THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2: Miles Warren - 'The Jackal' - In Latest Daily Bugle Viral

"Cloning Class At ESU?" asks the headline of the latest article to appear on The Daily Bugle viral site. That's right, it appears as if the man responsible for "The Clone Saga" is coming to Sony's Spider-Man Cinematic Universe as Professor Miles Warren reveals his interest in clones...

It’s either a sign of the times or a sign of the apocalypse...

Manhattan’s Empire State University announced a new class for the 2014 fall semester in advanced biogenetics that will actually require the successful cloning of a living creature. Introduction to Live Cloning, taught by noted geneticist Professor Miles Warren, is the first class of its kind anywhere in the world.

When asked about the ethical aspects of teaching a class on how to clone living cells, Warren said, "Our responsibility is to educate our students and prepare them for life. For those who study genetics or biology, cloning will be a fact of life."

The ethical aspects of cloning are irrelevant to Warren, who added, “We are cloning single-celled amoeba. Maybe one day we’ll work our way up to mice. There is no ethical dilemma. Save your red flag for when I start cloning co-eds..."







In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

STARRING:

Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man
Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy
Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson
Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon/Electro
Sally Fields as Aunt May

RELEASE DATE: May 2nd, 2014.

JDUKE25 - 1/9/2014, 4:33 PM

SPIDERCIDE SPIN-OFF CONFIRMED!!!!

marvel72 - 1/9/2014, 4:36 PM
pointless,most of these characters used in these viral marketing will never see life on the big screen.
JordanKing - 1/9/2014, 4:38 PM
Shocking Twist: Financed by OSCORP Industries.
Mrcool210 - 1/9/2014, 4:41 PM

theowl - 1/9/2014, 4:41 PM

Like or not I loved the clone saga... yeah, I said it.. its what really made Spider-man one of my best heroes and to introduce the Jackal would be amazing to me.

Come at me bros.
CaptainAmerica31 - 1/9/2014, 4:55 PM
Eh this viral marketing was great when they were hinting at villains we were going to see on the big screen( Ock, shocker) now it's just rambling
MrMartinMarvel - 1/9/2014, 4:58 PM
Can someone remind me what the point of these things is?
CaptainObvious - 1/9/2014, 5:01 PM
This isn't how you do viral marketing.
Praetorian - 1/9/2014, 5:01 PM
Hah! Cloning co eds, good reference.
QuestiontheAnswer - 1/9/2014, 5:11 PM
These virals are better than the movie.
VIRILEMAN - 1/9/2014, 5:11 PM
Yeah, these are pretty meh. Give us something more substantial. The viral marketing for this film could be much better.
superherofan21 - 1/9/2014, 5:12 PM
Please let this mean a Scarlet Spider movie...
VIRILEMAN - 1/9/2014, 5:13 PM
I mean, you know something is wrong when we have Spider-Man news and I almost don't even bother clicking on it.
VIRILEMAN - 1/9/2014, 5:13 PM
@superherofan

I'd rather a Spider-Man 2099 film.
Praetorian - 1/9/2014, 5:15 PM
I had an awesome idea for a Jackal spiderman flick with Mysterio, Kraven the Hunter and the Chameleon as backup villains
MarvelSquadie - 1/9/2014, 5:22 PM
gotta find an actor that almost looks like Andrew Garfield! lol
typicalfanboy - 1/9/2014, 5:27 PM
Jean-Ralphio Saperstein aka ben schwartz from parks and rec looks a lot like garfield.
typicalfanboy - 1/9/2014, 5:28 PM
i mean the cat, not andrew.
NovaCorpsFan - 1/9/2014, 5:30 PM
Remeber when all the Spideys came together in the last two episodes of TAS? When Ben Reilly's explaining the clone saga, the cartoon Spidey says, "This is starting to sound like a bad comic book plot!"
JJJameson - 1/9/2014, 5:31 PM
I love the viral marketing for this. It doesn't need to appeal to anyone else but hardcore Spider-Man fans, and as one myself, I actually wish The Daily Bugle was much more than a tumblr page, but a full fledged website with daily updates.

I just love the attention to detail and how they are building Spider-Man's movieverse. Jackal is one of my favorite Spider-Man villains and it would be a pretty [frick]ing awesome and messed up way of having Gwen back if she indeed dies in this one in TASM3. Jackal, Green Goblin and Venom would be a hell of a trio for TASM 3.
cipher - 1/9/2014, 5:40 PM
Nova- That's how I felt when my doppelganger was around.
crdl2nslv - 1/9/2014, 5:43 PM
@CoolantTech, I'm right there with you. The 90's clone saga was my introduction to comic books. I still like the Scarlet Spider better. If Sony really wants to do some spin offs, this is a great thing to introduce. I'd be pysched to see a "Lost Years" movie, then see Ben take over the Spider-mantle for one film and have Garfield return as Spider-Man in a final film.
JJJameson - 1/9/2014, 5:45 PM
After the Sinister Six, I'd love to see the Spider-Island saga brought to the big screen:








Interestein - 1/9/2014, 5:45 PM
Hell yeah, I'd like a reworked Clone Saga.
Splenda - 1/9/2014, 6:01 PM
so the whole advertising campaign involves name dropping characters from the comics to hype people up. but only nerds like us even recognize these names so…what's the point
Splenda - 1/9/2014, 6:02 PM
Clone Saga is one of the worst spider-man stories ever printed, why would anyone want a movie of it?
DrunkenNukem - 1/9/2014, 6:04 PM
From where Eduardo Saverin its going to make time to tapping Gwen in the sequel
Jollem - 1/9/2014, 6:26 PM
the viral marketing is awesome for fans. why would you bitch about it?
Inhuman - 1/9/2014, 6:33 PM
So how many villains are there now with the whole viral campaign thing and the movies combined? lol
Inhuman - 1/9/2014, 6:36 PM
I think this whole viral market scheme is pointless because we won't see any of these guys on the big screen. If Spider-Man existed in the MCU then I could see many of these villains come to life on the screen but sadly I don't get how they will show all of these villains while working only with Spider-Man rights. This gets me pissed off because Marvel and SONY should have come together before Amazing was made that way theres a layout and plan for Spidey to be part of the MCU and they won't have to cram all these villains in 1 universe
Marvel1997 - 1/9/2014, 6:44 PM
Is anyone else finding all of this kind of...forced? I mean from things such as the shocker all the way up to this..How long does The Amazing Spiderman 2 take place after the first one? Does anyone knw? From what I heard its a couple months.. And for all of this shit to just start happening ""All of a sudden"" in New York is sort of odd.. Just kind of seems out of place and forced Imo.. Why didn't we hear one mention of anything else going on in TASM 1 besides lizard? Just seems like this all cans out of no where and it's kind of a bother
Jollem - 1/9/2014, 6:47 PM
fun fact: spider-man has a lot of villains

you can wiki it, i guess
MrCameron - 1/9/2014, 7:18 PM
CapFan79 - 1/9/2014, 7:27 PM
If Marvel Studios was doing this viral stuff you'd all cream in your panties!
CaptainObvious - 1/9/2014, 7:32 PM
"I love the viral marketing for this. It doesn't need to appeal to anyone else but hardcore Spider-Man fans"

You just pointed out everything that is wrong with this marketing campaign.

The worst way to market your product is to only appeal to a small group of people. Comic fans are only a small fraction of the people who will see this movie. The viral marketing needs to get the general audience excited for this movie.

Just throwing out random names only a few people are familiar with is not the way to do that. Viral marketing can be really cool if done right. If The Dark Knight could use viral marketing correctly, this movie can, too.
