In a recent interview with The Huffington Post, B.J Novak gives us details about his character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2."I'm in a couple of scenes." Novak stated, "Yeah, I was never told whether or not I could say. I can say that I work at Oscorp. And I am someone from the comic books, someone from the original. So, yeah, I'm somebody. I wouldn't say I'm pivotal, but I'm not an extra, either." Who do you think B.J Novak's character is in the Spidey sequel?







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 greater 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 realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

Is he playing Zachary Quinto?

@Doom

Lol, that was my first thought too :P

Could be Alistaire Smythe? Just my first reaction after reading that, knowing that he's been referenced and such
BatManiac - 12/6/2013, 8:51 AM
"I am someone from the comic books, someone from the original."

When he says the original, I presume he is referring to Raimi's Trilogy. I'm thinking Otto Octavius, maybe?
JJJameson - 12/6/2013, 8:54 AM
He is Miles Warren. Calling it right now.
JJJameson - 12/6/2013, 8:56 AM
WAIT, maybe he is Alistair or Spencer Smythe, both were featured on the Daily Bugle article here:

@Batmaniac

But..he doesn't have the bowl haircut? :P

Didn't think of the original as Raimi's trilogy, makes the most sense though. Could potentially be Otto, could definitely see him appearing in this film if they plan to introduce him in the third as part of the Sinister Six
JoeMomma29 - 12/6/2013, 8:59 AM
It has to be Smythe!
OdinsBeard - 12/6/2013, 9:12 AM
batmaniac@ that's my first thought also. but then i see people are saying he's the young smythe with is a good guess also.

but "the original" has to mean the first trilogy right?
Element36 - 12/6/2013, 9:12 AM
CLEARLY it's Kingpin
Homunculus97 - 12/6/2013, 9:14 AM
He would fit as Otto , definetly hinting to his inevitable going evil plot in the third movie
WhiteBolt - 12/6/2013, 9:15 AM
I think he's Smythe.
LancerEvo - 12/6/2013, 9:15 AM
Hmmm.... Ned Leeds maybe?
jimoakley666 - 12/6/2013, 9:17 AM
Doc Ock?
MrMartinMarvel - 12/6/2013, 9:17 AM
My money's on Stromm!
deadpool0811 - 12/6/2013, 9:21 AM
Jackal
faver - 12/6/2013, 9:22 AM
He might be Alistair Smythe. He looks way too young to be Stromm or Otto. Plus, I'm sure they'd try to get a bigger name for that role.
Nomis - 12/6/2013, 9:24 AM
@ Zauri - If he's Miles Warren/the Jackal...Now that would be Awesome!

If Done right.
deadpool0811 - 12/6/2013, 9:25 AM

MBZ1993 - 12/6/2013, 9:32 AM
i think Smythe or Jackel then movies 5 6 7 is about the cloning saga with taylor kitsch as kaine and liam hemsworth as ben reily
NovaCorpsFan - 12/6/2013, 9:32 AM
He's either Smythe, Morbius, Miles Warren or my theory - Black Cat.
Lemons - 12/6/2013, 9:34 AM
Oh Ryan, always so hipster...
AlexanderLykins - 12/6/2013, 9:35 AM
I'm joining in! Ryan started the fire!
GoldenAge88 - 12/6/2013, 9:36 AM
He is Otto Octavious.
caseykelderman - 12/6/2013, 9:38 AM
He's going to start the Oscorp building on fire by burning his cheese pitta in the microwave...
Lemons - 12/6/2013, 9:40 AM
Joe McCarthy, Richard Nixon, Studebaker, Television, North Korea, South Korea, Marilyn Monroe! RYAN STARTED THE FIRE!
flashygurl - 12/6/2013, 9:40 AM
If he is going to be part of the Sinister Six as opposed to a standalone, of course he isn't a pivotal character.

He is Doc Ock.
thejon93rd - 12/6/2013, 9:41 AM
Eddie Brock possibly? Maybe Dr. Octopus. Probably Smythe though.
EkklesiaRobb - 12/6/2013, 9:41 AM
Edward Brock.
DurtyTalynt - 12/6/2013, 9:41 AM
Yes the Jackal! I bet he already found some spidey dna and is working on clones. Remember in the first one spidey left some blood on the roof when the cops shot at him in the leg. Oscorp could of had some drones following him then and picked up a sample or some crazy shit like that.
Wetboy40 - 12/6/2013, 9:41 AM
I think he could be Otto Octavious/Doc Ock based more on the Ultimate version who is younger then the 616 Doc Ock.
kinetickinney - 12/6/2013, 9:41 AM
He is Morbius, just look at the picture :P
KingPatel - 12/6/2013, 9:45 AM
Chameleon?
driver - 12/6/2013, 9:45 AM
Morbius!
Praetorian - 12/6/2013, 9:46 AM
Morbius, Alistair Smythe, Miles Warren (Jackal), Otto Octavius? Shocker.
rgaona - 12/6/2013, 9:46 AM
I'd say he's Eddie Brock.
