Over on the latest IGN Movies Keepin' it Reel podcast (I'd link to it, but can't access IGN from work), one of the guys - Stax, I think - suggests something novel: that ASM2 begin mid-battle with a baddie only featured in that one opening sequence, much like a Bond opening. He makes the rather interesting point that, despite these superheroes having extensive rogues galleries, pretty much all such villains figure into the main stories of the movies at hand. The closest exception I can think of offhand is the Sentinels in X3, and those of course aren't actually real.
It's something I've thought about as well. I like it because it's a way to include some minor villains who you might not ordinarily get to see.

The official synopsis has been revealed:

In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy - between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can't come quickly enough. Peter hasn't forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen's father to protect her by staying away - but that's a promise he just can't keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

Pretty vague really. No detonation.

Had hoped to see Giamatti as a JJ Klingon one day. Fear he may be wasted here but will be good anyway. Having just seen Antony Hopkins' Hitchcock, wondered if he might don the fatsuit again as Kingpin . But dream casting would have been Robbie Coltrane.
Kingpin previously was owned by Fox, when they bought the rights to Daredevil. But Fox let it lapse and the rights to the character now belong to Marvel studios. Admittedly, as discussed above, Marvel might be more open to lending characters like him to Sony to appear in a Spider-man movie but it's still on the unlikely side.

Count me in as also supporting the 'Bond opening sequence' type approach to minor villains. A good way of including them without getting that cluttered approach of Spider-man 3 or the Schumacher Batman movies.

The amended costume for the new movie has been revealed; well the upper half anyway. Meanwhile, Dane DeHann is bulking up for his role.

Looks a million times better, but still looks too polished.

I'd love to see a Spidey film in which the costume looks quite rubbish like something actually put together by a kid.

Suit's been upgraded

I thought Gaith's thread was the official discussion thread? Anyway...I love the new suit. The new eye piece does a tremendous job of putting more expression in the mask, and the expanded Spider-Logo on the chest is terrific.
This is, indeed, the official pre-release discussion thread.

Interesting... definitely a more Raimi-looking suit...

Are we sure this isn't just somebody out dogging in a Spidey costume?
