The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield and Jamie Foxx grace the cover of Entertainment Weekly's annual Comic-Con preview issue, offering our first official look at a fully charged Electro. Also included is a photo of Peter Parker in his civilian attire, alongside Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn. Take a look, then read on for more details from director Marc Webb, and some intriguing comments from Andrew Garfield, who discusses the possibility of Peter exploring his latent homosexuality.
We reported last month that principal photography came to a close after 100 days on set. Marc Webb reveals that there was much excitement in the air as production wrapped on this sequel, mainly because the origin story told in The Amazing Spider-Man is behind them.
"You can feel it. People aren't scared. With the first one I felt it was important to retell that origin story. But that was kind of brutal because people were so familiar with it. Now that the origin story is done? We're off to the races. It's incredibly liberating."
Andrew Garfield speaks in the magazine about the possibility of Peter Parker exploring his homosexual side in future movies. He even suggested Michael B. Jordan as Peter's lover, should such a scenario take place.
"And I was like, 'What if MJ is a dude?' Why can't we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It's hardly even groundbreaking!...So why can't he be gay? Why can't he be into boys? I've been obsessed with Michael B. Jordan since The Wire. He's so charismatic and talented. It'd be even better-we'd have interracial bisexuality!"
Entertainment Weekly also released three more covers for its Comic-Con issue, featuring Chloe Moretz as Carrie, Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield from Ender's Game, and Tatiana Maslany from the hit series Orphan Black, all of which you can check out here.
