How Spider-Man 3 should have ended

How Spider-Man 3 should have ended

Don't get me wrong, I still love the movie. The whole franchise, actually. I think I have figured out how the movie would have worked better, had a better end battle, and would have surely been an automatic green light to what could have been our Spider-Man 4. Of course, a lot of the problem here was the inclusion of Venom at the end, so a lot of the solution will come from kicking Venom out of the movie.

Ooooh, Venom. I am still amazed at how they could get Venom's looks so spot-on, but entirely ruin the character, all of this at the same time.

Had they kept the black suit until the end of the movie, had Spidey and Goblin Harry kicking Sandman's sandy butt 2-on-1, and kept the church-scene where the symbiote meets Eddie for an after-credits scene, for a tease of Venom in Spider-Man 4. Right there, they could have went big and have Venom the main bad guy for a whole new trilogy, similar to Magneto in X-Men, with other villains during the three movies.

I think having no Venom for the end scene gives Spider-Man the privilege to battle in a different suit, just like Iron Man battles with different suits in the movies. It makes him more aggressive and I think aggressivity is welcomed when you have to face a giant man made out of sand. His aggressivity could also be the reason for Harry's death, wich would give Peter another reason to question his alter-ego (and shocks the hell out of you, Peter killing Harry, accidentally !). Finally, he decides to get rid of the symbiote, in the church, after the credits. It also gives him the opportunity to FINALLY KEEP HIS MASK ON. Am I the only one who got mad because they always had to tear the mask ? I know, to show the emotions... Still, I want to see Spider-Man's face, not Peter's. Also, the exclusion of Venom means that Mary Jane does not get kidnapped ONCE MORE. Can't he just want to stop the bad guy, without having to be lured to the villains with a red headed chick ?

Given how much of an impact it would have on Peter to kill his best-friend because of a suit, maybe they should have toned down the "Peter being a douche" previously to this ending, wich means no emo Peter, no dance scene (although I thought it was just funny).

So there you have it. My vision of how the movie franchise that got me into superhero movies should have ended. Kinda sad to think how cool was Spider-Man 2, and how it all ended. But hey, it's not all bad, we still got rid of Topher Grace !

Call me an idiot but there was a post scene?

avengers72 no, there was no post-credit scene in Spider-Man 3. But if they would have made it similar to what I described, if there would have been one, I think it would have fit a lot better, and with that kind of hook right at the end, people automatically want another one, because they feel another storyline was started in that scene. Like they did with Spider-Man 2. I can't remember if it was post-credit, or right before the credits, but when I saw Harry talking to his father's reflection, and then discovering the Goblin equipment, I already couldn't wait for the next movie !

I guess today, we're good with The Amazing Spider-Man. I really loved that movie, and I didn't care that we got an hour-long origin story. Peter's origin story is still cool, so I don't mind having it again a decade later. I think it's going to be a good opportunity for Sony to not make the previous mistakes, and now that we got the chance to recast Eddie Brock, I hope they get it right this time. They're already fixing previous mistakes from the first trilogy by having the web-shooters, Gwen Stacy, possibly having a Venom movie so that his character is less likely to be ruined in another movie.

I liked the whole Raimi's Spiderman trilogy very much(well except the emo-dance, which I just skip when ever watching DVD/BR), but I was just glad that they didn't make Spiderman 4 and that was because of 2 reasons:

1) 3 movies made complete, solid trilogy with no lose ends, all parts of the story completed(Peter getting over his uncles death, Spiderman achieving his status as the hero of NYC, Peter and MJ finally together in normal relationship, Harry's vendetta past...). This version of Spiderman-universe could have been ruined by new storylines.

2)When I heard that they were making Spiderman 4, I was worried that how long can they keep this up. I didn't want the franchises to turn into cheap, cheesy, assembly line-made movie series, wirt no good plots and badly done character represents.

So I'm glad that they quit when they were ahead. I also knew that, with a solo-hero, the reboot was going to happen at somepoint, so I was pleased that they saved some of the good villains(like Lizard,Vulture,Electro,Rhino,Scorpion) for the new instalment.

*with no good plots

You're not wrong at all. I'm glad about the reboot too. I remember when I first saw SM3, I was convinced Venom didn't die in the explosion. I thought the symbiote had wrapped him up before the explosion could kill him, and had simply been blown away from the explosion so we couldn't see it, and that he was going to be back for Spider-Man 4. I had my hopes high !
