How do we know this will be a trilogy?

Everything's a trilogy nowadays. I'm surprised they didn't try to stretch The Hobbit out into three movies instead of two.

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.
Agreed. I recently rewatched the first two Raimi movies, and while they're certainly a lot of fun, the stories and characters were about as thin and simplistic as can be.

From the trailer alone, Webb's movie already looks to be much more interesting and complex.

We know it's going to be a trilogy because everyone is locked up for three movies. I believe the original reboot announcement was for a trilogy as well.

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

Tthe tone and look of the film are different enough based on the trailer and pics we've seen so far, that I'm more than willing to give this a chance. Sure it might be covering a similar story in this, but it looks to me like the way their going about this is quite different. Think of it as Amazing Fantasy #15 compared to Ultimate Spider Man's Power and Responsibility arc.

I think we've seen enough of Peter Parker's life. The Raimi films were 99% Peter Parker and 1% Spider-Man. His backstory was taken care of in the first film...no reason to rehash it.

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

I disagree. I find the use of his parents in any manner fascinating. I don't believe the Rami films once touched on his parents (while most Spider-Man fans may dismiss this as not being important I would disagree it's important because of how it effects Peter). His back story is what makes him the character and hero we all know he becomes. The loss of his parents and his relationship with his Aunt and Uncle are extremely important character pieces.

@Darth Pipes..."Captain America: First Avenger" changed your mind, perhaps this film will too my friend

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

I have to agree with a general sentiment here. I have practically zero interest in this reboot. The previous three films did a good job with Spidey even if the third film was a disappointment. I can understand switching gears with a new director and new cast, but the vibe I'm getting from this and the "starting from scratch" again mindset is turning me off.

I wonder if I'll feel the same when they reboot the Batman franchise after Nolan is done. Will they retell the origins or just go ahead and do Batman stories?

I know reboots are nothing new in film and are as old as film itself, but it's getting really tiresome and overdone. Presently the only character I see that really needs to get back on track is Superman and I'm hoping that Man Of Steel can do it. It's just a damned shame we have to wait two more years to find out. At least in the interim we have the DCU direct-to-dvd animated films with quite a few of them being enjoyable and entertaining. The animated films seem to be able to get their act together a lot easier than the live-actions and they do go forward with different actors (voice actors anyway).

I really don't care for the new costume---he really does look like a bastketball and the overall design looks dumb. Raimi's films nailed the costume. And is it with Parker having a web coming out of his neck??? Also never cared for the Peter's parents as spies idea.

I only wish they had done the Lizard in S3 instead of Venom and Sandman. I can't help but feel that would have been so much better.

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

that's where the spider bit him, so that must have something to do with it.

who says they're spies in this? they could be going off to have a meeting with someone about Richard and Edward Brock Sr. selling their cancer-curing 'suit'...

Nah. More likely they are off to a key party.

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

In the 616 universe they're Shield agents, now obviously because of rights issues they can't use Shield they could still be spies for the CIA or something. I believe it's been mentioned that they are indeed spies and that is the "secret being kept" that Peter mentions in the trailer.

When you say "rights" do you mean because it's a Columbia production?

If so, that seems like WB silliness. Isn't S.H.I.E.L.D. a Marvel property first?

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

Yeah I was talking about Columbia/Sony having the rights to the film. I dunno if we can have two versions of Shield or that Marvel Studios would be okay with that. Knowing how execs think they might think we'd be confused by two Shields lol.

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

Well, I only ask because Norton Hulk was Universal, right? So it would seem like it wasn't a studio related thing.

I mean there's no reason they could have Gregg cameo has their handler. They wouldn't even have it call him by name; it would just be a nice nod.

As I suggested, to not on the grounds it my "confuse" audiences because of canon overlap, just seems like the WB embargo BS.
