    Hahaha. I'm going to say it once, and then I'm going to say it again to make it seem like a big deal which the Commissioner will say his department needs more of them good ol' hotheads.

    I figured they weren't calling it Amazing Spider-Man 2. Spectacular is what I wanted. And the third should be Web of Spider-Man.

    You ruined the hotheaded conversation by bringing up a debunked rumor.

    You hothead.

    Interesting. I loved Morbius' story in TAS. Not sure how it went in the comics.

    I have a couple problems with this. First off, what makes him Spectacular in the sequel and not in the original? What makes him Ultimate in the third? Defeating Green Goblin? Not saving Gwen?

    Also, it limits the series. Who says film three is the last one anyway? I'm one of those who wants this series to stretch on. To maybe 6+ films. What happens when they run out of adjectives? Even if it doesn't go past 3 films, what will the reboot be called? Save the new adjectives for the reboots.

    Finally, (and this one is my own selfish reason) if you call it Amazing Spider-Man 2, I feel it takes away from Raimi's trilogy in a sense. lol. Cuz its no longer a 4th spiderman film, but a new series. And I'm all for that. :oldrazz:

    Dude, its just a title. He wasn't Spectacular in the first film because he was Amazing? Don't over analyze it. Even if the third is "Ultimate Spider-Man," doesn't mean it has to be the last.

    I don't think this franchise could go past 3 or 4 films without being stretched out to be honest. After this trilogy, Marvel should have the rights back. At least that's how I feel.

    Oh it's gonna continue like the Bond series. Mark my words. We wont see an origin story for decades and decades. And the only way this series will NOT go past 6 movies or so, is if Marvel gets the rights back...but even then i cant see them rebooting.

    New directors after the 3rd. Perhaps another 20 something year old actor taking over for Garfield after the 4th movie. But there's no reason to reboot for a very long time. It should continue. Dont spread it out too much. Keep Webbs trilogy in the "High School-Teenage Parker Years". Another trilogy with strictly Mary Jane and his intro to Daily Bugle into his 20s. Then a final trilogy within the first half of his 20s.

    That's 3 trilogies that are all in continuity. If they're smart enough, they can spread these out every 2 or 3 years. Which means the franchise can go on for 20 years. By that time we can get a reboot.

    It leaves enough time to squeeze a great amount of villains that have never seen the light of day on film. As well as improving on the rogues that Raimi handled. Cuz let's face it, once Green Goblin is over-with in Webbs last movie......i doubt the audience (especially general movie-goers) and future filmmakers will want to tackle that character for a very long time. And this is the case for Lizard and the rest of em'.

    As long as Sony has the rights, there will be a movie every 5 years. You know, even though SM3 was bad, and its debatable whether or not TASM was great or not, just knowing the franchise will go on makes me confident we will have many more great Spider-Man movies. Bond has 23 films, most of which are meh, and a few fantastic films (Goldfinger, GoldenEye, Casino Royale, Skyfall). We have Spider-Man & Spider-Man 2 as great films IMO, with TASM at least being "good," (also my opinion), so I'm sure we are going to see some great films in Spider-Man's future.

    Its all about the title mang. Although I do love subtitles. Call them
    Amazing Spider-Man: Enter Electro,
    Amazing Spider-Man: Revenge of the Green Goblin,
    Amazing Spider-Man: The Last Hunt,
    or
    Amazing Spider-Man: Sinister Six
    all you want. But the various adjectives make no sense to me. And its only going to instill the reboot attitude, the "rebootitude" if you will, even further into peoples heads. "Oh it's Spectacular Spider-Man now? Wheres the sequel to that awesome one from 2012?"

    I hope youre right. If any comic book hero needs an episodic series (as opposed to a trilogy) its Spidey. Bats could use one too so its too bad Nolan RETIRED him after a quarter of his rogues gallery. But Spidey needs a long story. Through High School, through college, through marriage, through Oscorp and Kingpin and Black Cat and Madame Webb and symbiotes and the Sinister Six.

    He needs crossovers with Iron Man and Daredevil and the X-Men and the Hulk. He needs Nick Fury to tell him he's inexperienced and Wolverine to call him "Bub." Or maybe I'm getting greedy. Either way, he deserves more films than Bond.

    Whether the movie is called Amazing Spider-Man 2, or Spectacular Spider-Man, people will know its a sequel to the 2012 film as long as it has Andrew Garfield playing Peter Parker. Not too worried about that to be honest. Maybe after this trilogy, they could have subtitles, like "Spider-Man: The Venom Saga" or "Spider-Man: The Sinister Six."

    Spider-Man definitely needs a long running series. Whenever the actor gets too old, pull a James Bond move and recast him, that's all. I want to see Spider-Man get out of high school, go to college, graduate, even become a teacher. I want to see him and MJ getting married for crying out loud.

    Him teaming up with Iron Man and X-Men aren't NECESSARY, since he could carry stories on his own. It would just be incredible to have him in the same universe as them.

    If Batman had many goals or if more freaks rose, then I'd agree with Nolan's trilogy ending with Bruce retiring, but I don't :cwink:

    Yes.

    Honestly, I'd be VERY surprised if they give him an actual "costume". I think it's more likely that he'll be a "plain" clothes villian. What he'll wear would look interesting (he is supposed to be a genius scientist at Oscorp), I'm sure, but I highly doubt he'll have an actual costume.

    Agreed. I'm sure that they'll hold of on the adjectives for more reboots down the line. It makes sense, considering the different adjectives are used for different runs/universes in the comics.

    I was watching TASM with the commentary, and I found what Marc Webb said about the post-credits scene to be very interesting. He said, "Notice the lightning." Is it possible that Electro already exists, and he would have gained his powers prior to the events of TASM2?
