Two Weeks to Go

As I said last time, when I first discovered this Internet thing, a live-action Spider-Man film seemed nigh-impossible. And now, the third one comes out in two weeks!

When they were writing the screenplay, director Sam Raimi said that they'd decided on a theme for the film, and the difficulty then became finding a villain to go along with that theme. Well, I think it's safe to say that the theme is "vengeance."

- New Goblin Harry wants revenge on Peter Parker

- Spider-Man wants revenge on Sandman

- Venom wants revenge on Spider-Man

I'm still kind of curious to see how this multi-villain set-up is going to work. Many agree that the beginning of the end with the Batman films was trying to work multiple villains into one movie.

Meanwhile, the film had its world premiere in Tokyo back on Monday. Reviews are starting to pop up online. I'm avoiding them, as they've all got heavy spoiler warnings, but so far, they're ranging from "pretty good" to "better than #2."

Two weeks seems so far away....

Oh, yeah. There's another Marvel comics movie coming out this summer. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

Ol' Morpheus himself, Laurence Fishburne, is going to be doing the voice of the Silver Surfer. It was originally thought that Fishburne would be voicing Galactus, but those reports were wrong.

Nerds are upset over how Galactus is going to be portrayed. Reports say that gone is the classic, kilometers-tall giant. Now, the purple planet eater will just be a giant, mysterious cloud.

Reviews from early test screenings are starting to circulate online. On that one, the reviews are ranging from "fetid pile of dog vomit" to "claw your own eyes out bad."

June 29th for that one.
