Do they make any "Birdman" references?

Not that I remember, I don't think so.

I was at least hoping for one Batman reference though. Michael Keaton should have told Peter, "Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?"

I would have cheered.

I bet most kids watching this movie have no idea Michael Keaton was Batman. They'll probably be so shocked seeing Keaton as an evil father threatening to kill Peter in this movie, and then go back to the old Batman movie and seeing him as Bruce Wayne fighting The Joker. There should have been at least one Batman reference, but I guess since this was a Marvel movie they couldn't do that anyway.

I'm still waiting for a decent Green Goblin to show up in the future Spider-Man movies (along with a good Mysterio actor.)

An idea would be to have a CG mask that 'copies' the actor's facial expressions. That could work since the mocap and CG animation for our buddy Smeagol was handled well for LOTR.

An CG Gil Kane or an Alex Ross style Goblin mask could be really awesome.

Spoilers are in place due to some huge images.

Gil Kane Style Green Goblin..

The Alex Ross version of the Mean Greenie..

Also, I actually enjoyed Dafoe's Goblin in the Sam Rami Spider-Man movie, even though the costume and mask that he wore, did cause some upset among the Spider-Man fans.
