The Marvel Studios thread | X-MEN acquisition incoming


#8085

Seeing Spider-Verse today. I didn’t know Kingpin was the villain of this movie. Slight spoiler I guess? Ah well, I honestly don’t care.

I’m going into this movie completely ignoring all the hype and people gushing about it and just hoping it’s a decent movie.


#8086

Knowing who the villain is in a superhero movie is not a spoiler in the slightest. It’s not something the movie tries to hide.


#8087

All the promotional material I’ve seen hasn’t shown Kingpin.


#8088

He’s appears in the trailers and commericals.


#8089

kingping def wasnt a secret at all. But he’s such a minor aspect of it.


#8090

I guess I just never noticed or didn’t see the right commercial/trailer? Self admittedly I’ve only seen the original trailer. So.

Shrug.


#8091

Im seeing Sverse today and imo in the trailers/commercials, it seems they were keeping the villains under lock and key. Other than a fleeting glimpse of Kingpin, I have no idea who the villains are.


#8092

Ditto, I’ve watched almost all the trailers and didn’t know Kingpin was in this.


#8093

Just got back from Into the Spider-Verse.
Peni Parker best Spider-Man.

The only thing I didn’t like about Into the Spider-Verse were the design choices for the villains. all of them except for Prowler . The rest were just badly designed imo. Kingpin looked absolutely ridiculous.


#8094

meh i didnt think doc oct looked bad because she reminded me of ms.frizzle


#8095

All in all I liked the movie though.

The art style oozed charm. It was like watching a 3D comic. Very cool. The soundtrack was :fire:. Miles Morales coming into his own as spider-man was great. All the different Spider-People were great too.

Also shout out to Nicolas Cage.


#8096

nicolas cage in the most nic cage role of his life lmfao.


#8097

I just saw Spider-verse.

Pros:

Art/animation. Even putting thought bubbles/narration boxes was genius.

Voice acting for the most part

Story

Humor

Aunt May not being a stereotypical old biddy

Post credit scene

Heartfelt moments

Cons:

I don’t think Liev Schreiber’s Kingpin voice was fitting. It was too much “New York thug” . IMO Kingpin is generally more refined in the comics and the 1994 Spiderman TAS and 2015 Netflix Daredevil. While the reasoning for his scheme was interesting, otherwise he felt a bit flat.

Overall: 9/10.

Tied wth Raimi’s SM2 as the best Spidey film imo


#8098

I didn’t stay for the after credits scene because I had a bunch of alcohol at lunch and then drank a huge bottle of water during the movie so I really had to go to bathroom. It was either watch the end credits or piss my pants.


#8099

since its not the 616 kingpin. i find its ok to take creative license.


#8100

I’ve been chilling to the soundtrack all day. So. Fucking. Good.


Literally me all day.


#8101

Spidey Bells…


#8102

It’s mostly a comic skit.

Spoilers

Miguel O’hara (Oscar Isaac) uses a new goober to travel to the dimension of the 1967 Spider-man show. They do the whole Spider-men pointing at each other thing. They argue over pointing and who pointed first. Jokes all around.
