You know it’s Comic-Con week, don’t you? Can’t you just smell it in the air? Well, not literally, ’cause if you really could smell it you’d probably gag from the overwhelming body odor, but what I’m trying to say is, it’s Comic-Con week and finally we get a peak at those movies we’ve been anxiously anticipating for months. (Psst, keep yourself glued to Nerd Bastards for San Diego Comic-Con coverage!)
Today, it’s our first look at Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-man starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, and Denis Leary. I’m still scratching my head as to why it was necessary to reboot the Spider-man franchise so quickly. Granted, everyone agrees what was shaping into a fantastic series ended on really shitty note. Spider-man 3 was fuckin’ awful. But even so, there’s only five years between these films, Toby Maguire’s awkward Peter Parker is still fresh in fan’s minds. Are we ready to relive the origin of everyone’s favorite, wise-cracking web-slinger?
First, watch the trailer.
Now let me ask you, are you freakin’ excited to relive the origin of everyone’s favorite, wise-cracking web-slinger? Yes should be your answer, dammit, an astounding yes! I’ll admit I’m completely enamored by the fancy, spider-parkour vision. I know it’s gimmicky and clearly made to showcase the 3D, but I don’t care, it looks sweet. Everything about this flick looks edgy, and at times a little on the grittier side. I’m hoping they haven’t lost the fun and humor of Spider-man, but this is only a teaser and I’m guessing they wanted something intense and thrilling for our first look.
What do you guys think? Completely stoked for The Amazing Spider-man or are you going to go home and curl up with Spider-man 2 and big tub of icecream?
