2022.01.22 19:59 The_Second_Worst I read 3 drafts of the original Spider-Man (2002) screenplays
David Koepp has a few scripts of Spider-Man floating around that lead up to the final shooting script, which still has some major deviations from the final product. The earliest one I read from 2000 is interesting because the whole storyline is different. James Cameron is known for having a wild Spider-Man scriptment and the biological webs started there, but there's a progression in David Koepp's that show what kind of notes he must have received and where he started to focus on the story.
Going chronologically, the first David Koepp screenplay had Doc Ock and Green Goblin as the villains. They worked together and their origins were tied in the same explosion at Oscorp. They only become the antagonists halfway through the story.
David Koepp first approached Peter as a very nerdy teenager in the vein of many teen comedies at the time. It has the freeze frame voiceover and everything. Flash is a cliche bully and MJ is a huge ditz who doesn't recognize Peter even though they live next door to each other. It's hard to believe this screenplay is real with the way Peter and MJ's relationship develops. They have no rapport for the majority of the narrative.
The field trip scene is the same. Harry is just meeting Peter for the first time. The wet dream metaphor is present with Peter waking up with sticky web fluid over himself. MJ's poor domestic situation has more scenes. She has a 3 year old brother.
Peter says Uncle Ben is a good father but Uncle Ben corrects him that he's his "Uncle." There’s questions of who Peter’s parents really were and Uncle Ben brushes off the question and says there was a plane crash. They bring up Aunt May’s medicine, which is dropped in future versions.
There's actually web shooters in this version for Peter to control his powers. There are explicit POV shots of Spider-Man swinging and a fourth wall break of Peter webbing the camera. We know we get POV shots in The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) but this shows someone was thinking about it back then.
The screenplay is lighter and darker. Green Goblin actually wants to kill Harry for a little prolicide. To the Goblin, Harry represents the downfall of Oscorp.
We still have the hiding and blood scene with Peter and Norman. Aunt May is attacked. Peter gives up on being Spider-Man. For the climax, similar to issue #26, Peter has to buy a costume from a store. Doctor Octopus hates Osborn and wants him dead so it's sort of a 3 way battle at the end. The fight still happens at the bridge but starts at Oscorp. Norman Osborn lives and is taken into custody while Doc Ock gets away for the sequel.
The second "shooting script" screenplay is close to the movie but has different subplots. A lot of people think Spider-Man should be doing more in the middle, and in this one, he is. One of Norman's board members, Fargas, wasn't killed in the festival attack and Spider-Man protects him. This also serves as the scene where Peter gets cut for Norman to find out his real identity later. I think Fargas's subplot is interesting to read, but it's messy because he survives and Goblin has to switch goals. This external kind of obstacle to keep Fargas safe makes the story lose a kind of focus when reading it.
Goblin wants to start wars and have Oscorp become the most powerful military supplier. They want Spider-Man to help him and see that Peter takes his photos. Norman knows him. Goblin says that no one can suspect that Norman is Goblin, so that's why Goblin asks Jameson where is the photographer. Jameson always defended Peter and didn't reveal his location in all the scripts. As you can see, the order of the scenes are switched between this draft and what would be the final shooting script.
At Aunt May’s prayer scene, Green Goblin says “Amen, Sister."
The closing lines are, "Can’t say I didn’t warn you. The story of my life is not for the faint of heart. Like the man said, it’s hard to be a saint in the city. But whatever life holds in store for me, I now accept. I will never forget these words again: With great power comes great responsibility. This is my gift. It is my curse. Who am I? Baby, I’m Spider-Man."
The final final shooting script is very close to the movie. Spider-Man has more quips and the Thanksgiving scene has Peter following MJ out to talk. The final scene is at the Daily Bugle with Jameson and Brant talking about where Peter is. There's little differences in dialogue that add depth to all the characters.
The scene I want to talk about the most is the Thanksgiving scene. Once Norman realizes Peter is Spider-Man, Peter's spider sense turns on but he doesn't know why. Now that No Way Home is out, we can see a little seed in an early screenplay where Peter is confused about the personality switch. Although, Peter still only realizes Norman is the Green Goblin at the end of the film.
There's a lot more differences. A big takeaway is the web shooters stayed as an idea for a long time in the year 2000 before they filmed for the first half of 2001. The themes of the story get tighter but MJ loses out on her coming of age story that Harry and Peter share. It's more explicit about them all living or trying not to live up to their father's idea of them. Harry is obviously born into the business and has a complicated relationship with his father and seeks validation. He follows in his father's footsteps and seeks revenge in his last scene. MJ's struggling in fulfilling her dream and is treated terribly by most men in her life. She compares Harry to her father in the Thanksgiving scene when he yells at her in all versions. The parallels and connections are there in the final movie, but some subtext was cut.
Peter's character changes drastically between these screenplays. He goes from a stereotypical nerd hero to one resembling the comics more to the subdued Tobey version. It's an extremely rocky road to getting the first theatrical live action Spider-Man and not everything is perfect, but a lot of good elements are there in fleshing out the characters, evoking the spirit of the comic books, and telling a good story of a boy becoming the man he's going to be for the rest of his life.
Also, reading the memed lines in this "raw" form is a novelty.

2022.01.22 19:59 msanonymous000 I can’t remember the last time I’ve experienced this much spiritual warfare. Please pray!
My life is in shambles right now. I have both physical and mental scars. Lots of obstacles and pain in my life. I’ve reached out to countless people and even professionals for help and no one knows how to.
This year I’ve spiritually helped people. Ive already been suffering prior. But I’ve noticed that after that happened, everything has been getting worse. I’ve never been this angry at God before. I’ve never reached such a low point in my life before.
Jesus prayer doesn’t help. Scripture doesn’t help. Please pray. If you guys have any spiritual advice too, please share.

Pics are after my hair dried. I used a strong hold gel but I never really got the crunch as it was drying 🤔

2022.01.22 19:59 Vast-Actuary-9689 Just got a ps5, missed out on MW19 last gen, so I bought the disc version - nothing but problems! Doesn’t work at all!!
Anything I can do? Or is it just broken? When I insert the disc I just get an unreadable disc error now. Before, it gave me a shitload of updates followed by an error and broken menu screens. Is this common? It’s kinda frustrating, it wasn’t expensive but I do wanna play the game…
