More Villains Revealed in Amazing Spider-Man 2 Video Game Launch Trailer

Posted by Orion Petitclerc Saturday, April 26, 2014
Remember that villains trailer Beenox unleashed a while back for their Amazing Spider-Man 2 videogame based on characters and events from the upcoming films? The one that got me excited for Cletus Kasady's (a.k.a. Carnage, Venom's psychotic symbiotic spawn) debut in a film-verse Spider-Man video game? Well if Beenox didn't sell me with that trailer, it just did with the brand-new launch trailer exclusively revealed over at MTV.

Yep, that was Carnage in all of his bloody glory. 'Scuse me while I hyperventilate in a corner…

They say my jazz hands are a sight to DIE for!
I love the classic Carnage design that the art team chose to go with for the videogame; it's very Mark Baley-esque while incorporating the monstrous feet designs he gave the character later on in the Ultimate Spider-Man comic book series. Hopefully this design is a foreshadowing of things to come in the Venom spin-off film, in which the Amazing Spider-Man film producers have teased at Carnage's inclusion. Let's just hope that Venom's design from the Amazing Spider-Man 2 mobile game doesn't even make it to the concept board for his film.

Option B, please. I'd rather not have a Spider-Man 3 repeat design.
Also of note is Shocker's recent addition to the excitingly expansive villain roster for the game. Shocker and his alter ego, Herman Shultz, have been getting time in the spotlight over at the film's viral Tumblr site, The Daily Bugle, so perhaps the game too will confirm The Daily Bugle's faux news blogs as canonical to the film-verse.
