I never liked the Ultimates...did anyone really like the Ultimates?

 

No. But what are you saying? Is Electro blue in the Ultimate universe? I honestly don't know. I enjoyed Avengers with black Nick Fury....

 

Still, he's looking a bit like the Arnold Mistuh Freeze here. I'll have to see the rest of him to judge.

I'm sure in the ultimates universe Electro is still as lame as Sandman.......I guess the giant yellow mask would be kind of bothersome when your trying not to get your A%$ kicked by Spiderman...........can they use some cooler villians, or even add Punisher or Daredevil for some kinda excitement factor? I dunno why I'm complainin, I never saw the Amazing Spidermin, I feel bad too, cause Starz network was free last weekend and I didn't have the urge to watch it on Demand for free.

Then they turn around and, by virtue of casting, rewriting, and re-designing, make the character as different from the source material as humanly possible.

 

 

That's not really true. Not in 90% of the cases.

 

They LOOK different sometimes. Some more than others. I've said this before that these films are "based on" the comics. "Based on" does not mean "you will get a carbon copy of the classic outfit on the big screen". A lot of fans don't get that, I think. No one really expected this guy to be in a lightning bolt mask. Did you want green leather? How many times has that been done? Electro is a guy you can take a chance on visually, because he's Electro. The source material (ie, WHO this guy is, WHAT his roll is in the Spidey mythos) will likely be intact.

WHAT??? You mean I missed Sparticus when I could have been watching FREE??? Dang....gotta wait for DVD again, I guess :(

 

 

haha yup I did watch a few episodes of ole Spart's, its definitely a different show (Heston is prolly turning over in his casket w/his cold dead hands on his rifles(wait is he dead yet?)) when they're not threatening, raping, arguing, fighting or F-ing the characters are usually bathed in blood like its a costume design. I guess crimson was the in-style color of the day, and no one in the entire show suffers from any STD's ever or looks like they aren't bothered by the smells of the day.......bottom line is you'll need a bath after watching, who says Starz network is square...

:D Yep... and in the days long before dental hygiene, they all had perfect teeth!!! I still love that show, though.

 

OK, enough hijacking my own topic.

seriously... I would have taken the green suit with yellow lightning bolts

 

 

uhhh. no.

 

BUT, I am sure we can all find hundreds of fan-made Spiderman costumes that look terrible too. And look at how well that translated to the big screen.

 

Spiderman's costumes in his movies look the best out of any comic-movie character, by far.

 

so I am certain that if Spidey's bright red/blue costume can work in a movie, than so can ANY other costume

looks like crap but i knew that allready when foxx came on board where they were headed. here we have a character that has a legacy of soon 50 years. electro was one of the first spidey villains ever and one of the most reconized until now. is he a big shot? to me yes because he had some awesome stories over the years. maybe he isn't as world menacing as thanos but one of the best villains in the spidey universe. taking electro from that stupid ultimate verse is just beyond me because that is just a phase and will dissapear soon just like 2099 and we will be stuck with this stupid blue men group electro for ever. if they want to appeal a bigger audience just by taking the ultimate version doesn't actually matter because the wider audience doesn't really care if he is blue, green, red or yellow but at least please the once who are fans for so manny years because thats the ones who will watch this more then once if they get what they want. foxx is a terrific actor to me and he will deliver but to me it will always be wrong. same as the missing family for curt connors in the first one or the missing coat and pants. he looks like huge dinosaur and that will always bother me. power rangers green goblin. snow board new goblin, skinny eddie brock, emo peter parker. that will always come up as the worst descisions in comic movie history. allthough well played by the actors it doesn't matter it still looks wrong somehow. change is a must in these movie to make them more real i get that but would thor look good with black hair? would captain america look good with in green and yellow, would black widow look good in white? these are some things they shouldn't touch and leave it as is. the ears on abomination anyone? what bother me even more is that he will turn blue in the actual comic now just because he is like this in the movies.

Yeah, he blows...hard.

 

Of course, the first movie kinda blows, so I dunno what I was looking for...mediocrity? Isnt that the best we hope for now in superhero movies? or was it movies in general?

 

 

check the new superman trailer, it gives a little hope :-D

 

as for the first amazing spider-man, i enjoyed it and it really has some great moments. garfield is way better as peter then tobey. they should have skipped another origin and focus on conners a little bit more. if they put gwen or mary jane up there to be the damsel it's just the same to me. now if they would put connors family up there who gets attacked by the lizard that brings more drama to it then gwen or mary jane. i loved the scenes with uncle ben but that could have been great flashbacks.

THIS right here is what I'm talking about. This Spidey suit. I was pretty happy with the Rami Spidey suit, but they've actually managed to make it MORE comic accurate that it already was. Look at the eyes on the mask, the colors. Perfect! I actually didn't think we'd see a Spidey suit like this on screen in the modern age.

 

I'm not one of those who demand 100% comic accurate suits in all superhero movies. If the movie takes some liberties, fine. It can still be good. But when they stay THIS close to the classic version, that's also something that deserves some appreciation. This suit looks like something drawn by Romita, McFarlaine, or Bagley. Just a clean, classic look.

 

And where are the people judging this movie based on THIS costume? What I mean is, in the past (with this Spidey movie and nearly every other super hero flick) when a fanboy saw a movie suit that wasn't the same as what they knew from the comics, the movie was already judged! It was doomed to suck because the evil producers weren't staying true to the source material. One hero's boots weren't the same as in the comics. Judged! Another hero wore black instead of yellow. Judged! So if fanboys can do that, then, by the same token, shouldn't ASM 2 already be the best superhero movie ever? Why doesn't everyone have 5 tickets reserved already?

 

Sorry, that last paragraph was sarcasm--sort of. But I stand by the first two!
