With Sony already scheduling a sequel and the Amazing Spider-man already alluding to a sequel I was wondering who you guys would want as a villain in ASM2.

Now, the Lizard I thought was a good villain, not the best but I liked the actors performance and found him entertaining and theatening. Didn't like the face, but I suppose many people will have said that.

Now, throughout the film Norman Osborn was mention which says to me that he will be in the movies next time. However, I would rather leave it for the third one and just introduce Norman for the minute so we get to know him before he becomes the Goblin.

Despite this, I think Osborn should be involved in the creation of the next villain or build on the Lizard since what we learnt in the film about Norman. For this my choices would be:

1) Scorpion: Mac Gargan is a private detective who is hired by Oscorp to follow Peter. Osborn decides to use the same process on Gargan that happened with Peter in order to make a formula for Osborn.

2) Kraven: Spidey has become a house hold name and as such he is now being hunted by Kraven who wants to catch the new species of a man-spider.

3) Vulture or Shocker as a henchmen or side villain.
 
I voted Electro. Up until just recently (today haha!) he wouldn't be my choice because I've always loved Mysterio, Shocker etc. more. But I can see him being an epic villain in the next film and I'd want to save Green Goblin for ASM3.
 
Electro as our lead villain, with a couple of mobsters thrown in: Tombstone and Black Tarantula.

Max Dillon has been forced to rely on people in high places to make his way in the world. He hates it. He's on a team brought in by OsCorp to work on a machine that will be used to refine a Cure for Cancer that the Parkers and Brocks were working on.

Black Tarantula is a mobster/slaver that abducts human subjects from third world villages and ships them back to New York. There, his right-hand man, Herman Schultz, arranges to hand the test subjects over to an OsCorp representative. His operations are threatning to bring heavy police presence through Tombstone's territory. This is the cause of a small scale turf war between Tombstone and Black Tarantula.

Sabotage causes the accident which creates Electro. With his powers, Electro targets Black Tarantula, Tombstone, and Norman Osborn: all people he believed to be self-styled gods feeding off the lost, the desperate, and the ambitious common folk.

Eddie Brock is introduced as a photojournalist interested in exposing corruption within various regimes. His interests put Black Tarantula's men on the run and costs him his old job. His investigation into Black Tarantula leads him to NYC and OsCorp.

There he and Peter begin working as freelancers for the Bugle, providing pics of the gangland violence between Black Tarantula and Tombstone. They soon learn of their mutual interests in OsCorp.

In an attempt to retain public favor of OsCorp, Norman presents the NYPD with Spider-Slayers and military grade armor to deal with the threat of Electro, as well as the turf wars between Tombstone and Black Tarantula.

Peter would have to seek Gwen's help in finding a way to defeat Electro.
 
They have two years to get the movie ready and imho the only villians they can do justice in that time is; Shocker (guy in a suit) Electro (guy in a suit) Mysterio (guy in a suit with a CG head).
 
Scorpion
Mysterio
Or electro.

Either a combination of two or just one of these would be great for the sequel
 
I think it's safe to say that GG will be the villian for ASM3 so this will be you final chance to see your favorite Spidey villian on the big screen if they haven't appeared already. So for me it's a straight choice of Electro or Mysterio, both villians are nothing like any Spidey villian previously seen on the big screen
 
I don't want them dragging GG out to TASM3. He's "dying" in TASM and is so far gone that they're rushing Connors to human rial. He doesn't need to be languishing in the shadows for a second film. Peter breaking his promise to Captain Stacy sets things up for Gwen in the sequel. Do it now before we get too far from TASM's ending and also do it now because I don't think the series should risk ending on the Death of Gwen Stacy. There needs to be at least one film of Peter growing from that experience and finding a more mature relationship with MJ (one that she will have to initiate and pursue, perhaps by revealing she figured out he's Spider-Man).

So TASM2 needs to definitely introduce MJ, perhaps a second-tier villain who works for Gobby, and the mean greenie himself.

Then TAMS3 can go somewhere all together different with no goblins, origins or (hopefully) symbiotes. And maybe do Peter and MJ better, as well.
 
There was an idea i liked a lot that had Mysterio or Chameleon impersonating Spider-Man and making people believe he was comiting crimes, then Kraven comes to get some recognition by trying to hunt him down.

Kraven could even start as a strong and athletic human that encounters spider-man allways when he was just injured by the police, when spidey's finally able to beat mysterio he could give a major beating to Kraven on live TV. Then Osborn may aproach him with a serum that enhances his strenght and reflexes, and so you have the final battle between Spider-man and Kraven.
 
