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

My main point about Sony and Rami is that "leaving it with Rami" was never going to be an option. The two sides had butted heads essentially since "Spider-Man 2". Rami got tired of their constant interference and left (or was fired not sure what the specifics were). Sony as the rights holder dictates the direction of the film really. Same as Marvel Studios has been doing with their vision. There was also not an option to "rest the franchise" since they can not do that.

I don't blame Rami at all for being frustrated with the studio interference. I'm actually curious to see how much influence they have had over Marc Webb. He's probably had Avi in his ear as well barking about this and that.

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

People need to let go. Raimi's gone, get over it

It's not like he's the only guy in the world who can make a Spider-Man film. I'm looking forward to a fresh take. We got two excellent films and one decentish (I don't dislike 3 as much as others do, but it's still a step down from 1&2) from Raimi, now we have a chance to see what someone else can do. Even if it's crap (which I'm confident it won't be) there will be another film along in a few years anyway

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

As much as I love the first two Raimi Spider-Man movies (I saw three once in theaters, and TBH I have thought about giving another try), the more I see of TASM, the more I start to think this one might end up better than either of them.

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

Here's a new interview with director Webb, where he tries to explain the difference between his and Raimi's version of Spider-Man's origin:

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

I'll grant that it is amusing that he is trying to convey to us the difference between the spider bite. We already got a different spider bite in Rami's film, the genetically altered spider, which of course was taken from "Ultimate Spider-Man". I wonder if Webb is planning on using the Oz formula in this film which should be interesting. I have stated from the start that this film is going to be heavily influenced by Ultimate Spider-Man and from the footage I've seen in the trailers and clips so far it seems like the case. I do like the fact that Gwen is working as a lab assistant at OsCorp (probably a homage to Spectacular Spider-Man where she was an assistant to the Conners).

That doesn't color me impressed. He's bit by a spider, radioactive or not. Just invoking Bay's Turtles comments doesn't lead that to being taken well.

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

Webb didn't mention Bay's Ninja Turtles, the article did as it was attempting to compare the two. The site was saying that the film could have Spider-Man fans in an argument over the nature of the spider bite just as the changes in "Ninja Turtles" have had that fandom in an uproar.

Webb was saying there was no difference in what type of spider bites people as long as it is a Spider. Also I didn't see it before but the article confirms that the origin along with what I believe will be other plot elements will be explored over the course of the trilogy, which is another thing we didn't really get in Rami's films. They had core themes that carried over into each film, but not really a over arcing plot of any kind.

This is pretty cool.

New pic, which unfortunately comes from a scanned magazine; Spidey's head is in the middle of the mag and thus is a little distorted but it's otherwise a nice shot of a battle-damaged suit.

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

"The Amazing Spider-Man" Debuts New Theatrical Poster: a new poster for director Marc Webb's Columbia Pictures franchise reboot has surfaced on AddictoMovie that puts the high-swinging wall-crawler, and his web-shooters, front and center.



"He is back and it will be amazing"?

That's the tagline now?

Seriously?

It is interesting largely only because it seems to signal ("He is back" replacing "untold" story) that Sony has perhaps decided that maybe no one wants a remake of a ten year old superhero film and they had better try marketing it as another sequel.

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

There's also a new international trailer (presumably for Japan), which contains some new footage. No sign of the 'He's back' tagline (which is pretty lame all right, but I like the poster and the trailer).

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

But it's not a remake of a film it's another adaptation of the comics...

Technically, you are correct. However, for all intents and purposes it might as well be treated as a remake.
