First launched this past summer, The Amazing Spider-Man2‘s viral Tumblr feed has today been updated with the below article, “Oscorp Biz Holds Steady” written by Joy Mercado of the comic books. It mentions the actions of Dr. Curt Connors from the first film, and a flight harness (Vulture? Goblin?) But the most interesting part is the head of the engineering division, Spencer Smythe.
In the comics, he invents the deadly Spider-Slayer robots that he uses to torment Spider-Man.

Despite the assault on Oscorp Tower two weeks ago and the revelation that disgruntled Oscorp employee, Dr. Curt Connors, was responsible for the attack, Oscorp’s stock has climbed four points.
Oscorp spokesman Douglas Menken provided some details from the meeting, including that the construction on the prototype alternative energy power plant, complete with hydroelectric tower, is on schedule for completion within the next year.
Other highlights included a preview of a flight harness for the military and significant advancements in robotics by the head of the engineering division, Spencer Smythe.
Oscorp personnel dismissed questions regarding Norman Osborn’s health and whether the company’s estranged heir apparent, Harry Osborn, is up to the task of running his father’s conglomerate.
Menken stated, “Between the disappearance of Dr. Rajit Ratha, the rogue actions of a very unstable former employee and Norman Osborn’s health concerns, everyone in the media will cry the sky is falling, but just the opposite is true. While everyone else ducks for cover, Oscorp is always reaching for the stars.”
Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Chris Cooper, Felicity Jones and Sally Field.
The film is set to swing into theaters May 2nd, 2014. While the third film is currently set for release on June 10, 2016 and a fourth film in the franchise to follow on May 4, 2018.
