Hot on the heels of the Dark Knight Rises teaser, here is the trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man reboot,

Whoa, first Howling goes all emo and Twilighty, and now this? This is kind of strange. Kind of disappointed that Dr Connor's isn't Welsh though.

*Sigh* We will miss you Tobey Maguire. Your protrayal of Peter as a self obsessed manchild balancing on the edge of kidnapping Mary Jane and keeping her in a hole in Aunt May's basement will surely be missed.

The end sequence looks familiar though...

Yeah, that's right. Faith don't need no stinkin' superpowers!

Andrew Garfield looks like hipster Edward Cullen with the glasses on.

Hmm, interesting they're actually having someone wonder about what happened to his mum and dad, though perhaps it doesn't really matter, since the comics managed it for years, until they brought in the "They were spies on the side" bit.

Don't know enough about this take on Peter to judge yet, but the jury's out. Pretty enough, but I want Peter-the-picked-on-science-geek and I'm not sure this is him.

It may be a little derivative (and IIRC the bullet time effects in The Matrix grew out of some effects used for a car ad) but I LOVE the Spider-Cam sequence.

Everybody is complaining about that, am I the only one who sees it as Peter trying to be cooler than he actually is? I see it and go "Oh Pete." and laugh to myself.

Like I said above, I see it as Pete trying to be cooler than he actually is. I know I tried it in high school, it didn't work for me at all.

And yeah, I love the Spider-Cam sequence too, I'm thinking that since this is being shot in 3D, it might look good in 3D on the big screen.

I really don't understand why this movie can't just do what the new Hulk movie did and tell the origin in the credits and get it over with there. Everyone knows his origin, do we really need to see it again? He gets bit by a spider, yes alright, we get it, move along.

It looks like their making Gwen a scientist/intern


makes no sense at all?

Yeah, Andrew is too good-looking to play Peter. And I really hope they show the scientist side of Peter. And get Peter even reasonably right (which the Raimi films never did)

Also, I am NOT interested in what they are doing with his parents. They do NOT need to be in this! Don't make them spies, please!

(Also, I love how Gwen says Peter lives with his Aunt and Uncle like "OMG ISN'T THAT SO STRANGE AND FUNNY" Way to be insulting, Gwen)

It looks like it might be closer to the spectacular spiderman characterization where gwen was doctor connors assistant.

makes plenty of sense.

Originally, Peter met Gwen when they were studying science at Empire State University. I thought it was generally accepted that Gwen was as smart as she was attractive. Gwen's been given internships in other mediums too. In the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon she's give an internship at Connors' lab along with Peter. She manages to keep it longer than Peter too.

Though to be fair, Peter only lost it because of the strain of his dual identity, not because of any failure in him as a scientist.

yeah, I've been reading the Essentials and they make it pretty clear at the start she was pretty damn smart, hell during his crazy speech the Jackal says she was one of the brightest girls he'd ever met.

That's true, but it doesn't diminish the fact that Gwen is equally capable as a scientist as Peter is.

I do think "Failing to show up on time" and "selling pictures to newspapers without leave" would put a crimp in anyone's capacity to function as a scientist.

Can you give me the full title of that book, or a link to it on Amazon? I wouldn't mind looking into it further, since the only versions of Gwen I'm familiar with are Ultimate and Spectacular.

True, but that's a matter of commitment and priority, rather than pure scientific genius.

Gwen gets introducted starting in Essential Spider-Man Vol. 3 and she lasts until around i wanna say Essential Vol. 6? Jackal makes the speech in Essential Vol 7.

Thank you for that. I'll have to keep an eye out for them.

Ah okay, cool.

I was never around to read most of the Gwen stuff, and I never watched the cartoon. So my Gwen-experience comes from the Ultimate line and the Death of.. Trade.

That little tidbit is interesting, because I read someone arguing that Gwen was a flat character when she was with Peter, and wasn't as well developed as her Ultimate counterpart.

This film could really do wonders for Emma Stone's career. She's possibly the only reason I'm going to watch the film. Other than that, I hate the guy's hair and the total lack of funny in the trailer.

I wasn't around to read any of it, I only just turned 19. Most of what I know about 616 Gwen Stacy comes from wikipedia.
Though the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon is amazing, it's 26 episodes long because it was cancelled during the Disney buyout thing.

In my understanding though, her Ultimate counterpart is much more developed.

When I first saw the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trailer I was so giddy and excited. This just gets a "meh".

And I know Spider-Man 3 was bad but the first two were great. The second one in particular is IMO the definitive comicbook film. When you read some of the supporters on the internet, you'd think this was the equivalent of Christopher Nolan picking up from Joel Schumacher. But I guess when you're replacing something you have to tear down your predecessor.

Idiot Producer: We need to make a new Spider-Man movie. All right, what's popular and making stupid amounts of money these days?

Yes Man: Well, there's Twilight.
IP: Great! They're making lots of money?
YM: Well yes, but...
IP: But?
YM: Well, it's filled with really bad writing, cliches, and emo characters.
IP: What's its demographic?
YM: Sceraming...teenage girls?
IP: Perfect! We need to expand beyond basement nerds!
YM: But sir, people HATED the emo Peter Parker in...
IP: Who?
YM: Peter...Parker? Spider-Man?
IP: Oh right! You mean that Toby kid. Well, what's that Twilight guy look like?
YM: Bland, big stupid hair...
IP: Perfect! Get someone just like him.
YM: But...
IP: Oh, and when we release the trailer, make ABSOLUTELY sure there is zero humour in it.
YM: But Spider-Man's supposed to be funn...
YM: Yessir. *sob*

Some of the music at the start sounds a lot like Placebo's "Running up That Hill."

The "Peter's parents were spies" bit works if you realize Peter risks his life as Spider-Man in secret so no one will know it is him (Peter) doing it. Spies operate for the benefit of their country, often when their country doesn't know about it.

The ending of the Colin Farrell movie "The Recruit" could work as an ending of a Spider-Man movie.

"You were born to do this, Peter. It's in your blood."

Idiot Producer: What kind of bad guys did those Twilight movies have?
Yes Man: Well, the first one had a vampire that was all about hunting and killing humans. The third one had newborn vampires that couldn't control their rage and bloodlust.
IP: Hunting, killing, rage, bloodlust... Just add in a few "science is bad" morals and this movie writes itself!
YM: It may have to. *sob*
