As they've been doing for some time, the latest entry for The Amazing Spider-Man 2's viral Daily Bugle site has debuted a new entry (via Yahoo!) that teases Spidey villains Venom and Carnage, one of whom will be getting his own spin-off film in the near future. Their latest piece reads as follows:
KILLER KASADY CAUGHT
The greater New York tri-state area got a whole lot safer yesterday. Captured late last night, Cletus Kasady, escaped serial killer and notorious redhead, was eerily calm and subdued when he eagerly surrendered to the FBI. The manhunt for the FBI’s Most Wanted felon ended innocuously in a small strip mall outside of New Rochelle, New York.
A barista at a local coffee shop recognized Kasady and eventually called the police. The barista apologized to reporters later admitting she didn’t immediately alert authorities hoping Spider-Man would beat them to the scene. “What can I say? I am a HUGE fan.”
Kasady had been sentenced to twelve life sentences for the twelve murders he committed — but escaped while being transported between federal prisons. Sources say Kasady has been remanded to Ravencroft Institute for further interrogation until he is relocated to a maximum security federal prison. While the barista didn’t get her wish, we know Spider-Man thanks her… as we all do. For now it appears that Kasady won’t be causing any more carnage.
It's unknown if all of the events teased in these viral updates will eventually come to pass in the canon of "The Amazing Spider-Man" film series, but for the time being it's a fun wink to the fans.
