5 Reasons Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bad idea

Feb 12 // Nick Valdez
Marvel's Films are Kind of Bland  As much as folks disliked The Amazing Spider-Man 2, I really enjoyed how many risks it took. It was messy and chocked full of half baked ideas, but it was all full of the humor and cheese that I've been wanting out of the Spider-Man movies for years (To be fair, the Raimi movies were full of this awesomeness too). Marvel's films don't really have that same charm. Having the films relate to one another is a blessing and a curse. It's great to have the connectivity, but it's at the expense of each film's uniqueness. Even their weirdest film, Guardians of the Galaxy, still has to reign in its eccentricity with a by-the-numbers plot and generic framework in order to align itself with the other films. It's like there's a sense of restraint on everything, and the loss of creativity is leading to the "Marvel fatigue" a lot of moviegoers are succumbing too.  When Spider-Man joins up, there's a good chance we won't get the crazy Spider-Man that shoots a mini web hand to save his girlfriend, speaks through a megaphone for some reason, and is full of the quips and quirks that Tony Stark already does for the Marvel films.  It's Hard Imagining a Better Peter Parker than Andrew Garfield Casting Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone was the best decision Sony will ever make. Their natural chemistry (and great direction from Marc Webb) helped anchor the two films. And while I agree that he may have been "too cool" of a Peter Parker, Garfield nailed everything else. His awkward, stuttering delivery as Parker was great especially when he shed it under the mask. He may not have written those Spidey quips himself, but a lot of them wouldn't have worked without his great delivery. A sarcastic tone couple with a Spider-Mouth only a mother could love, he was kind of perfect. Shame he's getting the boot.  We're Getting Another Origin Story As much as I want a different kind of origin story, it's still another origin story. Since reboots usually have to start from the beginning, I would've been fine had we at least been given a different character (which is why I'm pushing for Miles Morales so much), but looking at Sony's current prospects (who are both young and white), we're getting another Peter Parker who's in high school. As we can tell from The Amazing Spider-Man's overall box office performance, audiences are getting tired of being told the same story over and over. They're getting smarter, too. Another Spider-Man? Then again, none of this could matter since there's a possibility he's getting shoved into the worst story ever.  The Civil War Storyline is Pretty Dumb Multiple sources have confirmed (or at least what the Internet considers as confirmed) that Spider-Man's first Marvel movie appearance will be in Captain America: Civil War. But that story itself is kind of the worst. I think folks are more in love with the core concept (Captain America and Iron Man fight each other) than the actual story. Sure Spider-Man is a major part of the event, but his involvement in the story is also what sent Marvel fans into a huge, years long huff and eventually led to Marvel's version of the devil taking away his long time marriage to Mary Jane. You see Spider-Man reveals his identity as a way of showing support for Superhero Registration, but it's also at the expense of his own intelligence. The law only pushed for regulation and not full blown identity reveals. Also in the Civil War comic, a robot Thor kills a giant Black man.  What I mean to say is, Civil War just better be in name only. We don't need a huge film where characters just make decisions based on what the companies want rather than have them feel organic. Just because the films are acting like comic books, doesn't mean they should succumb to the same pitfalls. These movies are hard to follow enough as it is, so they shouldn't lump Spider-Man in that mess. His franchise has its own problems.  Sony is Still Pulling the Strings At the end of the day, it's still Sony making the final decision. Rather than a full on partnership, it's like Sony is lending out its characters in exchange for some of Marvel's stuff and a unified plan. Sony still has plans to release its Sinister Six and all female Spider team film, but is nixing Amazing Spider-Man 3. But do you realize how weird that is? If they're going to start with a fresh new take on the universe, why not just axe all of those things completely? And that's one of the many weird predicaments Sony has already put itself in just days after the deal was announced. Marvel may get to use the character sometimes (although we won't know in what capacity until much, much later), but the Spider-Man films are still in the same hands. Let's hope they're capable ones.  But hey this is, once again, a guy just yelling in the dark. It's far too early to see the true effects/ramifications of this business deal. And Marvel and Sony will always make decisions based on what's good for business instead of what some Spider-Nerd like me says. I will admit this, however. This news has me more interested in Marvel's 20 year plan than anything they've ever announced. I was growing tired of superhero films and now look what's happened! I'm writing about comic books on the internet! Look ma! Look at your boy and be proud!  What do you think Flixist Community? Spider-Man or Spider-Meh?

