Another 3 Spideys

05.07.2007by:
Like everyone else on the planet I saw SPIDERMAN 3 at the weekend. On the whole I was fairly underwhelmed by the whole thing. My opinion obviously did nothing to halt the juggernaut at the box-office, since after demolishing PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST's record for biggest opening weekend, Sony has confirmed they'll be making a further 3 movies. Chief executive at Sony, Michael Lynton said they would continue to make "as many as we can make good stories for". My opinion is that they probably should have stopped at two then. Either that or taken the storylines from SPIDERMAN 3 and then spread them over at least two films. I don't think I'm alone in thinking there was just too much going on. Either way, Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and Sam Raimi have all yet to confirm their participation.
Extra Tidbit: Whatever happens, I hope they get Bryce Dallas-Howard back!

No! Say it ain't so! Don't look so shocked! Everyone knew it was comming! Even before the piece of COW SH*T known as Spider-Man 3 hit theatres, the studio had plans for cashing in more (crappy) Sequels...Btw Stan Lee, what a cheesy cameo on your part!

DOC OCK STILL AT LARGE!

I think spider-man should go on. The funny thing to me is that no one complains that james bond has a zillion movies, Yet everyone goes and sees them, And they change the lead character all the time, So why cant spider-man go on? If tobey wants out then find someone else to play parker/spidey. As far as some spidey 3 bashing I am reading. I think the movie was fantastic. The best one out of the past 2 films. Everyone is a critic i guess. As far as future villains, Lets have the Sinister Six in

And did anyone else notice the news paper in the background in the daily bugle that said "Doc Ock Still At Large", Im a comic book fanboy, and in the sinister six doc ock is the leader of the team. One quick note...I just read a article at a friends house on some website, Stating that Rhino was going to make a cameo in spidey 3 but they scratched the idea and never used it or filmed it. Part 3 was going to kick off with the end of part 2 where mj says go get em tiger and spidey web slings off in to the city, It was going to start off part 3 with him landing on the ground and show rhino tearing up the streets. That would have been cool.

Very True.

I have to agree with BigShime. Bryce Dallas-Howard was smoking hot in spider-man 3. If there is a 4th film, she better be in it.

As if the news of Die Hard 4 being rated PG-13 wasn't enough...

this is, in my mind, THE 2ND WORST MOVIE NEWS OF THE SUMMER.

Surpsingly, I actually liked Spider-Man 3. Could've dealt without the EMO Peter bullshit that stuck out like a whore in church, and it saddens me to know that Raimi really wanted nothing to do with Eddie Brock/Venom (hence the lack of screen time and proper character development), but overall it wasn't X2, or Batman Begins, but it certainly wasn't that shite X-Men: The Last Stand. So, I give it a 8/10.

Time to clean out the cobwebs...

... and get some fresh talent in there. At the very least, Sam needs to get back to low budget horror with some limitations.

HAHA NOT PREDICTABLE!

What the HELL CVD?
This was the most PREDICTABLE shiza I've ever seen ... OMG I found myself guessing the next scene, YEP got it right! YEP got it RIGHT! WAIT! Let me guess, Mary Jane will be kidnapped, YEP, OH WAIT Goblin Jr will fly in and help spidey! DING DING! Oh and what a surprise HE DIED! haha. God this was camp as a gay mardi gra parade! Terrible ending to what could have been a fantastic trilogy. Trite, unoriginal, boring and hectic. Can't believe it's getting the ratings and $$$ it

Gotta agree with Thoo on that one. I think they should have kept the original storyline with The Vulture and Sandman, and saved Venom for a future film. I always pictured him showing up in like 4 or 5, with a muuuuch bigger part than in 3.Raimi was basically bullied by Avi Arad to include Venom in this flick, it is not one of his favorite characters. I hope Raimi comes back with a couple classic villians and a whole new outlook next time around, if there is a next time, which I'm not so sure

Carnage will kill Gwen in Spidey 4, just like in the Ultimate Spider-Man books. It'll be interesting to see how they have Peter blame himself or be his fault.

But I wonder how they'll bring back Venom?

