    The last spidey movie was decent. I liked the movie, but the new spiderman didn't really wow me at all.

    Hopefully Jamie can make up for spidey's lackluster performance

    I read that the next Spidey movie is supposed to be darker, more gritty. Mary Jane Watson is supposed to appear, but no word on if Gwen Stacey dies in 2 or 3.

    I like Garfield as an actor...I think there is more story to this one.

    They need another director. Jamie Foxx as Electro is a poor choice. Dude's a good actor but he'd be better off doing a blade reboot tied in to a spiderman movie with morbius or some shit.

    Fuck Electro, use shocker, Kingpin, Norman Osborne, Tombstone, Rhino and a cameo of Eddie Brock/Venom.

    Shocker would've been perfect for the sequel, jamie foxx is such a weird choice.

    he's overrated.

    Mysterio >> electro

    Like I said in the other thread, Jason Mamoa would make an excellent electro. It's an easy role.

    In Ultimate Spidey, is Electro black or are they doing that comic book diversity bullshit, where they're changing nigga's races for the sake of changing nigga's races.

    If they need a more diverse cast, why have Foxx play Tombstone or better yet, do something I've always been a proponent of, create a new character.

    That's an absolute no no in comic book movies bruhs...niggas will not be happy...and that's just cheap directin'...All them villains at their disposal and that make a new one?...Nah man...I'm not sayin' that they should make frame by frame copies (word to Watchmen) but get the characters right...all else can be forgiven

    Na, electro's white or pale skin in the comics which is why I don't understand that shit. They take a good actor and fuck it up by putting him in the wrong role all for the sake of money. This gotta be a hoax, otherwise I won't see this shit.

    It depends my nigga. Unicron and The Fallen were created for Transformers and of course there's everybody's favorite homicidal girlfriend/sidekick:

    When Bruce Timm introduced Harley, niggas were like, "who the fuck is that?" and everybody eventually came to love Harley to the point where she was introduced in the comics. The issue isn't whether a new villan or character should be introduced, but the execution of the introduction.

    The transformer's movies sucked and Michael Bay is a horrible choice as he pays no attention to the source.

    Harley Quinn was introduced in the cartoon but they had the same writers that were partnered with the comics kinda similar to changing Nick Fury to the Sam Jackson image. You just have to have great writers but make sure that it's in sync with the source.

    Venom wont be in till like the 4th movie unless they rush the movies

    Gwen is still alive and Green Lantern hasnt been established yet
  • evoljeanyesevoljeanyes Posts: 3,659 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Y'all niggas is nitpicking on race? Electro is trill...as far as his powers go especially.
  • I don't like when they change the character's race just for diversity sake. I mean if it's the right actor for the job, then I can see it. But Jamie Foxx as Electro? I feel like they reaching.

    Naw, my nigga. Electro is in the mid-to lower tier of the the Spidey's "A," list rogues. I guess if you to compare him to The Batman's Rogue he'd be on par with The Penguin or The Riddler. He debuted in Amazing Spider-Man #9 and he's a strong enough of protagonist to carry a movie assuming it's done properly.

    Mysterio is one of Spidey's Rogues, but not his arch nemesis. His arch nemesis' had been The Green Goblin and for a minute Venom. People would also make an argument for Carnage as being Spidey's main villain for a minute.

    i think the Scorpion would make a good villain. him being sponsored by Jameson would make an ill story

    that's a great choice for a villain. plus the character design would be ill. a scorpion is a deadly arachnid anyway. why didn't they go with him for a villain in the first place. he would be just as agile as spiderman but bigger and gruesome. also it would be a great way to bring j Jonah jameson . I hope they bring back j.k simmons for that role also they should bring somebody else on as Robbie. also the scorpion would be a great way to pick up where they left of with the oscorp /parker/Connors gene/splice experimentation storyline.
