Dude.

DUDE.

Spider-Man 3. The trailer, they...they...

They...

VENOM.

OH MY GOD.

Okay, some background. As a wee child Spiderman was my absolute favorite cartoon, hands down and absolute favorite superhero. Because first off, so *limber* (a precocious child, I was) and secondly, giant *nerd* and thirdly, so *limber* and fourthly, dude talked to himself like constantly. Unbalanced, but not in the brooding way that Batman is unbalanced, oh no. Just, like, he knew he was a hopeless nerd, and his alter ego was his best buddy so he talked to him. Called him Spidey. It was adorable.

Also limber.

And then Venom came along, and whispered silken promises in his ear and slid liquid black fingers along his body and owned him. Just. Fucking. OWNED him.

See—and the X-Files fans will follow me on this one—Venom is an oilien. Like, literally. He falls of the back of a spaceship. J. Jonah Jameson's son is an astronaut. And I don't know how they're going to bring him in for Spiderman 3. Frankly, I don't care.

He.

Wow.

They gave me Venom. They gave me Venom.

They gave me Venom.



In other news, I really enjoyed Superman Returns.

Cyclops! Kumar! Parker Posey! Nikita!

Kevin Spacey plays the *perfect* thug Luthor. First he robs an old lady blind and leaves her dogs to eat her. And each other. And hands the little girl bad wig #1 to watch leave her screaming her little head off. Then he breaks and enters into Superman's home. Then he robs museums in bad wigs.

Then he shanks Superman. *Shanks* him. With a *kryptonite shank.*

And *breaks it off* like, *four inches deep* inside his back.

And then he and Kumar and the rest of them just. Just. BEAT HIM. Good GOD, that was lovely.

Lex Luthor should always beat people.


And Superman and his beautiful, beautiful lapis blue eyes.

Dude, I can't believe he didn't tell Lois. When the woman you love tells you she had your baby, you tell her who you are. That was just shady. Now he's going to just keep being the absentee father not paying child support, SHAME on him, JESUS.


I liked Lois. I liked Superman. Lex will always, always be my favorite.


I loved the cheesy Star Wars-ish credits!



See, now I really want a Batman Returns sequel to come out. Because Joker. And if Joker, then maybe they'll get it right and give me Harley Quinn.

And I just figured out who would play the perfect Harley. Rachel McAdams. She played the bitch queen in Mean Girls and the heroine in The Notebook. She's curvy enough and tiny enough and has the acting range to be Joker's submissive happy little pet sociopath.

I'm totally picturing her all dolled up in Harley gear waving a hot poker in front of tied up Katie Holmes' face saying in her perfect New York lilt, "Aww sweetie, don't pass out now, we haven't even gotten to the fun part yet."


Her or maaaaaybe Christina Ricci.

Rachel McAdams as Harley Quinn would be awesome like an awesome thing. And the Batman Begins crew would get it right. It would be dark and twisted, but still humorous in parts. They already destroy Poison Ivy in the movieverse, so they owe me this much *shakes fist in rage*

They did *such* a good job with casting the first movie. Everyone was absolutely perfect. I really hope they don't disappoint me next time.

I love Tobey. He's pretty much exactly how I imagined Spiderman in my head, so.

::shrug::

Well, if you do watch the movie, I hope it doesn't end up hurting you too much.

:)

You tell your baby mamma!

They gave me Venom. They gave me Venom.
I remember watching SpiderMan 2 on dvd with some friends, and the second they introduced Jameson's son as MJ's new boyfriend, I shouted 'omgVENOM!! If they make a third movie, it's gonna be the one with Venom!1!!'. It's gonna be a long wait, but dammit, I hope it'll be worth it. ♥

Dude, every morning on FOX. I was so there.

With what they were doing with Harry I was all set up for Hobgoblin, which really I had no problem with because I *love* what they're doing with movieverse Harry, but Venom!!!

I bet if we get Harley, it's just going to be at the very, very end, since it'll be Batman's first encounter with The Joker. After the Joker is defeated and put into Arkham, the last time we see him would be when a female psychiatrist walks into the room and says "I'm Dr. Quinzell. Let's get started."

And that would still be awesome.

Aww. Well, I don't know the Batman canon all that well, but any Harley is better than none!

Hee, Harley became Harley because she was a psychiatrist who fell in love with him when he was at Arkham, so. I am hoping for an end of film cameo. *nods*

I feel your squee. :) Spiderman 2 was my favorite movie when it came out that year. I mean honestly it's just the best superhero movie they've made so far. (okay maybe Batman Begins can compete) but I just watched the trailer. May 7 can't come too soon.

it's not venom. it's the symbiote. venom is a different character all together, not peter parker. this one is peter parker. it could and should lead to venom, yes, but this movie is not about venom. :P

also, you are right about everything. except, i was not happy about superman's ass being kicked. :( but omg, i was like DUDE THAT'S KUMAR! I WONDER IF HE'S STONED!

*batman begins (sequel with the joker.. because it was batman begins with the joker card at the end. :D)

I was...psychotically happy when Superman got beaten.

Now I'm all confused. Maybe the comics are different? I'm using cartoon canon, since that's all I'm familiar with. As far as I can remember, whomever the symbiote was possessing it still referred to itself as venom. At one point in the cartoon Venom spawns Carnage and there's a scene where they're meeting for the first time and neither of them are possessing anyone (for the time being) and they're both calling each other Venom and Carnage.

According to wikipedia, Venom is the result of the symbyote latching onto a human, then goes on to say that the symbiote spent most of its time in Eddie Brock. That would seem to imply that it's still Venom regardless of whom it's possessing.
