Contrary to Jim Carrey’s recent “Kick-Ass 2” promotional protest, it seems as though the anti-violence actor may or may not be portraying one of Peter Parker’s most violent villains in the upcoming “Amazing Spider-Man” sequel. Originating on the message boards of Superhero Hype, a rumor has been running rampant all over the Internet that Carrey has a brief appearance in “Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
Now a fan picture has surfaced which proves that Jim Carrey was on the “Amazing Spider-Man 2″ set back in March. With the majority of the scenes filmed in March taking place at the Ravencroft Institute, fans have begun to speculate as to exactly which mental patient Carrey might be playing. You can check out our guesses after the jump!
Better known as the serial killer symbiote Carnage, Cletus Kasady is a homicidal maniac who once shared a jail cell with Eddie Brock (a.k.a. Venom) and bonded with a piece of his symbiote. As Carnage, Kasady is virtually unstoppable utilizing his symbiote powers to torture and kill innocent people on a grand scale. He’s also a former patient of the Ravencroft Institute.
A former Hollywood stuntman/special FX artist, Quentin Beck turns to a life of crime as a result of feeling under-appreciated by his peers. Using his expert knowledge of stage illusions, Beck dons a fishbowl helmet and calls himself Mysterio. He later joins a group of Spidey’s enemies, called the Sinister Six, which has actually been rumored to appear in the third “Amazing Spider-Man” film.
Former assistant to the director of Ravencroft Institute, Edward Whelan is a vagrant that was turned into a rat/human hybrid called Vermin by the nefarious Baron Zemo. It isn’t until his superior, Dr. Kafka, cures him of his ailments that Whelan stops giving into his Vermin instincts. The entirety of the Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane is actually funded by the government as a direct result of Dr. Kafka’s success with this patient.
J. Jonah Jameson
Peter Parker’s mustached manager at the Daily Bugle, J. Jonah Jameson was absent in the first “Amazing Spider-Man.” Although there have been some rumors that original actor J.K. Simmons could be appearing in the “Amazing” sequel as Jameson, it is also entirely possible that a new actor could chomp on the cigar. Jameson could also fit into the Ravencroft setting due to the fact that the head of security is his son.
John Jameson, Jr./Man-Wolf
The son of J. Jonah Jamespn and Ravencroft’s head of security, John Jameson actually dated Dr. Ashley Kafka for a brief while. When he’s not guarding mental asylums, he can be found in outer space acting on top secret government missions. One of these missions actually saw Jameson traveling to the moon to collect lunar rocks which would eventually cause him to turn into the wolf humanoid known as Man-Wolf. Is it just us or does a werewolf Jim Carrey sound like an AMAZING idea?
