More Pics and Video from the Set of the Spider-Man Reboot

To borrow a line from Field of Dreams, "If you build it, they will come." In this case, the "it" is a movie set for director Marc Webb's Spider-Man reboot and the "they" are amateur photographers. Once again, new "spy" pics and video from the L.A. set of the movie have made their way online. These new materials seem to have been captured during the same freeway chase sequence captured previously in both photos and video.
While the quality of the new photos and video are not the greatest, they're worth checking out because there are a few pretty funny shots of Spider-Man—whether title star Andrew Garfield, a stuntman or both is unclear—sporting an unusual look, and the video shows ol' web-head doing some actual web-swinging (rather than CG-swinging, as was commonly used in Sam Raimi's trilogy of movies). The video also reveals just how huge the production is, as the photographer pans over the massive set revealing dozens of trucks and tents.
Spider-Man (working title) was written by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent and is based on the classic Marvel Comics character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The cast includes Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Denis Leary as Capt. George Stacy and Chris Zylka as Flash Thompson.
