With The Amazing Spiderman 2 recently hitting theatres and its strong implications for the future of the franchise I thought it a good time to put together my ideal list of contenders to fill out the villain ensemble. There are some pretty obvious choices in here but I do believe there are a couple of names that have yet to be thrown around. In any case, let’s get started (caution: there are big spoilers for the ASM2 so tread lightly). —>
(Scored out of ten; below 5 = not worth seeing, 6 = ok, 7 = good, 8 = great, 9 = fantastic, 10 = next to perfect)
Marc Webb’s second outing behind Sony’s crown jewel definitely lives up to the name. The Amazing Spiderman 2 was just that, amazing. While there were some notable issues ASM proves to be a thoroughly entertaining, emotional, silly, adept world building film all at the same time. Not one to shy away from it’s quirky comic book roots, The Amazing Spiderman 2 does a tremendous job of cementing Spidey as one of the premier superhero franchises on the market and shows that there is plenty of life left in Spiderman’s tank.
The first official screening of The Amazing Spiderman 2 has just finished and press from all over the inter webs have taken to twitter to give their gut reactions. For the most part they seem to have liked the sequel but there are a few negative nancy’s thrown in just to balance things out. I for one tend to side with the optimists. The only negatives I kept hearing about the first Marc Webb Spiderman flick were about the rehashed origin and the ugly Lizard, these 2 things have no bearing on whether or not a film is “good” or not. Check out below for an assortment of reactions and remember to not let it influence your decision to go see it too much. Nobodies opinion should matter more than your own! —>
