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.
