I liked the POV part at the end. I guess that would be even better in 3D.

But.....Can someone that has more information on Comics comment about the Father and Mother scene shown? I don't remember any information in any spiderman that eluded to his real parents.

Wouldn't that take away from the dynamic that is Uncle Ben and Peter's relationship? When he sees his "parent" die in Uncle Ben is when he decides "with great power comes great responsibility" and decides to take on the superhero image. That has ALWAYS been the story unless I missed something in the comics.

1. Not a fan of another Origin story less than 10 years after the original, been there done that...

2. It looks like postmodern/Emo dark and brooding crap.... doesnt fit the tone of Spider Man

3. It just looks like a badly done film, with crap CG and a protagonist who looks even less likeable than the last version of Spiderman.

I really hope it bombs spectacularly, just to teach them a lesson. There's just no reason for this movie, aside from the fact that they wrongly think they can make a shitload of money with it.

2. It wasnt an Origin story, Marvel was smart to avoid that.

I think Sony still owns the Spider Man rights? I dont think this is a Marvel Studios production like the Avengers series. I could be wrong...

Yea, i was just reading up on this....Sony/Columbia does still own the rights to this, just like FOX still controls the X-Men.

The reason they keep making Spiderman and X-men is because the studios will lose control over them and the rights will revert back to Marvel Studios if they dont continue making movies. Im sure Marvel would love to control these two properties again.

they are going for another money frab of course because they'll lose the rights to Spiderman if they didn't make another movie within the 3 year window after the last one. Then the full property rights go back to Marvel

So, somehow, eventually, the rights will get back to Marvel and we can all look forward to yet another reboot. In the meantime, I really don't think this trailer looks that bad.

I think Garfield and Stone are very fine actors. I'm not really chomping at the bit for this, but it certainly doesn't look bad. I'll see it. Just maybe not in theatres. And I think it has the potential to be better than Raimi's first Spider-Man film.

Jawshco
07-21-2011, 02:49 PM
Spider-man has always been my favorite comic book superhero, so I hope all movies about him are good. I was stoked when Raimi made his spider flicks. I'm a huge evil dead fan, and his first two Spider-man movies are two of my favorite comic book movies. The 3rd movie sucks out loud, so I try to pretend it didn't exsist, and wish Sam would have been given a 4th movie, but alas... We have yet another Spider origin movie.

This trailer is so-so. The tone of it seems a bit off. It overplays on the tragic parts of the story. Those elements are always there- so as long as this Spidey manages to handle it with his usual humorous quips I'll be okay. I like addition of Peter's parents- we haven't seen that part of his origin yet. New take on the web shooters is fine, & the costume is so-so. However, that POV nonsense looks like a poor video game. That part was awful- hopefully it's not in the movie.

Both the cartoons and the comics have rebooted Spider-man a few times. Now movies
Are following suit it didn't really bother me in those other medias so I'll try to give this one a chance.

It looked better to me watching the trailer on the big screen, but the first person bit at the end seemed like a gimmick out of a video game trailer. I was surprised by how much they had in the trailer, though; they haven't been shooting all that long IIRC.

I'm not as vehemently against remaking it as other people. All I really care about is whether it's good or not, and a minute of it isn't enough to tell.

IMO, they would have been better off just starting with a new cast and storyline. What i dont like is another origin story. Boring and predictable so close to the last one. Everyone by now is very familiar with Spideys origin. Why waste another 30 to 45 minutes of your movie setting that up again?

Exactamundo, sir. Spider-Man is the biggest superhero cashgrab outside of Batman at the moment. EVERYONE knows who Spider-Man is.. Le sigh. It's all about the paper...

EDIT: I guess I can give them points for attempting to flesh out Parker's parents and that whole relationship dynamic... But the more I think about it, no. No, I can't. I won't pretend to have read every Spidey comic, but I am a Spidey fiend. As far as I'm aware, Parker's parents have never been a factor, in any incarnation.

