The Amazing Spider Man 2: Colm Feore Is The Vulture!

vt Colm Feore, who played the "Frost Giant" Laufey in Thor, will play another memorable Marvel villain in Sony Pictures' The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Comic Book Movie reveals that Feore's up until now mysterious character is that of Adrian Toomes, a businessman who develops a flight harness and later goes on to become the winged antagonist The Vulture. He is a baddie from the classic Stan Lee era of Spider-Man, one of Peter Parker's web-slinging alter-ego's early foes, and one that Sam Raimi wanted to focus a movie around with the unrealised Spider-Man 4 (John Malkovich was even cast as Toomes before Raimi left and Sony rebooted). The Vulture then is yet another villain in a movie that is already packed with many of Peter Parker's most fearsome foes, including Electro (Jamie Foxx), Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and the intriguing casting of Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn, who could well become The Green Goblin before the final credits role on this sequel. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will also see the re-introduction of major Spidey characters Mary Jane Watson and Harry Osborne, and with so many characters being cast in this movie, some fans may be reminded of Spider Man 3 and how Sony bit off more than they could chew. Now we are all for Adrian Toomes appearing in the Spider-Man film universe, but perhaps The Vulture doesn't need to take flight just yet. Hopefully Marc Webb knows what he is doing and he is playing the long-game with some of these villains, and clearly the plan seems to be to build up to The Sinister Six. We expect that Toomes will just be a businessman in this movie likely working for Oscorp. The previously released set picture released below shows Feore at Ravencroft, perhaps looking for other criminals that Osborn can recruit for cross species genetics. feore spidery So what do you think? Do you think Feore is a good fit for Adrian Toomes? What do you think of seeing The Vulture on screen? And here's an interesting one, if this indeed is The Sinister Six forming (Green Goblin, Vulture, Electro, Rhino and possibly Lizard) what villain do you want to see as the sixth member?
