The anticipation is growing as the date of May 2nd comes nearer for Spider-Man fans! The movie has already received positive feedback: it’s stylish, filled with action, and we get to see Peter develop even further as our web-shooting hero.
We’ll see some familiar faces such as Green Goblin, Oscorp company, and Harry Osborne, but also some not-previously-shown characters will share the silver screen with Spider-Man and Gwen Stacey. Let’s meet them:
1) Electro – Our featured character in this post! After being saved by Spider-Man, this engineer working at Oscorp starts to make his own heroic identity after a lab accident with eels.
2) The Rhino – Paul Giamatti plays this Russian mobster who is given a delightfully “hammy” Russian accent, which he said he enjoyed creating.
3) Venom – A symbiotic extra-terrestrial life form that played a huge role in Spider-Man 3, needing a host to fully function. It is unsure whether or not He may make a more prominent appearance in later films.
4) Lizard – It is somewhat unclear (at this point in time) how big of a role Lizard will have in the Amazing Spider-Man 2. It has been speculated that he will be a very prominent character in future installments involving Spider-Man, though.
It is also rumored that Stan Lee, the co-creator, will make a cameo appearance as well.

The days approach to when the Winter Soldier comes to theaters! As the Cap returns to the screen with the Battle of New York behind him, we see him trying to adjust to modern society. We are going to see some returning favorites: Black Widow and Nick Fury, but there will also be two new faces as well! Let’s meet them:
1) Alexander Pierce
Possibly substituted for the man who controls the Winter Solider in the comics, Aleksander Lukin, Pierce is the head of the World Security Council. He is a former S.H.I.E.L.D. member and a friend of Nick Fury’s.
2) The Winter Soldier
Believed to be dead and killed in action, James Barnes (or “Bucky”), returns as a brainwashed super soldier at the bidding of Pierce. Sebastian Stan, who plays the Winter Soldier, remarked that he wanted to dive into any kind of material (reading, watching, etc) from the Soviet spy era in order to prepare for his role. Stan also talks about Barnes as a developed character: “You know, the truth of the situation is although he looks very different and there’s different things about him, it still comes from the same person. I think you’ll get to see that no matter what. I think part of my goal here was to make sure that you see an extension of that version but just a different color of that same version in a way. I think he’s still the same guy; he’s cut from the same cloth.”
The Winter Soldier is our featured character on this post, and we’re going to be offering the Winter Soldier series of costumes for fans to bring the movie to life!
