I'm sorry Dan Slott ruined it for you.  On a related note, I once asked him on a social media site why he put a racist caricature in a recent Fantastic Four comic and he blocked me.

Any reason? I've heard good things exclusively.

I can’t answer for him, but I’m assuming because it’s a stupid name. If only I had followed that line of thinking with Attack of the Clones. *sigh*

Fair enough, but it sounds like a book-cover-judgement. If you guys are unaware, the directors are Lorde and Miller. They basically ONLY take on directing projects that sound dumb and every single time I've been very impressed with them. Clone High (tv), Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, 21 and 22 Jump Street, The Lego Movie. Personally I think they've earned the benefit of the doubt when it comes to movies that sound "odd".

Credit where credit is due: the film was co-written by Phil Lord but directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman. Christopher Miller has nothing to do with the project as far as I know.

100% agreed on book cover judgments being silly. If someone doesn't want to see something for a reason like that, then they miss out.

Thanks for the correction!

I assumed it was just because the name Spider-Verse is from a comic crossover from some years back that he doesn't like.

Again, I can’t speak for him, but I think you guys are taking his hyperbolic statement too literally. I think he was merely commenting on a dumb title. If he has any interest in a spiderman movie, I’m sure he’d see it regardless of title if it is well-received. I, personally, do not.

^agree with above. He's just having a flippant dig at the title and how every cash-cow property is described as the something-verse nowadays. I don't think for a minute he really means he would actually not watch purely based on the title.

All good guys, I just like praising Lorde and Miller, and thought I had an excuse to do so.

I also like praising the Coen Bros, and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is refreshing and great and light and dark at the same time. It's more than a Western, and I recommend it.
