Was not at all a fan of the first... ill rent this when it comes out on netflix...
Agreed. The first movie was a mess. It's always fun to see Spider-Man swing around and beat up baddies, but the plot was all over the place. Very poorly written and uninteresting to watch for me.
I wish them luck in their sequel, and I genuinely would love for this to do well as Spidey is and always has been my favorite superhero. But I won't support this series until it proves to me that it's earned it. And historically, throwing more bad guys on the screen is the quickest way to ruin a franchise, not build upon it.
The earlier Batman films, Spider-man 3, X-men 3, it's like these people have never seen a superhero film.
With 4 main characters (plus strong side characters) there's just no way there is going to be any character development. This poster just screams "BAD OMEN" to me.
I don't care much what the suit looks like, I just want the mask to obscure the eyes. It's always so strange seeing the human eyes sticking out of the big black rubber mask. The Arkham games did this too. Batman just looks too human when you can look him in the eyes. Seems like lenses would work better. Not contacts really, just something built into the mask to make him look less human and more fearsome.
nick fury! he holds so much mystery in his character.
My vote ended up going that way as well. I came in expecting to vote for Cap. The cinematic universe has been kind to old Steve in it's representation of him. Loki was another frontrunner. He's been given so much character through his appearances thus far. But end of the day, Nick has always been a compelling character. He always seems like an architect of a house of cards and he makes you feel like it's up to you (meaning whoever he's speaking with) to keep it from collapsing in on itself.
Gotta give it to Terry. I'm not the most well versed in MIles Morales or any of his stories because I have not been a big fan of Ultimate Marvel in general. I do like the idea of a new take on the Spider-Man, however I have just not followed it well enough to speak with authority. So all I can go with is what I have gleaned from reading the Wiki here on Comic Vine.
I am pretty well versed on Beyond though. And as I understand it, Miles best asset is his venom touch ability. Couple that with his agility and he's pretty formidable. But Terry just has too much going in his favor. Batman, as a concept, isn't supposed to have super powers but we all know he really does. He's Deus Ex Machina personified. And Terry's Batman adds in the nebulous concept of "future tech" on top of all of that. I just see an easy counter to all of Miles best attributes in Terry. Miles uses webs, Terry has a convenient way to cut them off or uses his electric charge to eradicate them. Miles uses Venom Touch, there's no way to make proper skin contact easily since the exo suit protects from those sorts of assaults. Miles goes invisible, Terry can pull up heat signature vision. And he can easily jet boot out of the way if Miles comes in using his enhanced agility.
It would be an entertaining match to watch or read about. But I see Terry taking this one 8 out of 10 times. Handily in fact.
I'm not invested enough in this either way. But it was interesting to read the Viner Arguments even though I didn't personally weigh in with the poll. I'm just not passionate enough about either entrant to try and sway the results, better to let the truer fans duke it out in this scenario than to punch and uninformed fanboyish vote.
I would love it if the team at Rocksteady could do a game about Slade. Playing as Deathstroke in the combat challenges is a blast and the character seems super popular here lately. I bet he could carry his own title.
Also thank to @g_man for taking the time to write up his thoughts. I always enjoy reading your work! :)
