Bruce Campbell says Spider-Man 4 will start filming in January, and that he’s going to have a major part. Whether this means he’s actually up for one of the villains — I think everyone agrees having him be Mysterio would be as awesome as it is brilliant — or he’s just going to play a role where he “defeats” Peter Parker again remains to be seen. I imagine it’s the latter, but man, the former would go a long way in getting the horrible taste of Spider-Man 3 out of my mouth.
Speaking of Spidey 3, someone has edited out the crap in the film to create the perfect cut… which ends up being about 5 seconds. Not a frame is wasted, and it says everything that the actual movie did in two hours. And still leaves a horrible taste of failure in your mouth. (Via /Film and Great White Snark)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
