Composer Hans Zimmer and director Marc Webb have formed a supergroup to help them score The Amazing Spider-Man sequel.

Pharrell Williams recently revealed he is working with Zimmer on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and now it has been revealed that Johnny Marr, Michael Einziger and Dave Stewart will help create music for the film.

A statement from Zimmer, reads, "Marc and I were talking about Spider-Man, and, as the word got out, so many of our friends and musicians started calling us up, wanting to be a part of it, because they love Spider-Man.

"With all of these hugely talented people wanting to join us, it was Marc who said, 'Why not start a band?' Marc and I have had a great start jamming with everybody, and we still have a few surprises up our sleeve."

Zimmer previously teamed up with Williams for the Man of Steel blockbuster, while former The Smiths star Marr was among the musicians Zimmer collaborated with on the soundtrack for Inception.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, is set to hit theatres in 2014.
