Tobey - Spider-Man 2 'bigger and better'


Tobey Maguire says Spider-Man 2 (2004) will be bigger and better than the first film.

He flew into Tokyo to give fans a sneak preview of the film which is not yet finished.

Fans were shown 12 minutes of footage of the 110 million movie, reports Radio One.

Tobey reckons they've got it right this time round - and he made sure to introduce himself to the fans in case any didn't recognise him:

"Hello, I'm Tobey. I've just come from LA today to bring you guys some very special footage of Spider-Man 2. This is something nobody has seen before. As a matter of fact, I haven't seen it yet.

"
But I think it's a better story, and we've all learnt how to do this stuff a lot better - the special effects, the action, so all that stuff's gonna be better, but it comes from a grounded, rooted place in character and story, so I'm very excited about it and I hope you guys enjoy it."
