We've got a couple of very interesting bits of Spidey related loveliness for you today. First off -- as I'm sure you've gathered from the image above -- we can 100% confirm that Colm Feore is actually playing Adrian Toomes aka The Vulture in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And that's not all -- apparently he will join forces with Rhino, Electro and Green Goblin to form the first four members of The Sinister Six, setting them up for the threequel. Who the other two will be is unknown, but it's always possible The Lizard could return as one of them. It also seems that we can forget all that stuff about Norman Osborn not taking up the Green Goblin mantel in the movie! Chris Cooper was spotted on set as Goblin (head in place;) battling Spider-Man, and we're told they'll likely be duking it out in the movie's climax, no doubt leading to the death of Miss Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). What do you guys make of this huge news? Sound off below.

4 villains in one movie!
Rhysno1 - 6/9/2013, 11:45 AM
Wow this film is so cluttered with villains! Really not feeling it
janitra - 6/9/2013, 11:46 AM
He does look like Vulture though
Reasonnnn - 6/9/2013, 11:46 AM
MARVEL. STUDIOS. MARVEL. STUDIOS.

Niuhll - 6/9/2013, 11:46 AM
I assumed Vulture from the thumbnail on main.




I guess it was the beak...
PaulRom - 6/9/2013, 11:47 AM
Sounds awesome. I really hope they properly balance each villain though.
iZinDiaN - 6/9/2013, 11:47 AM
I'm loving this movie already. I just hope Webb is able to handle all the villains though.
SCOURGE - 6/9/2013, 11:48 AM
I really hate this idea.
TheAbaryMan369 - 6/9/2013, 11:48 AM
Oh God.
Rhino...
Vulture...
Goblin...
Electro...
Plus Harry and MJ being introduced. This is bad...
GLprime2814 - 6/9/2013, 11:48 AM
Remember what happened to that one movie that had more than 2 villain ie batman and robin.
Tony93 - 6/9/2013, 11:48 AM
wow....
well they probly will join in the 3rd one.. maybe he doesnt become the vulture and is just toomes?
Niuhll - 6/9/2013, 11:49 AM
Very excited about them setting up the sinister six! If they can pull it off it'll be incredible!

Who are people thinking the other two will be?
MrMartinMarvel - 6/9/2013, 11:49 AM
They're really cramming a lot into this aren't they?
Dragonpiece - 6/9/2013, 11:50 AM
And so we have a our fourth villain dear lord...
LucasMend - 6/9/2013, 11:50 AM
wtf, sony has surely learned a lesson after spider-man 3.
autobot - 6/9/2013, 11:51 AM
Yeah I'm with iZinDiaN in this one :D
MrCBM56 - 6/9/2013, 11:51 AM
This movie will own! Watch and see
highflyer - 6/9/2013, 11:52 AM
I don't think he'll become the vulture in the movie.
Tony93 - 6/9/2013, 11:52 AM
webb didnt give me any hopes that he can make a good movie with lots of characters in the first one..
MrMartinMarvel - 6/9/2013, 11:52 AM
How about we throw in the Clone Saga while we're at it?
TheGreatone0207 - 6/9/2013, 11:53 AM
THe problem is that Adrian Toomes, Harry Osborn, and Rhino should have been introduced as minor characters in the first film.
JoeMomma29 - 6/9/2013, 11:54 AM
Yeah way to much in one movie!!!!
TayDee - 6/9/2013, 11:54 AM
Quit the whole too many characters bullshit, TDKR had wayyy more, and you all loved it for some reason.
Comedian666 - 6/9/2013, 11:54 AM
They can do it. Most of the villains are tech-related and would have some kind of tie to Oscorp. They don't need to have huge fights with every villain and create some huge character arc for each one. X-Men did fine with lots of villains (well, all except the 3rd one) so as long as thy figure out how to balance it out it should be fine.
RorMachine - 6/9/2013, 11:55 AM
I don't know for certain if he'll actually be flying around fighting Spidey in this film, but he'd definitely Tooms..so it's likely that the end will set up Vulture at the very least.
MrCBM56 - 6/9/2013, 11:55 AM
People complaining of too many villians?!

