First let me just say Spider-Man 2 was fucking awesome! Ok that’s out of my system. I hate to be back to my negative self here, but I have one problem to point out. Not really a problem even really. Just a thing I noticed. It’s the Spider-Man 2 Superman 2 connection. I was going to list this shit myself but I’m lazy and I found this instead over at the Penny Arcade forums:

Superman 2

  • Villains from the past come back to haunt Superman
  • Superman looses his powers because he no longer wants to be a superhero
  • Several scene feature him running down the street and ripping open his suit to reveal the insignia on his chest
  • Superman’s identity is compromised.
  • Superman’s love finds out his identity.
  • Superman reclaims his powers after realizing the world needs him
  • Superman is visited by a disembodied vision of his parental figures to discuss the importance of his powers.

Spider-Man 2

  • Villains from the past come back to haunt Spider-Man
  • Spider-Man looses his powers because he no longer wants to be a superhero
  • Several scene feature him running down the street and ripping open his suit to reveal the insignia on his chest
  • Spider-Man’s identity is compromised.
  • Spider-Man’s love finds out his identity.
  • Spider-Man reclaims his powers after realizing the world needs him
  • Spider-Man is visited by a disembodied vision of his parental figures to discuss the importance of his powers.

So again this isn’t a bad thing. The second Superman movie was the best of that series. It works on so many levels. Why not pay homage (steal) to that great movie? And at least Sam Raimi is a smart enough guy to steal from the good movies. And Don’t get me wrong Spider-Man 2 has a lot going on. I’m not saying it’s a carbon copy of the Superman movie. It’s just that a certain recipe was used in making the flick. And it’s a good thing for all of us that enjoy these kinds of movies.
