Sony Pictures are making a habit of using their faux Daily Bugle Tumblr page as a promotional tool for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Producing ‘articles’ on a weekly basis now, the Bugle’s latest offering looks at the problems surrounding Oscorp’s future and Norman Osborn’s seemingly ailing health. Norman, of course, is to be played by Chris Cooper in Marc Webb’s upcoming Spidey-sequel.

Norman Osborn, CEO of OsCorp Industries, not seen in public or heard from in months, remains in seclusion amidst growing speculation about the severity of his condition.

The mounting concern for Osborn’s health, combined with OsCorp Industries’ recent problems with Dr. Curt Connors, has generated increased focus on the readiness of the company’s heir apparent, Harry Osborn, to assume control of the multinational conglomerate.

When asked for an official statement about Harry’s role with the company, the standard company PR line is “Harry is currently studying in Europe.”

After being shown photographic evidence of Harry partying on the Riviera with a bevy of barely-clad supermodels, OsCorp’s spokesman Donald Menken said, “A snapshot cannot capture a life. Harry is a brilliant young man with a very bright future. He may be a little green, but the future is bright.”

Did they just use the 'Harry is a little green' line? Really? How very sutble.

The official synopsis for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 reads:

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, Peter Parker finds that a great conflict lies ahead.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realise that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

Released worldwide on 2nd May, 2014, we lucky UK folks get THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 on 18th April, 2014.
