^ Some of us are even going to keep an open mind and see how this movie turns out, instead of judging it on haircuts.

Other than the hair, I'm not seeing the Pattinson resemblance at all.

Its only the first picture, something about the camera angle on his face. The rest he doesn't really look like Pattinson.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I suppose that Andrew has a bit of the Pattison look in that first pic the way the camera is angled but even then I don't see it. He still looks a little like Eduardo the character he plays in "The Social Network".

Raimi's Spider-man was heavily influenced by Lee and Ditko. This movie will be influenced by the Ultimate storyline.

I think the gloves are for Peter's organic web shooters. At least that's what I think.

Not much of a stretch to think that he could come up with something which has eluded all of the techological, scientific and money-laden companies and innovators in the world?
This is the issue.

I have no problem with organic shooters. I also have no problem with Peter inventing shooters.

I DO have a problem with Peter inventing them and no one else being able to do it. I know that no one else would be strong enough to swing like he does, but the cops should all have web-shooting guns in that world. Add that in and I'd accept that Peter could invent them. Without that it's ridiculous.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I have long posited that this movie will be heavily based on "Ultimate Spider-Man". Bendis confirming his visit with Sony last year at New York Comic Con essentially convinced me this is what they're doing. The fact that they are using Gwen Stacy in favor of Mary Jane (Peter currently is dating Ultimate Gwen) also is telling. Really though Emma Stone could have been cast as either MJ or Gwen and I'd be pleased.

No one has ever stated that no one else could develop an adhesive formula similar to the one Peter invented. I could be just pulling this from the ether but I swear that I remember reading a long time ago that there was something specific about the chemical formula that Peter used that rendered it unable to be replicated by someone else. One would think that Reed or Tony or even Doom would have done so by now so I'll agree with that sentiment. I don't think it is such a big deal though. I think Ultimate Spider-Man had Peter discovering the formula from his father's notes.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I always thought a mix of organic and mechanical shooters would make most sense. Like, Peter could develop a web-secreting gland on his back, and then he'd figure out a way to dissolve the web into liquid and fire it with wrist cannons that possibly have tiny mechanical spider legs around the tip that weave it into different shapes as it's coming out.

More "plausibly", the super spider that bit him was also infested with nanobots that monitor/repair its volatile DNA. The bots start performing the same function in Peter, he figures out how to reprogram them, and one of their new functions actually becomes guiding the liquid web into whatever shape Peter imagines, and later making it disappear.

We are all soooo going to wish Sony had had the patience to just let Sam Rami have that year he wanted and made a Spidey 4 with Vulture. In the end so is Sony.
I'm not completely sold on Garfield's look, but he's a splendidly talented actor. He got raves for Never Let Me Go and his performance in The Social Network was terrific; it sold me on him as a solid, talented actor.

From what I heard, Sam Raimi's plans for Spider-Man 4 were kind of terrible. Peter and MJ getting married, dealing with twins, The Vulture as a villain (who is one of the weaker villains of Spidey's Rogues Gallery in my opinion) and creating a new character called "The Vulturess", which also sounds pretty terrible.

I have a lot of faith in Sam Raimi as a filmmaker, and I was eased by his comments that he wanted to go out with a bang and realized the faults of Spider-Man 3, but I don't blame Sony/Columbia for rebooting the franchise, either. The cast, including Tobey Maguire (who is pushing 30, playing a character traditionally viewed as a high school teenager), aren't getting any younger and we've already had three films from Raimi and that cinematic universe. I'm open for a new interpretation.

Also, the film's director, Marc Webb, is wonderfully talented. If you want some validation on that just watch his debut feature film (500) Days of Summer, which was one of my favorite films from 2009.

I'm willing to give this reboot a chance.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Having read a purported treatment for "Spider-Man 4" and remember reading all of the rumors and reported characters, sounded truly horrid. It was described by one reviewer as essentially being "Spider-Man 3 Part II". John Malkavitch had been confirmed as the Vulture a week before Sony bailed on the project lol. I don't remember the twins part or Peter and Mary Jane being married in the movie...but I wouldn't be surprised. The Vultress character was someone completely new but also a mesh of the Black Cat since it was supposed to be Felica Hardy and Anne Hathaway was being heavily considered for the role at the time.

I'm willing to give this a chance. Everything they've done so far is taking things in the right direction.

I see no connection between that and the airy bed-head in the pictures linked above.

Still no news about who they are planning to cast as Mary Jane? So they aren't going to use her for this movie?
