â€œHow could you feel anything but good?â€ Webb told The Hollywood Reporter at the Annual VES Awards this week. â€œIt was really wonderful; I mean, I enjoyed the events in particular because it was very affirming. Weâ€™ve been working in our secret laboratory for so long that itâ€™s nice to get it out.â€
The initial trailer premiered last summer, but it had mixed reactions from Spider-Man fans. And Webb has to live up to the other Spider-Man series that was directed by Sam Raimi.
One of the main focus was towards the main villain for the movieâ€”The Lizard. He was played by Dylan Baker in the Sam Raimiâ€™s Spider-Man films, but never transformed into his monstrous form.
In the reinvented Spider-Man film, actor Rhys Ifans plays the Spider-Manâ€™s main adversary for the movie. And Webb had to figure out a way to present The Lizard rather than just a man-sized lizard with a lab coat.
â€œWe spend a lot of time thinking about the biology of a lizard, and how his muscles work, and thereâ€™s an entire staff of people dedicated to making him look lifelike,â€ he said. â€œIt is an extraordinary task, and very, very difficult. It takes a lot of time, which a lot of people in this room can attest to.â€
In the final trailer, he felt it would be better to show more of the relationship between Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy.
â€œThis time we wanted to show Peter and Gwen a little bit more,â€ said Webb. â€œTo get to know more of the characterization, and a lot of the visual effects stuff that weâ€™ve been working on, just to display the attitude of the film that weâ€™re trying to create.â€
