Theory on Twitter photos releases for the sequelThe symbiote crash-landed during FDR's presidency◊ and was taken into FBI custody◊. Recently, Oscorp was being contracted to study it. The scientists assigned with this task? Richard Parker and Eddie Brock Sr.◊ It's very likely that thing Richard was worried about the night Peter was left with May and Ben.
Gwen is gonna die.Given that Emma Stone said for a while that her character arc is going to closely follow the comics, what is Gwen Stacy most famous for... Yeah. Maybe she shouldn't have said that...
Harry doesn't become a GoblinBut rather Venom, much like his Ultimate Spider-Man incarnation.
The Goblin's suit from the poster◊ is only a prototypeIn the third movie, Norman's insanity will lead to him modifying it for a more...theatrical, design. Something like this◊. (I couldn't find a good picture from Marvel Adventures Spider-Man #34)
Felicia Hardy, aka Black Cat, will be in this movie.
The various villains will fight each other, with Electro coming out on top.Remember all the criticism Spider-Man 3 got for having too many bad guys? This movie will try to fix that problem by thinning the plot out so that Electro firmly take the spotlight. And some Evil vs. Evil action makes an excellent excuse for that. Green Goblin and Rhino are there mostly to set up sequels. As for why Electro would win: he's a guy who can command electricity. Rhino wears Powered Armor and the Green Goblin relies heavily on gadgets. Do the math.
If Norman Osborn becomes the Green Goblin, he will use his Ultimate Marvel look.Mostly because it makes him visually distinctive from his son, who appears to be using the more mainstream Goblin look. The filmmakers can do things with Ultimate Goblin that they couldn't do with Mainstream Goblin.
Harry isn't the GREEN GoblinMore like Hobgoblin or Proto-Goblin. Norman is just letting him test out the gear.
Peter's promise to George will haunt him here, leading to Gwen being Spared by the Adaptation(First note that I'm operating under the belief that the Goblin pictured is not Harry; I personally can't see why people think its him; it looks more like Norman's actor wearing make-up then it does Harry's) (Second note, this is also what I chose to do since Gwen's death is a serious Women in Refrigerators, and while it brought on the best point in comics, the Bronze Age, it also started one of the worst clichés in comics; this idea serves as a compromise) Throughout the film Peter will be plagued by guilt over his continued relationship with Gwen; he can't bear to hurt her by breaking up with her but he doesn't want her to be in danger, and as such is getting slightly over-protective. During the film, after dispatching Rhino, Peter will confront Norman, discovering he's now Goblin-ized. They'll fight, and during this Norman manages to grab Gwen and take her to the bridge. However, Peter will save her and be forced to abandon to fight to do so; as he goes, Gobby will taunt him about what's happened to Max Dillon, and after securing Gwen, Peter goes to deal with Electro. In the end, Peter has no proof of Norman's Goblin side, and will be forced to deal with him another time; but, to protect Gwen, who's severely traumatized by what happened, he breaks her heart and she goes to live under Witness Protection due to her ordeal with the Goblin. To make it symbolic, their break-up will happen on the same bridge, so while she lives, their relationship 'dies' there.
The Fourth Film will be Sinister SixThe third film will deal with Norman's Goblin, with Doc Ock and Vulture popping up as Co-Dragons, but the fourth film will have Ock ascend to Big Bad status and form the Sinister Six: Himself, Vulture, Electro, Rhino, and newly introduced villains Chameleon and Scorpion (or possible Kraven, a re-Lizardized Lizard, or maybe Black Cat as an Anti-Villain Vampy love interest or any two other villains), as he plans to steal control codes for prototype drones from Oscorp, and Take Over the World. It will be epic.
The Third Film will be about the Sinister Six and the Fourth Film will be about VenomAnother theory is that in the third film after Spider-man defeats Goblin, Electro and Rhino the Goblin (whoever it is) decides he didn't have enough forces to defeat Spider-man so he engineers the creation of Doctor Octopus and Vulture, breaks Doctor Connors out of jail and forces him to become the Lizard to be the sixth member of his ranks. Remember in the full trailer when Spider-man says one day he will come across a threat he won't be able to defeat under his own power? With the sinister six being that threat Spider-man will have to find a way to increase his power to stop them from taking over the city so he breaks into Oscorp and finds the Venom symbiote. With this new suit he manages to beat the sinister six but does something he regrets (probably killing one of them) and after they are beaten he tears the suit off him and it attaches to whomever they want Venom to be in this film series. The fourth film will then have solely Spider-man vs Venom with Venom trying to ruin Spider-man's life by killing those he cares about and/or trying to reproduce his symbiote to infect everyone in New York City like in Spider-Man: Web of Shadows.
