SPIDER-MAN 2 teaser description!

Hey folks, Harry here... In all likelihood, SPIDER-MAN 2 will have its teaser ready for RETURN OF THE KING, that's what I'm hearing. I'm hearing the same thing for WORLD OF TOMORROW, which... btw is going to be called SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW I here, due to the pre-approved 2nd and 3rd films which Paramount has given the thumbs up to. Looks like they want to brand the films with the name SKY CAPTAIN, much like Indiana Jones was later used in that series. As for SPIDER-MAN 2... well... this trailer will cause wet spots around the country...

I don't know if you are interested but I saw a rough teaser of Spider Man 2.

I don't know when it's coming out because some FX shots were incomplete.  

The teaser begins with a dialogue between Toby Maguire and Kirsten Dunst. They are in a coffee shop and she asks him if he loves her. He says "no", trembling. "Okay, if you don't love me, give me a kiss", she says and leans forward. "I would like to see something". You can notice he's very nervous. Just when they're about to kiss he ducks in slow motion and pushes her to the floor. We see a full size car smashing through the coffee shop window and nearly hitting them. In slow motion one of the car wheels almost peels Toby's face off.

Then, right through the broken entrance comes Doc Ock, walking with his tentacles, never touching the ground, like a metal spider. We cut to a series of rapid shots of Alfred Molina, showing off his tentacles (they're attached to his back like a metal backpack) before an audience. Then shots of Spidey swinging in the city. Then James Franco with his eyes open in astonishment.

Then some shots of Spidey and Ock fighting. Actually Doc Ock grabbing Spidey with one of his tentacles and shaking him and tossing him around. Finally, Doc climbing like Spidey a building but with his tentacles until he reaches the top and stand there in full supervillain pose. We pull back and the Doc Ock image fills the eye of Spidey and the letters appear: 2 - July 2004. Notice that, like the poster, they never say it's Spider-Man 2, just "2".  

Well that's it!!! I hope you'll use this!!!

    It'd be so much cooler as the "Amazing Spider-Man" or "Spectacular...", "Web of..." , "Tangled Web of...", or anything more inspired than Spider-Man 2.

    I'm glad they cast Molina because....

    by Blok Narpin says to me that they weren't casting with a big name star just for the sake of it like the Batman films did. Alfred Molina is far from being a star. Despite years in the business he is NOT a well known name. This says to me that he was cast for his suitability in the role, and his acting. This isn't Arnold Schwarzeneger as Mr Freeze again. That was terrible casting only done to bring a big name star to the role, and not because he was the right actor. Hopefully the Batman films will take a look at this and learn thier lesson. After seeing "Batman: Dead End" I'm kind of hoping that Andrew "Boner" Koenig gets cast as the Joker in the sequel to "Batman Intimidation Game". Come to think of it, I wonder how Mark Hamill would look in Joker Make-up. We've all come to identify his voice with the Joker so much over the years that in the first episode of "Birds of Prey" they dubbed his voice over the actor playing the role. Why not just have him play the role???

    by ComicBookGeek77

    As I read this talkback I see a lot of dumbasses saying Spiderman 1 sucked. WTF? That was probably THE best comic book adaption, EVER. It was hokey? Well, it's a movie about a guy who can climb on walls and fights super-villains, we're not talking about an art-house, lovey-dovey, puppy dogs and ice cream, "serious" movie here. Spiderman was WAY better than Batman, I know a lot of retards who swear by this one, well that movie sucked. Yes, I will shell out the 8 dollars to go see this movie and from the sounds of it, this trailer is going to kick some major ass. I ALSO know all you fags who are claiming Spiderman 1 sucked, WILL be right there in line with me, you fucking hypocrites.

