ASM was a kick in the teeth as it was, but watching the film I felt especially saddened because the Gwen/Captain Stacy/Lizard material would have all been perfect in a following Raimi movie.
This is what I've ALWAYS said. The material Webb took and hacked away at, could've been better handled by a crew who, I dunno, was actually GOOD. My God, TASM sucks on so many levels. I mean, at least that's how I view it, that Raimi could've done much better. I know what had in mind, when I constructed a story for a SM4, and it was ten times better than what they did in Webb's amateur hour. Although Stacy wasn't killed by the Lizard in my story, he was killed by Cletus Cassidy (NOT as Carnage though). I remember being really proud of myself when I decided that Connors had lost his arm in Desert Storm and had spent a long time trying to fix it, became obsessed with it, almost to the point of neglecting his wife, but when his wife became pregnant she told him that she wouldn't raise her child in a household where his father was neglecting him, so Connors stopped, but when he gets the piece of the symbiote (from Peter in SM3), and discovered it's ability to enhance the traits of it's host, he'd start to become obsessed again, there'd be some science (!) mumbo jumbo about him being able to extract the essence of the symbiote and enhance Lizard DNA with it, and he'd be about to test it when his wife, seeing the signs of obsession again, would start to take their son and leave, and Connors, desperate and frenzied would, instead of testing it, just immediately use it on himself to prove to his wife that it wasn't like before and that the solution was real, and BAM, Lizard. Meanwhile, there'd be this whole storyline about escaped serial killer Cletus Cassidy, where Stacy and Spider-Man would find him and Cassidy would kill him, and for some reason or another Spider-Man couldn't save him, and then Gwen would hate Spider-Man (ACTUALLY LIKE IN THE COMICS, AS IT SHOULD BE!!! Sorry. Still pissed TASM didn't do this.). I really enjoyed the idea. Maybe it's just me though. Whew! Sorry I just vomited my **** onto you like that! I've just had that bottled up for awhile.
