Really? Rhino is nothing but a big dumb brute. Hardly the kind of villain to base a movie around.

Just read the link. Looks like they're going to screw up this franchise with part 2 instead of waiting until part 3.

Two villains? Two female love interests? Jamie Foxx as Electro?

You'd think by now that the studio heads would have
figured out that shoving multiple characters and villains into a movie does not make for a great film (see Spider-Man 3, Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, for starters).

Amazingly, a lot of non-comic book reading people I've talked to about it really seem to like Batman Forever.

Here's how I've always viewed it: when Batman Forever came out, it was horrible. Then Batman and Robin came out--suddenly, Batman Forever doesn't seem as bad of a movie.

That entire franchise was on a downhill slide. The first one was amazing. Batman Returns was good, but still not as good as the first. Batman Forever was bad. And Batman & Robin was TERRIBLE. (It had bat-nipples for crying out loud!)

I knew the Batman series was in trouble from the first tilt of the camera in Batman Forever's first fight scene—that camera tilt was a visual reference to the TV series (and from a director who had told Dennis O'Neil that he wanted to do his [O'Neil's] Batman)! The movie didn't get any better after that, and I never could bring myself to go see Batman and Robin in the theater.

Joel Schumacher is easily the worst thing to happen to Batman—perhaps to comics—since William Dozier.

Ok...we are being subjected to the usual hyperbole here.

First...I am a comic junky and I loved batman Forever. Thought it was great. And, quite frankly, that is the prevailing opinion among people I know. (while that certainly isnt any kind of national referendum, I hate it when, years after a movie is out, people rewrite history and just declare a movie unforgivably bad.)

Also.....movies with multiple heroes/Villains are bad? What?

1) Superman II
2) Batman Returns
3) Batman Begins
4) Dark Knight
5) Avengers


That's without any real serious thought.

Then why are you commenting?

I'll bet my house and my first kid that you will be seeing this movie long before it leaves first run theaters.

As far as OP statement, this is the perfect man for the role of Rhino. He knows the history, is a comic buff. A little make up and green screen and the Rhino should rock in this movie.
Cheers!

Where is my Fables? I need a reality check!

Rhino seems like a curious choice at first but when you think about it he was one of Spider-Man's more recurring foes. Albeit mostly as a pawn of some crime lord but he still popped up frequently.

Maybe they'll do a mash-up like they did with Whiplash in Iron Man 2 and we'll get the Rhinoceros-Beetle! Brilliant, but dull, scientist Aleksie Jenkins creates a mechanized suit of armor mimicking the awesome abilities of that scourge of the insect world - the super scarab Dynastinae! Yowza!

All we need is for Spider-Man 3 to have Kraven, Vulture and Mysterio then number four can be the Revenge of the Sinister Six!

Seriously though, I would love to see Mysterio in a Spider-Man movie. It's a perfect match, Mysterio was a special effects guy after all.

Why are people complaining about jamie Foxx? Don't they know that Jamie Foxx being attached to a movie is a good thing?

I just get exasperated by the comic nerds that refuse to be satsified if a movie isn't exactly like the comic story with actors that loook exactly like the comic characters.

I liked Amazing. I like Andrew Garfield much better than Tobey Maguire. I liked that they brought back the mechanical webbing.

Did I have problems with it? Sure. But I had just as much problems with the Raimi films and I liked those too (except for 3!)

Let's be honest. Electro is a lame villain. Anything they do to change him is a plus in my book.

As for the Rhino thing, I think this is just rumor so far but if they introduce multiple villains I have no problem if it's done well. Spider-Man 3 was not done well. Batman Begins was done well.

The problem I have with some comic book movies is that they stray too far from the original. I understand that you can't take 500 issues of Spider-Man or Action Comics and cram it all into an hour and a half or so of film. If you try that you get the Green Lantern mess. I liked that movie but I didn't LOVE it. I kind of knew what was going on and it was still hard to follow. My girlfriend, non-comic fan, was totally lost. If you try to do too much it's going to seem forced or confusing.

The movie should retain the feel of the comic without changing too much. Example: The Fantastic Four movie tied the origin of Dr. Doom (and they didn't even call him that) with that of the FF. It didn't FEEL right to me. But you take Batman Begins where Bruce Wayne is trained by Ra's al-Ghul - I don't recall that from any comics but it felt like something that was feasible in that mythos.

Another issue is costumes. I guess most actors don't want their faces obscured so they can be more easily recognized or emote better but comic book characters wear costumes! I was actually one of the few people that liked the Daredevil movie but I have to say I was disappointed in the lack of costume for Bullseye.

I realize that the people who make movies don't do it for the average comic book geek such as myself. They're for the teeming masses who don't know Black Canary's secret identity or that the burglar who killed Uncle Ben was just a burglar. Hey that's fine, anything to get my favorite four-color characters on the big screen.

I actually think it's funny. I expect them to change some things for live adaption. I even really dig it when people come up with some clever stuff to get around things. Like the way the new Star Trek spun it's reason for being able to stray from cannon. Though I know many may not agree with me.

When it comes to ASM, I just didn't think the movie was very well done. Pete was kind of anoying, Gwen was meh, and most of the story just seemed to lack something. Just seemed like a Spidey flick with no heart. While I am in no way a Tobby M. fan, waaaaay to sappy, at least those movies seemed to have most of the necessary pieces.

Unless they change cast and directors I'm just not to hyped about this one.
