Director Marc Webb finished shooting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 last month (June) and the film is set to open worldwide on May 2, 2014. Andrew Garfield is back as Peter Parker and Emma Stone reprises her role as Gwen Stacy.


Alongside Foxx, Chronicle star Dane DeHaan is another new addition to the cast and plays Harry Osborn, Peter Parker’s best friend. Shailene Woodley had been due to appear as Mary Jane Watson, but her role has recently been cut from the film and MJ will now make her Amazing Spider-Man debut in the third movie, due in 2016.

Foxx, Garfield, DeHaan and Webb are all confirmed to appear at The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s eagerly-anticipated Comic-Con panel, which takes at the film festival tomorrow (July 19).
