I think we can guess one of the movie's villains.

Cool! The guy with the crazy claws! I always thought he was a good villain. I don't think Spiderman is going to fare quite as well as he did against the Green Goblin... it could be curtains for the webslinger this time.

This guy is called Doctor Octopus and the claws are in fact metal tentacles.

Doctor Octopus :D

I think they should get multiple villians this time - maybe someone like Dr Doom as well :D.

The Dr. Octopus guy is probably The Green Goblin's son, huh??

Is that his name, the green goblin?? I'm not a big fan of Spiderman. :o

Does anyone know if this Octopus guy is a proper medical doctor or just a PhD?

controlfreak, I think you mean this: Is Doc Ock a proper doctor with an actual doctorate, such as a Ph.D, or is he a medico with bachelors degrees in medicine and surgery?

Anyway, the first Spider-Man movie sucked. Let's hope for something better this time. Dr. Octopus is a pretty weak villain, as are most of those classic Spider-Man villains. The only truly powerful one was the Sandman.

Maybe they'll beef Doc Ock up a bit compared to the comic-book version, like they did with Toad and Mystique in X-Men.

Dr. Doom is a much better villain, but surely there'll be a Fantastic Four movie one day, and that's where he should make his big-screen debut.

Dr Octupus isn't Green Goblin's son....at least in the comics
I can't wait to see it, but I agree Venon is the worst one....he can slap Spiderman so easily......
BTW I like the Green Goblin and I was so disappointed when I saw the costume....I was expecting something as the comics or the cartoons :(

Who really is Dr. Octopus :

"Otto Octavius was a brilliant atomic researcher who designed and constructed a chest harness to which four artificial tentacle-like arms were attached to enable him to manipulate radioactive substances from a safe distance. Because of his invention, Octavius was nicknamed "Doctor Octopus." In a freak laboratory accident, volatile radioactive organic liquids exploded, bombarding the scientist with radiation. The accident bonded his harness to his skin and nervous system. Octavius received brain damage in the accident, causing him to become criminally insane. Octavius also found that he could now control his artificial arms psionically, rather than by the manual chest-plate controls. Over the years, Octavius gained an even greater command over his extra arms, enabling him to direct their actions even when they became separated from his chest harness. Surgery was used by the legal authorities to separate Octavius from the harness. The harness was again fused to his body by radiation at one point, but at present the harness is not fused to his body.

Doctor Octopus has sought to amass wealth and power through various criminal activities, and has formed gangs with which he has attempted to dominate crime in New York City. He has battled Daredevil and Mister Fantastic, but he is obsessed with destroying his most frequent nemesis, Spider-Man. Although Octavius's original timid, benevolent personality returns from time to time, his sinister Doctor Octopus personality inevitably re-emerges and becomes dominant again."

"Doctor Octopus is the world's leading authority on nuclear radiation and its effects on human physiology; he is also a brilliant engineer and inventor."

No, I know that.

What I meant was, at the end of the first movie, the Green Goblin's son said he would get revenge in Spiderman. So, I bet the son is really Dr. Octopus.

Hum... I don't think they will do that. It will be too far from the original story behind Spider-Man. Besides, the son could come for revenge in another movie too. If I am right, in the original comic, the son takes over is father and becomes the Green Goblin too. I think this is what will happen in the movie...
