Yesterday, this image of a tryptych poster advertising The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released.
As you can surmise from my post, I am not happy with it... at all.
When the first images of Jamie Fox's hooded Electro started making the rounds, I was very "meh". When the "face-off pic" of him and Spidey together with his rubberized costume debuted, I was feeling much more hopeful as the design closely resembles the Ultimate Electro look.
Since then I have been dying to get a glimpse of the Rhino and the rumored appearance of The Green Goblin! Now that I have... I really wish I hadn't. "How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways;"
1.) The Rhino: Has the design team ever even seen a pic of The Rhino?!? My guess is no, or he wouldn't be looking like Pyramid Head's robotic fuckin' dog!!! It doesn't remotely resemble the comic book Rhino, much less a real Rhino!!! There had damn well better be a guy wearing a Rhino suit sitting in that trainwreck.
2.) The Green Goblin: Have we not learned from the sins of the past? You'd think that considering all of the "Power Ranger" comments from the first Tobey Maguire movie, and the even more deplorable "snowboarding" new goblin from the third, that Marc Webb would take this opportunity to give us all the goblin we deserved! But no, the downward design spiral continues with this asshole in a flightsuit... with gangreen of the face... riding a Wii balance board.
Honestly, I am so disgusted by this, that I might not even bother going to see it. I don't think I've EVER said that about any super hero movie in public, and this is coming from a guy who was cautiously optimistic about Batman & Robin!
