“The Amazing Spider-Man” Trailer

Well, I’ve switched from one focusing on one comic book movie to another. As some of you know, this trailer was leaked a few days ago, before being taken down more swiftly than Warner Bros. treated the “The Dark Knight Rises” bootleg. However, Columbia chose to not let it’s fans wait long for the real thing. Here is the first “Spider-Man” trailer, in all of it’s glory.

Everything looks great, withholding the ridiculously jarring and fake-looking first person action shot. I think that Andrew Garfield will do a great job as Peter Parker and the look of the film is fantastic, credit to director Marc Webb. Yet, watching this, I find myself asking, more than ever before, exactly what was the point in rebooting this, other than adding another billion dollars to the bank account. Stylistically and thematically, the film might be a little different and perhaps even a little better. Yet, neither of those two categories have changed enough to make this reinvention valid.

I suppose this debate will continue once we see a little more footage. Check out the trailer, for yourselves, below.

    Their purpose in the reboot may be to tell a darker story that is aimed at a different demographic. While I did very much enjoy the films that came out in the early last decade, the look now very much like the original 1990s Batman films: literally bringing the comic book world into film. There is lighthearted humor, over-the-top characters, and art production that makes those films seem far-removed from our world.

    This, as well as the Nolan-ified Batman, looks like it is trying to capture a much more realistic approach- how does a hero cope with modern-day issues, and where is there room for a villain to rise that isn’t entirely far-fetched?

    It would also be interesting to do a comparison study between the global economy’s “mood” and the time which each of these films/reboots were made.

    Except when you look at Nolan’s Batman, or even the trailers (since that’s all that we have to go on, here), the difference between the two franchises is enormous, in both story and visual style. Maybe this film will tell a slightly darker story, but the differences are just not immense enough to warrant another movie. I watch this and I see the same movie with a touch more thematic lighting and a more attractive lead.

    Everything was kosher in my book until the POV-animated-videogame-running on the roof top sequence began. Lame. Not looking forward to watching this film at all!!!! This is a Dark Knight rip off with a great cast. Nuff said.
