Friday Afternoon Fun Post

Given that the first two Spidey flicks were amongst the best superhero movies of all time, there are high hopes for this one.

The new Spider-Man 3 trailer is here.

It looks impressive. Given that the first two Spidey flicks were amongst the best superhero movies of all time, there are high hopes for this one.

The only concern I have is that the film could be doing a “Batman” (i.e., pre-Batman Returns) in the sense that it is featuring three villains: Sandman, Venom and (it would appear) Hobgoblin.

The HD version of the trailer is here.

Smart move, btw, for the marketing people to make the YouTube-like embed of the trailer available.

    RE: the “three villain” concern. Keep in mind that Batman Begins (the greatest superhero movie of all time) also featured three primary villains: Ras al-Ghul, Carmine Falcone, and the Scarecrow. And it still kept the focus on Bruce Wayne where it belonged.

    I’m not worried about Spidey 3. The villains never came close to overshadowing Peter in the first two. I have faith in Sam Raimi.

    Good call on Batman Begins, Alex. A brilliant movie that restored my faith in the Batman franchise. My expectations are high for Spidey 3 as well.
