Default What if Michael Jackson had played Spider-Man?

Just came across this article from Screen Rant mentioning that Michael Jackson once tried to buy Marvel so he could play Spider-Man in the movies.

Here's the article: http://screenrant.com/spider-man-trivia-facts-you-didnt-know

I guess it happened during the 90s well before Sony got their hands on the film rights and during that time when Marvel filed for bankruptcy.

This really could have happened. But what would it have looked like?

It would have been awful.

Ever seen that movie he has at EPCOT at Disney?

*shudders*

I would have rather seen James Cameron's Spider-Man.

Creepy doesn't even begin to cover the James Cameron script. I found a version of the treatment online complete with storyboards.

Anyone who goes there, you've been warned.

Well I didn't read this thoroughly but there is some good stuff in there. If this movie actually was made, we would've had a Spider-Man film with a fight scene at the twin towers. Weird.

I love how they show Peter trying to pop a zit at the beginning of the treatment.

I'm convinced Cameron's version hitting the big screen would spell doom for Spider-Man.

Do you mean if the movie hit today or back in the 90's? I definitely think Raimi's film in 2002 is the best thing that happened to Spider-Man and comic book movies in general.

90's. It would've been huge but it would've been for all the wrong reasons.

Maybe he would've been both Peter and MJ.

Looks like a Halloween costume. Especially the mask. And I don't mean the one in his hand.

There'd have been a Spider-Man famous for always clutching his crotch.

That sure is one hell of a storyboard.

This one is the equivalent of a Spider-Man face palm, which perfectly suits the subject of this thread.

I must've read a different James Cameron scrip than all you guys. There was another one with Doctor Octopus as the villain, and he was supposed to be played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Strangely, that casting doesn't sound too awful to me.

Michael Jackson as Spidey, though.... just no.
