Gotta say i'm disappointed with the choice of villain considering how many more logical choices there are but Webb did such a good job on the first movie i'm going to go on faith that he won't disappoint.

@Strider92: I was hoping for Venom after they announced a Venom film....

I'm actually very excited by this! They can link it to finding a cleaner energy source, have Max Dillion be a technican working on the project and then an accident can occur leading to Max's transformation into Electro and play out a misguided role. This is great news for me as I wanted Electro in the sequel! Is there a better choice for a villain?

@Lvenger: Morbius, Dr Ock, Jackal or Venom would have been much more in keeping with the new franchise in my opinion. Suddenly having someone who can manipulate electricity seems pretty random considering the emphasis they've put on the biological side of this Spider-man universe.

@Strider92: Maybe there going for the whole Lizard thing but he used Electric Eel DNA this time....

This is exciting. I'm glad they went with a lesser known villain and not one previously done.

@Strider92: I feel like Doc Ock would be a bad choice considering that he was in Spiderman 2. But i agree Electro isn't necesarilly the best choice.

Could be interesting to see Electro finally in a Spider-man movie

@Strider92: Morbius would be pandering to the vampire craze which is not something I want to see. Doc Ock's been done before and we don't need to see him again in this trilogy IMO. If Venom was like he is in the Ultimate Universe then that could be interesting but after his performence in Spider-Man 3, I'm not too keen on Venom. Jackal could be good too going down the clone route. But Electro's still not too bad, not if they keep it in tone with the scientific side of these Spider-Man films. And if he looks anything like this:

(couldn't find the blue energy version of this costume)

then I'd be happy.

@Lvenger: Yeah but I wouldn't have gone the Vampire route with Morbius either. Just have him as a bat/human cross-species. Keep the blood drinking completely out of it. Have him be cannibalistic instead.

Posted by Lvenger

@Strider92: I think the cannibalistic road wouldn't make the film viewable by children. Parents certainly wouldn't approve.

Quite nice actually. It could be by far worse.

I LOVE the choice of Electro, and he should of been in the first one, though I hate the actor.

I'm surprised by the choice of Electro, but I'm just glad it's not the Vulture.

I haven't seen enough of Foxx's acting to know if he's a good pick but I think it could work

problem with spiderman villains is the fact that the xmen, spiderman, FF, avengers, ghost rider all exist in seperate movie universes. so if you pick a villain big enough he could also be a baddie for one of the other hero franchises. like Rhino could be a Black Panther bad guy which gives you problems with the avengers and the FF. you also don't want to use doc ock, venom, goblin, hobgoblin, sandman, because they are from that other spiderman movie franchise.

so i think they should use Mysterio as the villain for amazing spiderman 2. you can have him played by brent spinner.

Hmm. Well was not expecting electro, but hey, lizard worked.

Liked the first movie. I have faith the second one will be great. Interested on how they will show Electro.
