Topher Grace has to be Electro

All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

if they were going to make him more eddie brock like, they'd force him to gain 200 pounds.

it has to be tied into the character somehow- makes more sense if it was electro since, electro's costume was always yellow...

and they're probably not going to use the crazy lightning bolt mask.

oh... who knows.

it'll kick ass.

raimi always pulls through. this will be amazing, no matter what. if he uses venom, he'll make it work.

I refuse to believe they'd just paint the Goblin mask yellow.



Sure they would also add glitter. Everybody loves sparkles.

You guys are nuts. Electro's gonna have NO mask. He'll have his bleach blond locks, and a denim jacket with "ELECTRO" bedazzled across the back.

I was just asking a question about the wager amount. By no means do I have a grand to spend on this. I mean I'm a web guy living in India making 5 rupees a day.

I'm still not convinced it's even Electro, I still think The Chameleon, Rhino and Venom are possibilities.

I think if Haden Church is bulking up like they said, then Rhino is on the table.

I'm still hoping the Eliza Dushku 'Black Cat' rumors turn out to be true.

That'd be so great.

The Spidey/Black Cat love story from the mid-80's, when he took his mask off, and she couldn't handle knowing who he was, she only wanted spiderman...

that was awesome.

Yeah I'd like to see Black Cat and Dushku would be okay, give me Scarlett or that Russian girl from his Parkers Appartment block any day of the week.

What if Topher is playing the younger version of The Vulture, that would be fucking hilarious.

Topher and Haden Church are both well known and liked for their comic delivery. Perhaps that is the clue you need to finish the puzzle.

Christ no. If I thought that I would kill myself.

Actually I wasn't thinking of anyone... I was just trying to sound cryptic and in the know.

But what I said has merit, no?

So much that i've been scanning through my old spidey books, trying to find something that we could all be missing.

i mean, spidey's known for his humor, not his enemies.

BUT, you're right, and knowing Raimi, I have a feeling he's going to want to play with this one (if it is going to be his last)... So he's probably going to turn the "raimi" up a bit...

But who are they playing?!

I always thought of Sandman as a sad character, and Electro, just pathetic (but could be used for laughs).

It's not like there's a huge pool of great villains in Spiderman. Hydro man.... Hydro man... he's like sandman, but water.

Doc. Ock.
Sandman
The Vulture
Green Goblin
Mysterio
Chamelion
Kraven
Electro
The Lizard
Rhino
Morbius
Hydro Man
Shocker
Hobgoblin
Venom
Carnage
Black Cat
Scorpion

That's what I grabbed looking through books... add to it if i'm missing any.

I don't care if he is old, I would kill for Tom Selleck as Kraven.

Out of all those listed, the only ones that interest me are Vulture, Mysterio, Kraven, Electro, Lizard, Rhino and Sandman.

I'd actually argue that the list you put forth is one of the best rogues gallery of any superhero or team going. That's a big reason why I can see Spider-Man potentially growing to 6 films, because there are that man A-list villains in his world. X-Men is my number 2 for best villains.

Good call, Tom Selleck would be awesome.

What about Scorpion?

Kinda makes sense... The whole JJ creating Scorpion to get Spiderman. It would fit into what Raimi's been doing.

Maybe Topher plays Scorpion before JJ engineers him, then T.H. plays him afterwards.

Only if Spiderman, Ice Man and Firestar had that kickass apartment... you know, when they pressed a lever and it got all high tech.

I am thinking we are going to get two villains. I think the rumors about both the actors playing the same villains a la Chameleon are speculative at best. We know we are not going to get Lizard. I think the shout out of having Dr. Connors in the second movie is as close as we will come. And Kraven, who I personally think is a cool villain, would probably be pretty cheesy on screen. So Rhino, Sandman, Electro, Mysterio and Vulture.

My prediction: Electro and Sandman.

Rhino would be too difficult and expensive. It would have to be CGI 100% of the time or it would just look dumb. Mysterio? WTF? I am a huge Spidey fan and I don't even remember the dome headed fuck. Vulture? Too hard to make all those areal (sp?) fights look real.

Electro has an easy power to render... and Sandman has a power that would be bitchin' cool to see in real life. PLUS with these two, we get a fun scene were Spidey sets up Electro to freeze Sandman into glass by accident.

Quick, name the last movie that had two name stars play the same character and neither one of them is actually the "official" look of the character. Sounds like a waste of a billing to me.

Control of the zone for a day? And what would I get if I win? Have you fly here to Austin (on your dime) and be my man servant for 24 hours?

See, there's probably nothing I have that you could possibly want besides money...

I don't really have too many hard-to-find-geek-treasures, but here's what I was able to find:

For irony's sake...
A TPB of Ultimate Fantastic Four: The Fantastic, autographed by Millar?

Blueprints to the spacecraft of 2001: A Space Odyssey?

The Astounding Science Fiction Anthology edited by John W. Campbell, published 1952, the first such collection of Campbell's
run on Astounding....

Anything or should I keep looking? Point me in a direction here, what are you collecting/interested in?
