I’m not in the mood for a long blog entry today, so allow me simply to echo Orac’s thoughts on the debut of the trailer for Spider-Man 3. It does, indeed, appear that it will rock.
The feature villain this time around is Sandman. I always liked him in the comic books. As I recall, he shows up for the first time in issue four of The Amazing Spider-Man. Spider-Man defeated hm by sucking him up into a vacuum. I trust they will come up with something less hokey for the movie.
Of course, Sandman later had a run-in with Hydro Man. The two inadvertently got fused together to form a gigantic, listless, mud monster. An amusing plot twist, and one which led to a memorable cover (if not a memorable story). Somehow Sandman and Hydro-Man eventually managed to separate themselves, but Sandman was so traumatized by the experience that he went straight for a time. Somehow I don’t think that will make it into the movie, however.
See you Monday!
