After Spider Man 4 failed to get off the ground in 2010, Sony opted for a reboot instead – The Amazing Spider-Man. Although some fans of Sam Raimi’s trilogy initially scoffed at the idea, most of them eventually came around. The film ended up being both a commercial ($750 million at the box office) and modest critical success.

While promoting the upcoming release of the Blu-ray/DVD, director Marc Webb and his visual effects team recently revealed that there are Easter eggs all throughout the film that hint at what we can expect from The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Courtesy of Entertainment News Online, Senior Visual Effects Supervisor Jerome Chen said:

“There’s a scene where Gwen is in the Oscorp lab giving a tour to a series of students and there could be Easter eggs in there. There’s also an Easter egg at the end of the movie.”

What the eggs might reveal about the second film is unclear. Could they expose which villains might appear in the upcoming sequel?

Unfortunately, other members of the crew aren’t giving much else away. Additional Animation Supervisor David Schaub said of the final sequence:

“In the very last shot of the film where [Spider-Man] is swinging, [he] gets himself shot out of the crane and he’s flying down past the George Washington Bridge and he strikes a pose. There’s an Easter egg – but I can’t tell you any more than that – [that's] for something to come.”

It’s a rather clever marketing strategy by the filmmakers and Sony to use the DVD and Blu-ray release of The Amazing Spider-Man to generate excitement and anticipation for the sequel. The Easter egg hunt will give fans more incentive to buy the DVD/Blu-ray, which will hopefully entice them to watch the sequel, too.

During the interview, Webb also shed some light on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and on what moviegoers should expect from the next installment:

“The last movie, Peter’s sort of discovering his powers and he’s getting gradually better. Peter, in the next movie, is going to be a virtuoso. Spider-Man, from the outset, is a pro. He’s an expert, and he’s having a blast, and he is just electrifying in terms of his abilities as Spider-Man. That’s going to be really fun. I’m really looking forward to a lot of those sequences.”

So it appears that Spider-Man fans will be in for another thrilling film. As far as the eggs go, it looks like we’ll have to wait until Friday to find out what they reveal.

You can help unravel the mystery by getting your copy of The Amazing Spider-Man on Blu-ray or DVD on November 9th. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into theaters on May 2nd, 2014.

  1. maby the croc or lizard thing is chamelion, the tentacle things are doc oc, i didnt see no yellow pants but you guys did so thats shocker, thunder looking cloud means electro, then i saw how to moon had a dracula cape collar thing so that means mysterio, the rhino means rhino (suprise), the birds (at night) mean vulture, and we’re left with (former) kravin the hunter and sandy, so possibly sandman or kravin could come though the latter is unlikely (by wich i mean kravin) so by default and process of elimination we have sandman and that all adds up to the sinister six and you could be right about the suction cups luis because mysterio has tried to play spiderman before if not its probably his shoes but in spider man 3 they were plain (the shot where tobi was emtying his shoes) ps ezra a love Dr. jonathon crane as much as you but he IS DC and in the marvel DC crossovers im pretty sure scarecrow has never met spidey and there *out of breath* you have it

  2. plus the guy said there could be an egg at the end if he wasnt refering to post credit mabye it was the shoes

  3. If it is indeed The Sinister Six as the villains in TASM2, it could be any of the 9 or so groupings that have existed in the Marvel Universe(but most likely one of the following):

    1. Doctor Octopus, Vulture, Electro, Kraven, Mysterio, and Sandman
    2. Doctor Octopus, Vulture, Electro, Mysterio, Sandman and Rhino
    3. Doctor Octopus, Electro, Sandman, Chameleon, Mysterio and Rhino

  4. Yeah, like someone said, bird like that don’t usually come out at night. Pointing towards The Vulture, maybe? And the George Washington Bridge is where Gwen Stacy died in the comics.

  5. i dont think Gwen will die just yet ya that is where the goblin killed her but it is definately an easter egg

  6. theres dr octipus in the pic next to spidy

    • next to his head

  7. When he flies past the George Washington Bridge, he has a spider sense that tells him that there is danger. And that were Gwen dies in the comics.
