TDK had the ones mentioned below + Reese.

Probably one of the reasons why ASM's Peter wasn't written as well as Raimi's.
Classic Nolan fan,bash TASM just because I said something about TDKR

I have said many times before that the rooftop scene was terrible
In BB it made sense since he needed the help of a few people and hence he had to tell Alfred and Fox,Ra's trained him so he knew.Him letting it out to Rachel with that dialogue was stupid imo

In TDK know one else knew except Reese and they show it well how he intelligently deduced it
In TDKR it was ridiculous,they never explained how any of them came to know in the first place

Hey, you know what? Peter telling Gwen he is Spider-Man is basically Batman telling Rachel who he is in Batman Begins... on a rooftop, too!

Also, I would like to add, I'm not sticking up for John Blake's bones and stuff. That was just piss poor writing in a otherwise great movie.
Not that stupid "Hey lets send all the police force into the sewere'
That was lazy writing

It was Stacy's choice,he couldnt have said 'Lets go help spidey' when he just released an arrest warrant few days ago

I really hate bashing TDK trilogy, but fans of those movies can really go out of their way to bash other CBMs, and it gets very annoying. Nolan's films have many flaws, too.

That's actually really cool!

I don't see where you said anything about directly knowing a person in your original post....neitherless, all of those villains/heroes I name still had connections/ties/direct knowledge of each other, so you are still incorrect with your assumptions.

Actually, it takes the combination of Joker and Penguin to equal the Green Goblin, if you really think about it....so really the Joker is just half the character of the Green Goblin. You are wrong on that comparison.

As a fan of the trilogy, I can at least acknowledge these flaws. I have yet to read a fan's post of TAS-M that acknowledges TAS-M's flaws.

And you never really acknowledge them,you defend them to death

I've acknowledged ASM's flaws. They don't detract from how much I truly enjoy the film.

No...I actually don't.

As you can see, I have listed the flaws of Batman magically appearing at the end of TDK to confront Dent or that Bane's motorcycle along with his mens' motorcycles magically appearing at the Stock Exchange and et cetera.

I only defend something silly as pointing out how Bruce came back to Gotham simply because there wasn't any time showing it.

But once agin, though, I never hear from you or Spiderdevil on TAS-M's flaws. Show me where you bring up the flaws and I'll detract my statement.

What's your point with this statement towards Spiderdevil and Ultimateswebhead? There's no point in "detracting" your statement when you were obviously generalizing that you "have yet to read a fan's post of TAS-M that acknowledges TAS-M's flaws".

Think for a second.

If I do see that there are people that HAVE brought up the film's flaws rather than defending 24/7, then I will simply apologize in thinking I never heard of someone actually bringing up the flaws.

I'm not going to search thru all my posts to copy/paste them here but I have talked about the various flaws.

* They failed to really show the full humanity of Connors. I would've liked to see scenes with him and his family. That was my biggest gripe with ASM and took the biggest chunk out of my overall score.

* Editing/pacing issues with the second half. I can see how some last minute decisions about the changes within the story affected the final cut. I'm still ok with it though seeing as how the decided against the end for Ratha and wanting to take a diff approach to Peter's parents.

I've brought up these points several times along with some other minor nitpicks.

Anno, seriously, that might be the dumbest thing you've said. Countless fans have acknowledged flaws, you might not be reading those posts but they exist I'm sure of it.

I hope they try and do something orignal and different with Electro. I think it will bore me if he is the poor young man who is trying to do right by his family then accidently gets electrical powers and goes insane.

We have never seen anyone actually in the crime business. And maybe now is the time for that.
