    Anyone think they can throw The Beetle in Spider-Man 4 as simply an opening sequence where some hi-tech criminals are trying to steal something from like some museum and they show the Beetle in some cool hi-tech costume and him and Spider-Man have a nice opening kick ass action sequence where the Beetle is put in his place as a C rate villian?

    Think it would be cool. Then again you can use Shocker or Rhino for the same purpose.:spidey:

    Though I like Beetle, I'd rather see him in an Iron Man movie.

    Beetle is a cool Villan, but I don't think he should be in a Spider-Man film.

    Eh, probably not. I would like to see Shocker though.
    A little creativity put into that costume could be pretty sweet.

    Heh.
    "Where do these guys come from?"

    The Beetle was a weak villain. And more of a D-class one too.
     
  8. Yeah I think so to

    Shocker really isn't an A list Villian, so I don' think he would work in a Spidey film. Shocker is cool though.

    Ahem.....since when do you have to be an A list villain to be in these movies? Sandman is a B villain at best and he was in SM3. Shocker could easily work into these movies simply as a thug or opening scene fight as someone stated earlier.

    Save Beetle for the Iron man.

    No, Sandman, though he hasn't been taken as seriously in recent years, is definately one of Spidey's lower-level A-list villains, the others being:

    Carnage
    Doctor Octopus
    Electro
    Green Goblin
    Hobgoblin
    Kraven
    Lizard
    Mysterio
    Scorpion
    Venom
    Vulture

    Shocker is definately B-list, and would not be able to carry a movie as a central villain. He wasn't even able to hold his own as a central villain in the comics.

    ^^^^
    Most of those guys you listed are B villains. A list villains usually are very few, while B an C villains usually are the bulk of a super heroes rogue gallery. In this case, Spideys only got 3 A list villains:

    Green Goblin
    Doc Ock
    Venom

    I think you could add Lizard to that list.

    And you're right about those being a class above the others I listed. But if those guys are B-list, then that knocks Shocker down to C-list.

    I only say Shocker is a B villain because hes managed to defeat Spidey more times than most of the other villains have.
