Jamie Foxx looks like a neon lit mutant from the Omega Man.

Three major villains in only the second film? This really feels like they are throwing too many eggs at one basket. This couldn't possibly go wrong... surely?
Atleast you can tell the Electro character is going to be relatable and gritty, I mean look at him wearing that hoody like a regular joe on the street. They've clearly really nailed a sense of relevance to modern culture. Fantastic.

I don't think it matters how many villains are in a piece, I do think people need too get over what happened in Spiderman 3. That film didn't work as an additional character was thrown in at the last minute and it was just badly written, directed and acted - it would have been shit even if Venom hadn't of turned up at the last minute. Other films have pulled off multiple villains and characters with aplomb (The Dark Knight Rises, Avengers, X-Men 2 etc) so there is no reason too suspect this won't be any different...*crosses fingers and closes eyes really tight*

My fears for this sequel have sadly been realised 3 villains in and the Rhino looks like...a mechanical rhino oh dear lord no put him on a military exo skeleton developed by Oscorp to keep the human element in place and from what i have seen from the trailer( ahem) too much slapstick comedy instead of witty one liners like in the first movie please please please Gods of Marvel let me be wrong... Nufff Said !

the screen shots look awesome, but the main poster is still leaving me upset, Rhino in a Robot suit is fine, google ultimate Rhino and you'll understand - but goblin, I don't mind him making a cameo but leave it at a cameo don't try and make him a main villain, unless this isn't Green Goblin but Hob Goblin or Proto Goblin

I've not got that much against spiderman 3, I don't think the multiple villains was the problem with the film at all, it just didn't help. What is disconcerting about this is the whole 'spiderman's biggest fight ever!!!!' thing. Surely he's not been spiderman for much more than a year? There isn't going to be enough of a build up to something like that, it just seems like they're desperately trying to make it 'epic' to compete with films like the avengers, and have crammed what would have made more sense stretched over several films, into one installment, which is the follow up to a film that barely held together as it was. Considering how poor the villain was in the first film, it's reasonable to suggest that it may be a stretch too far to expect to pull off three such significant villains in the sequel with a great enough degree of integrity and narrative sophistication to make them all engaging.
Concerning the three films you've mentioned, in the Dark Knight Rises there was only focus on one major villain through most of the film, and the roots of the villains involved had been planted in Batman Begins. In Avengers there had been a whole series of individual films developing characters and building the universe, justifying a significantly expansive involvement of events and villainous characters in the Avengers itself, but, like Rises, focus was mostly just on one villain. X-Men 2 however, is crap either way.
I'm not suggesting a 3 villain plot can't be done successfully, but given the context of this film and how it's presenting itself, there doesn't seem to be a vast amount of hope that such success will occur here. Then again, there's always some hope, no matter how small, for everything.
