We're creeping closer to the release of Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", which will reunite us with Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) as well as introduce us to a plethora of new villains. Sony filled us in on their plans to expand the Spider-Man universe and continue introducing more and more villains, namely the "Sinister Six" and "Venom".
In a recent interview, writer Roberto Orci spoke a bit about these two villain-fronted movies. He talked about the origin of all these characters and said the following:
"Oscorp plays an important part in how our villains get created, obviously, in the first one. So because Peter becoming Spider-Man came out of that, rather than saying, "And then this alien came from space," or whatever, they're doing human-hybrid, weird stuff at Oscorp. That's where Gwen Stacy works anyway as well. So the idea of it representing the good and the bad of science, that it can do great things, but it can also mess you up and do weird things and transform people -- as all science can be used for good or bad. So it's nice to have that organizing principal, but it wasn't like, "We must keep it at Oscorp." It flowed naturally from the story development."
It appears that Max Dillon aka Electro (Jamies Foxx), The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and of course the Green Goblin (Chris Cooper then Dane DeHaan), will also all originate from Oscorp in one way or another. An easy way to keep the story consistent perhaps? Or will fans find this is the lazy way of tying the universe together? Only time will tell but I for one am really excited for the next Spidey installment.
