    After seeing man of steel, I went right home and saw Amazing Spidey again. And I got a new appreciated feel for ASM's storytelling. Cause MOS's was really badly executed. And I still really like MOS, don't get me wrong. But if there was one movie that took a lot of "beating" from critics which for the most part really wasn't fair, it was ASM. It's a really solid layed groundwork for the new franchise, and its storytelling was very well executed.

    I think ASM2 has so much potential of really making it BIG TIME! (but I've been wrong so many times before with statements like that regarding other franchises sequels). The origin is out of the way now. The style has been layed down. The first film's weakest part was the lizard creature it self. Really boring. It didn't fit in with the rest of the universe. Which reminds me. When looking at the villain from Spidey 1 to 2 in the original series, I think the same thing is evident here with the new franchise. The villains chosen for ASM2 both looks and seems to work way better, cinematically, than that of the Lizard in the first film.

    I pray for a high rating on rotten for this one!

    I think they tried too hard with the storytelling in Man Of Steel, but it was needed. The Amazing Spider-Man kept it simple and now they have the opportunity to make the next three movies something special. Like some people are saying, where does MOS go from here?

    MoS had a very problematic screenplay (aside from trying to rip BB's off) and this time there was no Nolan to correct/finetune it. That's what its problem was. And Costner and Shannon didn't give a flying f**k. Other than that, movie was fine.

    The teaser for TASM needs to be under a minute. I don't want a 2:30 like last time. The shorter the better for a teaser, IMO.

    I think Electro and Rhino are good choices for villains in TASM2. Lizard was fine for the first movie, but as you said, boring. His character was not fleshed out enough, HOWEVER... it did tie-in to the overall theme of the movie of cross-species genetics, Spider-Man's origin, and Peter's parents.

    I am wondering about how Electro and Rhino will tie into everything (especially Electro). We know he is an Oscorp employee, but is that it?

    I remember someone on these boards thought that Norman Osborn was going to be Peter's dad. LOL

    That was before Chris Cooper was cast as Norman Osborn though.

    He still believed at this point Clark wasn't ready/mature enough to handle the burden that would come once he was outed. Jon knew how people would react and he was right. He knew Clark had to find out more about himself and when he did and when the time was right, Clark would know and then he can take those steps to fulfilling what it is he was meant to do(this happened when he found the scout ship). Then he would be able to handle that initial burden of how people would react.

    The point Jonathan's death scene made was brilliant, actually (save for the damn dog). Too bad they never actually took it anywhere. Clark never made a choice. As soon as he wore the suit there was no dilemma.

    1. He makes the worst advice EVER. If he didn't save the kids, people would find it strange that Clark was the only one who survived.

    2. His death might as well be ranked as one of movie's worst. Clark didn't need superpowers to get Jon. His stop hand signal lasted for a few minutes and the tornado got him. At this point, a lot of people knew Clark's powers. Oh darn, he's gonna save this one guy; just like how he saved the kids earlier!

    Nobody knew Clark had powers. Pete's mom clearly said it was "a miracle".

    Thefirst ASM2 teaser needs to something along the lines of the WTC trailer for Spider-man (2002).

    I wasn't a fan of the movie but that was easily the best comic book movie teaser of all time.

    Too bad the trailer never got the full exposure it deserved due to 9/11.

    I own the banner of the first image of Spider-Man. The one where you only see his face and hand on the side of the building. The twin towers are in his eyes so all posters/banners got recalled back in late 01'.

    Mine's 8 x 4 ft and it's vinyl. Takes up an entire wall and I love every inch of it!