While I understand why the studio is doing it, I don't see the public being too terribly enamored with a reboot of a franchise that was absolutely beloved until the massive turd that was Spider-Man 3... Spider-Man was the most successful opening of all time for a reason. Spider-Man 2 was one of the best comic book movies ever made; at the time, probably THE best.

This just feels unnecessary. Batman needed to be saved. Superman needs to be saved. Green Lantern is gonna need a reboot if the second one is as bad as the first. At this point, even the Hulk reboot was pointless since they fired Edward Norton for reasons unknown and cast Mark fucking Ruffalo.

I'll be fapping to Emma Stone tonight, no denying it, but this feels like it would set a dangerous precedent if it were to work, and I'm almost hoping it doesn't.

In the animated series in the 90s, I remember there being a big arc about how his parents were American spies in the Soviet Union... what came of that, I don't remember. But it was a fairly big deal if I recall correctly.

I'm wondering if this a way to plug him back into the marvel universe.
I heard somewhere that they are going to introduce the infinity gauntlet into the MU in the Avengers movie, which means there's actually something planned that is bigger, and involves even more characters than the Avengers.
Which means Thanos is coming! Baddest MFer to ever be Illustrated.
if you like, or ever liked comics, read the Infinity Gauntlet series.

It made it come across like I was being critical of the Raimi movies and I'm not (well, not the first two). It was more about the perception of the new one. The trailer makes the new one look dark, and apparently it isn't. Spider-man is supposed to behave like Spider-Man in the books, it's not an emo movie or anything like that.

I've been calling for "them" to do a Secret Wars/Infinity Gauntlet movie ever since I first saw the animated Final Fantasy movie. An Infinity Gauntlet movie would be so massive that the best way to do it would be that FF type animation, imo.

Either way, it would be awesome.

Not sure if we disussed it already, but i believe Sony had to make another one so they didnt lose the rights. Like what FOX keeps doing with X-Men.

Im sure Marvel would love to get total rights back to both.

Yeah, I get that. Kind of like how they're pushing another Superman movie out. At least Fox got the last X-Men (more) right.

And really, Marvel SHOULD have the rights to these, seeing as how the brought these characters about and all.

Yes. Sony had to make another movie or the rights revert back to Marvel I believe?

It looks good, but I wish it wasn't another origin story. It just doesn't feel all that fresh to me, but I like how they seem to be going for a little more realism in the Spidey action scenes. Not as much cartoony CGI.

I totally agree. I love the first 2. William Dafoe as Green Goblin was just behind Ledger's Joker in my view. He was great. That third one though....yeah....it sucked.

I thought it was way too soon for a reboot as well. That was my first thought when I heard about it. I also wasn't sure about who they cast as Peter/Spidey. However, after seeing the trailer, and also finding out Emma Stone and Denis Leary were cast...it looks pretty good.

I have a feeling they're gonna be rebooting Batman pretty soon after TDKR. Which is ok with me. Even though they probably won't be as good as the Nolan series. The more Batman, the better. Batman's my favorite superhero story by far. Best villains.

I totally agree. I love the first 2. William Dafoe as Green Goblin was just behind Ledger's Joker in my view. He was great. That third one though....yeah....it sucked.

I thought it was way too soon for a reboot as well. That was my first thought when I heard about it. I also wasn't sure about who they cast as Peter/Spidey. However, after seeing the trailer, and also finding out Emma Stone and Denis Leary were cast...it looks pretty good.

I have a feeling they're gonna be rebooting Batman pretty soon after TDKR. Which is ok with me. Even though they probably won't be as good as the Nolan series. The more Batman, the better. Batman's my favorite superhero story by far. Best villains.That Green Goblin costume was horrible, though.

But Andrew Garfield is easily three times the actor that Toby is. If the movie sucks it won't be because of a downgrade in principle casting.

