Andrew Garfield returns as Peter Parker in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which introduces a host of familiar canon characters including Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), Electro (Jamie Foxx) and the Rhino (Paul Giamatti).
Digital Spy will be bringing you updates live from the panel in Hall H, where Garfield, DeHaan, Foxx and Webb will be on hand to answer fan questions.
02:22And that's a wrap on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in Hall H!
02:18What's Garfield's biggest wish for Spider-Man? "I'd like to see him with The Avengers." He knows he's not meant to say that, but he plainly really, really, really wants it to happen.
02:13Webb says that Paul Giamatti's Rhino is only in one or two scenes, to establish "a fun tone", and the "god-like" Electro is very much the main villain. Electro can also zap into power sockets.
02:11"We grabbed from all the different comics," Webb says. "There are parts of the canon that we feel obligated to, and parts that we deviate from." He does say that he's a big fan of the Ultimate Spider-Man series.
02:10Foxx's Max is a character who has always been powerless and "a nobody", and when he finally gets power it drives him in the wrong direction. He initially worships Spider-Man, because he treats him with respect in a way that no-one else has, but that obsession turns dark once he becomes Electro.
02:07Spider-Man and Harry are childhood friends, DeHaan confirms, and Harry is subsequently sent off to boarding school. He's cut himself off from his childhood life, thanks largely to "a complicated relationship with his father", and he has to reconcile his relationship with Peter.
02:07"Life is well tough, high school is probably the worst part of it," Garfield tells a fan who's struggling in school. "Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. And screw Chemistry, man. Who needs Chemistry?"
02:05Now a man dressed as Superman is asking a question. This is pretty much without a question the most fun (and most costume-y) panel so far.
02:04Garfield is being incredibly, incredibly sweet with the fans who are asking questions, reassuring the ones who are nervous. He clearly feels a real connection both with the con and with fans of Spider-Man. In other words: swoon.
02:02Garfield does acknowledge "it wouldn't make sense if, in the next movie, I was suddenly with a black guy." Jamie Foxx smirks beside him: "I'm a good cuddler."
02:01A fan says that as a gay Asian-American, Garfield's comments about the possibility of Spider-Man being bisexual meant a lot to him. Garfield thanks him for his vulnerability, then says: "Spider-Man stands for everybody – black, white, Asian, gay, straight, lesbian, bisexual."
02:00"Tobey Maguire was a sex machine in my eyes," Garfield says, in response to a fan dissing Maguire's manliness. "He will always be Spider-Man and you can't take that away from me!" He then offers, in a sultry voice, to meet the fan at the back of the hall afterwards. Cue mass screaming and fainting.
01:59DeHaan is very plainly wary about saying too much about his take on Harry Osborn.
01:58Aww. Garfield breaks off halfway through a sentence to grin and express how happy he is to be back at Comic-Con.
01:57How does Peter and Gwen's relationship evolve in the sequel? "Intimacy issues abound," Garfield promises. "I think we all know how difficult it is to be in any kind of relationship, but when one half of the pair is Spider-Man, it's kind of impossible."
01:57And now Andrew Garfield himself is here, apologising profusely for being late!
01:55"You're Spider-Man, and I love that, but I love Peter Parker more," Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy says mournfully, suggesting that the sequel may see Spider-Man embracing his powers just a little too much.
01:54"You know what it is I love about being Spider-Man? Everything!" an elated Spidey says in voiceover. Hmmm. We suspect that this elation won't last.
01:53It's footage time! The movie just wrapped three weeks ago, so this is rough footage with some storyboards and green screens. Still, it's looking pretty exciting.
01:51Webb says that his priority with the first movie was to establish a new universe and retell the Spider-Man origin story, but says he now feels "incredibly liberated" by being able to delve into the world more.
01:50Jamie Foxx is talking about Electro's motivations now. "What we wanted to accomplish was to have him be betrayed by three things - love, family, and his work." His venom is borne out of the fact that even his own mother forgets his birthday.
01:48Spider-Man's making a speedy exit now, still star-struck by Jamie Foxx. It's unclear whether he'll be replaced by Andrew Garfield. We're still not entirely sure we didn't dream some of this - it feels very much like the kind of dream we would have.
01:47Marc Webb addresses Spider-Man as Andrew. "Who's Andrew? I thought Eduardo Saverin played me?" Spidey replies. The layers of meta!
01:46What does Spider-Man wish for most? "A day off."
01:44"Why do you choose this life of helping people?" Spider-Man is asked. But Spider-Man's too busy being star-struck by Jamie Foxx to respond. This is all incredibly meta and incredibly funny.
01:44Emma Stone couldn't make it, but she has sent along a taped message. And now Jamie Foxx is on-stage! But we're finding it hard to focus on any of this, because we're trying to work out whether Garfield is actually going to do the entire panel in character.
Andrew Garfield at Comic-Con 2013
01:41Garfield's name label literally says "Spider-Man". He says he comes to Comic-Con every year because it's the only place where he feels normal.
01:40YES! Andrew Garfield is here, in full Spidey suit. At least, we're assuming it's him.
01:38Marc Webb is first up on stage, followed swiftly by Dane DeHaan. We're told "Spider-Man will be here in a minute".
01:33It's the final panel of the day, and the Spidey gang are due on stage sometime within the next ten minutes.