General spin-off ideas.Sony has said that they want to make their own film universe to compete with the MCU. Here's just a place for random ideas.
Harry will be Green Goblin I. Norman will be Green Goblin II in Amazing Spider-Man 3.In reverse of the comics, Harry will be the first Green Goblin, and probably very briefly given that Electro is supposed to be the main primary antagonist. Norman, evidently still dying in this movie, will have the cure Oscorp has been trying to create by the third film, but it will drive him insane, give him powers, and/or mutate him.
General speculation for how the rest of the series will go.ASM 2 will end with Gwen Stacy dying in a Heroic Sacrifice, thereby paying tribute to the comics while still giving Gwen some more agency in the matter. All three of the villains (with the possible exception of Harry Osborn) will be arrested and sent to Ravencroft Institute - the same facility where Connors was sent - for psychological evaluation and treatment. As a big ending twist, it's then revealed that Ravencroft Institute is actually a front for Oscorp, which fully intends to keep using the supervillains to their own ends. All of the supervillains are the results of various, mad science cures Norman had been developing for his condition, based on the research of Richard Parker.
The Green Goblin, whoever he will be, will be the Bigger BadHe'll mostly just manipulate things like Electro and Rhino from behind the scenes. He'll only have one brief fight with Spidey, as seen in the trailer, but otherwise remain in the shadows.
The relationship between Spider-Man and his enemies is an alternate Avengers.Spider-Man, like Loki, is the catalyst that leads to the formation of a team that opposes him. Doctor Octopus will be like Nick Fury trying to get the team together. Curtis Connors/Lizard, like Bruce Banner/Hulk, is a scientist who turned into a big, green creature. Norman Osborn/Green Goblin will be like Tony Stark/Iron Man since he has his own company and advanced technology. Also, he was the Iron Patriot in the comics. Electro will have electric powers like Thor. Rhino will be big and tough to fight like Captain America. Vulture will be like Hawkeye since their names reference birds. Venom, who is black with spider powers, will be like Black Widow. Stan Lee will have a cameo saying, "Supervillains in New York? Give me a break!"
Peter will get his job at The Daily BugleIt's been confirmed that Peter's journalism career will factor into the tie-in video game.
The Green Goblin is a Peter Parker clone.I mean, he kind of looks like Andrew Garfield.
All we've seen of the Goblin so far is supposed to be blurryClearly there's something they don't want us to know.
Based on the trailers, after the first battle with Spidey in Times Square, Electro is approached by Green Goblin and they team upElectro is the Disc One Final Boss at the power plant, and Green Goblin is the final villain of the movie.
The Sequel Hook will feature Miles MoralesAnd he will be played by Donald Glover. With a full team up in Amazing Spider-Man 3.
The Green Goblin is a Semi-Lizard.The cure for Norman's disease will be a slightly more stable version of Connors' formula, which he'll test on Harry. Given Harry's appearance in the posters, evidently the serum still wasn't quite ready.
Gwen Stacey won't die.The social media advertising has been putting an odd amount of focus on Gwen and paying prices and stuff like that, and promotion hasn't shied away from showing her in the iconic outfit from the comic where she dies> It's a little suspicious to put so much focus on her dying before the movie is out...
The American release will have an additional stingerIt happened with The Avengers, and an important scene for the future of the franchise was filmed, but was not included in the international cut of the movie. What if Marc Webb wanted to save the plot twist for the last release of the movie to generate more discussion after the initial spoilers for the movie got out?
Norman Osborn faked his deathNot being able to legally under go human testing on the spider venom despite Spider-man being massive evidence it will work and running out of time, Norman informs Harry and fakes his death so Harry will try the venom and Norman can observe the effects.
Amazing Spider-Man 4 will adapt the Clone Saga.Amazing Spider-Man 3 will end with Harry's death. In the fourth movie, it will be revealed that Norman faked his death, and he will seek revenge against Peter for Harry's death, so he will mastermind the clone saga.
Aunt May knows that Peter is Spider-ManGiven various pieces of dialogue between the two, it seems very likely.
Captain Stacy's ghost was really haunting PeterIt wasn't all in the mind.
Captain Stacy's ghost is not a ghostcaptain stacy is not dead, anymore. he has been resurrected as morlun. who after mostly lucking in the background will be the villain for movie 5.
