Silver Surver fan myself but....

this is another woeful attempt at a reboot. They really do have no ideas left :/

I do like his web-slingers though - matches the comics at least!

yeah, I wasn't expecting much. don't remember the source. but I had heard long ago, this movie was made just to force out a spider-man movie in order to fulfill some contract obligation that said the current holders of the movierights could only maintain the rights if they made the movies within a certain interval of eachother.

I have to say though. I didn't expect the movie to be so grainy looking

Originally they were going to make Spider-Man 4, but Raimi dropped out of the project and with him both Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst went. My guess is that Sony had allotted a budget for the fourth movie and simply used that for the reboot instead when Raimi dropped. The announcement of the reboot and the cancellation happened virtually simultaneously so I'm quite sure this was the case.

I wouldn't mind a change in casting and/or director. Heck, Peter Parker is the easiest character to cast in the world, he has no distinguishable features other than... brown-ish hair. And anyone reading the comics would be used to the characters being portrayed extremely different depending on current writers and artist. So a change in cast wasn't really a big deal. The part that pisses me off so much is that they do the origin story again. They just HAVE to have it occur during the highschool period. Sigh.

I guess production costs will be much lower without having to pay for 3 movies old actors and director...
...but this is mostly psychological. Check my devlog

.... and the same for superman - reboot and new origin story. Lazy. Damned lazy :/

Although after seeing the awesome trailer for Immortals, at least Henry Cavill looks like a good choice.
