Credits Sting

Just in case you missed it in the cinema, here’s a brief overview of the credit sting at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man – a credit sting with starts off with the now incarcerated Curt Connors being led into his prison cell.

Lightning flashes, thunder rolls. Could this be an allusion to Spider-Man’s electricity-loving enemy, Electro, a character rumoured to be played by Jamie Foxx in the sequel? Sure, why not.

A shadowy figure emerges: Norman Osborn, one presumes. From the looks of this screenshot, he looks a little like Tom Waits, though of course he’s not – that would be silly.

It’s interesting to note that Oscorp’s power reaches so far that its seriously sick leader can wangle his way into a locked prison cell with a recently jailed half-man, half-lizard who used to work for him.

As the two talk, the camera rests on Osborn’s gnarled fingers.

Osborn: “Hello doctor. Did you tell the boy?”

Connors: “Tell him what?”

Osborn: “Did you tell the boy the truth about his father?”

Connors: “No.”

Osborn: “Well that’s very good. We’ll let him be for now.”

Connors (pausing, then shouting): “You should leave him alone!”

As Osborn turns to leave, a lightning flash illuminates his back, giving us our best look at him. Of course, there’s no guarantee whoever played him in this credits sting will do so in the sequel, but it’s worth noting how they're trying to craft this all-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful character physically... by making him look a bit like Tom Waits (from the back, anyway). 

 

Incidentally, The Amazing Spider-Man is out now on Blu-ray & DVD from Sony Pictures Entertainment. Which is how we got a hold of a copy, you see.

So regarding the shadowy figure at the end scene I wanted to know who it was. After watching the movie it began to drive me crazy. So I began to do some investigation after about an hour on Google I came up with nothing. But as I kept reading I found an interview with the guy who played "the lizard" he mentioned that all tho the shadowy character was not Norman Osborne, he was employed at Oscorp. Now in the amazing Spiderman video game one of the villains was Alistair smythe, who was employed at oscorp. Now I might be reaching here but judging from what the lizard said in the interview could it not be that the shadowy figure could be Alistar Smythes father!????? Who knows aha just thought id share what I found aha More

3 Surprisingly Good
Probably because the less than enthusiastic reviews, I was actually pleasantly surprised by this film. I'd also argue it's better than any of Raimi's efforts by some margin. I'm not a massive Andrew Garfield fan, but he was better in the role than Tobey Maguire and Emma Stone knocks the spots off Kirsten "charisma vacum" Dunst any day of the week. I also liked how he was more Spider like in this film i.e. more wall crawling and web antics such as the web in the sewer to detect the Lizard when he made a move. Was this reboot really needed? No not really, but that doesn't make it a bad film and I'll happily watch the sequel now. More

Watched this again over the weekend and it has grown on me. Not the best spiderman film, that's Spiderman 2, but the best Spiderman performance for sure. Shame some of these were deleted. The fact that Dr Ratha disappears halfway through the film is too big a mistake for a film that is released in a world where everyone is on the internet picking the film to pieces as soon as they've watched it. Also thought something would come of turning the SWAT team into Lizards as well. But nothing More

6 It will take more than deleted scenes to improve this film!
They should have included the Sam Raimi version of Spiderman, because frankly this Garfield and Webb reboot is the worst superhero movie ever! If you have trouble sleeping, buy this DVD, it will put you in a coma! More
