Although the Spider-Man reboot starring Andrew Garfield will differ in many ways from its unsuccessful predecessor, one thing stays the same: Since the story takes place in New York, they’ve got to shoot in the Big Apple. Photos of Garfield lounging around in Queens appeared online last week, and we just spotted the film crew on 19th and Park. That’s just south of Madison Square Park, which was most recently immortalized thanks to Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski‘s Shake Shack lunches in Something Borrowed.
The thing is, the trailers are so small that Garfield, Emma Stone, and the other stars may not be doing any scenes there. Once Will Smith‘s 1,150-square-foot trailer appears on the park, then we’ll know that the big stars are ready to get to work.
Just like with The Hunger Games trying to hide behind the fake shooting name Artemis, we’re not fooled by the name Fiona’s Tale: We know that it’s the working title for The Amazing Spider-Man. What’s odd, though, is that going to fionastale.com takes you to the movie’s homepage, with a pic of the new Spidey and the release date (July 3, 2012). So, Sony must realize that the subterfuge is useless, yet they obviously still register for locations with that name.
Update! We hit the street and snapped some photos from the shoot!
