for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is scheduled to air during the Super Bowl.
