INDICE DE GALERIAS
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Spider-Man himself made an appearance at Comic-Con, scaling nearby hotels to swoop into a panel in the San Diego Convention Center’s largest exhibition hall.
Andrew Garfield, who plays the web-slinging superhero in “The Amazing Spider-Man” and its forthcoming sequel, was nowhere in sight. The actor only joined the panel once Spidey left.
Garfield, along with Jamie Foxx, director Marc Webb and the film’s producers, offered convention-goers the first look Friday at footage from “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which is set for release next year.
But first, Spider-Man told the crowd of nearly 6,000 fans that he loves Comic-Con, saying, “It’s the only place where I feel normal.”
He complimented Foxx, who plays the villain Electro in the new film, saying he first noticed him opposite Al Pacino in “Any Given Sunday.”
“I loved ‘Django,’” Spidey said.
The superhero also confessed that he could really use a day off.
“It’s nice to swing, it’s nice to climb, but it all gets to be a little old hat,” he said.
The footage introduced fans to Foxx’s villain, a man who starts out admiring Spider-Man, but eventually seeks to destroy him. Spider-Man befriends the quiet man before an accident transforms him into Electro.
“I wanted Electro to be a serious individual who wants to burn the city down,” Foxx said, “and burn Spider-Man along with it.”
