We were supposed to have seen Felicia in "Spider-Man 2" (Rami wanted Eliza Dushku for the part) but this was quashed by Avi. Then again in "Spider-Man 3" but again quashed by Avi.

Avi needs to STFU and let his creators do their jobs. As a potential customer, I'm getting sick of his meddling in projects I'd like to see.

Was Avi the reason why Venom was shoved into Spider-Man 3?

Terry Crews, who has among the least cred for this, actually got Snipes role. His role was made for Snipes but Snipes was in court, under house arrest when the first EX was filming and was considered a flight risk(?) so the judge wouldn't let him out country to film.

And as Admiral Young said, a WWE and MMA person are in the movie which means Snipes has loads of cred for Expendables.

Re: what's next for Marvel (movies)?

Crews was actually the fourth person who Stallone courted for the role of Hale. As Captain Craig correctly states it was written and offered to Snipes, the it was re-written for Forrest Witaker who had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts, then 50 Cent who I think accepted, but then also later had to drop out due to scheduling...and finally Crews.

Does he have some kind of issues with the character or something?

Re: what's next for Marvel (movies)?

I don't think it's an issue with the character, as much as it is Avi forcing his own "cool" ideas. Like I've mentioned in the "Spider-Man" thread...I'm curious to know if he imposed as much interference on Webb's production as he did during the Rami films.

Avi wanted Venom because he "sells", period.

Re: what's next for Marvel (movies)?

The main problem with Venom is that he was treated like a secondary character. That movie did not need two villains.

The villain in Demolition Man, Passenger 57, Rising Sun, US Marshals, Drop Zone, countless direct to DVD movies. He's certainly a step up from Jean-Claude Van Damme, who Sly also asked to be in The Expendables.

Anyway, why would you exclude Blade? You wouldn't exclude Conan from Arnie's CV, or Sin City from Bruce's?

Snipes doesn't rank with Schwarzenegger, Stallone and Willis, but he ranks above Van Damme, Seagal and Lundgren.

Which is kind of a silly reason to force him into SM3. After Spider-Man 2, the third movie was going to sell no matter what.

Actually it had THREE villains if you count Sandman, Harry, and Venom. One of the big problems I had with the movie was how overcrowded it was.

Re: what's next for Marvel (movies)?

I didn't get the flying snowboard.

Was Harry secretly a genius, or did Norman make it for Harry, or make it for himself because Norman Osborn is all about flying snowboards?

3 was just a mess.

And then when they said in 3 that they were celebrating the one year anniversary of Ben's death?

So let me understand this?

There's 3, but 12 months earlier Peter was half way through his final year in highschool?

Bring it On was more thought out.

Re: what's next for Marvel (movies)?

Avi pushed for Venom so far because he thought he was the cool villain that we fans all wanted to see. He was right. We just didn't want to see HIS version of Venom.
