The Daily Bugle's latest story includes references to a number of Marvel villains, including The Big Man and his gang known as The Enforcers, Detective Stan Carter, who becomes Sin-Eater, and Alexsei Sytsevich, a.k.a. The Rhino (Paul Giamatti). Check out the full article from the Bugle's Frederick Foswell, which details a shootout between The Big Man's gang and Alexsei Sytsevich's crew.

Despite the fun, innocent acronym, DUMBO, Brooklyn was the scene of an old-fashioned gun battle today when factions of the Russian mob and The Big Man's gang escalated their ongoing war for control of the city's organized crime, culminating in a dramatic shootout along Jay Street that left three dead and the police scrambling for answers.
Despite the tragic outcome, police found a silver lining as security camera footage captured the first visual confirmation of the reputed Big Man leaving the scene with his crew (the Enforcers). Police spokesman, Major Crimes Unit Sergeant Stan Carter, said the image would not be revealed to the general public until the department's analysis of the footage was completed.
Sources indicate that the video footage confirmed the involvement of the Big Man's Enforcers, including Fancy Dan Brito, Jackson Montana Brice and Raymond "The Ox" Bloch, all of whom were out on bail from previous criminal charges. The police identified the victims as Anatoly Melikov, Gennady Panarin, and Evgeny Teryoshin, all reputed members of Alexsei Sytsevich's Brighton Breach crew.
The Big Man and his Enforcers were previously teased in a December story, while Stan Carter has been mentioned in another story from that month. What's interesting is that, in the comics, Bugle reporter Frederick Foswell himself was actually The Big Man, and his story claims there is visual evidence of The Big Man on the scene. Perhaps we'll be seeing another Daily Bugle story about Foswell being exposed as the villain.
Of course, it isn't clear whether or not The Big Man, his Enforcers, or Stan Carter will be featured in this sequel, but the fact that they mention these characters in the same story as Alexsei Sytsevich could hint at their involvement in either The Amazing Spider-Man 2 or the already-confirmed sequels The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released May 2nd, 2014 and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Felicity Jones, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb.