Too many new characters.
Terrible film representation of Venom.
"Dark" Peter Parker
Lack of substance.
Too many Raimi family members w/ speaking roles.
Melodrama.
Lack of vision and consistency.
Mediocre acting.
Poor storytelling.
Spider-Man 2 really raised the bar/hard to meet expectations.

It should be interesting to see what they do with the origin though. It's obviously being expanded from what we've seen before. This seems to have a lot to do with the mystery of his parents. Which is brand new. I'm not even sure if the comics have ever really tackled that.

So, yes, while I agree with that I'm a little burnt out on origin stories, I am open minded as well. I expect it'll be something very different.

This movie looks awesome.

Tobey Maguire was a great Peter Parker in 1 and 2. The writing for the Spider-Man sequences was always bad, and Parker/Spider-Man both were terrible in the third.

Where was the smartass comments? In the comics, thugs take just as much of a verbal beating as a physical one. Maguire barely said anything as Spidey, other than screaming for someone to hang on, or yelling in pain.

This new movie already seems to have the smartass Spidey in the works.


Next off, Spider-Man 3 committed the ultimate sin in my book. The developers took the Spider-Man lore and took a giant shit on it.

SANDMAN KILLED UNCLE BEN?!?!?

Ohhhh get the F*** out of my face with that bullshit.

Lets draw it out in crayon for those who dont know what Im talking about here.

Peter Parker used his newfound abilities as Spider-Man for personal gain. Looking out for number one. When it came time to step in and stop a robbery, Pete just stepped aside and let him go. Not his problem. Later, Peter's Uncle Ben is killed by the armed robber that he could have stopped, but didnt.

He learned in the hardest way possible that with great power, comes great responsibility. From that point, the guilt over what happened to his Uncle Ben drove Peter to become the superhero known as the Amazing Spider-Man.

Now in 3, they come off and say oh by the way, THIS is the guy that really killed your uncle.

So basicly, even if Pete had stopped that armed robber, Uncle Ben would still be dead?

F*** outta here.

There was absolutely no reason to write into the story that Sandman was Uncle Ben's killer. If you cant find a better way to incorporate Pete going Black-Suit crazy on someone, stop making movies about my favorite superhero.

Then there was that Green Goblin 2 but on a jet powered snowboard....yeah, whatever.

Venom....just...no. They killed off arguably the most popular Spider-Man villain of all time after twenty minutes of screen time, with a damn pumpkin bomb.

The same kind of pumpkin bomb that blew up right in Harry's face and gave him a few burns, but its going to kill Venom.

Bitch please.

Spider-Man 3 was a terrible film from a story, and source material standpoint. It looked okay, and had some cool sequences to watch, but overall that movie was shit. Its like Raimi intentionally fecked it up because Avi Arad forced him into having Venom in the third film and he was pissed off about it.

That emo shit...God.

This new Spider-Man movie looks like a much needed breath of fresh air. Back to the comic book style personality for Spidey, the mechanical web-shooters, it looks like its gonna be awesome.

Just to add something else (I swear I'm not trying to pick on this film but) I'm still not sold on the director.
His only film is 500 Days of Summer which I found to be mediocre at best. Believe me, I hope I'm dead wrong cause I want this film to be good but I'm just not feelin the trailers.
What I would of loved is having a film where Spiderman is in his late 20s/early 30s and the origin has already been established. And also for the villain, I would of loved to have either Venom or even Carnage. I think they could of pulled this off since cgi/motion capture is so good nowadays(hire the people at Weta who did Rise of the Apes & Gollum from LOTR).
Oh and have a more proven director at the helm instead of Marc Webb

As a long time Spidey fan, I'm excited that the villain is the Lizard. Trying to defeat the Lizard without harming Doc Connor in the process was always a challenge and the Lizard was one of the villains that could match Spider-Man in speed. I just hope they don't make him too "CGI-y".

