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.
You must have ignored pretty much every latex appliance made in the last 60 years.

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.
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)

I wouldn't mind a mash-up of 616 and Ultimate Goblins. A physical transformation would explain the emotive green face, but aside from super-strength, his other capabilities would be technological, not genetic.

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

the problem with using Ultimate Gobby is that without it being part of the MCU, it runs the risk of being a lame rip-off of Hulk and also a kinda rip-off of SM1, as Norman was experimenting with a super-soldier serum in SM1 and Ultimate Gobby is a huge green hulking creature...

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

^ The genetically enchanced formula that Norman used in "Spider-Man" was taken from Ultimate Spider-Man. It was basically the Oz formula (which has never really been fully explained except that Norman was developing it for Justin Hammer in the books). Good points about it being similiar to the Hulk though. Norman basically does go into Gobby mode when he gets angry lol.

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

The serum thing had always been part of the Goblin's story, in all iterations. Ultimate merely disagrees in the extent of its effects. I say, do a Gremlin-like face on the guy, but leave him looking scrawny. That should distinguish him from Hulk, and bring actual Goblins to mind. I agree though, that without connections to the larger Marvel universe wherein Cap, Hulk, and GG are all results of research into the same concept, it loses some of its plausibility.

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

I also wonder if the reboot will use Doctor Octopus at some point as well. I'd rather he not be in the same movie as the Goblin....Spider-Man 3 already suffered from villain overload, and to my knowledge the two villains have rarely worked together in the comics (If anything, Ock seemed to hang around more with the Hobgoblin).

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

There were early rumors that the reboot would feature an original villain but that seems to have been proven false. I'd like to see the Vulture in the second movie. That was one aspect of "Spider-Man 4" that I was looking forward to seeing.

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

Couldn't you make the Goblin's serum/ toxin like the effects of Dioxin? His skin would turn green instead of grey and he could get those bumbs on his face. Of course he wouldn't have pointy ears, but you can get over that. Then just give him the purple shirt and the hat or hood. He could be a Clemson tigers fan

I'm looking forward to villains they haven't used yet (IE The Lizard, maybe Kraven and then Green or maybe HobGoblin, Doc Ock.) If only they could get Kingpin in there.

As Admiral Young said, I was looking forward to Vulture. I think Sam had big plans for him and Lizard.

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

^ As much as I was looking forward to the Vulture, I was not really looking forward to the rumored Vultress role that Anne Hathaway was rumored for. Ridiculous concept. If I remember correctly, she was supposed to be Felicia Hardy but like the daughter of the Vulure or something like that lol.

^ Yeah, that was it. The studio had no faith in Black Cat. Ironic that Anne Hathaway is now playing the other Cat villainness!

^ Which is kind of weird since they had plans to introduced Black Cat in "Spider-Man 2" and heavily considered Eliza Dushku for the role.
