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

in Ultimate Spidey, the Bugle was dying as well. JJ says as much to Urich in USM: Requiem after Loeb's shitfest known as Ultimatum dropped a tidal wave on New York.

I'm behind on the trades, but I recall that Betty Brandt turned to online reporting/blogging after Electro trashed the The Daily Bugle (by then already turned into low-rent tabloid The DB!).

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

^ Yeah that's pretty much what happened. The Front Line I think used bloggers and online reporting as well.

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

Not surprised they retained him. That's good I think for maintaining continuity purposes and flow for the trilogy. I still think we're going to have arc spread out through each of the three films, instead of themes and arcs in self-contained films like the Rami trilogy.

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

I wonder if we'll get another Green Goblin in the second film, with possible hints in the first film (ala Batman Begins and the Joker Card). William Dafoe was good as Norman Osborn, but the Raimi Goblin costume is silly and now, dated. I'm thinking something like the comic-allowing us to see some expressions this time without giving away the identity. Or maybe something like Harry's outfit in the third film.

^ I'm thinking that since Harry and Norman weren't cast in the first film, this could very well be the case.

I think they should have face-paint (with accessories like skullcap and maybe ears). Go for a "Joker warpaint" theme that makes his face look rubbery and goblinesque but still able to emote. Kind of like "Fear Gas Batman" from Batman Begins.
In the comics, the GG mask has always had an unnatural facial cling anyways. It's just a practical version of the same thing.

That's too much imitation as flattery for my taste. I enjoyed what Nolan did with Joker and the "war paint" as much as the next guy but that motif doesn't work for Goblin.

The goblin outfit is indeed in need of an even closer representation to the comics(purple tunic for instance) but war paint is not plausible imo.

^ 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.
I don't know if it was intentional but that story makes Clark Kent/Superman the biggest asshole on the planet. He stops to conduct a fake interview with himself in which he comments that people still need digging out.

Why not? Norman went for the "war paint" look under his Iron Patriot mask in Siege.

I didn't read all parts of Siege so I missed that. Was that painted look meant to look like a Goblin or something else? Got a pic just to help me out?

Still, it just screams rip-off. I'd rather not see that look for the Goblins.

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

Clark interviewing himself is not really a big deal and I believe has been done before, but yeah we're rehashing old debates in a non-Superman thread.

I just hope that if we see the Goblin again that they don't make his costume a silly looking armor. I wouldn't mind seeing the Ultimate version of the Goblin either.

In the comics what makes the Goblin mask cool is that you can make out every facial expression because it's not only skintight, but goes around his nose, wrinkles, and he can even open his mouth and laugh or frown and the "mask" captures it. never seen a mask that does that. Can't even imagine one that wouldn't look stupid.

That's what is important, if you cover up his face you've gotten rid of all it. To me the only options are "face-paint" (meticulously detailed, not sloppy a la the Joker), or makeup (like the "fear gas Batman") representing transformation.

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

Norman was wearing war paint in Siege because he was on the verge of going into full Goblin mode again thanks to the Void's influence (I think it was the Void).
