[Movies] March Webb Says Villain Overload Not a Problem in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.09.2014
They've made sure it all fits...
Director Marc Webb spoke yesterday at SXSW about fan concerns over too many villains being in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Webb addressed the concerns and promised that "villain overload" won't be a problem, noting that Paul Giamatti's Rhino actually only has four minutes of screen time.
"We're obviously familiar with the complaints people had," he said. "We're very careful to make sure the stories intertwine. For Peter Parker, it's very important that you create obstacles that are difficult to overcome… I'm going to embrace the spectacle. I'm not going to be beholden to smallness. I want it to be fantastic, to be big, to command and express that feeling when you're a kid and reading the comics."
The film opens on May 2nd and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Giamatti, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, B.J. Novak and Sarah Gadon.
