Why even wait for the second to be released?

http://story.news.yahoo.com/ news?tmpl=story&u=/nm/ 20040303/ film_nm/leisure_spiderman_dc_3

So Spiderman 3 is now a go for 2007. Could this mark the big screen debut of VENOM~!

But the bigger question is, while we know Tobey's set to return, is Sam Raimi?

Dunno, but Willem Dafoe was heavily hinting on The Daily Show last night that he's going to be involved with it somehow.

If Dafoe is going to be in the third one, it probably means that the plan is to finally turn Norman into the new Green Goblin (or perhaps the Hobgoblin to put a bit of a twist onto it).

Also, they could take the Batman route and start putting two villains in one movie.

I mean, I don't want to be negative or anything, but shouldn't they wait until they are sure the second movie doesn't suck and makes some money before they set up another sequel? I mean it looks good, but what if it disappoints or turns out to be like Batman Returns or worse, Batman and Robin?

Avi Arad says a lot of things. A Hulk sequel for instance that will have more action and more "HULK SMASH"! The first movie didn't make a lot of money and went over budget, so I don't know how they plan on making a sequel with MORE action for less or the same amount of money. I mean, so many people disliked the first film so much, is it even worth the try?

Uh....


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read

Norman Osborn [Willem Dafoe] AKA the Green Goblin DIED at the end of Spider-Man. Unless they plan on rehashing the god-awful Clone Saga and having Osborn get a healing factor from the Goblin Formula, he ain't coming back.

True dat...BUT, they seem to be being pretty damned faithful to the comics in terms of storyline...and considering Harry Osborn becomes the Green Goblin and swears revenge on Spider-Man (after finding out that it's Peter), I figure that instead of rehashing bad storylines...they could rehash GOOD ones.

I don't know how the speculation here can be considered spoilers, since its mostly discussing what happened in the comic book and nothing is known about the movie. Anyway, Dafoe could maybe be talking about reprising Goblin's role either in flashbacks or by having one of the characters dream/hallucinate a discussion with him, much like Osborn's "conversation" with the Goblin (represented by the mask/helmet) in the first one.

Good lord, I'm an idiot. I meant to say HARRY Osborn in my original post, not Norman....Norman, of course, was killed in the first movie.

Geez, I read Spidey comics for nine years. For shame.

If Dafoe is involved, what would make the most sense would be for him to be the voice of the Green Goblin, ala James Earl Jones as Darth Vader. I can't really see the guy who plays Harry doing the Goblin voice anyway.

That is a very valid point. It would certainly confuse spidy. "Norman...is...back?????"

That would be awesome.

Or they just need Dafoe for flashbacks in Harry's mind, much like George Lucas adding Natalie Portman to ROTJ.

And I love Venom, for the record, but I don't think they should pull that trigger yet. Go with the Harry as GG story first.

And speaking of multiple villians in comic book movies, can you imagine if they did the Sinister Six? It could either be the biggest mess ever or the coolest pack of freaks (and most dangerous foes) ever.

Sandman would be WAY cool. Not to mention Electro.

But I guess before they get to The Sinister Six, they need to introduce Hobby somehow. God I love that character.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and lest we forget, KRAVEN~! is waiting in the wings.

True, but if they're doing Sinister Six-era Hobgoblin, wouldn't that be the demonic version, not the first one? (And it's nice to see that someone else likes the Hobgoblin character).

Apparently the original three Star Wars films still aren't done, even after adding tons of distracting CG crap in every scene, and Lucas wants to put more stuff, like flashback scenes of Natalie Portman in them. I had heard he wanted to add it to the original Star Wars, but does it really matter which one he adds to?

Bitching about Star Wars on the internet on Saturday Night. *sigh*

If they did do the Sinister Six, perhaps the plot of the third film could be Harry Osborn as the WhateverGoblin teaming with Doc Ock, and they join forces with four others (presumably Electro, Sandman, Mysterio and Vulture) to take down Spidey. I'm leaving Kraven out because he probably has enough depth to fill a movie by himself.

Or, if the franchise gets REALLY far, they could save the Sinister Six for the sixth movie.

My two cents:


Spiderman 3 is already greenlighted because more than likely this movie will probably top the 100 million dollar opening weekend that the first one did. Even if its horrible and word of mouth tanks it after that, it will still be profitable. I HATED the first Spiderman and Im still going to see the sequel, if that means anything. But I have a three year old who loves Spiderman so im stuck either way.


And I know alot of comic book fans want these movies to really bring to life all the characters in the books but I think Comic book movies should stick to the most popular characters. I think thats what helped kill Batman. Once you get past the most popular villains, non comic book readers like myself would lose interest. After Doctor Octopus, I think Spiderman could do Venom, MAYBE Kingpin, if you wanted to bring him over from DareDevil. After that, I dont know who the hell this Kraven guy is.

Agreed. As much as it'd rule to have a Kravem-centric movie, Venom and Carnage are where it's at in terms of widespread popularity, and there's no way in Hell Sony are gonna pass up such a golden opportunity in favour of one of the lesser comic-book villains. Then again, X2 used Styker, one of the least-active figures of X-Men lore, and that did just fine. Eh, who knows.

People would assume that Stryker was a made for the movie villain if they never heard of him. But, I agree that the A-List Rogue Gallery should be used. (Meaning no Black Fox, maybe the Black Cat for a love triangle thing. While I hate her music, I think Jessica Simpson has the figure for her and would LOOK great in the part.)

It wouldn't be too hard to get the S6 together. They're a gang, basically. They rob banks and what not. They could render the CG for Electro and Sandman pretty easily. Electro is basically Lightning from Big Trouble in Little China, but today's technology is 100x better. Sandman would be done like the T-1000 from T2.

While Daredevil was cool, does he have a foe outside of Bullseye, Fisk, or Electra? I collected his book when stuff crossed over into it, and I can't think of a foe of his that wasn't borrowed from the FF or Spidy or Punisher. (For all intents and purposes, I think of Spidy as Marvel's Superman and DD is their Batman. Spidy wants to do the right thing, and DD wants the skum off the streets at all costs, IMO)

Some interesting "crossovers". Spidy got his ass handed to him my Magneto and Dr. Doom a few times. They could pose some interesting story lines. They are heroes really.

Magneto thinks that the only way to get mutant rights is by any means necessary, and Doom will do anything to protect his people. For all the shitty things he's done, his people have always been safe. That could be used as a plot device where a former royal from Laveria was expelled and Doom's family took over and he plots revenge. Where is he staying? in NYC, of course!