    The mere implication that Spider Man is worse than the so called DareDevil "movie" is just plain idiotic! Did you SEE that bullseye crap? What a waste of 2hours of my life. If you mute it and just watch scenes with the Alias chick, it's almost passable as entertainment. And don't get me started on the Hulk, which should be renamed "Shrek 1.5" or just "The Crap". Bottom Line Spider Man GOOD, X-mes 1&2 pretty Good, Hulk and Daredevil equal Crap + Crap or Crapx2, whichever you all prefer!

Yeah for comic books, yeah for making them into movies, but does that mean we all must bow down to them for trying, Spiderman did nothing, broke NO new ground, it looks like it was made 10 years ago. Its not bad, but Doctopuss will be horrible, come on, your the kind of people that clapped and yelled when Yoda pulled out his butterfinger lightsaber and ricocheted like a pinball off the walls.

    by Lost Skeleton

    along with Atticus Finch, Nintendo and Obscure Reference. Spider-Man was one of best comic book movies ever (third on my list after Superman and Superman II) I mean that flick had something for everyone. Kids loved it; romance for the ladies, action for the fellas; good acting. Whomever hated Spidey just hates anything good!

    First of all, look at his stupid name. The fact that you went and created a User ID like that means that you care WAY too much about Internet jabbering. Second, I could barely understand that quasi-coherent babble you call "speech". I'm guessing youre....13? Sounds about right. Third, Spiderman is THE greatest comic book adapation EVER. It made oodles of money, and was recieved positively by critics and audiences alike (the true test of an awesome movie). Think about all those horrible adaptions they'll be throwing at us soon--we're bound to tire pretty fast (Cmon, Daredevil, Catwoman, IronMan, The Punisher, Hellboy?? horrible) of this comic book craze. So appreciate the fact that all the best superheroes have already been made--Spidey, Superman, Batman, and X-Men. People like Spiderman because they can relate to him. He carries on a normal life and has the same problems we do. Tell me, what superhero do YOU like?

Spiderman is my favorite but I also love movies and when you get somethinglike Spiderman handed to you to direct and a huge budget you BREAK NEW GROUND, come on man? You say, it had action, what action, I saw the asme action in Batman with the Macy's Day bullshit. I think these movies owe us more then a suit that looks like the comic. Your telling me thisis Raimi's best work, Please, A Simple Plan Better, Evil Dead, he made Spiderman look like a Lunchbox for sale at K-Mart. I AM NOT SAYING IT WAS ALL BAD, BUT I EXPECT MORE from Stan Leee material, 100 Million budget and Sam Raimi, and more so the fans. Action , where, the movie is unwatchable, name one memeorable scene.

    I have to agree with Harry. I wanted to LOVE Spiderman. Desired to LOVE Spiderman. Didn't. Didn't even like it. It never took off. Never had that moment that sucked you in like Superman saving Lois and catching the helicopter. Superman II "General, would you care to step outside." Or Batman when Nicholson becomes The Joker.The SPFX looked fake. The villian was okayyyy. The balloons were a direct swipe of Batman. There was never any real sense of peril. Boring characters. I want to LOVE 2. Desire to LOVE 2. That being said... Spiderman made Daredevil look like Casablanca. Daredevil su-u-u-ucked. Spiderman was just dry.

Coolest title ever. Also, the first spiderman did not suck, it was just very overrated. but it was every bit as good as any other comic book flick. The first half of the movie was very good. the Green Goblin could have had a cooler suit,though, but w.Dafoe was good...and Molina will be a fine otto octavius, don't worry your heads little ones.

    Can't wait for this teaser to come out. In the words of Homer Simpson, "Groin-grabbingly" awesome. Spidey 1 was cool. It kinda went down hill after the Time Square fight, but I still liked it. The origins were PERFECT. Green Goblin stuff was okay. And to those people who don't like Doc Ock's coat? I think it looks cool. Sometimes I like seeing new costume designs. Who wants a really husky guy in tight green and orange spandex, like in the comics? Also, Alfred Molina rocks. Any of you guys seen the movie Luther? It's a good movie, and Alfred, though his role is kinda small, is well done, and I could imagine him as Doc Ock. Oh yeah, and that guy earlier who said Hulk should be titled, "The Crap," thank you. For some unknown reason, that caused me to laugh insanely (Crap is a funny word sometimes when you are 13. I don't know why.)

