In the movie-based Spider-man and Spider-man 2 video games that came out for Xbox, PS2, PC and Gamecube there were many villains put in as bosses other than Green Goblin and Doc Ock. Such villains included Vulture, Scorpion, Shocker, Rhino, Mysterio and Black Cat (not really a villain). There were others, but I can't remember them all just now. It has been my thinking that they have left out certain villains on purpose so that when a video game for SM3 or SM4 comes out, we don't see the main bad guy for that game (based on the movie villain) be some mini-boss that we beat in a previous game. Omissions from these games include Sandman, Lizard, Venom/Carnage, Kraven, and GG2/Hobgoblin (though the arc of SM2 includes harry, so it fits with whatever the movies end up doing). They never had that doppelganger character either, I don't think. Based on who they have left out of the games, we may be able to figure out who they plan to actually put into a future movie. Has Electro been in the games? Who else has been missing? Does this make sense as a villain theory? Close this thread if there is one like it already, but I couldn't find one.
