nah, they'll use CGI to cut out the background enough to disguise all this. I think it's still set in NY 'cuz if we look at the early part of the video sequence (previously posted on TMZ), we see a car marked "NYPD".

Really? There are many reasons that fanboys won't like the re-boot, but to think it's because it's being shot in Hollywood is just dumb. The footage you showed from the train fight scene in Spider-Man 2 was shot in Chicago but no one was up in arms about that. I think your team is trying to hard to be cool with the comic book crowd but doesn't really get it. Thanks for trying though.

Erm yeah... the report isn't entirely accruate, the film is already going against the comic book as did the other previous films with Toby Mcguire.

The films aren't owned by MARVEL they are owned by Warner Brothers, that is why the Spiderman films SUCK!!

Iron Man and HULK are films owned by MARVEL, they stick to the comic books.

Yo Jason...Sony/Columbia is distributing the film...also Marvel studios DOES own Spider-man. And to say Hulk sticks to the comic books is just plain insulting....

they need to make the movies edgier and darker.

sony owns the rights to spider-man movies only not cartoons or comics or attractions. Warner bros. owns nothing marvel related. Disney owns marvel and spider-man is a marvel character but spidey was licensed to sony columbia long before disney purchased marvel get your facts straight.

This was filmed in downtown LA, I live here, I was just out taking pictures when we noticed they were filming something, they woudn't let us near so we went around and I heard "ACTION" and that's when I started filming. The HD quality looks better, I have it on my FB page and it's like 2-3 minutes long. A few minutes later, they asked us to leave..

Irrelevant. The other Spiderman films were shot in Downtown L.A. as well. Spiderman swings through the Old Bank District at 4th and Main. That's the big joke that LA plays on the world... most of these scenes are shot here and made to seem like NYC.
