“There’s no celebration like New Year’s Eve in Times Square,” said Marc Webb, Director of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. “There’s the sense of energy and excitement that you can only get in New York and we certainly felt that energy and excitement as we shot the entire film here. The people of New York City truly embraced our production, and it’s a wonderful feeling to be returning to Times Square to ring in the New Year.”