Shocker

I can see Electro working, too.

I think that the can introduce Mary Jane in TAS-M 2, Gwen can die in the middle of the 3rd film, and after Green Goblin's defeat the last 15-30 minutes can be a sort of epilogue like the one in TAS-M, where Peter now moves on with his life after Gwen's death with Mary Jane there to support him.
 
I wouldn't mind seeing GG saved for TASM3, but it would be cool to see Norman Osborn step out of the shadows and play a more active role in TASM2. To be honest, I'd rather see a yet to be adapted villain in TASM2 (maybe Electro or Kraven).


If the TASM franchise is going to follow the villain framework of TDK (just me being a stupid fanboy):

TASM (Lizard) = BB (Ra's)
one of the hero's mentors turned villain

TASM2 (maybe GG + maybe Harry or Ult. Brock) = TDK (Joker + Two-Face)
hero's greatest archnemesis + friend turned villain

TASM3 (maybe Kraven + maybe Black Cat) = TDKR (Bane + Catwoman)
villain that broke/defeated hero + love interest type of villain

I like the idea of Osborn using Chameleon as a means of removing corporate rivals as well as eliminating Spider-Man. To that end, he could have Chameleon pose as Spider-Man, and meet with Black Tarantula. This would lead the NYPD to believe that Spider-Man and Black Tarantula are in cahoots, and allow Norman to use the NYPD as a means of unleashing the Spider-Slayers and generate some positive public regard after the Lizard fiasco.

After Goblin, where can these movies go except to a Symbiote or Sinister Six?
 
Osborn should be introduced in the second one but shouldn't become GG goblin till the 3rd one.

A really cool mid credit scene could be Osborn watching Peter getting bit by the Spider in the blue room from ASM1
 
People can cling to life for a long time, so I don't see why the Green Goblin HAS to be the villain in part 2 like a lot of people seem to think. Norman should be the big bad in the background, using the current villains to find a solution to his life, maybe even becoming quasi-indestructible by the time the third film comes out, like the Lizard this time.

In the meantime, have him create more Spider-Man villains, or have a hand in their creation, as with the Lizard. I voted for Mysterio, Kraven, and the Vulture, and here is why. Mysterio and Vulture can conceivably be villains Norman creates to lead him to the creation of the Green Goblin, or experiments with alternative forms of engineering. Mysterio could very well be the man in shadows, the Green Goblin's right hand man.

As for Kraven, he could be a hunter who comes to New York to hunt all the game there, and eventually becomes fixated on Spider-Man. Perhaps his genetics somehow holds a key to Norman, who'd use everything to become immortal or something.
 
Electro as main villain and continue to build on Norman Osborne. Osborn should have a bigger role in ASM2 even if hes not the main villain.
 
Why would Eletro be a better villian than Mysterio? All Electro can do is shoot lightning, right?
 
For the look of GG they should just embrace the look of the comic and screw the reason why he looks like that rather than coming up with a plausible reason to where the purple and green.

Spidey - 'What the heck are you wearing?'

Green Gobin - *shrugs*
 
I'd rather introduce Osborn and Harry in the next one, and have Osborn being the guy in the background trying to capture Spider-man to find out the formula to save his life. Or he uses the formula on someone taht came from the Lizard for human trials and creates the next villain.

Mysterio is one of my favorite Spider-Man Villains and I actually prefer Beck instead of Electro. But I cant see him working in Webbs Spider-Man after watching ASM. For Raimis I think he would have perfect. Electro I can see them doing more modern and have his effects kind of like the game Infamous. Electricity can be quite powerful and lend itself to some pretty insane visuals if they do it right. Not just shoot lightning.
 
Why would Mysterio be a better villain thatn Electro? All he can do is spray gas.

He can impersonate Spidey
He can create elaberate illusions (like transporting Spidey to any location)
He can robots that mimic other characters/villians/heroes

Limitless potential

Give me some examples.

Not this early. Later, most definitley. :cwink:

The way I see it. Lightning Storm type effects from leeching of other devicies, Shockwaves, Hovering, throwing bigger objects with electrical waves, Elecectric fields, riding electrical lines. If you put someone who is eseentialy a conductor in the middle of New York with the power to manipulate electricity therenot gonna just shoot lightning bolts at people. Which I think you can get creative and pwerful with as well. He would turn himself into a ticking bomb with a huge amount of power. The guy wouldnt need a doomsday device like most villains cause he essentially could be one himself.

I'd like to see Otto Octavius. In light of Curt Connors being incarcerated, Oscorp needs a new chief scientist. Set him up to be Dr. Octopus in the third film.
