Alex Kurtzman says Amazing Spider-Man 2 will answer first films questions

One of the main gripes about The Amazing Spider-Man , was the way in which Marc Webb’s film went to great pains to ask questions about the mysterious disappearance of Peter’s parents, only to drop them again without supplying any answers.

However, it seems that said questions will be investigated in full in round two, with screenwriter Alex Kurtzman explaining how those issues will resonate in the sequel.

“It’s interesting,” says Kurtzman, “because the first movie asks all these questions and what I loved about it in so many ways is that it didn’t answer them. Part of what we were drawn to and intrigued by was wanting to know the answers to a lot of those questions.

“The villains emerge from a lot of unanswered questions at the end of that movie and none of them are random at all, they are all tied together by a theme, an idea, and I think they come from our curiosity about what was going on in the life of Peter Parker and his parents.”

The last thing we discovered about the pair was that Richard Parker’s research prompted he and his wife to flee the city abruptly, but the details of that remain blurry. If we were to guess, we’d suggest that Oscorp and Norman Osborn will be heavily involved…

Directed by Webb and co-starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will open in the UK on 18 April 2014.
