While scenes had been shot that showcased Oscorp's Dr. Rajit Ratha's (Irrfan Khan) death at the hands of the Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man, they were shuffled off to the special features section of the Blu-ray and in no way considered part of the actual narrative. Some assumed that this gapping plot hole in the story meant Ratha might be back in the sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, in theaters this summer. Now, though, The Daily Bugle viral Tumblr has confirmed that the malicious doctor is quite dead. We can only guess what did him in. Read on for details.
