"New ‘Spider-Man’ Trailer Turns On The Dark"
“One More Day” pretty much spent all the nerd rage I could direct at Spider-man. I’m going to see it, but I’m going in expecting to roll my eyes more than once and just leave it at that.
These two changes to the origin are pretty implied in the trailers so far. I know there’s some secret origin to Peter’s parents, but I don’t remember it having to do with Peter’s genetics (maybe in the lame “ultimate” timeline).
I’m going to go out on limb and predict that Uncle Ben is alive during most of this movie. Guh.
Well, we all know that my parents don’t read this site.
When will it come to the point that taking an original idea that the movie was created on and fuck it two ways from Sunday cease to be? Seriously I was somewhat excited for this movie, now it is all gone. I was ready to hand over my money for a Spiderman reboot, not some some newly redesigned soon-to-be piece of shit that even the shitty execs didn’t like. Note to Hollywood when you are done ass raping my childhood feel free to call me.
“Do you think what happened to you, Peter, was an accident?”
YES, YES, I DO BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT IT FUCKING WAS!
(Sadly, I admit I shouted this last night at the Avengers premier. What can I say? The nerd rage was strong with this one. That and I was jacked up on three blue Full Throttles so as not to sleep on some Avengery goodness.)
I’m always glad when comic book movies don’t play it safe, specifically when they create new settings to let the characters explore in, or when they play it loose with source material. Like how Ang Lee tried to put a soul into a character people normally just want to see break things, or how Nolan’s redesigned a lot of the Batman universe.
Let’s face it, comic books aren’t known for their great storytelling, especially the AAA stuff like Spider-man. There’s definitely room for improvement, and I’m always glad when they try, even if it doesn’t always work.