Captain america 2 has

Winter solider
Arnim Zola
Crossbones
Beatrice the leaper
Jasper Sitwell
And Alexander pierce (most likely red skull)

But yet you guys want the rights to go to Marvel Studios. Get the [frick] out of here.


JoeMomma29 - 6/9/2013, 11:56 AM
And do not get me wrong I would love to see The Sinister Six in a movie, but to cram it in so quickly is not a good idea.

I smell another Spider Man 3 outcome!
rocky - 6/9/2013, 11:56 AM
Sounds like they're building for a Sinister 6 film IMO

Loving this
highflyer - 6/9/2013, 11:56 AM
The problem was with spider-man 3 is that previous villans both died and they tried to introduce two villans and make them important in a couple of minutes (venom). I think its smart for them to introduce the some villans here and allow them to reappear in the third film.
GizmoEl - 6/9/2013, 11:56 AM
I think this is brilliant news. I don't see it as cramming villains like Spider-Man 3, but more like mcu style placement.
GizmoEl - 6/9/2013, 11:57 AM
Webb said he's creating a universe for spidey
MrCBM56 - 6/9/2013, 11:57 AM
^Haha not Beatrice, Batroc

Damn autocorrect!
highflyer - 6/9/2013, 11:58 AM
But I think it would be awesome to have the sinister six. If any of you have read the ultimate spider-man comics, you'll know that they mess with peter's life seriously especially norman. SWEET!
nailbiter111 - 6/9/2013, 12:00 PM
we all know that the more villains you have in the film, the better the film is, right?
Nick56 - 6/9/2013, 12:00 PM
[frick] this movie. the first one was complete shit and this movie, based on everything we've seen and heard, will also be complete shit.
TheAcidSkull - 6/9/2013, 12:01 PM
I hope they GET developed and BECOME villains in ASM 3 or ASM 4 and etc
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 6/9/2013, 12:02 PM
Yeah, I'm with @53. Where are the pics of Cooper as Goblin? Shit, I'm pretty surprised that they're bringing in Gobby in the second film. I, along with other CBMers, have figured that we'd see him suit up as GG in TASM3.
janitra - 6/9/2013, 12:02 PM
The Dark Knight has scarecrow, joker, 2 face, and Maroni if you count him too.

There's no way Sinister six going to happen, if people keep complaining the movie has too many villains.
DruDox19 - 6/9/2013, 12:02 PM
Damn that is a lot of villains for one film but hey i think Marc Webb knows what he is trying to do and is trying to go off with a bang with this Spider Man movie and i get it. Yeah it is a bit too much but i have faith in Marc Webb. Personally i want spider man to be in his own universe to be honest i don't want the Marvel cinematic Universe that is apart of Marvel to be overcrowded and next thing you know it becomes comic book continuity

You guys need to chill with this film has to bomb bullshit just so it can go back to marvel and to me this is not fair what so ever. If that happens what you want another Spider Man reboot and then bullshit continuity crap. I dont want the MCU to become Comic Book Continuity
MrMartinMarvel - 6/9/2013, 12:03 PM
In case you guys are confused let me lay it out for you. In one movie Webb intends to tackle...
1. Introducing Norman Osborn
2. Introducing Harry Osborn
3. Introducing Mary Jane
4. Introducing Max Dillion
5. Introducing Aleksei Mikhailovich Sytsevich (Rhino)
6. Introducing Adrian Toomes
7. Turning Max Dillion into Electro
8. Turning Aleksei into Rhino
9. Turning Adrian Toomes into Vulture
10. Turning Norman Osborn into Green Goblin
11. Killing off Gwen Stacy.
12. Setting up the Sinister Six
Did I miss anything?
