‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’ Twitter Pics: A (Marc) Webb of Mysteries

On Saturday May 11 Webb tweeted our very first look at The Rhino, the Spider-Man villain Paul Giamatti had vocally lobbied to play, including in an appearance on Conan. Sure, he seems very angry here, which is in keeping with the character. But, um, where is his horn? Or rather, helmet that looks a lot like a horn? That line around his head must be where it attaches. And where is he driving to in such a hurry? Undoubtedly, Rhino's leaving a trail of destruction in his wake.

Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb has been tweeting up a storm on set and the result is a photographic mystery. We already know that Electro will be playing central villain in the upcoming sequel, but this wall of flames, which Webb attributes to Jamie Foxx's evildoer in his tweet, is our first sign of the baddie's boiling point.

This next image reveals a new cast member: B.J. Novak of 'The Office' acclaim. With those thick glasses and that scowl, we can only predict that Novak will be playing a villainous card. But could he surprise us?

Those well-versed in the Marvel canon know that any mention of the Ravencroft Institute means trouble, as Spidey's version of Arkham Asylum. What does this nefarious corporation have in store for Peter Parker? Is it a promise of villainy?

If Ravencroft's heavily armored secret wasn't ominous enough, we've got cyborg-like security guards to worry about. Something makes us think that Spider-Man will have to take on one or two of these masked soldiers to get to the bottom of the upcoming movie's conflict...

Does Locker 14 Hold the Venom Suit?

In the 'Ultimate Spider-Man' comic books, Locker 14 at Oscorp held the Venom suit. Originally intended as a cure for cancer, the Venom suit actually turned its wearer into a psychotic killing machine. A hint for the savvy reader? Webb's tweet included #happybirthday, presumably intended for Dane DeHaan, whose birthday was Feb. 6. Will the next movie set-up Harry Osborne to be Venom in a follow-up film?

Actually, the presence of the Venom suit in 'Amazing Spider-Man 2,' or its set-up for inclusion in a follow-up, makes some degree of sense. We already know Rhino will be a villain in the sequel, and he's the result of an experiment to fuse an impenetrable exo-skin to a human test subject. That will inevitably go awry. Maybe the Venom suit will be the second attempt at creating an invincible skin-graft — and this is the machine to do it.

This shot of "Phil the Camera Operator" shows that 'Spider-Man' will be shot, at least in part, on traditional 35 mm film stock. Director Marc Webb included the hashtag #anamorphic to further indicate the use of non-digital tech during the shoot. But if it's being shot in 35mm, will the sequel be in 3D? Sony has not yet commented.

As if the casting of Dane DeHaan as tech mogul Norman Osborne's son Harry wasn't indication already, this shot confirms that Oscorp will figure centrally in the plot of the new film. Whether that means Norman himself will appear as the Green Goblin or at all (as he was a major component of the original, yet managed to stay completely hidden).

In The Amazing Spider-Man, Peter had to deal with both The Lizard and the NYPD, who believed he was just as diabolical as the reptilian terrorist. This time, is problems only appear to be getting worse: the FBI is on his tail. Er, spindle?

Franklin D. Roosevelt?

Why does Marc Webb have a Post-It note mosaic of FDR hanging up somewhere on the ASM2 set? This could be goofy production design or a hint. In the comics, a certain female protagonist was dangled from a bridge before... well, let's just say there is/was an FDR Bridge in New York City.
