A new nemesis for Spidey has been announced but the not say what villian he will play. Thomas Haden Church has been cast

Villain announced for 'Spider-Man 3' (http://edition.cnn.com/2005/SHOWBIZ/Movies/03/22/film.church.reut/index.html)

Church is the Spider-Man 3 Nemesis! (http://superherohype.com/news/spider-mannews.php?id=2758)

I'll have to think who he will play. Anyone with thoughts on his character?

Thanks for posting that Dale...surprising announcement this early in the game, even if they didn't reveal the character he's playing yet.  From what I've been reading around the net this morning, it seems like most people are feeling he'll be playing either Venom or Sandman.  It would be interesting to see Sandman introduced into the movie world, although whether or not he's a "big enough" baddie to carry a movie would yet to be seen.  With the ending of Spidey 2, I was almost certain we'd be seeing some form of the Goblin in the next movie (with Harry), but perhaps they'll draw that out a little more, or it will be a dual villain type of thing.  Of course, Dr. Conners was introduced as well, so there is always the possibility of Lizard as well.  Of course, then that's 3 villains, and I don't really see that happening.  Anyways, its always nice to get a little bit of news during this longer lull between movies, can't wait to see my favorite superhero hit the big screen again.  Lots of rumors swirling around on this movie early on...ranging from GG2, Hobgoblin, Venom, Black Cat, Lizard, Sandman, and even Man Wolf!  Speculation is running wild it seems :).

I think there will be at least 2 villains in the next one.  It sounded like on the DVD extras they wanted to do 2 villains for the last one but opted for one instead.

The dumb guy from "Wings" and "Sideways"?   ::)

I hate that guy...  >:(


I'll guess he's going to be some villian who will make me hate this movie, just like Tommy Lee Jones ruined the Bat-Franchise for me... well, actually a LOT of things in that 3rd Batman movie ruined it for me (and everyone else).  :P

I've heard that the Black Cat is supposed to be in 3 as well.  They had a bit on AICN (I think) from an actress who said she hopes to play a "blonde, buxom villain" in Spidey 3.

I sure hope they don't do Venom.  How will the story make any sense w/o sending Spidey into space to meet the symbiote?

Easy.  Show a flashback with JJ Jameson's astronaut son and have the symbiote stow away aboard his shuttle.  Not comic book accurate, but it works.

Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: Dimetrodon on May 26, 2005, 01:05 PM


Eric Foreman?

Thats what I thought when I was told about this.

I can't imagine who he would be though..

As far as any rumors that i've heard about we know we're getting some sort of harry goblin.. i'm not sure if he'll be a green or hob.. who knows how they will reinterpret things..

But there are major rumors and statments about the Sandman. Mostly of a lot of concept art for him and such. Sandman isn't my favorite, but is still cool. Although he probably won't look too real. but who knows with the advancements in effects..

Aside from the goblin.. I'd almost expect the Lizard to be in it. Doc Connors was mentioned in the first movie, and even had a bit role in the second film, so I see it as very likely.

I'd like to see the Vulture, but considering the baddies we already saw spiderman go up against, i think he isn't tough enough.
Electro and Mysterio would be pretty cool.
Scorpion might be cool too, but he's basically a lesser doc ock..to me anyway..
Kraven.. i dunno..

It would be cool if they did a Sinister Six thing.. but that'd have to be it's own movie.

I don't know why everyone wants Venom and Carnage to team up on spidey.. as I recall it they are enemies.. and Venom has helped spidey to defeat Carnage before..
Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: Famine on May 26, 2005, 01:47 PM
Venom and Carnage kinda tag teamed on webhead, but eventually they got at each others throats, and they are enemies. Carnage has a brain fettish...want's to eat Venom and Spidey's brains and hearts. :'(

Unless I missed some issues, I believe Venom and Carnage hated each other from the start.  I do recall Venom and Spidey teaming to take down Carnage, though.

As for Eric Forman - easy, Mysterio.  Perfect fit IMO.

Post by: Famine on May 26, 2005, 03:28 PM
Upon Carnage's initial birth, he wasn't HATED by Venom was he? It wasn't till Carnage started being a smartass and all that that he went all...piss and moan and hated Carnage...?

My theory on how Venom gets the symobite(sp) suit thing is this: MJ's ex-astro boyfriend finds the suit floating in space and brings it back to earth for no reason whatsoever.  :P Lame theory, I know, but thats what I predict those hollywood bigwigs will think of.

I agree, but I forsee Peter having the suit beforehand. Then Brock will get it...If you read the comics I can go deeper into detail...don't know how spoiler ridden you want to get.

I'd guess they'll mess with the Brock character and the origin of the symbiote as well.  I can see it coming from space, but the Brock character as played by Topher Grace being true to the comic origin?  Can't see it happening.

Simple PLEASE NOT THIS IS MY TAKE:

Brock is already established as existing doing work for the Bugle in Spider-Man 1. Now we get a face to the name, after Spider-Man is out in a new black suit, and he's not sure how he gets it. Doc Connors explains it's a symbiote, rah rah rah, Peter got it after coming into contact on a field trip or working with J.J.'s son or somthing. Peter also inadvertantly costs Brock his job by getting better shots of Spidey. Peter gets taken over slowly by the symbiote, goes to kill Sandman, bells ring at the church, suit falls off, Brock who was inside ready to kill himself because parker/spidey cost him his job gets it, and then hell breaks loose. Then with the added threat of The Hobgoblin, it gets so much better.

Kevin
Title: Re: Super Hero/Comic Book Movies
Post by: Morgbug on September 27, 2005, 12:12 AM
Well, the suicide twist is interesting.  My difficulty with Grace as Brock is the size difference.  In both the more recent TV cartoon (Now on video!) and in the original books, Brock was sizable, something Grace clearly is not.  So a twist is somehow necessary.  Not sure if I'm looking forward to the presumed abundant CGI necessary to pull off Venom as such.
Title: Re: Super Hero/Comic Book Movies
Post by: Famine on September 27, 2005, 01:13 AM
Grace has been working like mad to bulk up for the role of Eddie. Hoepfully they'll give him some lifts and so forth, and the symbiote will really bulk him up.

Think of all the Venom toys to clog the pegs at Wal*Mart! :-* :o :D ;D

Just read the new Spidey Villain News (http://www.superherohype.com/news/spider-mannews.php?id=3510) this morning, and its nice to get some sort of confirmation on this.  I'm guessing Dunst wasn't supposed to let that slip, as I had read they were planning some sort of big "reveal" later this year/early next for the villains.  These were both rumored for awhile.  I'm guessing, no matter how much they can bulk Topher up, they must be going with a more "Ultimate Spidey"-ish type of Venom in this story, where he wasn't the huge, hulking Eddie Brock.  Venom's origin seems like it could take a whole movie in itself to set up, so I'm wondering if Brock won't actually get "the costume" until towards the end of 3, setting up movie 4...maybe the "cliffhanger" for this one.  Who knows though.  I'm kind of jazzed that Sandman will likely be a villain as well.  Sometimes he's a little lesser known, but he was one of my favorites as a kid.  2007 is a ways off yet, but I'm already looking forward to another Spidey film.
Title: Re: Super Hero/Comic Book Movies
Post by: Jim on September 27, 2005, 11:31 AM
Well looks like my guess a while back about Sandman worked out.  Always one of my favorite (and more memorable) Spidey villains.  I think Haden will make a good match even though I am not a huge fan of his.  As for Venom, mehh. No sure how they are going to pull off unless like said, some type of twist is involved.   Im just more loyal to the older villains.  Hobgoblin is really my only new favorite villain of last 20 years.  Hopefully we get the Lizard in the next one. 
Title: Re: Super Hero/Comic Book Movies
Post by: BillCable on September 27, 2005, 06:28 PM
John Myers is not returning in Hellboy 2.

Probably not a bad thing.  He was kinda thrown in anyway.

Hulk 2... I wish it would happen and I wish Ang Lee would direct again. The first one is the best Marvel film to date. Much better than the crappy, overrated Spider-Man movies.

Agreed.  I, for one, loved The Hulk.  And though the Spidey movies were good eye candy, their stories were very weak.  I can barely tolerate Spidey 1, and 2 is just marginally better.  Too many unnecessary and idiotic departures from the comic on which they were based.

PS:  Venom blows chunks.  And they'll need to decimate yet another origin story to force him down our throats.   :P

Are you kidding? Topher Grace has the natural born ability to coat himself in a black symbiotic alien costume with sheer will.

That is why they cast him in the role.

It sounds like Bryce Dallas Howard (daughter of Ron Howard) has officially been cast in Spider-Man 3 (http://www.superherohype.com/news/spider-mannews.php?id=3784) as Gwen Stacy.  Rumors are she will be part of a love triangle, and will be surviving the movie...just rumors at this point though, although the casting sounds confirmed (via Avi Arad).

otherwise, I am very optimistic on this movie.

You're onto something.

Hydroman was indeed on the show. as well as the Fantastic Four cartoon for an episode or 2.
they used him to replace sandman in a villain group for FF.

yeah, maybe sandman was never ont he cartoon. odd indeed as he was a major villain back int he day along the lines of electro, doc ock, vulture and such...

Sandman is cool though, maybe we'll get all 3 villians? What a blockbuster THAT would be-though I would think you would need another costarring hero for spidey if that happened. ::)

I saw this posted last night, and it was definitely a nice surprise.  Looks like its basically the old costume colored black, but I think it looks pretty cool that way.  I can't wait for this movie, over a year to go yet though.  I'm curious what the origin will be for the black suit as well.

Post by: IndianaVader on February 24, 2006, 02:07 PM
I don't like that it has the web and stuff.  It should be more sleek, like Venom.  Personally, I don't think that suit is actually black.  I think it's just an allusion to Venom making an appearance.

If it's supposed to be the symbiote outfit from Secret Wars, then they are taking the easy way out.  It should look like this:

I'm dissapointed that Mysterio isn't in the movie he was definately my FAV. Saw him in many episodes in the old cartoon series.....love when he knocks around spidey in the bar fight!

Sandman is cool though, maybe we'll get all 3 villians? What a blockbuster THAT would be-though I would think you would need another costarring hero for spidey if that happened. ::)

Mysterio is awesome. I would love it if it played out that Bruce Campbell turned out
to be Mysterio  8)

Well, the black costume looks drastically different.  They basically turned the red and blue suit black and silver and left the webbing on it.  Sandman did look impressive.  But the new Goblin wasn't very easy to see.  I'll have to slo-mo through those shots.

I dunno, it looks pretty intense. If the 3rd one doesn't have an R-rating, then I think the later ones will. Usually in a long series of movies, the later movies in the series end up with a 'worse' rating (take the prequels for example, or even Harry Potter)

That's a fake made up of pictures consisting of the new Mary Jane Watson poster, and some fan manipulations.

From what's been shown (the trailer from the con leaked onto Hype; white eyes, tounge hanging out, large bottom jaw, sharp teeth), and how it's been described, that's not Venom at all.

Just a fan manip. It's circulating the fan manip threads over there and in some blogs.

Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: name on November 10, 2006, 08:37 AM
That was excellent stuff.  Am still interested to see how they explain the arrival of the symbiote and how it picks peter. 

