Not if Joss Whedon is writing it. The weaker the woman, the more men she can easily take down.
That's what I was trying to imply. I don't want Black Widow to go all "River VS Reavers" on the enemies.

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

I'm not really excited for yet another Spider-Man origin film, but I love Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. I'll check out the movie, but I really hope he's in the costume by the end of Act 1. The Sam Raimi film is barely ten years old and everybody's seen it, just gimme a great Spider-Man adventure.

Meh. Of course, whether or not the film is any good remains to be seen. But the trailer did nothing for me -- other than make me think, "Hey, I've seen this movie before!"
Yep, same here
Totally agree. The main feeling that this trailer inspired in me was, "This film is totally unnecessary." Nothing they showed us really excited me or made me terribly inclined to see to see the film.
You summed it up nicely. I totally agree.

This movie is no more or less necessary than the first three were.

I've never understood that complaint.

From all appearances it's showing us most of the same story beats as a film that that came out only 9 years ago. If they're going to make a new Spider-Man film, make a new Spider-Man film, not a remake.

At /Film, they describe the footage shown at Comic-Con:

I think it's way too early to make that kind of judgment. We've only seen a couple minutes of out-of-context footage. We still don't know what the overall plot is, only that Peter gets his powers during it.

Which is why I wrote "from all appearances" up above. If they show us new stuff, I'll revise my judgement. Until then, this looks like a miss for me.

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

My point is it's way too early to be judging either way. Obviously we're going to see more as production goes along, and I don't think the finished product is going to end up being as similar to Raimi's movie as you seem to think it will. The presence of Peter's parents in the Comic-Con footage makes me think there's going to be a subplot dealing with them and why/how they died, which would be a pretty significant departure from the Raimi/Maguire films.

Let's review. So far I've seen:

-Pictures of a Spider-Man costume that I hate. He looks like a basketball, for God's sake.

-A trailer that confirms that they're recycling a number of elements from the 2002 Spider-Man movie (Peter as a high school outcast, getting bitten and discovering his powers, Peter pining after a seemingly unattainable girl, etc.)

-That they're touching on a plot point I've never really liked, the idea of Peter Parker's parents being spies.

Don't get me wrong, I'd like to like the movie, but they're making it really really hard for me.

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

Well, I think all that can be asked of anyone is that they keep an open mind about the whole thing. You said you at least want to like the movie, which I'd consider encouraging.

I admit I'll probably wait for reviews before I firmly commit either way on seeing it, though I have been an Andrew Garfield fan since Parnassus.

I want to like pretty much any movie that's being adapted from characters that I love. But my love of those characters extends to staying away when I think they're being done badly. I still haven't seen either of the Fantastic Four movies because I thought they were largely miscast and bad-looking. I couldn't get through an entire television showing of Daredevil because I thought it missed the mark. I've got similiar doubts about whether or not the upcoming Tintin movie looks up to par.

If I think that this Spider-Man movie will be a bad treatment like those movies looked, I have no problem with skipping it, staying home and reading a Spider-Man comic book instead.

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

They maybe retelling the origin again but they're doing so in a different way than "Spider-Man" did and seem to be exploring a lot more of Peter's back story than the first film did. It is my belief that one of the main differences between Rami's trilogy and Webb's trilogy is that the latter is going to attempt to tell one ongoing story throughout the trilogy while adding new characters to the story as opposed to Rami's self-contained style with continuing characters.

This film isn't going to be for everyone. The first three movies weren't for everyone. For someone who was straight up against this film from the start, I've come all the way over to being excited for it. It might not seem like the film is trending on new ground at first but perhaps the subsequent trailers may change people's minds as I've been changed. If not that's cool too.
