Director Marc Webb forms a supergroup to craft music for his upcoming movie "The Amazing Spider-Man 2". He posted a picture of Hans Zimmer hitting studio with Pharrell Williams, Johnny Marr, Michael Einziger and Dave Stewart for the music project.
Zimmer has a history of working with the four musicians. He collaborated with Williams to create music for "Despicable Me", worked with Marr to score "Inception", joined forces with Einziger in "The Lone Ranger" score, and teamed up with Stewart in "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted".
"Marc and I were talking about Spider-Man," Grammy-winning composer Zimmer says of how the group came together, "And as the word got out, so many of our friends and musicians started calling us up, wanting to be a part of it, because they love Spider-Man."
"That was the thing that united all of us - the great love for Spider-Man. With all of these hugely talented people wanting to join us, it was Marc who said, 'Why not start a band?' Marc and I have had a great start jamming with everybody, and we still have a few surprises up our sleeve."
The follow-up to 2012's "The Amazing Spider-Man" will be released in the U.S. on May 2, 2014. Its trailer will be shown before Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" that is slated to come out across the country on December 13.
In the next film, Peter Parker will continue to adjust to his crime fighting life as Spider-Man and his relationship with his high school sweetheart Gwen Stacy while dealing with new enemies, the return of his old friend Harry Osborn, and discovering more about his past.
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are back as Parker and Stacy respectively. Dane DeHaan will play the young Osborn, Paul Giamatti is tapped to portray The Rhino, and Jamie Foxx will take on the main baddie Electro.