Disappointed to see that the Hobgoblins suit looks an awful lot like that horrible concept drawing.  With the relative realism that they've used so far in designing characters, I certainly didn't expect the pumpkin head and flaming cape, but I don't like this very much at all....that the forearm blades are just too batman.  Sandman, on the other hand, is about as perfect a character design as could be hoped for.

Above everything else, what I love about the Spidey movies is the webswinging.   This is one thing in the comics that I always just had to completely suspend disbelief on - it never actually made sense how it would be possible if I thought too much about it.  The way Rami translates it on screen though is incredible, and completely believable.  I could watch the webswinging all day long.
Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: Brian on November 10, 2006, 09:42 AM
I thought the trailer was great as well, but I always get excited for the new Spidey movies.  I really like the classic look they went with on Sandman, and the effects look pretty good to me so far.  Its pretty cool seeing Spidey in the black suit too, even if it isn't exactly as it is in the comics - I can see why they did it the way that they did.  I really can't wait for this movie next May, it looks like another great one from what we've seen so far.
Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: Mikey D on November 10, 2006, 10:15 AM
Looks most excellent.  Can't wait.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't see a shot of Venom.  I'm thinking more and more that's he's only going to be in the movie towards the end, setting up the inevitable sequel (because let's face it, this movie is going to make a ******* ton of money).

Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: Matt on November 10, 2006, 10:25 AM
(Consider as you read the following that I am a movie fan and not a comic book fan.)

Color me unimpressed.  I loved Spidey 2, but the more I know of the new one, the less enthused I am about it.  My main concern is that, well, it's just too much.  Too many enemies.  Too many love interests.  Just too much stuff going on, in general, like what happened with the Schumacher Bat-films.  It's like everybody knows that this is the last Spidey flick (at least with Tobey), and they're just cramming as much stuff into it as possible.

Was also disappointed to hear about the Sandman/Uncle Ben connection.  I don't know how that's supposed to work, exactly, but convoluted stuff like that is one of my main hang-ups with comics.  And I've never much cared for the symbiote suit/Venom stuff, either--(and I realize this will sound incredibly silly, so feel free to pick me apart over this) it is just way too comic book-y for my tastes.  One of the reasons I loved Spidey 2 so much is Doc Ock--it just felt "real" to me, like that could really happen to somebody, and I don't get that feeling from Sandman or Venom.

I hope I'm wrong, and I'm sure that the action sequences will be amazing (as usual), but I'm just looking less- and less-forward to this.

Yeah, that is my one worry about the film too.  It's annoying that Hollywood thinks they have to keep outdoing themselves with each new film.  It's like they have a comic-book movie hand-book that says - "Well, #1 had one villain, and #2 had 2 bad guys, so let's put 3-4 villains in #3!"   ::)
Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: ruiner on November 10, 2006, 11:31 AM
I'll give you that (Matt and Jeff).  My other concern is the 'story' with Peter finding his "true" self. 

Again, like Spidey 2, Pete has to deal with other issues that affect his 'performance' as a superhero.  In the sequel, it was about his personal life interfering, now it's the temptation of more power.

The trailer makes the film feel like Spidey 2 - anyone else get that feeling?

Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: Matt_Fury on November 10, 2006, 01:13 PM
I too have the same fears about there being too much in this film.  I'm also curious to see how they tie Sandman in with Uncle Ben's death...that seemed pretty straight forward to me in the first movie.

I do think that Venom will only be introduced at the end and Spider-Man won't even know about him, sort of like how Harry found all the goblin stuff at the end of Spider-Man 2.

I also think we'll see Tobey play Peter/Spider-Man in Spider-Man 4.
Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: ruiner on November 10, 2006, 01:43 PM
Is there confirmation of a fourth?

One would think that Tobey doesn't want to be typecast as Spider-Man...
Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: Morgbug on November 10, 2006, 02:00 PM
I can't be bothered by too much going on in the spiderman movies, at least from the other issues standpoint.  I'm not keen on the multiple villain aspect (though maybe they're building towards a Sinister Six theme for S6 :-*) myself either.  I think though that like Mikey's observation I didn't notice Venom really in there, other than Topher as Brock taking a picture, so yeah, probably he'll be a focal point for S4.  I'm ok with the hobgoblin concept though not liking the approach - it should be a batwinged flying device, not a freaking snowboard.  There's always been a lot of overlap between DC/Marvel so that there are elements (gauntlet blades) that are similar to another comic book movie doesn't bother me. 

I think they did a stellar job with Sandman in terms of the effects.  What I have a HUGE problem with is the notion that he is tied somehow to Uncle Ben.  I guess I missed it in all those years reading comics but I don't recall that link at all.  Yes, liberties will be taken with characters, but this is just too much of a stretch for me to approve of it.  I fully expect I'll really, really enjoy this movie but that's going to be a nitpick of mine for years to come. I'll grant them the opportunity to explain it (or hey, I'll just be embarassed here if someone can tell me it was in the comics all along) but suffice to say I'm going in with a chip on my shoulder about that one >:(
Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: ruiner on November 10, 2006, 03:51 PM
I'll be the second to admit not reading / knowing about a connection between the Sandman and Uncle Ben's death.

It always been clear to me that it was a nameless robber - the one that got away....

Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: Mikey D on November 10, 2006, 04:05 PM
There has been no connection between Uncle Ben and Sandman whatsoever in the comics. 

Why does there have to be a connection?  Why can't Spidey just go after Sandman for robbing a bank, killing a cat, jaywalking or some other crime?  Sandman's a bad guy, Spidey stops bad guys.  Simple.  Making Sandman having something to do with Ben's death is just something that doesn't need to be done.  Contrary to popular belief, most people actually have some brains and can comprehend the whole "with great power comes great responsibility".  There doesn't need to be any extra motivation for Spidey to stop Sandman.
Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: Brian on November 10, 2006, 04:15 PM
Yeah, I don't remember any connection between Sandman and Uncle Ben either.  There seems to be a number of theories going around regarding this "connection", and I'm hoping its not as close as it looks right now in the trailer.  Some are saying he might have been the "boss" to the thug that actually shot Ben, some are saying its all a "dream" of Peter's - influenced by the symbiote, and some are saying its just and outright lie to mislead Pete/Spidey.  Who knows, I guess we'll see in May, but I'm kind of hoping there isn't a real, direct connection between Sandman and Uncle Ben's death.  It won't ruin the movie/franchise for me or anything, but I kind of hope it isn't too definite a connection.
Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: name on November 10, 2006, 05:04 PM
I'm thinking outright lie to manipulate peter into a battle with sandman.  Think of it from a writer's perspective:

Spidey is trying to destroy Sandman because of misplaced blame for Uncle Ben's death while Harry Osborn is trying to destroy Spidey because of misplaced blame for his father's death.

It's beautiful.
Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: Matt_Fury on November 10, 2006, 06:29 PM
There's never been any connection in the comics between Sandman and Uncle Ben's death.  It has always been the robber that Spider-Man let get away that killed hi.  It was that realization that has haunted Spider-Man since the original comic!

I just do not think that sort of thing is necessary, but I'll wait and see before I judge them on it.  They have a good track record so far.  I think a better plot point would be that Spider-Man (driven by the alien symbiote) would go too far in almost kill Sandman instead of just subduing him....it would be more in synch with the character from the comics.

But, like I said, I'll reserve judgement until I see where they're going with it.  Too tough to determine the story from a teaser.

I've read the past few posts, and I just wanted to toss in this nugget:

Raimi has said quite a few times, Harry isn't Green Goblin 2, or Hobgoblin.

I myself was pleased with the trailer to an extent. It seems like there will be a ton going on in this movie, building to a huge battle royal, with Spider-Mans villains, and his inner self. I'm quite pleased that Raimi isn't pimping out this movie as VENOM, as big a Venom fan as I am.

Stick around for the end...the very end ...after the movie logo.  Something a lot of you have been waiting to see.

And tell me if I'm wrong, but is that Felicia Hardy at the 2:31 mark??

Felicia Hardy?  Gwen Stacy?  I'd say the hair is the former, but can't be sure as the woman appears twice for only a split second.  If it is Hardy I'm sticking with my building towards the Sinister Six theory.  Venom's neat looking but clearly going to be all cgi which is no surprise, but we'll see how that look holds up.

Shots I grabbed from the trailer, it's Gwen.

Ah...well I guess I missed the memo somewhere that Gwen was going to be in this one.

I'm more than a little bummed about that...they told the Gwen Stacy story already in Spidey 1, just with MJ, and they did it beautifully.  If we really needed a love triangle for Pete in this film, Felicia should have been the shoe in.  Especially with these themes of Pete exploring his darker side...Perfect opportunity for him to run around with the Black Cat.

Bummer.

Geez, I was just guessing at Gwen :o  Cool.

BTW, I think whoever suggested that the Sandman/Ben link is just to set Spidey up might be right.  The dialogue in that trailer is noncommittal from Sandman so I think he just doesn't get a chance to say no.  I hope. 

Oh.  Any thoughts as to whether Harry (not the Hobgoblin) kills Gwen instead of his dad?

Sideshow has now posted the pages for preorders for the upcoming RAH Spidey 3 toys.  It offers a few pictures of their Venom figures (http://www.sideshowtoy.com/cgi-bin/category.cgi?item=4327), which might give a good idea what he will look like in the movie - if this figure is accurate at all.  Pics at the linky.  They also have orders up for regular (http://www.sideshowtoy.com/cgi-bin/category.cgi?item=4328) and the black costume Spidey (http://www.sideshowtoy.com/cgi-bin/category.cgi?item=4329).

What's up with how loose spidey's costume fits in those pics?  I thought it looked really cool...nice detail on the Venom fig, since that would be the symbiote over Brock's street clothes, but since when is spidey's costume so roomy?

Also, can somebody explain the multiple poses?  Do you order the pose you like, or do these come with interchangeable legs?

People with MAC's seem able to see the colors despite the efforts to hide them on the boards, so always make sure to add the huge gaps for spoilers and all the warnings and whatnot.  trying to hide it with colored text isn't a safe gamble by far though, so everyone should try to take all the precautions they can, especially as things come closer and more gets out about this (or any movie for that matter).

This didn't really thrill me except maybe the final 10 seconds with Venom shooting up through the floor.  The fight scene versus Harry was a pretty huge snoozefest for me, it's just too similar to the Goblin and Doc Ock fight scenes in 1 and 2.  It's just been done to death already, and not all that well to boot.  Meh, I've seen worse.

I liked the first movie. The second one could have been better, but I never really cared for the Doc Octo. character. The third one looks like it could be good, but there are too many "major" villians for one movie. Between Sandman,Venom and the New Green Goblin that many villians would lend to another movie, but I thought this was the last.

I'm not too keen on the new Green Goblin outfit.  In the comic, I think his kid take aver afrer the original died, but the outfit was the same.  And the Hobgoblin outfit was stolen, and that guy was possessed by the outfit.  I'm off to work, someone else want to do the foot work and verify this for me please? 
Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: name on April 16, 2007, 11:23 AM
This is what I remember from my Spidey reading in the 80's.


Harry Osborn did briefly go insane and pick up where father Norman left off with the original suit and equipment.

Roderick Kingsley became the original Hobgoblin after somehow coming across the Osborn equipment and formulas. (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/d/d7/Hobgoblinx.jpg/225px-Hobgoblinx.jpg)

Somewhere along the line, Ned Leeds came across Kingsley, and was brainwashed into becoming a Hobgoblin stand-in.

