    Honestly, I think the idea behind that is kinda cool, but yeah, the actual execution of the trailer was pretty laughable.

    Awful, awful trailer. I'm so glad studios don't let fanboys direct their big bugest superhero movies.

    Marvel is letting a fanboy direct their biggest superhero movie yet, but fortunately that particular fanboy understands how movies actually work.

    The last Spiderman director was a fanboy too, albeit of silver age Marvel.

    Well, was Raimi a fanboy or just a fan? There is a difference, especially when you are anywhere upwards of 25.

    IIRC Rami said he was a fan and used to read Spider-Man when he was a kid. Not sure if he was a hardcore fan like Joss.

    I'm gonna add some Star Trek into the mix.

    Ya know, if Spock was in the movie he could be The Sub-Mariner!

    Uh what? Sony doesn't own the rights to Namor.

    They sure are giving alot of the plot away aren't they. I feel like I'm ready for the sequel and this movie is old news. Hope it's all misinformation, cause it's all just TOO MUCH information.

    Even so. I gotta say Spock did manage to get some swimming done in 'The Voyage Home', so it's kinda like he's halfway there.

    It's pretty simple to figure out the connections

    Connors is Gwens boss at Oscorp

    Connors worked with Peter's parents at Oscorp

    Actually we barely know the plot...the synopsis was just recent I believe. I'm actually kind of glad we won't be seeing Norman in this movie. I think he'll be a looming presence just because of the OsCorp location. We might see a picture or two. I think I've said from the start we would probably see him in the second film. @Cosmic Question...what the hell does Spock swimming in "The Voyage Home" have anything to do with Sony not owning the rights to Namor???

    I'd imagine it's a reference to Zachary Quinto being a perfect cast choice for Namor :techman:

    ^ Yeah he'd be great. I just can imagine The Rock exclaiming "IMPERIUS REX!!!" much more enthusiasticly and with pomposity the line requires lol.

    I don't know Namor since the '70s, but, I think Daniel Dae Kim could make an excellent Namor look as well (Consider Matheson with shorter hair from B5: Crusade)

    But, yea Quinto looks like he walked straight off the page
