    Thing is that, even when the scene where Norman finds out Spider-man's identity is good, it makes you wonder, well, if this guy knows that Spider-man's identity is important, how come he didn't unmask him while he had him gassed for hours? He just waited for him to wake up and then gave him some cheap speech and went away. Any villiain with half a brain would have unmasked the hero right away and started to blackmail him immediately.

    Well, what else is there to explain frankly? What substance did he use to make the spider-web?

    But it's true, in neither movie did they explain why Peter chose this design, why blue and red. Well, except that here he got the idea for the mask from the wrestling poster.

    I've already expressed my opinion on Garfield's Parker in the "which is best" thread. I'm not sure if I should post it here as well. I dislike Garfield's Peter Parker for various reasons.

    I do find it amusing that a variation of "I have to stop it" appears to have been used in every film, dating back to the first Spider-Man.
    He should forget about leaving notes saying "courtesy of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man," and instead just leave notes saying "I had to stop it."

    I did not say Raimi's film are flawless. I was just talking about that particular scene which was done better and had tension comparing it to the ASM. My point is that ASM didn't dwelve on the small things and progressing from them. It feels to me they just threw scenes together to move on the next one.
    As for the shooters and the suit creation, yeah i would like to have seen the substance he used and the whole process. Why rush things with dragged and boring scenes with Peter saying to Gwen "err.. um... etc". Take time to show us cool things that we have not seen before like the creation of his gadgets. Honestly i would take those scenes over the fightings with the Lizard even.

    In answer to 1. they did, but it was a different version of the same phrase basically, ripped straight from the USM comics.

    " your father believed that if you could help people then it was your moral obligation to do so, not choice, responsibilty."

    which is just a longer less on the nose version of with great power comes great responsibility.

    with 2. That's actually one of my favourite bit of the film. Yeah I get what your saying but there was a strong moral message within that scene that imo beats any hollywood cliche. 3 and 4 are good points, but they can't really waste screentime on that, one just has to assume that they are saved via the police/fire fighters etc. Also, not ALL the cars had people in them, as as we saw most people were running away from whatever was coming towards the bridge so....yeah. my two cents lol.

    For whatever reason, Ben's quote in the new film didn't get the point across as bluntly as it should have. Maybe I'm just picky about phrasing. The way it was originally worded makes it seem like the word 'responsibility' was tacked on at the end of the sentence.

    I might have liked that a bit more.

    Actually, in the Raimi movie they did show the inspiration for the red and blue. The spider that bit Peter was that colour. I think the production team even painted the spider that colour specifically. There's certainly a little bit about it in that book "Behind the Mask of Spider-Man: The Secrets of the Movie" by Mark Vaz.

    I don't remember the film, but I'm guessing he did, since that was what was intended as the inspiration according to Behind the Mask of Spider-Man. I have to read that bit in the book again sometime.

    So, that was Norman Osborn at the end of the credits right? Because I've seen other people (my own brother included) saying that it could have been....*gag* Mysterio.

    I think Rhys Ifans himself said it was not Norman.

    Its a mystery as to who it is. I assumed it COULD be Norman. But I was thinking maybe Chameleon or Mysterio as they way he seemed to just disappear form the room.

    It's probably Norman..

    the man in the shadows is played by Michael Masse, and the hologram in the start of the movie that shows Norman looks like Michael Masse.

    There is the URL but I am not quite sure how to hyperlink on my iPod. The part where he talks about the end credits is near the end of the interview.

    I always assumed it would be Norman. As for the whole disappearing act...all for dramatic affect. How he got in there is easily explained though.

    Super rich and powerful CEO, end of story.

    I have a few problems with it being Norman.

    1. He's supposed to be "near death" in this film.
    2. Has Norman Osborne EVER worn a Bowler hat?
    3. Norman is unlikely to run his own errands. People come to him or he has them brought to him, he's not going to go to them to deliver threats.
