The Amazing Spider-Man‘s Rhys Ifans was recently interviewed by Ain’t It Cool News about the mid-credits bonus scene in which a mysterious figure appears before Dr. Connors. In the interview, Ifans states that despite popular internet opinion, the mysterious man is NOT Norman Osborn.
Here’s a portion of that interview:
AICN: Okay, what do you think about that ending?
RI: Well, Connors is basically locked up in a very high-security mental institution.
AICN: We were debating whether it was a prison or a mental institute.
RI: It’s not a zoo. [laughs] I kept seeing it as maybe a mixture of both. Then a representative from OsCorp appears miraculously in the room. How he gets in there and how he leaves, we don’t know. Maybe we will find out. But it’s not Norman Osborn.
AICN: It’s not? You can say that?
RI: Yeah. But it is someone who is in the employ of Norman Osborn without question.
AICN: Someone we’re familiar with, who we don’t know is employed by Osborn?
AICN: Okay, interesting.
RI: Who knows? Maybe he will be the next bad guy; we’ll see.
So if it’s not Norman Osborn, who is it?? Tell us your thoughts internet.
