"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" hit into Comic-Con 2013 on Friday with stars Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan joining director Marc Webb in Hall H for some friendly neighborhood rabble-rousing. (Co-stars Emma Stone, Felicity Jones and Chris Cooper were not scheduled to appear.)
The last time this team came to San Diego for the annual geek event was in 2011, when Garfield -- who plays the title webslinger -- dressed as Spider-Man and fooled many attendees into thinking he was just another fan before revealing himself to the surprised crowd. Speculation in the lead up to "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" panel was that Garfield would try to top that viral event by swinging onto the stage. He didn't, but the star did wear the Spider-Man suit and participate in a portion of the panel as if he were actually Peter Parker.
"The Amazing Spider-Man 2," which Sony is set to release on May 2, 2014, wasn't the only big feature the studio brought into Hall H. Other Sony films teased included the upcoming "RoboCop" remake and "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2."
