Marc Webb Suggests New Villains For Amazing Spider-Man Sequel

The Amazing Spider-Man has only started showing in theatres, and it’s not receiving the same kind of praise that the movies on the Disney/Marvel side are getting, but director Marc Webb is already thinking of a potential sequel and, with tongue firmly placed in his cheek, even thought of a villain that he’d like to see go toe to toe with the web crawler:

“I do think it would be tricky to totally invent a major villain, but if I did that it would be The Mime,” he told THR. “My big contribution would be a villain called The Mime. That’s a joke, by the way. A joke.”

Since we’re not going to see the Mime anytime soon, Webb offered a real suggestion on a possible sequel’s villain:

“I think you have to be pretty protective of the canon when it comes to villains,” he said. “And Spider-Man has a great rogues gallery, so there’s a lot to choose from. I wanted to create a universe that works in and of itself for one movie, but I wanted to create a universe that not only can withstand but anticipate future storylines,” he said. “Movies like this tend to have sequels, [though] ultimately the audience will tell us if they want one. But I kind of thought it was an interesting thing to anticipate those storylines and think about the backstories and how we can parlay those into an ongoing story.”
