Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Simmons: ...strangely he was sort of less on his own in the third film and it kinda felt like there were a lot of cooks stirring the pot in that third film.
I know some people still like to hang the third movie's mixed results squarely on Sam saying, "Well he was responsible for making it work" but you can't do that fairly.
Simmons comment here only shows that even the actors were aware of the overt studio hands on involvement for Spidey 3 and how it hurt the film.

- Howell plays a construction worker whose son is in danger
- Scene with Lizard VS Spidey on Manhattan Bridge
- In the beginning of the movie, Spidey is considered a baddie by the people
- Howell's character helps sway the negative opinion on Spidey (near the end of the film), due to Spidey saving his son

C Thomas Howell talks his role in the movie. Some of you may consider this spoiler-ish:

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I wonder if people consider Peter to be a "menace" due to Daily Bugle propaganda? As I suspected after it was revealed Jonah wouldn't be in it that we could still have him be a big presence in the back ground.

Finally saw (500) Days of Summer last night. Very clever and stylishly done.

Spidey could be in good hands.

It occurs to me that the centrality of the newspaper and print media may be one item of the Spidey mythos that is dated and could be changed.

The workings of the Daily Bugle, Spidey's job as a reporter getting pictures for the paper, Jameson himself, that whole aspect of Spiderman's story and supporting cast does feel increasingly anachronistic.

Peter should work for The Onion!

^ That'd be awesome. I like Ultimate Spider-Man's take on Peter and the Bugle.

I thought that sort of point was touched on in an interesting fashion in Superman Returns, when a kid with a cellphone took a better picture of Supes in action than Jimmy Olsen did.

^ There was also a similar joke in "Spider-Man 3" when Jonah was trying to take a picture of the Venom and Sandman battle and he tried to procure the use of the little girls? Cell phone.

I confess I haven't watched it yet, but didn't THE CAPE try to address this by making the Lois Lane type a blogger?

I think one of the Superman reboot ideas was that print papers are dying and Superman re energizes the newpaper industry when he arrives

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

^ Superman: Earth One plays with this idea. The Daily Planet is failing and Superman shows up it's implied that it will enjoy a new boon. In Ultimate Spider-Man, Peter works at the Bugle as their newsite's webmaster. He just recently was rehired by Jameson (the two of them have a new understanding after recent events).

From what I've read online about the film's plot the Daily Bugle doesn't figure into this film at all except on billboards on the bus and around the city.

Orwell was a blogger but I am not sure she is a Lois Lane type of character...I didn't see her that way...plus THE CAPE did have a wife and she is an attorney...I see her more like Lois Lane in many ways.

[edit] Plus Orwell in many ways was a vigilante/side-kick...not reporter/love interest.

[add] They should have Peter work for TMZ.
