A new line of action figures might provide some clues about who else is showing up in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. (Warning: possible spoilers ahead!)
Slashfilm nabbed some photos courtesy of Movies.com editor Erik Davis, who attended a Hasbro event in New York City where several products from the new Spider-Man toy line were on display. In addition to action figures based on confirmed villain Electro (Jamie Foxx), there were also several other villain toys on hand, namely ones based on Black Cat, Green Goblin and Carnage.
Now, it should be said that just because there are new toys for these characters, it doesn't mean they're all in the movie. But in the case of Green Goblin -- for which the toy is apparently an extreme take on the Ultimates version of the character -- we know that Norman Osborn is in the film and played by Chris Cooper.
Likewise, Black Cat's inclusion has been rumored for months, ever since British actress Felicity Jones was cast in a still-undisclosed role that has been said to be Spidey's favorite kitty.
As for Carnage -- well, there have been no whispers whatsoever about him showing up in the movie, but certain aspects of the Ultimate Marvel version of this villain could possibly be tied to the backstory about Peter Parker's father Richard and Dr. Curt Connors that was vaguely laid out in The Amazing Spider-Man. Perhaps Carnage will show up in The Amazing Spider-Man 3?
And here's an Electro figure for good measure (from Latino Review's Twitter feed):
Now again, the inclusion of these toys in Hasbro's new line does not automatically confirm their appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 next May. But do you think there's a good chance we'll get to see at least one of them?
