The Amazing Spider-Man (2012 reboot)
I feel like there was a thread for this but now I can't find it. Anyway, we probably all know that Spider-Man is being rebooted a decade after Sam Raimi's first film in the three-film franchise with Andrew Garfield (Social Network, Never Let Me Go) now in the webs as Peter Parker, Emma Stone (Easy A) playing Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as Dr. Connors / The Lizard.

Apparently the first trailer is coming out next week and now there's a bunch of official images in showing Peter's web shooters, Uncle Ben and Aunt May and Spidey's butt. Yay?














SPIDEY GOT GAAAAAAAME

Gwen Stacey soooooohooooooooooot

I actually think this is gonna be really good... Tbh, wasn't a massive fan of the first three, particularly that last one which I won't Voldemort.

Holy fucking shit, what I would do to that chick from Easy A. Perfect Gwen!

I think he looks sick as Peter/Spidey. I'm cautiously optimistic, certainly can't be worse than number 3 FFS.

Also, WEB SHOOTERS!

Yeah keen on it too! Think the new costume looks cool and doing it with minimal CGI is a good thing.

Director also did 500 Days of Summer so I think he knows the right tone.

I fucking despised Toby Maguire as Spiderman. I think Andrew Garfield will do a fucking way better job.

Christopher Nolan should just be given the reigns to all superhero movies, make them dark as fuck and cave our heads in every six months with a new release

The only issue for me being:

"With Greatest Power, Comes Greatest Responsibility!"

The fuck?! He does not possess the greatest power, his power is great, but far from the greatest.

My only concern is this; with sam raimi off the boards, does this mean there'll be no bruce campbell cameo?

Looks good!

And the introduction of Pete's parents seems like it will have an over-reaching story arch, listen to what he says towards the end.

Uhhh that POV scene looks like a really terrible game IMO, not just any game

Story looks exactly the same as the existing movies?

Would disagree that it's the same story - Gwen Stacey and Capt Stacey, his parents and their backstory, some small differences which will end up separating them quite a bit I think.

It seems a bit more serious in tone too, which suits me fine

I don't understand the problem... Toby Maguire was a shit Spiderman. Andrew Garfield looks like he'll kick arse. The reboot is because anyone who saw number three (or any of the first three, in my case) walked out with either or both of the following two reactions: physical illness or utter emptiness. Spiderman deserved better, and now, it looks to me like they're giving him better.

Spidey 3 could have made $800 billion dollars worldwide and it'd still be a fucking gash film.

More Ultimate Spider-Man than 616 Spidey. I'm optimistic.

Have the guts to come straight fkn out and say "REBOOT"!!!

Find it hilarious Marc Webb, Avi Arad, Sony and most others involved keep going with The Untold Story in attempts to milk popularity and interest from the original trilogy.

New trailer is cool, but did not feel enough 'new' from it...

Time for Nolan or Aronofsky to reboot SW Episodes 1-3 I'd say.

Yeah, nice! Do enjoy hearing The Glitch Mob when Spidey is webslinging!

OH! And new origin of his powers:

Quote:

Three sources have told me this, but I held it. I didn't see the point in running it now, when the movie has been shot and edited and is ready to go. Nothing can be changed. But then the new trailer hits today and all but spells this out, so what the hell, here we go:

Spider-Man's origin has been changed in The Amazing Spider-Man. The spider bite no longer gives Peter powers, it rather activates something already in his genetic structure. Something placed there by his father. Peter Parker is no longer super-powered by chance, but rather by design.

I like that he seems much more of a smart arse in this one than Toby Maguire was in the previous. Looking good.

Whether it's any good or not, I reckon it'll tank critically due to sheer over-saturation.

Are there really no other franchises worth resurrecting?

Or (gasp!) make new ones?

Man, I know:

Quote:

Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man" may not offer the obvious and immediate satisfaction of Sam Raimi's movies - at it's slowest moments, it almost feels like he's making a Spider-Man for the "Twilight" generation. That said, the more you think about it, the more you realize how well it portrays certain aspects of the character better than other typical comic book action movies, and they've certainly set up solid groundwork for another great superhero franchise.

Quote:

The Amazing Spider-Man stands as a lesson for all reboots. Audiences don't need to go back to Origin Story 101 with these characters, no matter how much spit and polish filmmakers put on such a tale. And simply copying the success of other pictures -- let's go dark like Chris Nolan! -- isn't the key to super-success either. Undiscerning audiences might be mildly diverted by Webb's film, but alas it won't have the lasting impact of many of its superhero peers.



This is a fear I have for The Man of Steel next June, if there are two origins NO ONE ever needs to see or hear again, it would be Supes and Spidey.

Children are now born with this knowledge.
