Were you disappointed with The Amazing Spider-Man 2? You’re not alone. Apparently Andrew Garfield is in a way, too. The film had its moments, but due to the overabundance of main characters, there just wasn’t enough time to flesh them out and make sure each had a compelling arc, so the result is essentially a mishmash of neat CGI tricks and a handful of particularly well acted moments, but nothing to link them all together.
Turns out, there’s a reason for that. According to Garfield, it’s the studio. Apparently The Amazing Spider-Man 2 did have a “thread running through it,” but some folks at Sony insisted that certain parts be removed from the final cut and when that starts happening, it’s tough to keep it all together.
