what if it stays small scale, just overseas
what if it's a bigger scale but also great
having opinions is great, jumping to conclusions like that can be a little toxic and does yourself as a viewer zero favors
You’re using that word, ‘toxic’, again. I don’t think anybody here was toxic.
Example of toxic: months after months of rude twitter commentary pointed towards Dan Slott
, man who just recently finished his Guinness record Spider-Man run (ten years) and who managed to turn Peter into a semi-Tony Stark character at one point, who ventured the globe in the above mentioned ‘Worldwide’ arc. Some people were pissed about the very notion of Spidey becoming anything other than a broke student from Queens. Some people didn’t want to give him a chance, they just posted toxic commentary, for months.
Was it the best arc in Spider-Man’s history? Not really, it was just fun, but one of his weakest.
Was it character breaking though? Not at all. He was still very much Peter Parker under that suit; later on even destroyed Parker Industries to help people.
The point is, I’m with you 100%: let artists create, let them have their artistic space. But also it’s perfectly fine to discuss things at every stage of production, like we did, especially if you care like Bacon
does. I don’t think he was being toxic towards this movie, just cautious around some ‘out there’ ideas.
Bacon, be lucky Spidey is going worldwide this time round, better than Cap fans last year, when Nick Spencer
gave them Hydra Cap. Was that a good story? Absolutely, but sometimes there’s only so much you can stretch a character before he breaks. Selina is marrying Bruce in ten days, after 80 years. As a huge fan of both Spidey and Batman, I always hope for the best and try to find the silver lining. As long as they’re essentially untouched.
