gunga galunga: Carth: Sure the relaunch was terrible and Sony is preventing Spider man from being in the Avengers where he belongs; but they made money so cares what comic book nerds want.

I feel you, but somehow, I don't think anybody at Sony is going to be saying "Sure, Spiderman has been a very successful franchise, and sure, we can continue to make more money off of it, but what the comic book nerds want is Spiderman in The Avengers. So let's give the rights back to Marvel and let them make all the Spidey dough from now on".

/rather liked the Spidey reboot

Spider-man is NOT a member of the farking Avengers, kids its completely out of character for him and even you losers (and Marvel's writers, apparently) should know better. Also the movie was farking good. Suck it, haters.

/adjusts onion on belt, walks away.

Mugato: Metaluna Mutant: And the new Sperman movie will AGAIN show the origin, krypton etc

Yeah, good luck topping Marlon Brando and that Christmas tree ornament smashing through the roof with score by John farking Williams. I'm sure that scene needs improved upon.

What really bugs me is that it kills an hour+ of the film basically to tell the same story over and over again. And unlike spider-man or batman heres's no guilt/motivation hanging over everything superman does.

Besides, IMO no superman film is going to be better than the Diniverse stuff. Sorry.

I thought the reboot was fun. Flawed, yes. Unnecessary, yes. But entertaining.

fusillade762: zedster: isn't that if Sony doesn't do anything with Spider man for 5 years they lose the rights to it?

So they have to keep rebooting the franchise or Marvel gets the rights back

This was my understanding as well.

They have to keep making new movies but there's nothing that says they have to keep rebooting it. They could just make sequels. They don't need to show Peter get bitten by the spider and Uncle Ben dying every fourth movie.

cgraves67: They reboot made some money, I didn't realize there was a need to defend it. The results speak for themselves.

Justin Bieber and Honey Boo Boo make money, too. The results speak for themselves.

She... is the "CHAIRMAN" of Sony? Like the top dawg?
A 27 year old "I'm a model/singer/actress/designer"-type??

Between this and Yahoo, this world is insane.

Most people don't use the florin mark in currency character substitutions. Nice work, subby.
