    I figured this would be a good time to brainstorm since the dvd is probably already in it's first stages of preparation. The goal is to come up with inventive ideas that you would like to see on the dvd, whether it be in the menu design, animation, special features, anything really. Given the wealth of info available on this charactor and the comics, the sky's the limit on what can be done.

    If anything, this thread could serve as a wishlist to make Columbia aware of what the fans of this great film would like to have included on what will surly be a referrance dvd all around.

    For me, the only thing I can think of that I would really love to have is a commentary track by Stan Lee himself, that would rock!

    Fire away guy's and gal's.

    [​IMG] My suggestion is a new score...Danny Elfman tweaked BATMAN and phoned it in...maybe add more snappy dialog to the film? Pick up the cut scenes of Spidey and J. Jonah trading barbs and reinserting them? Other than that...the film was pretty good...oh yeah...put in at the end credits the original 1967 cartoon theme..."Is he strong? Listen bud, he's got radioactive blood..." Ohhh...one more thing...give Toby some kind of reaction to having the love offer of his life handed tohim on a silver plate!

    How about something interesting and new, like pointing out the mistakes in the film with a director description and the clip. Many mistakes can be found here.
    That would be really neat!

    I would like to have some background described in regards to the comic books, Amazing Fantasy (Spider-Man's first ever appearance) and The Amazing Spider-Man comic - maybe a nice documentary that goes into some depth with Stan Lee, of course.

    CGI tests and concept art, so we can all see the much cooler Green Goblin designs which were abandoned in favor of the one we got [​IMG]
    A second commentary track with all of the stars, and hosted by Bruce Campbell. [​IMG]

    Theres gotta be extended and cut scenes with seamless branching.

    Frank, you have another vote for out-takes.

    There are a bunch of deleted scenes shot SPECIFICALLY for the DVD
    I saw the Spidey wall crawl test right after they shot it, when it was still just greenscreen. It rocked! That's when I knew how good this would be, because it was SO perfect

    You know, I was sitting in the theater listening to the opening credits thinking they were a total rip of Batman. When Danny Elfman's name came on the screen I was half surprised (only half because it obviously sounds like an Elfman score). He probably could have tried a bit harder on this one. I tend to really enjoy his scores. He seems to work best in concert with Tim Burton though.

    Every trailer should be on the DVD, particularly the WTC trailer.

    Hopefully we can see some of the training that Tobey and Willem went through.

    A history of the character in comics would be good too.

    If I were Columbia I'd get Kevin Smith and JMS to participate in a doc as they are in the process of revitalizing the comic books.

    Wouldn't be a bad thing to have a second commentary with Brian Michael Bendis, Kevin Smith, and JMS.

    How about a mock CGI stunt reel ala Jackie Chan with a CGI spidey getting punched out by the goons, missing his web casts and swinging into things really hard and sliding down comically. The CGI goblin terrorizing the tram car with a sign that says "This space for rent" or flying in the air writing "Hi Mom" in smoke from his glider. That kind of thing. [​IMG]

    In addition to many of the things suggested above, I'd like to see them present Spidey's complete origin story from Amazing Fantasy as an on-screen slide show.

    Regards,

    Joe

    I can just see Spidey missing and then cursing like a sailor and pushing the camera away in disgust. That or some accidental ripping of his suit when he's extra acrobatic.
