What better way is there to start your morning than with a slew of new material from The Amazing Spider-Man 2? First up, MTV has a new featurette where director Marc Webb, Jamie Foxx and Andrew Garfield share their thoughts about the Sinister Six, a group which Andrew Garfield calls "the Avengers for villains." In addition, we also have two TV spots, concept art images, the latest Daily Bugle viral story which references Venom and Carnage, and information about when The Sinister Six spin-off may hit theaters.

The latest Daily Bugle viral story (via Yahoo! Movies) teases the inclusion of villains Venom, who we know is already getting his own spin-off, and Carnage, a.k.a. Cletus Kasady, an escaped serial killer who was apprehended by the FBI. Take a look at the full story from Eddie Brock, a.k.a. Venom.
By Eddie Brock
The greater New York tri-state area got a whole lot safer yesterday. Captured late last night, Cletus Kasady, escaped serial killer and notorious redhead, was eerily calm and subdued when he eagerly surrendered to the FBI. The manhunt for the FBI's Most Wanted felon ended innocuously in a small strip mall outside of New Rochelle, New York.
A barista at a local coffee shop recognized Kasady and eventually called the police. The barista apologized to reporters later admitting she didn't immediately alert authorities hoping Spider-Man would beat them to the scene. "What can I say? I am a HUGE fan."
Kasady had been sentenced to twelve life sentences for the twelve murders he committed - but escaped while being transported between federal prisons. Sources say Kasady has been remanded to Ravencroft Institute for further interrogation until he is relocated to a maximum security federal prison. While the barista didn't get her wish, we know Spider-Man thanks her... as we all do. For now it appears that Kasady won't be causing any more carnage.
Of course, it remains to be seen whether or not Carnage or Venom will actually be appearing in next month's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In the comic books, after Spider-Man defeats Venom, he is sent to prison, where he shares a cell with Kasady, who becomes infected by his own Symbiote and transforms into Carnage. If anything, this viral story sets up the fact that Kasady/Carnage is behind bars, but it isn't known exactly when he will meet up with Brock/Venom in this movie universe.
"Before we know what we do with Spider-Man 4, we're going to do Sinister Six, Venom and Spider-Man 3. There is going to be a lot of crossover in those movies. So we're just not at Spider-Man 4, because we still have a whole other Spider-Man movie and two other movies. So we don't know yet what [Spider-Man 4] is going to be."
The producer also confirmed there will be another Spider-Man movie released in May of 2018 but it's, "not necessarily an Amazing Spider-Man movie."
