If you've seen the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, then you'll have no doubt noticed a certain set of mechanical arms in the vault at OsCorp, hinting that Doctor Octopus is set to make his debut in Sony's rebooted Spidey universe, presumably in 2016's The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Well, the latest article from the Daily Planet viral site on Tumblr (yes, the one that was ever so "subtly" plugged in the trailer) has given us our first mention of Doc Ock himelf, or rather his pre-supervillain persona Dr. Otto Octavius...

Remakes are nothing new in Hollywood. Take a look back through cinema history and there are plenty of example of ideas and stories being recycled for new audiences. Take, for instance, Robin Hood and Zorro, whose big-screen exploits stretch right the way back to Douglas Fairbanks in the silent era.
Right now two high profile re-dos - Carrie and Oldboy - are screening in cinemas. Considering just how well the originals are regarded, it begs one simple question - why? One carries a recognisable name, the other is a critically lauded foreign-language cult film that has a limited audience.
In the end it may all boil down to making money, but that's still no excuse for some of the remakes that have been served up in recent memory. Digital Spy looks at 9 cinematic remakes that didn't need to happen below...
Wouldn’t this be a fanboy and fangirl’s dream?
First of all, let me just say that I’m fully aware that this is very unlikely to ever happen, but it’s fun to imagine and it’s good to hope!
As unlikely as it is, Hugh Jackman and Andrew Garfield have both said they want it to happen – stating that they’d be more than open to the ideas of their Wolverine and Spider-Man characters respectively joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Avengers roster.
It would be a tough task for any writer, director or producer to put a movie of this scale together – even if, by some miracle, the respective studios of Marvel/Disney, Fox and Sony were to pull together to make it happen – which further hampers its plausibility.
Many people will say that the continuities should never merge anyway, because it would raise questions like »

(Cbr) "The Amazing Spider-Man 2"‘s first full trailer premiered Thursday morning, packing a whole lot of punch (and story) into a two-and-a-half-minute package. Now, there’s even more, thanks to Total Film’s epic commentary video featuring director Marc Webb, Andrew Garfield and the other stars of "Spider-Man" breaking down the trailer with new details and behind-the-scenes secrets. One such secret: The first shot of Spider-Man in the trailer is the first shot of Spider-Man in the film. “We’ve been working on it for about eight months,” Webb says. “We wanted to establish that iconic version of Spider-Man that we all know and »

Yesterday, the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 finally debuted, which hinted at villains such as Vulture, Doctor Octopus, Black Cat and Venom. Adding more speculative fuel to the fire is the latest post from The Daily Bugle, where reporter Joy Mercado is taken inside the walls of OsCorp by company spokesperson Donald Menken, who is played by Colm Feore in the sequel. Take a look at the full article, which mentions Dr. Otto Octavius, a.k.a. Doctor Octopus.

The Flickering Myth writing team give their views on the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2....
What a couple of days it's been for comic book movie fans. Aside from the news that Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman (read our reaction here), we also had Bryan Singer announce X-Men: Apocalypse for 2016 and we've also been given the first official trailer for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The Week in Spandex is going to be a busy one this week!
With all this excitement, what did the Flickering Myth writing team think of the trailer..?
Oliver Davis: I like to think I'm a rational human being. One who's seen enough superhero movie trailers to know that you can't judge these films on the promotional material alone. Some have a boring build, but I end up enjoying them (Captain America: The First Avenger »
Ever since B.J. Novak joined the cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 back in March, fans have wonder which character he is playing. The actor has now confirmed that he is playing someone from the original run of comic books. And that he works at Oscorp...But he wouldn't confirm his identity just yet.
"I'm in a couple of scenes. I was never told whether or not I could say. I can say that I work at Oscorp. And I am someone from the comic books, someone from the original. So, yeah, I'm somebody. I wouldn't say I'm pivotal, but I'm not an extra, either."
Since this character works at Oscorp, it's possible that the actor is playing Spencer Smythe, Oscorp's head of engineering, who was just featured in one of The Daily Bugle viral website articles this week. The first trailer that debuted yesterday goes onto hint at the inclusion of Doctor Octopus, »
In a recent interview with The Huffington Post, B.J Novak gives us details about his character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2."I'm in a couple of scenes." Novak stated, "Yeah, I was never told whether or not I could say. I can say that I work at Oscorp. And I am someone from the comic books, someone from the original. So, yeah, I'm somebody. I wouldn't say I'm pivotal, but I'm not an extra, either." Who do you think B.J Novak's character is in the Spidey sequel? We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, »
The trailer of the web slinger's latest has teasing glimpses of an assortment of villains. Will all these rogues help the movie swing?

