More featurettes for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 take us behind the scenes of Spider-Man and Electro’s Times Square battle, revealing exactly how Sony recreated the iconic location through a mixture of practical and special effects.
They obviously couldn’t use the real-life location, so to see the lengths they went to are a fascinating sight to behold in the video below.
Meanwhile, the other new featurette offers up a look at how they brought Paul Giamatti’s Rhino to life on the big screen, taking us from the actor being on the New York set in a bizarre looking contraption to the final shot of the fully CGI villain preparing to charge at Spider-Man in the sequel’s closing minutes.
Re-creating Times Square
Bringing Rhino to Life
In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Chris Cooper and Paul Giamatti, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is out now!
