The new Amazing Spider-Man series, with a mentality dedicated single-mindedly to replicating the success of the Marvel family's favorite brother (the Marvel Cinematic Universe), has managed to throw every idea that they can come up with at the wall, without pausing for long enough to see if any stick. Sony has already announced a possible Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Amazing Spider-Man 4, along with spinoffs for the Sinister Six, Black Cat, and even Aunt May, and none of them rank above the others when it comes to the likelihood of ever being fucking made. If I had my way, we'd get the Aunt May prequel, because the idea of Sally Field's character as the focus of her own Batman Begins is my favorite idea in the entire world, just because it has the gall to exist.
One would think that destiny would see how adorable Field is and refrain from ever putting her through something worse than a role in Beyond the Poseidon Adventure, a film about a group that goes back to the giant, wrecked ship to retrieve all the hidden plutonium on it. Beyond follows the The Ring 2 school of filmmaking, where you add ludicrous details to the plot of a sequel to negate the importance of the original film. But that was just the beginning of the crescendo, as destiny cares naught for Field's impossible charm and decided to put her and her family in a plane crash that involved multiple planes. "Go big or go home," destiny boasted proudly.
"Dear fate: blow me. Sincerely, Sally Field."
In 1988, a plane containing Field, her likability, her husband, her baby son, and her mother, lost control and veered from the runway during takeoff. Because an "Oh, shit" reaction from anyone who would ever hear of this wasn't enough, her plane ran into two other planes, one after the other. That means that her plane had managed to gain so much deadly forward momentum that a second plane wasn't enough to stop it. It would take a third plane to step in and say, "OK, enough with this foolishness," for Field's plane to take its rightful place in not destroying the lives and property of everyone involved.
Compared with what could have happened when it comes to bodily harm and plane crashes (all of the harm that can conceivably happen), the fact that Field escaped with "bruised ribs and a wrenched back" is miraculous. It's due to this example of luck that, if we don't see a scene of her throwing up her fists and saying, "Ninjas again?" in Aunt May: Genesis, I'll be inconsolably disappointed.
