But they are... "Batman Begins" featuring Christian Bale (brilliant choice- this guy is pure splendorama) as Bruce Wayne. It's more about how Brucie became Batman than it is about Batman kicking the crap out of everything. This ass-kicking is something that was waaay overdone in all the movies and made me hate every single one of them. They had a good visual style though- especially Burton's.

I'll go with Mr. Spidey because it captures much of what I got from reading the comics. So they changed his web- so what? The only things I disliked were: the bridge scene- if you copy a situation directly from the comics, you should do it fully... with the right characters and death and all. And why did the Goblin die so soon? A superhero's nemesis is more persistent than that.

It's just a bit easier in this franchise to have a villian last through one movie. Think how boring it would be if they kept making Spidey movies and Goblin was the big baddie in EVERY SINGLE ONE! Still though, I would have picked Otto over Norman any day as a character who would linger, so to speak..

You said it would be boring if the Green Goblin was the villain in every one, but I think even the same villain in two out of three would be boring. I mean you want some variety in them! Unfortunately, by the end of Spider-Man 2, it looks as if the Goblin will be the villain again. I guess it is better if its a different person, though.

It may not be the Green Goblin, what if it is the Hobgoblin?  Or maybe Scorpion?  My friend loved Spidey 2 and used to love reading the comics.  He said these names as possible villains for Spidey 3 right after we exited the movie theater.  He doubts it will be Venom, because the movie would have to be R rated in order to do it justice, but Spider-man is PG-13 material.

Man I think my favorite villians are Carnage & Venom! They are the badest of the bad but I love them! Although The Hobgoblin actually just rips of The Green Goblin, and I not saying this just cause his red eyes freak me out. But he found the GG's lair and took his glider and stuff and became the Hobgoblin. I have a lot of knowledge of the comics and I love them. But that's just me

Do you mean the comic book versions or their on-screen counterparts?

In the comics the Green Goblin was far more compelling than Doc Ock, who was pretty much your stereotypical scientist-gone-mad. The accident and tentacles just made him have delusions of granduer, instead of overpowering his will. Norman, on the other hand, chose to don the green mask solely for the purpose of bringing down Spider-Man -- an interesting twist.

As far as this poll goes, I had to vote Spiderman.
I loved the X movies, and I really didn't mind the Daredevil movie.
(I am a long time Dardevil fan)
When I comes to Marvel, I hadn't read much in many many years, but with Joe Quesada bringing in Vertigo talent, and creating the Marvel Knights and Max line, it's been a whole new ballgame.
And with Avi Arad at the helm of the movie end of the biz for Marvel, they're giving WB and DC a run for their money and got them scrambling to get out the goods.
Catwoman already looks a disaster,
What's with that mile high head piece?
Constantine was horribly miscast.
Maybe there's some hope in Batman Begins.
Anybody see Batman: Dead End?
By far and away the best (albeit short) Batfilm
and costume ever done.

Doesn't Venom because sort of a good-guy at one point in the Spiderman comics? I looked at this little Spiderman Compendium Comic and it mentioned that Venom joined forces with Spiderman to do good. True or False?

I think there's a bunch of bullshit storylines for venom that eventually got drawn out... he eventually got his own comic series as an "anti"-hero.... whatever the fuck that is.

He did go good for awhile, but he killed the Sandman when he joined the Sinester Six. He bit him and it had a very slow and painful effect on him that spreaded through-out his body! And he had Spidey tell his mother goodbye. Poor guy.
But Carnage is so cool he has the best powers!
But I read a short artical in this exclusive magazine all bout SM2 think it was by Wizard or something but anyways. It was about the ultimate bad guy vs. bad guy battle. Everyone of SPidey's foes fought each other and you know I love GG but you'd think either Carnage or Vemon would win instead of him. That's what happened, GG won the other better and more powerful villians lost. It was stupid but I'll admit GG is Spidey's most common foe.
I know a lot about Spider-Man he is so cool! And no one could have done him better than Tobey Maguire *drools*. Wait was that out loud?  love
LOL kidding.
And in the comics Harry dies from a slow poisoning during he's and SPidey's "final" battle. And his son Norrmie (named after the original GG) avenged him against Spider-Girl. But now they're friends. Kinda stupid. ANd also in that Wizard maggie, they have a new Spider-Girl comic coming out soon that has really no realation to Spidey or his daughter (Spider-Girl #1). And her costume (no offense Marvel) looks really cheap and just looks like punk clothes I guess.
Also fun fact about Mary Jane's ex-fiance: In the comics while on the moon he found this pretty jewel thing and wore it as a necklace I think, anyway when the moon is full he turns in Man-Wolf! I'm not or werewoles cause I live with them but it's funny cause he attacked one of his dates while under the curse of the jewel. I just look back and laugh at it.  laff
But man Spidey has some of the stupidest villians, like Shocker or Cousion as most people call him. if you saw his costume you'd know why. But enough about Spidey I've got stuff to do...

