Spiderman 3 was fucking GAY. Problem is Toby Maguire. He's just a fag. It sucks to because the concept of Spiderman is great. When i was a little kid, that was MY Superhero (he and Batman). The movies are cool enough with the special effects, but the storyline in part III, and the Tobey Maguire factor, sucks.
As for he Hulk, George, don't get your hopes up. Ed Norton tried to get OFF the project once he saw the dailies. Went through this huge ordeal because he was so disappointed with how it turned out. Unfortunately for him (who I love as an actor), he is/was contractually bound, so he could not get out of the project. However, a lot of the hollywood rag sites (TMZ, Bastardly, thesuperficial) all talk about how he's not doing any promo for the flick, leaving it all up to Liv Tyler, and trying to put as much distance as possible between himself and the movie.
The problem with Spiderman 3 is the fault of the studio....period. All involved tried to do the best they could, but the studio pushed them all in a direction they did not want to go. The studio knew that the contracts for everybody were up with this last film, Sam Raimi's, Maguire's and Dunst's....Raimi wanted to do the 3rd film with JUST the Sandman and Gobin's son and set up The Lizard before his departure from the series. Many, Many times Raimi said he wanted nothing to do with Venom....but knowing that the contracts would expire, the studio FORCED the Venom aspect onto not only Riami but the actors and everyone involved.
And the movie suffered as a result.....Venom is too large a figure in the SM mythos....he could have carried his own film, when you attempt to squeeze not 1, not 2...but 3 major villians into 1 film....something is going to suffer.
By forcing Sandman, Goblin AND Venom....the writing was compacted to squeeze everything in.....and even the most clueless viewer could see it. The origin of Venom and the black suit was rushed in this film and as a result the series suffers from a VERY WEAK 3rd film.
As for Toby....I myself never had an issue with him as Spiderman....BUT...you will be happy to know the studio is alreay talking about a different actor to play the role for the forth film.
As for the MORON Ed Norton, who I usually like.....he needs to have his head examined. He was upset with the editing of the film....and I admit, while watching the film I did notice two VERY BAD edits. But it's highly unlikely that most viewing audiences will even notice it. A person would really have to be a "student" of film to catch the issues.....which most fans don't look that damn hard at a film.
The huge gross this film is going to make is a testament to how much better of a film this one is than the Ang Lee original....bad edits and all!
The thing about the Hulk, which is unlike other Super hero movies...is that the actor playing Bruce Banner has ZERO connection to the Hulk who at his full form is CGI. Spiderman, Batman, Superman, Ironman.....all these alter ego's are connected to the hero in a very close personal way...the same cannot be said of the Hulk.
SO.....by acting like a complete dick, he will basically fuck himself out of a lucrative sequel...and leave the door open for a 3rd actor in as many films to play Banner...and unlike other hero flicks....NOBODY will give a shit. If I were Marvel I'd be telling Norton to suck a big fat one.....and get ready to bankroll the next one without his ass.
