It's obviously unlikely that these viral Daily Bugle articles will have too big of an impact on the future of the cinematic universe that Sony are building around The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, but the fact that this iteration of Adrian Toomes is an Oscorp employee could go a big way in explaining why exactly his Vulture wings were spotted alongside Doctor Octopus' arms. If these villains and their devices are all connected, it makes sense that we'll see them all come together as The Sinister Six. What do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below!


In an unexpected setback, Oscorp Industries failed to secure a contract for the development of a flying suit with the United States military.  Sources say  the international conglomerate had been so confident of landing the contract they had already hired a congratulatory skywriting message over New York City that read: “Oscorp soars to success!”

Government sources hinted that the contract intended for military aerial reconnaissance and infiltration landed with a Los Angeles-based conglomerate with offices in Manhattan. Oscorp spokesman, Donald Menken, had no comment.

The losing bid repudiates two decades worth of research in electromagnetic anti-gravity conducted by Oscorp robotics division engineer, Dr. Adrian Toomes. When asked what this development meant for Toomes, Menken simply rolled his eyes and replied “Really? Why are you even asking me? No comment.”


Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Chris Cooper, Paul Giamatti, Colm Feore, Sally Field, and Chris Zylka, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to be released in the UK on 18th April and in the US on May 2nd.

sKeemAn - 4/4/2014, 12:02 PM
I'm confused. Its gotta be Vulture right?
JoeMomma29 - 4/4/2014, 12:03 PM
It is Vulture.
Pasto - 4/4/2014, 12:06 PM
Hey, where's Yonny?

Pasto - 4/4/2014, 12:07 PM
Yonny, a special someone wants to say hello.

TheBaroness89 - 4/4/2014, 12:16 PM
I have to admit I really really want to see Spider-Man vs The Sinister Six on the big screen. I want that more than Thanos vs the Avengers. Obviously not as much as Justice League vs Darkseid.
Pasto - 4/4/2014, 12:17 PM
Alright, this made me laugh.

EpitomeofAwesome - 4/4/2014, 12:20 PM
I know this is a Sony thread, so I’m going to keep this brief, but I want to know who has sided with The Dead Rabbit Gang, and who has sided with Pasto in this little mole-hill that’s slowly turning into a mountain. I, for one, am loyal to Pasto ‘till the day I die.
Pasto - 4/4/2014, 12:20 PM
Question: What is she faking?

Pasto - 4/4/2014, 12:21 PM
......I've got to stop googling these gifs.....
sKeemAn - 4/4/2014, 12:22 PM
Oh my is there gang violence on cbm. What has the world come to?
CorndogBurglar - 4/4/2014, 12:24 PM
@ CHarlie294

What are you talking about? Adrian Toomes IS the Vulture in the comics...
Dotanuki - 4/4/2014, 12:26 PM
Are they trying to make Oscorp the source of all of Spider-Man's villains? Electro, Lizard and Green Goblin are definitely from Oscorp. Now the Vulture and presumably Dr. Octopus (based on the harness shown in the trailer). The Rhino is a Russian thug but we don't know the origin of his suit. Spider-Man himself is the result of Oscorp.

Come on now.

@corndog

It previously said Colm Feore, not Adrian Toomes
sKeemAn - 4/4/2014, 12:30 PM
@dotanuki

Exactly the reason I have extremely low expectations from this film. I bet they make Venom from Oscorp as well.

"Government sources hinted that the contract intended for military aerial reconnaissance and infiltration landed with a Los Angeles-based conglomerate with offices in Manhattan."


Stark Industries Anyone??????

They might wanna think about
shutting Oscorp down.
UltimateHunt - 4/4/2014, 12:35 PM
But a sinister movie, I still dont get how, how will they explained spiderman is not there. F it, what can it be about. I like the entire group team in a bad side prospective, but without spidey?
CherryBomb - 4/4/2014, 12:35 PM
@Pasto
I see you're in love with Kaya Scodelario a.k.a the future X-23

;)
CherryBomb - 4/4/2014, 12:36 PM
@UltimateHunt

I think it would be great if they did a Sinister Six movie and have Spidey as their "villain".
Appearing only in his costume.
Pasto - 4/4/2014, 12:41 PM
Cherry
Don't push it.
DanteMcFarlane - 4/4/2014, 1:07 PM
That's Blackie Drago (Ultimate), not Adrian Toomes :P
Melkaticox - 4/4/2014, 1:12 PM
I hope he has a black and red suit. Color differentiation for each villain would be great.

Lizard - Green (implying he'll be in The Sinister Six...I'm not sure what to think)
Electro - Blue
Proto-Goblin? - ...Uhhh...a different tone of green?
Green Goblin - Well I really hope he uses that damn purple cloak.
Vulture - Black and red
Scorpion - ... ... ...
Mysterio - ... ... ...Ugh.

Ok, I just noticed how many green villain Spidey has. What the hell.
Melkaticox - 4/4/2014, 1:13 PM
Sigh, anyway.

Optimus83 - 4/4/2014, 1:17 PM
Cool. ...Vulture
Calder027 - 4/4/2014, 1:28 PM
@jparr2
Hahaha... you aren't the only one who thought that... good ol' Tony being a thorn in Normand's side...
bythepowercosmic - 4/4/2014, 1:38 PM
I believe that's the exact same origin as both the Green Goblin and The Lizard lmao
Interestein - 4/4/2014, 1:47 PM
TASM3 will be Spidey in the symbiote fighting Vulture, Doc Ock, and Black Cat as an anti-hero.
dio - 4/4/2014, 1:56 PM
Seriously Gus.
EthanSmith - 4/4/2014, 3:26 PM
They're saying that the wings were denied and Adrian Toomes is pissed. Colm Feore is Donald Menken. Adrian Toomes becomes Vulture.
MightyZeus - 4/4/2014, 6:39 PM
I knew he was going to be playing that role. It's his facial feature's and his appearance that gives it away.
thewolfx - 4/4/2014, 8:22 PM
They love fcking up the villians looks and origins
BubSnikt - 4/4/2014, 9:06 PM
You're from Oscorp. Im from Oscorp. Everyone's from Oscorp!
Jtneagle - 4/4/2014, 10:10 PM
Who else could they get for Toomes.... Colm Feore is PERFECT That's like casting JK Simmons as Norman Osborn, when he clearly looks JUST like J Jonah Jameson. They wasted such a good looking role on 'Donald Menken' who no one will care about.
mgeoff88 - 4/4/2014, 11:37 PM
"In other related news, Oscorp Industries is being shut down due to the growing mountain of evidence that indicates major criminals such as The Lizard, Electro, Rhino, Green Goblin, Vulture, Doc Ock, and Venom, are all connected to Oscorp Industries in some way."

"We tried to get a comment from former Oscorp employee, Dr. Adrian Toomes about this shocking development, but his feathers seemed ruffled about the company being shut down and declined to comment."

;P

@Cherry Bomb - totally. that's what i want to see too. like Spider-Man would only appear maybe three times, first two times, just show up and beat up crooks, say annoying,quippy things, and disappear. he wouldn't even be a character, more like a really annoying force of nature.

but the movie would totally be from the point of view of the villains, and not just Sinister Six, but a bunch of other C and D listers, and how they make it thru every day. how they hang out, what they gossip about, what they complain about, stupid harebrained schemes they come up with and just stuff like that. u could take a Tarantino type approach to it, and it would be hilarious.

just the last fight with Spider-Man would be the only time you'd see any real character in Spider-Man.
