If you've been following development of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 then you'll probably have guessed this already due to the number of characters - and more specifically villains - that are set to feature, but director Marc Webb has described the upcoming solo sequel as "huge", as well as "the most ambitious" Spider-Man movie to date.

"It's huge," Webb tells Total Film. "We're pushing the levels of effects, the level of action and the emotional capacity of this kid. It's an aggressive step forward. We throw around the term 'operatic' because of the spectacle and the theatre involved, which is pretty epic. There are enormous sets and great set-pieces. But really it's a very intimate song – this relationship between Peter and Gwen is very delicate and beautiful."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for release on April 18th 2014 in the UK and May 2nd 2014 in North America with a cast that includes Andrew Garfield, »
