Marvel News Round-Up: Amazing Spider-Man 2 Updates


Whether it’s Fox, Sony or the Marvel stable themselves, here are the world-wide mutterings!

Ol’ Web-head’s next adventure will cue up the Sinister Six, and will introduce Norman Osborn for bigger & badder things in No. 3!

The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s Jamie Foxx, who will be unveiled as super-villain Max Dillon / Electro, recently confirmed that the film will introduce the Sinister Six into the storyline – traditionally the ensemble with Doc Ock, Electro, Vulture, Mysterio, Kraven & Sandman, but featuring comic-book turns by Gog and Hob-Goblin too. “Yes, they actually talked about it, the Sinister Six,” said Foxx. “So fingers crossed, because when you think about it, electricity never dies; it just goes to a different place.”

The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘ s Norman Osborn, played by Chris Cooper, revealed that his Green Goblin alter-ego doesn’t have a major role in the first sequel, but is instead being positioned for more The Amazing Spider-Man 3; “This is an introduction to Norman Osborn,” Cooper said. ”And, apparently, this leads to better things in The Amazing Spider-Man 3.” Osborn is mentioned in the first film, as being of poor health, and funding Dr. Curt Connor’s (The Lizard) research to slow his own medical condition. “I think it’s fair to say that he’s on his last legs,” confirmed Cooper, “and I don’t know if I can say anything more.”
