“I’m looking forward to The Amazing Spider-Man. [Webb] is a great guy, he invited me on set, and I did a little bit of writing for that movie, for one of the high school scenes, so I’m excited.”
The Freaks & Geeks creator is a welcome helping hand for the high school setting he has mastered, but it’s presumptuous to assume we’ll glean any of his influence on a 2+ hour final product. The Amazing Spider-Man, also starring Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field and Denis Leary opens everywhere on July 3, 2012.
