What we know
The Amazing Spider-Man #2 is been scripted by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci ( the men behind Star Trek and the previous two Transformers movies), based on a previous draft by James Vanderbilt.
Belgrad said: "We could not be more confident in the direction we are taking this new Spider-Man storyline and we are tremendously excited to be ramping up production again with Marc at the helm and Andrew continuing on as Peter Parker. We can't wait to share what we have in store for Peter and Spider-Man with audiences worldwide."
James Cameron influence on Marc Webb: Marc Webb had several early conversations with James Cameron about shooting in 3D stereo before he began tackling The Amazing Spider-Man. Webb, in a conversation with Collider, admitted that he had himself been “skeptical” before meeting with Cameron, who he says gave him “a lot of confidence in the idea".
