THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2: Eddie Brock And The Enforcers Featured In Latest Daily Bugle Viral
An article written by Eddie Brock (a.k.a. Venom) has been published on The Daily Bugle viral website, and as well as confirming his presence in The Amazing Spider-Man movie-verse, it also tells the story of a battle between Spidey and classic villains The Enforcers.
What began as a mob shoot-out escalated into a full-blown superhuman slugfest when the vigilante known as Spider-Man appeared on the scene. An argument inside the Zero One Lounge turned ugly when reputed mob enforcer, “Fancy” Dan Brito, pulled a gun on rivals from the Manfredi crime family. As club-goers fled onto the streets of the Meatpacking District, Spider-Man dropped down out of the sky.
Not content to merely take the law into his own hands, bystanders claimed that Spider-Man mocked the thugs as he delivered a one-two punch that sent them soaring.
“It was hard to see from where I was hiding,” said witness Andrea Moore of Park Slope, “but I heard someone, I’m pretty sure it was Spider-Man, say, ‘I hope you’re not afraid of heights,’ and then one of those guys screamed as he landed on top of a fire escape.”
When pressed about any crimes she may have witnessed Spider-Man committing, Moore replied, “Crimes? It’s not a crime to round up stray dogs. What the hell are you talking about?”
Spider-Man disappeared as police arrived to find a dozen mobsters restrained with unmistakable webbing. Brito and his accomplices, Jackson “Montana” Brice and Raymond “The Ox” Bloch, spent the night in the 10TH Precinct holding cell. The NYPD has yet to announce what charges, if any, they plan to bring against the smack-talking vigilante.
Brito, led away in handcuffs, was overheard describing the encounter with the web-slinger: “Just when I thought I was out, he pulled me back in.”
This is yet another cool Easter egg for fans, but obviously far from confirmation that we'll see The Enforcers in The Amazing Spider-Man 2! Many fans have been speculating that the mention of Venom in the recently released trailer was an indication that Eddie Brock would be introduced into the movies in the same way as the Ultimate Universe, but this article instead confirms that this version works for The Daily Bugle (just like his 616 comic book counterpart).