Leeds was murdered in Berlin during a hit ordered by Jason Macendale, AKA the Jack-o-Lantern.

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/aa/Jackolantern002.jpg/225px-Jackolantern002.jpg) 

Macendale then took over the Hobgoblin identity, and in a deal gone bad with a demon king during the inferno demon invasion, he became the Demogoblin.

Well, I did think the first one was alright, until the part where the trolley thing is falling, and he holds it up.  Then I just thought it seemed to get too unrealistic.  Up to that part, I was liking it.  But that killed it for me.

Then the second one, just looked too much like the first one.  And I can't stand this guy -

(http://ifmagazine.com/graphics/features_movie/spiderman2jamesfranco.jpg)

When I look at him, I dunno.  He's just annoying as hell to me for whatever reason, I have no idea why.  And seeing this pic, just makes me sick.

(http://ekle.us/media/Spiderman3/NewGoblin.png)

I think the design for the "New Goblin" is just pitiful.  Really lame.

Really though, it seems like there's too many villians in this too like tonphanan pointed out... really the only one I think is that cool is Sandman. 

Keep in mind that I never was into superheros or the Marvel comics as a kid.   ;)

So the part about the guy being bit by a super spider and then getting powers was realistic???

I've never understood that argument, how ppl dont like a comic book movie because a certain part was unrealistic, its a comic book movie ppl , its all make believe.

Post by: CHEWIE on April 17, 2007, 05:23 PM
Oh I know none of it was realistic and you have a great point... but the incredible strength sometimes to me gets out of hand.

Like with Superman Returns, I didn't like how he lifted the krypto-rock that was about the size of the moon and threw it into space.  If he can do that... then really there's NOTHING that should ever even be a hint of a challenge to him.

Out of all the superhero movies, my favorite is easily the original Batman.

You also need to take into account that the spider for its size is extremely strong, and I mean really really strong.  And spider silk is very very strong aswell, that if it was as thick as a power cord it would be like stronger than steel cables. Sooo...

When you stick it to a human scale..... WOW. So if spider man was real, and if those powers were real, he could stop the speeding trolly.

Note - I'm not ripping on Spidey at all folks.  I always thought he was a great design and very cool.  I am just more of a casual fan, I never owned any Spiderman toys growing up.  It wasn't really on my radar too much... heck, even the Transformer movie that's coming out doesn't excite me all that much, even though I loved them as a kid and still look at the new toys at stores.  The only movie this year that's really excited me is 300.

I think it's supposed to tie in his affection toward sharp things, with his ninja sword, gauntlet blades, and pumpkin blades. I guess that was insinuated in number 2 when he had a miniature sword to kill Spider-Man when Doc Oc brought him to the mansion.

I hate his hover board, if that helps any. I absolutely adore the original glider. I think had they stuck with that, and given Harry a modified mask, or even the original mask, it would have ruled.

I agree with the board. Stupid. And IIRC, didn't he find the orignal mask (or another one) in his father's hidden room?? Forgive me, I haven't seen the movies in a while so I could be off. If so, why didn't he use one of those??

It seems that at a LA press junket, Sam Raimi confirmed that Sony is making Spider-Man 4, 5, and 6 (http://www.superherohype.com/news.php?id=5536), although who will be involved is still up in the air.  Personally, I don't especially like it when they "replace" the characters, and also in this case Raimi, but as youthful as Tobey Maguire looks I don't know how it will be by the time 6 would come around.  We'll see I guess.

Post by: Brian on April 20, 2007, 03:12 PM
Yeah, I'm not sure what to think either.  On the one hand, Spidey has been pretty much as "big" to me as Star Wars has ever since my childhood - so that part of me just likes to see more movies.  On the other hand, I don't want to see the quality decline either.  Its kind of like when the prequels came out.  I, like most of us, was so excited for "new Star Wars", but then many came out disappointed because they didn't feel as much like the originals (in some cases).  But, would you rather have not had the prequels at all?  I'm hoping they can keep the cast and Raimi together though, and the quality continues on.  I've really enjoyed them so far, and we have our tickets for 3 ready to go.

I hope they don't change any of the actors either (or if they leave). I agree with Chewie about Batman... losing Keaton and having Kilmer, then Clooney in the next movie just throws it off... now that they've started Batman afresh let's hope that Christian Bale hangs around. I'm also not a fan of multiple baddies in a movie, especially when they kill off one of them (like Batman).

Great movies / series are made in three's.  Anything more than that is overkill.

I'm a big Spidey fan like Brian, but I'm not too keen on more movies.  I'm just not sure where they can really go with the story.  For me, Spiderman has always been kind of soap opera-ish and it's the melodrama that makes the character more interesting.  Ben's dead.  It seems Gwen Stacy is an afterthought.  MJ is Pete's love interest from the start. 

Sure, there are tons of villains left, but I just don't know where they can go with three more.

Couldn't agree more on the melodrama...spidey books for me were not so much about the villain of the month, but more about how the villain of the month was really screwing up Pete's personal life.  And that's what made it magical.

A lot of people are going to hate this movie and rip it to shreds, but I think the problem with it is more of a case of the story needing another pass to make it cohesive rather than it having no redeeming quality. I felt that there were lots of great themes and sequences, it just didn't fit together yet and I think it could have been done well, even with all three/four story lines.

I was not impressed. Spider-Man and Venom are my favorite hero/villian and they ruined this movie. So much potential. My biggest problem is of course how they handled Venom. From the simplest thing to saying I instead of we when he spoke to the end of the movie. I dont want to give any spoilers for those who have not seen it yet, but not what i was expecting. I waited til after the credits hoping there would be something, but nothing.

I agree that it was odd seeing Venom talk without Foreman's face reveal, but I thought his character was spectacular and I'm sure we'll see him again.  I always loved the Venom/Carnage thing.  Never read a lick from the comics, but I was really into the cartoon as well as X-Men in the 90's.

We went and saw it on Friday afternoon, and really enjoyed it as well.  I've seen some pretty mixed reviews online for it, which I can see, but I liked it.  I'll have to let it sink in more, I'm not sure if its my favorite of the trilogy - but I like all three.  I get a little biased though, as I'm just happy seeing Spidey on-screen.  There did seem to be a lot going on, but it was cool seeing some more of Spidey's villains on the big screen.  I liked the Sandman, but would have liked to see him fight in his "normal" form a little more.  I won't get into it anymore in case of spoilers.  I thought Venom looked pretty cool, although he wasn't in the movie a whole heck of a lot.  It sounds like Sony has already confirmed that they will be making 4-6, but nothing on whether or not Raimi/Maguire/Dunst will be returning.  I was happy to see it get the box office record over Pirates, hopefully it can hang onto that.

I think they can redeem themselves. The Studios actually learn a major lesson from how bad they screwed up the pre-Bale Batman movies. As long as they let Rami and Sargent flesh out the story, the next Spiderman film could be just as good as 2.

There was an announcement of sorts this morning suggesting Sony is up for doing another THREE Spiderman movies.  I like them, but that doesn't bode well for quality. 

I saw the movie on Friday as well.  I turned off my brain, suspended reality and enjoyed the movie.  That said, in retrospect there are so very many flaws in this movie it's kind of apalling.  Stray from the comic book much? 

I can't really complain too much without going into spoilers but I have lots of issues (with the movie).  Gwen Stacy.  Sandman's role in Ben Parker's death.  Venom.  Variable effectiveness of pumpkin bombs (or not).

I think the biggest problem with 3 was that Rami didn't want to include Venom, and as a result the Venom story elements fell flat.  It's hard to do things well when you have nothing but contempt for them.  The whole black costume thing was bad.  The way it was introduced.  The way it changed Peter's personality.  The fact that we only saw one relatively short battle with him in it, and in that battle it didn't really help him at all.  The movie could have been much better if had been all red-and-blue Spidey against Sandman, with Osborn thrown in the mix.

Spoilers...







I'm actually happy Rami killed Venom at the end, because this ensures Venom isn't in the next one, so Rami can focus on the villains he's actually passionate about.

I think that's a good point.  I have nothing against Venom, and like him as a villain, but it might have been better to give him a movie to himself - or at least with just one other villain.  I don't necessarily believe in the "Batman theory" that you can't have more than one villain, but I did notice it seemed like there wasn't enough "room" in this movie for everything involved.  Obviously you want to see the Harry storyline wrapped up, and I liked the inclusion of Sandman, but you could see that there could have been a little more backstory built up for him if there was more time.  Like you mentioned, it has been said before that Raimi wasn't necessarily a big fan of Venom, so I think he was shoehorned in a little bit.  The character in the movie was fine with me, just a little brief.  Honestly, I would have rather seen more Venom in another movie instead of Carnage or other symbiote business.  I never got into the other symbiote stuff quite as much in the comics.
Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: ruiner on May 7, 2007, 04:16 PM
Yeah, you could tell Venom was thrown in the mix just to 'throw him in the mix.'  And why not introduce the symbiote as it was in the comics (or at least as I remember)?

Didn't John Jameson accidentally bring it back with him upon returning from a space mission? 


Title: Re: Spider-Man 3
Post by: Mikey D on May 7, 2007, 04:25 PM

Nope.  In the comics, Spidey got the symbiote during Secret Wars after his red and blue costume got trashed.  However, in the cartoon (the 90s one, not Spider-man and his Amazing Friends and not the ****fest MTV one), Jameson's son did bring it back from a shuttle mission.  I haven't seen Spidey3 yet, so I don't know how the symbiote was handled, but I've always maintained that Jameson bringing back the symbiote was a perfectly acceptable alternative, even though it's not comic book accurate.  We know he was an astronaut and just got back from space in Spidey2 and it has nothing to do with Secret Wars.  Try explaining that to the average movie goer.

Saw it on Friday, I'd rank it below 2 (honestly, how can you beat SM2?) but above 1. I did think Venom didn't get enough screen time but what they DID do with him was very cool. I can look past him speaking in first person too.

They did well with Sandman, I liked his whole story. At first I was pissed that they were going to have him be the one who murdered Uncle Ben but I think they pulled it off nicely, and I was pleased.

Topher was great as Brock, and I enjoyed Gwen Stacy... I thought she'd be way too much for the plot but they handled her nicely. I wouldn't mind seeing her return.

Evil Peter RULED. I need those dance moves. Now.

SPOILER response to BillCable's earlier post:
Venom isn't dead, we never saw a body, and in comics if you don't see a body he ain't dead. Even if he's dead, that piece of the Symbiote Conners has could go to the site and get Brock's DNA and become Venom again.

Freeze Dried Movies.com (http://www.freezedriedmovies.com/blog/index.php?/archives/64-Exclusive-Spider-Man-4-Villains-Revealed...-Already!.html) has a rumor up for who will be the villains in Spider-Man 4.  Its probably way too early to know who will appear, but I thought I'd post the rumor for who's interested.  I don't know if listing the characters is spoiler material for some people or not, so I'll just leave the link.

Oh dear, I hope that's just a rumor. Lizard would be cool, but Carnage was a completely different symbiote (plus they'd need a full movie with at least an R rating to do Carnage right). And Black Cat does nothing for me.

