Typically, the How It Should Have Ended videos do exactly as they say on the label. But the problems with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 were apparently so numerous, the team had to rewrite not just the third act but practically the entire film.
Which, in the end, actually makes even less sense. If you keep Richard Parker from getting into that plane crash, or prevent Max Dillon from falling into that electric eel tank, then why would there still be a big power plant showdown at the climax?
No matter, though. It’s just fun watching the HISHE gang poke fun at the nonsensical movie logic that runs the entire film. And it’s even more fun watching them bring in some superpowered pals for Spidey. Watch How The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Should Have Ended after the jump.
This isn’t the first time the HISHE crew has suggested that adding more superheroes could solve everything. Even their Frozen parody featured some big comic book cameos. We’re not saying they’re wrong (superheroes totally could solve everything if they were real, which within the universes of these movies, they are), but maybe it’s time to come up with a new plan.
The rest of their logic is totally on point though. So much pain and suffering could have been prevented if someone had simply thought to close the lid on their tank full of super-dangerous mutant eels. And I heartily thank the HISHE crew for ripping apart the Harry Osborn plotline. It’s a storyline that had potential, but was unfortunately crushed under the weight of all these stupid plot holes.
