We know that GG, Sandman and Venom are in the movies. Yay. We know who will be playing them respectively. But we don't know that much about the film. So when people are saying that the film will probablly suck, we don't know that. I've been trying to express my opinions with that basic idea. I don't know hardly anything about the film, and I have no real opinion on it until it comes out. I've expressed opinions about details, but I have not said anything that you would not be lead to with common sense. - I think that we do deserve better than a palette swipe. Like a different template. In terms of Red/Blue vs. Black costume. -I think that Gwen should have a good reason for being in the story, even if it has nothing to do with the comics. Because the fact is that we can't go back in time and simply make Gwen his first love like in said comics. We're already past that now. So Raimi should come up with a valid and creative reason for having her. I'm not saying that he has not or will not, I'm just saying that he needs to. It would seem that we're past the problem of people thinking that the SM2 manip is a real picture from SM3. But people aren't thinking clearly. Even if it was real, wouldn't we have already known. At this point we're all working on hypothesis(from the small bits of information we have and are getting) and desires on what -should- be in SM3. Not what -WILL- be in SM3. Because we don't know. That was always my opinion on the matter. I have not contradicted it, nor do I plan to. So people need to stop acting as if they know things other people don't. Not everyone has an uncle or cousin or friend who works for Sony or Marvel. And they need to stop assuming that people like me have been contradicting ourselves. All of the people with common sense, have been saying the same things they've always said and have not denied when they were wrong(I can name a few, myself included). The funniest thing is that in every case it has been newer people making accusations. Funny, indeed.
