The Amazing Spider-Man (07/03/2012) - Page 39
The score was the worst part of the movie, but the rest I loved it. I really would like to know who the fuck thought some of those songs were right for a Spiderman flick. I get that the approach was to do something different from to set this one apart from the previous saga, but I needed some Spidey tunes!!!
Really? I thought that was one of the few parts that they got right. Sure there could have been more of it, but you can tell what they were going for and it largely worked for me.
"It won’t be green and yellow. It will be a different color. They (the producers) want something for the future. They want to have it more grounded and not as comic bookie, so it won’t be green and yellow. They want to try new things, like a liquid rubber and things like that, and there are all these bolts and stuff in my arms when they are hanging me upside down and trying to figure out what happen. How did he become this way? So, it will be some new stuff.
"In the script, this villain is the first time it’s be written well. Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb both commented on how great the script is, so it should be an exciting time."
Why I would never....
"Marc Webb and all those guys who are doing it are smart," Foxx says. "They know that it has to make sense in 2013 so the suit is really slick. It's not green. It's actually black."
Foxx goes on to explain a bit about the origins of his Max Dillon [although he appears to accidentally call the character "Matt Dillon" as you can see in the video below].
"What you'll see is that, for his whole life, no one is talking to him," Foxx continues. "People have stolen his ideas at the big company. He's a nobody. At a certain point, Spider-Man bumps into him and says, 'You're my guy. You're my ears and eyes on the street.' Then he says his name, [Max] and no one has ever said [Max] Dillon's name. He goes, 'Wow' and, when Spider-Man leaves, he sort of thinks that, "I am Spider-Man's partner!" He's cutting out Spider-Man's face and pasting it on all his boards... Everything goes bad with his mom. She doesn't remember his birthday. He has something tragic happen and, when it turns on, he lights it up."
