Because of their bankruptcy, Marvel really signed some shiatty deals for X-Men and Spider-Man.

Instead of getting Spidey back so he can be integrated into the Marvel Universe, Sony has the rights to do shiatty reboots every five years and make Spidey into a sparkly emo Twilight-Man so they can hang onto the rights to make Spider-Man movies.

Unfortunately, Twilight Spidey will make loads of money, and Sony will keep doing this over and over and over again.

I'm bored with the eternally late-teen Spider-Man and am really not interested in another origin story. I thought what made the second Raimi film good, apart from Molina's excellent scenery chewing, was the exploration of the challenges Parker was facing as a maturing superhero with a whole new raft of concerns and responsibilities in his personal life and an evolving morality.

Considering Parker is one of the few superheroes who isn't a billionaire, government agent or member of some super team it's nice seeing him have to actually deal with real world problems on top of trying to save NYC every other month. In fact it's a primary reason he's so popular, people can relate to his normal side.

I'm not into comics or comic book movies. However, when I first saw the 31 year old guy playing a high school student they cast as Spiderman, my first thought was "That guy's not Spiderman. He's not a dork, he's a heartthrob."

Hiring this guy to be Spiderman is like hiring a Korean woman to play Thor. I don't know how you can enjoy the movie when the lead actor clearly isn't appropriate for the role.

Eeeeeh, those are fairly recent(2005 for the Avengers IIRC). For the majority of his run(outside of a brief stint int he FF) Spidey has been on his own.
 
2012-06-27 10:34:53 AM
I found the first Spider Man with Toby McGuire to be rather depressing, and also didn't care for Green Goblin's outfit.. he should have had green skin.

I've heard good things about 2, but haven't gotten around to seeing it yet, and 3 seems to be universally panned.

Going by trailers alone, this looks like a bit of a step up, with a bit more humor, and wisecracking Spidey.

I'm getting sick of the 5 minute trailers for this one. I'm going to watch it because I watch everything in the summer, and I'm probably going to make fun of it. Also, I still want Carnage damnit.

My girlfriend was all like, "Yo, Dawg. I heard you liked Spider-Man, so I bought us both opening night tickets to see Amazing Spider-Man in Ultra-AVX 3D." I wonder how many people will be puking from motion sickness due to the POV webslinging/parkour sequences in 3D, but I'm bringing a raincoat just in case.
 
2012-06-27 11:02:56 AM
i am going to see it on July 4th at AMC in 3D at the early morning god why am I up this early 9am showing. Its usually the 5.25 price for 3D and the place is not packed! So I can watch the movie and drink my 4Loko's in peace!
 
2012-06-27 11:03:12 AM
I'm fine with a reboot after the debacle of Spiderman 3 and actors age, unlike superheroes.
There's one character that's not a problem with, tho.

While Parker should be more of a geek than poofy-haired boy band backup dancer, it is nice to see Spidey actually making jokes and wisecracks. Raimi's SM didn't have any jokes or light-heartedness in them. Action? Yeah. Good acting? Sure. Jokes? Nope. A good action flick, but the only funny parts were done by the great Bruce Campbell.

In another thread, someone commented that this one looks like a cartoon, and hell, if it is like the old SM cartoons, I might just see it afterall.

well, we are going back to mechanical web shooters. so there is that.

/Actually loved the organic web shooters in raimi's films. always made more sense especially since the mechanical ones that peter invent are just flat out impossible. yes, yes, comics and all that but really. i always felt that in a universe with mutants, powers, and incredible impossible tech that there was simply NO farkIN WAY that peter invented the web shooter. Especially since his inventing streak seemed to start and end at web shooters and spidey trackers (trackers aren't even fantastic tech). Always felt that the whole web shooter thing was simply so pete could run out of web fluid at the worst possible time to add drama. the organic version was much better IMHO.

I remember some villains in the early cartoons whom the webs couldn't stick to, and slid right off. So Spidey had to go home, and alter his web formula to make it work against that villain. Doesn't work with organic shooters.

i don't really know. bond movies always had spy tech in those 60's movies that looked plausible, and since pete's trackers were just something that triggered spidey-sense, who knows.

I agree. Having mechanical web-shooters for a guy with biological spider powers is like having him have to wear suction cup gloves and boots to climb walls. The only reason to have them would be so he could shoot different kinds of webs instead of just a stream, like patterns or wide nets, etc.

Yeah it does. Have him whip up a supplement to drink. Can have fun with that - it's changes the web fluid he produces, but makes him pissy, or dizzy, or sick, etc. Adds to drama, and plays up his science background.