He doesn't really look the part but at least he acts the part. Tobey did neither. Plus, the 3D might help, as the "webswinging through town" parts should look good.

This movie looks awesome.

(Reasons)

I agree with you about some things. The Sandman/Uncle Ben idea was a horrible one - if you can't make that monstrosity intimidating without completely sabotaging the main character's motivation, you're not worthy of being a Hollywood writer - but the cinematic universe can survive Venom's death. If nothing else, they can just have another blob of the material show up, maybe resulting in Carnage, which I'm sure the Spider-Man fans of the world would love to see.

But even that aside, there are things about this movie that really make me think it's going to be a stinker. They're changing the whole backstory, adding in the "Daddy Issues" which worked so poorly when they were crammed into the first Hulk movie, and replacing Jameson and MJ with the much less interesting George and Gwen Stacy. Bleh.

Lizard looks to be the high point, but I'm even apprehensive about that, seeing the obviously-fakeness of, for example, the claw-raking effects. It just screams a movie that's Green Lantern bad.

Long 6-minute IMAX trailer was released with "MiB3". Looks decent. The 3D looks pretty good (on a giant screen, at least). They may have planned this movie as filler, to keep hold of the rights, but it's looking more and more like a flick that will make a little cash, especially with "Avengers" keeping Marvel/superheroes on the mind. "GI Joe" was yanked from release, probably because it was coming out days ahead of this film and would probably get assraped at the box office.

'Venom' Movie May Tie into 'Amazing Spider-Man' Avengers-Style ó EXCLUSIVE (http://www.hollywood.com/news/Venom_Movie_Amazing_Spider_Man_Avengers_Style_Avi_Arad_Matthew_Tolmach/30237794)

Besides being one of the year's biggest box office winners, the success of The Avengers is already showing off its creative influence throughout Hollywood. For more than a decade, superhero movies and franchises were coveted summer tentpoles, recognizable characters with epic adventures ripe for adaptation ó but Marvel's The Avengers upped the ante. The comic book titan's five years of strategic interconnectivity and world building, beginning with 2008's Iron Man, paid off with a grand crescendo, one that resulted in approval of fans and big returns.

Other studios foresaw the success even before Avengers hit theaters. Earlier this week, we learned DC/Warner Bros. is moving forward with their plan to assemble the Justice League, and based on Hollywood.com's conversation with The Amazing Spider-Man producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach, the world of Spider-Man may be in the for the same interwoven storytelling.

While promoting Spider-Man, Arad and Tolmach alluded that their next project, Venom would be developed in a similar fashion that could potentially tie the films together. "What I'm trying to say to you without giving anything away is hopefully all these worlds will live together in peace someday," hinted Tolmach. Venom , which Chronicle director Josh Trank is rumored to helm, will follow Eddie Brock, a character previously introduced in Spider-Man 3. Don't expect any carryover, as Venom will be following Amazing Spider-Man's modern, realistic approach.

"It's an Eddie Brock story," explained Arad. "We want to be as close to the comics as possible. Especially in Eddie Brock's story. But again, pseudo-sceince is becoming science. All these tidbits about webs, artificial webs, is a huge industry now. Spiderwebs have unique qualities that will be huge for communications, fibers, and so forth. So we have taken the approach that we want to make the huge amazing movie about Eddie." Commitment to reality and tangibility is a key factor to Amazing Spider-Man. From Arad's description, the scientific slant will be a point of interest in Venom.

Tolmach and Arad insisted their Eddie Brock, who was drawn in early incarnations as a muscled man, would be more grounded. "He was a journalist. He had the wrong story, he got in trouble for it, he got fired," explains Tolmach, who also went on to describe his and Arad's approach to adapting Marvel properties. "The whole essence to us for the Marvel characters. Stay close to the bible, stay close to the emotional story, and the rest is fun."

When Venom eventually hits theaters, expect it to feel intrinsically connected to July's Amazing Spider-Man. As Tolmach puts it: "Look for the worlds to make sense with one another."

