I would ask if you are 14 years old but it would be insulting to earlier real and made-up ilxors who have posted here at that age.

The Spider-Man ride at Universal Studios is a 3D first-person thing. It's really good and it's only 5 mins long.

Wow. Now with even more daddy issues. Somehow that's commendable.

looks like they're gonna explore the whole 'parents' thing, though, which i don't even remember from the comics

My husband told me there was a story in the comics where the parents were actually spies who got killed, I hope they don't do that for the movie -- it would be so cheesy.

Was doing some idle checking around today and discovered apparently the murderer of his parents was...the Red Skull. Or one of them. Crossover!

Sorry, Lorax, that was a little blunt.

I'm not offended by you trying to start beef over a spider-man movie

I'll be on the look out for Campbell Scott in the Captain America after-credits teaser.

An impossible dream i'm afraid

will probably see this at some point but seems ridiculously early for a reboot. not as quick as the Hulk reboot which was, what, two years after the first movie I guess. but still, wtf. they could have just continued the series on with a new actor if they wanted to and not started over

i mean it's not like we get 'the origin of james bond' every ten years when the lead actor changes.

akm, Wednesday, 20 July 2011 18:04 (3 years ago) Permalink

The most recent Bond actor change *did* give us "the origin of James Bond" fwiw. Or at least showed him completing the kill that first earned him his double-0 designation.

I was about to say, and did so in a quick, no-more-than-needed fashion, credit to them.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 20 July 2011 18:07 (3 years ago) Permalink

There had never been origin of Bond film before tho

Number None, Wednesday, 20 July 2011 18:08 (3 years ago) Permalink

i don't know anything about this, but i always thought the hulk reboot was because they wanted to tie it in a little more explicitly with the expanding marvel movie-verse.

Role model here when it comes to tentpole/franchise movie (as opposed to TV) backstories could almost be Sherlock Holmes from a couple of years ago. Fuck a backstory, Holmes and Watson are buds fighting crime, the end.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 20 July 2011 18:09 (3 years ago) Permalink

I hope Spider-Man follows in said fashion, if only to give a new couple of retirement age actors a chance at regular employment every decade or so.

My Boyfriend Could Be A Spanish Man (R Baez), Wednesday, 20 July 2011 18:10 (3 years ago) Permalink

Grant Morrison's All-Star Superman dispenses with his origin in one page, cos we all know it already. If they want to include an origin in these things just do it a short pre-credits sequence or whatever

Number None, Wednesday, 20 July 2011 18:12 (3 years ago) Permalink

i must not know the first thing about the movie business, because it's incredible to me that they are rebooting a reboot

goole, Wednesday, 20 July 2011 18:23 (3 years ago) Permalink

was there another reboot before this one

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Wednesday, 20 July 2011 18:24 (3 years ago) Permalink

er well the raimi ones

can't believe raimi rebooted this

That Spider-man teaser is like the trailer to some emo body horror flick we're not going to get. David Cronenberg's "The Spider Man."

There are scenes where Andrew Garfield's hair looks totally like something James Franco would rock.

how's life, Friday, 4 May 2012 10:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's called "Spidey-mask hair." or "web-head," if you're punny.

The second movie featured one of my favorite movie shortcut glosses, wherein Dr. Octopus essentially mail orders the components to build a nuclear fusion generator or whatever to be delivered to his secret warehouse in Brooklyn. I genuinely love how comic books never get into where these arch villains and heroes get the raw materials to build their bases, palaces, equipment, etc.

Batman: Logistics & Fulfillment a surprisingly low grosser at the box office.

i love the large auns pictures! (Phil D.), Friday, 4 May 2012 13:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

But those who saw it loved it.

Spider-Man Tony-nominated for playing Biff Loman btw

The director talks about the trailer. A lot.

Spidey angsting over his parents doesn't sound particularly interesting to me.

AS IF Andrew Garfield's crying face could be anywhere near as amazing as Dawson's.

Frankly, this seems more entertaining.

I've learned not to judge movies simply by their trailers, but everything I've seen from this reboot looks absolutely like style over substance (and, frankly, stupid).

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 16:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's going to make a ton of money regardless of what I think, but it does look rather heartless and slick. The whole idea of a reboot is so ridiculous when there really isn't much new being added to the story.

false binary, Raimi Spidey was pretty stylish. i don't even know what a "substantial" Spider-Man movie would look like but i'm pretty sure i don't wanna see it.

some dude, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 16:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

Any superhero film is going to be stylish, yes, but action clips from this new one closer resemble a video game than anything in a real world setting.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 16:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

There was a humility/humanity about the first Raimi Spider-man film (and maybe the others) that doesn't appear present anywhere in this one.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 17:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

this looks to me to be the exact same movie as the first Raimi Spiderman with a prettier Peter Parker
