Webb? That seems appropriate! And I think it's been established that's exactly what he's doing.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Damn, why is he trying to turn Spider-Man into Batman?
I don't think he's taking it quite that far, it's just darker and not quite as comic booky as Raimi's movies.

Well, if fidelity to the source material is the primary concern, how do you beat this?

I thought it was just my computer.

In other words, no. I can't see them either.

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

It looks fun. It's nice to see a wisecracking Spidey and a Peter Parker who doesn't look and sound like he's going to start sobbing at any moment.

I kind of hope the plotline about Peter's parents is exaggerated in the trailer, though. As a story, I just don't find it all that interesting.

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

I saw the latest trailer and my opinion hasn't changed. I think this is an absoultely stunning looking movie as well, which I expected from Marc Webb. I can't wait to see this.

If anything, I get the impression they de-emphasized it quite a bit here to not scare people off. From interviews, Webb seemed to suggest that this was a major storyline (possibly even covering multiple movies).

I'm curious, was this ever an issue or plotline in the comics? I'm not a hardcore fan, but I got the impression Aunt May and Uncle Ben were the only ones we ever saw or heard much about.

If I recall correctly, his parents were S.H.I.E.L.D agents who were killed spying on the Red Skull. I think later on Harry Osborn and the Chameleon brought them back as robots, to mess up Peter's head.

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

in the Ultimate universe, Peter's father was a scientist who worked for SHIELD as part of the attempt to recreate the super-soldier serum as well as working with Eddie Brock Sr. on creating a 'suit' to cure cancer, which became the Venom suit. (Despite Bendis writing both USM and Ultimate Origins, he contradicts/retcons/screws up the storyline with first the Venom suit storyline and Pete's parents dying in a plane crash and then brings in the SHIELD thing and has Pete's parents killed by Banner's first Hulk-out.)

oh dear god. Can't anything in Marvel stand on its own anymore? Do they really need to bootstrap all this stuff together? It just reeks of amateurish fanboy wankism.

Parker's parents being spies dates back to 1968 - spies in the Marvel Universe usually means S.H.I.E.L.D.

It was Stan Lee himself who came up with the "Peter's parents were spies" thing.
