Boy, did I not expect this. Though, after Doc Oc, the Sandman is my favourite movie villain. He has by far the greatest background of all the Spider-Man villains from the movies. Y’know, he’s actually a criminal, though as he calls himself: ‘not a bad person’. He only does it for his little daughter Penny, who needs an operation but Flint and his wife can’t afford them(that’s a great father, isn’t it?).
After Flint Marco ran away once again from the cops, he got himself inside some sort of whirlpool of sand, changing his molecules as if they where made from sand. That also makes for a brilliant scene where Flint tries to crawl out of the sand(lol, it looks just like a baby who tries to stand and makes his first steps). He realizes he could damn well use those powers to get money to pay the medication bills for Penny. Later, he nearly got to his end when he confronted Spider-Man in the subways. He got resurrected somehow, and focuses on Spider-Man. He teams up with Eddy Brock, a former photographer from the Daily Bugle and rival of Peter.
On a scale of 1/10 of how I like the Sandman in the movie: 8/10, has a well-thought background, is freakishly strong, and his looks match extremely well with the Sandman in the comics.
