Also Spidfer man 4 does not need a n new director a reboot or a new cast. It just bnewesd to go back to the basics that maede the first two great. A villain who was a father figure to Peter Parker. Doc/Connor/ The Lizard. Focus on his relationships with Mary Jane and Harry Osborn. I think the probvlem with the third film wasn't that they were given too much attention but too little. The incesanrt fight scenes with three or more villains left so little room to develop the Mary Jane and Harry Osbcorne stuff that it all seemed rushed and slop. Mary Jane seemed to have little or no reason for being so angry at Peter at the beginning of the film, there seemed to be no reason at all why the Butler waited so long to tell Harry the truth about how his father died. And so the Harry resolution was unsatifying and the whole MJ/Peter fight seemed tacked on. A little more time on those elements and they would have felt really earned. And been really earned.

Yeah, I don't want a reboot either...that's really all there is to say on the matter, so here's something else...since J. Jonah was brought up, just have to say, possibly my favorite J. Jonah and Spidey moment was in Back in Black when Spidey goads J. Jonah into throwing some punches, and all the while Peter's getting pics of it...then gives J. Jonah the film and tells him that he's got his story now, about how the righteous J. Jonah gave Spiderman the beat down he deserves...for those of you not following along, this takes place during Civil War, when Spidey's secret identity was made common knowledge, and J. Jonah was in the process of suing him.

Don't want to see a reboot either.  I was hoping that they could wipe Spiderman 3 from existence, and just pick up where 2 left off.  Want to see the Lizard as the main villain, maybe there can be a lesser villain to open the movie like the Shocker or Rhino.

I would also like to see a cameo of another hero in the movie as well.  Especially if it is Black Cat.  Could be a nice lead in to Spiderman 5 especially if it takes place at the end of the movie.

Maybe Spider-Man doesn't need a reboot yet, but if and when it is done, I wouldn't mind an origin retread and I'll tell you why.  When I saw the first movie, I wanted to see the iconic scene where Pete almost gets hit by a car and he leaps out of the way and clings to the building and crushes the pipe.  I was so disappointed that didn't happen and dammit, I want to see it!

I guess one reason why I don't want a full on reboot is because I honestly didn't think that Spiderman 3 was as bad as everybody makes it out to be...granted, it wasn't nearly as great as the first two, but I didn't mind it.  I understand why everybody hates it, as I've been told MANY times about the whys and the parts that annoy the ever loving piss out of them...I guess the cheesiness in the movie that every saw as being stupid, I saw as Sam Raimi getting back to his B movie roots a little bit.

I wonder if they tend to kill villains off to lessen the temptation to bring them back for the next movie? The obstacles are hardly insurmountable - by comic book standards, for example, or even MOVIE standards, Doc Ock's death in SPIDERMAN 2 could easily be "written around" - but I have always suspected it was done to make it a BIT harder to bring the villains back...

Definately introduce the Black Cat in the next Spiderman movie. Maybe have her be the villian for about half of it. She loves Spider-man but hates Peter Parker. Could have some fun moments on film. I liked the 90s cartoon series of Spider-man, and they explored that alittle bit. But the comics even had Peter reveal his identity too her when he had the black spider-man outfit.

Ten minutes?  Five minutes?  Again, too long.  The origin could be covered in the title sequence.

I can understand Shadowprime why they kill the villain, because then fans would want to see them again and the actor may not want to do the character again.

However, in nearly all the superhero films, the villains are always killed. I'm just saying that it's time to break "tradition" and have the villains go to jail. It just gets boring to see them get killed off all the time.

Also, I can see how you can break back Dr. Octopus too. Just have him wash up on the shore with little to no memory of his last fight with Spidey. That way, Peter's secret is safe.

On the topic of killing villains at the end of superhero movies, does anybody find it ironic that The Joker lived at the end of The Dark Knight?
