The viral Daily Bugle website for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has released another faux article and, once again, it mentions a number of characters from Spidey's rogues gallery.

In addition to a Ned Leeds byline and quotes from Flash Thompson, the new story, "Casino Bucks Fund Lizard School Repairs," names Thomas Fireheart, the alternate identity of the comic book character Puma. The article, posted below, also positions Fireheart as the owner of a casino in a nod to the character's Native American heritage. What's more, it seemingly sets the stage for the sequel to pick up three months after the events of the 2012 reboot.

Smash the tail of a lizard, it grows back new. Smash a school with the tail of a lizard, it stays smashed. Until now, that is.

An endowment to the New York City public schools system from Fireheart Industires will help pay for the repairs to the damage suffered by Midtown Science High as a result of Dr. Curt Connors’ rampage three months ago.

Casino owner and businessman, Thomas Fireheart, presented the donation to the city school’s chancellor in an afternoon ceremony at the school. The gift of two million dollars will cover the entire estimated cost for repairs.

Attending the event, senior student and co-captain of the school’s football and basketball varsity teams, Eugene “Flash” Thompson said, “This place was a freaking mess after the Lizard smashed it up. But it would’ve been a lot worse if it wasn’t for Spider-Man.”


Opening in theaters on May 2, 2014, the Marc Webb-directed sequel stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, B.J. Novak and Sarah Gadon.
