The Russos Weigh In On Their Realistic And Grounded Take On The Amazing Spider-Man #Marvel #SpiderMan... https://t.co/tgXxvOGeIa— ComicBookMovie.com (@ComicBook_Movie) January 9, 2016
So yesterday the Russo Brothers did an interview about how "grounded" and "realistic" their approach to Spider-Man would be. I couldn't help offering some tips on how a realistic Spidey story would go.
- A realistic Spider-Man? So, a kid is bitten by a spider, gets no powers, and struggles with poverty?
- His widow aunt can't afford their bills, so Peter gets a second job. They're evicted anyway.
- Peter photographs himself as an elusive vigilante. Daily Bugle won't call him back and he winds up with three reblogs.
- Mary Jane swipes left.
- Rich evil Norman Osborn dons a goblin mask and terrorizes the city. Pundits wonder when he'll run for president.
@Wiswell Continued funding of his secret projects is assured thanks to generous campaign contributions to both parties. #RealisticSpiderman— Keith Manuel (@KeithAManuel) January 9, 2016
- While Peter is at a wrestling show, his uncle is shot. Naturally he blames poor standard of living and NRA lobbyists.
- Boy genius Peter develops liquid steel webbing technology. A troll swoops his patent and sues him.
- Doctor Octopus is a Podcatcher knock-off app that fills Peter's phone with malware.
- A sexy cat burglar is tearing up the city. Peter, who has crushing debt and no powers, never meets her. The end.
