According to a post by the Amazing Spider-Man 2 director, Marc Webb, on Twitter, B.J. Novak of The Office, will be playing A. Smythe.
Now, A. Smythe is most likely referencing Alistair Smythe, who becomes the Ultimate Spider Slayer in the comics. I tell you what, Sony is cramming as many villains as possible into this movie. We have already seen Electro, Rhino, and Green Goblin, with hints of Doc Ock and the Vulture.
Now, the Spider Slayer too (maybe). Spidey sure has the odds stacked against him. And Sony is really prepping for the next onslaught of Spidey movies (and possible spin-offs). Thx MTV for the news.
