I'm sure that shot of Routh was a deliberately posed promo shot, not something taken by an on-set photographer during filming of a scene. I remember seeing some set photos of Capt. America that looked totally ridiculous, and that ended up looking just fine.

My expectations are dropping pretty far for this movie. I thought with a reboot they might go the route of Batman and really hit one out of the park. From what I've seen in the trailers I'm not seeing it. I think I'll still see it though and sometimes going in with low expectations turns out to be much better than going in with high expectations.

Spiderman has always been one of my favourite heroes because of both the snark and the inclusion of every day problems.

I thought the first couple of spiderman movies were good. And then the Dark Knight trilogy comes along and suddenly I don't think Batman is this rich guy with unnecessary angst and silly villains anymore.

I don't know. It's hard to not appreciate that comic book fans are getting lots of love that they haven't gotten for almost twenty years (or more), but at the same time I'm starting to wonder if the studios aren't overdoing the density of superhero movie releases.

Sorry, but can you explain to me what makes this costume any worse than any other Spiderman costume? It's bright red and blue; the costume designers don't really have a lot to work with, here.

Bear in mind, also, that lighting on movie sets has to be just ridiculously bright to look good on film. Photos taken under such conditions are bound to look overexposed. A better-lit photo of the costume looks more like this:

Yep that's a big part of why spidey is so cool. Though I think it's pretty difficult to find a director who can pull it off. A lot of people just don't have the feel for snarky comedy. There's a new spiderman cartoon coming up and the preview clips were pretty bad IMO. It was slapstick comedy rather than snarky smartass comedy. They may be aiming for a younger audience with the cartoon, but I still would have liked to see something a little wittier. The Spectacular Spiderman cartoon was great in that regard.

Doing it backwards. Walking up the downslide.


I think the film looks pretty sweet. The kid they got to play Parker seems to do the sarcasm thing well ("You seriously think I'm a cop in a skintight red and blue suit...?") and they've given him the right girlfriend for an origin story (for once) and they've got him making a web-shooter instead of having the spider-silk come out of his wrists somehow... Overall, looks more faithful to the source material. I'm looking forward to it.

Okay, but let's take a breath here: what if he used his science skills to make hi-tech bumpy fabric that wouldn't easily rip while he's swinging around? If you catch on the sharp edge of a windowsill and your entire costume tears off, that's probably not convenient, especially if your web-slinging contraption gets lost with the rest of the costume and you fall to your death :p
Smart kid designed rubber enforcing to the rescue then, yeah?

That is why I love Spiderman. He was just a teenager/young adult, but he had so many problems. Worrying about his frail aunt, tearing his suit in a battle, selling pics to J.J to make the rent, hopping in through his skylight in his apartment hoping no one notices. Helping drug crazed friends(HArry) get "staright".
When you add it all up he may be the most complex and interesting super-hero ever created. Very blue collar type of hero.

As for the new movie....ehhh I MIGHT watch it I don't know yet. It certainly isn't on my 'MUST-SEE' list though.

By the way my favorite Spiderman story arc ever:


I read it in Marvel Tales(I believe it was 3 issues....yes 170-172).

BAD ASS!!!

I know, my complete dorkiness makes it easy to forget I have no Y chromosome

Note to Byte: I am joking around, being tongue-in-cheek with gender stereotypes that I generally do not follow, except in this case it happens that I do. (And now it isn't funny anymore because I explained the joke...)


And I still think that a reasonable, science-minded guy might decide to design something high-tech that wouldn't rip easily. This is not something I need to suspend my disbelief for. Especially considering we're talking about, well, Spiderman. You know, the dude who gets superpowers from radiation in spider venom, instead of ending up in the hospital for a couple weeks.

As I understand it they're going back to the story of his Uncle Ben is this right?
In which case I think the story is more the problem, not his costume.

Personally I'm not interested in this reboot. While Raimi did a nice job with Spiderman, the character had little where else to go with the sequels and it felt awkward at times and having Uncle Ben's murder be the catalyst for Spiderman's 'moods' in all three films was just lazy.

So unless this film does what Rise of the Apes did for the Planet of the apes films, I'll be avoiding this.

Yeahhh Baby!!

That is one sharp looking ship.
On a sidebar of my own:
My local cinema plays retro features every so often. Well, a few weeks ago they were playing The Wrath of Khan at a midnight show on Friday. Of course I went to see it. $4 admission so I did the logical thing and bought $10 worth of snacks for the feature(a large popcorn and soda).
I got in quite early, and was the sole person in the theater. They treated me to the musical score for Star Trek 2 while I waited. That was a nice touch I thought. When the lights went down, a few people straggled in but that was about it.
It looked, and sounded fantastic. It was the best movie going experience I have had in a long, long time. And that is rather sad considering I have seen it so many times. But you know you just can't make a perfect film stale....especially looking great on the big screen in near empty theater sipping a Pepsi, and chowing really good popcorn!
Needless to say, when the credits rolled, I may have been the happiest person on the planet.

See, now, the IMDb Trivia page on him got it wrong (emphasis mine)...
"His Daredevil character, Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, first appeared as an enemy of Spiderman until Frank Miller made him a major enemy of Daredevil. Duncan has played him opposite both characters, and as both a white man in the animated series "Spider-Man" (2003) and a black man in Daredevil (2003)."
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0003817/bio#trivia

He was equally black in the animated Spidey, so I naturally assumed it was carried over from Daredevil.

But I hope this other Trivia tidbit isn't also erroneous...

"Supposedly gives five dollars to anyone who recognizes him on the street and knows what his full name is."

Good to know!
