Battle Within: The Spider-Man 3 Thread (Spoilers Ahead!)

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by muppetwriter, Jan 19, 2007.

    After bringing up so many threads that mention all sorts of new stuff about Spider-Man 3, I decided to go ahead and start a discussion thread, so any of us can bring up new updates, share ideas of what we think might happen in the third movie or what we look forward to seeing, and a lot of other stuff.

    I start out by mentioning what two news that came up today. The first is the SM3 website that has now been heavily updated. Check it out here:

    http://spiderman3.sonypictures.com/


    The second is what SM3 producer Grant Curtis told SHH! (SuperHero Hype!) about the whole deal with the four villains, which he said (and I quote)....

    And if there are some that are worried about the number of villains in the movie, Curtis also added.....

    And when SHH! asked about the possibility of a Spider-Man 4....

    Whether there might be a fourth movie or not, I still look forward to seeing the third one.:)

    I wonder if this Spidey/Venom "connection" is the same "connection" as in Ultimate Spiderman for DS

    Well, they are following some of the continuity from the "Ultimate" comic books, seeing as how Eddie Brock is being referred to as Eddie Brock, Jr.

    But if you're talking about how Peter Parker and Eddie were childhood friends, whose fathers were involved in the creation of the symbiote costume, then I think so (except for the fathers as scientists part, because the symbiote is coming from outer space in the film).

    well the creation of the suit is kind of a huge part of the ultimate continuity. Seems like the suit origin is more like the animate series.
  5. muppetwriter

    muppetwriter Active Member

    Yeah, that's what they said it will be like.

    John Jameson's supposed to "accidentally" bring the symbiote down to Earth from the moon. But I'm wondering if he'll "accidentally" crash his space shuttle into the Manhattan Bridge like in the animated series (probably not).:)

    I hope not. I'd like them to do the full ultimate story, but I think a movie would be too short for that to be fleshed out with the backstory AND the current story.

    Especially when they have to deal with three villains.:)

    They say the version of Eddie Brock in the movie is an amalgamation of two Eddies (one from the original continuity and the other from the ultimate), so you might see more of the ultimate than the original in the film. The only reference I see from the original is the insignia on his chest, which is based strongly on Todd MacFarlane's artwork from the comic book.

    I believe the insignia on Venom is back in the ultimate comics. I played the ultimate spider-man video game and the story line in the game is in continuity with the comic and in the game is gets the white spider on his chest.

    Spider-Man has actually replaced Star Wars as my all time favorite movie series (outside of the Muppets, of course). I'm not big on comic books anymore, but I love these movies!

    Same here, S.S.:)

    The third film hasn't even come out yet and they're already in talks for the fourth film. I just found out this bit of information a few minutes ago, concerning the screenwriter of the Spider-Man series, David Koepp. This is what SHH! said:

    For those looking forward to the fourth Indiana Jones film, David Koepp is the guy who's writing the script for that one. Ironic, isn't it?:D

    There was an interview with Dylan Baker (a.k.a. "Dr. Curt Conners" from Spider-Man 2) in which he was asked about his role in the third movie. Check it out, he says...

    And when asked about a possibility of seeing his wicked reptilian alter ego, The Lizard, in the possible fourth movie....

    To be honest, that's the biggest reason I would hope for a fourth film, just to see him as that character. I mean, some of us Venom fans already have what we want, seeing the anti-Spidey character on the big screen and in live-action format. But what about the Lizard fans?

    Also....has anyone been catching those new Fruit Roll-Ups commercials?:)

    A while back I heard and a rumor that Chamealon was one of the villians in the film, and part of the story line is that he gets Mary-Jane to fall in love with him. Another rumor I heard was that Mary-Jane dies in this movie. As for Lizard, he is one of my favorite villians (mainly because I like lizards) and I was really dissapointed that he wasn't in the second film. I'm hoping that he's in the forth movie as well.

    I couldn't really picture the Chameleon being in a Spider-Man movie, mostly because he's never really been much of an interesting villain to me. Him seducing Mary Jane does sound like a good storyline though. But I can tell you up front that they won't kill off MJ in this next one, because she's of too much importance to Spidey himself.


    They've just released the website for the Spider-Man 3 video game. Nothing really special on there right now, but they do have blogs and a cool background of the chest area of Spider-Man's red costume that you can turn to black and even morph his insignia.

    No prob. I can't wait to see what the figurines for Sandman and The New Goblin (a.k.a. Harry Osborn) look like.:)

    Two marvelous updates just popped up in the past couple of days.:)

    According to SuperHeroHype!, the third trailer to Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer might be attached to Spider-Man 3 this May. The second will be attached to the movie based on Frank Miller's graphic novel, 300, in March.

    The other bit of news is that some new footage has appeared online. You can see it on either these two links (but the loading time is VERY slow, so take precaution).
