So, will they avoid JJJ for the entire trilogy? I understand being intimidated by the previous trilogy's perfect portrayal of him, but that shouldn't discourage them from moving forward with a different take on the character. Raimi's JJJ was the perfectly portrayed classic, over the top caricature version, perhaps Webb can take him in his more dimensional, nuanced modern interpretation.

They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
