SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is getting an armory, but whose will it be? The reveal of the weapons fortress is the latest tease from the movie’s set to be released by director Marc Webb, but he’s made sure it’s just cryptic enough that fans can’t parse out too many details from the image.
Webb simply tweeted, “Day 36. The Armory,” but the picture he attached is so small it’s hard to make out anything actually that’s in the set being built. That being said, it seems doubtful that Peter Parker gathered these sort of resources since the last Amazing Spider-Man movie. If anything, it seems more likely that this armory belongs to one of his many enemies: Electro, or maybe even Norman Osborn. The latter seems the likeliest, as he’s also the Amazing Spider-Man 2 character with the most money.
There’s also the chance that this armory could be a part of the Ravencroft Institute, as Webb already revealed that location will have a presence in the upcoming movie. The image he recently posted of Ravencroft’s Sub-floor Level 3 room listing did reveal a “Weapon Pick-Up” room, but not an armory.
Opening May 4, 2014, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Colm Feore, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Chris Cooper and Felicity Jones. Here’s the plot synopsis:
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.
