    There will probably be a break after this trilogy. Then Marvel/Disney will make a concerted enough to try and get the rights so they can do films in their universe.

    That one in the pants is funny to me. And the eyes are slimmer.

    Man, I keep going back and forth on this costume. I liked it at first, then hated some of the other pics that came out... and now I actually think it looks cool again.

    And I know I'm alone here, but I think the dark eyes look kind of badass.

    I love how the eyes look. They're maybe my favorite part of the costume.

    "Midtown Science High School"? You're lucky to find a public high school with a half-way decent science program, let alone one dedicated to science entirely...

    Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

    Sounds like Bronx Science (Bronx High School of Science).

    Perhaps Norman Osbourne is funding the science department. We won't see Norman but we could get a small line.

    Peter-The new Osbourne microscopes are in!

    So they're really going with a teen Spidey this time around? I figured with Garfield and Stone being in their 20s (Garfield pushing 30) they'd go for University level Spidey right off the bat.

    It was rumored early on that the story would feature Peter Parker in high school. Then it was rumored that he would actually be a freshmen in College....obviously now we're in high school. As for the sign...who knows the context of it.

    Funny, because he only met Gwen in University. In High school he went out with Betty Brant.

    Sigh. While that is true. Gwen attends Midtown High in "Ultimate Spider-Man" and in "Spectacular Spider-Man".

  18. So I finally got around to seeing '500 Days of Summer' last night... and my views on this new Spider-Man movie did a complete 180.

    '500 Days' was pretty much "Peter Parker: the movie", albeit slightly more hipster-ish 20s than HS, but still. A really fun and creative film... I enjoyed it, and I loved how it captured the "feel" of NYC at times too.

    As long as Webb can do a solid job on the action hero sequences, my anticipation for this movie just shot wayyy up.

    ^ Yes!!! This is why I was thrilled when it was announced that Webb would be directing the reboot. "500 Days of Summer" has been one of my favorite films of the last few years and I thought to myself that Joseph Gordon Levitt would have made a wonderful Peter Parker had they decided to go for a college age Peter Parker.

    Not entirely connected to the new movie but JK Simmons, J. Jonah Jameson in the last trilogy, talks about the decision not to continue with that series and the fact that he's voicing JJJ in an animated series. The Judi Dench/ M comparison, often raised in this thread, is also mentioned:
