Sony has no problem releasing new images for the next installment of their ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ franchise and today they have released 9 new photos to tantalize us over the film. We’ve got a couple of great shots of everyone’s favorite wallcrawler, a couple of shots of Paul Giamatti‘s (‘John Dies at the End’) Rhino driving a truck (and boy doesn’t he look happy driving it in the second shot?), a shot of someone mysterious in a hoodie (I”m guessing Jamie Foxx‘s Electro skulking around), a couple shots of the film being made, and a shot of Stan Lee on set.
Finally, the important shot: The one where we see a Sinister 6 sign on the side of a building.
Is this just the team’s amusing way of showing off their love for Spider-Man by naming a set or location after the villainous team that Peter Parker has to face off against? Is it a misdirection to get us all thinking about the Sinister 6 instead of another villain they are going to toss our way? Or is this all a setup for the end of this or the next film where we are going to actually see them form?
It’s too early to tell, but one thing is for certain. They are absolutely pushing the Sinister 6 in teasers and I can’t imagine it would be for no reason at all. What is your guess that it will mean? Are we getting a tease of the Sinister 6 or will it be completely unrelated and just an Easter egg?

In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Chris Cooper, Paul Giamatti, Colm Feore, and Sally Field is set to hit theaters in 3D on May 2, 2014.
