    Sorry. I don't do that. And I walked out of TDKR teary eyed, and with a smile on my face. But I have a soul so...

    I think you mean cliched and uncreatively.

    :o i have a soul... a severely dissapointed one. i mean really... Catwoman used a heel and a gun as her weapons of choice in this film... CATwoman...

    this felt like the X-men films to me.. which is really sad because the previous were great

    yup... total cliche... even though it rarely happens in superhero films... and is one of the most acclaimed stories, as well as one of the most beloved. Yup.. totalllllly cliche

    I don't want Gwen to die, the girlfriend of the hero dying is one of the most meh cliches these days, so I'm definitely looking forward to it NOT happening

    no actually, I meant gut-wrenching just like I said. You have no idea how I would write it, given the opportunity. So don't try to assume that you do.

    How is that uncreative? Your idea sounds like Spider-Man 3.2.

    How is that cliched? What movie has that happened in besides the Dark Knight? It happens a lot in comics but this is not a cliche by any means.

    Wait so one of the most creative stories in Spider-Man is uncreative and cliched? So what exactly is the creative alternative? Peter and Gwen have their ups and downs but end up together and live happily ever after?

    Lol true, but killing Gwen is definitely not the most cliched or uncreative choice by any means.

    Heaven forbid they should actually take one of the most famous and memorable stories in all of comicdom and have it accurately depicted onscreen.:o

    And what the hell is she supposed to use? SHE'S A ****ING CATBURGLAR! Anything else would just be stupid. Seriously, it's just fanboy whining, and holds no merit.

    Beloved by who? Obsessive Spider-Man comic book fanboys? Cause I gotta tell ya noone else, outside of those you've forced this idea upon of course, gives two ****s about this. Cliche: see: Stereotype. Stereotype: something conforming to a fixed or general pattern; esp : a standardized mental picture held in common by members of a group and representing an over-simplified opinion, effective attitude, or uncritical judgement (as of a person, a race, an issue, or an event). You were saying?

    Yes I do. And with the disappointingly few amount of voices against this, I have to make myself heard. And it's been like three days. :D

    That's odd, considering I've yet to express an idea for what should happen. I've expressed alternative concepts and scenarios, quite a few actually, but haven't commited to a single one of them to even remotely be considered as a proposed "idea" of any sort. But, ya see, that's what's so great about my viewpoint. I'm not creatively limited by the restrictions of the comic books. I see the many, beautiful, possibilities. You, only see one. This is very well demonstrated by you thinking that just because something has similarities to a previous concept, like, for instance, a villain helping a hero, that it's automatically viewed as nothing more than a copy, ignoring the complete difference in both situation and characters, which is quite close-minded, and kinda prejudice. You're in the box, friend. And yes, uncreative, as in it's been done before. There's a whole comic about it. You should read it. It's not bad.

    If you respected the source material you'd understand that what made the story a classic was that it was new, shocking, a first, and to dilute it into anything less than that by forcing it upon the films is a disgusting disservice to the integrity of the story. And it's hardly famous.

    I agree with spideyboy, ".............?"

    stunned silence.

    adapting comic book source material into films "is a disgusting disservice to the integrity of the story"???

    for someone who loiters on comic book movie forums like the rest of us... you got some strange opinions Dagen

    Kind of. On film, it would be, that is. It's just not practical in the universe Nolan had established. But like I said, just the whining of an obsessive comic book fanboy, that holds no merit.
