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

The trailer was solid, and the movie has an interesting 'feel' to it. But anecdotal reaction from people i know at least, every other reaction has been the same "a new Spider-Man already!? It's only been a few years". the "too soon" complain seems to come up a lot.

The Incredible Hulk was only distributed by Universal, like how both Iron Man movies, Thor, and Captain America were distributed by Paramount. It was 100% a Marvel Studios production, otherwise. Coulson, for example, can't appear in any of Sony or Fox's Marvel movies because the rights to that character are owned by Disney/Marvel Studios.

It's not too soon for the kids in the audience who were born in 2002. This is their Spider-Man movie and frankly I think that's just awesome.

Those kids are only going to be 10 years old. And many of them have probably seen Raimi's Spider-Man on DVD.

10 year old kids are exactly who movies like this should be targeting.

Sure. For toys. But if that's all they were targeting, they'd probably get Michael Bay to direct it.

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

I honestly think they're targeting teenagers but are also making it accessible to watch for all ages. I dunno. I've always been of the belief that Spider-Man is for everyone, maybe that's a naive outlook to have though for a film. Especially this one.

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

the Marvel rights thing's complex, but what it basically boils down to is; Spider-Man stuff is with Columbia. Daredevil, Elektra, X-Men and Fantastic 4 is with Fox. the rest is with Marvel.

where there's overlap, like the Bugle and Ben Urich, it gets complicated. The Bugle is part of Spidey, but Urich was in Daredevil and he worked for another fictional paper.

theoretically, the X-Men could fight Doom, Daredevil could fight Magneto and the F4 could fight Kingpin, but i can't see that happening.

CBR sat down with Emma Stone during SDCC to talk about Gwen Stacy....the more I read and hear stuff from Stone the more I love her and her take on Gwen.

It's Spider-Man. The film is going to do well. It has the appeal of something new and exciting with a brand-new cast and look. It might not make as much as the previous movies, but the curiosity level will probably help it quite a bit at the box office.

True. The film could be two hours of this, and it will still make 700 million dollars.

Yeah, but I want my ten year old to have a better Spider-Man movie than Raimi's. I'm like the only guy who had the guts to admit he didn't like Raimi's take. I feel as vindicated as those Philistine's who hated Ang Lee's Hulk did when the Edward Norton version came out.

Uh, hokay... Raimi neatly caught the original sensibilities of Spider-Man and those comics. He essentially did a very respectful job of it. But instead you'd rather have something of a Nolan-esque representation which isn't what the original comics were like.

Where did Admiral James Kirk mention he wanted a Nolan-style Spider-Man?

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

It would be incorrect to call Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man "a Nolan-esque representation" if that is what Warped9 is attempting to imply. I would really recommend reading a couple of Webb's interviews regarding his intention for this movie. It will give a better idea of what it will be like in tone and style.
