Re: Spider-Man (2012, Marc Webb)

I know that, it just goes with the trend. It was a perfect opportunity to do orange and teal without the need to tweak the color scheme.

Re: Spider-Man (2012, Marc Webb)

So I take it by this new trailer that Gwen finds out early on that Peter is Spider-Man? The first trailer with the doorman led us to believe she didn't know, but I assume this happens early on now, otherwise they'd be showing a lot. Then again this new trailer seemed to show quite a bit anyway.

That trailer indicates she knows who spider-man is.

The subjects are orange, teal is introduced into it with towels and clothing and paint on buildings.. Wasn't an accident but I guess we are of topic.

Re: Spider-Man (2012, Marc Webb)

Looks great, looking forward to it. I guess I'm just in a minority that doesn't see the greatness of the first two, and doesn't think the third was that much worse.

Re: Spider-Man (2012, Marc Webb)

I've never understood why no one's been able to create an online video program that rivals Quicktime. Even on 1080p, Youtube videos look substantially shittier than even 720p Quicktime files.

Anyway, this movie could be complete shit and still be better than those Raimi films. And this actually looks decent, so I'm in.

Enjoy your Power Ranger-enemies, hideous monkey-face Mary Jane, non-wisecracking Parker, mechanical web-shooters and "It's SOOO Good" version then.

'Cause those movies were "awesome".

Re: Spider-Man (2012, Marc Webb)

I don't see how anyone could think that looks bad. I think it actually looks like a fresh take on spiderman. seems far more serious than the previous trilogy. spidey actually looks real swinging through the air instead of some cartoon.

Because a wisecracking Spidey making jokes about knives being his weakness is sooooo "dark and gritty."

I'm glad they informed me that it's the most anticipated film of the summer

Re: Spider-Man (2012, Marc Webb)

Could this movie have picked a worse summer to come out. Between Avengers, Prometheus and DKR, no one is going to care. Aside from the fact that it's a remake of an effects film that happened in the CGI era. Has that happened before? Trying to trump a modern CGI film with....modern CGI? Who thought this was a good idea. Really. In the trailers it doesn't look remotely as focused and intense as the Raimi Spidey.

Agree. But, I think some of the negativity is coming from being this is another origins story rather than a continuation. I just happened to flip by the trailer last night while AGT was recording and it looked pretty damn impressive. Alot less goofy and cartoonish than Spiderman 3. The supporting cast looks pretty impressive too with Denis Leary, Martin Sheen and Sally Field. I'm really curious to see how much cheaper budget-wise this is compared to the Sam Raimi movies when some definitve figures are released. I know Andrew Garfield is making chump change compared to what Maguire was making. I think he signed up for 3 movies and his salary for the 3 are less than what Maguire made for 1 movie.

The Incredible Hulk?

I didn't think the preview looked too bad, except for his hair.

I thought it looked fine. I'm just bummed about it being yet another origin story.

You got me there. And I'm sure there are others. As an aside not meant to defend my error, Marvel meant the Norton Hulk as a reboot specifically for the current Avengers universe. As far as I know the new Spidey was just a hey lets remake this thing kinda deal.

But the preview clip clearly states right in the beginning that this is the summer's most anticipated film

Which is quite hilarious because it's not anticipated at all

I think it still looks like some cartoon

I liked Spider-man 2, it has some intentionally over the top acting in it (I guess Raimi was going for a comic book vibe, which worked for the most part, and was very consistent, but it was agreeably very unnatural) but told a very solid story. Spider-man 1 (High school stuff was fine, Green Goblin ruined it) and 3 (which ignored any growth in Spider-man 2 and basically regressed to jr. high school mentalities) not so much.

This ... just looks redundant, I'm sure it'll do alright but it just feels utterly pointless so far. I'm willing to bet I'll like it more than Raimi's Spider-man 1, but that isn't saying much.
