The Oakland Press says here that Sam Raimi will shoot scenes for the 2011 sequel in his home state of Michigan. Raimi said: "I'll be looking at Michigan for our second-unit photography on the new 'Spider-Man' film. It was cheaper to shoot in Ohio because the streets we were shooting on had storefronts that looked a little bit more like New York than Detroit did. But if the incentives Michigan has now had been in place, we would have had the money to adapt a set in Detroit."
Here on his twitter account Joe Quesada spoke about his and Brian Michael Bendis' meetings with Kenneth Branagh about the project.
