I still believe they have no idea where they want to take it in the sequel so they made that end credit scene as vague as possible.

Like you said they made it hard to tell on purpose, other Marvel movies it was quite evident what the endings alluded to.

Rhys Ifans did say though it is NOT Norman Osborn... but someone employed within Oscorp.

The actor, Michael Massee (guy who killed Bruce Lee's son while filming the Crow on accident) is the dark figure, here is his headshot

So if it can't be Osborn - and knowing that Michael Massee is not the actor that played Peter's father, we can rule out those two.

Then based on just the looks of Michael Massee - it could be nearly any other villain, that works for Oscorp and was involved in whatever tragedy resulted in the disappearances/deaths of Peter's parents.

Eh, just because it's Masse doesn't mean it'll be him in the sequel at all. His face wasn't visible at all so in the sequel, they can make it the Beyonder played by Bruce Willis if they wanted to.

I doubt it, why cast talent like Massee, when they could literally use anyone. His specialty is villainous/evil characters with raspy voices...they certainly are planning on something with him.

Although certain things fit like Eddie Brock Sr.'s involvement with Richard Parker in the Ultimates version of Spidey - cross-genetics mumbo jumbo.. that story fits in well with this movie - maybe Massee might have an appearance in the Venom movie...

As you said it, it's his voice and that might be what they wanted to feature most. They know you won't see the guys face so they probably just wanted to have that voice for more presence. It doesn't necessarily mean he will be in the sequel unless there is a report of him signing a multi-film contract.

Plus Ifan never said it wasn't Osborne, he just said that it was an Osborne employee or staff, which technically can still be Osborne.

What will you guys feel if the filmmakers decided to put up an original villain? In which case the cinema establishes its own canon apart from the comics. Has such approach been done (successfully)?

If you guys have a chance, check out the new Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon. Its ridiculously corny but it completely nails the smart ass Spider-Man aspect.

Seen it, I can't stand the format where he keeps breaking the fourth wall. It's more annoying that funny.

Terrible idea considering SpiderMan has one of the best rogue gallery of villains in the comic book world, only Batman has arguably a better villain selection but even that is a very close call.

It can be. But the show nails the smartaleck attitude. Give it a few more episodes if you only made it past the first few.

Even though it's annoying, I have seen all the episodes. Story isn't really bad and if they cut out the breaking the 4th wall or just tone that part down and just be a smart-ass in real-time, it can be one of the best SM cartoons out there. I don't mind the art either and I usually hate it when they are a bit too cartoony.

Call me crazy but I loved the villains in the Batman Beyond series, really made the original Batman villains look silly in retrospect (except of course for the ones they brought back). Aside from Venom and Carnage, I've always found Spiderman villains way too cheesy.

bump. just saw it. theatre almost empty, just the way i like it.

i think they changed a lot of things, and maybe the purists didnt like it, but i thought it was great.

also, the glasses worn by SM/UB/DOCC were great. anyone now the makers/models? internets say Oliver Peoples larabee.

 Andrew Garfield is kind of cute, though.

Believe it or not guys, I have yet to see this one. My heart's just not into it and I can't seem to get myself excited to watch the film. Thinking I will just wait for the DVD at this point.
