Johnny Marr is working with Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer on the score to The Amazing Spider Man 2, it has been revealed.

A tweet from Marc Webb, director of the eagerly anticipated comic book sequel, showed a picture of Marr with Williams and Zimmer as well as Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger. The tweet, which you can see below, confirmed that the four musicians are working on music for the film, which will be released in 2014.

Pharrell Williams previously revealed that he was working with Zimmer on the film, but did not mention Marr's involvement. Speaking to Billboard earlier this month (October) about who he is in the studio with, the Daft Punk and Robin Thicke collaborator said: "Ed Sheeran. Usher. I’m going back in with T.I. Beyonce. Jennifer Hudson. Hans Zimmer and I are scoring The Amazing Spider Man 2."

Director Marc Webb finished shooting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in June and the film is set to open worldwide on May 2, 2014. British actor Andrew Garfield will return to the screen as Peter Parker while Emma Stone is back as Gwen Stacy and Sally Field reprises her role as Peter's Aunt May. Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan and Shailene Woodley are all new additions to the cast.