5 Reasons Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a good idea

Feb 11 // Nick Valdez
[embed]218932:42204:0[/embed] Marvel Probably Knows What to do With Spider-Man I may be one of the few Spider-Fans who actually enjoyed The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but even I'll admit it was a bit messy. Clouded with all sorts of open threads and ideas, it really reeked of Sony's desperation to turn a singular property into a massive set of films like Marvel has. And even after the film, Sony's plans were completely up in the air. Rumors of an Aunt May origin story, an all female Spider character team up (which is something I hope still happens regardless) with the best title (Glass Ceiling), and all sorts of complete shots in the dark. But compare that to Marvel's extensive "Phase" plans, Marvel obviously knows what it *wants* to do.  Given that they've bumped their own schedule to work his adventures into the universe, there's a good chance that there's a plan in place. But Marvel's not exactly the end all, be all either. There's no guarantee that their plan to work Spider-Man into a few films will work either, but at least it's more concrete than say an all villain team up movie featuring Paul Giamatti. But it's still up to Sony in the end.  Miles Morales, Miles Morales, Miles Morales If you're scrounging through the internet for more on this deal, then there's a good chance you've heard of Miles Morales. Morales is the Spider-Man in the Ultimate Spider-Man line of comics, an alternate comic universe featuring more streamlined origins for newer readers which Marvel is planning to integrate into the mainline series' later this year with their Secret Wars event. Why is he great? Taking over for Peter Parker after his death, Miles is a half Black/Latino youth who gains powers in basically the same way Peter does. But he's a lot more conflicted about it, and his guilt/anxiety makes for some great reads.  If they absolutely need a new Spider-Man, this could be the hugest step forward for everyone. First of all, Spider-Man would be in an Avengers film (which is what most kids and half of Google's photoshops have dreamed up anyway) and secondly, it'd be nice for more kids to have someone onscreen to relate to. We already have Samuel L. Jackson, Don Cheadle, Anthony Mackie, and  Chadwick Boseman (who's going to be the film's Black Panther), but what harm could come from even more diversity?  We Won't Get The Same Origin Story If we absolutely need to get another origin story (let's face it, it's gonna happen), if it's a brand new character then we won't get the same one. Besides there are quite a few interesting ways Sony/Marvel can go about this. They could either establish a new origin in a solo movie, set Spider-Man up as an already existing thing in whatever cameo role he gets in the Marvel films (so Sony has time to break down what they want to keep from The Amazing Spider-Man films rather than get rid of it all), or just hilariously keep Amazing Spider-Man stuff anyway.  At least we'll be introduced to a new Spider-Man in a new way. But I hope they go The Hulk route and just put the entire origin in the opening credits. Everyone already knows how Peter Parker (or whoever) became Spider-Man, but we need to know why we should care about Marvel Cinematic Universe's Spider-Man. New origin, new focus, same Uncle Ben death probably (but hopefully not). Or keep his identity a secret until the solo film or something.  People Will Stop Asking For It I've never been fond of the comment "Give Spidey to Marvel" when talking about The Amazing Spider-Man, so I'm glad it'll be a thing of the past. But in all seriousness, it'll mean far less confusion for the general audience. Which most likely isn't helped by the Marvel credit tag on Sony's films, most people probably wonder why Spider-Man hasn't shown up in say, Iron Man 3 or something. At least now, it'll be easier to explain to folks. I'll admit this isn't best reason to root for Spidey in the Marvel Universe, but hey I'll take any little step forward I can get at this point.   Marvel and Sony's Characters Mixing Will Make the Universe Better Overall With as big and convoluted Marvel's films are going to become, and with as many superhero films we're getting, the less confusion the better. With a bigger universe where anyone could show up in anything (Maybe Venom fights The Hulk or something), the smaller heroes will shine. I'm super excited for Spider-Man characters like The Kingpin, who could potentially make trouble in the Netflix series (like Daredevil) and then seamlessly pop up in the main Spider-Man films.  Sony also won't have to strain themselves to create a Spider-Man universe from one character. With license to use Marvel's smaller characters (I'm not sure if the bigwigs will come to play every time), there's room to breathe and it'll be easier to digest. But I'm hoping that's part of the plan. Don't forget the Netflix series' are a viable option, Sony!   At the end of the day, I'm just a guy yelling into the air. I'm glad Sony and Marvel both like money, and they'll be getting more from me pretty soon. As someone who's interest in Marvel's films has waned, this is the most excited I've been in a long time. What about you all, Flixist community? Yay or nay?

