Will Spidey 3 Suck?

spider-man-3Spider-Man 3 opens on May 4th and of course there is a lot of anticipation around it. I’m even anxious myself to see it… kind of. I’ve loved Spidey since I was a comic book collecting kid. They did a pretty good job on the first two movies until Spidey took off his mask in Spider-Man 2. This one, though, could turn into a convoluted mess with so many villains (3) and new characters being introduced. Sandman is one of the villains and I am wondering whether they could have picked a worse one. Fan-favorite Venom is also in the movie which I think is a great choice. My big question here is whether they will portray Venom as the ruthless, vicious enemy he is in the comics, or sweeten him up for the kiddie movie-goers. Harry Osborn is the last villain as he seeks revenge on Peter/Spidey for killing his father. The trailers have him wearing a rejected Power Rangers costume. Why not just make him the Hobgoblin? I know Spider-Man 3 will at the very least be watchable. I just hope to finally walk out of the theater a fully-satisfied Spidey fan.

    I’m sure I’m not the only one who detests seeing Toby Maguire in this role. I didn’t find him revolting in the first spiderman offense, but the sequel really turned me off. His babyface, his take on the roll, are too immature and unbelievable. I would much rather see a more mature actor in the role – see Christian Bale in the new Batman series. Also – have you watched either the first or second film lately? Neither hold hope very well, especially the first one.
