Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Marc Webb talked about leaving the POV scenes out of The Amazing Spider-Man, grounding it in reality and more:
You’ve just got to feel it, and it’s about pace, it’s about tone and playing it a few times in front of an audience and refining those points. I was pretty cautious of trying to keep the pace as quick as possible and I wanted to do something more grounded emotionally; I wanted the actors to behave in a way that was more natural and that felt realistic and not stylized. And it’s tricky to use the word “grounded” when you have a nine-foot lizard running around the streets of New York, but we had a real person there interacting with Andrew to create some gravity and reality. So there was a philosophy that went beyond just the acting and the emotions, and that was keeping a level of physical reality and emotional reality.
