Its funny how we look at a movie like Amazing Spider-Man 2 and call it a disappointment when it took in $708 million worldwide and it was visually stunning. I think the folks at ImageworksVFX wanted to remind us of the second part as they released a behind the scenes look at the environment building VFX for the Time Square and swinging scenes.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – NYC Environment and Times Square Shot Build
We've always known that Spider-Man's most important conflict has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin.
It's great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.
