Spider-Man stars have great chemistry

Jul 26 2013, 12:12am CDT | by Bang Movies

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' stars Andrew Garfield and Dane DeHaan have great chemistry.

Director Marc Webb felt it was important that the actor who plays Harry Osborn - best friend to Spider-Man's alter-ego Peter Parker - be able to connect with Garfield on and off screen and he was extremely pleased when they hit it off in real life.

He said: ''Like casting Emma Stone [as Spider-Man's love interest Gwen Stacy], you want to find a chemistry that works between the actors and I think there was a very cool, interesting dynamic that developed between Dane and Andrew. Harry and Peter need to have an ease about them. Our conceit is that they were friends from when they were much younger and in order for that to work, you need a sense that there's a history there and there's a real great depth to their relationship.''

The filmmaker also praised franchise newcomer DeHaan - who will play the role made famous by James Franco in Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man' trilogy - and thinks fans will be extremely impressed with his performance.

He told SuperheroHype.com: ''Dane's a really funny guy; he's a very funny actor and I think people will start to appreciate that. It's also exciting for me to find people who aren't overexposed, like Andrew with the first movie. Dane, I think is somebody that the world is starting to discover just how wonderful an actor he is, how great his look is, how dimensional his performances are.''

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' is set for release in April 2014.
