In a recent interview with SuperheroHype, director Marc Webb has been talking about the villains in his upcoming THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. It’s already been confirmed that the film will see Rhino, Electro, Green Goblin and possibly Menace. Too many cooks spoil the broth? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Asked about what we can expect to see at the film’s Comic-Con preview, Webb said, “There won’t be any Rhino footage in that footage because there’s too much work to be done there, but listen, Electro is the main villain. Electro to me was somebody I was always curious about, because he’s inherently cinematic. There is something terrifying and God-like about Electro. He is elemental in the way that Poseidon or Zeus is”

The director then added, “You feel a sense of bigness about him. He’s somebody who just his touch has the power of a thousand third rails and will obliterate anybody near him. I think it’s incredible exciting to play with that kind of power. Spider-Man’s greatest weapon is that web, and when he shoots a web at Electro, there’s a current and webs are conductive and that’s going to pose some real issues for Spider-Man…”

The Spidey sequel sees Peter Parker having to juggle high school graduation, his forbidden love for Gwen, and the arrival of several new supervillains.

Andrew Garfield returns as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Sally Field as Aunt May and Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben. New to the part, we have Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn, Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn, Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giamatti as Rhino. There are also unknown roles for Sarah Gadon and Felicity Jones, although Jones has confirmed she’ll be playing a villain with ties to the Green Goblin… hence the Menace rumours.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 is released in the UK on 18th April, 2014.
