    I don't know if he definitively will or not. I'm just saying that I don't see this as a significant enough development for him just to up and quit provided everyone else is more or less in place.

    Tom Holland recently stated he wanted to play Spider-Man forever. I don't really see this as changing much from a creative standpoint. All that changes is they can't reference the MCU, Tony Stark,...

    I get that. But I wish people would just use common sense rather than emotion.

    It would be like having an agreement with your agent for 10% of your income, then after you become successful they...

    They really don't need to ignore anything. All the contracts that were in place in terms of the actors and crew that were involved in the last two Spider-Man movies were/are with Sony, not Marvel. ...

    I don't see how anyone can view this as anything other than Marvel/Disney overstepping their bounds.

    A 50/50 split? Why would Sony or anyone ever agree to that? The original agreement was just...

    Good point.

    I use digital as a platform to read a lot of old stuff. When I was younger and my budget was tighter I only really read 3-5 characters regularly. Now I've expanded my regular pull...

    The problem with hiring real actors to read comic books is that it's just not cost effective based on sales. You'd have to dramatically cut titles and other costs.

    Besides, DC or Marvel could...
  9. As a correction to my prior post, digital comics...

    As a correction to my prior post, digital comics are in fact worth nothing once you purchase and/or read it. You can't resell it or return it.

    Even if you pay $3.99 for a comic book and decide...

    The problem with digital sales currently is that a single digital comic book costs exactly the same as a floppy, the difference being that the digital comic will always be worth the price it was paid...

    Digital sales are a fraction because old-time fans like us still primarily purchase floppies. I would venture to guess most digital sales are more casual fans than long-time ones. Part of the...

    They were able to use the character again by all but ignoring Shed and undoing Billy's death the best way they could. I don't know if that's really a ringing endorsement of the story.

    I don't have a problem with the story being dark. Kraven's Last Hunt is widely considered to be one of the greatest Spider-Man stories of all-time and it's exceptionally dark.

    My issue with the...

    Well, to the point that he was Peter's best friend's father and wasn't in control of being the Green Goblin.

    I understand Normal has always been less-than redeemable.

    The easiest answer to this would be for the writer not to use the character for a while. There was nothing wrong with Green Goblin or Lizard, or their dynamics. And there are parameters that you...

    And depending on where you go or who you ask, that 1981 start date for millennials is pretty flexible. I've seen some lists start the generation as late as 1984.

    I ranked them higher and I consider them to be superior films from an entertainment standpoint than Insurrection, Nemesis, Motion Picture, or Final Frontier.

    Having said that, it's pretty...

    I'm going to exclude franchises from my list, because I feel like at that point my list would just be Terminator, Aliens, Star Trek, and Star Wars movies:

    Donnie Darko
    Dark City
    Total Recall...

    Well, being more of a casual X-Men and Fantastic Four fan, I would agree that them taking a backburner to other properties that Marvel had full licenses to made perfect business sense.

    Having said...

    Well, I really enjoyed Gauntlet (with the exception of the new Vulture and now Shed in retrospect). I thought it was one of the better Spider-Man stories to come out post-OMD/pre-Slott.

    But yeah,...

    I don't believe that Marvel wanted to end X-Men or Fantastic Four for that matter just because of the rights issues between them and Fox regarding the movie licensing.

    Having said that, Marvel all...

    The Lizard in "SHED" (Spoilers)

    So I recently re-read The Gauntlet and specifically "Shed" (the concluding Lizard arc). While I had good memories of the story at the time, I definitely see why it was controversial and why Billy's...

    For me, the first two Spider-Man movies are still the definitive live-action Spider-Man adaptations. They're not perfect, but I thought Raimi & Company made the most epic Spider-Man movies ever all...

    There were also a slew of YEAR ONE annuals that came out in the mid to late 90's for all the characters that were being published by DC at the time. Most of them were run-of-the-mill but some were...

    For me, comics were just so much better in the 70's and 80's (and very early 90's). Maybe that makes me an old man, I don't know. But I don't really have the same passion for comics written today...
