Movie-goers who didn’t wait around past the credits of The Amazing Spider-Man may have missed a clue about the film’s sequel.

At the end of the flick — which stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone — a scene shows the captured Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) alone in a prison cell.

But he soon gets a visitor.

A man covered in shadows suddenly appears and asks, “Did you tell the boy? Did you tell the boy the truth about his father?”

When Dr. Connors replies no, the man replies, “Well, that’s very good. So we’ll let him be for now.”

Dr. Connors shouts, “You should leave him alone!” but it’s too late — the mystery man is already gone.

Bloggers are already speculating about the man’s identity, with some suggesting that he could be villainous Mysterio or The Chameleon.

One thing seems certain: he was referring to Peter Parker’s dad.  In The Amazing Spider-Man, much is focused on the deceased Richard Parker, played by Campbell Scott. The film — which hauled in an impressive $35 million on its opening day — shows the superhero’s father’s office destroyed, as he flees with Peter’s mother and is killed in a plane crash with his wife.

So what’s the truth about Spidey’s dad?  The film’s director, Marc Webb, isn’t telling.

“We wanted to convey that there were more forces at work than you may have initially thought,” he told MTV News. “That’s all I can say about that. But I invite speculation. I think it’s very fun and interesting to listen to.”

Webb also downplayed chatter that the mystery man will play a vital villain role in the sequel.

“I am not going to go that far,” he said, “but certainly [he] will play a role in the future, in some fashion or another.”

Fans will get the answer — and much more  — when the sequel swings into theaters on May 2, 2014.
