Our mission at SAW is to foster conversations about this thing we all love (or love to hate): film/TV. Many of our features are designed with you in mind. Your opinions, to be more to the point. You have ’em. We want to hear ’em.
Question of the Day (QOTD) is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a film/TV-related question that we put to you, the reader. The comments section below is like the feedback box at work; except, in this example, we actually read what you write and care about what you have to say.
Comic Book Month at SAW is winding down, but not before we ask a couple more QOTD this week. The term “hot take” has become a popular phrase online (specifically on social media) where someone will say “hot take:” following by an opinion that is usually not shared among the majority. With everyone’s tastes being different, especially regarding comic book adaptations, I thought it would be cool to see what sort of hot takes the screenagers have when it comes to our favorite costumed vigilantes.
So, the question I ask today is: what is your comic book movie hot take?
I’ll go first. I have a few, but I’m not sure they are the hottest of takes. The one I’ve chosen though is… “Hot take: The Amazing Spider-Man suit is actually great in hindsight and should not have been replaced.”
When the movie first came out, I was like everyone else in calling the suit “ugly” or “a downgrade.” However, upon a recent rewatch, I found myself liking how different it was from Maguire’s and Holland’s suits. I like the darker colors and the yellow lenses. I sort of wish this was the suit Garfield wore when he returned in No Way Home. It’s not as bad as everyone says it is and I’d put it above his Amazing Spider-Man 2 suit and some of Holland’s Spidey suits (like the Iron Spider and Night Monkey suits).
So what about you, screenagers? Let’s hear your comic book movie hot takes!
I’ll see you in the trenches.
