By now we can confirm that there will be three villains in the film: Electro (Jamie Foxx), Russian thug turned evil mechsuit Rhino (Paul Giamatti), and finally, an official confirmation that the new Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) will be suiting up as the Green Goblin. However, with the road to a Spidey vs. the Sinister Six movie clearly before us, this ASM2 trailer didn’t waist time introducing us to even more villains.
Did you spot this at the 1:14 mark?
That’s right! Those Oscorp harnesses belong to none other than Doctor Octopus and Vulture, respectively! Both have been members of the Sinister Six in the comic books – and both have actually been hinted at by prior Amazing Spider-Man 2 marketing:
- Vulture - It’s since been pulled, but for awhile there actor Colm Feore’s IMDb page had him listed as playing “Adrian Toomes” in ASM2. That’s the alter-ego of the Vulture. Feore was also seen in a teaser image as being part of the Ravencroft Institute for criminals. Is he an inmate or an Oscorp plant?
- Doc Ock - In the ASM2 Comic-Con teaser trailer, Jamie Foxx’s Electro is gaining his powers through an Oscorp procedure, having a dialogue within an unseen figure he refers to as “Doc.” Could it be Otto Octavius behind these new gene experiments? Wouldn’t be surprising.
That’s potentially a full Sinister Six lineup right there – Lizard, Electro, Rhino, Goblin, Vulture, Doc Ock – would that be YOUR chosen roster? Should this storyline end in Amazing Spider-Man 3 and give rise to that Venom/Carnage saga staring in Amazing Spider-Man 4? What do YOU want to see?
Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be in theaters on May 2nd, 2014.
