hi greg. i love your show of The Spectacular Spiderman.
So i just wanna know if you've gotten any data on the ratings for season 3?
if so i'd love to know how its doin
There are no ratings on Season 3 as there is no Season 3 for there to be ratings on.
Hey Greg why do you and other people always call the green goblin's comic look classic Halloween style the movie one armored and the ultimate one demonic, the ultimate one is monstrous but it's not demonic, the movie one is not Armored it's just a way of trying to reproduce the comics version, and the comics version is just classic, so i'm just asking why you guys just call it that? i'm just asking that?
Who exactly are these "you guys" you're referring to? I don't recall saying anything that would include me in that group. But in any case, you seem to be splitting hairs. For example, one person's monster is another person's demon. In this case you could view them as synonyms.
I have some more questions. 1. How old will Hutson live to be? 2. What is the year he will die?
I'm not revealing this stuff.
You stated Hobgoblin will be in season 3. Do you know who will voice the hobgoblin persona. I personally think Kevin Michael Richardson will do great. The voice he did for the Joker in Batman was incredible, and you do have him included on the show already so...Anyway can't wait for more Spectacular Spiderman.
We haven't discussed something THAT hypothetical.
One more I forgot to ask: How does the process of casting voice actors work? Do you have a specific actor in mind when a character is concieved? Is it an open audition process? Or does it vary from role to role?
We auditioned eleven roles at the beginning of the SpecSpidey process. After that, with the exception of Mark Allen, we didn't hold auditions, we just cast people. This usually involved a discussion between myself and voice director Jamie Thomason. And obviously, actor availability played a huge roll in whom we ultimately cast.
Me again, with just a few more Spidey questions:
1) Where/when/how did Tombstone get powers? I'm assuming he has powers (enhanced strength, durability, reflexes) (if this is Season 3/No comment territory, I understand).
2) In "Identity Crisis", where did Flash get a Spider-Man costume? How did he put it on with a toe-to-thigh cast?
3) How much does the average Mysterio machine cost? More specifically, how much money does Spidey burn through every time he destroys a robot or a homonculus?
4) How do you come up with story ideas? Is it like "It would be cool if..." or is it more like "This villain should show up" or "This facet of Peter/Spidey's life should be established"? Or does it vary?
5) Does popular television personality/presidential candidate Stephen Colbert exist in the universe of Spectacular Spidey?
1. No comment.
2a. At a costume shop. 2b. With difficulty and some ripping.
3. No idea.
4. It varies, but we build it. Most ideas are inspired by the source material and/or come out of character.
5. Is he public domain?
MI PREGUNTA ES LA SIGUENTE: HUBIERA SIDO POSIBLE QUE GOLIATH SE TRANSFORMARA EN HUMANO PARA ASI CASARSE CON ELISA Y ASI HACERSE REALIDAD SU SUEÃ'O COMO EN EL CAPITULO "PODRIA SER REALIDAD"? GRACIAS
My high school Spanish is pretty rusty...
"My question is the [?]: [??] posible that Goliath will be transformed to human for [??] with Elisa and [??] reality... ugh, I give up.
I'm afraid I can't be sure enough of your question to answer it well...
In a previous response you wrote, "I like to think we executed [The Spectacular Spider-Man Animated Series] well, but let's face it -- ANY Spidey show would do pretty well just by virtue of it being Spidey. I can't exactly take credit for the character's popularity. All I can do is strive to do him justice. It's for others to judge if we succeeded, though we succeeded well enough to satisfy me. I'm biased, of course, but my standards are pretty high."
In a very brief conversation I once had with Tom Defalco at a convention this year, he told me that it was his opinion that writers' particular runs with an established character come and go, but what the job of each writer is, regardless of the individual direction he or she wishes to take things, is to fully inhabit the character. I think this is in keeping with what you said. I just want you to know, my standards are pretty high as well and I think your show, as a portrayal of Mr. Peter Benjamin Parker, is a success no matter what the future holds.
Thanks. I appreciate it.
When the crimelords where fighting and attempting to call for backup why did Tombstone try calling for his Blackie? I mean Doc Ock called for Kraven and Silvermane tried to call Sable, why would he call a simple Bookie?
Blackie has many skills, including coordination of "talent".
Why do you only have story arks for The Spectacular Spider-Man and not single episodes.
We have both.
