The Amazing Spider-Man 2
already has a couple of villains on board in the form of Electro and Rhino, but a recent image released by director Mark Webb has got fans wondering whether there might yet be another in store.
The image shows what looks like a locker in a morgue, marked with the number 14. Webb accompanied the pic with a brief caption, reading, “Day 3. #happybirthday”. Curious…
Now, being an aficionado of the comics, Webb will know that Peter Parker and Eddie Brock discovered Venom in a similar locker at Oscorp, again marked with the number 14.
On top of that, Venom first made his appearance in April 1988, and factoring the two month lead time between a comics creation and publication, that would make February 2013 his 25th birthday.
Or of course, it could just be a note to Dane DeHaan, whose birthday was on Wednesday! In any case, we’re intrigued. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in the UK on 18 April 2014.
