“The Emotional Spider-Man 2”

OR, “You’ll Believe a (Spider-)Man Can Cry!”

Spoilers Ensue. Please don’t give me crap if you read the article but didn’t want to be spoiled. Only read if you’ve seen the movie or give zero fucks.

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” Opened this past weekend to a strong, but hardly record-breaking, 92 million dollars. On Thursday, three of the TFP Fangirls went to go see it together, enthused for another Marvel movie, especially after the awesomeness that was “Captain America: the Winter Soldier.”

We walked out a bit… confused.

Spider-Man movies, including the Tobey Maguire films of yore, have always been entertaining, at least. Andrew Garfield’s second appearance as the Web Head was not different. In fact, his Peter Parker and Spidey gave some particularly entertaining one-liners, comebacks, and banter.

But he was also batshit crazy.

‘Sinister Six’ Movie Might Not Be a Traditional Team-Up


The Sinister Six movie might not be a tradition villain team up. Ever since Sony announced that they are going to make more Spider-Man related movies, everyone has been wondering how they were going to do a Sinister Six movie.

“When you translate comic to film the word ‘classic’ means the first fifty issues. Because after that we all made changes; changes that had to do with science-fiction turning into science. I think just the need to move this world forward.”

“So, of course we’ll make adaptations about these guys and what was their motivations because many of them have multiple motivations. It depends, is it ultimate Spider-Man? Is it Spider-Man? Is it some three-piece issue that takes them to space? We have a bigger responsibility to represent the character of the villain as it was conceived, because that way it will survive the test of time. All the rest… that’s a movie. What an opportunity to make — can you imagine seeing Paul Giamatti in a leather suit? I think they would have killed us. They gave us a hard time with the Lizard.”

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 already has Rhino, Electro and Green Goblin in movie. We have been teased with Doc Ock’s arms and Vulture’s wings. Granted the original team was Doc Ock, Vulture, Electro, Mysterio, Sandman, and Kraven the Hunter. Members of the team have changed over time. If they are going with a slightly different approach then they might change who the members of the team are.

Personally I don’t think it will make a difference if they don’t use all the original members and change some of them up. It would make more sense for them to use the villains that they have already established to continue the story line.  Us fans we do get crazy about these things and wanting everything to be true to the original story, I have been like that before.  I know there will be fans out there who want the original group of villains.

Should they stick with the original members or will changing some of the members of the Sinister Six not really matter?
