With The Amazing Spiderman 2 recently hitting theatres and its strong implications for the future of the franchise I thought it a good time to put together my ideal list of contenders to fill out the villain ensemble. There are some pretty obvious choices in here but I do believe there are a couple of names that have yet to be thrown around.

Marc Webb’s second outing behind Sony’s crown jewel definitely lives up to the name. The Amazing Spiderman 2 was just that, amazing. While there were some notable issues ASM proves to be a thoroughly entertaining, emotional, silly, adept world building film all at the same time.

The only negatives I kept hearing about the first Marc Webb Spiderman flick were about the rehashed origin and the ugly Lizard, these 2 things have no bearing on whether or not a film is “good” or not. Check out below for an assortment of reactions and remember to not let it influence your decision to go see it too much. Nobodies opinion should matter more than your own! —>
