spidey2 The Amazing Spider Man 2: Marc Webb Tweets New Set Photo Featuring the F.B.I.

Spoilers are often a film director’s arch-nemesis, but in the case of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the film’s teases are coming straight from the source: director Marc Webb.

Webb has been awfully busy on Twitter this week. He recently tweeted a cryptic photo of what looks to be part of a character’s mask (it’s anyone’s guess who at this point), and now the director has posted another ambiguous pic on his Twitter page to keep fans talking.

Check out the tweet below:

And here’s the photo he uploaded:

The badges clearly indicate that the plot of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will involve the federal authorities, but the real question is how they’ll factor into the film.

The most likely answer is that part of the story follows a nationwide investigation involving one of the villains. We already know that Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti will star as Electro and Rhino, respectively, and both characters are more than capable of causing the kind of damage worthy of calling out the FBI (at least, they are in the comic books).

The more interesting angle, however, could be that the feds are after Spidey himself. It’s heavily expected that Daily Bugle editor (and boss to Peter Parker) J. Jonah Jameson will make an appearance in the film, and he’s known for turning the public against the web-slinging hero. Webb seems determined to bust the Spider-Man universe wide open with this sequel, and the fact that he’s always at odds with law enforcement (as established in the first film) is almost sure to be a continuing thread.

This is not to imply that the friendly neighborhood superhero will return to the “darker” side he embraced in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3. Rather, if he’s truly the target of the film’s FBI presence, it’s probably because he has been framed or otherwise implicated in someone else’s crimes. Of course, this is all pure speculation at this point. Feel free to do some speculation of your own.

How do you think the FBI will factor into the plot of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Screen Rant readers? Let us know in the comments.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into theaters on May 2nd, 2014.

  1. Definitely go for it, stick to the comics.

  2. This movie can’t get made fast enough. I hope it lives up to the hype.

  3. Maybe they are still going to leave in that his parents were spies! just a thought

  4. They should make Spiderman 4 from Raimi,would be a better Movie !

    • Yeah, because he did such a good job with Spider-Man 3, right?

      • The producers ruined it. He was under contract and had to do it.

        • No, Tobey Maguire’s abominable performance, along with EVERYTHING else in the movie, ruined it.

  5. A shame they are not S.H.I.E.L.D agents…

    • I KNOW, RIGHT?!?!?!

      • Lol I hear you guys, actually that just gave me a thought I remember in the comics it was later revealed that Peter’s parents were S.H.I.E.L.D agents I think, I always felt that if they could tie amazing spider-man universe into the marvel universe thatd be a pretty good way.

  6. take your time with this film…no rushing but i wish mysterio or shocker was casted instead of *yawwwwwwwwwn “rhino”. hopefully rhino will make me shut my pie hole.

    • I too have a pie hole

  7. Only someone ignorant would not understand why the following scene is considered one of “Star Trek’s” best:

    • Oops wrong thread

  8. LOL! They can’t use S.H.I.E.L.D, that’s who they wanted to use but can’t.

  9. the FBI agents look like Michael Cane and Josh Brolin

    • Lol! I guess I can see that lol

  10. I’m really excited for this movie almost more than I am for any other movie, I am on screen rant so much looking for news on this movie that’s how excited I am about it? I’m with FILTHpig up top in the sense that it can’t get made fast enough, I want more set photos Webb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. I loved the 1st one & can’t wait to see the sequel, who cares about all of the naysayers. Rather see this than a crappy Ant-Man movie lol.

  12. Electro is a good choice. I question whether the actor was the right one (Electro was a white guy in the comics. They should not change this, either way, black for white or white for black. That is not what the original author of the story wrote the character as). Not biased, just like to stick to the original concepts. having said that, I have to real reason to think the actor Jamie Foxx would have any problem doing the part. Rhino do0es not impress me, nor would Kraven, Vulture, Hobgoblin, Venom, or Carnage. I would like to see Mysterio and Scorpion, though. Morbius would not be too bad, but he might be a bit too intense for the kiddies.

    • Rhino could be cool if done right. He can’t carry a movie alone, but with Electro as backup, he can be good. And I believe (not positive) that Electro was black in the ultimate franchise, and when you really look, this takes more from that universe anyway.
