... then check out how Amazing Spider-Man 2 is actually lamer than some of the comics on which it's based.
Spoilers below the fold!
Namely -- the bad guys' origins. First, the Green Goblin is actually a disease. That's right, "a disease that makes your skin turn green and warty, and turns your fingernails into claws." Yep, this "occurs in nature," to further quote Topless Robot.
As for Electro (played by Jamie Foxx), his origin is even funnier: Instead of merely being a power company repair guy who happened to be zapped by a bolt of lightning while working on a power line, Foxx gets his abilities "by falling into a vat of mutant electric eels while holding a live power cord."
Man, I thought movies made things more realistic than the comics, not the other way around!Posted by Hube at April 29, 2014 06:01 PM | TrackBack
