Here’s a video from the New York location of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, out front of the house that apparently doubles for Peter Parker’s place… and next door, Mary Jane Watson’s place.
So I think we can take it as read that this element of the original strips will be intact. Perhaps they’ll even do that schtick with Aunt May mentioning MJ as a lovematch for Peter before he ever meets her.
And here’s a snap from Ace Showbiz that shows off Emma Stone and Shailene Woodley‘s the ‘handshake moment’ quiet clearly.
I’m sure that costume designer Deborah Lynn Scott and director Marc Webb thought rather hard about the outfits for this moment – there’s a lot of contrasting and comparison to be done, two different characters to be staked out as separate from one another.
Woodley filmed another scene on the porch in which she was seen hitting something with a very big hammer. Andrew Garfield was nowhere to be seen throughout.
