Question for people who've read the comics (I'm guessing that the answer lies there):
During the first trilogy, the father becomes Green Goblin, dies, and then Harry avenges his death by being the Green Goblin also, but in this series, Harry becomes the goblin first. Why the difference? I take it that one followed (is following) the comics whereasthe other didn't (isn't)?

Because it looks like Norman is terminally ill judging by his appearance in the trailer.

I'm a huge Spider-Man fan and I honestly couldn't tell you why they did this.

 

My theory is that he is a "Proto"-Goblin and test the Oz syrum for his dad, goes ape sh*t, and in TASM 3 or 4, Norman uses oz, turns into a Monster Goblin, and tries to kill Peter.

I hope it's Ultimate Goblin, a hulk like beast. Because Harry looks like the serum only transformed him half way.

Memorys slightly sketchy but they may have pulled some influence from the spectacular spider-man animated series (which is fantastic) when dealing with the harry/norman goblin storyline.

Not a fan of ultimate goblin, preferrably I want something more classic gobby/hobgoblin/demogoblin but considering there looks like a clip of

So this movie was pretty damn good. Love the way the action scenes are handled in these films. There was some pretty faithful comic adaptations here (including that 'big' one that we all knew was coming) and the villains don't feel too cram-packed into one storyline like SM3. Easily sets up future sequels and spin-offs. Also I like that we're actually getting some back story to Peter's parents (again also adapted pretty faithfully from the comics).

@Firefly8000

I hate to disappoint you, but: http://www.ign.com/a...2as-end-credits

 

And now we have the reasoning behind all this, and it’s all very contract-based and mundane. According to Variety, the insertion of this scene in Spider-Man 2 happened because the film’s director Marc Webb “had an existing contract with Fox Searchlight to helm another film following 2009′s 500 (Days) of Summer. After The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012, Webb’s negotiations briefly stalled with Sony as he was caught in a tug-of-war with Fox. Eventually, Fox agreed to allow Webb to direct Sony’s Spider-Man sequel, but only if Sony would promote its X-Men film for free.” Hence the mid-credits stinger.

 

What a shame. Personally, I would have prefered Spidey as a part of MCU (and I'd rather see him in The Defenders than in The Avengers), but Spider-Man - Fantastic Four team-up would be great. And we actually could get Peter dating Kitty Pryde like in USM too.

Funny thing..

So apparently there's a trailer for Xmen DOFP at the end of this.

And 2-3 weeks ago.

I had a dream, that after TASM 2 there was a post credits scene about Xmen.

But it wasn't DOFP. It was X-Force.

And it wasn't a scene. It was that Fox wasn't willing to spend any budget on a franchise that is spiraling down constantly...

So the post credits not-a-scene was a Fox employee in every theater that tells everyone that walks out about X-Force. And describes the movie.

 

 

I'd like to think that was close enough. I can see the future.

The Osborn curse (And the simple fact that Norman Osborn is the master of not dying).

Doc Ock's arms.

Vulture's wings.

Electro's look (Electricity never dies).

The surprisingly spreading rumor that Spiderman will die at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 3.

 

 

This is the only thing that is appearing in my head:

No, but I'm a fan of Dane Dehaan and there wasn't much else that was great about the movie it was just mostly setting up future movies when they should've focused on the movie they were making, the action scenes were weak, there was too much going on, the villains were underused (rhino should've been left out.) and the movie was long.

I would hardly call the Raimi movies "the originals". I would also not call the Amazing Spider-Man a remake. It's not, because that would mean they are trying to remake the Raimi movies, which is ridiculous. The Raimi movies were based on the comics, the ASM movies are based on the comics. If they're "remaking" anything it's the stories from the comics.
I do think the term "reboot" fits quite well, though.

.

Exactly mate. Raimi didn't invent spidey and while he made some great spidey films there's a lot more to the character than his iteration.

As for pete acting like a 'douche' when he gets his powers, he's a teenager on a power trip..maguire pratcially became a hero overnight whereas its cap staceys speech and the bridge scenes where he saves jack which makes him realise that he has more to offer. Webbs version carrys much more weight in petes journey to becoming spider-man.
I caught. Tasm2 on release, it definitely has pacing /editing problems..but the acting is mostly stellar, dehaan was great in it tas I expected but I think we may sacrifice truly reat films due to them trying to fit uo much in. I loved it tho but I can understand the bad reviews its getting. Its a load of fanastic scenes haphazardly connected where's raimis films flowed.


Not gonna lie either I had tears flowing from my eyes at gwens fate.

Finally watched it. I honestly didn't like or hate the film. I felt like there were very few action/fight scenes compared to other films in the franchise. Electro had a nice design but stupid motivations and vague goals. Dane DeHaan was fantastic as Harry but the last minute Goblin transformation felt too early, it's something that should have been used for a post-credits scene.

I do know escapist is little confused,
But have you not know about zero punctuation and movie bob, both of them are very good reviewers, they think deep and intellectually give their reviews, they don't hesitate to say if they hate it or love it. Not like others...
Have you watched the review yet, god this movie BROKE him, ha ha.

I love all Spiderman movies and Andrew is doing a fantastic job. I cried for four straight minutes when Gwen died, maybe more from imagining how life would be without my Miss. I really liked this one, but Gwen waa a reason to watch these movies..