Like with the last two films, someone close to Peter will die near the end of the third movieWith Captain Stacy dying in the first film's climax, and Gwen Stacy dying as well near the end of the second film, I wonder if Aunt May will be the next to die, and one of the last scenes in the third movie will be her funeral.
The third film will feature the plotline of issue #144
This continuity's version of Doc Ock will be Carolyn Trainer (Lady Ock), not Otto Octavius.
Harry isn't Norman's son, he's his clone.Norman doesn't seem to have a wife, nor Harry a mother. Norman decided to hedge his bets if a cure wasn't found and started looking into cloning technologies. He abandoned this when it was found out that his condition was genetic and any clone would share his degenerative disease.
Harry didn't inherit Norman's disease, he was given it.Harry doesn't seem to get sick until after he places the drive on his neck and afterwards there's a sickly discolored rash there. Norman knew his time was running out so he intentionally gave his son his disease in order to motivate him into finding a cure while his body was placed in stasis.
The series will have a crossover with the X-Men movies.It's pretty much what follows logically from The Stinger - come on, despite the bizarre Executive Meddling reason for it, there's no way this couldn't have at least come to mind with either series' creative team. And with this movie's mixed reviews and not-so-amazing box office performance, Sony will probably have to team up with Fox if it wants any hope of matching the MCU's success. A "Spider-Man vs. Wolverine" movie would essentially be Marvel's Alternate Company Equivalent of Superman vs. Batman, but let's hope they put Bryan Singer in charge rather than ASM2's creative team.
Lineup of the Sinister SixHarry's plans involve creating the Sinister Six using Oscorp's special projects division, and so far there has been several teases about who could be in the group. The Creative Closing Credits from the phone app tie-in seem to reveal who is in the lineup, but then studio representatives said the lineup was not finalised yet. Possible members could be:
The "Paranoia" voices in the soundtrack when Electro appears are not just parts of the songs......but Max's thoughts being projected out of electronic devices in the area. During the Times Square fight, after Max is shot by the sniper, the song starts with "He lied to me...he shot at me...he hates me...he's using me...", and Spidey says "Stay with me, Max!". He could hear the voices, and knew Max was beginning to lose it.
The Sinister Six will be:
Felicia is already the Black CatThe whole "secretary" thing is just a cover while she hacks Oscorp's bank accounts
The man sent to kill Peter's parents was The FinisherFor anyone unfamiliar with the character (which isn't hard at all), he was an assassin sent to kill Peter Parker in the comics by the Communist Red Skull, Albert Malik. And he ended up getting killed by his own missile in a battle with Spider -Man. Now, why do I bring this up...because his real name is Karl Fiers, and The Gentleman's real name? Gustav Fiers, the two were brothers, and Karl was one of the few people Gustav actually cared about. With this in mind, Mark Webb said to watch out for The Gentleman, so could it be that he personally wants revenge on Peter because his parents killed his brother?
Rhino will be defeated and not part of the Sinister Six.The third movie will continue from the ending and have Spider-Man pone Rhino quickly, preventing him from being a Sinister Six member. And then he will never be seen again.
When J. Jonah Jameson appears eventually, it will be a Stan Lee cameo.Stan Lee already had a cameo in this movie, so showing Jameson would have confused people.
J. Jonah Jameson is an AI.Much like some versions of Jarvis from Iron Man.
Felicia Hardy will become this series' incarnation of the Vulture (i.e. the Vulturess).Because that's honest-to-God what was going to happen in the Raimi films had they continued on with Spider-Man 4. All of the buildup to Toomes traditionally taking up the title will be a Red Herring (that, or he's quickly indisposed and Felicia becomes his distaff successor), and, to give this crackpot theory the ever so slightest degree of plausibility, Felicia was on good terms (relatively speaking) with Harry before his meltdown hit full-swing, so maybe that'll be his way of "rewarding" her. Managing to actually make this utter peculiarity of a What Could Have Been work would be a stupendously hilarious show of one-upmanship against the original trilogy.
Dr. Kafka is actually Otto Octavious.Notice how Kafka is way more interested in the science of Max's powers than his actual mental well-being. Almost as if he's not a doctor in the psychiatric field. Maybe the real Kafka was suspended or detained, and Octavious borrowed her security access credentials to infiltrate Ravencroft and study Max for Oscorp. If the authorities found out, records would show that Kafka headed the project, and the real Kafka would either be held responsible for illegal human experimentation, or not found suspicious at all due to her employment at the facility.
