Petition for Nicholas Hammond!

Discussion in 'Spider-Man 1, 2 & 3' started by Captain Sack, Apr 17, 2006.

  1. Hi Everybody!

    Okay, this is my first time on the boards, but I'm backing an important cause here. We all know that in comparison to the new Spider-Man films, the old TV series from the 70s was kind of weak. However, I think it's only fair that Nicholas Hammond, the original Spider-Man, be given an opportunity to relive his place in Spider-Man live acton history with a small role or even a quick cameo in the new film.

    I've started a small website (a lame one, but a start) with a link to a petition that you can sign if you believe that Nicholas Hammond deserves a role in the new film. I don't know how much filming is left for Spidey 3, but taking into account all of the post-production work needed for these films, filming may be wrapping up pretty soon. I know I'm probably cutting it close but I only get these genius ideas when things get tight.

    I'd appreciate any signatures and/or any reasons why other Spider-Man fans may or may not think this is a good idea. While the show definitely had it's flaws, aside from the Electric Company skits (really stupid), Nicholas Hammond was the first live action Spider-Man and deserves a nod of respect.

    Thanks for your help in this endeavor!

    While I have nothing at all against Hammond, and even look at the old series with a certain childish sentimentality, honestly he's less deserving of a cameo than Adam West is of a cameo in the Batman films.

    Anyway, the film is like 75% finished shooting. It's far too late at this point to start a petition for something like this. And Sony doesn't respond to petitions. Remember what happened with the webshooters on the first film.
     
  3. Thanks for your opinions, Dragon. I know you're probably right, and thanks for reminding me about the web shooter debacle of 2002.

    Anyway, I'll keep the petition up if any of you want to sign it. If nothing else, I'll save it for Spidey 4 - I'm way ahead of the game on that one. Also, I should add that since Geocities sucks (they took down my website - seems I violated some sacred Geocities law), and I'm not going to pay for a website just for this, if you do want to sign the petition, just go directly there via this link:

    Thanks everybody!

    I don't want to see Hammond. There should be absolutely no ties between the movies & that horrendous TV show.

    But it was bad even by 70's standards, which is why it didn't last.

    Can we start one for SM 4? The show was pretty bad but still holds a place in my heart.

    He actually isn't in any of the movies, it just would be nice for him to have a small cameo, depending on who you ask.

    Actually, it didn't last because advertisers were misunderstanding it's demographic. It was always a successful show in terms of viewing figures.
