Seriously, why don't they just move on with another actor playing Spider Man and tell another story. A new director, new cast, new style, no problem. Just move on. Why do they need to re-tell the "origin/high school" story yet again?

We really should have a new thread by now! It's an entirely different movie than Spider-Man 4...

Weird that they would make that sort of commitment. 500 Days of Summer was fantastic, but jumping to something like Spider-man seems pretty big. Then again, I guess it worked out for Chris Nolan.

Here's more info. 80 million budget and cast of unknowns. "The touchstone for the new movie will not be the 1960s comics, which were the inspiration behind the movies by Raimi, but rather this past decade's "Ultimate Spider-Man" comics by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley where the villain-fighting took a back seat to the high school angst."

Actually, the Bendis run on Ultimate Spider-Man was excellent. Unless he's writing the movies, though, I doubt they'll be as good.

Will there be a scene where Peter Parker watches his relationship with Gwen Stacey play out as a French New Wave film? Gee, I can only dream!

Supr, can this thread be closed and a new one started on the new movie? Thanx!
