Studio Meddling Responsible for Amazing Spider-Man 2’s Narrative Problems?


Amazing Spider-Man 2 did well in the box office, and we personally enjoyed watching the film. However, it can’t be denied that it has received a lot of criticism due to its rather disjointed narrative, which many consider as being responsible for destroying the flow of the story. During an interview with The Daily Beast, star Andrew Garfield sort of acknowledged and addressed the criticisms, and has pointed to parts of the original script being changed by way too many people:

“I read a lot of the reactions from people and I had to stop because I could feel I was getting away from how I actually felt about it,” says Garfield. “For me, I read the script that Alex [Kurtzman] and Bob [Orci] wrote, and I genuinely loved it.”

“There was this thread running through it. I think what happened was, through the pre-production, production, and post-production, when you have something that works as a whole, and then you start removing portions of it… then the thread is broken.”

“It’s hard to go with the flow of the story. Certain people at the studio had problems with certain parts of it, and ultimately the studio is the final say in those movies because they’re the tentpoles, so you have to answer to those people.”

However, Garfield made a note to clarify that even though he preferred the script in its original incarnation, the experience in making the film is not disappointing:

“I got to work in deep scenes that you don’t usually see in comic book movies… a lot of which was taken out, and which we’d explored more. It’s interesting to do a post-mortem [but] I’m proud of a lot of it and had a good time.”
