TASM: Andrew Garfield's Top SPIDER-MAN Villains
Andrew Garfield reveals his favorite Spider-Man villains. Some classic Spidey villains are named but he's not too keen on Kraven the Hunter's threat level, calling him a "campy lion hunter".
For those of you without a work-around to MTV international viewing restrictions, Garfield spoke with MTV about who could possibly be the villain for Spider-Man 2. Of course he didn't tell MTV anything but he was willing to discuss his personal favorite Spider-Man nemesi---
"I love all of them. I like Elektro, he's one of the ones I'm very into," said Garfield. "I really like the [Green] Goblin, obviously, and I love Doc Ock. I think I like Doc Ock especially because of what Alfred Molina did [with the character in 'Spider-Man 2']. I don't know; he made that so memorable and kind of profound, somehow."
MTV asked Garfield about a classic villain he didn't name, Kraven the Hunter, and this is what Garfield had to say---
"Oh man. Kraven, that campy lion hunter," he laughed when the villain was brought up, before finally confessing, "I like Kraven. I like Kraven a lot."
So who do you guys want in the sequel? Green Goblin seems like a logical choice with the inclusion of Oscorp in the film but maybe Sony and co. will make a left turn and give us something unexpected?

It is the fourth Columbia Pictures film that portrays Spider-Man in film and is a reboot of the film series that stars the superhero. The cast includes Garfield as Peter Parker and his alter ego, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors. The film will portray Parker as his super powers are evolving in high school.
The film's development began simultaneously with Sony announcing the cancellation of Spider-Man 4. Opting for a reboot with the same production team rather than another sequel, the studio announced a July 2012 release date for what was now titled The Amazing Spider-Man. James Vanderbilt was hired to write the script while Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves helped fine-tune the script. Filming started in December 2010 in Los Angeles before moving to New York City with the help of RED Epic camera. The film entered post-production in April 2011.
Sony Entertainment has focused its marketing campaign with a promotional website with released images, 2 theatrical trailers, a prologue screening in certain cities and a video game tie-in being developed by Beenox among other products. The Amazing Spider-Man is scheduled to be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on July 3, 2012. A sequel of the film is being planned for release in 2014 with James Vanderbilt hired to again write the screenplay.
