If you’ve been following along, you should be aware of the Green Goblin’s unceremonious reveal via a poster sprawled across one of Vegas’ many cavernous hallways. You also see the pile of polygons that will become the Rhino, but what we’re focused on is the fact Goblin is in the movie, and his debut was so… “oh hey Green Goblin is in this.”
Three villains in the second movie, including the hero’s main nemesis? Seems a bit… busy. And unadvised given how this tactic played out in Spider-Man 3. As for the look… well he’s not wearing a mask, so we’ll avoid SM1’s Power Rangers vibe, which is a plus. I guess I don’t hate it, just need to see it in action via the trailer on 12/5.
Wasn’t a fan of ASM, but with promo images like the one above – and the suggestion this is all leading to a Sinister Six movie – has me cautiously optimistic. My main issue with ASM was this pervasive sense of obligation, not a desire to tell a story or even make a slam-bang blockbuster. Just checking a box so they can keep the rights to themselves while they figure out what to do next.
And maybe this is the first step towards that master plan?
