Bslim: Andrew Garfield was what, forty-nine, when he got cast?


My problem with him was I felt he was too handsome and cool.  I'm not a huge 'in the know' when it comes to Spiderman comics, but I was always of the impression he was just this nerdy kid.  Garfield just seemed too 'cool' to me!  But I didn't HATE his movies (The lizard and electro looked bad, but otherwise, meh, they were fine)

Also, I have no doubts they will all end up in the 3rd Spiderman movie anyway

Because it was animated, it flew completely under the execs radar. Now that it's a thing, they'll be crawling over themselves to fark it up.

God I hope it's as good as the first one was.

He was a good Spider-Man (the constant shiat talking of the bad guys was something I thought Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man missed) but not suited for Peter Parker

Exactly. The same thing that happened with the DCAU. And yet no matter how many bombs WB puts out, they won't just drive a dump trucks full of money up to Paul Dini and Bruce Timm's houses. The DCAU is THE Batman, THE Superman, THE DC superhero every millenial thinks of when they think DC superhero.

I tend to agree and I wish they would have swallowed their pride and did EXACTLY what Marvel did.
Who cares if people say "You copied them!"

I think they should have started with Cyborg, a member of the Justice League I don't think the average person knows about and really built him up.  Then go with an Aquaman or Flash.

And before people jump on me with "Cyborg is lame and no one cares", I'm telling you from a layman's standpoint, I had barely heard the name Ironman, didn't know a thing about him, and assumed he was pretty lame based on things I read up to the movie.

Amy Pascal has been shoving her name all over this one and the next parts. I expect it to fark up at this point.

I've been thinking Bruce Timm has been tanking then on purpose lately  just so he can suck bad enough for the execs to give him the reins

Parker was originally a scrawny high school nerd as created by Steve Ditko.  Then later on, Jazzy Johnny Romita, Jr. took over the art, and Parker got better looking, showed some muscle, lost the glasses, etc.

At the time, most readers were cool with it.  The prevailing attitude seemed to be, "Hey, he's been getting some serious workouts lately, what with web swinging, wall crawling, and fighting villains.  It makes sense that his muscles are developing.  And if his eye muscles are stronger, too, maybe he can pull his eyeballs' lenses into the right shape without glasses."

In any case, he was still favored of Murphy, and most of us didn't begrudge the poor guy an occasional break.

Even when Ditko was drawing him, he was juggling Betty Brant and Liz Allen. He was a "nerd" w/ two hot chicks fighting over him.

Miller confirmed that Spider-Verse's sequel will be October 22

Ugh.  Hurry up guys, seems like our current situation should lend itself to prioritizing and speeding up an animated project

Good point.

But even then, the ol' Parker Hard Luck usually found a way to mess things up for him.
