'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Photos Tease the Sinister Six!Nick Romano |
Regarding 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' director Marc Webb told ScreenCrush back during Comic-Con that, while many of us may think we know what'll go down in the Spidey sequel, we'll definitely be surprised. His words are still ringing in our minds as the next batch of photos from the film has dropped to tease one of those buzzed-about rumors: the Sinister Six.
The Sinister Six, consisting of a handful of Spidey's nemeses, has been a talking point for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' thanks to the appearances of Jamie Foxx's Electro, Paul Giamatti's Rhino, Chris Cooper's Norman Osborn and the mysterious casting of Colm Feore. (For more info on that, click HERE.) Introducing the villainous team could well be the over-arching plan for the film series, but as far as 'Spider-Man 2' goes, Webb seems to be all about Electro.
If you'll remember, the director said during the film's panel for Comic-Con that Foxx's villain will be the primary focus of the film, with Rhino inserted to establish a fun tone. Although there still is Felicity Jones' casting to consider -- she's been long-thought to play Black Cat-- as we reiterate Webb's point, we'll have to wait to be surprised.
