The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Daily Bugle viral website posted a new story today, revealing that the NYPD and the Mayor's office will not file criminal charges against OsCorp Industries, as a result of the Lizard's rampage in The Amazing Spider-Man. Check out the full report from Bugle reporter Ken Ellis, which provides some interesting hints that could relate to Jamie Foxx's Electro.

In a joint statement, the New York City Police Department and the Mayor's office officially closed their investigation into gross and systematic ethics abuses at Oscorp Industries. Shockingly, the investigation resulted in no discovery of criminal mischief or charges filed, despite the indisputable fact that a lizard man rampaged through the city last year, causing millions of dollars in damage.
The closing of the investigation comes amidst rumors that Oscorp threatened to rescind the discounts they are providing the city for the completion of the new prototype power station.
The grand opening of the Oscorp Power Grid on the Lower East Side of Manhattan is planned for April 16. The grid is expected to provide renewable, clean electromagnetic energy to the city and reduce costs to consumers by forty percent - if it doesn't blow up the city first, of course.
Of course, this power grid will eventually become the source of Electro's power, which he uses to battle Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield), since the villain is seen drawing electricity directly from underground power lines in previously-released footage.
Last month, another Daily Bugle post revealed that OsCorp was ending its cross-species genetics research, following the guilty verdict levied against Dr. Curt Connors, played by Rhys Ifans in The Amazing Spider-Man.
