A new still has been released from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that may hint at the future of the franchise.

The picture shows B. J. Novak as Alistair Smythe talking to Jamie Foxx's Max Dillon (before he becomes Electro). Take a look at it here:

This might seem fairly innocuous at first, until you realize that Alistair Smythe works at Oscorp with Dillon - and that is may well be Smythe stealing Dillon's ideas that leads him to become unhinged in the first place.

It has even been speculated that after learning what he can from Dillon, Smythe goes on to create a whole range of super-armor, up to and including Doctor Octopus' arms, Vulture's wings and, of course, the Spider Slayers.

In this way, we may well see this movie lay the foundations for the creation of the Sinister Six - a movie which has been all but confirmed by Sony.

But what do you think? How many villains will we see introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man 2? And how instrumental will Alistair Smythe be in creating the Sinister Six?
