Personally, I love this as a News Network. Newspapers are a dying breed and if they want to introduce J. Jonah in the sequels as an important figure head in NYC, it makes sense that he would be head of a huge news network. Hell, Eddie Brock could still be their camera man, lol.
I disagree. This film is trying to put these characters in 2012. Newspapers are dying and just aren’t big anymore. But CNN, MSN, FOX NEWS, these are the news sources of today (well that and google)
I mean that’s like still wanting Clark Kent to change into Superman in a telephone booth that just don’t really exist anymore. If you’re setting your film 10-15 years ago, that’s one thing. But it’s another thing if it’s set in today’s world.
This film was never truly intended to appease the comic fans, but rather the general masses. To make it a financial success things we, the hard-core fans, know to be part of the Spider-man continuity have been changed to be more… modern. It’s all in the name of entertainment.
So it seems like they are turning Captain Stacey into J. Jonah Jameson in his beliefs that Spier-Man is a dangerous criminal masquerading as a super hero. I have a feeling this movie is gonna bite us in the butt.