I used to watch the spiderman cartoon in the early 70's as a youth-one of my favorite cartoons as a kid
(now you can see most of them again on youtube).

So, as many episodes Spiderman had that included villian Mysterio(my fav, duh) how is it this many episodes gone through without him? Even Rhino was in alot of episodes too. So I wonder at how(and this just speculation based on rumors of next movies villians) villians are determined for the movies? Do they just have to have a good backstory? I admit though I didn't see Lizard much, he does have an interesting storyline to use-hopefully it would not be botched for the movie IF he is used.

From what I recall....Brock partially re-merged back with the symbiote before being blown up and I remember seeing a lil piece of black wiggly stuff on the ground before the the story pressed on.  I thought the piece in the lab would lead to Carnage in the next movie.

Post by: Sprry75 on May 7, 2007, 09:36 PM
It was okay, but it really was clogged up with too many characters and too many subplots.  I would've kept Venom and developed that storyline a little more, and completely left Sandman out of it.

The thing I liked (well, loved) about the first two movies was that each had a theme that was well developed and firmly rooted in the comics.  SM3 tried too hard to force the whole vengance/forgiveness theme, and Sandman seemed shoehorned in just to make that theme all the more explicit.

The same theme could have been more effectively carried out simply between Harry and Peter, and the Venom/Eddie Brock subplot could have been used as a counterpoint if it had been developed a bit more.  The elements were there, anyway (like Eddie vowing revenge for Peter wrecking his career, etc.)

The retrocharacterization stuff that generally wrecks sequels was completely missing from SM2, but was relied on too heavily in SM3.  How convenient that Sandman was retroactively written in to have been the cause of Uncle Ben's death, and how much more convenient that Harry's butler finally comes clean about cleaning Norman's wounds and whatever.  Too convenient, too contrived.

I did like the bad Peter stuff, and Bryce Dallas Howard is ******* hot.  If they do continue with this series, I hope that MJ gets killed and Peter marries Gwen instead.

I thought the movie was good.  I really wish more was done with Venom, and I would certainly hope that he isn't dead.  I think they developed Venm's story very well, as well as Sandmans story.  I'm glad Harry finally died, but I don't understand why there was such a huge build-up between himj and spidey, only to have such a lame ending.  I thought for sure it was going to be spidey vs the three villans.  The 'evil' soidey was pretty good, except for the dancing; how childish.  i think that was thrown in for the kids, much like Jar Jar, the movie would've been fine without it.  I'm still holding my breath for the Lizard, I've been waiting for him since the first spidey.

Yeah, I'm not sure how well a whole mess of villains would be, as cool as the "Sinister Six" might be.  I'm not disappointed in the Spider-Man movies, although the third was a little down for me too.  I did enjoy seeing Sandman introduced, and there were a lot of parts I liked, but overall I enjoyed the first two more.  I have nothing against Venom and I know he has his fans, but the movie might have been better just leaving it to Harry and Sandman or something different along those lines.  Venom probably could have supported his own movie at some point.

I definitely wouldn't mind seeing SM4 focus on the Lizard, as they've built on Connors character a little bit through SM2 and 3.  Vulture and Electro wouldn't be bad at some point either, a couple more classic baddies added to the mix.  Personally, I do hope they are able to keep Raimi on.  The weaknesses/criticisms of the third film aside, I like his overall "vision" of the Spidey universe, and would like to see it continue.  It sort of sounds like he was forced into shoehorning Venom into the last movie too, so that might have changed his original vision for that movie - since many found it disappointing.  Anyways, I'm anxious to hear some news either way on the Spidey franchise's future.
Title: Re: Super Hero/Comic Book Movies
Post by: JediJman on June 26, 2007, 12:37 PM
They already set up Dr. Connors as a character, so it would be a shame not to have him in a future sequel.  I like the idea of the sinister six - either bring back Doc Oc (we never really see him die) or replace him with a different major baddie.  To do this right though, you just need to have a sotry where all six of them are gunning for Spidey at the same time as a group.  My problem with 3 is that you had 3 baddies after spidey, but they were just kind of on their own, so it felt like they were trying to cram 6 hours of story into a 2 hour flick.

The Lizard would be great, especially since Dylan Baker is apparently up to the role. I would also like to see Carnage (Could be formed from the piece of symbiote Dr. Connors still has in his lab.) make an appearance, maybe spread over Spidey 4 and 5.

I've said it before, but I will not be happy with the Spidey franchise until Ben Kingsley puts on that vulture suit.

Or maybe Patrick Stewart?
Title: Re: Super Hero/Comic Book Movies
Post by: Brian on June 26, 2007, 04:01 PM
Agreed on Ben Kingsley, he would make a great Vulture.  I remember reading at some point during the development of SM3, Raimi met with Kingsley about the part of the Vulture, before Sony/Avi Arad pushed him into having Venom in the movie for the fans.  Hopefully if that is true, that means that Kingsley would be open to the idea.  I believe it was from the Making of Spider-Man 3 book or something like that, but I'm not sure as I don't have it.

I don't like Rami's idea of Sinister Six. There's too many new villians that need to established.
Here's who shoudl be in the enxt Spidey trilogy:
Spider-Man 4:
The Lizard
Kraven the Hunter or Scorpion

Spider-Man 5:
Mysterio
The Vulture
Black Cat (Not so much a villian as a partner for Spidey)

Spider-Man 6
Carnage
Shocker
Venom (return as an anti-hero)

A Venom movie in the works?:

Question: And the other thing of course is you haven't really left Marvel behind completely right? I mean you're still personally involved in Hulk and Iron Man ...

Arad: ..and Spiderman. And I'm making Venom.

Question: Have you had discussions already about a Spiderman 4?

Arad: We are just talking about it with Sony.

Question: Do you think it's going to happen with the same people?

Arad: As I said, we are just talking.

Question: And how is Venom coming along?

Arad: Awesome. Awesome.

Question: When do you start, when do you announce who and cast and ...

Arad: Ah, soon. Soon. You know ....

I saw that this morning as well.  Lots of rumors about Black Cat lately....McAdams, Julia Stiles, and now Hathaway.  I don't have a problem with any of the actresses really, but Julia Stiles in particular doesn't seem like a good fit.  I like Hathaway as an actress, but never pictured her as Felicia Hardy/Black Cat.  She could be a good choice though.  I'm just anxious for some new Spidey movie news :), and its nice to have something showing up...even if it is just rumors.

In a purely piggish way I'd be happy with Hathaway playing the role of the Black Cat.  I think she's a very good actress, has the body and can be extremely hot.  Perfect fit, IMO though it'd be quite a shock to see her as a blonde/white hair.

I certainly don't feel like any of those actresses really "fit" the role of Felicia, but who knows.  A lot of people were skeptical of Robert Downey as Tony Start, but after seeing him in IM I can't think of anyone that could possibly be a better fit.  I'm not a big Megan Fox fan, but that's the type of actress I initially link to someone who could fit the Black Cat personality.

I've always been somewhat disappointed in the casting of Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane, since I thought Alicia Witt was far more fitting for the role.  Sadly, Dunst's acting and general lack of enthusiasm in the role of MJ hasn't done anything to quell that initial disappointment. 

Anyway...I really think that Rachel McAdams would be great as Hardy.  While I think Anne Hathaway is a brilliant actress (if you haven't seen "Rachel Getting Married", do yourself a favor and do so; easily her best performance in her still young career), McAdams seems more capable of doing an about-face in character both between roles and within a role.  Anyone worried about her voluptuousness (if that's even a word) should check out the "Sherlock Holmes" trailer to see just how hot she can be. :)

Man, I hope that isn't true.  Especially the "vultress" part.  It is still pretty early on though, and we've heard crazier rumors before tied to superhero (or even Star Wars) movies.  I'm hoping Raimi sticks more with the "classic" stuff that he likes more, at least according to most of his interviews.  Personally, I'm hoping for the Lizard - and if they really need to stick another villain in there, Kraven might fit into the same type of story.  I'm fine with Felicia/Black Cat making an appearance too otherwise.

I agree, Spidey 3 was my least favorite of the trilogy as well.  I can't say I hated it, but there was a lot about it I didn't care for.  I did really like Sandman (and Thomas Haden Church in the role), and didn't even mind Topher Grace playing Eddie Brock/Venom (and Venom looked pretty decent), but it probably should have been held for another movie.  Aside from Venom though, I think I'd rather see more "classic" villains before we go down the Carnage/additional symbiotes route now.
Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: efranks on December 8, 2009, 02:18 PM
I'm in favor of Lizard.  They've already established the Curt Connors character with Dylan Baker in two films, why not bring him back?  And I like the idea of Kraven, if you have to have two villains in the film.  Me, personally, I'm happy with one bad guy per film.  Spider-Man 3 was a wreck for most of the film, partly because there were too many plot lines.

Venom should have been the solo villain in a movie, not tacked on.  If they hadn't used him in 3 then 4 should have been his film.  Sandman could have stood on his own in 3 and that would have been fine.

They could also skip Black Cat IMO.  If Dunst doesn't come back as MJ then I'd be all in favor of introducing Felicia Hardy, otherwise, skip her.  Save her for another film, if they do another.  Don't throw **** in just because this might be the last film...which is basically what they did with Venom.

Agree with you and e. 

As an aside, didn't they bring in Venom for 3 for pretty much the sole purpose of getting rid of the character because Raimi didn't like the character? 

Also agree there are ample villains without going down the symbiote road.  I think Venom was great in the books, but I started losing interest in the whole Carnage line simply because of the gratuitous slaughter. 
Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: efranks on December 8, 2009, 03:44 PM
I thought that Venom made it into 3 because Marvel wanted him in.  It wasn't a given that there would be a SM 4 and they wanted Venom on screen so it was now or never.

But, it's been over 2 years since all that was talked about so I could be forgetting something.  Plus, too lazy to read this thread to see if it's in here somewhere.

Im in favor of only classic villains in these films but some characters just dont transfer well to the big screen.  I hated the updated look of the Green Goblin and it did not remind me of the comic at all.  The Vulture or Rhino imo wouldnt transfer well either.  Doc Ock, Sandman and Venom all looked good visually, even though none of the films really captured the true comic.   There are only a few great villains left that I would love to see; Kraven, Lizard, Shocker and maybe Mysterio.

I really don't get why they need to reboot a franchase every few years.  How many Star Trek films were there all pretty much in continuity?  Even the last "reboot" could be interpreted as in-line with the other movies.  I didn't love them all, but it's a better way to go than restarting every 2-3 movies.  Ridiculous.

Sort of disappointing to hear.  Aside from Spidey 3 (which the studio/etc. meddled with a lot), I really enjoyed Raimi's take on the Spidey world.  At the same time, I hope they do a great job with the reboot.  I can sort of see wanting to start Spidey younger (they mention him being in high school in the "reboot"), and although I really liked Maguire in the Parker role...its not like I don't think anyone else can play him either.  I'm disappointed we'll have to wait until 2012 for a new Spidey movie, but I hope it is a good one.  The whole "reboot" thing is getting out of hand though.  It is difficult with Sony being involved, but I do wish that they could come to some sort of agreement where Spidey can be a part of this shared world with the Avengers and other Marvel Studios things.

I'll agree with you there: I don't see the need for all manner of rebooting for films.  I'll disagree in a sense with Trek - I think it was desperately needed if only because the actors are now so damn old.  

