Meet the villains of The Amazing Spider-Man 2

hypno-hustler-2

What’s a hero without a few good villains to define/menace/annoy him? The upcoming Spider-Man movie sequel has been teasing all of the villains ever created, even though there are only three real threats in that movie. And a few more in the tie-in game as well.

Here’s the latest trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as well as a completely unofficial synopsis on each bad guy:

The Kingpin

The boss of bosses, runs all organised crime throughout New York City and beyond while maintaining the guise of a philanthropic businessman. Despite his size, is immensely strong and deceptively quick in a fight.

Black Cat

Agile cat-burglar with bad luck powers that can affect the probability of those around her. Is also one hell of a flirt.

Electro

Master of electricity, looks like a Smurf on rave-party steroids in the latest film.

Green Goblin

Imagine the Joker with the wealth and genius of Batman, throw in a few themed gadgets and you have your Goblin.

Kraven the Hunter

Master tracker and hunter, enhanced senses and peak physical conditioning. Once went completely nuts after he defeated Spider-Man. I mean like Los Angeles wandering hobo crazy.

Maybe I was wrong about the Spider-Man games aping the Batman Arkham games. After all, this plot for the game about the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man having pissed off a major gang boss who lets loose several assassins on his wall-crawling ass sounds completely original to me.

The game is out in time for the film this month, and will be on pretty much every platform with a controller. Thwip thwip.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

    Kingpin, Kraven and Green Goblin… some of my fav villains in the Spiderman universe.

    They come after Carnage of course.

    • Admiral Chief in Space

      Janee Carnage is the all time badass villain

      • VampyreSquirrel

        I’ve actually got a collectors edition card of him… it’s the pride and joy of my collection

      • Dutch Matrix

        Bah! Carnage will see his ass handed to him by Deadpool!
        (YAY! I made a current comic book reference!)

    • Rock789

      Hell yeah! I would LOVE a movie to have Carnage in it! But they messed up Venom so much in that train wreck of a movie (Spidey3), that I may not wanna see their Carnage version… :(

    • Hammersteyn

      I always liked Kaine

  • FoxOneZA

    ” looks like a Smurf on rave-party steroids in the latest film.” << Pre-order material ;)
