The Daily Bugle, the viral site for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, has a new post up that teases BJ Novak's character Alistair Smythe.
The post reads: "Within a week of the announcement that the NYPD and the District Attorney's Office had opened an investigation into illegal activities and questionable medical practices at Manhattan's Oscorp Industries, sources indicate several of their top scientists have been asked to leave. Reports cite the recent forced resignation of Dr. Spencer Smythe, the Director of Robotics, amongst others. He was seen leaving Oscorp Tower yesterday with a box of his personal belongings.
When asked to comment on the current employment situation of Dr. Smythe, Oscorp spokesman Donald Menken had no comment. Later in the day, Oscorp sent out a press release congratulating Alistair Smythe on his promotion to the Director of Robotics formerly held by his father. How Mrs. Smythe expects this will impact holiday dinners remains unknown."
The film will be released on May 2. It was directed by Marc Webb and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, B.J. Novak and Sarah Gadon.
