Yeah, I've basically seen the whole movie in commercials. The new X-men movie is getting that way too. And of course if you don't see one of these comic book movie on its opening weekend you are immediately shown spoilers on your newsfeeds and other places. Since the new Captain America movie opened everywhere but the US weeks before it opened here, Yahoo was already putting spoilers on it's main page in the headlines before the movie opened. It's getting to be re-got-damn-diculous.

I think that's the point this time around since they're probably going to do the Sinister Six in the next one.

They did the same thing with Star Wars Episode III.  The only things they didn't reveal was Samuel L. Jackson had millions on volts coursing through his body, and Alderran.

My thinking is this:

Act 1: Rhino fight. It will be a throwaway fight to let the audience know how spiderman is doing.

Act 2: lead up to Electro while parker also finds out more about his past. This also introduces harry Osborn.

Act 3: Electro fight. Aftermath being the introduction of the green goblin and setting him up for next movie.

It's like the trailers for Transcendence. We know the premise (Johnny Depp's character shot by a member of an anti-tech group, radioactive shrapnel, he dies in meatspace, comes back in the computer, is it him or not?) but anyone familiar with the writings of Ray Kurzweil (tech singularity) and Eric Drexler (nanotech uses and predictions) know what's happening fir the rest of the film.

Depp comes back as nanobots and reshapes the whole world (seen in the solar panel scenes, the man changed by nanobots that has the silver in his eyes, bionic ability as a man jumps onto the back of a pick-up at speed). You can't stop an army of robotic ants when they're all controlled by a genius mind operating at a speed faster than a normal brain can process information and react (Lawnmower Man, but with a better running start), can duplicate very quickly, and can turn anything into more of itself. But people that want to be in the new future are either uploaded to a perfect cyber world (The Matrix) or exist in a post-scarcity world where things can be built on the molecular level which means there's no such thing as pollution or need ...even the excess carbon in the air is removed and used to maintain the nanotech infrastructure (Radical Abundance: How a Revolution in Nanotechnology Will Change Civilization by Drexler).

I don't watch tv or it's commercials. I have a computer.
However, even the previews at the movies are getting carried away with this.

My thinking is that perhaps this is after the Electro fight and Green Goblin beats the crap out of him and leaves him. Keep in mind, this is me trying to make a good movie out of the previews I have seen and how I think it will actually not be that great of a movie.

I think he made a really good Peter Parker (3rd movie doesn't exist). Sadly, I don't think the writing was up to par for the actual Spider-Man character in those movies.

The first (recent) Spiderman movie had about 30 minutes worth of footage from commercials that someone pieced together to essentially watch the movie. And the best part is, it isn't illegal, so fark off MPAA.

No, you are not the only one who feels that way.


Why have time for real dialogue, nothing but one liners and short dream sequences for me.

Don't think they are doing that at all.

They show spidey and Goblin in the same shot at one point  and non-suited Rhino shooting at him.

Also how is this movie not out yet? I swear I started seeing full trailers back in January... and the "final" trailer back in february...

Maybe after the first Rhino fight the guy is rescued by Harry Osborn and later shows up at the end to team up on Spidey?

The more you guys tell me about this movie the more it sounds like it is a repeat of Spider 3.

Will never happen. At this point Sony (Spidey) and FOX (X-dudes and F4) keep making shiat movies as a big FU to Marvel/Disney. But at least M/D has Punisher, Daredevil and Ghostrider back.

They're only doing it for the rights/money.

They don't want to surrender the property back to Marvel so they have to keep churning them out. Since the last series (Toby) kinda evaporated with the third movie and all of the actors moved on (thankfully - Toby was great in Gatsby) they had to start all over.

Same for X-Men.

Same for Fantastic Four.

All of these could be amazing additions to the current Marvel Cinematic Universe but NOOOOOO. The studio's iron grip on the the properties pretty much nerfs that possibility. Dicks.

At least they found a way around the issue with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch (much better interpretations compared to the goofy nonsense that DoFP is putting onscreen.)

Sony will keep doing them because they HAVE TO make a Spider-Man movie every seven years to hang onto the film rights, and so they're making BAD Spider-Man movies and relying on the character's popularity to make money from it, despite the fact that Garfield's a TERRIBLE Peter Parker, the story is a complete mess (and an insulting one, too), and they have to "re-imagine" every single character to fit some jackoff's vision and Sony's marketing jerks' ideas.

If people would just stop paying to see Sony's version of Spider-Man, we MIGHT have a chance of them eventually giving up, skipping the required "film every seven years", and seeing Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe where he belongs.
 
2014-04-15 04:34:17 PM  
They did this with the first one too.   I remember some guy edited all the spots, trailers, and specials to basically show the whole movie before it was released.  Pretty sure I saw it here on fark.

He's an asshole throughout the movie. He comes off as a complete douchebag, not a nice guy nerd like Parker. He would have been a better 1960s Flash Thompson than any version of Peter Parker.

I totally disagree. X2 was a poorly-acted mess. Spider-Man 2 was better, but it was full of awful Sony decisions like having Pete pull off his mask every chance he could get, and killing off Ock by the film's end. The train scene makes me cringe every time because it's so poorly written and obviously designed to give Tobey more face-time than Spider-Man.

That is exactly what I was gonna say.

I hated Tobey spider man because it felt like a silver age comic. Blech! If you want a silver age spider man there is plenty of stuff to watch and read.

Let someone else's vision of the character be made and enjoyed.

On the other hand neither X2 nor spidey 2 had mickey rourke so that is a huge plus.

Also I am glad marvel doesn't have access to those characeter. Since for the most part it forced them to make better movies. I mean Cap or Thor didnt have anything close to the fan base wolverine did,so to sell tickets they had to make better movies.

Plus if xmen were part of the mcu how would you explain why no adult mutants helped when aliens tried to invade new york?

I thought the first reboot AS-M was ok. I didn't even care enough to Redbox it, though, which is how I feel about this one.

But, I didn't care for the Maguire ones, either. I love the idea of Spiderman, but I'm pretty meh on the way he's actually been presented.

Also sucks to watch the (kinda crappy) Agents of Shield show where they basically told you the entire plot of the Captain America movie.
