Sony boss confirms what The Amazing Spider-Man 2 sets up
Light spoilers, as Sony Pictures' chief reveals where The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is going to position things...
We can't imagine that there's a spoiler in this story that you won't have come across before, but on the off chance, please be advised that we're going to briefly touch on where The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to leave the Spider-Man franchise.
Right then. It was revealed a little while ago that Sony was not only pressing ahead with The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4, but also a series of spin-offs. In particular, one of those spin-offs was for the Sinister Six, and Sony Pictures boss Amy Pascal has confirmed to EW that "at the tail end of this movie [she's on about The Amazing Spider-Man 2] we set up some of the other characters that will probably end up being in the Sinister Six. We're going forward on all fronts".
Electro - as played by Jamie Foxx - is the main villain of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and it's already been confirmed by director Marc Webb that Paul Giamatti's The Rhino only has a brief role in the new movie. Green Goblin, now under the stewardship of Dane DeHaan, has also been revealed. But are there more packed into the film somewhere?
We'll find out next month: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due in UK cinemas on April 18th.
