“Spider-Man” YouTube video shows Web head in action


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: I don’t envy filmmakers trying to shoot a blockbuster in the age of cell phone cameras, Flip HD cams and YouTube. It’s virtually impossible to keep your production under wraps, as set photos and videos shot by overenthusiastic fane race across the Web.

Or, in the case of this morning’s video, swing across the Internet by a web.

Someone watching an “Amazing Spider-Man” stuntman swing across a Manhattan bridge has posted a video on YouTube, giving us a mediocre view of old Web head in costume and in action. No word on whether that’s Andrew Garfield in the suit, though it’s likely just a stunt guy taking the risk.

And how does it look? Sloppy. But it will be fixed in post, no doubt.

If you want to see what Spidey might look like before he swings into theaters next summer, check below. If you can wait, Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” – a reboot of the beloved Marvel superhero – will be in theaters on July 3, 2012.
