on the set of amazing spiderman 2

There has been no shortage of news and rumors coming from the set of The Amazing Spider-man 2.  Director Marc Webb has been tweeting images left and right.  On top of that, casting news continues to spill over the internet PLUS people grabbing footage during production is giving movie geeks tons to read and speculate.

All that said, does anyone else think Mr. Webb and crew are planning on a Sinister 6 movie?  I can’t be the only one thinking this.  While the original S6 included Dr. Octopus, Sandman, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio and Electro, the super villain team did rotate out other members including Lizard and Rhino. We know Lizard is not dead but instead locked up as Dr. Connors.  That’s not to say someone could get him some Lizard serum and he could be back kicking ass.

We know for a fact that Max Dillon/Electro (played by Jamie Fox) is in this movie along with Aleksei Mikhailovich Sytsevich/Rhino (played by Paul Giamatti).  So you team them up with Lizard and you already got three members of the Sinister 6. Marc Webb has tweeted an image of a large nosed guy in a suit entering a Ravencroft room of some sort.  With the size of this guys noise, it’s easy to speculate that he could be Adrian Toomes/Vulture.

Could be a bit of a stretch but still…could be.  Some recent images that Mr. Webb tweeted show a pair of elephant or mastodon tusks golden and a set of saber-tooth tiger teeth.  Could he be dropping hints that Kraven The Hunter will show up? Odds are probably not.  These are probably extravagant items in the OsCorp building but still…it’s a possibility. So with all the teases, one could speculate that Electro, Rhino, Vulture, Lizard and Kraven could be the start of a Sinister 6 movement.

They just need one more person to complete the roster.  Many have commented that perhaps the guy at the end of the first Amazing Spider-man wasn’t Norman Osborn but instead Mysterio.  It even could have been Dr. Otto Octavius who in comics past and in The Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon had worked for OsCorp.

All my theories are just that…theories.  I’m probably looking into this too much.  I’m sure that is what Marc Webb intended to do by tweeting so many photos.  Truth is the studio probably heard so many fanboys cry over the fact that there were to many villains in Spider-man 3.  BUT the recent success The Avengers had with multiple heroes on the screen might be saying something else.

I think as long as the story is good and the action is great, a multi-hero or multi-villain movie can work. Another reason my theory could be way off is due to the Gwen Stacy arc.  Since Shailene Woodley has been cast to play Mary Jane, many think the Death of Gwen Stacy story line will develop as Green Goblin will kill Gwen and MJ will be there for Peter.

It’s really hard to say which story they will go with.  I really enjoyed the first movie and hope the second one turns out just as great if not better.  Guess we’ll see in 2014 when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is scheduled to hit theaters sometime early May.
