The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Chris Cooper has already confirmed that he is coming back for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 as Norman Osborn. Today, the actor revealed that his introduction in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is rather strange, alluding to the formation of the Sinister Six.
"Amazing Spider-Man 2 was an introduction to Norman, and - you'll see - an extremely odd introduction, which apparently will lead to something more."
When the actor was asked what he knew about the Sinister Six, he said he was "vaguely" aware of the direction the filmmakers are taking the franchise.
"They sent me some material. But they said also that this Spider-Man is its own Spider-Man. We're just kind of starting from the beginning."
While the Sinister Six hasn't been confirmed by Sony Pictures yet for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, Paul Giamatti, who plays Rhino in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 issued a similar statement at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall.
"And I believe there's a lot of stage-setting for the next film. There are several villains in this movie, and some of them are more foreground and important. Jamie Foxx is and stuff. A couple of us are more hanging around the background because I think there will be a bigger deal. I don't actually know, but that seems to be what they're doing. I'm not an idiot either, but I can't claim hard and fast knowledge of this. I won't. I can't because I don't actually know, but you and I can speculate."
