Villain for Amazing Spider-Man 3?

Easter Eggs in the Daily bugle

It looks as if The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will have all kinds of Easter Eggs for a possible villain for the next installment of the franchise. The Hollywood Reporter is stating that numerous “in universe” news papers are reporting the sightings of the Vulture, Hydroman, and even the Spider-Slayers (Spencer Smythe). These come via the Daily Bugle’s Tumblr. 

“Headlined "Oscorp Biz Holds Steady," the report -- by Joy Mercado, a Bugle reporter who appeared inSpider-Man comics throughout the 1980s -- name drops an Oscorp spokesman called Douglas Menken, who shares a surname with Norman Osborn's comic book PA Donald Menken, as well as Oscorp employee Spencer Smythe, an inventor in the comic book who went on to create the robotic Spider-Slayers.”

This sounds great, but aren’t we going to see Norman Osborn in the next film? Could Sony and Marvel really be establishing the character before they unleash the Green Goblin?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives May 2nd 2014.

I hoping Spidey fights the Sinister Syndicate in the AS3 myself.  I don't know what will happen to the Rhino in the upcoming flick, but the whole group making an appearance would be cool.

 I agree, the S6 would be a fantastic 3rd movie. Would Spidey have the Black Cat help him? I would like to see him buddy up in a movie. It hasn't been done yet. Just please... not Hugh Jackman (I know, I know... studio rights and all that, I just wanted to put the joke out there)

There has to be at least one more movie before the Sinister Six can come into it. What villains have they intrduced? Certianly not enought to make up the S6. At least one more movie, then get on to the S6. Sony seems to handling this new Spidey series with pride, I am a very happy panda.o

Sony has done better by Spiderman than Fox has by X-Men and the FF. At least they haven't screwed up Spiderman's film continuity like Fox has with X-Men and are about screw up the FF's.

I have a feeling Rhino will just be comic relief with no suit for this movie, but if i does go full full Rhino it will be with Osborn's help and some Rhino DNA...

Rhino will have a suit, either the 616 version or the mech-like one from the Ultimate U.

axia agree completely.

Oh wow the Rhino, as much as I loved Spidey as a kid, now I feel like he has the worst villains in the marvel universe.

Yeah, The Rhino will definately be in costume.  They Showed Paul G. in some type of Huge Mo-Cap suit.  How much film time he will get, will remain to be seen.  I agree, with 3 solid movies to set up the villians, then the 4th being the the sinister 6.

@almostunbias, There is a reason spidey has such street level (basic) villians.  His likability is because he doesn't take on Galatus or Magneto.  Simple stories of stopping a bank robbery or something simple like that.  Thats why all his villians are almost always stronger then him.  He usually beats them with his smarts.

You guys should read the bio they had for Rhino in the video game. it was spot on with the character we are going to see in the film only he was offered up to Oscorp as a test subject who was experimented on with a formula similar to what Connors used. i think he will be a mutation

there are also alot of easter eggs in the game that reference the vulture including billboards with the name Adrian Toombs
