Sam Raimi has been talking a lot of Spider-Man 4 with MTV lately. Recently, they discussed the topic everyone wants to know about: villains. As it has always been, there is still no idea who the villain will be, but it appears that they are leaning toward a few prospects. Raimi was also asked by MTV what the chances are that he would return to do Spider-Man 5 and Spider-Man 6, which are both being written by James Vanderbilt at the moment.
When asked about who may be in the mix for the villains, Raimi simply replied “I’m not allowed to say at this point,” which could mean anything, really. We all know that the most expected one would be the Lizard, which they’ve set up throughout the franchise, but there’s numerous other faces it could be — both liked and not-so-liked by fans. Some seem to think the best route would be for Carnage to be the villain, and have that carry over to the Venom spinoff movie that’s planned, but considering Venom is supposed to be a clean slate spinoff, it’d be much better if Carnage was saved for that project alone.
If there is one undoubted fail-proof in movies, it is that they inspire countless debates among their faithful and painfully stubborn fans. What’s the best war drama? Is it possible to pinpoint the best Pixar film? What’s the best Tom Hanks movie ever made: Big or Splash? The power of opinion has always been been an instant segway into conflict, even with the known fact that all have the right to their very own fair opinion — one of the true great mysteries of life. To help ignite these furious conflicts (who wants to stop them?!), Cinematical has created a tournament to determine the absolute greatest superhero movie of all time.
This event has already gotten underway, but it’s not too late for you to take part in choosing the best of the best. They use the popular college basketball tournament bracket method where you will vote one section at a time, beginning with top seeded movies like Spider-Man 2 and The Dark Knight against the low seeds like Blankman and Orgazmo and on from there!
The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon today is Superhero Blu-ray Collection for only $79.95 (that’s 62% off the list price of $208.75).
This 8-disc Blu-ray boxed set includes seven major (and relatively recent) superhero action films from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment: Spider-Man High Definition Trilogy (Spider-Man / Spider-Man 2 / Two-Disc Spider-Man 3), Ghost Rider (Extended Cut), Hellboy (Director’s Cut), Underworld (Unrated), and Underworld Evolution.
That’s a nice pick of movies right there. Now let’s do the math: $79.95 divided by 7 movies is about $11.42 each. The Spider-Man blu-ray trilogy is selling for $49.99 on its own and the other films are much more than $12 each, so this is a pretty sweet deal for Blu-ray, and for major blockbuster titles on Blu-ray at that.
