NOTES

  • Jake Gyllenhal almost replaced Tobey McGuire as Spider-Man in Spider-Man 2

  • The Indian version has all cuss words muted and liquor blurred

  • Peter's suitcase has the letters "BFP" on it. This refers to Benjamin Franklin Parker, Peter Parker's Uncle Ben whose death motivated him to become Spider-Man.

  • Tom Holland wanted Jason Momoa as Kraven the Hunter in the movie.

    • Who could play Kraven?

  • In the film, Spider-Man mentions Captain Marvel, which marks the first time a MCU character referred to Carol Danvers by that name.

  • According to storyboard artist Jeffrey Henderson, Mysterio was supposed to be one of the villains in Sam Raimi's canceled Spider-Man 4. He was to be played by cult icon Bruce Campbell, a childhood friend and longtime collaborator of Raimi's, who had made cameos in all three Spider-Man films.

  • Peter's passport lists August 10th as his birthday. Spider-Man's first appearance was in Amazing Fantasy #15, released August 10th, 1962, in real life Tom Holland's birthday is June 1st.

  • This's the first Marvel-Avengers crossover movie without a cameo by Stan Lee, co-creator of the MCU.

  • It was reported that Matt Damon turned down the villain role.

  • While Hydro-Man is not technically in the film, Flash Thompson is researching the aquatic terror and brings up an article regarding science experiments done on a sailor named Morris Bench, who is Hydro-Man in the comics.

  • When the Elementals appear, there are various signs that refer to Spider-Man's comic history:

  • a boat sign reads "ASM212" during the water Elemental attack. The water villain Hydro-Man (Morris Bench) made his debut in "Amazing Spider-Man #212" (January 1981).

  • a car bears a license plate reading "463" during the earth Elemental attack. The earth villain Sandman (Flint Marko) made his debut in "Amazing Spider-Man #4", September 1963.

  • a car bears a license plate reading "2865 SEP" during the fire Elemental attack. The fire villain Molten Man (Mark Raxton) made his debut in "Amazing Spider-Man #28", September 1965.

On The Subject: Of John Wick

An ex-hit-man comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that killed his dog and took everything from him. Obviously this means we are breaking down the John Wick films and the OTS crew decided there favorite characters, moments and deaths. We also decide what doesn't work in a nearly perfect action movie!

John, is a man of focus. Commitment. Sheer will. Something you know very little about. I once saw him kill three men in a bar… with a pencil. With a fuckin' pencil. Suddenly one day he asked to leave. It was over a woman, of course. So I made a deal with him. I gave him an impossible task. A job no one could have pulled off. The bodies he buried that day laid the foundation of what we are now. And then, my son, a few days after his wife died… you steal his car, and kill his fuckin' dog.

The Horror Paradox: Why Do We Love Scary Movies?

It is Thursday. That means Geeks Rising. On today's vlog, I decided to explore the reasons that we enjoy submitting ourselves to scary movies. It does not make sense why we voluntarily enter a situation that we are almost guaranteed a stressful time. Therefore, I try to get to the bottom of it.

You may notice that this is a shorter supplemental article than usual. I am attempting to remove fluff from my writing. It also does not make sense for me to provide all the information that can be acquired from the video above. ENJOY!