I've been wondering about all of this, and have come to the conclusion that SW is probably going to be written out of the on-screen Marvel universe. The time-lines are just too difficult to tie together. The alien will have to come from somewhere else.

79% on RT right now, not too shabby. Hell, as just a reboot of the original story, if it helps wash Tobey Maguire out of my mind it'll be worth it. Worst choice ever for a superhero.
Forgot all about Ben Affleck as Daredevil, Nic Cage as Ghost Rider, or the guy from Nip/Tuck as Dr. Doom, then, have you?

At least those guys look the part. Spidey fans got stuck with this, not for one but for three films. One of the worst casting choices in film history IMO.

Here's why they should have done. Just continue on with the franchisee like the Bond movies do. There was no need to show the origin story again. I would guess most people don't care who plays Peter anyways.

Yes. Toby was such a bad casting that all 3 spiderman movies are numbers 3,4 and 5 of top grossing superhero movies of all time.

I liked Spiderman as a kid, but I'm not over the top knowledgeable about it. I'm just saying as a "lay person" this shit is stupid and unnecessary. It actually almost pisses me off. Hollywood has nothing new. Nothing.

Next they'll re-boot Superman again for the 600th time or some shit. Or since they have the Avengers, next they need to do the Justice League...then have a movie will all of them in it...

I actually had a bigger problem with Emma Stone as a high-schooler. Garfield is thin and geeky enough to pull it off. Stone, while only 23, does NOT look like a 17-year-old high school girl for the most part. They should've set it in college instead of high school; not sure why they did that.

I, for one, am looking forward to this movie. I loved the first 2 Spiderman movies with the second honestly being one of the best comic book movies ever. My complaints on the third, more so than emo spidey and too many villains was that I knew that Venom would get the backburner. Venom, along with Gambit, are two of my all time favorite comic book characters. They don't deserve to be side characters the way they were.

But this movie has what I want it to have, The Lizard, a more realistic spiderman (although I too liked Maguire), Emma Stone, and Emma Stone. Who gives a f*** if these two don't look like high schoolers, it's not like they're getting Betty White or Steve Guttenberg in there, you don't complain about the reality of the movie at all but Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield as high schoolers, HOLY SHIT! RED FLAG!!!

I did like the spin this director and actor put on Peter Parker. I don't read the comics but, from what little I remember as a child in the 70s, Parker was simply portrayed as 1) attempting to perpetually avenge/correct the death of Uncle Ben, 2) being slightly nerdy in that he liked to take pictures and didn't look like Adonis, and 3) was a wiseass. This film and portrayal bring a little more depth to that story by fleshing it out (only child, felt abandoned by parents, brainy, seems IMO to have a bit of ADD/Asperger's).

I also liked the Lizard aspect of the story. I didn't feel he was a throw-in villain; he's integral to the storyline, the creation of Spiderman, and Spiderman's creation of the Lizard. You feel bad for the guy a bit, even.

And I want to do very bad things to Emma Stone.

8/10 Garfield was great. Stone was good, too. Rhys Ifans was great as Conners but got a little moustache-twirly as the movie went on. Sheen was a fantastic Uncle Ben, though Sally Fields was a little hit and miss as Aunt May.

Peter/Spidey was written with much more depth and care than in the past. My only real gripe with the movie is somewhat two-fold. I love the cheesy lines as they are integral to Spider-man's style, but some of the plot points stretched the confines of acceptable hokeyness. The plot also fell victim to a number of well-worn cliches. That's not the end of the world, but in a reboot of a movie that is a mere decade old, you should really do what you can to surprise and engage your audience.

Overall, great job. It's a LOT closer to what the first movie should have been and I loved the first two films. I am really looking forward to the next one.

I thought this movie was awesome. Spoilers if you read any further.








