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

Yeah the novelization was different to protect the spoilers concerning Jean's fate I think. Again though, it's been a while since they did an adaptation of one of their films. They've had tie-ins and what not.

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

Trekker mentioned that in his post...I think that was one of the last adaptations they did I think. I'll have to go take a look, but it has been a while.

Has Marvel done comic book adaptations of any of their movies? It seems like a no brainer to me, but I honestly can't remember if I've seen any. Or for DC movies for that matter.
There's a comic book adaptation of Iron Man.

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

I'm skeptical about this movie, but keeping an open mind. By the trailers, it looks like they're going with a new approach, that Parker was "meant" to be Spider-Man through someone else's design. I could be wrong, but that's what it looks like. Well, even if it fails, at least we'll probably be getting mechanical webshooters from now on in the movies....

And some of that Parker humor that was so sorely lacking in the Raimi films.

Hey, we got Parker mugging for the camera and doing a John Travolta impression.

Actually if you listen to the X2 commentary, singer said that the end was formulated late in the game, particularly the decision to "kill' Jean grey. Indeed, he came up with that as something he would really do the day they were filming the museum scene that happens early in the film, and took the actress aside and told her in private. this gave her something more to play, particularly in that scene where she has premonitions of something terrible happening.

The more I see footage from this movie, the more I'm struck by the influence of Ultimate Spider-Man on it.

Probably depends on ones opinion of Ultimate Spider-man.

For me it's not a positive.

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

It'd be a positive to me. The Rami movies also had influences from Ultimate Spider-Man...but to me Webb is using it better. Of course this is just my opinion of the trailers so far. As I've said...my opinion could change after seeing the film...but I doubt it