Sony's Spider-Man officially joining Marvel cinematic universe

Feb 09 // Nick Valdez
SONY PICTURES ENTERTAINMENT BRINGS MARVEL STUDIOS INTO THE AMAZING WORLD OF SPIDER-MAN New Spider-Man Will Appear First in an Upcoming Marvel Film Within Marvel’s Cinematic Universe Marvel's Kevin Feige to Produce Next Installment of the Spider-Man Franchise with Amy Pascal (Culver City, California, and Burbank, California February 09, 2015) – Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marvel Studios announced today that Sony is bringing Marvel into the amazing world of Spider-Man.  Under the deal, the new Spider-Man will first appear in a Marvel film from Marvel's Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, in a film that will be co-produced by Kevin Feige and his expert team at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. Together, they will collaborate on a new creative direction for the web slinger. Sony Pictures will continue to finance, distribute, own and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films. Marvel and Sony Pictures are also exploring opportunities to integrate characters from the MCU into future Spider-Man films. The new relationship follows a decade of speculation among fans about whether Spider-Man – who has always been an integral and important part of the larger Marvel Universe in the comic books – could become part of the Marvel Universe on the big screen. Spider-Man has more than 50 years of history in Marvel's world, and with this deal, fans will be able to experience Spider-Man taking his rightful place among other Super Heroes in the MCU. Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company said: "Spider-Man is one of Marvel's great characters, beloved around the world. We're thrilled to work with Sony Pictures to bring the iconic web-slinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which opens up fantastic new opportunities for storytelling and franchise building." "We always want to collaborate with the best and most successful filmmakers to grow our franchises and develop our characters. Marvel, Kevin Feige and Amy, who helped orchestrate this deal, are the perfect team to help produce the next chapter of Spider-Man," said Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment. "This is the right decision for the franchise, for our business, for Marvel, and for the fans." "Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios share a love for the characters in the Spider-Man universe and have a long, successful history of working together. This new level of collaboration is the perfect way to take Peter Parker's story into the future," added Doug Belgrad, president, Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group. "I am thrilled to team with my friends at Sony Pictures along with Amy Pascal to produce the next Spider-Man movie," said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. "Amy has been deeply involved in the realization on film of one of the world’s most beloved characters. Marvel's involvement will hopefully deliver the creative continuity and authenticity that fans demand from the MCU. I am equally excited for the opportunity to have Spider-Man appear in the MCU, something which both we at Marvel, and fans alike, have been looking forward to for years." Spider-Man, embraced all over the world, is the most successful franchise in the history of Sony Pictures, with the five films having taken in more than $4 billion worldwide.

