    I heard it was Avi Arad who pressured Raimi to include Venom, not the Sony execs.

    Yeah, it was done way too quickly.

    Electro looks like Mr. Freeze from Batman and Robin

    I thought Goblin looked way like a Goblin than Dafoe's and Francos version

    Cough Two-Face from TDK cough

    Any one who says that GG was brought in to fast and were just fine with Two-Face in TDK...oh heck any one that say that and forgets about Two-face from TDK can no longer bring it up. If it was bad here then it was bad in TDK. And no saying well TDK was better so they could do it.

    Doesn't work like that. Entirely different films. Anyway, from what I'm reading, DeHaan is one of the few bright points for this film - debating whether or not to see it today.

    You can't say this movie had to much and then not say that The Dark Knight did not have to much. You can do that. If that mean I have to take The Dark Knight down a few pegs I will.

    People who hate on Electro's look - would you really rather have had the green spandex starfish head version? Ultimate Electro is what the movie version is bad on, and I thought he looked OK (Dr Manhattan references notwithstanding)

    Do it! It was the exact opposite of TWS for me. Everyone was like, "Oh TWS is like TDK its awesome!" I saw it, wasn't a big deal at all, wasn't too impressed. Everyone was saying ASM2 was crap, saw it, loved it. The characters really drive this movie and Garfield is a great Spider-Man, he's just "got it."

    Nothing Marvel has done has even remotely approached TDK.

    But I can see your point, Volderon - I did like TWS, and I liked the first Garfield Spidey movie quite a bit. Prolly will check it out.

    Saw it last night and really enjoyed it. Can't say the same about the first one, so that's definitely an improvement. Didn't think it was too crowded or anything, and Electro looked pretty good, miles above Lizard.

    Yeah, I'm not sure what people are complaining about. Goblin's arc moved very naturally through the film and his appearance in the climax didn't feel shoe-horned in the slightest. And Electro looked awesome. Yes, he looked like a cross between Dr. Manhattan and Emperor Palpatine when he just came out, but I really dug the final look and at least his appearance wasn't campy and stupid--like the "real" (non-Ultimate universe) Electro.

    The comic-book version of Electro looks like a boss from an NES "Mega Man" game...just sayin'. :)

    Two-Face wasn't portrayed as a villain in TDK. He was treated as the end result of the actions taken by everyone in the film and was only seeking dark justice for what happened to him. For all that he suffered for simply wanting to do good. This is different from ASM 2 where everyone is a villain and there's no moral gray area. Harry is only evil because he wants to live. Electro is obsessed fanboy #8674. Rhino is just a distraction to start and end the film on. Harvey was just the co-star of TDK and it shows.

    No, he should look like this...

    No blue, electric skin. No mask. Just a guy wearing a costume with electricity coursing up and down his body.

    I've just realized that all this time, I was expecting Jamie Foxx to play Electro.

    I'm wondering, given the characters introduced in ASM2 could we see Spider-Slayers in the next movie?

    Err, crap. I thought Jamie Foxx was going to be the Shocker.

    Why does Spiderman have two villains with the exact same powers, anyway?

    $92 million domestic opening weekend. Worldwide sales are good. A bit behind Spidey 3, which opened on the same weekend. Ahead of Thor 2.

    The Shocker uses vibrations as a weapon, not electricity. Please familiarize yourself with Spider-Man comics so you can complain with more authority.

    Can anyone explain to me where Electro got his clothes from in the movie? First he had shorts then a full suit. Is he like Elsa in Frozen where instead of making clothes with ice he made clothes with electricity?

    If you accept the notion that he can completely disassemble and reconstruct himself as he did during the Ravencroft breakout, it's not a huge leap to conclude that he can decide how he will look when he reconstructs himself.

    What, really? So why is he called "Shocker?" Huh. My main reference is from the Spider-Man cartoon, where I recall that the powers were explicitly electrical. My bad.

    - calls himself 'shocker'
    - attacks with powerful vibrations
    - wears a gimp suit

    *snicker*

    Because his weapons are vibro-shock guns, and because "The Vibrator" is not a good super-villain name for a kids' comic.
