There are a lot of interesting bits and pieces in the below video interview from G4TV, but none more so than director Marc Webb's answer to which villain we might see in the planned sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man. While he refused to directly answer the question for fear of creating too much of a stir, Webb revealed that the Green Goblin, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio are his top three villains. So, what are the odds one of them turns up in the upcoming sequel?! If the embedded video below doesn't work, click HERE.

poster looks really cool to me.
Sanderman - 4/28/2012, 11:25 AM
i wouldnt mind seeing any of those villians in the sequel. maybe not green goblin since he's already been in one.
great poster btw
DoctorSnide - 4/28/2012, 11:28 AM
Be nice for Venom to get his fair shake. The Green Goblin....eh... I just think this whole Spiderman reboot thing is too soon. 2016 or 17 would have been a good time to do it.
Mrcool210 - 4/28/2012, 11:29 AM
I LOVE THE POSTER
NerdyGeek - 4/28/2012, 11:30 AM
So it won't be surprising if Green Goblin is the villain TASM 2.
Spyder3355 - 4/28/2012, 11:30 AM
kraven would have worked well as a secondary villian to the lizard. a big game hunter trying to catch the ultimate game. then switches his aim to spiderman later in the movie. good scenes involving kraven hunting the lizard, spider man fighting them both off. mysterio would be really nice if done correctly though
Zarog - 4/28/2012, 11:31 AM
Mysterio could be.......well cool, but he's never a very good villain without some kind of supporting cast. I wouldn't mind them doing a trilogy based off of Adam Troy Castro's' Sinister Six trilogy. That would show off a lot of villains for Spidey and could make great scripts for films.
nailbiter111 - 4/28/2012, 11:31 AM
mysterio would be the bomb.
Jollem - 4/28/2012, 11:32 AM
i would like to see those three in his movies. Kraven's Last Hunt!
SpideyMark - 4/28/2012, 11:32 AM
I don't mind if the next Villain is Mysterio or The Green Gobblin,but Kraven...Please NO!I don't like him I think he is not a good villain for me.And another villains could be Electro or Shocker for the sequel too.
PaulRom - 4/28/2012, 11:34 AM
I never was big on Mysterio to be honest. Kraven, maybe (would've worked well with Lizard). Would love to see Goblin again, but with a costume akin to the comic version this time.
SpideyMark - 4/28/2012, 11:36 AM
Bigger version of the poster guys!:http://img443.imageshack.us/img443/1565/addda.jpg

I never knew spiderman could fly

Best Spidey villain is still Venom.
Zarog - 4/28/2012, 11:39 AM
@wombraider Of course it's going to be in it's own universe. Spidey's rights are owned by Sony.
CaptainObvious - 4/28/2012, 11:43 AM
Mysterios? Yes. Kraven? No. The only time Kraven was cool was Kraven's Last Hunt. Unless they make him like that, I don't want to see him on big screen.
CaptainObvious - 4/28/2012, 11:43 AM
*Mysterio
TonyChu - 4/28/2012, 11:45 AM
It would have been nice to have Kraven in this new Spidey reboot and have him hunting the Lizard as a prize.
CrimsonDynamo - 4/28/2012, 11:48 AM
Poster looks like an unused cover for one of the last 2 Activision Spidey games... all the recent ones do in fact...
Way too soon for a reboot... but I really want this to do well. Should have released this mid-June, after its first 2 weeks in July, tickets sales are gonna drop significantly when Batman opens...
TonyChu - 4/28/2012, 11:49 AM
I think Shocker would make a pretty cool side villain, maybe a villain Spidey have to take on while facing the main villain.
AlexDeLarge87 - 4/28/2012, 11:49 AM
Osborn needs to be in the next film thats a fact. But from those choices i would choose Mysterio.
My choices Hobgoblin, Morbius, Electro, Chameleon, Shocker,
elessarundomiel2382 - 4/28/2012, 11:51 AM
Mysterio would be a hard villain for Spidey as he would have similar powers to Loki. And Peter would have to use his brains to beat him.
monstalova - 4/28/2012, 11:51 AM
Kraven is great. Not sure how it will translate to film? Mysterio not a big fan... Please someone put RHINO in a spider-man movie!
TonyChu - 4/28/2012, 11:51 AM
@ CrimsonDynamo That depends on how good TASM really is. I do think that its going to do good but I think they should had gone with a late May or early June release date, so they don't have to worry about that. Thus giving all comic book films a good chance at the box office.
scarecrow007 - 4/28/2012, 11:52 AM
Shit Villains! No Venom or Carnage!
headlopper - 4/28/2012, 11:52 AM
Meh.

1. Electro
2. Venom
3. The Daily Bugle and JJJ before BND believe it or not.
headlopper - 4/28/2012, 11:54 AM
Jameson and the Bugle were as troublesome for Spidey as some of his worst enemies.

Spider Slayer anyone?
AlexDeLarge87 - 4/28/2012, 11:54 AM
Osborn sides with another villain. Thats i wanna see in the next film.
Plus another costume! :)
MidNightWind - 4/28/2012, 11:58 AM
Is that the score of the TASM playing in the background during the marc webb interview?
CaptainAmerica31 - 4/28/2012, 12:00 PM
I hope he saves GG for the 3rd installment it seems right
AlexDeLarge87 - 4/28/2012, 12:01 PM
headlopper@ Robot Master and spider slayers would be awesome! That would give Osborn a reason to be in the next film! He fires Mendel Stromm or steals his invention or something and then Stromm starts to terrorize him.
Somehow Spidey gets middle of all that shit and has to OBVIOUSLY destroy Stromm´s plans.
Equivocal - 4/28/2012, 12:01 PM
@headlopper:

I totally agree with you on JJJ was great before BND... pretty much EVERYTHING before bnd, I'd like to see Kraven tho.
TrueRedBlue - 4/28/2012, 12:02 PM
Great villains. I hope to see Mysterio on the big screen some day. Can't wait!
JDUKE25 - 4/28/2012, 12:07 PM
Love Gobbie and Mysterio. Kraven is pretty cool too.
Devastator335 - 4/28/2012, 12:20 PM
Cool interview! Way to go Marc!
SpiderFan35 - 4/28/2012, 12:21 PM
Mysterio would be cool but it is clear that the Ultimate universe is a major influence on Webb so it could end up being this, and then the fans will be raging all over again.

AutobotCommander84 - 4/28/2012, 12:24 PM
@ZangetzuBLK I'm hoping it is. James Horner is one of my favorite composers next to Hans Zimmer, Jerry Goldsmith, Steve Jablonsky, and Brian Tyler.
TonyChu - 4/28/2012, 12:26 PM
@ SuspenseSmith I thought it was the other way in the comics and Chameleon wanted revenge for Kravens death.
JatevinM - 4/28/2012, 12:38 PM
I really hope he chooses Kraven and we can see Clive Owen play him.
Cosmic1 - 4/28/2012, 12:42 PM
It would be nice to see the black cat worked into one of these scripts.
