Is ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Making the Promise of All Out War? — PICS

For fans whose Spider-Man knowledge doesn’t extend too far beyond the material covered in Sam Raimi’s good/great/awful trilogy, the name “Ravencroft” might not ring a bell. But if you’ve been keeping a watchful eye, you’ll have noticed the insignia for the eponymous organization popping up all over the Amazing Spider-Man 2 set. The latest in director Marc Webb’s set pic tweets have showcased the nefarious Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane, Marvel’s answer to the Batman universe’s Arkham Asylum.

Locked away in Ravencroft are a slew of Spider-Man baddies deemed unfit for civil living… and it seems as though one or two of them are going to slip through the cracks in the upcoming sequel. After all, why would director Webb bother sharing images of armed security guards and ominous steel doors if not to suggest that there’s going to be trouble?

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
