New AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Viral Marketing Reveals A Court Date Has Been Set For Dr. Connors’ Trial
The latest edition of The Daily Bugle has been released. The paper that is occasionally published on a Tumblr page to help promote the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2 has posted a new article talking about the first film’s villain, Dr. Curt Connors aka The Lizard. According to the story written by Ned Leeds (a very familiar name to classic Spidey readers), a trail date has been set for Dr. Connors charges on over twenty counts of trespassing, malicious destruction of property, theft of private property, aggravated assault, and using a weapon of mass destruction. I guess killing Captain Stacy wasn’t too big of a deal. You can read the full story below to see what hints, Easter Eggs, and clues you can get from the piece. We might just see Dr. Connors again when the long rumored Sinister Six assemble in one of the future films. He’d be a good recruit, wouldn’t he? What do you think about the latest story from The Bugle?

A trial date has been set in the New York Appellate Court for alleged bio-terrorist Dr. Curt Connors. The former Oscorp biogenetics scientist has been indicted on twenty city and state counts, including trespassing, malicious destruction of property, theft of private property, aggravated assault, and using a weapon of mass destruction. Connors has pleaded “not guilty” to all counts. It is expected his defense attorney, Anne Weying, will claim Connors was not responsible for the actions of his genetically transformed alter ego, the Lizard.
Connors claimed that pressure placed on him by his employer, Oscorp, led him to rush his bio-restorative formula and test it on himself. He further stipulated to the grand jury that his decision to use the untested compound was made in an effort to protect the company from experimenting on innocent civilians, as directed by his superiors. Connors’ immediate supervisor at Oscorp, Dr. Rajit Ratha, has been missing since the day before the Lizard’s attack.
Oscorp spokesman, Donald Menken, responded, “We can’t corroborate or deny Dr. Connor’s claims. Dr. Ratha’s abrupt departure from Oscorp has left us with far more questions than answers. Needless to say, Oscorp has always complied with the most stringent local, state and federal regulations for all of our research and development.”
