Amazing Spider-Man 2 will have 5,000 villains

The Amazing Spider-Man sequel is apparently going to have more villains than extras. There's Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giamatti as the Rhino — but that's not all.

Spoilers ahead...

Dane De Haan (Chronicle) is playing Harry Osborn in the film, and he's been rumored for a while to become the Green Goblin towards the end of the movie. And now, actor Felicity Jones — who everybody thought was playing the Black Cat — has revealed whom she's actually playing in the film. And it's... another villain. She says:

It’s all quite shrouded in secrecy, but I’m the Goblin’s girlfriend - I’m in a relationship with him, and his accomplice. I’m on the dark side.

The Playlist speculates that she's playing Lily Holister, the girlfriend of Harry Osborn who winds up becoming the supervillain Menace. (In the comics, Menace, too, winds up getting the Goblin serum and gets superpowers, terrorizing the city in her own right. But it seems quite likely this won't happen in the film.) So now you have three major villains, plus a fairly major villain accomplice. How many more baddies can they fit in one sequel?