    The Spectacular Spider-Sham

    by Serious Black

    Spider-Man 2 will probably be just like the first: just good enough to make a pile of money, but not really great. Why do we, the fans, continue to support this crap? Because we want it to be great. We want the rest of the world to know how cool our childhood heros really were and still are. Spider-Man 1 looked so good right up until it started cutting to the CG cartoon Spider-Man bouncing all over the place. I mean, they got the essence of the movements right, but it looked SO badly done. There were many other flaws in the film, but the poor CG was unforgivable. Needless to say, I'm still pissed. It was a simple case of the studio not having the balls to shell out the cash to do it right. And it worked out so well for them the first time, I don't predict any improvements this time around. I so want this to be great, but after that first Spider-Man movie I'm not expecting much.

    I liked Daredevil better than Spider-man

    by Billy Bob 2

    I'm not kidding. DD is a seriously underrated comic flick that gets better upon repeated viewings (I bought the DVD - sue me) I still can't get through the last 30 minutes of Spider-man.

    Hear, hear, Billy Bob!

    The end of Spider-Man was really bad. And the worst part was when the Green Goblin gets wacked by his own glider. Not only was it a stupid, anti-climactic way to kill the bad guy, but it nails him RIGHT IN THE CROTCH! Seriously, that first scene of him pinned to wall, it looks like it might have missed his nuts by an inch, two inches at most. Later, they show that the glider has conveniently moved up by about a foot so that it stabbed him just below the ribs. WTF! You all know exactly what I'm talking about. Every guy watching that scene was thinking "Ooo! The Goblin just got gelded by his own glider!" Then you saw the wound miraculously change to his abdomen and you were thinking, "Whew, that was a close one!" But wait-a-minute! You just saw a guy get groin chopped. That's not something you're gonna just forget, so it's so totally obvious when the location of the wound changes. It just further helps to pull the audience out of the movie at what is supposed to be the most intense moment. It's sloppy filmmaking, which would be forgivable, even expected, in a low budget film such as, hmm, let's say EVIL DEAD! But not in a huge, supposedly $100M summer blockbuster. All you dudes can get excited over this new movie if you want, but don't come crying to the AssGerbil when it doesn't meet your high expectations.

    More ranting at the evil of Spider-Man

    by Gere's AssGerbil

    And that whole scene at the bridge when everybody starts throwing crap at the's eye-rollingly awful. It's apparently a ploy to play into the mood of the U.S. at the time so close after 9/11. I don't know if this was really the case, but that's how it appears. Now that the mood of the country has changed, it looks as though it's mocking the justifiable anger that was felt at the time. "You mess wit' one New Yawkuh, you mess wit' all of us!" Pathetic.

    "Memorable scenes from Spider-Man 1?"

    by Otter

    Peter's first wallcrawling experience, catching Mary-Jane's lunch, Flash's slow-motion punch, Aunt May's speech in the hospital, and the best, the upside-down kiss in the alley? On top of the web swinging, are any of these memorable, "harrysoldout"? Hmmm?

    First web crawling experience, come on that was terrible, it should have veen done a million differnt ways, crawling upside down? spinning around? hanging? NO, what did Raimi do? Just go up, wow real original, how bought up a bridge? or a real tall building at night? not a five story buliding? Terrible, Next: Catching Mary Jane's Lunch? That was cool? Could it have looked faker? With 200 other teenagers eating lunch right next to them no one else noticed the fall or the catch? Yeah that was memorable, bad memorable, next: Flash slow motion punch: I'll give you that, that was cool. The only thing that was regarding Spidey's Powers, next: Aunt May's Speech, what? that's just a bad example, I don't even recall that nonsense next: Upside Down Kiss, what are you 10? That wasn't memorable, the only thing that made it memorable is that you saw it on 1000 Dr.Pepper and Blockbuster Commercials. If your going to bring up examples bring up good ones, Aunt May's Speech, you probably liked the rave scene in Matrix ReLoaded.

