More villains to be revealed for The Amazing Spider-Man 2


The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is quickly approaching, yet the entire cast still hasn’t been revealed. We do know that Paul Giamatti is set to play The Rhino and Jamie Foxx will portray Electro; this is consistent with the film adaptations’ tendency to introduce at least one new villain every movie. Apparently, there’s more.

Over at IGN,  Giamatti says that The Rhino and Electro aren’t the only villains that will take on the friendly neighborhood web slinger. Giamatti goes on to say:

“(Rhino is just) one of several bad guys in the movie. I believe there’s a lot of stage-setting for the next film. There are several villains in this movie, and some of them are more foreground and important. Jamie Foxx is and stuff. A couple of us are more hanging around the background because I think there will be a bigger deal.”

It looks like the filmmakers are really building something complex, although they might want to be careful about adding too many characters; if Spider Man 3 is any indication, it might not be such a great idea. Still, incorporating the Sinister 6 in the film series would be an interesting prospect. Imagine that!

The Amazing Spider Man 2 is scheduled to be released in 2D and 3D on May 2, 2014.
