That was my assumption as well: Norman whipped that up when his brain went all .

I'm still not a huge fan of this version of the suit, but otherwise this looks pretty good. Love Dennis Leary as Captain Stacey. No glimpse of JJ yet, though. My one wish was that they would keep JK Simmons, but alas...

A new trend in reboot movies is to hint at future characters in the first movie but not show them.

Man of Steel- No Lex but he'll probably be mentioned.

Amazing Spider-man- No Osborne but we see his company.

No JJ also but the daily bugle trucks have been spotted.

Well even if they skipped the origin, there would still be a strong "been there, done that" feeling to it all, because we've already gotten 3 movies of Spidey fighting someone, swinging around the city, and being acrobatic as well.

We already basically know what that LOOKS like, so it's going to be hard to make that ever feel as new or exciting as it once was.

If memory serves, we saw the Goblin helmet in the lab. Didn't we? I'll admit, I haven't seen the flick in a while.

You can make that same argument with the Batman films and #8 is coming out this summer.

Ah, ok I'm out of the loop then. Last I remember, John Slattery was going to play him.

^ That was only ever a rumour. It was fairly quickly dismissed, IIRC.

Quite a few people, myself included, are hoping that JK Simmons will 'do a Judi Dench' and return for the reboot.

True. My point was just that it doesn't make sense to complain only about the origin story being rehashed, when there are so many other elements that are likely to feel familiar as well.

^^I'm not at all ready to see Judi Dench play JJJ, but thank you very much for the imagery...(shudder)

It's a mask that Norman had at home, a tengu Goblin mask.

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

While acknowledging the business aspect of film, I also see it as a creative and artistic enterprise. Much like going to see a play is interesting to see how new actors and new directors will interpret the source material, I feel the same way about film.

If an interesting director and interesting actors want to take a shot at reinterpreting a film that came out yesterday, I'm all for it. Hell, if interesting artists and creatives want to release film versions of the same thing on the same day, I'm still interested.

Two Batman movies, one directed by Fincher, one directed by Aronofsky, both telling the same origin story, out on the same day? My only question would be which one to see first!

I couldn't care less about whether I've "seen this story before." I only care about whether it's interestingly and creatively done.

Webb and Garfield interest me and I'm looking forward to seeing their interpretation.

Trailer looks pretty badass and I wouldn't mind seeing it in 3D. It kind of has 90's TAS feel to it. I hope Dr. Connors is redeemed and not killed at the end. I like that Peter is making the web slinging material.

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

I know people are comparing it to the Raimi films (all of which I love, even 3), but honestly after the footage I saw this one just seems to be on another level.

They could have skipped the origin story altogether. Audience is smart enough to realize that it's a remake with new background stories for the characters.

^ They could have, but maybe, just maybe, the origin was integral to the story they wanted to tell.
