The viral “Daily Bugle” site for Sony’s upcoming sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been posting quite a few stories lately and their most recent one might have something to do with the film’s villain, Electro. Here’s the article, which references a “Hydroelectric power plant”:
Despite the outraged cries of protesters that have dogged the project since its inception, Oscorp Industries is set to flip the switch on the construction of an experimental hydroelectric power plant that could reshape New York’s power landscape.
“What do you want me to say? That this is a bad idea? Oh, you do? Fine. This is a bad idea,” said average New York taxi driver, Mike Lortz when asked his thoughts about the power plant.
A wave of the Mayor’s pen on Resolution 2013.2.C4A was enough to signify the end of months of legal maneuvering, bureaucratic red tape, and political wrangling.
Norman Osborn was unavailable for comment, leaving company spokesman Donald Menken to succinctly sum up the announcement, “Oscorp’s patented ‘free-flow’ power grid design will power the entire city for the next 20 years.”
Though fears of an impending city-destroying catastrophe are running high, Oscorp’s stock still managed to climb after a week of tumultuous trading.
Could this Oscorp experiment be how Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx) gets his powers and becomes Electro in the film? It certainly looks that way. How do you think Electro will get his powers in the film? Sound off below!
