The reports reads:
“Despite the assault on Oscorp Tower two weeks ago and the revelation that disgruntled Oscorp employee, Dr. Curt Connors, was responsible for the attack, Oscorp’s stock has climbed four points,”
“Oscorp spokesman Douglas Menken provided some details from the meeting, including that the construction on the prototype alternative energy power plant, complete with hydroelectric tower, is on schedule for completion within the next year.”
“Other highlights included a preview of a flight harness for the military and significant advancements in robotics by the head of the engineering division, Spencer Smythe,”
The report continues:
“Oscorp personnel dismissed questions regarding Norman Osborn’s health and whether the company’s estranged heir apparent, Harry Osborn, is up to the task of running his father’s conglomerate.”
“Menken stated, ‘Between the disappearance of Dr. Rajit Ratha, the rogue actions of a very unstable former employee and Norman Osborn’s health concerns, everyone in the media will cry the sky is falling, but just the opposite is true. While everyone else ducks for cover, Oscorp is always reaching for the stars.’ “
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone will reprise their roles as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy respectively. Dane DeHaan stars as Peter Parkers friend Harry Osborn and the film is villainized by Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giamatti as The Rhino.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is set to be released on May 2, 2014.