Is Jamie Foxx's Electro really the main villain of The Amazing Spider-Man 2? While Foxx was front and centre in that leaked Comic Con trailer from July, there has been a sense ever since that the villain in the piece might really be Chris Cooper's Norman Osborn, the Green Goblin of the Marvel comics.
First there was that leaked poster, which appeared to show the impish, emerald-skinned bomb chucker flying through the skies of Manhattan on his trademark glider. Now comes the first full trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, in which Electro is almost an afterthought. The main focus is on Norman, who we get to see properly for the »

After a week of hype, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer finally dropped yesterday, and it was quite fantastic. But it raised a lot of questions, so Total Film got director Marc Webb and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHann, and Jamie Foxx together to break down the trailer, and offer some tid-bits of information (including a satisfying explanation concerning The Rhino's new look) on what to expect when the movie swings (sorry) into cinema's next Summer. Synopsis: We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being. »

While we've already had trailers for two of next year's superhero offerings in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sony has been making us wait for our first look at the upcoming sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2. However, after counting down with some snippets of footage this week, the studio has finally dropped the first trailer for Spidey's latest adventure and you can check it out right here after the official synopsis...

Earlier today we got the first incredibly awesome trailer for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The trailer was so good that it gave me goosebumps. It has now been released with some great commentary included from director Marc Webb and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, and Dane DeHaan. There's some interesting stuff here that I think a lot of fans would like to know, so check it out! Thanks to Total Film.

I know what you're thinking: 'Enough with the The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer, already!' Maybe you've gotten sick and tired of all the coverage this two minute teaser has received today. But that's what happens when a director hides tons of Easter eggs, buried deep for fans to find. So far, we've discovered the appearance of the Black Cat, and nods towards The Vulture and Doctor Octopus. Now, a Reddit user by the name of VurigKnijn has grabbed a quick frame from the footage that hints at the inclusion of Venom as part of the Sinister 6. Take a look and then watch the trailer again...Do you think this popular villain will appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 3? Or The Amazing Spider-Man 4? Or is it really just good old 'venom' storage, drained from snakes and other reptiles?

"But being Spider-Man comes at a price...
"Only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city.
"With the emergence of 'Electro' (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he.

2014 is the Year of the Superteam. There’s Marvel’s goofball space-squadron Guardians of the Galaxy. There’s an X-Men movie starring two or three or seven different groups of X-Men. Captain America’s on furlough from The Avengers, but in The Winter Soldier he’s hanging out with a B-team of Capsters like Black Widow and Falcon. That makes The Amazing Spider-Man 2 an outlier. The second chapter of Marc Webb’s reboot saga once again focuses on the travails of a teenaged Peter Parker, still dating Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy and still trying to solve the mystery of his father. »

How many villains can one film hold? That's just one of many questions that come to mind while watching the brand new trailer for the reboot sequel "Amazing Spider-Man 2." Joining returning stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are no less than three (or maybe four) bad guys, played by Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti and Chris Cooper. Will there be enough room for them all? How much of the sequel will be spent setting up parts 3 and 4? And what's with Harry's hair? Take a look at our questions and see if you can offer some answers: »
