Shouldn't we be at a point where we'd get a superhero movie deconstruction?

But he changed the web to organic because it was "better". What? There's no objective gain from changing that, lol, he just did it because reasons.

I'm more thinking about moments like where, as the glider is coming to impale Norman, time freezes and even rewinds a bit so Dafoe can have an "oh s***" moment. His goofy New Yorker "you mess with one of us, you mess with all of us" scenes probably fall somewhere in there too.

Or the fact that the horror series he started his career on decided to have a cowardly male character turn out to be the "last girl" and the sequels went comedy.

Raimi doesn't necessarily deconstruct superheroes, but his whole quirky style is meant to poke fun at film tropes and keep things from ever being fully serious or dramatic.

Blankman and Hancock def count. Even Meteor Man.

I think only the Donner Superman movies played it consistently straight. Even the Adam West show was winking at the audience. Then Wonder Woman, but Patty said she based it on Donner anyway.


Raimi Spider-man?


Raimi's directorial style is so deliberately cheesy you could argue he's spent his whole career making deconstructions of movies.


While Raimi definitely uses tons of camp and humor, it never struck me as him attempting to parody or comment on the genre. At least in terms of what I can remember at the moment. Like JJJ was definitely comedic relief, but it was also a pretty faithful recreation of the character.


Well, Spider-Man himself is a deconstruction of superheroes at the time. Most were world traveled, highly confident men of action, and also conveniently wealthy or at least not worrying about money. And Spider-Man is a scrawny kid who battles his doubts and fears as much as villainy and is perennially broke and struggling and it makes him sad and mad.

I agree with all this. It blew my mind hen I first watched director commentary and special features for The Evil Dead movies. I'd always thought Ash was heroic and badass and a bit goofy(I saw Army of Darkness first) but to the creators Ash was a bumbling idiot who basically lucked into things lol.

If Snyder's Watchmen came out today, I think it would fare far better than it did back then.
I'm hoping for a Justice Pals movie; y'know, the Avengers parody team from Dexter's Lab.

Maybe if he had the knowledge obtained from MoS, BvS and JL's reviews.

Miracle Man would be like a blood thirsty version of Man of Steel I guess, lmao.

Don’t you mean more bloodthirsty?

Maybe Incredibles 2 will do some kind of deconstruction thing.

I also feel like mentioning here that I've wanted a Tom Strong movie or show for a long time.
Keep on chooglin'.
