Marc Webb is being sneaky.

In a seemingly inconsequential tweet Monday, the Amazing Spider-Man 2 director made a joke about almost wanting to shoot the film in black and white —  until he realized that B.J. Novak’s book trailer beat him to the punch. Webb also left a little parenthetical clue about Novak’s as-yet-unannounced Spider-Man 2 role: “B.J. Novak (A. Smythe).”
