It's basically general knowledge at this point to know that I am a super nerd when it comes to Marvel & DC. I'm not one of those guys who watched Christopher Nolan's Batman movies and then called myself an expert (which nothing is wrong with). No, I am the kind of guy that got hand-me-down comics from his cousins, collected for ten + years, pretend I'm Bruce Wayne when I walked the halls of middle school, would watch all the movies as if they were educational films and that's only the Batman franchise.
So it's safe to say when rumors start roaring about Venom, who is my favorite Marvel villain MIGHT be referenced of more in the new Spider Man 2 movie, being stoked is an understatement.
Not to forget that the movie isn't only having Jamie Fox as Electro terrorize the city but also The Rhino, played by Paul Giamatti. If we were to activate our detective mode and compare them to the comic versions of themselves we would find that Electro and the Rhino are almost always just thugs for hire, not having much imagination for anything more than robbing a bank or being paid to hold off Spider Man.. So who could they possibly be working for? Norman Osborn you say? Green Goblin you say? The plot already thickens you say? You want Venom to be played by an Osborn you say? I'm excited to find out!
Lets look at spidey's biggest change for the movie visually...the costume! They have changed the thick rubber/ basketball-like texture from his previous movie to a more simple- comic book version along with his eyewear. No longer so reflective much more comic book-esq (large and white). Which I am a big fan of, I hope they go into details as to why he has changed his costume. It's the little things like that which always pump me up!
What do you think of the new costume?
