The Amazing Spider-man - Director Marc Webb Upset Film Fans Can No Longer Sit On Summer Park Bench

The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb has been left heartbroken after learning a park bench that played a pivotal role in his moviemaking debut is no longer available for film fans to sit on and look out over Los Angeles.

Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt sat on the bench in Downtown L.A. park Angels Knoll during their awkward courtship in Webb's cult romantic comedy (500) Days of Summer, and ever since that film's release in 2009, fans have flocked to take a seat and admire the view.

But, due to city cuts, the park has now been closed off to the public and there are plans to remove the bench altogether, according to local reports.

Webb tells The Hollywood Reporter, "I don't know enough about civic agencies, and God knows budgets are difficult things to manage, but, let's be honest, maybe there are better things to spend money on (than park benches).

"But, you know what? I'll miss my park bench."
