Warning: This movie contains a very slight spoiler from the Amazing Spiderman ending!
The first chapter to 'the Amazing Spiderman' movies was released in cinema's last month. Different people had mixed reactions but the overall reaction was that it was good. The villain of the movie was The Lizard , also known as Curt Connors. The lizard played a good enough role in the movie. His origin was similar to his origin in the comics and he was certainly threatening enough. But who's going to star in the next sequel, rumoured for 2014. At the end of the movie a locked up Curt Connors was visited my a mysterious visitor. I'm assuming that this mystery man is going to be the villain of the next movie but I could be wrong! Here are my thoughts on who the next villain could be.
6. The Rhino
The Rhino is certainly not the man at the end of the movie. The man at the end looked old, skinny and had white hair (which make me think vulture) but it could certainly make sense for Rhino to be part of AS2! The Lizard in the movie was originally a human but was then turned into a monster like lizard after he took some sort of formula. Isn't it possible that a similar formula could be made again or could have been already made and makes the Rhino. This could be a good movie but it it would be too similar to the first movie and each movie should have a different feel. Also the Amazing Spiderman video game had a similar story line so the chances of seeing Rhino isn't very likely but it would be cool.
5. The Vulture
I think the Vulture because the man in the end of the movie (although he had hair) looked old. The Vulture, along with the lizard, has been anticipated for a role in a spiderman movie since all the way back in 2007 when spiderman 3 was released. He was supposed to be in 'Spiderman 4' with Lizard, Carnage and possibly a new villain... the Vultures daughter!!! (that would have been so funny) So we have these facts but would the Vulture actually be good in a Spiderman movie? I think not on his own. Chuck him in with another villain and he might be alright but he's not that much of a threat to Spiderman.
4. Mysterio or Electro
I'v put these two together because there's no real reason why they should be put in the movie apart from being cool. Electro would be a cool villain in the movie but probably wont be very scary or interesting to viewers. Mysterio on the other hand, there's a lot you could do with him. Mysterio is an expert in special effects and stage illusions. Try tell me that wont be absolutely great in a movie. And if the writers kept all of spideys rouges alive for another few movies (preferably six) they could eventually make a sinister six movie.
So what do you think of Mysterio?
3. Green Goblin
The Green Goblin is a very obvious choice obviously because of the famous storyline where Gwen Stacy is tragically killed by the green goblin. Its not confirmed (i dont think) whether there is going to be a third movie but if there is going to be one Norman Osborn is most certainly going to be flying around wearing a green mask in it. Think about it, why on earth would they put Gwen Stacy in a spiderman movie if they weren't planning on chucking her off a bridge. It is possible though that the producers might want to get this story over and done with so they can get onto new things (new love interests) but my thoughts are that since this will be so anticipated they will drag it out in the 3rd movie.
A lot of people are speculating that the mysterious figure at the end was in fact evil Dr. Miles Warren! The Jackal has a connection to both Peter and Gwen so it would make sense for him to be a part of the movie. You might not know an awful lot about the character so let me educate you. Miles was a professor at the school that Gwen Stacy attened. He grew a fondness for her but when Gwen died in the hands of the Green Goblin, Miles blamed Spiderman. Dr. Warren started putting Jackal DNA into his body as part of his experiments. He grew stronger and transformed into the Jackal. He hunted spiderman in an attempt to avenge Gwen. He also had suspicions that peter was spiderman and eventually found out spideys big secret. Him and Norman Osborn then created a more powerfull clone of Peter Parker which escaped. The clone was called Kaine.
The writers could recreate this origin so that it could take place before gwen's death. I think that it would be pretty cool if Jackal didn't turn into Jackal into a later movie but in this one creates Kaine, who would be the movies main villain. So theres no surprise number one on my list is...
So Kaine being number one doesn't mean he is most likely to appear in the movie. It just means he is the villain I would like to see the most. as I said before. Miles Warren could make a more powerful clone of Peter Parker which goes up against Spiderman. He could start off bad, being controlled by Miles Warren maybe, but in the end become good like he did in the comics. He could even have his own spin off 'Scarlet Spider' like he did in the comics.
What do you think?
So Kaine and Jackal are the two villains I want to see in 'The Amazing Spiderman 2' series. Whats yours? And If you liked this blog I will be soon posting a blog on what I think Marvel should do with their Amazing Spiderman franchise in the future.
