Bang, bang, development process. Bang, bang.
Apparently Sony hates the idea of the Vulture being the villian. But Raimi wants the Vulture because he’s a weirdo who dresses in bizarre suits. Fashion-sense aside, they should listen to Raimi. Especially after the poop burrito that was Spider-Man 3. Granted, the Vulture sucks on paper. But if you leave Raimi to his own devices, he’ll certainly find a way to make the character work on screen. And if he doesn’t, Sony should be allowed to huck a tennis ball at him as hard as they can. That’s how we settle things where I’m from. (IESB)