But just move on for most of them, forget about the crap and carry on.  

X-men - I like the actors in the characters they play for the most part so just write a better script.  Here's a novel thought, try to stay truer to the comic origins - you might be surprised how well the general public would receive that.  

Spidey - same deal here; for the most part I like the actors or at least have gotten used to them.  Good script = good story = good $$

I can handle them getting new actors for any role, particularly if any given actor is being a dick about it.

My point on Trek was that they made 6 or 7 movies with the same cast and even movies with next gen and the latest were in the same continuim.  That was meant as an example where you don't need to reboot the franchise to be successful.  OBviously with the latest flick, they did a reboot, but it was a long time coming before that.

Quote
Mike Fleming and Nikki Finke have just confirmed that Sony Pictures decided today to reboot the Spider-Man franchise after franchise director Sam Raimi pulled out of Spider-Man 4 because he felt he couldn't make its summer release date and keep the film's creative integrity. This means that Raimi and the cast including star Tobey Maguire are out. There will be no Spider-Man 4. Instead, Mike Fleming is told, the studio will focus on a Summer 2012 reboot from a script by Jamie Vanderbilt with a new director and a new cast. All this took place today at meeting on the lot today. An official Sony Pictures news release about it is expected out now

Quote
Tobey Maguire just released this statement to me: “I am so proud of what we accomplished with the Spider-Man franchise over the last decade. Beyond the films themselves I have formed some deep and lasting friendships. I am excited to see the next chapter unfold in this incredible story.”

Agreed about the Trek reboot, I think that was a good idea too.  They can work in certain situations (the new Hulk movie was a great improvement over the first I thought too), and I'm willing to see where this Spidey one goes as well.

I'm all for Spidey being a little younger as well.  I liked Tobey Maguire in the part just fine, but he was starting to look a little older I thought.  I do hope they keep some things that worked with the movies though, particularly the costume.  I thought that was one of the better superhero costumes transitioned to the big screen, and hopefully they keep that (or something similar).  The casting will be most interesting (I certainly hope they don't go the "Disney" route), and hopefully we'll start hearing more over the coming weeks/months.  It sounds like a "starting from scratch", but I also hope they could keep J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson though.  Out of all the movies, I think that was one of the best casting choices overall.

I also don't think we need to see another rehash of the origin story, at least not taking up the majority of the movie.  I think most people, even the general "non fan" public, knows how Spidey got his powers.  If they wanted to do a condensed version (similar to the opening of the rebooted Hulk movie, or even last year's Wolverine), I think that could work.  Start off the movie when he's already Spidey, and go from there.  I wonder if the villains already used are "off limits" as well, or if we could see them again eventually as well.  I don't think we need to see them in the first movie obviously (I wouldn't mind seeing the Lizard), but down the road possibly.  I'm really interested to see where the series will go from here.  I was a big fan of the movie series itself (particularly the first two, some of my favorites of all-time)...but at the same time I'm not totally against recasting/rebooting before Spidey was 40 years old.  I do think Raimi had a pretty good take on Spidey's world (except I'd like to see more humor/banter from Spidey himself), so I hope whoever takes it over next can bring that same respect and love to the character as well.

I am suprised they are rebooting Spider Man.  It seems like that franchise just got started.  The 3rd one was not the best but that's because they shoved way to much stuff into it.  It had Sandman, The Goblin 2, Venom, and a black Spidey outfit.  I think they just should have made another one with Tobey and had him fight one villian.  Now we are going to get Peter Parker falls for Mary Jane, gets bit by the spider, becomes SpiderMan, and most likely fights the Goblin.  We just saw that film it seems like.  Hopefully it comes out good.  I truly hope they don't try to make it all dark like Batman though.  I am not in the mood for a serious Spidey.

I posted about this on the PSWCS message list.

I'm highly disappointed with the notion of a reboot. For one, it's WAY too soon.

I can't really picture anyone else playing Spidey buy Tobey McGuire now. Kind of like Hugh Jackman/Wolverine.

Granted the third movie was a bit over the top, but it's a movie about a super hero, what can people expect.

I don't like the idea of a dark Spidey. He's ALWAYS been "you're FRIENDLY neighborhood Spiderman." Not "you're moody angst driven Spookeyman..."

I prolly end up seeing it, but I won't look to make this a must see on Premiere night like I have with all of the other Spidey movies as of late.

This certainly won't make me want to buy any toys from the flick.

That's something that has scared me a bit about some of the press release stuff released from Sony (or maybe it was some "insider info", I don't remember).  They were saying they wanted a more "gritty and comteporary" take on Spider-Man.  Contemporary can be ok, but "gritty" isn't really about what Spider-Man is.  It is sort of like awhile back when WB was saying they were starting from scratch with all their hero movie franchises, going "darker" off the success of the Dark Knight.  We've discussed it in the Super Hero movie thread before, but dark and gritty works for something like Batman....but not Spidey.  I'm willing to keep an open mind about the reboot, and in a way I sort of like Spidey starting (and staying) in HS for a little bit since that is how it was in the comics...I just hope they get a good cast/director to steer the ship here.  Oh, and they have to keep J.K. Simmons as JJ :).

This is a perfect example of Hollywood studio executives who don't have any kind of a memory.  2002's Spiderman was first and foremost AN ORIGIN STORY.  And Spiderman's origin story is one of the best known of all comic book character origins.  Not an insignificant consideration. 

And then look at the box office gross's of the three Raimi/Maguire movies:
Spiderman:  $821,708,551
Spiderman 2:  $783,766,341   
Spiderman 3:  $890,871,626

Why would you argue with the business success of this team?  Roughly $2.5 billion in worldwide box office gross is nothing to laugh at.  If that team is having a hard time either scheduling the project or finding the right script?  Let them take their time.  Because ultimately it is the work of the director and cast that translates to a great film...not some studio exec.

Recasting the Hulk franchise and changing directors didn't lead to a demonstrable uptick at the box office.  Both movies performed comparably at the theaters.  But look at Iron Man.  You had a great cast with a savvy director and the result was a movie that outgrossed both of the Hulk films combined.  I sense a bit of a pattern at work.

Well I don't see too much of a problem with that. They made tons of money for Marvel and now they want a bigger cut. Makes sense. Marvel would still have to approve any story, and I think a story involving Vulture (which is what Raimi wants) should have been out of the question for Marvel.

It's like football players wanting more for doing better for a team.

Personally I'd rather see other villains than what Raimi wants to do, but so long as the movies stay popular, I'm certain they'd get around to some of them. Electro and Shocker in case you were wondering. In fact due to the similarities both could be in the same movie as maybe an evil team against Spidey.  Mysterio might be worth checking out, but he'd need a serious upgrade for the times, IMO.

I'm sure nothing is anywhere close to official, but the latest rumblings is that Sony is talking to Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) to direct the next "new" Spidey, and that it will be shot in 3D.  Grain of salt, and all of that....but I hope we get some news on the new direction before too long (especially casting).  If they are going to go younger/high school age with the reboot, I hope they get actors young enough to stay in the roles for awhile (and not necessarily cast 30 year olds as high school students).  It can work in some cases I suppose, but I'm hoping they can find a good cast that can stay with the franchise for awhile.

Another article (http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Did-Spider-Man-4-Die-Because-Raimi-Wanted-It-To-Be-Like-Avatar-16585.html) about what may have killed the Spider-Man 4 movie with Raimi (with the primarily details being that he wanted it to "be like Avatar" and the storyline involved the Vulture, Peter falling in love with - and being engaged to - the Vulture's daughter, then Spidey killing the Vulture and feeling guilty and giving up being Spider-Man at the end of the movie).  Who knows what is true, or if it even matters anymore, but its interesting to read.

Marc Webb as director of the next Spidey movie is now confirmed (http://www.newsarama.com/film/spider-man-4-marc-webb.html).

Also, it is uncomfirmed at this point, but it is rumored (http://www.superherohype.com/news/spider-mannews.php?id=9001) that the new movie series will feature mostly unknown actors/actresses and will draw inspiration more from the Ultimate Spider-Man series than the classic comics.

I've always been a fan of big franchises like this using some lesser known actors and actresses.  I see the director and producer's points of view, they want a name to draw people in, but the down side is if the franchise takes off how do you get the "name" actor to stick with it?

I think Harry Potter is a great example.  Could you have done that film in the US with whatever "hot" child actors of the moment were, and get them to comit to 7 (now 8) films over 10 years?

Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: efranks on February 11, 2010, 11:12 AM
The only modern 3D film I've seen is Avatar and I really liked it.  I thought what Cameron did, not making the 3D aspects intrusive or blatant, was excellent.  He used it to his advantage, but didn't throw stuff at you just to prove he could.

On the other hand, the trailer for the new Alice in Wonderland film (which isn't even broadcast in 3D) looks like they have stuff in there just because it'll look cool in 3D.  Not a fan of that.

In Avatar, a whole new world was created and 3D helped to suck you in and make you feel a part of it.  Even though there were real world components to it, the alien look set it off on it's own.  Every day we walk through the "3D" real world of buildings and cars, you don't need to make a film set in reality 3D to tell a good story.  Spider-Man, for example, doesn't need to be in 3D just so the director can try to wow us with a web shooting at us or Spider-Man swinging out of the screen.  It's just use of technology for the sake of using technology.

It's like every commercial using bullet time after the Matrix came out, just because they could.  Now it's just a gimmick to the point of being mocked in films as often as it's used constructively.  Unfortunately, it's looking as if 3D will be the new gimmick for this decade.

I don't hate 3D at all.  I think it can be quite effective and has certainly come a long way.  I also don't see the need for it.  Movies have been enjoyable for a very long time in a 2D setting.  For one I don't like wearing the glasses because I find them uncomfortable (I don't wear glasses in real life - yet) and I really don't like paying to use them once.  It's just not reasonable to me.  I didn't choose to make the movie 3D so why am I being forced to see it that way.  Only one theater when I saw Avatar (or any of the kids movies in 3D I've seen with my daughter) - no choice whether to pay the premium or not. 

I've never jumped back in my seat at an effect at a 3D movie and honestly, aside from the blurriness associated with the film without the glasses, I'd watch it that way.  I can see why there's interest but I really don't think the world is going that way.  It's just a trend.

I understand the marketing aspect of it.  But what if I don't want to wear glasses the whole time I'm watching TV?  And for that matter, constantly viewing things in 3D with those glasses on won't have a negative impact on your eyesight?  Two to three hours is one thing, but for those that sit at home and watch six hours a day?  Meh.

We finally made the jump into HD in the past couple weeks with a new TV, and a couple of the blu rays we've tried out are Spider-Man and Spidey 2.  I have to say, although I have an open mind about the whole "reboot" thing - and look forward to seeing more Spidey on the big screen - after watching these again, it is disappointing they couldn't have continued the series.  I could have went either way on Dunst, but I liked Maguire pretty well as Peter Parker/Spidey - and the supporting cast is for the most part superb.  Plus, I think the costume is one of the best big screen hero ones yet (and I hope they don't change it much), and the overall "look" of the movies was pretty good.