Shocker is decent (though I have no idea what that second word you typed is, unless you meant "Cousin", which makes no sense).

Now, the Vulture is lame. As are Kraven, the Chameleon, and a lot of the other villains he faced off against in the early years of the series.

Spider-man 3 is set to come out on May 4, 2007.  The reason for the extra year is because X3 is set to come out in 2006 to prevent competition at the box office.  I like X-men, because the movie saved superhero movies.  I mean before that Batman was current at the box office and the last two movies sucked.  X-men became a huge hit and thus paved the way for Spider-man the movie to move forward.  I like Spider-man over the X-men movie, because Spider-man is my favorite Marvel superhero.

For X-men 3, I hear that Halle Berry won't be back as storm.  Hugh Jackman has yet to sign on officially as Wolverine.

Who was be the villain of X-men 3?

Magneto of course, but who else?  Mr. Sinister?   Apocalypse?  The Sentinels?

Sorry, I meant cushin. Or mattress. But I actually think The Cameleon is pretty good for a villian. I mean how can you catch "The Man of A Thousand Faces"? I'll admit for Vulture and the others (like Turantula). But for you guys who haven't read the comics Kraven actually kinda killed Spider-Man. He shot him between the eyes and it knocked him cold but he came back from the dead. And the only reason why he went nuts with killing Spidey was cause he knew his days were numbered. (If you catch my drift). But I love Spider-Man as much as I do Tobey Maguire.   love   big grin . And it's kinda obvious that I know a lot about him! G'uh!

I always thought that he just considers himself to be good. He is always obsessed with everyone being innocent and that they did nothing wrong. In fact in one issue (have all the Venom issues   big grin ) he actually saves a baby. Issue 332 I beileve. I also don't see them making it "R", cause it would only be for violence. Okay EXTREME Violence, but I think it would be due to the extremely long storyline. I think they could just edit it to the Ultimate Venom storyline and make it shorter, but it wouldn't be as good.

P.S. VENOM + CARNAGE = THE COOLEST PAIR OF VILLAINS EVER!

Can you imagine what would happen if Venom's symbiote & Carnage's Symbiote formed together and created the ULTIMATE super villian for Spidey?

And plus, I have read that comic Tom123 where Venom saves that baby. It's just weird having a big, scarey, anti-Spider-Man villian save your child. But I love Venom as much as I do Carnage!  love

Brian Synger, director of both X-men and X2 won't be directing X3.  He has signed to direct another comic book hero movie, Superman.  It is set to come out in 2006, the same that X3 was supposely going to come out.

How can they continue without Halle Berry or Hugh Jackman?! Wolverine played an important role in X-2! They have to keep the same cast, at least for X-3! I mean wait till after the trilogy to change the cast or directors! (if there will be more) :: starts cursing only to realize people are watching ::

I'd be surprised if Hugh Jackman decides not to reprise his role as Wolverine in the third film.  Even if Mr. Jackman does decide to sit this one out, that doesn't mean that the movie can't be made without him.  Despite what the Wolverine fans might tell you, Logan was never the star of the comic books.  It would certainly be possible to make an X-Men movie without Wolvie.  They'd just have to focus on the other characters instead.

Oh, and no one will miss Halle Berry if she isn't there.   no no

I'm almost sure that Hugh Jackman is going to reprise his role as Wolverine if the movie ever gets made. They lost Storm and now they don't have the writers and the director until 2006. This is oging to take a long time.

Spawn kicked ass...there is an R-rated directors cut of it, which I have yet to see, but have been told that's it almost a completely different movie as opposed to the pg-13 version.

I've never seen any of the XMen movies, only the end of the first one. But from what I've seen and read the movie does kinda revolve around Wolverine. I mean he was the one who rode of into the mid-afternoon at the end of the first one and he hogged the commercials for X2. I mean I agree with David A., no one is gonna give rats ass that Halle Berry doesn't come back for X3. I mean I think big Wolverine fans are gonna be a little p***ed if Hugh Jackman doesn't sign for Wolve this time. I know I would be so mad if Tobey Maguire wasn't gonna do Spidey for SM3 but he is, it's offical. YAY!  big grin Screw X-Men, Spider-Man is for me. *points at self*.

I agree that the movies revolve around Logan (the first one anyway, I haven't seen the second one yet), and it would be a shame if Mr. Jackman wasn't in the third movie.  What I was saying is that the X-Men comic books don't revolve around the ol' canucklehead, and that it would be possible to make an X-Men movie without him, if they wanted to (not that they should).

I agree, but I think if Jackman doesn't come back for the 3rd one than it is going to be a huge let down. It will do very bad cause Jackman was the star. It might be ok but it will suck ass if not.

And it doesn't matter for Halle Berry either cause she is doing Catwomen. So she's free to leave the X-Men team if she wants to.