First off, I love how its a cheese-free movie. No raindrops keep fallin on my head, no electric slide, none of that bullshit. It was a far more real feeling movie than any of the previous three. There's real emotion in the story and Garfield portrays this incredibly.

The way they do the death of Uncle Ben in this one I liked a lot better. You go right from seeing Peter do the completely wrong thing, to Ben trying to do the right thing, but is just not strong enough and is shot and killed. No dying last words, he's just gone. Its effin brutal. The fact that they go a different route than the comics with Peter not catching the killer serves the story in that his mistake is going to gnaw at him for the forseeable future, not having any closure with it.


Loved the Spider-Man fight scenes. His incorporation of his web shooters in the fights was awesome and something that the Raimi films just didnt do very well. He moved like Spider-Man should. Fast and agile, all over the place and looked cool as hell doing it.


I did have a couple of nitpicks with the movie, some regarding just how careless Peter was with his identity. Using his powers in front of people to do a backboard shattering dunk from the 3pt line, Iron gripping a basketball in an open hand, and casually tossing a football into a goalpost that got severely bent. All this and nobody ever questions what is going on.

Then he uses his camera with his freakin name plastered on it in the sewer, revealing who he is to the Lizard. He flat out tells Gwen who he is, and he gets unmasked by Captain Stacy as well. I mean, damn. What the hell is the point of the mask? As Spidey says early in the film "Nobody seems to grasp the concept of the mask." It really rings true for much of this film.


Didnt like how they handled Captain Stacy, but this is more of a "book is better than the film" scenario. In the books, Captain Stacy just figures out who Peter really is, and he reveals that in his dying words to Spider-Man after sacrificing his body to save a small child from falling rubble during a throwdown between Spider-Man and Dr Octopus. His last words to Peter are "Take care of her, son. She loves you very much." Not the forcing of Peter to make an empty promise to stay away from Gwen. Having the Lizard kill him was just as unneccessary to me as having him cuff and unmask Peter in the street.



Thats about it. Awesome movie I thought, and with the great portrayals of Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy in this movie, its going to be absolutely brutal emotionally if they decide to do the Green Goblin arc.

Anyway, great movie. Plan on seeing it again and definately buying it when it comes out on blu ray.

Anyone else annoyed how the one main gripe of this film is that its too soon of a reboot? All these reviewers on Rotten Tomatoes who hated the movie had the same, Deja Vu it was done ten years ago mentality and I see these reviews as empty words.

You knew it was going to be a reboot. You want them to continue on the same storyline with a new cast, new director, and new vision for how Spidey's story goes? Given it was 20 some odd years after the original films but lets ask Superman Returns how that venture went.

Rumor had it that Sam Raimi couldn't get his vision for Spiderman 4 out in time for the July 4th weekend of this year so Sony went with the reboot and new people instead. I commend Marc Webb and the entire crew for getting something like this out in that amount of time. I think it was time for Raimi to move on anyways. I really don't think Spiderman 4 would've masked 3, in all honesty, especially with supposedly Morbius as one of the main villains. Unless you did Carnage, it had no shot imo. Its like if they tried to make movies after X3, after you've killed major characters that never died in the ways they did in the comics, you've destroyed that franchise, and its time to restart.

Instead of griping about the speed of the reboot why don't you tell me more intricate details about the movie. The cast, the action scenes, the tone, the emotions, ya know everything else that goes into a movie. It's a one trick pony show from a reviewer that focuses on one innate point like Matt Cassel does on Dewayne Bowe. Get over it and do your job.

Now I went to see Prometheus in the theater, in IMAX 3D at that because of the reviews on here for it being worth it for its great visuals...however, that movie was certainly not worth the extra money for IMAX 3D and was not really worth seeing in the theaters. I was greatly dissappointed as the story/plot was just silly and in general not very good. So am I to expect this movie IS actually a good movie worth seeing in the theaters?

If you like Spider-Man and would like to see a pretty good movie about Spider-Man's origin and a story about the origin of the Lizard, go see it.