Flixist Community Discusses: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

May 08 // Nick Valdez
Here are a few comments from community members who really liked the film!  carg0: Easily the best superhero movie to date, hands down. Chad Almasy: Surprisingly enjoyable. I'm glad I watched it. Scissors (who wrote a much more compelling case than I could do justice, which you can read here):  I loved it. It's my favorite superhero movie of all time, and I've seen pretty much all the ones made in the last 10 years. This movie has heart, yes it's imperfect and I could dissect what's wrong with it, but I don't care. When it delivered, it delivered. I was unsatisfied with the previous trilogy, but the 2 ASM films are telling the Spider-Man story I want told. I always liked the Spidey stories that focused more on the kid behind the mask, and that's why I'm loving these films. Haters be damned, I loved it and I don't care if so many others hated it. And now community members who believe Amazing Spider-Man 2 has too many underdeveloped villains and ideas, but is okay in some areas! Fengor (who also linked to this video review):  Call me when Spider-Man inadvertently breaks Gwen Stacy's neck and kills her. I mean let's face it, the girl is all but marked for death. On a less grim note. The problem I think stems from everyone now wanting to emulate the Avengers movie-universe, and from [the review's] description it sounds like Sony is just checking off boxes as they copy the formula. Jordan Mann:  In this movie's defense, it handled multiple villains considerably better than Spider-Man 3 did [and on the scenes with Peter's parents] Those scenes might have been ok if they went somewhere. But in the end they just added a small amount of exposition as to why Harry was going to turn crazy. Which didn't really warrant all the time spent on them. @VladZhao:  Electro was a different character after the accident and had no real reason to hate Spider-Man. DeHaan was really good. @DaddyBoJangles: Should have been Spider-Man vs. a more fleshed out Harry. Electro was unneeded, only provided some decent action scenes. Nick Valdez (from our review): The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ultimately suffers from franchise syndrome. As it seems intent to focus on the future, we don't get quite a fulfilling present. There's kooky fun to be had, but we're never given enough time to enjoy it before we're given more information about future movies. In fact if you took all of those extra scenes out (and believe me, they are extra), we'd have the best Spider-Man film, hands down. I really loved everything else, so I wish someone would have reigned it in a bit.  Matthew Razak (Flixist Editor-in-Chief/Cool Guy):  I felt it really suffered with the too many villains aspect once again, despite Rhino being a complete one off. They lost a lot of traction by shoving Goblin into the background for the whole Electro thing and really were far too desperate to cram in the set up for the Sinister Six. That being said I liked Garfield way more as Spider-Man this time around. His Peter Parker is still a bit too cool for me, and kind of a dick, but Spidey was way better. I wish they had delayed the Gwen Stacey conclusion a bit more as well. I think I enjoyed this one as a piece of action better than the first, but it definitely had its holes and the screenplay was a serious clunker. Webb's action direction came a long way, though. Some really cool stuff. Finally, here are community members who outright HATED it, but they all have compelling reasons as to why! @wlatham92:  Garbage...A step above the emo Peter Parker dance scene from Spider-Man 3 but not much higher. protoknuckles:  I didn't like it because the plot jumped all over the place, the pacing was off, and the focus on Peter's parents was boring Anime Dad:  Amazing Spidermess 2 is an absolute mess of a film. It's not cohesive, it's poorly scripted and the soundtrack is one of the most weirdly inappropriate things I've ever heard. I thought Electro was called that because he controlled electricity not because he controlled Electronic music. Also, we have Paul Giamatti with a performance so phoned in he had to get a contract from AT&T. Don't get me started on Ghost Dad. Also, what the hell was with Stan Lee's cameo, it was dreadful! So, where does that leave us? By reading all of your opinions, it seems that the more polarizing aspects of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 (the multiple villains, scenes of Peter's parents, most of the extra stuff) seem to turn people off so much, they don't enjoy anything at all. And that's completely understandable.  You all point out some very poignant flaws. While I didn't have a problem with Electro himself (since Jamie Foxx seemed to be the one person in the film who truly cared about what he was doing, let's be real), it's true that he completely stands out from the rest of the film. With the different focuses on Electro and Green Goblin, it's like two movies were hastily put together. And that's on top of all of the alluding to future films! That seems to be the root of everyone's complaints. Amazing Spider-Man 2's mismanagement of certain ideas completely ruined people's view toward the film altogether.  It all just comes down to how much we're willing to forgive for the sake of some goofball fun. I mean, it looks like we wouldn't even have that fun if we're thrown off by so much mess.  What did you think of The Amazing Spider-Man 2? Did you like our first Flixist Community Discusses?

Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

May 02 // Nick Valdez
[embed]217698:41489:0[/embed] The Amazing Spider-Man 2Director: Marc WebbRelease Date: May 2, 2014Rating: PG-13 The Amazing Spider-Man 2 takes place several years after the first film with Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) getting ready to graduate high school. Spider-Man is a better known hero across New York, and has earned himself a few fans. One in particular, Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx), was saved one day and became a superfan overnight. After an accident gives Max electric powers, he dubs himself "Electro" and threatens to destroy New York. While all of this is going on, Harry Osborn (Dan DeHaan) returns home to run Oscorp after the death of his father, and is looking for a cure to a genetic disease.  Since Raimi's original Spider-Man trilogy, many folks have been aware of the "too many villains" problem most superhero sequels face. When you pack a bunch of enemies into a film, none of those characters are given room to grow and breathe. ASM 2 has an even more egregious problem than that: too many ideas. It's trying to shove in so many characters, so many nods to the comics, and so many nods to future films, that most of the stuff falls flat for the general audience. There are periods of drought in the film that feel like characters spouting exposition and story when they should be just talking to each other like regular folks. But when the ideas stick the landing, it works.  For those concerned having three bad guys wouldn't work, no need to worry. Although the film clocks in over two and half hours to give each of these bad guys reason to exist, having them around is pretty fun. The villains are more sympathetic this time around, so you're surprisingly rooting for them too. While this is great for the future villain film Sony has planned, this is awful for now. Spider-Man is more of a jerk than ever. But it sort of works in a heavyhanded fashion as Spider-Man inadvertently creates his own enemies. Amazing Spider-Man 2 is amazingly quirky, and incredibly divisive. It has a tone that's going to throw a lot of folks off. It's muddily delivered as you get the sense that ASM 2 doesn't know if it wants itself to be taken seriously but, when it commits to the zanier elements of the comics, there's definitely a good amount of fun here.  First of all, the action is well made and well delivered. Other than a harshly shaky opening scene, the action (and web slingling) is fluid, dynamic, and easy to follow. There's a bit too much slow motion, but ASM 2 makes sure it at least looks nice. It's a big step up from the first film. Everyone else seems to be on their game too. Sally Field gets more to do as Aunt May (her exchanges with Peter have some of the best, and most charming dialogue in the film), Emma Stone's adorableness is amped up due to the nature of the story, Dane DeHaan is going to be a great addition to the franchise's credibility moving forward, and Paul Giamatti seems to phone it in but it's hilariously bad enough to work. The only stand out seems to be Jamie Foxx. He may be good as Max, but as his transformation into the growly Electro is short changed, he gets less room to play around with the character.  The fun I mentioned? It's here in spades. While the first film is bogged down in seriousness, ASM 2 finally plays around with how cartoony Spider-Man comics really are. Garfield gets to do something other than be awkward all over the screen, there are hilariously bad puns and jokes, Peter has the "Spider-Man! Spider-Man!" theme as his ringtone, and the music in this film is ridiculous in the best way. Seriously, Electro uses the power of Dubstep. At one point he even uses that power to play out a very familiar theme. You just have to be willing to wade through the web of exposition to get to the fun.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ultimately suffers from franchise syndrome. As it seems intent to focus on the future, we don't get quite a fulfilling present. There's kooky fun to be had, but we're never given enough time to enjoy it before we're given more information about future movies. In fact if you took all of those extra scenes out (and believe me, they are extra), we'd have the best Spider-Man film, hands down. I really loved everything else, so I wish someone would have reigned it in a bit.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 slings a web that catches a good amount of flies but, instead of enjoying them, it's only focused on the flies it hasn't caught yet.

This is a weird one.  It's weird in that it seems to be a medium-obvious spoiler for an upcoming film. But the reason it's a "spoiler" is because it may allude to a decades-old story...Especially for anyone who like...

Looks like Andrew Garfield is putting that new suit to good use, at least if these new pics from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 are anything to go by. There not particularly action packed, and some are pretty damn b...
