Here’s the official synopsis of the film:

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.

    What was worse – ASM2 or Spiderman 3?

    • Agent777

      I don’t think 3 was bad at all. I think it made Venom fans feel like jokes because Raimi adapted Venom verbatim from his first appearances and subconsciously they realized Venom is pretty damn lame. I’m a Sandman fan, so I was happy.

      It had flaws surly, but they are all Sony’s doing.

      • Pernell Whitaker

        Spiderman 3 is one of the biggest missteps in movie history. Raimi could’ve had it all, instead he’s not even a has been, he’s a never was….

        Not sure what you mean by that. Regardless of how bad the third was, it doesn’t magically negate the first two. And for me Spidey 2 still holds up as one of the best superhero movies ever made.

      • Pernell Whitaker

        Yeah spiderman 2 has unlimited rewatchability, I love that film. I love the first one too, brilliant origin movie. Spiderman 3 tho, Holy shit, that was wack!

      • Agent777

        I’m sorry SONY let you down on Spider-Man 3, but you’ll live.

      • Agent777

        Sam Raimi’s legacy is pretty damn safe.

        A bigger misstep was dumping him for Webb and Garfield.

        If you can’t acknowledge the production difficulties and studio interference then your argument loses all validity. Sam Raimi had Ben Kingsley lined up for the Vulture. I mean come on, he made lemons with lemonade, and I respect him more for that than just quitting. I saw it opening day and the audience and everyone I went were pleased and well entertained.

        Also, consider all the other superhero franchises with mediocre third films, Superman 3 anyone? Blade: Trinity? X-Men 3? Batman Forever? In this equation I fail to see how Spider-Man 3 is a worse film. People mainly bitch as the scene of Peter being goofy, but is that really worse than Jim Carrey as the Riddler? Who were the villains in Superman 3? Richard Pryor and Robert Vaughn? Putting things in perspective… Spider-Man 3 is just not that bad. It’s not that good either, but I think, given the track record for third superhero movies… just seems silly to me.

        DISCLAIMER: I do enjoy Batman Forever.

        Batman Forever and B&R are great films for young children to watch that aren’t mature enough for the Nolan films. Batman Forever though is still a decent film so I agree about the 3rd films being the hardest to nail. Even TDKR failed to land where TDK was and IMO is still the best closer of a trilogy (better than ROTJ IMO) to date.
        SM3 and TASM2 are both products of studio tampering and they show it. Both could have been great had they let their talent run the show.

        Batman Forever is not the third part of a trilogy, it has absolutely nothing to do with Tim burton´s Batman 3 that got never made because WB found Batman Returns too dark.Batman Forever was a reboot.

      • lord jim

        Sam Rami is famous and loved for Evil Dead 1,2 and Army of Darkness, so I don´t see your point.What do you mean by “all”, Spiderman 4?

      • Pernell Whitaker

        Well, what’s he had since Spiderman 3? Drag Me To Hell, which I enjoyed but had forgotten until now and Oz which was rubbish and again forgettable. Raimi was like Samson, and with Spidey 3 the studio cut his hair and fed it to him.

      • lord jim

        The more money you need to create your vision, the less of your vision will remain intact because of studio interference – it´s hollywood.But Drag Me To Hell was truly forgettable, and neither scary nor funny, so maybe he did lose his mojo.

  • Agent777

    Why is this movie still news? The Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me deleted scenes just came out, and that easily bigger news, and that films over 20 years old.

    ”although this featurettes doesn’t tell you how many hours Jamie Foxx had to spend in the chair as he blue himself.” Oh Matt, you so silly.

    • milo

      I liked the AD reference.

      • Leo Spaceman

        I think Sony may have Prematurely Shot Their Wad with this franchise.

      • Bob and Rob Piccob

        They definitely have something of a mess on their hands.

  • lars

    love this film,cant wait to own it,if you didn’t like it,tough

  • Colin Christian

    I liked the 2nd of Raimi’s films,amazing movie,but as far as all the other Spidey flicks? Not a fan.I loved Sandman for the first half of 3,the big fists etc were terrific,but then they went crazy with the CGI and ruined any human element to the character.Such a great book,such lousy movies. Don’t get me started on The Rhino.
