Sony Pictures has revealed big plans to expand the “Spider-Man” franchise according to a recent report by The Wrap.com. The studio’s Co-Chairman Amy Pascal says:
“We are going to access Marvel’s full world of Spider-Man characters, so be on the lookout for new heroes and villains.”
Wow! Considering the gallery of supporting characters available in the multiplex, more than a couple come to mind that can be introduced. Jamie Foxx once teased us with the possibility of introducing the infamous Sinister Six, the Daily Bugle’s Tumblr page hinted at the appearances of Spider-Slayers and The Vulture. Hopefully this also presents opportunities for the studio to develop something which includes Venom and the Black Cat. Venom was introduced before in Sam Raimi’s “Spider Man 3,” however the time spent to develop the character was not significant enough to bring forward Venom’s true potential.
Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) will be suiting up to face-off against Electro (Jamie Foxx) and The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”, scheduled to be released on May 2, 2014.