Its a comic book film. Watch it as a comic book film. If you do that, you'll enjoy it, but if you park your ass in the seat with your "just gimme a reason to shred this movie on CP when I get home" glasses on, then yeah its a waste of your money.

You actually believe those instances youre describing, compare in ANY way, to Raindrops keep fallin on my head, The Power Ranger reject, or the electric slide?

Gimme a break. The crane sequence doesnt even qualify if you were awake during the film.

The Crane sequence is about the people of New York coming to the aid of Spider-Man. Could he have made it to Oscorp without them? Sure. Probably not as fast, and Marc Webb is quoted as saying that when he thought about how he would shoot it, he wanted it to be more realistic and use the pendulum swing. This was a way he could do both the more realistic swing, and have the city help out. If you look at Pete's earlier swinging in the movie, theres no way any intelligent person wouldve expected to see a Pro Webslinging sequence. Hell man, he even shows what a noob he is by MISSING the first crane he tried to swing from. The crane sequence was cool in my book. With the rookie status of Pete as Spider-Man, and the shape he was in, it was perfectly believable that he was not going to make it to Oscorp in time to stop Connors without those cranes.

It's just a scene with Conners and a guy you can't see at all. He asks Conners if he told Peter the truth about his father, and Conners says no and tells him to leave Peter alone. You can't tell anything at all about who it is, but it seems unlikely to me that it's Norman Osborne.

Thank God! From all the positive reviews of this film, this isnt harped enough. When Spidey 3 came out with emo spiderman, everyone complained. I was puzzled because Spiderman was fucking silly as hell. Like eye-rollingly cheezy. I hated them. I was hipster about it: "I hated spiderman before it was cool.

After hearing the script writer was fired from this movie before it was finished, I wrote it off. But the idea of a snarky, darker, no cheeze Spiderman has me interested. I may waste an afternoon matinee on this.

Raindrops was fantastic.

The "emo" (god I hate that fucking term, in general, but especially in application to Spider-Man 3) dancing only bothered me because it was so absurd. And so different from what I was expecting. Peter Parker infected by the Venom parasite should have played differently. It was a bold choice, and I can appreciate that. But I think a better choice could have been made.

I thought it was ok. I, too, had an issue with Parker being so cavalier with his identity. I also thought it was a bit too slow in the beginning with not enough funny to keep us occupied.

Best part of the film was the way Spiderman moved. Very fast, very agile- I thought they did a great job with that, but definitely wanted to see more.

Decent flick but don't think I liked it as much as the Spiderman.

EDIT: 3D for this film is a waste of money.

some scenes were rendered non 3-D, I took my shades off to check due to see how it looked through the glasses and without.

It's just a scene with Conners and a guy you can't see at all. He asks Conners if he told Peter the truth about his father, and Conners says no and tells him to leave Peter alone. You can't tell anything at all about who it is, but it seems unlikely to me that it's Norman Osborne.

Take what I said with a grain of salt. That's second-hand information.
I didn't actually see it. It initially occurred to me that I should stay, but ran out without giving it a second thought.

He name-dropped Osborne, but said that was an assumption, based on his read of the scene.

You actually believe those instances youre describing, compare in ANY way, to Raindrops keep fallin on my head, The Power Ranger reject, or the electric slide?

Gimme a break. The crane sequence doesnt even qualify if you were awake during the film.

The Crane sequence is about the people of New York coming to the aid of Spider-Man. Could he have made it to Oscorp without them? Sure. Probably not as fast, and Marc Webb is quoted as saying that when he thought about how he would shoot it, he wanted it to be more realistic and use the pendulum swing. This was a way he could do both the more realistic swing, and have the city help out. If you look at Pete's earlier swinging in the movie, theres no way any intelligent person wouldve expected to see a Pro Webslinging sequence. Hell man, he even shows what a noob he is by MISSING the first crane he tried to swing from. The crane sequence was cool in my book. With the rookie status of Pete as Spider-Man, and the shape he was in, it was perfectly believable that he was not going to make it to Oscorp in time to stop Connors without those cranes.




