It's part of the spider bite effect; he instinctively knows how make webbing out of common ingredients.

Also, a wizard did it. Maybe The Wizard, who can appear in the sequel played by let's say...Gerard Butler.

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

Saw the trailers. Lizard looks good. Don't like the new Spider Man at all. He's too mousy as Spidey.

Overall, they should have left it with Rami.

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

Sony and Rami parted ways over creative differences. What do people not understand about this? "Leaving it with Rami" was never an option.

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

Honestly, in hindsight, I don't think Rami's films are anything to have praise over (especially the third one.)

They were good for it's time and certainly helped to "re-define" and "mainstream" comic book-hero movies but since then we've had quite a few comic book movies that have really set the bar high and in comparison the Rami movies just look... lame.

Hopefully the new movie will bring the right "tone" and "edge" to the Spider-man franchise so it's a little more in step with what present-day comic book-hero movies are doing.

No one forced Sony to "part ways" with Rami. They could have (and should have) listened to him.

One was just about perfect (Kirsten Durnst notwithstanding). Two was very good. Three was a bit crowded, but still more than acceptable.

Not to me...now you want to talk about superhero films that look lame next to the current crop, look at the Singer X-Men films...

Based on the trailer I saw, I'm not holding my breath.

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

Of course Sony could listen to him, but Rami got really tired of their interference (and probably of listening to Arad all the time) and decided to leave. This stuff happens all the time, look at what happened between Favearu and Marvel Studios, practically the same thing.

I'm a fan of the original trilogy, especially the first two films, but even they have their flaws and are not perfect movies. People have pointed out their issues with them all through this thread and in the original Spider-Man 4 thread we had as well. I've read what was reported to be a treatment for 4 and it was horrible. I was already pretty hesitant about that film despite the casting it had. Sony decided to reboot because again, they have to keep on putting out films in order to retain the rights, they are very aware that Disney/Marvel is chomping at the bit to reacquire their flag ship character. They also know the fan demand is there as well to see what Marvel Studios could do with Spider-Man. I was at first totally against the notion of a reboot so soon, but eventually have changed my mind. Maybe I won't like the film after I see it, or maybe I will love it. I don't know. To this point though I've been impressed with what I have seen and heard and read from everyone involved. I'm at least willing to give it a chance.

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

^Fair points all, Admiral...all I'm saying is that, with only the trailer to go on, I'm not sold on this film. This Peter Parker just doesn't work for me in the scenes included, in or out of costume. I prefer Toby's Spidey, or maybe Josh Keaton's (Spectacular Spider-Man animated series).

This.
Sony was the one using the bully stick.

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

Three was just terrible. There's pretty much nothing redeemable about it. The biggest issues are the "emo Spidey" scenes, Venom was very, very, poorly done. The Saturday Night Fever Strut, the "musical" scene in the diner, fuck pretty much anytime the symbiont suit is making Peter act like a smug jackass instead of tormenting the very core of his soul.

And don't even get me started on the whole "We need to set-up the last act/action piece but we've no time to do it so we'll just have the "Exposition News Channel" do it. Oh and the butler just decides after years of knowing it to fill Harry in on how his father died. Which, of course, causes Harry to instantly change all of his feelings and motives, things that have driven him for years.

Ugh, that movie is just so terrible on so many levels. It makes not a single damn lick of sense. Not one iota of it.

You realize all this was Sony's fault. They and Arad forced Venom on Raimi. He had to make due with what he had. If it looks forced, uncertain and terrible it's cause his heart really wasn't into the character(imo).

The same Sony who didn't want Raimi to use Lizard, now allows Webb to do so.
The Sony who wanted to force Raimi to turn the Vulture into the Vultress for the sole rationale of having a female lead. Seeing a pattern here for where the bad ideas are coming from?
