So what do you guys think are some Spidey story arcs (other than The Night That Gwen Stacy Died) that should be adapted to screen in some way shape or form? Maximum Carnage is definitely one in my opinion.
 
Maximum Carnage has no story. It is just 12 issues of Carnage and his crew randomly slaughtering people. It should never be adapted.

I nominate Kraven's Last Hunt.
 
I'd like to see a lot of Spidey movies with Peter Parker married to MJ because I think him married had the most drama. Peter could be more mature (mid 20s) and seasoned.

Would be cool to see the wedding followed by Kraven's Last Hunt, Peter thinking of his recent marriage to help pull him out of the grave.

After that, I'd like to see the death of Aunt May ala issue 400, or they could have her discover Peter is Spider-man in the arc with Morlun.

Would be cool to see the death of Harry, where he is married with a son Normie. I thought the issues with him pushing the buttons with Peter's family life were intense before his death.

I would like to see some form of the clone saga and the return of Norman from the grave, followed by something like the arc in a Death in the Family where Norman threatens to kill everyone Peter knows including his own grandson Normie. Would be very dark like Kraven's Last Hunt.

Would also like an epic trilogy on Marvel Knights Spider-man 1-12.

What should never be adapted: One More Day. STAY AWAY.
 
The (Original) Clone Saga would offer a different twist and expand the Spider-Man universe. Would it work? I have no clue, but it'd be something different. Kraven's Last Hunt. The Six-Arms Saga would be cool too.

I nominate Kraven's Last Hunt.
I feel Kraven's Last Hunt would only work if you established a long-running history between the two characters, which I don't feel works in the context of a film unless he's in every film or there's a lot of stuff that's off screen
 
I agree with Op84 about Kraven's Last Hunt. THe story works so well because it goes with the established years of animosity between Spidey and Kraven.
It would be like adapted the main, non flashback part of The Killing Joke as Joker's first appearance in a new Batman movie

KLH could be modified, but I dont think it'll have the same punch

I support this.

Bring Kraven in, unrelated to Oscorp, hunting down the Spider-Man, the Lizard, Rhino, Black Cat, Doctor Octopus, Vulture, etc.

So much potential.

It'd probably work better as part of a TV series, but a long running series, as in more of a 5-10 season series as opposed to a 4 season series. Trust me, a season or two can make all the difference.

Kraven seems more interested in hunting those who have DNA of another animal grafted onto them like Spider-Man and Lizard as opposed to those who have technology-based abilities like the others you mentioned. Because you can't take away Spidey's or Lizard's powers unless you figure out how to do so scientifically. But all Rhino has to do is step out of his suit (or have it melted of him, depending on the incarnation), all Black Cat has to do is take off her gloves, all Doc Ock has to do is remove his harness, same with Vulture.
 
The Public Scrutinity arc from the Ultimate Spider-Man comic has some great things that i thing would work in a live action film, hell, it's almost a shame Captain Stacy isn't dead yet, because the way he went out in that story was perfect.
 
Quick thoughts:

* Carnage should never be adapted, period. He's an awful character whom I've always felt was a poor fit in Spider-Man's world.
* Kraven's Last Hunt would be very difficult to adapt. There's a lot of psychological material going on in that text that isn't going to work as dialogue.
* The Harry/Peter arc culminating in Spectacular Spider-Man #200 would make for a heck of a film.
 
I think they need to give the Venom storyline another shot.

I don't think that's necessary. Kraven wants to make the ultimate hunt before he dies and that's Spider-Man. He doesn't need a long running history of failures against Spider-Man for that.
 
Nothing can stop the Juggernaut. or something based on the "if this be my destiny" arc.
 
Although I agree Kravens Last Hunt would work better if we had a better feel of the history between Spider-Man and Kraven, and that a movie might pack less punch, but it's a great story none the less, and it might shock audiences enough with the fact that we don't have a fantastical villain, we have a guy with a gun, and he simply shoots Spider-Man. It's one of the finest Spider-Man stories out there and I would love to see it adapted.
 
This is probably the worst place to mention Sins Past/Remembered...
 
They have a legitmate excuse there to turn rhino from camp machine into the Joker...

I think if S6, Catwomen (woops black cat), TASM3, Venom and TASM4 all bomb, sony should make "SIns Past" as a final hurrah before they give the rights back to marvel, salt the earth, if you will.
 
If they ever brought him into the films, I'd like them to some sort of adaptation of the Hobgoblin mystery. Make it kind of a mystery film as well as an action/adventure film.
 
If they did that then who ever is Hobgoblin should be a character who's been in the movies from the start, or at least the beginning of the movie they reveal it in otherwise the audience would feel cheated.
