Spider-Man 4 is dead; Reboot to follow.

movies are cool. here is a place to talk about how cool they are. or maybe how much they suck, sometimes. like that fucking piece of shit 'mac and me'. worst fucking movie ever, a two-hour ad for fucking coca-cola.

Nope. MJ is gone. Apparently her part was pretty small and Marc Webb wanted to focus more on Peter and Gwen, leaving MJ to appear in Spidey 3.
There's also speculation that they could recast MJ for Spidey 3. I wouldn't blame them - the chick they had is a terrible actress. Watch 5 minutes of The Secret Life of the American Teenager. I dare you.

Also, Spidey 3 and 4 have already been announced.

okay, having four villains might not be that big a deal, if they do it the way i had hoped they would in spider-man 3. if they do a batman cold open where he's fighting one or two of them perpetrating a bank heist, it establishes that there are more weirdos in animal-themed costumes out there. as long as they're not integral to the main plot, but just there as glorified set pieces, i think it would work.

but that's probably not what they'll do...

Well, Electro is the main villain.

I don't think they'd cast Paul Giamatti as Rhino if it were a small part.

Norman Osborne won't necessarily be Green Goblin and Harry more than likely be a bad guy for a while yet.

Have Adrain Toomes/Vulture and Felicia Hardy/Black Cat been confirmed?
I thought they were still rumors.

Even if the movie sucked, I thought the way they started Batman Forever en media res, with Two-Face being an established villain on his latest heist, is a tact more superhero movies should try. Do you automatically get every supervillain's full origin story in their first comic book appearance? No. So do it the same way in movies every so often.

You could kinda argue that the Thanos tease takes a slightly different angle on this approach--here's this uber-badass, he's clearly been around a while, and Joe Moviegoer knows jack shit about him. Other than that all the geeks in the theater cheered.

I was watching the commentary on the Amazing Spidey DVD and they made a comment about the last image of the film being an iconic cover image. I thought maybe it was the McFarlane image from issue 301, but it's not exactly the same(never mind the anatomical impossibility of the McFarlanesque contortion). Is there a different cover I'm forgetting? Here's the image.

That didn't give me nerd wood in the same way the X-Men trailer did, but it still looks pretty cool. Loved the Doc Ock and Vulture "cameos". I don't even think I hate the total Rhino design overhaul the way I'm sure plenty of purists will. Have to see it in action more.

Goddamn, between this and X-Men, and The MCU, Marvel fans are fucking spoiled at the cinema. Get your shit together Warner/DC! Or dont. Actually I don't give a shit. Your universe is dead to me.

I'm only worried about character/villain overload.

agreed, though as long as the additional villains aren't given equal screen time and only serve to broaden the 'world'... i'd like to see spidey fighting some random supervillain in a cold-open, putting him away, and never seeing him again in the movie.

It looks like a CGI cotton candy explosion. Is this Spidey's crossover with Speed Racer or some shit?
Shit. I can't think of a good signature.
