Spiderman REALLY loves Mary Jane!

Today, amazingly, the pile of free Metro newspapers weren't gone by the time I got off the train so I picked one up for the ride back in the afternoon. There in the lifestyle section my eye caught this little article that made me go 'awwwwwwwwwww':

Raimi [note: director of Superman movies] Oblivious to 'Spider-Man' Romance.

[english link] [greek link]

Call me an incurable romantic and a silly-nilly, but I love it when on-screen romances come to life. Spiderman is my favorite superhero because he sounds feasible (stop rolling your eyes). Imagine it: Genetically tampered spider bites innocent kid, transmits spider characteristics to human, young male starts spurting webs but retains human (preferably good-looking) features and makes the world a better place. Granted, a messier one with all them webs, but safer nonetheless. Could. Happen.

Anyway, I hope those kids are happy together.

Ok, when I first saw the title of your post I thought you were saying that Spiderman smokes marijuana.

Not to burst your bubble, but I don't think those two are dating anymore. I actually think he has impregnated and/or married someone else.

I don't know about Spiderman being the only believable one. I think Batman is semi-believable.

I saw her first! And I've had a Spiderman tattoo for longer than either of them has walked the planet. Seriously. ;-)

Melusina, Bu, bu... but, the english news link is so fresh, printed only a couple of days ago.
Oh, well! That's Hollywood for ya!

OK, Batman could happen too, I mean, he really didn't have any built-in super forces, just money and a lot of kinky gadgetry, right?

Rick, A Spidy tattoo? You are way cool!
