Here are some of the highlights:
On the first scene in the movie:
"Y'know, if the last movie was [asking whether] Peter Parker can be Spider-Man, this movie is about if Spider-Man can be Peter Parker. At the beginning of the movie, he is extraordinarily capable, he is very good at being Spider-Man. There's a virtuosity there, he's so confident in the midst of total pandemonium that he may, uh, feel a little too confident and other elements of his life may erode because of that... I'll say this, [the theme] has something to do with time and the nature of time and the first shot in the movie... it's a watch... a ticking clock..."
On multiple villains and future sequels:
"Yes, yeah, listen, part of the fundamental concepts, the conceit of the universe that we're making is that it started... in that first movie we tease up, for example, Norman Osborn. He was an entity, he was around but you didn't see him onscreen. That allows you to unfold stories over a longer period of time and so you can create a sort of nuanced and complex world... The Rhino is in the movie for a very short time, because we're sort of teasing out the possibility of something more interesting happening there."
On The Black Cat:
"Hmmm, I don't even know if Black Cat is in the movie..."
On Gwen Stacy's rumored death:
"Amy: How intense it was shooting [Peter and Gwen's] final scene?
Webb: Um... whaddya mean, the last scene in the movie?
Amy: I'm trying to get you to talk about her death.
Webb: Listen... the world we're trying to create is... it's partly obligated to cannon, but you also have to deviate from the cannon occasionally and so the... y'know... Andrew [Garfield] and Emma [Stone] and Peter and Gwen are - I mean, they're something really joyful and wonderful about that relationship and it's a lot of that stuff from the first movie [that] will continue in this second movie... [trails off]."
Webb also said that Jamie Foxx's Electro/Max Dillon and his "god-like" powers would handle the bulk of the villainous duties.
