Did you love The Amazing Spider-Man 2? Did you hate it? Regardless of which side of the fence you find yourself on, there were still a lot of notable moments in Marc Webb’s sequel which you may or may not have picked up on depending how well versed you are with the comic books!
Some were hard to spot, while others a little more difficult to notice due to the fact that they passed by so quickly. With Venom and Sinister Six both on the horizon – not to mention The Amazing Spider-Man 3 – there was a lot to see, so be sure to let us know if we’ve missed anything below.
Needless to say, there are some major spoilers ahead…
10. J. Jonah Jameson
Ok, so you probably didn’t miss this one (unless you made an ill-timed bathroom break), but it’s still very interesting to consider what the Easter egg means for both this instalment and the next. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 makes it clear that Peter Parker is now working for The Daily Bugle, and you may have even noticed that some emails from the newspaper publisher were classic J. Jonah Jameson as he insulted the photos and tried to rip Peter off. So, why didn’t we actually see him?
Well, the sequel was already busy enough, and Marc Webb is more than likely still worried about reintroducing the character after J.K. Simmons’ memorable portrayal across Sam Raimi’s trilogy. However, this direct reference is hopefully a way of opening the door to a new interpretation in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, and with Gwen Stacy no longer in the picture, the supporting Bugle cast would be a fresh addition!
