@RichardT1977 @TM2-Megatron I'm not normally one to pull the Ruined Forever card but I care less than zip about anything involving the 2017 Power Rangers movie! They screwed it up worse than Bay past DoTM and a Mastodon has four legs not six! While I'm on this mini rant anyone remember the scans of the Super Sentai Mecha book from a while back? Would it be against the rules to ask if anyone knows where to find the new updated book scanned? I really want the Concept Art for ideas.

@  RichardT1977 : (21 April 2018 - 08:22 PM)

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 10:04 PM)

@Sabrblade Vulture tends to fare poorly as his own boss. Working for a great version of Doc Ock ain't a bad gig... and I did ask if about "bad" as opposed to "not the best". ;)

@  Plokatron : (20 April 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Egon1982 No my friend Mutator Spiders as in get caught in their web and you are mutated into a even more animalistic creature than you were. Hordika were Half Sentient beings half Wild animal and unlike Spiderman it affected each race slightly differnt with Toa being of a similar mutation to each other. My guess for Spiderman is he would become more spider like but with a inside skeletal structure hmm wonder what Visorak Venom would do to CNA make Dinobot Predacon like monsters or something wild?!

@  Paladin : (20 April 2018 - 04:15 PM)

compared to the "youth-sucking" gimmick from the other series? BIG step up.

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 03:57 PM)

@Otaku: What about that show's take on Vulture? He had potential at first but he eventually just settled into being a lackey rather than his own boss.

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:44 PM)

Did anyone else thought Thunder in Big Trouble in Little China when he was inflating looked like a garbage pail kid before he blew up into salad? I always thought that since seeing the movie in theaters at age 5. 

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:25 PM)

Mutator spiders as in man-spider?

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 11:06 AM)

Shocker was a pretty good villain in The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series. Wait, does that count since I can't think of a bad take on any character from that series? ;)

Ned Leeds/Lee was Asiatic in Greg Weisman's "Spectacular Spider-Man" series.

Meh. That's probably only because we never had the Hobgoblin properly show up.

Peter's friend is Ned Leeds, a fellow Bugle reporter from the comics (and rival for the affections for Betty Brant) who was framed as being the original Hobgoblin (pre- Jason Macendale, the most well-known version) and murdered by assassins before the truth was revealed.  So, basically, he's just a good guy.

 

Okay. I didn't know who it was. What does Flash Thompson look like in this?

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Again, I don't look at this actor and think that he's a perfect choice to play Flash Thompson. You may say race isn't important to his character but being a high school football jock is, and he just doesn't have the right build or look. Is anyone going to defend the choice and say the role hasn't been mis-cast? They can't just bring in any random actor to play the role of any random character.

Nobody thought Heath "Brokeback Mountain" Ledger could play a good Joker, either.

 

That said, everybody was defending Jessie "Zombieland" Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and we saw how that trainwreck turned out. So it's 50/50.

I think Flash Thompson will be in the half the time it doesn't work. I do think some actors are typecast to a certain type of role so its hard to imagine them doing other kind of roles they haven't done before, but I don't even know Flash Thompson's actor or what he is capable of so all I have to go on is his appearance and from that alone, I just don't get the Flash Thompson vibe. It could be that its a case of same name different character for a different universe like so many Transformers characters are different in Michael Bay's movies compared to the the character of the same name in the 80s (like Skids). Although I don't hold comic book movies to having to be completely 100% accurate to the comic books they are based on, I do expect them to be mostly accurate. More so than I do with  modern and old Transformers characters.

It's high school. There's plenty of jocks who aren't huge at that age. Also, these kids appear to be at somekind of boarding school (Peter is roomies with Ned'), so everybody may be somewhat of an academic, and even the jocks may not all be hulking masses. Also, in Queens/Brooklyn/Manhattan these days, it's not unusual for non-nerd kids to dress up like hipsters.

Basically, that kid could easily be a Flash in that kind of school in today's NYC.

Flash Thompson has two major attributes

 

1) Jerk (overall, but especially to Peter)

2) Fan of Spider-man (which makes 1 all the more hilarious)

 

This actor doesn't fit the "classic" comic archetype but that doesn't necessarily mean that he will be bad or that the role was miscast.

 

That said, everybody was defending Jessie "Zombieland" Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and we saw how that trainwreck turned out. So it's 50/50.

 

 

It's actually 75/25 when you factor in Leto's Joker.

I blame the Lex Luthor situation more on a bad script and direction. His quirkiness was interesting. Jolly Ranchers and peeing in jars was just gross.

Three. The third being tough guy highschool football star who gets all the girls. That's his number one main attribute.

 

Which doesn't support your agenda on why this actor makes for a believable or appropriate Flash Thompson so I see why you neglected to list it.

 

 

This actor doesn't fit the "classic" comic archetype but that doesn't necessarily mean that he will be bad or that the role was miscast.

 

I see "miscast" is now syonymous with "equal opportunities".  You don't look like anything the character from the original source material looks like? Come and audition anyway! You'll very likely get the role!

Flash hasn't been the "no. 1 football star who gets all the girls" in decades, he's been a soldier recovering from PTSD, a history of failed relationships, and struggling to control the Venom symbiote.

 

So you don't seem to get "what he's all about" as much as you seem to think.


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

I'm confused... I thought Homecoming was focusing on the highschool days of teenager Peter Parker and his friends, not a movie that has decades and decades of backstory and character development that the modern day Flash Thompson has in the comics. Huh. Homecoming has more relation to the very first Spiderman comics, not the present comics.

Man, I heard this wasn't even set in the 60s. I just can't relate with these comics at all, so much for source material.

Seriously though. I have nephews in the 15/16 age range who are in sports, wrestling and football specifically. They are VERY similarly built to Tony Revelori. There's nothing wrong with the casting unless you're expecting to see someone who looks 25+ and a bodybuilder.

It really wasn't. It was tiresome and grating. Especially the fact he apparently knew who Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent were with no prior set up or explanation. And don't even try the Darkseid excuse - because how would Darkseid know? For that matter why would he even care?

 

EDIT: As for the actual topic though, I'm willing to wait and see before casting judgement on Flash. Given the Machiavellian nature of Disney/Marvel contracts, I'm sure even at this point the Execs are already looking ahead to future Agent Venom movies.