*SPOILERS*

Yeah, this was a film for real spidey fans alright. Between Peter looking like a Good Charlotte reject, completely unethical and uncharacteristic behavior (they symbiote would never, and never has, caused him to kill someone, let alone throw a grenade in his buddies face)and a scrawny, unintimidating, completely unbelievable Venom, this movie really catered to real Spidey fans. Bravo.

What do you guys want?

too much going on? Bullshit! I loved the fact that the movie wasn't predictable(like the other two are!)
Part 2 is so boring, it puts me to sleep everytime I watch it. This was a fanboy movie, for real spidey fans. Deal with it! Best Spiderman yet.

well, maybe next time around they wont have so much shit going on. spider-man 3 was good...definetly not as good as the other 2 movies, but there was too much going on. have 1-2 villians each movie, thats fair enough. i still would like to see electro, shocker, and the lizard (i think the character development is already there).

I totally agree; if Raimi is allowed to do his own thing, the movies won't be too bad.

I think part 3 was good, not great, but good and I wouldn't compare the Spider-Man movies to the Batman movies, yet. After all, I think the Batman franchise went downhill when Joel Schumacher decided to make the movies more like the TV show. Now, if Raimi, or some other director, wanted to turn the movies into Spider-Man from the Electric Company, then I would say the franchise was going down the crapper.

If 4,5 and 6 want to succeed they need to get Raimi and Tobey back, kill off MJ early and only stick with one (TWO AT MAX...not 3) storylines.

Wow.....hard to believe, but I'm with you on every single point you made there, Jim. Kudos! I guess my only questions are whose gonna have the honor of killing Gwen, and how are they gonna bring back Eddie?

Just watched it last night and I must say Spidey 3 did let me down...
Sandman = excelent
Harry "Goblin Jr." = good
Venom = underused (but he will be back fo' sho')
Black Spidey = it was ok.

I think the whole marketing around this ruined my viewing: plenty of trailers, 7 min. preview and the whole enchilada gave too much of the movie. It felt like I have seen it all in the previews...few was left unseen...

I do agree Bryce Dallas was so damn sexy. Bring her back pretty please!

Anakin my friend, The matrix peeps were making up the story as they went along. With Spidey, there's decades and decades of stories already written. They just need to be adapted. And so far, there hasn't been a shitty spiderman movie yet (yup, that's right folks, I liked spidey 3).

Just like fridge said, as long as Raimi isn't forced to include characters that he never intended to include, the movies will continue to be good. (as he was with Spidey 3 - He had no intention of Putting [link]

And now that Avi Arad has zero creative controll over marvel properties (as he resigned as the head of Marvel Studios) we won't have to worry about that.

Don't worry

First off, I liked the thrid film despite its flaws and am more than ready to watch more Spidey. Having said that, people fail to realize that venom isn't dead. Part of the symbiote got away after the explosion. You can see it. Also, Dr. Connors still has a sample. And last, with Venom being such a huge character, there is no way the studio would have given him 15 minutes only and then killed him off. I doubt we've seen the end of this guy.

I'm OK with it

While the 3rd installment wasn't nearly as good as the 2nd, and maybe comparable to the 1st, it was too much packed into one flick. They could have simply left Venom as the main villian for 4 (instead of killing him off within 30 minutes of his arrival). Speaking of which, why in the world do they have to kill every major villian? They killed the Goblin, Doc Ock looks to be dead (though all we see is him sinking and the arms go dark), and now Venom/Eddie Brock is gone. This is going the way

This is going the way of the 1st incarnation of the Batman franchise in that by the time you get to the 4th flick, you are dealing with B level villains that the average fan doesn't really know or connect with. Sure the followers that read the comics, or perhaps have caught the TV cartoon here and there might know some of them, but that'll be about it.

There is no way Maguire will do another three movies, maybe another one but that's it. It is doubtful that Raimi will direct another three, executive producer perhaps. Looks like we're probably going to see Lizard, Mysterio, Shocker, Rhino, Electro, etc

I agree, I really hope Bryce Dallas Howard comes back as well. Despite the fact that she really didn't have much to do in this movie,s he was still a great choice for Gwen, and looked absolutely incredible.
