Spidey's outfit looks smooth.  Have they surmounted the CGI thing that requires more texture?

I blame the webbing and Spiderman's lack of knowledge of physics and anatomy.

After the Red Wedding, I'm fairly confident most viewers are numb to the killing of any "main" characters to any story, forever. As someone who knew about the Gwen Stacey death year ago, I for one welcome you all into the nihilistic world of not giving two shiats about anything and anyone. EVER.

As a longtime denizen of said world, I'd say it feels good, but I'd be lying.  It doesn't feel like anything at all.

It's pretty much TV in general. I've detached myself from caring about most characters on dramas because I know at any point they could be killed. Dexter was the one that took it over the edge when (OLD SPOILER ALERT) they killed Rita. Did not expect that at all and it shook me to the point where I couldn't get into the next season because I still down about them killing her. After that point I just stopped caring about any TV character because they could be killed at anytime. Same thing with Spartacus. I went into the last season knowing some (if not all) of my favorite characters would die, and it made it easier to watch.

New photos, clearly the same outfit.

Given the quality of the last movie this could just be trolling or wardrobe was working from one of the most reprinted(and therefore readily available) comics in history.

Something like that should be saved for the last movie with this cast but I guess they're in a hurry to get Gobby onscreen. It's not looking like this will be any better than the last one.

I didn't dislike the last one. It was mediocre, and I had several complaints, but it was better than Spiderman 3, not as good as the first two movies.

Killing Gwen in the third installment would end the trilogy as a huge downer.  If they're not doing a trilogy and plan a fourth, that could be okay.  If Green Goblin shows up right after he beats Electro and kills Gwen Stacy then, they could have the whole third movie be about Spidey going vendetta on Green Goblin, including getting the Venom suit (more in a Ultimates version than normal) and having it fuel his anger and vengeance, to set up for a Venom villain in the 4th.

But that movie would be getting dangerously close to Spiderman 3, which no one wants.

 Anyone who watched cartoons in the 80s should be numb to that since Robotech and the animated Transformers movie (which killed off just about every major character including Optimus Prime in the first 10 minutes)

Maybe they'll turn the character into a shrill harpy, so if it happens, people will be relieved.

Or maybe she'll disappear for a year or so movie time, and come back having just given birth to Norman's kids.

The outfit could just be a nice bit of fan service from the costume department.

No.... there is too much costume on Gwen/Emma to be a fan service.

I watched the first ASM for free, and hated it.  I won't even bother watching the second one for free if offered. It craps on the character. I'm not interested.

Go ahead.  Kill off Emma Stone's character, the only reason I watched the first movie.  What could go wrong?

That ending was spoiled for me by the local radio DJs. I had legally-acquired-it-from-magical-means, but wouldn't have time to watch it until the night after it aired. I thought I could avoid spoilers.

Nope. The drive in to work, the radio DJs were talking about something completely unrelated (both to Dexter and TV shows in general) and suddenly said, "Man, it sure sucks that Trinity killed Rita."

Jamie Fox's Electro? I don't think there have ever been three words that make it less likely for me to see a movie. Skipped the first at of sheer principle about reboots.

why would webbing her legs while falling cause her neck to snap? doesn't the web stretch in a bunjie like fashion too? If he didn't web then she splats anyway.

That's how I go through life.  Any one of my family or friends could die or be killed at any moment, so I just choose to stay as detached as possible.

Are you sure, because your three words "principle about reboots" would make it seem just as likely.

At the time, it apparently didn't. I'm not sure it does even now.

If he didn't web then she splats anyway.

Yeah, but he should have let the web play out a little after snagging her, to slow her down more gradually the way a bungee cord would. He actually did this in a story some years later, having learned from the Gwen Stacy scenario.

Kill gwen, end Spidey 2 with the 'Face it tiger' scene. Roll credits. 3rd movie is Peter dealing with loss and accepting 2nd best. Maybe have the Vulture as a villain, he sucks...

Brainsick: Kill gwen, end Spidey 2 with the 'Face it tiger' scene. Roll credits. 3rd movie is Peter dealing with loss and accepting 2nd best.


That's what I felt walking out of the first movie. The first movie is about Peter Parker becoming Spiderman. At the end of that movie, he promises a dying Captain Stacy that he will keep Gwen out of his life. In the second movie he breaks that promise and she ends up getting killed due to her association with Spiderman. Then the third movie would be about Peter forgiving himself and having to accept the fact that being Spiderman means always putting his loved ones in danger. So he immediately starts dating MJ, because if any woman who deserves to be in peril, it's that self-absorbed twunt.

/to be fair, the comic book MJ is not nearly as obnoxious as the Sam Raimi's Spiderman MJ

I'm on the fence with the new Spider-Man movies.  I mean, I liked Garfield as Spidey.  He had the wise cracking, shiat talking New York Spider-Man down pat.  He was a dork that when he put on the mask became someone else.  Someone way more confident to smack talk while fighting the bad guys.  But as Peter, he was terrible.  I had a hard time believing that a good looking, skateboard riding, wise-ass kid was considered an outsider, no matter how smart he was supposed to be. 

And as far as the web shooters go...  Yeah, I just can't do it.  Sam Rami ruined me on the idea of web shooters.  It makes more sense to me, in the realm of this universe, that the same spider bite that gave him the agility and ability to walk on walls as well as precognition would also give him organic web shooters that the idea that he makes and manufactures his own all the time.  

I loved Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, though I think she (and Garfield for that matter) were way too old to play the part.  Dennis Leary...  Yeah, I could have lived without him being in it. He did what the role called of him, I guess, but still.  

I just wish Sony would do the right thing and sell the rights back to Marvel/Disney.  I know it's likely the sun will burn out before that happens, but I would love to see Spidey talking smack to Loki and Hulk alike.
 
2013-06-07 07:17:08 PM
I thought maybe the carpet didn't match the drapes, because it never even occurred to me that there were people who didn't know she dies.

Then again, people don't appear to know that Nick Fury isn't a black guy.

Who dies in the third?

Thirded. Downton Abbey was rough this year, man.

I like to think that Catelyn Stark and (spoilers!) Sybil Crawley Branson are hanging out in some cool TV afterlife for fictional characters with Rita from 'Dexter.' Cat could get some much-needed therapy and group hugs from the other killed-off mommies, at least until [REDACTED BECAUSE I'VE READ THE BOOKS.]

That's what turned my off about the first movie, with Tobey Maguire. Spider-Man is supposed to be a smart-ass. I didn't bother with any of the other movies because it seemed like it was just some generic superhero action movie with some guy that happened to be wearing a red and blue spider costume. It wasn't the Spider-Man I knew from the comics.

So, the re-boot is worth watching?

It's worth a rental. I didn't  hate the movie (unlike SM3 which I  loathed...),but on the other hand if I don't see the movie ever again for the rest of my life then no skin off my back.