I guess the rumors about what was going to happen in the next movie (Raimi's version), it might be for the best that they are rebooting it too.  I generally thought Raimi was a great guide for the franchise, but some of the later stuff I read didn't sound too spiffy.  Anyways, hopefully we'll get a better idea of the direction of the reboot sooner than later, because I'm anxious for some more Spidey movies.

Although 26 seems a little old to be playing high school (if that is indeed still the plan), I'm willing to give this guy the benefit of the doubt for now.  He does have a Peter Parkery look to him, as long as they can tone down the hair a bit (which I'm sure they will).  I'm just glad something is happening on the Spidey movie front, and hopefully it will be good.

I really wish that Marvel was able to have the whole universe tie together though, as they are currently doing with the Avengers stuff (Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Cap).  It likely won't happen ever, or at least for a long time with rights at Sony and Fox, but it would sure be nice if Marvel (and now Disney) had control over Spidey, the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Daredevil, etc. and could include more cameos or even just expand the shared universe in general.  Especially since the majority of them are based out of the same city in the comics.

Of the people we've seen/heard rumored for this part recently, I was sort of hoping someone like Emma Stone would get it as well.  She seems to be a decent actress, and has a somewhat "MJ" look (more so than Dunst).  I also liked the one time rumor of Mary Elizabeth Winstead (who was recently in Scott Pilgrim), but I think that fell off the radar awhile ago.  Just glad to see more news picking up on the Spidey reboot.

With the Zack Snyder/Superman news, I suppose that is good.  Honestly, as much as I've wanted to see Watchmen (and the rest of 300) it has just been difficult with a little one in the house to set aside 3 plus hours to watch a movie like that.  They do seem to be pretty well received (at least by the target audience if nothing else), and Snyder at least seems to "know his comic books".  Hopefully we'll get a nice Superman movie full of him actually punching someone :).  From what I understand, this is a total restart as well - but I guess we'll get more details in the coming months.  I saw this morning that Zod is rumored as the villain, so we'll see.

I know that Stone is naturally a blonde, but it seems funny how Sony almost goes out of their way to cast opposite for the female roles - a blonde haired Kirsten Dunst for MJ, a red-haired Bryce Dallas Howard for Gwen Stacy, and now Stone (known as a redhead) for Gwen.  At least it looks like we'll have a more significant role/build up of Gwen Stacy from the beginning this time around.

I disagree.  Thin works well for Spidey.

I've been thinking about muscularity for superheros like Superman and Spidey.  Since their strength is derived from outside sources, wouldn't it make sense that they'd find it difficult to become musclebound?  I mean, how does Superman work out to blast his pecs?  Lift mountains?  Wouldn't it require extraordinary effort to build muscles when they're super-strong due to sci-fi radiation?  Spidey could already lift a car with his nerd build after being bit. 
Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: Brian on January 14, 2011, 10:40 AM
Although he does look kind of skinny, I think thin works for Peter Parker/Spidey as well.  Still muscular, mind you, but he doesn't need to be "buff" either.  As for the costume, I like what I see - at least so far.  I really liked the previous movie costume, but I can understand why they would want to change it up and make a "break" from those previous movies since this is supposed to be a reboot.  As long as the rest of the costume doesn't get too wacky, and the mask/eyes of the suit look good, I'll be happy.

As far as the web shooters, there is speculation that on the enlarged version of this photo you can see something on his wrist that look very mechanical web-shooter-like.  That would be cool.  I will say, I think that Andrew Garfield, at least from the very little we've seen so far, does look the part (Peter Parker at least) pretty well.

According to IGN (http://movies.ign.com/articles/114/1144625p1.html), there will be no J.J. Jameson in the upcoming Spidey reboot - at least in the first movie.  If this is true, I'm a little disappointed.  I can see getting away with not having him, and perhaps introducing him at the end of the movie or in the sequel, but I think I'd like it better if we had JJ from the start.  It looks as if the Bugle is included (as set pics have shown a Bugle van), so it will be interesting to see if they just avoid Peter getting his job there for the time being (and that comes later) or something else.  Or, IGN's report could just be misinformed too, so we'll see.

The new look is growing on me.  Granted, the costume from the original Spidey trilogy was about as good as you can hope for in a comic adaptation, but I can see why they may have wanted to change it up a little bit.  I guess I'm just excited that another Spidey movie is on the way, and hopefully it won't disappoint.  Andrew Garfield - at least looks-wise - reminds me more of Peter Parker than Tobey Maguire did - although I did really like those movies (particularly the first two).  Spider-Man 2 remains one of my all-time favorites, in fact.

I'm pretty sure Sony was obligated to make a movie or forfeit the rights to Spider-Man back to Marvel.  So after SM4 failed to materialize, they didn't have many other options.  That's also the case with the X-Men franchise, I believe.

Although we haven't seen any footage or anything, I am happy with the cast and pretty excited for a new Spidey movie.  I also don't see the point of "rebooting" necessarily though, as I think everyone (even non comic fans) is pretty familiar with Spidey's origin at this point.  I sort of wish they would have done something ala the last Hulk movie (Incredible Hulk) and just incorporated the spider-bite/origin into the opening credits sequence or something.  Then move on to the action.  Other than that, I have liked what I've seen so far for this movie.

For the life of me I can't figure out what's different about it than the first Sam Raimi movie.  That POV stuff at the end of the trailer looks terrible... very bad CG.  Looks like video game stuff.  With a year to go until it's released, I have to think that it's not final and won't be like that in the movie.

I think the studio execs definitely wanted people to be talking about the movie going into Comic Con.  And no doubt there will be an SDCC Hall H panel about the movie sometime this week.

From the trailer, I got that they want to play up the teen angst angle of Spiderman, and maybe tap into that audience.  FWIW, I think the POV shots of Spiderman doing some wallcrawling was actually somewhat interesting.  I wasn't checking it out in the HD settings that Yahoo movies offers, so maybe there's still some work to be done there.  But I think it's an interesting way for this new movie to set itself apart from the Sam Raimi trilogy of movies.  In those we saw a lot of web-slinging, but not as much wallcrawling.  In this regard it seems like the director is trying to distance his work from what Sam Raimi did, and I can't say that I blame him.  Oh, and I'm also glad to see the mechanical web shooters are back!

A stated goal of the studio - hence the initial selection of the director of 500 Days of Summer to helm this project.

Trust me, this is my business, and that CG was bad.  It looked like a mid-tier video-game cinematic and if it's not still being worked on I'll be amazed.

In this regard it seems like the director is trying to distance his work from what Sam Raimi did, and I can't say that I blame him.

It's going to take a lot more than some wall-crawling to differentiate yourself.  STORY is the most important part, and from the looks of it, it's not going to be any different in that regard from what we already have seen and read.
Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: Nicklab on July 20, 2011, 11:08 PM
Rob, I get that.  It is a TEASER trailer, after all.  If this movie is still a year out, it still has a lot of refining to go through.  I would not be surprised if they were still in principle photoraphy, if not pickup shoots.  And I doubt the POV wallcrawling is going to make it into the film.  This teaser seems like it is very likely something the studio was pushing for SPECIFICALLY for the week of Comic Con.  It's not a coincidence that it was released today.

As for story?  We have to wait for the movie to figure out if this is going to be any good.  Stylistically the director seems to be trying to make a break from what Sam Raimi did.  From a lighting and story perspective they already seem to be trying to make Peter Parker much more of an angst-ridden kid:  orphan, raised by his Aunt & Uncle, isolated in school, etc.  The Raimi trilogy tried to touch on that but also tried to bring in some of the humor that was part of the Spiderman story.  That was a good part of the charm of that series, along with the Bruce Campbell cameos.  Will this re-boot work?  We have to see the movie to make that determination.

The movie is almost a year out.  July 3rd, 2012 is the release date.  It's the first trailer.  At this point I have low expectations since some Sony studio exec probably told the director "Get me a trailer in time for Comic Con or you're fired".

Having watched the trailer you can count me in the group that is questioning the need for a reboot at this point.  I'm pleased with actually starting with Gwen Stacy instead of leaping headlong into an MJ relationship but beyond that not really seeing the point.  Straight to video for me is where I see this one heading. 

Question: did this director get his start doing a different genre of POV movies?   :-X

That answer is very simple:  it was all about money. 

Sony had the option to keep Spiderman as long as they would keep producing Spiderman films.  They had to commence production of a new film by a certain point in time, otherwise the rights to Spiderman would revert to Marvel studios.  They could not get a 4th Sam Raimi / Tobey Maguire movie greenlit, hence the decision to reboot.  The three Spiderman movies had grossed over $2 billion for Sony, so with a cash-cow like that they could not just let it go.

I knew this was the case, but count me in with the group that wishes Sony and just let the rights lapse.

The same contract stipulation exists with Fox having the rights to the Fantastic Four. I know that they have to have another movie by a certain date or the rights revert back to Marvel on that franchise as well, which is why Fox has a FF reboot planned for 2013. (which I suppose allows them to retain the rights)



Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: Morgbug on July 21, 2011, 01:28 PM
I'm familiar with the economic reasoning too.  But that doesn't address the point of the reboot.  Couldn't they have simply found a new story arc to go with?  Sure, you need all new actors to fill the roles but it's not like the comics are devoid of other villains aside from Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Venom and Sandman.  Move on.  Find a new story out of the what?  500+ issue of Amazing Spiderman and completely ignore all the other titles?  Adapt a screenplay and giddyup.  But no, instead we get a re-telling of the origin of Spiderman with some different side plots (death of Parker's parents, love interest with Gwen).  That's maybe fine and dandy for the geek crowd who would go if you wrapped a turd in chocolate but the general public?  They already saw the movie and aren't interested in subtle tweaks.

I wish it would happen, too.  When you look at how a guy with amazing comic world credentials like Kevin Feige really helped steer Iron Man (and subsequent Avengers related projects) in such a positive direction for Marvel, you can see that there is the potential to do right by these movies.  The first FF movie was ok in it's time, but Iron Man just made it look like dog**** in retrospect.  I would love to see the way Kevin Feige could steer FF or Spiderman.  And the potential to have a completely contiguous Marvel film universe is really tempting.

But when over $2 billion in past earnings was on the table for Sony with Spiderman?  I can see why they opted to hold onto the rights for Spiderman.  And Fox will likely hang onto X-Men, too.  They've made a lot of money with that franchise, and thankfully "First Class" wound up being a pretty good movie.
Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: Brian on July 21, 2011, 02:44 PM
I'm excited because its a new Spider-Man movie, but I can't say I'd be any less so if it was a continuation with Tobey Maguire, Raimi, etc.  I'm fine with the new cast, and don't have a problem with it at all, but I sort of wish they were skipping the "origin" again.  I think even the general audience is abundantly clear with how Peter Parker became Spider-Man at this point.  That said, at least they are using a new villain and not rehashing someone we saw in Raimi's trilogy (at least not yet).  I don't know if studios are a bit wary of just switching actors in and out after what happened with the original Batman movies (Keaton/Kilmer/Clooney) - although we know that isn't the biggest factor in the declining quality there.

Like Brent mentioned, I do like that this new film is getting to the basics with having Gwen Stacy come first and MJ later (I'm guessing anyways).  I know I'm really looking forward to it, but I sort of look at the comic book movies through the eyes of a 10 year old.  When the first Batman movie came out, I really liked it and was always hoping we'd see a Spidey movie someday - let alone things like Cap, GL, Thor, etc.

