Where did you watch this movie?

We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It's great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

Did you know? This is the third time Pharrell Williams is working with Hans Zimmer. Not only did Williams once again provide some tunes for Steve Carrell's Gru in 'Despicable Me 2', he also did some collaboration with Hans Zimmer on the 'Man of Steel' score as a musician as part of the drum orchestra.

Continuity
At Gwen's interview in the British embassy the colour of her skirt changes from black to red.

Factual Mistake
Towards the end of the film, Spiderman takes his web and uses it to connect to the different power conduits that Electro blew open, ties them together, and power the city back up. Electricity uses several different wires, and crossing them causes things to blow up or short out. What should have happened when Gwen threw the switch was another power failure, instead of the city's power being restored.

Continuity
After Peter gets his diploma and has a chat with Gwen, the sun changes between shots.

Continuity
In the scene where after Peter gets his diploma and has a chat with Gwen, he is carrying a backpack on both shoulders. As the scene continues it switches to one shoulder then both several times.

Continuity
During the battle with Green Goblin, when Gwen Stacy is falling through the clock tower, there are many gears and other pieces falling with her. None of these are there when she and Spidey are at the bottom.

Continuity
When Aunt May is talking to Peter about doing the washing, she is holding a sandwich with lots of lettuce leaves sticking out of the top. She passes it to Peter and the next shot shows him holding the sandwich but it has no salad leaves of any sort.

Revealing Mistakes
When Spider-Man looks at the YouTube video his father left him, on the bottom left the video is said to have no dislikes yet there is a grey shading on the 'likes' bar above.
Trivia:
A scene promoting Fox's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' appeared during the end credits of this movie. The end-credits sting featured Jennifer Lawrence reprising the role of Mystique, opposite her 'X-Men: First Class' co-star Lucas Still and 'X-Men' newcomers Evan Jonigkeit and Josh Helman, and depicts her as she shows off her trademark fighting skills against a group of military men.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' was filmed entirely on location in New York.

This is the third time Pharrell Williams is working with Hans Zimmer. Not only did Williams once again provide some tunes for Steve Carrell's Gru in 'Despicable Me 2', he also did some collaboration with Hans Zimmer on the 'Man of Steel' score as a musician as part of the drum orchestra.

While Hans Zimmer has had past experience with both Batman and Superman, this will be his first time crafting a score for the web-slinging wall-crawler.

Marc Webb had a two-picture contract with Twentieth Century Fox, which he partially fulfilled by directing (500) Days of Summer. The second feature would have conflicted with his schedule for directing this film. To be released from that obligation long enough to shoot this film, Webb had to agree to extend that contract to three pictures. It is currently unknown if he will be able to direct the 3rd and 4th films in the series.

Shailene Woodley was cast and filmed scenes as Mary Jane Watson before the role was cut from the film.

Jane Levy was considered for the role of Mary Jane Watson.

In August 2011, eleven months before the release of The Amazing Spider-Man, Sony announced the release date for this sequel.

On September 28, 2012, it was confirmed that Andrew Garfield will reprise his role as Spider-Man, while Marc Webb has been confirmed to return to direct this sequel.

On October 12, 2012, Shailene Woodley was confirmed to play Mary Jane Watson.

On November 1, 2012, it was reported that Jamie Foxx is in the talks of playing the main villain. It was later confirmed that the next Spider-Man villain will be Electro. On December 3, 2012, Jamie Foxx officially landed the role of Electro.

Dane DeHaan, Alden Ehrenreich, Brady Corbet, Eddie Redmayne, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth and Boyd Holbrook were considered to play Harry Osborn. Dane DeHaan was officially cast as Harry on December 3, 2012.

Jamie Foxx stated that Electro will not be wearing his classic costume from the comics. Instead, his looks will be based on the Ultimate version. On April 16, 2013, the first look at Jamie Foxx as Electro was revealed.

Jamie Foxx and Chris Cooper are the first Oscar winners to portray Spider-Man villains, but Chris Cooper may not be appearing as the Green Goblin in this sequel.

Chris Cooper previously appeared in Seabiscuit, a film already referenced in the immediately before this one, which featured Tobey Maguire and Elizabeth Banks, who appeared in the previous film series.

Director Marc Webb chose to shoot on 35mm film instead of the digital Red Epic cameras the original was shot with. While it is relatively common for franchise films to shoot on film and transition to digital for sequels as digital cinematography and 3D has become more commonplace (e.g. Resident Evil: Afterlife, Skyfall, Iron Man 3, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) this is a rare example of a franchise switching to film after being shot on digital.

Rochester, NY, location for the filming of the car chase is the home of Kodak. The movie is being filmed using Kodak film.
