The Amazing Spider-Man
Once again, the viral marketing campaign that is The Daily Bugle tumblr is teasing potential villains. Previously, it teased details in article about Oscorp. Now, it has one on the"trial" of Dr. Curt Connors. It's titled "Cold-Blooded Killer?" and reads:
A trial date has been set in the New York Appellate Court for alleged bio-terrorist Dr. Curt Connors. The former Oscorp biogenetics scientist has been indicted on twenty city and state counts, including trespassing, malicious destruction of property, theft of private property, aggravated assault, and using a weapon of mass destruction. Connors has pleaded “not guilty” to all counts. It is expected his defense attorney, Anne Weying, will claim Connors was not responsible for the actions of his genetically transformed alter ego, the Lizard.
Connors claimed that pressure placed on him by his employer, Oscorp, led him to rush his bio-restorative formula and test it on himself. He further stipulated to the grand jury that his decision to use the untested compound was made in an effort to protect the company from experimenting on innocent civilians, as directed by his superiors. Connors’ immediate supervisor at Oscorp, Dr. Rajit Ratha, has been missing since the day before the Lizard’s attack.
Oscorp spokesman, Donald Menken, responded, “We can’t corroborate or deny Dr. Connor’s claims. Dr. Ratha’s abrupt departure from Oscorp has left us with far more questions than answers. Needless to say, Oscorp has always complied with the most stringent local, state and federal regulations for all of our research and development.”
The mentions of Ned Leeds and Anne Weying obviously stand out, as they are the names of the Hobgolblin and She-Venom's alter egos. We already know that Paul Giamatti's Rhino is slated for the third movie AND the last tumblr article hinted at Spencer Smythe and the Spider-Slayers. So are these viral campaigns actually hinting at the Sinister Six, or just including Easter eggs for in-the-know fans? [via Comic Book.com]
