The death of Gwen Stacy from his point of view would be a masterpiece.
And as I've said before, the death of Gwen Stacy can't work in a movie.
A thousand times no. It has to be Spider-Man, not Tim Burton's Spider-Man.
So maybe not that story line, but I think Tim Burton has a great way of revealing the darker side of his characters while also showcasing their humanity and vulnerability. The right story could definitely benefit from Burton's touch.
I'll watch anything by Burton, honestly.
As long as he doesn't cast Johnny Depp as Peter Parker...as a villain, possibly.
I voted no
I always thought that Burton movies always had that cartoony/"grand guignol"esque feeling and I don't know if Spider-Man could fit with Burton's style
(at least there would be chances of getting a huge Venom lol...)
Not at all.
I could see Tim Burton doing WONDERS with the symbiote and Venom.
Other than that, Burton and Spider-Man would not work out.
Defenitley no. Sam Raimi directs Spider-Man much better than Tim Burton can.
No. His style is way off base, too kooky if you will.
Haha. Well, they have already made Spider-Man a musical...
But yeah, I guess I'm a pretty kooky person myself.
I think it would be cool for Tim Burton to direct a Spider-Man movie because it would be a change.
no, no never in a thousand years
if he directed it not only would gwen stacy die
but the entire spiderman movie, comic, and novel business would
plus gwen can't really die
it's kinda hard when goblin is dead
It would never happen, they want to keep it light and that can't happen with Burton at the reigns.
Why would you even suggest such a thing?
If he did then we'd have Johhny Depp as Spidey and Helen Bonhem Carter as MJ. There's no way in hell they'd let him do a spidey movie
Hell no, it would be the batman series again, the last spider-man got messed up we dont need something even worse happening to the series...
This was clearly suggested by someone who doesn't know very many directors. I guess the thought process was "Tim Burton's style = Dark. Gwen Stacy's death = Dark. Therefore, Tim Burton = Good Director for Spider-Man."
No. Tim Burton's style is that of dark whimsy, which is not at all suited to Spider-Man. He isn't even in the top 50 best guys to handle to death of Gwen Stacy, which probably won't even happen in the movies. I love Tim Burton, but it's not as if his skill with heartbreaking death scenes is something he's been acknowledged for.
Again, I love Tim Burton's style, but his style makes him. He wouldn't be able to separate the material from his own vision, and if he did, what would be the point?
Personally, I'm raising my hand in favor of Joss Whedon.
I think Tim Burton would do a Goblin story with a style, not mentioning that he would not let "certain designs" be final ones for a film. He would also make a good Symbiot and maybe a Lizard story. He has a unique perception of darkness that would fit in a future Spidey film.
Spider-Man is not dark and whimsical... Tim Burton's style is essentially the bastard child of Dr. Seuss and Edgar Allan Poe. I don't get how anyone could want Tim Burton to do Spider-Man, unless they sincerely are just naming one of three directors that they know.
I'm all for unconventional choices (such as Raimi, Jackson, Curaon, etc) choices to do mainstream summer blockbuster genre flicks. They usually stand out better afterwards.
But to this? No. Burton isn't even unconventional, someone just saw Batman (1989) or Batman Returns and came up with this idea. Mind you I won't bandwagon against those movies, as I find them to be superb superhero movies and above SM3 at the very least.
But he is just wrong for so many reasons as he doesn't adapt material (save for really Big Fish and to a lesser extent Ed Wood) as re-envision it to fit his own ideas.
He wouldn't stay close to what ye fanboys want anyway and if you thought you were *****ing about Raimi...my God would you never be quiet about Burton.
Tim Burton to direct a Spider-Man movie?
What DACrowe said pretty much sums it up.
