Hey, didya see that one big supposed Spider-Man leak today? I don’t dare repost the pictures here. I’ll just say they were featuring the two other Spider-folks everyone expects to show up, plus Daredevil (which is kinda what made me lean on the side of “probably not real”). And I am DREADING THIS FILM! I mean, I’m excited too, it’s hard not to be at this point, but I love the Raimi trilogy y’know? It’s why I still have raimispiderman going over on tumblr. And I just don’t want the MCU messing with the core story of the Raimi movies. I can accept some cameos from what appear to be slight variations on Molina-Ock and Dafoe-Goblin, but bring Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man back and it just sort of… disrupts the canon of the original movies, you know? They were very down to earth (as far as superhero flicks can be) and just don’t fit in with the wider MCU and its multiversal gods-and-monsters stuff at all.
I am looking forward to seeing what’s apparently a new Green Goblin costume (worn by a stuntman here-)
but Goblin is on the poster released yesterday and as far as I can tell it’s the same costume from the Raimi movies, so that’s a wee bit disappointing.
It also occurs to me that poor Tom Holland hasn’t really had a solo solo film yet, another big MCU superhero is always there with him and in this one he’s kinda by necessity playing second fiddle to the supervillains. Aww man, sorry Tom.
Is anyone else feeling the same way? Just sort of a bit :/ about the whole enterprise?
