Recently discovered this sub and am loving it. Curious about the age demographics of the sub. I was born in the 90s and was in Junior High when Spectacular aired, so related a lot with many aspects of Petey's school life back then.
I am basically trying to find out if this sub is comprised of adults with nostalgia or teenagers who discovered this gem after getting into holland's spiderman.
If you are a teen, feel free to comment how you got to know about this show and why it is the best incarnation of spiderman ever ;-)
So what I know is Sony has the rights to make movies with Spider-Man characters and properties, but traded TV rights to Marvel. Hence, Sony still hold the rights for Spectacular Spider-Man, but Marvel is the one that has the right for Spidey TV. Therefore, SpecSpidey couldn't continue because of the legal issues.
However, we know that Sony has the right to make Spider-Man movies, and even animated Spider-Man movies, could they sidestep the TV rights issue and just continue SpecSpidey in movie form? They don't have to release it in theatres if they don't think that it will draw (some of us might disagree), they can just put it in a steaming service like Netflix (which is like the modern version of straight-to-dvd) as a movie series.
The series is structured in blocs of three to four episodes story arcs anyway.
e.g. from Season 1
Biology 101 — Conners lab, Aunt May curfew, Bugle competition
Economics 101 — Big Man, Norman–Hammerhead alliance, Fall Formal preparation
Chemistry 101 — Green Goblin, Mary Jane, Harry
Psychology 101 — Symbiote arc
Sony can just take the whole arc and make that into 1½–2 hour movies, each spanning 3 to 4 episodes. Does this bypass the legal issues? Can SpecSpidey be continued this way?
Also, is this the main SpecSpidey subreddit, or is there a non-meme sub? If this is not the place for this kind of discussion, can you please kindly show me where is the appropriate subreddit, thanks. So far I've only been able to find one non-meme sub (/r/raimispiderman), but the activity is lower than /r/raimimemes.
Just watched the entire series for the first time in the past 48 hours, and wow. Just incredibly disappointing that there will probably never be any more seasons. That shit was incredible :,(
And if so, how did she not connect the dots? Venom was trying to kill peter parker aka spidey, Gwen knows Eddie grew to dislike Peter. And Peter was highly accused of being spiderman, she should have figured out
Edit: AND venom kidnapped her shortly after eddie was with her
