Sony Pictures has shown its commitment to Spider-Man by announcing Amazing Spider-Man 3 & 4, as well as plans for Sinister Six and Venom spin-off movies. It also appears as if the dedication to Spider-Man extends throughout the entire Sony organization.
Earlier today, Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb tweeted the photo above, along with the text, “Our animators are more committed than yours - Derek Esparza's super sexy calf.”
On IMDB, Derek Esparza is listed as an animator on the first Amazing Spider-Man movie, and he is listed as a senior character animator on the Amazing Spider-Man 2. We wonder if getting the Spider-Man logo tattooed on his calf was a requirement to get the “senior” label added to his title?
Synopsis: We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on May 2, 2014.