This is the best news I have heard all day. As a DIEHARD FF comic collector, I am more than ready to replace my memory of that dreadful franchise with something all new. I mean, I literally do not think they could possibly do any worse.

It may just be because I'm a big Spidey fan, but I'm really looking forward to this.  I wasn't all that impressed with the initial trailer last year, but I thought this one looked pretty good.  I also read a recap of some of the other "sizzle reel" footage they showed at those various locations yesterday, and it sounded like it looked pretty good (and included more humor/quips, which I always felt was missing from Raimi's trilogy).

Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: Brian on February 7, 2012, 12:12 PM
I think, from what I've heard, that they did try to keep the budget down more compared to the Raimi Spider-Man films.  We'll see I guess.  I agree though, I don't want it overly dark or anything either.  I'm in the camp that feels properties like Spidey don't need the "Dark Knight" treatment.  It works for some characters, but not for others.  That said, I do like what I see so far.  I would have been fine if the Raimi films continued as well, but I like the cast/direction here so far from what I've seen.  I do think, no matter how good, that this movie will have a hard time beating Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises at the box office this summer though.  There just seems to be a lot more buzz with those franchises, which I'm excited for as well.

Great. So now not only are there convoluted comic backstories, now we have to have them in the movies also?  So is this a straight Ultimates origin or did they tweak that and come up with something new there also? 

For example, in the original Spidey origin didn't he date Gwen during high school and Mary Jane came later which they swapped in the Raimi trilogy.  In Ultimate universe did he still date Gwen first or are they screwing with that part of it in the movie again?

Yeah, I talked to some friends who didn't see it either.  Seems to be on a theater by theater basis, for some reason.  We were able to see both Spidey and TDKR with our showing of Avengers.

From what I understand, it isn't necessarily a straight "ultimate" version of the story, although it may have elements from both universes (and maybe some new stuff).  I can't say I'd be any less excited if another Raimi/Maguire version was on the way, but I'm excited since it is a new Spidey movie nonetheless.  What I've seen so far (particularly the recent trailer) has me pretty excited.  I'm sure it isn't going to hang with Avengers/TDKR in terms of money or anything, but I'm still excited for Spidey to hit the big screen again.

Man, I really wish Marvel could get everything "under one roof" again though.  It would be so great to see the cinematic universe crossing over even more with Spidey, Wolverine, Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Daredevil, etc.  It is too bad they couldn't even just work out a cameo or something, but the studios are all too greedy for that it seems.  Not that a movie like Avengers needed more going on, but it would be neat to see that type of "invading army" scenario where heroes are showing up from all over to help out.

Technically they are under one roof now. Disney. However there are so many contracts that need to expire, it will take a long time before Disney can do something with everyone by themselves. In the mean time Disney just rakes in the licensing money and builds up the DisneyXD channel.

Still, wouldn't it have made sense for Sony to allow/encourage the use of the new Spidey in the film if only for a cameo to promote the upcoming film?  I suppose it may confuse people that in Avengers NYC is devastated and then in Spidey it is normal.

I know many aren't super excited for this, but I have to say I'm pretty happy with everything we've seen so far.  Honestly, I'd be excited for just about any Spidey movie that was on the way most likely, but I do like the looks of the cast/story for this one.

The Amazing Spider-Man kinda was....amazing. Had issues but overall I may have liked it better than the first SM.  I definitely liked the Spidey part of it...thought Garfield made a better Parker/Spidey than Tobey did and it was just fun.  I don't even want to think about it too hard right now.

I thought it SUCKED. Spent way too much time on high school shenanigans, and Peter was only Spider-Man for maybe 20% of the movie. I paid to see Spider-Man, not High School Musical.

I'm also interested in Rob's thoughts on the CGI, if he sees it. I know he criticized it during the initial trailers, and everything looked like a video game cutscene to me... not good at all.

Yeah Emma Stone was hot though.
Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: Brian on July 3, 2012, 10:30 AM
We're not able to go until tomorrow, but I can't wait.  From the trailers and clips I've seen so far, it looks pretty good to me....and Garfield seems to embody Peter Parker pretty well.  Many reviews have said he is nearly perfect in the role (as with Stone), even if the movie itself isn't perfect.  The main drawbacks I've seen in most reviews is that they are redoing the origin, which I guess I can understand.  When you know it so well, it seems like they are just repeating themselves.  It is unavoidable, but it is too bad that it will just get compared to the original Spider-Man, although it is a different start altogether.  Anyways, still looking forward to seeing it.

I've been watching the Raimi movies recently leading up to this new one, and still enjoy those as well (although not 3 as much obviously).  Spider-Man 2 remains one of my favorite movies, and the original one is great too.  Watching it again last week though, part of me starts to see how it has aged a bit and maybe isn't as strong of a story overall as it originally seemed.  I still enjoy it, don't get me wrong, but I start to see the faults a bit more now than I used to.  Fun movie though, and it was a exciting year with this and AOTC both being released.

Post by: iFett on July 3, 2012, 03:54 PM
I liked it.  I don't feel that too much time was wasted in the school, but parts from the first movie are recycled and I didn't care for that.  Did they have to be the same?  I no read comics so don't know.  Stan Lee cameo was nice as usual.  Never liked Tobey as Spiderman...
Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: efranks on July 3, 2012, 04:16 PM
I actually liked Tobey as Parker/SM because he was an unexpected choice and I thought he rose to the occasion and that impressed me.  But, having now seen Garfield in the role, I liked him better. 

I'm only a passing fan of Spider-Man, never read much of him in comics, but knew the origins story obviously, and had some idea of his rogues gallery.  But my main exposure to him was in the various cartoons over the years and he's always been a wiseass as Spidey and I thought Garfield captured that better.  Plus his fights as Spider-Man seemed more like "Spider-Man" than Tobey's did.  Even though I didn't mind the change in webbing for the first trilogy, I have to say that I was really excited to see the web shooters make a comeback.

It was also nice that even though they retread the origins story, they didn't go with Green Goblin as the first villain and that was a great choice.  It's one of the reasons that I liked Batman Begins so much, they picked an unexpected villlain rather than going with the Joker straight out of the gate.  Now, if only we could get an X-Men movie where Magneto didn't end up being the main bad guy...

We got one - last summer - X-Men: First Class, Magneto and Professor X were on the same side for about 95% of the movie, it wasn't until the end of the movie he went bad...

 ;D

(sorry, I'm a smart ass)


Back on topic.... I'm going to see it tonight, can't wait, have been looking forward to this. I just hope they can keep the series going with the current schedule they have planned - I think they already have sequels planned for 2014 and 2016 - better to strike while Garfield is still young and can easily get away with portraying a teen/20-something Peter Parker.

Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: Brian on July 3, 2012, 08:44 PM
Yeah, I hope they can keep with this schedule as well.  I know that the first sequel is definitely scheduled for May of 2014, and hopefully we'll get a third not long after that.  I was reading an interview yesterday with the producers (Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach), and they strongly hint that they are looking at a Sinister Six team up down the road.  They mentioned that Avengers (as a team up movie) seemed to be doing alright for itself, and that it would be interesting.  I know something like that could go horribly wrong, but at the same time, the fan in me would love to see it.

I think after seeing him in pleasantville ruined it for me as him being a superhero + I never read the comics, but watched the toons in the 90's so the character never really fit him imo.

Saw Spider-Man and loved it.  I liked the Raimi ones a lot, especially the second one, but I think I actually preferred this one.  Really good.
Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: Brian on July 4, 2012, 09:15 PM
Saw it this afternoon as well, and loved it.  Now to be honest, I'd be pretty excited for about any Spider-Man movie that was coming out, as I tend to just be happy to see my favorite hero on the big screen.  I thought it was a great movie though, and Garfield is pretty spot on as Peter Parker.  I was a fan of the Raimi movies (again, Spidey 2 is one of my all time favorites), but I think this new franchise is off to a great start and I can't wait to see where they go from here.

I can see where some people are pointing out the fact that some of it seems like "been there, done that", simply because they include the origin in this movie again and it hits some similar beats.  That being said, I think this origin is better than what we saw in the original Spider-Man.  Looking at the two movies objectively, and not just which one came first, I think this one had a better overall story and stronger acting and characterization.  Emma Stone is lovely of course, and I thought the Lizard turned out well too.  Also, if it hasn't been mentioned, stay through the credits as there is a scene about mid-way through that sets up a sequel (but is also confusing to some degree).  Anyways, overall, it was a great movie and may be my favorite Spidey to date just due to the portrayal of Peter and having a wise-crackin' Spidey.  I didn't have a problem with Tobey, but this Spider-Man was closer to what I think of from the comics I've been buying since I was 5.  Great stuff.

Post by: BillCable on July 12, 2012, 09:58 AM
I saw Spidey last weekend.  It was ok, but it didn't blow me away.  I felt a lot of the character scenes dragged on and weren't that interesting.  But then I'm not in the Emma Stone fan club like Eric.  She's fine but she doesn't enthrall me.  The action scenes were better.  I'm a bit tired of the obligatory "the citizens of New York save Spider-Man" plot point.

It was a decent set-up film.  It accomplished what it needed to as a reboot.  I liked how the origin was handled and the mechanical web spinners... though I can't image how Parker was the first person ever bitten by those industrial spiders.

PS: Those were about the most ridiculous "high school" kisses I've seen on film.  It almost felt like watching porn...

The Cut scene confused me too. 

Is this a story taken from an "Alternate Universe" or something?  Or just somebody deciding to re-imagine the whole thing?

Admittedly my Spiderman knowledge comes from "The Amazing Spiderman and Friends" on Saturday mornings and the occasional stack of comic books that were thrown in my lap at the beginning of family road trips.

Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: Brian on January 29, 2013, 11:03 AM
I always kind of liked the Rhino as well, so I'm looking forward to seeing him on the big screen too.  I definitely wouldn't say that Paul Giamatti was the first name that popped into my head, but you just never know.  I didn't know about Heath Ledger or Anne Hathaway either, and look how that turned out.  Plus, I know Giamatti came out a couple of years ago saying that he wanted to play the Rhino - way before the Amazing Spider-Man movie was even a thought.

I'm ok with two villains in a movie, but any more than that can get too busy.  It all depends on how it is handled I guess.  Look at Nolan's Batman (which for the most part everyone loves), every movie has multiple villains: Batman Begins (Scarecrow, Ras Al Ghul), Dark Knight (Scarecrow cameo, Joker, Two Face), Dark Knight Rises (Bane, Catwoman, Talia Al Ghul, Scarecrow cameo again).  Sure, it can be horrible in some cases (Spidey 3, Batman and Robin, etc.), but I think two can be handled.  As crazy as it sounds, the kid in me would love to see the Spidey series slowly build up to having a Sinister Six blowout.  Handle the character background/build up in the previous movies and then lead to an all-out action Sinister Six movies.  Ideally, in Spidey 6, although it is unlikely they'd keep the cast for that long (or they'd be too old).  Anyways, Rhino sounds good to me.

Dear Hollywood,

         p.p.s - So was Kingpin


I applaud diversity as much as the next fella, but there is something to be said to staying faithful to the original source material. Jamie Foxx would make a kick-ass Luke Cage, or Black Panther. Or that cyborg dude from Teen Titans.
Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: BillCable on January 29, 2013, 01:58 PM
I think that's a short-sighted view.  EVERYONE in comics was white until 1969.  The original source material was influenced by racism.  I don't see a problem abandoning that precedent.  I think as long as the choice makes sense, that studios should be free to ignore the race from the source material.

