The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is already packed tight with three villains (something that didn’t exactly play well when Spider-Man 3 tried it out): Jamie Foxx as Electro, Paul Giamatti as the Rhino, and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin. So it’s with a grain of salt that we take the newest Amazing Spider-Man 2 rumor—that the Vulture will now also be added the film’s rogue’s gallery.
The rumor reportage comes from Comic Book Movie, which asserts that actor Colm Feore (Thor, The Chronicles of Riddick, Storm of the Century) has now been as Adrian Toomes. Comic book fans will recognize the name Adrain Toomes as the alter ego of the Vulture, a.k.a. the old bald guy in Spider-Man comics who dresses up like a bird.
Further, Comic Book Movie reports that Vulture will be joining forces with Rhino, Electro, and Green Goblin to create the first four members of The Sinister Six, the villainous supergroup that is tasked with destroying Spider-Man (other members over the years have been Doc Ock, Sandman, Mysterio, Kraven, and Venom), with the full Six to appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
Again, this seems a little much, even for a film that is confirmed to feature a bad guy called The Rhino. But hey, the last film feature a nine foot tall lizard with an English accent.
What do you think—will the Vulture be in The Amazing Spider-Man 2?
