Amazing Spider-Man 2: Daily Bugle report reveals trouble at OSCORP

tumblr_muo4lvPAiJ1suscsro1_500tumblr_muo4lvPAiJ1suscsro2_500As part of The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s viral campaign, Sony Pictures has created a fictional tumblr account for Marvel’s most infamous newspaper, The Daily Bugle. The tumblr page posted a new report today, giving detailed insight to the current state of OSCORP after the events of the first film.

Despite the assault on Oscorp Tower two weeks ago and the revelation that disgruntled Oscorp employee, Dr. Curt Connors, was responsible for the attack, Oscorp’s stock has climbed four points.

Oscorp spokesman Douglas Menken provided some details from the meeting, including that the construction on the prototype alternative energy power plant, complete with hydroelectric tower, is on schedule for completion within the next year.

Other highlights included a preview of a flight harness for the military and significant advancements in robotics by the head of the engineering division, Spencer Smythe.

Oscorp personnel dismissed questions regarding Norman Osborn’s health and whether the company’s estranged heir apparent, Harry Osborn, is up to the task of running his father’s conglomerate.

Menken stated, “Between the disappearance of Dr. Rajit Ratha, the rogue actions of a very unstable former employee and Norman Osborn’s health concerns, everyone in the media will cry the sky is falling, but just the opposite is true. While everyone else ducks for cover, Oscorp is always reaching for the stars.”

maxresdefaultWhile this may seem like your standard financial business report, there may be a few subtle hints at what to expect from the new film. Spencer Smythe is a well-known Spider-Man villain in the comics. He built the Spider-Slayers for Norman Osborn to hunt down Spider-Man. Since Smythe is the lead in robotics in the Engineering Department at OSCORP they could have him be the main behind Paul Giammati’s Rhino suit.

The news report also mentions that there maybe something wrong with OSCORP’s head-honcho, Norman Osborn. Could this be a hint at the fact that Norman feeling the side-effects to the Goblin Serum? There have been previous reports that there is more than one villain and the production set photos keep hinting at the Sinister Six.

Of course, we won’t know for sure what to expect until The Amazing Spider-Man 2 web-swings into theaters next year.