Dr. Doom - Eastern European, so white.
Batman - billionaire industrialist, so white.
Black Panther - African, so black.
Alicia Masters - New Yorker, so... whatever.

That's just my opinion, though.
Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: McMetal on January 29, 2013, 09:06 PM
Yeah, I can appreciate the historical context, but I wouldn't go so far as to concede the source material was influenced by racism. Not sure Stan Lee would agree with that either. If anything, comics were more socially progressive in many ways than a lot of other mainstream media at the time. I just think they were reflective of a different society than what we have evolved into today is all.

It's like Disney trying to pretend "Song of the South" never happened...come on guys, I saw that movie in the theater! Are people really going to come after you with torches and pitchforks if you release it on DVD domestically?

I say it's all part and parcel of the whole, gotta embrace it warts and all.

Post by: JediJman on January 30, 2013, 07:59 AM
I am with McMetal on this one.  You can add Nick Fury to that list (yes, I know the ultimates version was black) and Heimedal and now Perry White as well.  For me it isn't a race issue, but a matter of staying true to the character's look.  If they made Iron Man purple and green, he wouldnt look right.  How about Storm with red hair or Wolverine with a ponytail?  Thor with a black haired crew cut?  These are iconic characters that shouldnt be messed with just to drive more diversity in the audience.

Yeah, I can appreciate the historical context, but I wouldn't go so far as to concede the source material was influenced by racism. Not sure Stan Lee would agree with that either.

The comic writers themselves weren't racists.  But they made decisions knowing racism was a major factor in their audience.  They knew readers wouldn't buy the comic if the Fantastic Four was a group of black people.  Comic writers at Marvel did strive to include blacks after the company was successful enough to survive any backlash, but they were well aware in the early '60s that they were writing books for white boys in a time when racism was the norm.  So that's why I say the choices were driven by racism.

If they made Iron Man purple and green, he wouldnt look right.  How about Storm with red hair or Wolverine with a ponytail?  Thor with a black haired crew cut?  These are iconic characters that shouldnt be messed with just to drive more diversity in the audience.

But those are all ridiculous and stupid.  Making Electro black isn't the same as making Storm a redhead.  The essence of Electro's character isn't that he's white.  And when you make movies now, unless the essence of a character is his race, that factor can and should be ignored.  There are tons of black electrical engineers out there, so it's entirely plausible that in 2013 one of them might be the electrical engineer that stumbles into some super powers.

And Marvel has proven that they can even push that limit and succeed.  I wasn't entirely on board making Heimedal, a Norse god, black.  Norse gods are white, after all.  But Idris Elba did such an AMAZING job in the role he won me over.  Now I couldn't imagine anybody else as the character.  So sometimes even when they cross that line, they win.
Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: JediJman on January 31, 2013, 11:47 AM
How is turning Electro from a white guy to a black guy any different than changing the hair color on Storm or giving Iron Man's suit different colors?  Is changing the color or someone's skin any more or less dramatic than changing the color or their hair?  Why would Iron Man be red and gold anyway?  Seems like combos of gray and silver would make more sense, wouldn't they?  Why does Thor need long, blonde hair?  Is the essence of Thor really his hair?  Man, imagine the reaction fans and press would have if they had made movie-Storm a white girl.

The fact is that they want to keep the main characters true to form and more marketable, but seem to want to make secondary (or less) characters different races just to push audience diversity.  If you're bringing in black actors because they are amazing actors and will fill the role better than someone else, I can accept that.  If you're bringing in black actors just to create buzz about how you switched up someone's race or to try to make the movie's mass market appeal greater, then that bothers me for some reason.  It just seems phony and forced.

I'm really digging the new suit, maybe the most comic-booky of all of them so far.  That said, I've really liked all the suits so far from both the Raimi trilogy and the Amazing Spider-Man.  I have to laugh though, looking through some of the comments at places like SHH or elsewhere, where people - as usual online I guess - just have to complain about something.  I remember when the costume was revealed for the first Amazing Spider-Man, everyone was like "what's with the eyes, where's the belt, what's with the shoes", and the "they should have just stuck with Raimi's costume, that was perfect" type comments.  Now, this new suit is revealed, and its "Webb is just copying Raimi now" and "I'm disappointed they didn't stick to their guns with the new suit", etc.  Really can't win sometimes :).

SM3 was a mess because a storyline the director didn't want to do was forced on him by the studio.  I don't think two villains is necessarily a horrible thing.  Especially if one sets up the other (ie - Rhino's rampage causes Electro's accident, who then blames Spidey for his suffering).

There's still a chance Green Goblin will show up in this new Spider-Man, in which case it would be pretty crowded.  Nothing confirmed yet, though.

Another shot of Giamatti:

Not major news, but Sony has already confirmed dates for Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4 (June 10, 2016 and May 4, 2018), so there should be a Spidey movie every other year from here on out.  I personally liked the new movie (particularly the cast) last year, and the suit for the sequel looks pretty great I think.  I hope they aren't trying to cram too much into the next movie, but I'm optimistic.  Glad to see they are looking to get multiple movies out of this cast.  I want to see J.J.J. (really would like it if they brought back JK Simmons, but I'm not counting on it, and I'd like to eventually see the Sinister Six, even though the multiple villain thing doesn't always work out - it would still be cool.

Did anyone pick up on the fact that the article hints that the role of Mary Jane will be recast should the character be introduced in the next Spider-Man movie?

Sounds me like everyone here is just "saving face" and the actress herself was HORRIBLE and they needed her gone.

It could even be a situation where Marc Webb liked her but once a Sony exec saw some footage with her as MJ, the exec was like "get her the hell out of this movie"....

If they were just gonna have her back in two years, then the cover story of not wanting to cloud Peter's love life would be believable.

Since the two baddies are Rhino and Electro, I'm hoping the movie ends with the birth of the Green Goblin and that we don't get the death of Gwen in this movie either.

Likewise.  I get the notion of moving beyond the 1970s comic books, but it still makes me sad that someone thinks this is ultimately better.  I'll still watch the movies and I'll likely still enjoy them quite a bit but most of the Marvel stuff has been an improvement with a nod to the originals, this just kind of threw them out with the bath water.   :-\

What I'm wondering is how the heck are they going to cram all of this into a 2 hour movie? They appear to have 50 storylines going on at the same time, with Peter's past/parents, Green Goblin, Electro, Rhino, and the rest of the Sinister Six... this is going to be worse than Spider-Man 3. I saw an interview recently too where the director said Rhino is only in the film for like two minutes. Why even bother at that point?

To set up the gajilliony-dollar Sinister Six films/franchise that they announced, of course.

More and more it's looking like this is my least anticipated summer superhero flick.  Might not even catch it in theaters at this point (full disclosure - I ended up waiting for Netflix for the first one too).

Maybe he serves as the intro villain?  "We join our hero Spider-Man mid-fight against the evil super-villain Rhino!"  Explosions.  Knock-out.  Rhino to jail.  It'd be better than them starting out with Peter knocking out some mugger.

Title: Re: The Spider-Man Movie Series
Post by: Brian on May 2, 2014, 10:07 PM
Got a chance to see this today as well.  Some things I liked, some things could have been better.  I sort of look at the Spidey movies through rose colored glasses.  I got my first Spidey comic when I was 5, basically learned to read with Spidey comics, and have been hooked pretty much ever since.  I think Andrew Garfield makes a great Peter Parker/Spidey, and his chemistry with his real-life girl Emma Stone as Gwen is very well done as well.  I really liked Dane DeHaan as Harry as well.  The Spidey suit in this movie is my favorite of any of them I think, and looks like it came right off the page.

Electro, I wasn't really sold on.  Not sure why, just wasn't working for me.  The movie seemed to jump around a lot as well, but I think a lot of that was due to future movie/movie universe set up.  The Rhino stuff was pretty minimal, but has some potential.  I'm glad that had more of a resolution to the whole story involving his parents set up in the first movie.  All in all, not perfect but an improvement on the last one I thought.  I will admit to having problems completely disliking anything Spidey or Star Wars, and tend to watch a lot of these popcorn movies like a kid would.  I'm always just excited to see these heroes on the big screen, whereas it was just Superman (and later Batman) when I was a kid.  Pretty good movie though, and I'm curious to see where it heads from here (staying spoiler free as possible).  As a side note to those with kids, our daughter (who is a Spidey fan) didn't enjoy it.  Thought it needed more action and was "too sad" in parts.

As for an after credits sequence, I had already heard about the clip from X-Men (as part of the deal to get Marc Webb out of his contract with Fox apparently), but others in our audience were like "what the hell?"

Dean DeHaan.  His dad is a member of PSWCS.   8)

He was actually on Fallon this week, and asked if his parents were fans.  He talked about his dad having a basement with "floor to ceiling Star Wars and a Princess Leia dartboard", and mentioned that the first thing he wanted to do after finding out his son got the role was to tell his "comic book group".  Kind of a neat story.

Post by: Nicklab on May 3, 2014, 04:04 PM
Sony owns the rights to Spiderman, and Fox has the rights to X-Men.  So any tie-in does seem a little forced.  But I can see studios that have the rights to Marvel properties trying to work together in an effort to present a similar kind of continuity to what Disney and Marvel studios have been able to establish to great effect.

As for this movie?  Eh.  Probably going to skip it.  I tapped out on Spiderman movies after the third Raimi/Maguire film.  The reboot seemed like a clear case of Sony trying to retain the rights, rather than letting Marvel and Disney regain control over Spiderman.  I've had multiple opportunities to check out The Amazing Spiderman on cable, and I just don't feel any interest.  I hope that at some point the rights are going to revert back to Marvel Studios, because their projects have really given a lot of fans a sense of optimism that these comic properties are in good hands.

That was a huge plot point in Spidey's comic history.  And it's something that I would expect to get explored since that event had so much of an impact on Peter Parker going forward.  Sam Raimi looked like he might have been going there with his series when he introduced Gwen Stacey in Spiderman 3.  But when Sony decided to reboot that effectively ended the possibility of that happening in the established Raimi/Maguire series.

I thought it was pretty good. Definitely a good set-up movie to the ASM3 and beyond.

I would much rather see Sony trying to "work things out" with Disney/Marvel so that Spidey/Peter could appear in Avengers movies and maybe conversely characters like Hulk/Thor/Iron Man/etc... could show up as cameos in Spider-man movies.

While I tend to enjoy the X-Men movies from 20th Century Fox - they have started to get to the point where their own movies contradict each other SO BADLY it's actually starting to get embarrassing - so I would actually prefer for Sony to distance themselves from the X-Men franchise.

Just got back from seeing the movie and I thought it was great.  I've been a fan of Spider-Man since the original animated cartoon when I was a kid as well as his exploits on the Electric Company, but stopped reading the comics when the whole clone saga started (only to resume when Joe Strazynski took over for a while).

Does anyone hear read the Ultimate storylines?  I have a few questions in regards to Peter's parents, since in the comics I read, they were a non-factor.  If so, please PM me....I don't want to clog up this forum with it.
