The news starts with an actor named Colm Feore, who you might remember from recent roles in television’s Revolution or The Borgias. Comic Book Movie is reporting that they have it “100% confirmed” that he’s been cast in director Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in the role of Adrian Toomes, who longtime Spidey fans know better as the winged and persnickety super villain, the Vulture. What exactly Toomes is going to be up to in the movie, well that’s the part you’re going to have to click through to read.
Apparently this isn’t just going to be a case where Feore shows up in a brief scene where a bit player portraying a waiter gives him a coffee and says, “Here you go, Mr. Toomes,” while winking at the camera. No, Feore’s role will reportedly be a substantial one, where he full-on becomes the Vulture and ends up doing battle with Spidey.
That’s not the end of the news here though. CBM has some spy reports that say that not only is Chris Cooper going to be playing Norman Osborn in this movie, but that by the end of the film he’s going to go full-on Green Goblin in order to do battle with the wall crawler, as well. Throw in Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Paul Giamatti’s Rhino, and what you have is the first four members of the Sinister Six, who are planned to be fully formed and ready to take on May Parker’s beloved nephew by the time The Amazing Spider-Man 3 comes along.
