Agreed with all three above posts.  However, since it's a fictional subject, you can make up whatever you want.... I just find some made up things to be more able to suspend my disbelief than others... and some just feel right.  Shooting webs from your wrists just feels right.... roll eyes

There's no way that deserves to be at the bottom of the page. Dammit, when will they make a Venture Bros theatrical release?

If they re-do Spiderman, they better make sure that Parker builds gadgets to shoot webs this time, instead of shooting semen from his wrists.

I disagree.  I think that was the most logical change when they movie'd up that franchise, and it's one of the few things I actually thought was rather decent.

Agreed with winna. This modification was adapted from the Spiderman 2099, the only comic in marvel's whole 2099 universe that was actually pretty solid (at least, it was, until it got tied in with all the rest in the culminating 2099 crossover event). It was actually better, I thought, than the three other spidey comics they had going at the time.

re: the reboot, it seems incredibly stupid to me. You're adapting comic books. Do what the comics do. When they give the comics an overhaul every couple of decades, they don't feel the need to throw out everything that's happened before and start over, they just tweak around the edges and brush over any inconsistencies.  I don't see why the movies can't just do the same.

Of course, these are the people who cast Topher Grace as venom and non-ironically gave dark spidey emo bangs through half of 3, so clearly they're all idiots.

I disagree only with the "only", cause I enjoyed Doom 2099 as well, but only up to the point where they dropped the ball on the whole thing. It was a fun approx 2 years, if you ignored the other titles (especially Ravage, WTF?)

As far as web fluid/shooters go, that means you have to make Peter a total inventive genius who can't see the potential of his formula to make money, or if he wants to keep it for himself (Spider-Man), can't see the benefits of modifying it for monetary gain. And he's always short of cash. I'm prepared to buy it in the comics, but I doubt movie audiences are so forgiving.

And as far as "dark spidey" goes, that was the biggest cop out of the franchise. Sorry, but Spidey wasn't a bad guy when he wore the alien costume, just constantly tired cause it took him out for web-slinging jaunts in his sleep. The alien doesn't make people inherently bad, it just hates Spidey for spurning it. That was what annoyed me most about Spider-Man 3.

I disagree.  Although the original incarnation of the alien suit didn't make Spiderman evil per se, it has been established throughout the comics that it altered him in an alien way, so as to be perceived as having moral quandries more quickly.  In fact, with the original story, they did a what if comic where all the superheroes ended up staying on the planet and spidey kept the costume.... eventually he became paranoid of all the others and crept about while the suit consumed him.

The problem with that movie is that Venom is one of the best villain characters in comic books and that they did a shite job of portraying that in any aspect for that movie, which should have been the major focus, upto and including deciding to cast Topher Grace as Eddie Brock.  Add to that the fact there was too much going on in that movie and the decision to make Peter Parker an emo fagbag, complete with shite dance number, and you can easily see why the movie pretty much blew chunks.  If they do an Apocalypse storyline in the current X-Men movie franchise, I hope they have enough respect to do it justice. roll eyes

Also, awesome to see Gopher around! big grin

Just to add to that Winna because you're 100% spot on with why Spider-Man 3 makes me so incredibly angry, I would like to say I absolutely hated Sandman. The whole dying daughter backstory was so beyond bullshit, and I know that they were trying to strike lightning again because it worked with Doc Ock but I could not believe it for a second. Mainly because Sandman is not a pussy-ass in the comics. I mean really his daughter is dying so it's ok for him to be a criminal, it's ok for him to run away from his responsibilities and not at least try to be there when she may die any day. And really are you fucking serious he is the one who killed Uncle Ben? No. No no no no no no no no no. Fuck you Sandman, fuck you fuck you!

You're all wrong. Spider-Man 3 was a shit movie because Peter didn't go to Mr. Fantastic at the end and become the Amazing Bagman, paving the way for the Amazing Bagman movie.
What a wasted opportunity.

Indeed. Enough about that cinematic abortion. I was responding to last page when I brought it back up; disculpe.

Also, a modern futuristic take on Robin Hood starring Will Smith? I'm more surprised that Warner's dropped $5m for the script rights...

My first  thought reading that bit was "$5 million is the most they've ever paid for a script?" Given how huge movie budgets can get I'm rather surprised. That means some sitcom stars have been paid more per week, 26 episodes a year,  than any writer has ever been paid for a script by a studio. Granted, there's always royalty deals, which probably push writers of many major hits over the $5mil mark,  but the sitcom stars get royalties too.

When Shane Black got over $1 million for the script of "The Last Boy Scout", that was supposedly the first time a scriptwriter had been paid into 7 figures for a script (he held the record for the highest script price ($4 Million) until this one).  They're typically comparitively underpaid & treated like crap; many times, the script that the studio morons greenlight is barely recognizable when it's shot, due to requirements of the studio, the director and many times the actors (who demand that their character is more fully featured; Sylvester Stallone is notorious for this).  Dropping $5 Million for a futuristic robin hood script is laughable, given that it's based on a previous idea; it was probably Will Smith talking the studio into it.

coming this year:

X-Men : First Class - according to the director,he wants to do to the xmen series what the latest Star Trek movie did for Star Trek. Also, starring Kevin Bacon.

Captain America : The First Avenger - the most patriotic character in comic book history, in an era when most people aren't really feeling that patriotic. Also, the guy playing his sidekick has been signed for a "5 or 6 movie deal."

Thor: ... 'nuff said.

I might have to skip the movie theater this year.

Capitalism, the quintessential American value!

edit: Alternative reply, including a pun: Smartphones are wireless, the connection is invisible.

edit2: The only real I dislike I have about Spider-Man 3 is the presence of Gwen Stacey. Her inclusion was pointless and little more than throwing in a name people would recognize. I also spent several nerve-wracking minutes expecting her to fall from that skyscraper and then have Spidey try to save her...

edit3: Oh, and Peter and MJ really need to talk more about their relationship. Seriously, every single problem they've ever had in the films could have been easily resolved by coming clean with each other in the beginning. Or at least as soon a complication arose.

edit4: Fixed spelling.
