The “Amazing Spider-Man 2” already has it’s fair share of villains (there are more instances of Electro and the Green Goblin in a teasedfour-minute Super Bowl spotthan the web-slinger himself), but director Marc Webb may have just added another to the roster — “The Office” star B.J. Novak.
Fans of the comics, will deduce that A. Smythe may stand for Alistair Smythe.
That character gets transformed the Ultimate Spider-Slayer, another one of Spider-Man’s known enemies.
The sequel is already jam-packed with three villains — the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan), Electro (Jamie Foxx), and the Rhino (Paul Giamatti).
Before you groan over the addition of another potential villain, Novak’s character could simply be a setup for future “Spider-Man” sequels or for the many spinoffs Sony is planning based on Spidey’s villains.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is set for release May 2.
