Alex Kurtzman discusses The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Screenwriter Alex Kurtzman has been chatting about the threads left behind by The Amazing Spider-Man...
One of the most interesting things about The Amazing Spider-Man happened early on in the film, as we saw how Peter Parker came to be in the care of his Uncle Ben and Aunt May. Yet the movie didn't offer much in the way of resolution from that point on, instead following a similar road to the one taken by Sam Raimi's trilogy instead.
Screenwriter Alex Kurtzman, who has been hard at work on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, has been chatting about this aspect of the film in a recent interview.
"It's interesting, because the first movie asks all these questions and what I loved about it in so many ways is that it didn't answer them", he told I Am Rogue. "Part of what we were drawn to and intrigued by was wanting to know the answers to those questions".
He continued, adding that "the villains emerge from a lot of unanswered questions and at the end of that movie none of them are random at all, they are all tied together by a theme, an idea, and I think they come from our curiosity about what was going on in the life of Peter Parker and his parents".
This certainly ties into what we all know about the involvement of Oscorp in the first movie, and they'll no doubt feature heavily in the sequel given that Chris Cooper has been cast as Norman Osborne and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborne. We'll be finding out a lot more when the movie hits UK cinemas next April...