    What the fuck?

    by Up yours

    Spiderman wasn't a great film by any stretch - they changed shit that didn't need to be changed from the comic, it had some pretty fuckin' crappy designs, really bad cartoonish effects, and overall it just wasn't a movie worth watching more than once, maybe twice, there's nothing really memorable about the film at all. The only thing about this film that made me smile was that while waiting in line and even during the film there were lots of kids excitedly talking about Star Wars: Episode 2. As for Spiderman 2, I'll make it a blockbuster night. Unless my closer friends (who equally disliked Spiderman) have something positive to say about this movie, one thing for sure is they've nailed Doc Oc, he looks fantastic.

    Where the FUCK is VENOM?!?!?!?!?!???????????

    Seriously Raimi, where is he? Most Spidey fans want a movie with Venom!

    Fuck you all who say "SPIDER-MAN" wasn't a good film.

    by screenplaywriter

    You are the exact same people who bitch and bitch on and on about how inaccurate The Kingpin was because was black in "DAREDEVIL", you are the same people who thought "HULK" was a useless piece of dribble, and you are the exact same people who got to make a mockery of every good film, not recognizing how good of a film it was. "SPIDER-MAN" is hands down one of the top-superhero-adaptations to date. It had everything a comic-book movie needs and so did the other two. You people just badmouth because of a CGI issue, or a change in costume, or whatever. FUCK THAT! "BLADE 2" was a terrible movie but yet some of you people worship it as if it were your holy bible. I hope "SPIDER-MAN 2" knocks everybody's socks off and proves that sequels can be just as good as the original and make you all shocked at how brilliantly made/directed/acted it is, just like the first.

  • Nov. 26, 2003, 8:14 p.m. CST

    I hope "SPIDER-MAN 3" brings on Hobgoblin and The Green Goblin t

    by screenplaywriter

    I think then we could have Spidey kill Harry, he has to go to another funeral, Mary Jane and him call it adue' for now until "SPIDER-MAN 4" where they get back together, rekindle their love, get married, and it's a big-ass showdown to the end against Venom, ultimately ending the franchise and leaving critics and fans well pleased.

    Get your facts straight

    by Up yours

    screenplaywriter for your information I LOVED the HULK, I think it's a fantastic film (for a comic book adaption that is), not without flaws, but much better than Spiderman IMO, I feel The Hulk was greatly underrated. And I had no problem with Duncan as Kingpin, it was the rest of Daredevil that sucked, well most of it anway, I always like Joe Pantaliano-whatsagigitz though too, he had a decent role in that flick I thought. And I seriously hope that Spiderman 2 is a good film, but I'm not expecting much at all, not after the last one, which I simply did not enjoy - and I will say this with full confidence, and you know there's no debating it Spidey just is not a very memorable film, it will never be remembered as a classic, it will never have a big cultural impact. It may not be among the worst films ever made but there are films ALOT better than it. And I would rather spend my time rewatching those and rewatching them again.

    i can't believe that two of you dorks got all worked up over a joke about "electric boogaloo", "...ceased to be funny around 1989", yeah you maybe. you responded to it! And moonman, i applaud your efforts to be the arcane reference king of the AICN talkback. OOOH...Jack Lemmon, 1965, no one will get this. I bet you are still fucking beaming in self love over that one. to the winners! electric boogaloo is timelessly absurd and that was sarcasm when it was referred to as the best title ever. I didn't realize you guys were too cool for good old fashioned sarcasm. Serious error in judgement on my part! oh wait, none of this ridiculous shit matters! so...happy thanksgiving pals.
