Dude, it's a Pez dispenser. Let's wait until we actually see how he looks on-screen before we start complaining.

You would think, given we've had effective CGI dinosaurs for nearly twenty years, the producers could have created a look that conveyed human emotion in a reptile face. Hell, look at the raptors in Jurassic Park.
I think CGI work as a whole has taken a nose-dive since Jurassic Park. There's elements of brilliance and great photo-realistic effects here and there (see: District 9) but a lot of special effects any more for want of a better term look phoned in.

Look at the "creature effects" in Green Lantern with the various other Lanterns on the Lantern home planet or whatever. The effects of the various other Lanterns, including our titular hero, all looks corny and like, well, computer graphics or just plain cartoons. Hardly compares at all to the stuff in Jurassic Park and even in T2. Back then CGI effects took a ve-ve-ve-r-r-r-r-y long time to make. I think the CGI effects work on Jurassic Park took a year or more to do.

Now that's not to say that doing CGI these days is any easier to do, it's still a long process but it seems over-used to the point that some of the quality and nuances is lost in translation somewhere between idea and screen.

"The Untold Story"

They are really trying hard to avoid the whole "This is the same movie we made 10 years ago" vibe the film will face.

I love the new poster. Very clever and also very different from any of the promo material for the Raimi movies.

We completely glossed over Peter's parent's and how they died in the Raimi movies.

For Webb's movie Parker's parent are probably scientists working for Osborn.

That's one of the most interesting posters I've seen in quite a while.

Cool poster. Between that and the slick, sophisticated trailer, I'm really getting the sense that these people know what they're doing.

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

Peter's parents have been brought up in the comics a few times:


-One of the earlier annuals finally addressed who they were, and if I remember correctly they were secret agents or something (Perhaps part of SHIELD?)

-In the Ultimate continuity, Peter's father was instrumental in creating the Venom symbiote. If I remember correctly, the Ultimate incarnation of Curt Conners/Lizard was also involved in this; so it looks like there might be what they're aiming for.

-In one of J.M Dematteis's Spectacular Spider-Man storylines, Spider-Man finally confronted the grief about his parent's deaths.


-And then of course, the return of his parents who turned out to be evil robots created by Harry Osborn's Green Goblin.

I remember Red Skull was involved in that annual where they addressed his parents as being Cold War spies.

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

^ Yeah. I've said before that I think we could get a combination of the 616 and Ultimate back stories for Peter's parents. The "Untold Story" tag is no doubt a reference to them and other things that the Rami films didn't focus on. I have no problem with it.

it's clearly not the movie they made 10 years ago when it's got Lizard in it and Gwen not MJ.
