Is The Budget For The Amazing Spider-Man Actually $220 Million?!

An actor working on the movie has let slip the budget for the upcoming 3D reboot, and it's a hell of a lot more than the previously reported figure of a lowly $80 million...

Last January, The Hollywood Reporter ran a story claiming that the then untitled Spider-Man reboot would have a lowly budget of $80 Million. Not exactly a lot for a 3D superhero movie, so many assumed it was a mistake or early figure. Well, it looks like the sceptics were right! Check out what actor Richard Norton had to say while talking to Moviehole.

"Unfortunately I can’t say much right now because I’m not allowed to. However I can say it was mostly stunt work. I doubt you’ll even recognise me. I play a SWAT guy but it’s a small part. I was on-set for four weeks and the experience was just phenomenal...it’s a $220 million budget movie!"

"Vic Armstrong was the second unit director and it was great working with him. Andy Armstrong, his brother, was the stunt coordinator and an old friend. Andy’s the one who brought me onboard so for all those reasons and more it was a lot of fun"


While an actor with a fairly small role wouldn't usually be privy to such information, he's clearly heard it from somewhere! And considering he's close friends with The Amazing Spider-Man's stunt coordinator, I'd say his claim could be seen as being pretty reliable!

With an all star cast that includes Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Denis Leary as Captain George Stacy, Rhys Ifans as Curt Connors, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben and Sally Field as Aunt May, The Amazing Spider-Man is set to be released in 3D on July 3, 2012!
