Marc Webb says 3D will let us “feel how Spider-Man feels” when he’s swinging

The teaser trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man featured a pretty cool ‘point of view’ sequence of Spider-Man swinging through New York, which was something different as we didn’t get a scene like that in Raimi’s movies.

In a new interview director Marc Webb says they’re experimenting with 3D in the hope people “feel how Spider-Man feels” when they see that scene (and similar ones) on the big screen next year.

From Total Film:

“There’s an experiential component to 3D that’s really fantastic,” he added, “and we’re experimenting with generating that point of view so you feel how Spider-Man feels when he’s jumping over these buildings… We made a conscious effort to do those effects practically and we had an incredible stunt team. We built this whole rig – hundreds of feet long – in Harlem, and we actually swung a man through traffic down the street.”

Webb also admits he was “a little sceptical at first” about directing the reboot as he felt “the presence of those other movies. But then I was like, ‘How could I walk away from this? What an opportunity!’ What better cinematic character is there than Spidey!”

The Amazing Spider-Man, set for release July 3, 2012, stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans as the Lizard, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben, Sally Field and Aunt May, and Irrfan Khan as the “Proto-Goblin,” a test subject of Norman Osborn’s experimentations.
