Its been known for some time that Marc Webb's Spider-man re-boot would be shot in 3D. Now Engadget report that the movie is being shot with 3ality rigs and Red Epic cameras, and also that they have already begun to be used on the Spiderman's sets. These cameras are the same types Peter Jackson will use filming the The Hobbit.
