    I agree you dont have to be knowledgeable of a comic from the begining to make a good comic book film. But i do feel that some times the fan in you can make you do stupid crap. All of us as fans know had we been in the directors chair we would all make a zillion different versions of the same comic. Think about it there the same all over the country issue 234 is the same in ny as it is in la. But we all would want to put our own input and our own ideas. Samarami done good with the first 2 this one may be great too. But from my stand point i feel venom is being pushed out to early and some fans are responsible

    If any one of us on these boards made the spider-man movies there would be just as many complaints and probably more. we each got our own spider-man and we each related to him a different way. He's the every man hero.

    I remember when the first movie came out. All the reviews said it was extremely close to the source material. I'm sure at first the boards all said the same thing. people just like to complain sometimes because it makes them feel big or something.

    They didn't? If you add MIchael Jackson's solo records with his Jackson 5 records he's the biggest selling artist of all time. If you only count his solo records he's the second biggest artist of all time, and second only to the Beatles.

    Harry Potter is not Spider-Man. IF you get another director he will change everything.

    Couldn't of said it better... you can't make everyone happy... and no movie can be perfect... it's just not possible... the movies are separate from the comics so take it for wat it is... overall a very exciting franchise that really couldn't be much better than what they are right now...

    i dont think its a matter of feeling big its more of a matter of being a fan. just like sports fans feel like there part of the team when the reds win fans walk around feeling like the 10th man on the field screaming we won we won.. not that there is anything wrong with that but that is why peopl ecomplain they feel its thier's and noone but them should talk or touch it.

    That's not true. That really isn't. Elvis was big in America but on a worldwide scale MIchael Jackson and The Beatles are in their own league with whoever the third person is being way, way, way back there looking like a fly compared to them.

    on a side note if it wasn't for child abuse allegations most likely Michael jackson's solo career would have eventually left the Beatles in the dust. Even when his skin was white, nose falling off, and everybody convinced he was gay, his Dangerous album was selling so fast that industry experts predicted it was going to become the worlds biggest selling album of all time knocking his Thriller to worldwide second place. About a year into it's release when it was still selling at record paces the allegations came out, and it killed it. At that time he hadn't even made videos for the album's best songs, and the videos were always his biggest attraction.

    This is the second time i've seen MJ (the other MJ) and two separate threads.... just kinda amusing.... but back to the topic.... i overall can honestly say that I am not all that concerned about the quality of this movie based on what we know up to this point... The movies have been good up to this point, but it is pointless to beg for major changes at this juncture... Tobey is what he is, Dunst is what she is, and Raimi is what he is and if people can't accept that... then they will be suprised with SM3, whether for the better or worse...

    No we can never get back on topic. Nevvveeeeerrrrrr! :)

    So what you guys think about the Bush administration supporting the sharing of nuclear technology with India who happens to be training Iran's military, who we happen to be drawing up plans for war with to stop them from getting nuclear technology?

    I know what Motwon is. It created Michael Jackson. I never heard of the funk brothers. but just so you know MOtown is a record company. not a music artist.

    no need to PM me anything, I'll just check it out through the internet. thanks though.

Topher Grace. And playing the part of Aunt May a Cat that can juggle.lol

    dude venom has so much potential....he's not just some cheesy guy with a plan to take over the world or whatever.....he's a scary ass monster who wants nothing but to tear spidey apart. I almost am tempted to say I don't want him to be like he is in the comics...I want nothing more than a scary killing monster, almost like doomsday from superman. He has no corporation to run, no sun making thingee to build, he justs wants to kill spiderman! HE IS THE PERFECT BAD GUY and he's unlike any bad guy we've ever seen on screen.

    Well that could work. I imagine it as Peter noticing something wrong with doc conners throughout the movie during the day while at night he battles the mysterious lizard-man. then of course, later it is revealed who the lizard is. :up::) good thinking.

    He has potential, but you didn't describe any in your post. Not only that but the description you gave is of the very boring kind of villain which have been in movies countless times.

    Can you say Bane? horrible Batman movie?

    I'm posting this here cause i didnt get any replies in the other thread... it's
    been talked about a million times... but if the spoilers were correct and Venom indeed dies (Brock's Version atleast) I'm not saying it's a good idea... but maybe it can work:

    Let's say Sandman fights Spidey... Spidey gets symbiate to ward off Sandman... Spidey notices changes in his personality... gets rid of suit... Brock finds it... Kills Sandman and becomes new hero of the city after being fired from the Bugle... then goes beserk... Harry kills Brock at end.... Symbiate escapes.... i know it's far fetched... but if Brock is indeed dying... it might work...

    The hell you talking about? So your essentially saying that you need to be a fan in order to make a good spider-man movie?? How absurd. What s ironic is, Raimi claims to be a fan yet the spider-man movies are riddled with innacuracies, poor attempts at impressing me, someone who's been reading the comics for 18 years and all in all, Raimi has managed to produce 2 mediocre flicks undershadowed by the movies' own hype. Please, you must think a director must be a fan or appreciate the fact that there are sick, twisted individuals to make films about. I suppose you think we need more serial killers for hollywood to draw inspiration from to make better horror movies.
    Anybody who knows what spider-man is about and the characters involved and who has the directing skills to make a good movie can direct a spidey movie, simple as. Your logic is horrendously flawed and thats what you need to realise. People like you give Avi Arad a reason to wake up every morning and decide to green-light stupid ideas like, a magneto movie.

    Furthermore, look at Goyer, he's fan of blade but look at blade 3. A total crapfest. Fix up dude.

    those directors wont make a movie anything like the comic book was. that's the point. they would turn everything upside down. PROFESSIONAL movie critics and audiences all over the world have praised these movies as the best of the best. It's already set to be the biggest franchise of all time by the time it ends.

    If Venom is the other villian, They will have Sandman and GG2 for most of the movie. Spiderman will need the symbiote to defeat those two villians. But Spiderman will force the symbiote away after it almost makes him kill Harry, then the symbiote will fall into Brock's hands which sets up SM4....or at least thats how I would do it.:spidey:

    I wouldn't worry about Venom too much. I'm pretty confident he'll only be revealed at the very end of the movie leading up to Spider-Man 4.

    This movie will focus on the Green Goblin 2 and Sandman.

    Venom sets up part 4.

    :spidey:
