While I'm in full on geek mode, I don't dare not make a thread about the The Amazing Spider-Man movie as well. I'd be an *** to not. Two trailers for Mr. Parker as well, the first one a preview aired during the Captain America movie, and the second just recently released. First being pretty standard, ho hum fare.
The second, however, shows great promise. The last three, Sam Raimi, movies were good (Okay, maybe not so much the third one ...). Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the heck out of them, but there was something missing. Parker being a smart ***. That's a huge part of his character, and I just don't feel it lived up to that. Again, obviously it's a trailer so you can't draw conclusions. But a few lines in the second trailer really have my hopes up. Also we're going with Gwen Stacy, and Dennis F'in Leary as George Stacy! Martin Sheen as Ben Parker is an interesting choice as well. Good actor, but I kind of thought the last guy looked the part. Speculation on my behalf, but sequels mean a chance to live ac -- well, CGI the Bridge Scene, which I will openly admit I will probably cry. This one, though, strictly introductary (well, except for Ben obviously ...), so I doubt they'll get that far. Anyway, here's the newer, better, commercial.
Edit 1: I haven't seen J. Jonah. Jameson yet. I don't guess it's too late to ask for J.K. Simmons again, is it?
Edit 2: Oh, and mechanical WEBSHOOTERS! /squee
Edit 3: And no Bruce Campbell. That kind of disappoints me. I was always saying how awesome it would be if he showed up as Mysterio, and go on a long rant about how he knew who Spider-Man was, and how he was always there and Peter never noticed. That would have been awesome. A geek can dream, I guess.
