    If Felton plays Pietro, you might as well cast Emma Watson as Wanda. They could even make the creepy incest vibe work.

    If they go with that disgusting Ultimates incest angle, I will not watch the movie. Marvel should keep that sick **** in the comics.

    It's interesting that Wanda and Pietro hooked up with Vision and Crystal, respectively, at around the same time.

    Only what occurs in the actual comic books matters because that is all that is considered canon. Nothing in fan fiction is ever going to influence the fate of the characters in the comic book or movie universes, so it isn't important no matter how shocking it may seem. And frankly, there isn't much in fan fiction that is more stomach-turning than some of the stuff in the actual comics. Siblings slinking off into the bushes to have sex with each other is far more objectionable than anything fans have come up with.

    This might have been already suggested, but I say Michael J Fox for Spider-man 20+ years in the past for a 1980's film.

    I found most of Ultimatum to be "stomach turning". I actually havent read any of the Ultimate stuff since I saw that panel of the Blob munching on Janet's body. Disgraceful. IMO.

    I heard somewhere recently that Charlie Sheen actually campaigned to play Spider-man back in the 80's (obviously never ever came of it) but, a rather funny image to think about

    Tom Cruise was considered to play Peter Parker right before the James Cameron directed Spidey film was being considered.

    I've been writing fanfics since I was 11 and admit that it really helped grow my interest in literature over the years, I'm majoring in lit and I can still connect it to my love of comics and eventual fanfics so I do regard the "genre" (if we can call it that) in some esteem.

    However it's still not as big as it's regarded. I mean yeah they're fun and really if our imagination is pure speculation then you don't get more pure a speculation about these characters than in fanfics... and it isn't that just because a licensing studio owns the copyrights that their interpretations are more legitimate than the ones that fans make, y'know what they say: the text stops belonging to the author the moment it's written down, it belongs to the reader and relies just as much on a reader's interpretation for it to be unique as the author's own originality. I believe these are what the critics call "writerly texts," and comic-based characters are exactly that. BUT the reason why I agree that fanfics aren't exactly as big as they're put out as is because they are, by definition, fan-based fiction. They aren't independent. They are the "expanded" universe, the supplemental plugs to the original material, and as such will always remain second-tier no matter how original the idea is. In short, fan-films and fan-fiction, by being fan-based, never goes beyond an interpretation to be something original and a re-interpretation because their sole existence relies on existing popularity.

    This isn't a blow to what we're doing as fans, fan-based material is still something that I feel is important, but it's simply a reflection of the popularity of the characters no matter how artistic the take is, instead of an advancement of the popularity.

    I was making this point to a friend today and felt that since this thread is all about fan-based speculation, it'd be appropriate to find some feedback on it. What do you think?

    Saw some pics of Grillo over in the Crossbones thread and-can't remember who posted it- but they thought he'd look like a great white fury. I agreed with him.
