HOW COULD YOU CANCEL SUCH A WONDERFUL SERIES MARVEL????
Hello Tumblr. It’s been awhile hasn’t it? I’m sorry i forgot about you. Last post was in November? Oh god. Lots of geek stuff has happened over the course of two months. Green Lantern, Green Hornet, Spiderman, Batman, Marvel, DC yadda yadda yadda….
So let’s start shall we?
Now, obviously, the glaring news in superhero geekdom is……
Wow. Just wow. Look at that beauty. No, not the boy, the suit. Sleek, stylish and well in the budget of young Pete Parker, and mechanical webshooters! Whey! Those are nice wink to the fanboys isn’t it? Love the new symbol and how the suit fits to the boy’s skinny frame. It’s pretty cool.
Now, let’s move on to the rant yes?
What is with all the negative reaction?
Is it because the shot looks like the direction is going to the ‘grim-and-gritty’ machine? please. Personally, i think the whole “OHGODTHEYREGOINGTOMAKE(insert superhero name here)GRITTYBECAUSEITWORKEDWITHBATMAN”thing a bit overblown. Look at him, he’s tore up, there are dirt on his face and freaking claw marks on his chest! HE LOOKS LIKE SHIT. This doesn’t prove that Webb’s Spiderman won’t crack jokes and be witty in the middle of battle like Raimi’s Spiderman did. Frankly, all i see here is neither how the story nor the direction will go, all i see here is a glamour shot.
Is it because how the movie takes Petey back to his high school years? It’s a reboot for fucks sake. Yes, i know that we already saw how teenaged Peter Parker gained his powers in his high school years in Raimi’s Spiderman. But didn’t we already know how Bruce Wayne’s parents died in an alley? Didn’t we already know that Superman was rocketed from this dying planet called Krypton? It’s not about what the origin story is about, it’s about how the directors execute the origin story. And if you even think that Webb will do the EXACT same thing that Raimi did in his origin retelling…. I’m gonna… I’m don’t even….. (Ape-out)
Is it because you dudes are afraid that Spidey’s gonna be the next Twilight? As long as Peter doesn’t have quiffed up hair as tall as Elvis and the story is better than “ohmygodedwardiwantyousobadbuticantbecauseyoureavampire” then it wouldn’t be.
Yes, Sam Raimi’s Spiderman(s) was awesome in every respect. Yes, Tobey Maguire may look more like Peter Parker than Brit-pretty boy Andrew Garfield. Yes, Sony may have rebooted the whole series for the tween twilight audience. But that doesn’t make it any less of a Spiderman movie. Marc Webb delivered wit and clever-yness in (500) Days of Summer and Andrew Garfield proved he can work the geek in Social Network. So interwebs, i implore thee to answer my question. What exactly is the problem?
