Fans of The Amazing Spider-Man who aren’t following director Marc Webb on Twitter should start doing that now. I’ll make it easy: click here. If you aren’t keeping an eye on his posts, you’re missing some very cool glimpses into production of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Until now, it’s been mostly behind the scenes players and props. But then he posted a quick video that includes a glimpse at the mask Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) will likely be wearing in the film, come May 2, 2014.
Here’s his tweet. Click on the link to see the video.

The man question raised by this video is, does just showing the eye reveal something? The black color around it almost makes it seem like we could see the Venom costume (as already theorized by some), but I think that’s highly unlikely with two villains announced already. Also, it’s a much smaller eye than the one we saw in the first film.
What can you make of this video, the eyes and Webb’s other tweets so far?
Columbia Pictures announced today that filming has begun on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in New York. The film is the first in the history of the franchise that will be filmed entirely in New York City and New York State.
The sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit The Amazing Spider-Man, the film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field.
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers.
The film’s key behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Dan Mindel, production designer Mark Friedberg, editors Pietro Scalia and Elliot Graham, and costume designer Deborah L. Scott.
The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.