Never said it was as cheesy as the past movies could be. Just that it is not "cheese-free". It's not. I really liked the movie, but there are some faults.

They were evacuating the city and yet not one construction worker abandoned his post to flee? In perfect circumstances that sort of coordination would be a herculean feat, in these circumstances it strains the suspension of disbelief. Even then, it would have been a little easier to swallow if when he missed the first crane, it wasn't C. Thomas Howell who is the one who saved him. It was just. too. much. The "city rallying behind Spider-man" angle was done better in the first movie.

Didn't ruin the movie or anything. Did cause my eyes to roll a bit. Liking a movie isn't an all or nothing proposition.

I thought it was great. The crane scene could have been cut from the movie, but I guess they had to show the citizens being on Spidey's side somehow.

The end scene is definitely what people think it is.

He was originally listed on imdb as Osborn, they've since taken that down and now he's simply "Man In The Shadows".

That's a weird reveal, then. Guess it will be explained in the inevitable next entry.


Can someone give me a rundown of the current contract status with Spider-man and Sony? I know in the past there wasn't much chance of crossovers because Sony owned the rights, but I had heard at some point there was some kind of deal or expiration that was going to make it possible for Spidey to join the Avengers franchise or at least make a cameo here and there.

Can someone save me from researching this?

They have to make movies every so often or else they lose the rights. I don't know how long they have each time.

I don't see why not. Sony and Marvel make more money by cooperating. Seems simple enough, just depends on the dollar amount.

I guess it's a matter of how much MORE money Marvel will make by renting Spider-man for what would likely be a LOT of money for a small part. It would be awesome, though.

At others have mentioned, yes Sony has to keep making these Mediorce Spidy flicks or else they will lose the rights. Same deal with X-Men and FOX, although the last reboot of that was excellent.

The reason they ditched Raimi was over money. They couldnt come to terms and Spidey 3 cost a mint to make. So they started over with a cheap director, cast and lower budget. My guess is they went back to the origin story thing because it buys them time for a new trilogy or whatever.

Doubtfull will will ever see a crossover of some sort because i seriously doubt Sony, FOX, Marvel and Disney could get along and split up the profits.

Wasn't it reported around here that they actually had planned to put Oscorp Tower into the skyline in "Avengers", but didn't because the "Avengers" team had already computer-rendered the skyline by the time Sony and Disney agreed to it?

I'm pretty sure there have been Hollywood instances of two usually-competing studios teaming up to make a film. I know Touchstone and Amblin' went in on "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" together (and managed to get Mickey and his gang on screen with the Looney Tunes characters as well). Given the kind of payday an "Avengers"/"Spidey" team-up could bring, I can see the studios playing ball. Hell, if that idea is too big, they could probably just work Spidey into the storyline of one of the individual superhero movies (Iron Man, Hulk, a Black Widow/Hawkeye film, etc.,.).

Haven't seen the movie, but I'm aware of the scene. And Rhys Ifans disagrees:

Capone: Okay, what do you think about that ending?

RI: Well, Connors is basically locked up in a very high-security mental institution.

Capone: We were debating whether it was a prison or a mental institute.

RI: It's not a zoo. [laughs] I kept seeing it as maybe a mixture of both. Then a representative from OsCorp appears miraculously in the room. How he gets in there and how he leaves, we donít know. Maybe we will find out. But itís not Norman Osborn.

Capone: Itís not? You can say that?

RI: Yeah. But it is someone who is in the employ of Norman Osborn without question.

Capone: Someone we're familiar with, who we donít know is employed by Osborn?

RI: Yeah.

Capone: Okay, interesting.

RI: Who knows? Maybe he will be the next bad guy; weíll see.
